I know that it hasn’t been that long, but it feels like I haven’t posted in weeks. This last week of work felt especially long, with some intense days at work, shopping for X-Mas presents, getting my apartment ready for Jeff’s visit… and reading tons and tons of Harry Potter. Jeff bought the books for me a little bit before the seventh one came out, and so I decided to start reading them. Summer came along, and I was doing well, but then got caught here in Kitsune Noir-ville.
Well, Harry Potter has managed to magic (har) it’s way back into my heart, and has stolen me away from, the interweb. I finished book five earlier today, thens started to read book six, and finished that around 11:15 pm. I’ve never been so delighted by a series of books, and my only regret is having asked Jeff about the things that happened in the books.
Anyhow, that’s where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing, and I’m going to get back on track soon-ish, though the holidays are coming, and I may disappear for a little while because of them. But until then, I’ll try and give 120% back into this lovely home I call a blog. Or would it be the other way around?
I’m really glad to be posting again, especially when it’s something rad like new Os Gemeos work. The photos are from an old Lithuanian art school that looks like it could use some Os Gemeos love. Once again they don’t fail to impress. I love the pattern of the guys pants in the picture above. All of the small details in their work is so amazing.
Is it weird that I think Os Gemeos should have their own Adult Swim cartoon? I could totally see it now. It would have animation like Tekkonkinkreet , a thumping, Brazialian soundtrack, and could have a plot similar to City of God.
It would be dark, gritty, realistic, and amazing!
Thanks to Kotryna over at Pravda for the heads up!
I came across the wonderful portfolio site Colorbunch, the creative online outlet of 19 year old Philipp Schalling. I really love the image above, a cross between Daft Punk and Pink Floyd. Some of his work reminds me a bit of No Pattern, but he has a pretty wide range of styles. Be sure to watch the logo at the top when you visit. A bunch of tiny triangles pop up, and then a mini rainbow streaks across it, and if you move over it, it does it again. It’s much cooler if you just go visit it, I promise.
The last few days have been really hectic at work, which means I’m exhausted by the time I get home, which means I don’t post. Honestly I’ve been reading a lot of Harry Potter in bed. I’m on the fifth book right now and I absolutely love it. I want to try and finish book six before X-Mas, and hopefully I’ll get book seven as a present.
Things should be back to normal around here soon, and I’ll be back to 2-3 posts a day (or somewhere around there).
I was listening to KCRW yesterday morning when a loud, reverberating song came on the radio. It sounded familiar, but I couldn’t put my finger on who it was. It turned out to be a new song from The Magnetic Fields called California Girls, an Anti-Beach Boys-ian ditty about how trashy the girls around here really are. The song reminds me much more of 69 Love Songs of Holiday, and nothing at all like I, which is kind of disappointing because I was a huge fan of the last album.
Give the song a listen if you’re a fan, it’s really pretty good.
