NYC > LAX

The TV Guide

And so … I’m home again. Because my flight out of NYC was fairly early in the day for me, I had to pack up my shizz and get to JFK Airport in time for the sometimes painfully long flight home. And yes, the flight yesterday was painfully long but really not too terrible. I got home early enough to relax for a bit before David and I went out for a reunion dinner last night. It wasn’t the most exciting of nights but it was nice to be home again. More »

Watch: ‘On The Road’ Releases An International Movie Trailer

Plus, Check Out the Kerouac Drawn Bookcover for 'On the Road'
And the 'Beat' Goes On

Back in March we got to check out the first movie trailer for the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s classic novel On the Road. Today we get to check out a newer, international trailer for the film. As you can see, this new trailer features a lot more footage from the film … footage that, thankfully, eases my concerns about this film. On the Road is such an important book that careful attention must be paid to ensure that a film version does the book justice. I am liking what I’m seeing in this trailer. I hope the movie doesn’t disappoint.

In other On the Road news, a hand-drawn sketch that Kerouac himself drew as the potential book cover for Road has come to light … and you simply must give it a look. Check it out below. More »

Love Bomb

The TV Guide

Yesterday, all across the US, hateful and misguided people rallied against love … but here in LA, well, we got struck with a Love Bomb. While out and about yesterday afternoon, I came upon a new piece of 3D street art that went up on Melrose Ave. in West Hollywood, CA. As you may know, street art takes many forms … from spray paint graffiti to vinyl stickers to stencil paintings and more. On occasion, a 3D sculpture will show up on a street somewhere. Yesterday, a new piece by a street artist named Plastic Jesus showed up on Melrose … click below to take a look. More »

Meet The ‘Boy Wonder’

The TV Guide

Yesterday I became the proud owner of a new art piece that I have to share with all y’all. Some of you may know that I’m a pretty big fan of pop culture-inspired artwork so my latest acquisition should come as no surprise. In the past I’ve procured artwork that has been inspired by Masters of the Universe, Polaroid photography, etc. For the past year or so, I’ve become a fan of an LA street artist known as Thank You X. He has just released a new art piece titled Boy Wonder and yesterday I brought home one of his pieces. More »

I Don’t Mind Mondays

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a marginally bizzy day for me. I had a bit of running around to do in the afternoon and then last night, David and I met up with Tam and Rob for a long overdue dinner/hang session. Because David and I have to fly back East this weekend for another wedding (#6 of 8, if you’re keeping count) I had to run a few errands before we fly off again. I managed to get everything done, meet up with David as his office and then make our way to Silverlake to meet up with Tam and Rob. More »

You Know You Want This Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker

That-Ish-Cray of the Day

Don’t front. You know you’ve been trying to figure out a way to be the [ballinest] hostess with the mostest. And now at breakfast, you can be! Even though it’s just for show, this Louis Vuitton waffle maker is kind of that ish! And if not, it’s at least that-ish-cray of the day. Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Lewicki has come up with yet another interesting creation. I checked out his site and he’s got some really fun designs (see the Oreo manhole cover inside), but this LV waffle maker makes me 1.) really hungry, and 2.) really curious as to why I haven’t seen these in any of Kanye‘s recent videos. He better get on it before I feature it in my next video. Which I totally will; awkward for Kanye. Check out a couple other Andrew Lewicki originals inside.

Banksy And Other Street Artists Take On The London 2012 Olympics

This is definitely an exciting time for London; the 2012 Olympics are underway and many of us just witnessed the amazing spectacle that was their opening ceremony (we’ll try to forgive NBC for cutting out Emeli Sandé‘s tribute performance). But well-know street artists like Banksy and Mau Mau have a different take on the London Olympics. A few days before the opening ceremony police started cracking down heavily on street artists, even making several arrests. They vowed to remove any graffiti they found, but that didn’t stop Banksy and a few other from having their see. Peep the gallery for two new works from Banksy and other street artists whose graffiti is mixing (and mashing up against) contemporary London politics and culture. I also couldn’t resist adding a few more Banksy works that were, technically, unrelated. Checkie out!

This Austrian Photographer’s Underwater Exhibit Is Breathtaking

"Life Below The Surface"

Oh my gosh. Haven’t you always wanted to go scuba diving and enjoy brilliant photography at the same time? Of course you have; because you’re all artsy and weird and wonderful just like me. And you think an underwater photography exhibit is the most brilliant idea since… well, probably ever. Andreas Franke is an Austrian photographer. He lives in Vienna with his family, and he  recently created his own parallel universe on Vandenberg, where a shipwrecked boat was sunken to create an artificial Reef off Key West. In his exhibit (titled Life Below The Surface), art collides with nature, and ballerinas dance on the ocean floor. It’s fancy, and fantasy, and it’s all in the gallery. Because we have photo galleries now. Because we’re Pink Is The Newer Blog.

Planet Hiltron’s Celebrity Make-Unders Are Still The Funniest Thing Ever

Celebs, Like You've Never Seen Them

A while back these random images of celebrities gone “normal” started floating around the internet and they were so fun! And a little bit offensive, if you think about what their creator (Danny Evans) might have been saying about “normal” in America. But that’s a more complicated discussion and Planet Hiltron might be the simplest, funniest idea since Celebrigum… except there’s nothing like Celebrigum! So let’s not compare the two. Just check out these hilarious pictures! Sure, you’ve seen some of them already, but does Super-Sized Kimye ever really get old? I didn’t think so :)
