BEST PICS ON THE NET

Fuck pictures of Kardashian and Lohan and those other skanks. people miss the best stuff on the internet because they don’t know where to look.

 

ENJOY YOUR LIVES. THEY’RE THE ONLYONE’S YOU”VE GOT

Kanye West – Runaway video

I caught this on Rage a few weeks back. I hate Kanye (the man and his ego) along with the best of them, but his music and vision is just so fresh and interesting, and frankly it’s beautiful. Even the subject of the song is completely different to 100% of the other rappers out there. There’s a lot of feeling on this song, and on all the other songs on this album. Better than 808 and heartbreak, really some of the best mainstream music out there.

Doc Martens – Pierre white boots

I bought these, the coolest Doc Martens made since the original black 10 holes I started out with (and am wearing right now actually). They remind me of Tron, french design (I assume the “Pierre” in the name helps with this), a Clockwork Orange, and a host of other cool things. A work of art.

Lady Gaga Polaroid video glasses

I highly doubt any of you are coming to this blog for the latest news, so consequently I doubt this will be that new to anyone, but sometimes you come across stuff you just have to talk about, even if theres nothing new to say about it.

And behold, I give you the GL20’s, Lady Gaga’s creation from a collaboration with Polaroid of all people. Honestly I was surprised to hear about them, because really, they haven’t been relevant for about 10 years when we started getting digital cameras. The last time I remember seeing one used was in the UK office, which is now about 10 years old. And Outkast had that song that went “shake it like a polaroid peeeekcha!” from about the same time. So yeah. Who’s taking polaroids these days? Guess this is their way of rebooting themselves (I hate myself that I just used that term).

Anyway, these things looking MINDBLOWINGLY sweet. Unless they are over about $500.00 I’m getting a pair because even if I never wear them, who the hell cares? It’s a functioning piece of art if you ask me. Some people pay thousands, hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars for a painting, to me this is the same sort of thing, except it does something. And look, I don’t have high hopes for being the next Bowie, but if I ever do this is the shit I would wear while performing.

Inside the mind of someone on acid

So I’ve always been fascinated by what goes on in someones mind when they are under the influence of mind altering substances such as weed, LSD and mushrooms (the trippy drugs). Being a bit of a weed smoker, I’m used to how my perceptions change but I’m also aware that other peoples perceptions under the influence of weed can differ drastically from mine. As for acid and mushrooms, honestly, I’m a bit scared to try, so the idea of how those drugs affect peoples perspective has always been something of a mystery and a curiosity.

I did try this herbal version of acid once (it was supposed to contain LSA, the precursor to LSD) and even on a super low dosage I wound up not being able to handle it and having a horrible time. For those people who can handle such intensity I have nothing but admiration for being able to push the frontiers of mind exploration (god I must sound like the most massive hippy), but I don’t know that it’s for me.

Anyway, if you’re like me and are curious but don’t really want to actually do acid check out this article. Back in the day, the US government did tests with acid (to see how it worked and whether they could weaponize it) and this one particular test involved simply giving a dose to an artist, and getting him to draw while under the influence. The result? Such cool drawings. enjoy 😀

that's meant to be a face by the way

Mind blowing parkour

I know it’s been ages since I updated, but I’ve been super busy doing things like 11 shifts in a row without a day off and having a life (socializing with other homo sapiens) and between that and sleep I haven’t felt very motivated to do much writing. Anyway recently I came across some of the most incredible parkour videos I have ever seen. This guy Damien Walters is some sort of super human the way he jumps about. I’m so jealous.

Rock ‘n’ Roll is the Devil’s music

Rock ‘n’ Roll
is the
DEVIL’S MUSIC
Beware:
the hypnotic voodoo rhythm,
a reckless dance down the Devil’s road
of sin and self-destruction
leading youth to eternal damnation
in the fiery depths of hell!

I stole this from a very good blog I’ve just come across I’ll put it on my blogroll because I find it very funny.
