Canadian artist Jeff Bartels makes these stunningly hyperrealistic oil paintings of things like cameras, typewriters, and vehicles. And they’re pretty large too
I’m back to reality after 5 days and some hours watching the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones.
It truly was an experience my sleepless nights, although the ending was unsatisfying.
For years I heard about the series but it’s been years I learnt to live without a television ’cause I’m not the kind of human who spent his time sitting on a couch.
I was usually more active before the pandemic.. But since I’m on forced vacations, business are closed, and on top of all we have a curfew, there’s no much to do.
Anyhow, Game of Thrones was a fun experience overall despite some heavy-sadistic-gore-violent-scenes.
Most of the characters were great, so it kinda upsets me knowing that almost none of the actors got any of the many American award by their performances except for Peter Dinklage, whose also the only American among the actors.
It’s a total crime that Lena Headey on the role of Cersei Lannister never got an Emmy, or Golden Globe or whatever else is out there when she’s beyond SPECTACULAR on her role. One of the best actors of the show.
Along with Carice van Houten as Melisandre.
Seriously, the show was great for 7 season. But season 8, the final, was definitely not what I expected after 5ish days of fucked up sleeping hours.
I mean, this poor guy…
Frankly, I watched 8 years in almost 6 days and most characters remained strong but some others got reduced to caricatures.
Some deaths were satisfying tho:
Long story short, fantastic show!
Politics are important whether you like it or not. And as a Canadian I’m glad Americans are in a process of “normality” and decency after years of chaos.
Jen Psaki who is the new White House Press Secretary in the Biden administration is like a surreal vision of what we forgot it should be the norm… AN ADULT on the podium AGAIN!
It’s good to have back a competent person who has skills and transparency after 4 years of falsity, corruption and delusion. Well done!
Randy Rainbow and some of his most memorable characters sum it up with a Rent classic reimagined.
The only thing I’ll miss about the past 4 years is Randy Rainbow! Bye Gurl.
LEGEND Sade is one of those artist with distinctive and beautiful voices. A rare jewel in the musical panorama of singers today.
Born in Nigeria and brought up partly in England since age 4, Sade gained modest recognition as a fashion designer and part-time model, prior to joining the band Pride in the early 1980s. After gaining attention as a performer, she formed the band Sade, and secured a recording contract with Epic Records in 1983.
Her debut Album on Epic Records sold over 6 million copies and Sade was ranked #30 on VH-1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music list. But regardless of dumb lists that values an artist for how much they sale and not for how talented they are, Sade is one of a kind.
In 1992 Sade released Love Deluxe, which featured the Grammy-winning single “No Ordinary Love.” After a subsequent world tour, Sade enjoyed life away from the limelight. She became a mother, while other members of her band recorded separately as Sweetback. The band reunited to produce the critically acclaimed Lovers Rock (2000), which earned several awards.
In 2001 Sade embarked on a highly successful world tour, excerpts of which were featured on Lovers Live (2002). Sade’s first album of original material in a decade found the band wrapping new instrumentation and rhythms around the smooth vocals that had defined it since the 1980s.
Following another hiatus, Sade contributed the song “Flower of the Universe” to the film soundtrack for A Wrinkle in Time (2018). She was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2002 and promoted to Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2018.
Few of my favourite songs:
Although the height of her career were in the 80s/90s, that voice is incomparable, timeless and unique. As she is stunning and elusive.
Ladies and gentlemen, LEGEND Sade!
On the first new episode of “Real Time” since November, and just a week and a half after Trump incited a deadly riot in the Capitol, Bill Maher used the mid-show gag to celebrate Trump’s impending exit from the White House.
The means by which he did so was a parody of the Dr. Seuss classic “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” called “Pack Your Shit and Go!”
Welcome back Bill!
Tomáš Libertiny has collaborated with 60.000 honeybees to create a beeswax version of the Nefertiti bust.
Titled Eternity, the sculpture is based on the 3D model of the original portrait of the Egyptian queen.
The bust is part of the Rotterdam-based artist’s ‘made by bees’ series, which includes other pieces such as a portrait of Brutus and a honeycomb amphora.
If you’re in Amsterdam, “Eternity” is currently on view as part of Libertíny’s solo show at Rademakers Gallery through January 30. Otherwise, follow the artist’s sculptures that explore contradiction and ephemerality on Instagram.
I don’t eat junk, but I find this monogram absolute cute.
Designed by Stephen Kelleher Studio; the monogram is part of Burger King’s new brand identity. Brilliant!
Last Monday, Cadbury celebrated five decades of filling our stomach bags with diabetes-inducing deliciousness by putting out a commercial, which includes a real-life gay couple getting into some snowballing fun with a Creme Egg.
Gladly, the sound of Three Batshit Moms With Too Much Time On Their Hands One Million Moms screaming in homophobic didn’t happen in America and that’s because this ad is from Britain.
The commercial starts with scenes of a woman tongue fucking a Creme Egg, my new favorite chef baking with a Creme Egg, and a dude going from youngin’ to pepaw while eating a Creme Egg throughout the years. And the final scene is a hot gay couple having a mouth threesome with a Creme Egg. Out Magazine says that the couple is Dale K Moran and Callum Sterling and they’re together for real. Here’s Cadbury’s commercial showing you all the ways to enjoy one of their Creme Eggs.
Dirty and thirsty. I love it
In Ted Chin’s surreal dreamland, it’s not uncommon to see massive anglerfish swimming through the sky or a figure scooping up shooting stars. The San Francisco-based artist merges idyllic landscapes and outdoor scenes with fantastical details.
Ted’s Little Dream is the fictional universe that the artist created years ago and continues to work within.
