The Vines Of Brittany Furlan!

I gave up watching TV a while ago because frankly, it’s bollocks. All of it.

I turned to Vine and found Brittany Furlan straight away and she’s now my favourite person on the entire internet. Actually, I’m probably in love with her! But anyway…

Brittany’s built up a massive fanbase by making amazingly funny Vine videos and the best part is that she is completely fucking one hundred per cent off her head MAD! The best people always are, aren’t they?

You can check out Brittany’s Vine profile HERE. These are some of my favourites so far…

Amazing Fake Criterion Collection Custom Blu-Ray Covers.

From Wikipedia:
The Criterion Collection (or simply Criterion) is a video-distribution company that sells “important classic and contemporary films” to film aficionados. The Criterion Collection is dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions of the highest technical quality, with supplemental features that enhance the appreciation of the art of film. Criterion is noted for helping to standardize the letterbox format for widescreen films, bonus features, and special editions for home video.”

I’ve always said that the fans design better movie posters and covers for DVDs and Blu-Rays and today I’d like to prove it.

My Name Is Prince And I Am Petite!

Yesterday I found this:

That was made by Troy Qua. You may recognise his style from the film “Team America”.

That amazing little Prince figure is one of many and from a project called ‘Le Petit Prince’.

LP

Like I said, Troy has made loads of these wee figures and I had planned to post a few photos of them up on here so I went to Troy’s website and sadly…

“Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this – I have been issued a cease & desist order from Prince’s attorneys. This means that the Le Petit Prince project has reached its untimely end and must be removed from the internet by Friday, November 16, 4pm PST. There are many points touched upon in the order, and I will, of course, comply with their demands, whether I agree with them as matters of artistic freedom or not. I simply do not wish to fight with my hero, and it is terribly disheartening to think that he may hold ill will towards me and this project. I wrote back to the attorneys and told them I would indeed comply, but wanted to address some of the issues brought up in their letter. I’d like to share these paragraphs with you, which contains sentiments that I hold dear and true:

“Any products sold are returning no profit to me – they are simply a meager means to fund and continue the LPP project, which is a work of fine art. And this funding, I would argue, is anything but “ill-gotten gains”. That term pains me, as I do not intend, nor have I ever intended to profit from Prince without his consent. I have, in fact, refused countless pleas to recreate the sculpture and make it available for sale because I felt that that would indeed be attempting to profit illegally. The recreation of album art and iconic imagery, on the other hand, I felt was within my creative rights as an artist. This is artwork that I have made as a loving tribute to an artist that has inspired me for decades, and has shaped the person I have become. And this tribute has grown into something that I never foresaw nor intended – a joyful and positive experience for many, many people around the world. It has, to my utter amazement, brought so much happiness to so many, building a following and a momentum that has demanded it endure and expand.

I have, actually, attempted through modest connections to Mr. Nelson, to contact him to no avail. He is not an easy person to reach out to. I, on the other hand, am very easy to engage, and was actually, perhaps foolishly, hoping for contact from him regarding this project in a much more congenial form. If I had any possible way of reaching Mr. Nelson to ask him his thoughts on this matter or to propose a creative business venture, believe me, I would have. I would love nothing more, and would relish the opportunity to do so, still.”

The words “thank you” could never adequately qualify the truly staggering gratitude I feel towards everyone who fueled the passion for this project with their words of support and praise, with their love and positivity, and with their all around good will. This project grew into what it became because of you. Although I am saddened beyond words that it has reached its end, and that it has ended this way, I am also deeply grateful and happy beyond words that I’ve had this rare opportunity to make so many new friends, to make so many people smile, and to make so many tiny sets of funky clothes.

The LPP Project was about love, admiration, and positivity. It put smiles on many faces around the globe, and I am humbled by the support that LPP’s fans have shown as the project is put to bed. Let’s remember the smiles and the joy and leave a little memorial for LPP. He may not be able to be shown, but he can certainly be remembered! We had fun, didn’t we?

I hope we can continue to be in touch in another corner of this great big universe somewhere. And I hope you had fun. I know I did.

For LPP, Troy Gua signing off…

POSITIVITY PLEASE – ALL LOVE – no hate

~Troy.”

What a shame.

The Fantastic Photography Of Erik Johansson.

I discovered Erik Johansson’s fantastically imaginative photography completely by chance a few days ago which is probably the best way you can discover anything. Erik’s from Sweden and here is what he does with his time…

About Erik Johansson:
My name is Erik Johansson, I’m a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. I work on both personal- and commissioned projects and sometimes I create street illusions. I don’t capture moments, I capture ideas. To me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers I always want it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize it as realistic as possible.”
