A couple months ago I posted about what I believe to be a "stuff" graffiti artist. Last time it was marshmallows scattered for blocks. A couple days ago I saw this pile of pennies strewn all over the sidewalk.Again, pretty clever. Not anything that's hurting someone or the aesthetic environment and it will probably be gone in a few days. I'm into it.

Rarely can I say I love everything someone does, but everything Martin Margiela does is amazing. Here is a look from S/S 09 that is bananas. They made a Barbie out of it, too, which is enough bananas to split your head. Also Lady Gaga is wearing him and Jay-Z is rapping about him. Which is to say, if life were like the SATs, there would be a question like this: Tommy Hilfiger: 90's Rap: Martin Margiela: 2000's Pop, which makes him badass. Also there would be a sub question that would say: Tommy Hilfiger: monkey-faced: Michael Jackson: dead. What was the question again?

I love these snow globes depicting depressing, foreboding, surreal, and just plain ominous scenes. I actually got to see these in person last year at a Chelsea gallery, where a woman with white gloves was asking "Would you like me to shake this?". Why, yes! They are by Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz. I think I'm in aesthetic love.
