Give it a couple minutes before it get's good. Towards the end, it's an outlandish dance-orama vid. with Barbarella-like visuals.

::Michel Gondry for HP::

Director Olivier Gondry directs brother Michel (yes, first name basis) in this spot for HP.
So far, the brand has had commercials featuring writers (Paulo Cuello),athletes(Sean White),designers(Vera Wang),musicians(Jay-Z), and now directors(Michel Gondry). I really am enjoying where our commercial generation is going by putting such talented people like Michel in ad's that have mass appeal.

Okay, so I think I'm a little dance music video'd out! The idea is as played out as up close shots of the barrel of a gun. But...I must admit, there is something about director Patrick Daughters execution in his dance-orama video's that comes off sublimely original.
In this video for artist Feist, feels the beat,beat,beat go through her body that makes her get her dance on...in...an airport. Survey says, not bad.

Director: Patrick Daughters
Prod.Company: The Directors Bureau
Song: My Moon My Man

Travel:Stay....with me.

It's in the name. It's chic and it's basic. This minimal home away from home, is situated in Barcelona.
They name their rooms by clothing size: XL, L and M. In all of them you'll find a LED light system, a TFT screen, internet access, or a common zone with a computer wired to the net. I find the design and coloring, reminiscent of Dario Argento's 1977 gory classic "Suspria". You be the judge.

About::"The creative photographer unit of Zoren Gold and Minori started their collaboration in 2000. Zoren and Minori (aka:MI-ZO) explore the free form of photographic expression. Their shared curiousity of 'how to push the boundary of photography' as an image creation, has lead them to start mixing photography with other mediums such as drawings,collage,hand-made props and computer graphics"

It’s without notice, that it’s a remarkable feat for a woman to challenge political corruption, for countries that may vie against each other in the war for equality and human rights.
But there is one woman in particular, that has taken on the undeniable issue of political injustice head on and in ways that some may think of as “extreme”.
Her name is Regina Jose Galindo. She is a performance artist and a Guatemalan native of small stature. However, the issues she challenges are without a doubt of gargantuan proportions.
“It’s Regina José Galindo’s own body that is put at risk in Himenoplastia, cut up, gaping, stitched up raw and without anaesthetic.
The subject is very topical. This surgical procedure aimed at reconstructing the hymen so that it gets back its “virginal” condition, which affects a large number of women all over the world. A sign of masculine domination, this act establishes the lie as an authorized practice.”
Regina has released her very first book that is available through the Italian publishing company, Vanilla Edizioni.
The book features graphic details as well as political context of her performances.
I am incredibly proud to have this amazing woman as a cousin. She is inspiring and absolutely unstoppable in her cause, which helps me and hopefully other women alike to pursue and persevere with courage.

The Tale Of The SPLASHER!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

There is a stir amongst the street art scene of New York! There is phantom menace (aka: The Splasher) on the loose and he or she has something to prove. What exactly? We’re not too sure of. It could be the attempted demise of the bourgeoisie culture or maybe there is no purpose at all. Radicalism at best, this vandalism on vandalism article has been published in NY Mag last week, with a story that has no end.
