Hu Ming was a member of the People’s Liberation Army during the Cultural Revolution. Hu’s sensual work featuring Chinese women is very surreal and provocative, it reminds me of Robert Williams’ work. Learn more about her and her work here in a great interview with the artist.
Complex put together a top ten of Nike Basketball commercials. This is not #1 but it’s a favorite. Lebron James, swimming pool.
But, you know, they have email in Europe and everything…so uh yeah, that’s kind of sick to watch your girl go crazy like that. Humans…

Them Crooked Vultures – my new favorite supergroup. Josh Homme from Queen’s of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl from Foo Fighter and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones played their first live show at the Metro theatre in Chicago last night. If you remember Dave played drums on QOTSA self-titled release I stand corrected it was Songs for The Deaf, and in my opinion he should always play drums for Queens…
“One of the hardest-hitting percussionists of his generation, Grohl seemed even more intense in this setting than he’d been during his stint with the Queens, hammering his snare with both hands to create a massive backbeat, firing off rapid fire single-stroke rolls that made his single bass drum sound like two, and playing long and complicated fills between hi-hat, snare and rack tom without ever losing the songs’ propulsive drive.”
If you missed the show….. we all did, you can read more about it here and check out some really bad youtube video’s of the performance.
