Love these posters from New York City digital artist Peter Stults. They’re what he calls “movie posters from an alternate universe”, pairing actors and actresses to pieces outside their time. Particularly wishing I could see this version of “The Big Lebowski” – where Zappa plays The Dude - but all of them look pretty sweet. Check out a few below, then head over to his Behance to indulge in the rest.
Here’s what the obituary of a ladies’ man, foodie, natty dresser, and accomplished traveler looks like
Harry Weathersby Stamps died this past weekend, and his daughter Amanda Lewis memorialized him in a witty, at times hilarious, obituary. Ladies and gents, this is not your typical eulogy. This is a true celebration of life.
“He had a life-long love affair with deviled eggs, Lane cakes, boiled peanuts, Vienna [Vi-e-na] sausages on saltines, his homemade canned fig preserves, pork chops, turnip greens, and buttermilk served in martini glasses garnished with cornbread.”
This David Hasselhoff painting by Jon Stich is fabulous beyond words. I just discovered it ten minutes ago and it was so important that I had to share my thoughts about it right away. In fact, I don’t even have thoughts about it. I just want you to know that it exists and I’m hoping that it remains in your memory forever. I mean, just look at it.
This masterpiece is also available as a print from Etsy, so I definitely plan on breaking my no-luxuries rule and purchasing a copy as soon as possible. The silliness of it aside, it also addresses the issue with pollution.
For more kicks and giggles, have another Jon Stich painting:
I drink your milkshake. I drink it up.
On Space Time Foam by Tomás Saraceno is a really neat installation in Argentina that allows visits to frolic on three layers of transparent material (suspended about eighty two feet above the ground). In an interview with Domus, Saraceno says this about the installation:
“Let us invent an instrument that all the humans in the planet can play at the same time, so that when you play one string it reverberates in all the other strings. That will tune us all.”
My god. This is all sorts of awesome. I just read on the news that some Pixar fan decided to take his house into the sky – just like the character Carl Frederickson in the film Up. Jonathan Trappe, a cluster-balloonist, became the first person to fly a house in the air after he tied hundreds of balloons to a cartoon home. His next attempt will be to fly across the Atlantic, a flight five others have died attempting. You can check out his attempt via his indiegogo page.
In his own words, he says that flying is “about living an interesting life – for me as the pilot and those watching.” I love his his dedication to taking the road not taken. Or should I say the sky not taken?
What will you do to live an interesting life?
