eye candy

as a sucker for tattoos,
I urgently needed to put keith bryce into this mix.
The designer from Utah is one of the contestants
in season 5 of Project Runway.


micallef likes to play with his crayons
and pictures make him happy.
He describes his work like this:
"My work is like watching a Disney movie
which slowly turns into violent pornography".
Love it!

I am in love.
This French-born artist makes the most
wonderful, fairytale-like images.
Someone please make these into wallpaper -
I want to live -or die - in this world!

I know this is old, but it's beautiful nonetheless,
so here goes:

Movie of the weak...

Ah, who can forget LACE, the 1984 mini series
based on Shirley Conran's book.
Own this! "Through sick and sin"!

Squeezebox! The Movie

Once upon a time (like the mid-'90s), a party promoter
named Michael Schmidt had a novel idea:
drag queens dumping the lipsynching routine
to sing rock and roll live onstage.
No one knew what to expect when they first
opened the doors to Don Hill's
on the fateful night that
SqueezeBox! was born in downtown Manhattan.

The drag queens rocked New York nightlife
in a way no one had ever seen before.
But what began as a place for queer misfits
who'd rather hear a guitar riff
than a disco beat turned into a pansexual free-for-all.
Straight or gay. Preppy or punk.
Man or woman (or somewhere in between).
All were welcome at SqueezeBox!
as long as they were there to have fun.

Here are a few clips from the recent documentary:

Jayne County

Sarah Jessica Porkher

Yeah, I's tacky (no, it's funny!),
but I had to blog this.
Blame - or thank - Perez...

nina hemmingsson

Flaunt magazine!

If you haven't discovered Flaunt magazine yet -
boy, you're in for a treat!
This fantastic mag has made it a point to consistently
break new ground, earning itself a reputation as
an engine of the avant-garde
and an outlet for outsider culture.
Sadly it's not available in Norway, but it's possible to subscribe.

Here are a few past issue covers:


the german design group Ding3000's got some fun takes on furniture and product design.
