Tawianese Girl Gets all Kissy Face in Paris

Yang Ya-ching is a 27-year old blogger from Taiwan, living in Paris. She has this project where she wants to kiss 100 strangers in France and have each photographed. She’s well on her way but, what I’m wondering is…why does she have to go and be such a tease? I mean, maybe these strangers are like ‘whoa, cute little asian girl wants to kiss me, maybe we can slip on down to the Seine and really spice it up?” Or maybe not.

the crazies…nice mix of film and music


Check out the trailer for the remake of the 1973 George Romero classic. The good thing is that he signed on to produce, so the film hopefully will not be butchered! I love the end of the trailer the best.

liberty-head

In 1878 lady liberty was not exactly all together. The massive head was on display at the Paris International Exhibition. Attendees to the exhibition could pay to walk around in her head. You have to admit its kind of freaky,very Planet of the Apish.

al-jourgensen

There seems to be a bit of a revival of industrial music these days, Pigface, KMFDM, and the Revolting Cocks are all out touring. Maybe it was a bad time for Trent to take a break? If you’re in the Chicago area tonight and have tickets to the Revolting Cocks show, you will get a little treat. Al Jourgensen (Ministry), joins them on stage as the special guest. He will also be with the band as they play NYC’s Irving Plaza on the 17th. After party is going to be at Crash Mansion. (btw, I really hate the name of that place, sounds like a video game)

Booooooom’s Where The Wild Things Are Forts Contest

wherethewildthingsare_forts

Just the other day, a couple of us were talking about converting a loft space into a series of forts.  Who knew others would be thinking along the same lines?  Booooooom’s contest is simple and ends really soon (October 12th):

“Where The Wild Things Are is filled with references to building a world out of things from your everyday life and that’s exactly what we want you to do!

We want you to create a fort! Use garbage bags, tree branches, tablecloths, prosthetic limbs, wood, gold, whatever you got!”

So you have the weekend to get lifted and make something fun.  Doesn’t sound that bad, right?  More info on submission and all of that jang, here.
