Like A G6.

Like a G6 by Far East Movement.

Music Monday. I feel absolutely terrible about the long hiatus. I haven't blogged since... beginning of May. So heres my REVIVAL. Only, I'll probably be dead again until after the school-hectic-craze-faze is done.

A lot of artists out there use music as their muse, to find inspiration and ideas, or even just to "zone out" from the outside world. I, as a photographer/writer/wanna-be love to listen to Techno and house music while snapping or writing. It gives me a THRILLLLLLLLL that urges me to think with ease.

Give the song a listen, and drop a comment below telling us what song YOU listen to while spilling out your imagination?
Are you a KISS-er, Elton John-er, David Bowie-r, Cyndi-er, Madonna-er, Kurt Cobain-er ....?

The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living

I have a question for you all.

Should there be a limit on art?

Take a look at the following, and perhaps it might help you form an answer.
This is The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1992) by the English artist Damien Hirst. It is a Tiger Shark preserved in formaldehyde in a vitrine. Now this will appear awfully offensive to some, but I actually enjoy this piece very much. Why? Because it has a concept, and it's clear. It's sharp. Maybe part of the reason why it's so clear is because this artwork is a potential offense. When I see this, the word "denial" runs through my head. It's true; when a loved one dies, there is a denial that accompanies their death. But that is a feeling, and a visual. He brought that feeling to life.

Later on in 1993 Hirst did a similar piece known as Mother and Child Divided:
Similar to the first one, this consists of a mother cow and her calf cut in half and once again, preserved in formaldehyde.

Sooooooo...let me ask you again. Do you think there should be a limit on art? Or should the boundaries continue to be pushed?

How many coffins before there's a crown?

I have been neglecting the blog and I feel so bad. School has been killing Fatty Feliux and I, and it will continue to do so until the end of June when exams are over...sigh. But we'll try to blog as much as possible 'til then. Sorry for being slow, loves. x

Anyways, back to the blog post.

Robert Carter is a British-born award-winning Canadian illustrator. His work ranges from realistic to surreal, but all of it is full of great skill and concept. Check out more of his illustrations on his website

Sgt. Shakespeare, What a Waste
Halo, Fraud

The other thing I wanted to share was the new Lights video for Second Go which premiered yesterday. It's so cute, and I love how she just paints everywhere...put simply, this video is a visual pleasure. Very fun to watch. Enjoy!

Like a punk rock chick...

With hair just like Rihanna..

Hola! We're late again this week, but heres the Music Monday!

Could It Be You - H.Wood. This catchy and upbeat song is slowly getting mass radio play, and I've taken quite a liking to it

Sorry we've been a bit slow, school is soon coming to an end (HUZZZAAAH!!!) and we're getting cramped with culminating work. No worries though, all will come to end come late June, and we'll be FREEEEEEEE!
SO. Check out the song below, and have a fantastical rest of the week!

Ribbons Ribbons Ribbons

Egad. Its Lady Gaga's old tunes for Music Monday. Recorded before her Fame-days and produced by Rob Fusari, these 3 songs were anxiously waited upon by her little monsters, and just this past week, they were leaked. Said Monsters went on a Twitter spree and were ecstatic about the leaked songs, and to be honest, so was I. I'm not as big of a fan as Nedda Ebo is, but one thing I know for sure, Gaga has got the chops and the talent--- in other words, she's slowly taking over the world. Unwrap the leaked songs below by clicking the play button!


All the girls they like their presents... like their presents when boys wrap 'em up. (Oh yes, we DO)

Blueberry Kisses.

Blueberry kisses,
My lips do miss his, oh yeah.

Sexy Ugly.

Everybody wants to be like us,
Filthy glamorous.

Have a fantastic Monday

P.S. The photo of the blueberry heart is from the Flickr of Sara Hazeldine.Check 'er out!

Mr. Fairey

Shepard Fairey is one of my favourite modern street artists. His art revolves around politics, our fears, the issues we don't want to confront, and his execution is always simple, yet bold and powerful. This man knows how to make a statement. His Obey Giant campaign, started in 1989, changed people's perspective on street art. However, his Hope campaign (Barack Obama) from 2008--which I'm sure most, if not all of you, are familiar with--took his popularity to a whole new level.

He is currently doing a May Day exhibition at Deitch. Read more about that here.

Cant Be Tamed

So, I realized today after Nedda Ebo told me in English class that the Music Monday post didn't work yesterday. So, let me just rephrase and reword a couple of things to make it WORK TODAY.

Before that face of disgust comes on (if you're not a fan of the singer)... this weeks Music Monday is......................
Can't Be Tamed-Miley Cyrus.
Give the song a listen first (then you can judge whether you like it or not). It's got kind of a Britney Spears/Xtina-esque vibe, and seems like it'll do good on the charts.

Nedda Ebo isn't that big of a fan of MC, but this song is quite catchy. I've taken a liking to it, loving the beat and the vocals behind them. A sigh of relief may be let out to all of those who aren't big fans of Miley, because on June 22nd, her last album is being released (as of now). She wants to focus more on movies, and I think this is a good song to be released for the first single! She'll be hosting the MMVAS(MuchMusic Video Awards) in Toronto Canada this year! Quite exciting.

The video just came out today, CHECK IT OUT! I LOVE IT!!

Jamie Nelson

I'm sure some of you are familiar with either her work or her name. She is my favourite fashion photographer, she isss...Jamie Nelson.
The New York-based photographer's work has been showin in numerous international publications, ad campaigns, and billboards. Some of which include Cosmo UK, Vanity Fair Italy, Lula, Nylon, Olay, Make Up For Ever, Warner Brothers, and Disney!

What I love about her photography is her ability to capture faces so gracefully and flawlessly. Her strength seems to lie in close-ups, which is rare; portraits are one of the hardest things to photograph.

I encourage you all to visit her website,, and view all the photos she has posted up. You won't be disappointed!
