I'm not a fan
It’s 9AM, I’m late for work, and I’m about to take it out on some innocent artists. Just kidding (I mean, I am late), but I’ve actually been wanting to write about this for ages. Do you guys remember when Disney and Barney released those “high fashion” photos of characters like Minnie and Daisy? And they were all skinny-fied and weird? Yeah, no. Those annoy me and I’d like them to stop. And, although I really love when celebrities share fan art, I don’t understand the need to take someone like Nicki Minaj and draw her in this bizarre way.

Yesterday was a very quiet, very relaxed day for me. After all my running around for the past couple of weeks, I decided not to do a single thing yesterday. No movies, no hang outs, no nothing. I spent most of my day indoors trying to stay cool from the massive heat outside. I did venture out last night to grab dinner but my Monday was one of those no shower days and I loved every minute of it. I did do a few things around my new place. I hung a few more things on my walls, including two pieces that I’ve been dying to put on display in my bathroom. More »

Miley Cyrus recently covered another issue of the ever-fascinating V Magazine, and today I found out that she opened up about one of her latest artistic passions. Ya girl Miley C has been making some erotic art sculptures, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Apparently, she’s bored, high, and famous, so she might as well? Please click inside for more.

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
This is getting really crazy, really fast. A slew of celebrities were victims of a mass nude photo leak a few days ago, and I’m sure they were thinking that the situation couldn’t get much worse. Well, I think this qualifies as “worse.” But I’m also interested in hearing what you guys think. There’s an artist working on an exhibit titled Fear Google, and he plans to include the nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence And Kate Upton in his upcoming show. For reals. Click inside for more!
This year HBO‘s Game of Thrones won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction For A Contemporary Or Fantasy Series, and you’re about to see why. This new special effects reel from Rodeo FX shows some of the amazing transformations the scenes go through before they hit our screens, and it’s really fantastic stuff. For people who want to work in entertainment or movies, there’s so much beyond acting and directing—the tech stuff is, IMO, just as thrilling. Peep the video for more!

Sorry to ruin your childhoods
So … uh … yeah … Jezebel commissioned one of their in-house artists to help visualize what a few Disney Princes would look like naked so that we could get a look at what their penises might look like. Yes, really. As you can see in the gallery presented here, many Disney Princes are drawn fully and NSFWly nude … which is both fascinating and horrifying all at the same time. You can read the descriptions of the individual Disney Prince penises at Jezebel HERE but be warned, the descriptions might add to your nightmares (or delight, who knows?). Of the batch presented here, I think Prince Phillip laying on Sleeping Beauty‘s bed is the most risqué and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast provides the truly must see illustration (his uncensored photo is the last one in the gallery). Have a look around, see what you think. Do any of YOU have any particular thoughts on the nekkidness of these Disney Princes?

As you all know, Trent and I went to see Kara Walker‘s latest exhibit in Brooklyn yesterday, titled “A Subtlety Or the Marvelous Sugar Baby…” Trent loved it, I loved it. And when I say “I loved it” I mean I stood in that space very upset that my mother (formerly a professor of African, African-American, and Women’s History, a woman who took me to my first protest—against domestic violence—when I was 8, and marched in her last protest—for political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal—when she was 52, and nearing the end of her battle with cancer) and her twin sister, my Aunt Grace (also a fierce activist and journalist) were not there to experience it with me. I thought of the words of a brilliant professor of the Sufi sect of Islam who I studied with at Sarah Lawrence, when she described certain ancient, preserved places of worship in other countries, saying, “The air is different in there.” The air was, indeed, different out there. And I had some experiences (some positively breathtaking, and some disturbing) that I want to share.

So … my Saturday? Amazing! I got to hang out with a bunch of great people, I got to experience breathtaking artwork and see an amazing Broadway show … but all of that was rendered irrelevant by the fact that I got to hold in my arms the Pink is the new Blog baby Josev!!! OMG. I can’t even express how much I love that baby! Oh yeah, I got to hang out with his mom Shannon, too, but … OMG JOSEV! Adriana and I did get to enjoy a great brunch with our friend Oriana before I met up with Shannon and Josev and then it was all about that baby. The bunch of us made our way out to Brooklyn to see the Kara Walker exhibit … then it was back to Manhattan so I could see Hedwig and the Angry Inch … and then dance into the wee hours of the morning at Baracuda with music by my friend Jon Ali (with an extra special cameo by my homie Bradley from MuuMuse). Saturday = epicness. More »
