Javier Pacheco

I'm totally responding to these pieces by Javier Pacheco. Not sure if it's the weather, my recent insomnia or anxiety over the movie Paranormal Activity but I am feeling a lot like the little guy above.

I don't claim to be a theater buff but Jude Law did an awesome job as Hamlet! He did a great job of keeping the show moving with high energy, though I can't say the same for the rest of the cast. It almost felt as though Jude was doing a contemporary spin on Hamlet while the rest of the cast was lost in traditional Shakespearean training... not bad but not as entertaining. Gugu Mbatha-Raw played Ophelia, and while her singing was fun, here character didn't really develop until she goes crazy and then she dies... but then again so does everyone else... sorry for the spoiler ;)

Overall it was fun and I definitely recommend going to see it. The theater is cold so bring a sweater... It might be an effect to relate the stage with the audience since its snowing on stage but that was probably just coincidence.

P.S. Can someone re-crop the photo of JL on the cover of the Playbill... the widows peak is distracting and it would look so much better if it would cut about half an inch down :)

Ian Francis

Some art I love in a gallery were I can leave it when I'm done looking at it... Ian Francis' work, on the other hand, I want in my apartment.

Dreaming in prints

The fashionisto always pulls such great images. This is from an editorial in Metro.POP.

Sniff from karolina sobecka on Vimeo.

Interactive projections are becoming more and more popular but a puppy that can sense if my behavior is aggressive or friendly... that's amazing- his name is Sniff and was created by Karolina Sobecka :)

Bleeding Billboard

Wooster Collective featured this billboard that promotes road safety in New Zealand. It's pretty great except that if I was driving I would probably be so intrigued by the sign that I would crash, haha
