Broken English

One of my new favorite sites I’ve been checking out lately is called The Playlist. It talks about movies, and the soundtracks that go along with the movies, but in a fun, intelligent way. while reading it earlier tonight, I spotted this amazing looking move featuring Parker Posey.

Ever since Best In Show I’ve loved Parker Posey, and seeing her in anything makes me happy. But now she’s in this new movie called Broken English, and it looks pretty cute. It’s directed by Zoe Cassavetes, daughter of director Nick Cassavetes, and feature Posey as a 30-something still trying to figure out what she wants in life. But then she meets the exciting Frenchman Julien, and things begin to change.
Okay, it could possibly be pretty dumb, but I want to see it no matter what. I guess it’s had limited release, but this is the first time I’ve heard of it. Anyone know anything else?

On a final note, I think her hair looks amazing. I honestly think that’s the gayest thing I’ve ever written on this blog, haha… But it’s also completely serious. Why don’t more women these days have really dark brown hair like that? She looks so hot.
Mom, take note, you could have hot hair like that.

Spiral Galaxy M81

Spiral Galaxy M81

I don’t think there will be a time where I’m not amazed by pictures of other galaxies. The photo above is a new picture taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of galaxy M81, the sharpest image taken to date. In fact, it’s so sharp that you can see “open star clusters, globular star clusters, and even glowing regions of fluorescent gas.” This is pretty amazing considering that it’s 12 million light-years away, which is considered somewhat close to our own.

There’s something so serene about staring at photos like these. I would love to have my ceiling covered in an image like that, but it should move like it was straight out of Harry Potter. The site the image came from is going pretty slowly because a whole lot of people are looking at it from DIGG, but if you happen to be reading this Monday morning, you might have a better opportunity of seeing the full sized image.

Babystacks!

Check out the awesome work of Clayton Crocker, a desiger/art director who works under the name of Babystacks! When you visit his site, there’s only button, a black dot with the word ‘Next’ on it, that randomly shuffles through his work. At the moment there are 43 images, but yesterday I’m pretty sure there was 38, so like his information says, he really does update somewhere from daily to weekly.

The work itself is really beautiful as well, ranging from type studies to brightly colored blobs. Definitely a portfolio worth checking out, possibly daily.

Happy Endings at Lab 101

Like most things in life, things come to an end eventually. Sadly, this is true in the case of Lab 101, one of LA’s finest galleries. After six years of introducing some of the biggest artists around today, they’re closing their doors for the time being.
But instead of quietly going away, they’re going out with a huge bang! They’re having a giant farewell show called Happy Endings, featuring over 60 artists that want to show their support for this amazing gallery.

The list includes Andrew Pommier, Andy Jenkins, Andy Mueller, Bigfoot . Bwana Spoons, Dave Kinsey . Derek Hodgson, Jemma Hostetler, Kelsey Brookes, Michael Leon , Rich Jacobs, Shepard Fairey, UPSO and a ton more.

So if you’re in LA this Saturday, definitely come and show your support for one of the best galleries LA has ever had.

Layer Tennis: James Hutchinson vs. Trevor Van Meter



While this certainly wasn’t the best play of the game, I think it’s enough to give the win to Mr. Trevor Van Meter. I think he was consistently more creative throughout the game. This was a pretty cool game, especially having all the fun animations. I hope they do more of these, though I could imagine how difficult doing this would be. I’ll have to keep an eye out and see if either of the artists talks about how the experience was. All in all, a really fun match!

Well, this is the final return from Mr. Hutchinson, a really good effort. To me it looks like the guitar heroes have turned into Jay Z, Michael Jackson/Marilyn Manson hybrid, and possibly Damon Albarn from Blur. There’s also the really fun, rockstar background going on as well.
This was a really good move, and I think that James still has a chance. It’s all up to Trevor and his last move.

What’s the best way to take of invading bug monsters? Fuckin’ jam!
This goes back to the humor and creativity of Round 2, with Trevor’s art and sense of humor making this so awesome. And I love that they’re Guitar Hero guitars, not real one’s. Bonus points for massive nerdery.

Spoon Chair by Kartell

I’ve been looking on and off for a new chair for the last 6 months, and I’m starting to realize that you can’t get a comfortable or cool looking chair for under $300. Writing that just now, I feel like I should know something like this, but I suppose I was holding on to a shred of hope that I could find a great deal.

Well I was browsing through some random catalog my boss received and I stopped immediately when I came across the Spoon Chair by Kartell. It has a similar feel to a regular office chair, but it’s got some pretty sexy curves, and I love the bold colors that it comes in. It also happens to be almost $650, which is about triple the amount I was thinking of spending. But if I were to spend a bucket of cash on a chair, it would probably be this one.

If anyone has any good tips on hot/comfy chairs that aren’t a super expensive, please send them my way!

Ecopellets Office

I’m sort of in love with this beautiful office for Ecopellets, a company that takes sawdust and wood shavings and turns them into clean burning pellets for heating your home. First off, any building that glows like that at night is totally amazing. It looks so futuristic, but pleasant and inviting at the same time. I also think it’s cool that they used tin siding, giving it an industrial look, sort of like a grain silo or something you’d see at an old farm. Simple and beautiful.

The Ministry of Type

Earlier today I came across the amazing Ministry of Type, a blog that covers all things typography (weird, huh?). As soon as I started looking at it I was totally smitten, and wanted to redo my entire blog. I love that their logo is that tiny bookmark with the crown on it. It’s a really simple, but powerful site. It also helps that they post about a lot of rad stuff as well. Sometimes type can get pretty boring, or at least I think so, but they’ve definitely got some great posts. Definitely one to check out, I’m going to add them to my blogroll when I get home…
