Stella McCartney, a mother of 3 and pregnant with her fourth, today launches her clothing range for children. She has been collaborating with Gap on a clothes for children for the last couple of years. So this seems an inevitable follow-on. When she announced this project she said “As a brand with so many working parents in the team, i wanted to create a fun, desirable, wearable kids collection that was affordable. I feel all the timeless children’s wear is reserved for the expensive brands and that did not sit well with me. Kids and parents, aunts, uncles, friends should all be able to have access to Stella McCartney Kids clothes.”
The clothes look adorable. And if you can afford them, you can buy them from her website.
And to millions of others. He has contacted his 2008 supporters begging them to vote. Polls are predicting a bad election for the Democrats. So if you’re in the USA and can vote do so. Now.
Tomorrow, you can help determine not just the outcome of this election, but our country’s future.
You made the difference in 2008. Now, once again, you can defy the conventional wisdom that says you can’t overcome the cynicism of our politics; you can’t overcome the special interests and the big money; you can’t tackle our biggest challenges. Read More…
Apparently, according to the Vanity Fair, Nicole Richie is a kinda literary genius – she’s just published her second novel, Priceless. Who would have guessed?
I like this extract from an interview with the ‘skinny white girl’ comparing her to Franzen by Eric Spitznagel.
Let’s say someone’s at a bookstore, and they’ve got Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom in one hand and Priceless in another. Which one do they buy?
Well, if you want to be educated, you get Priceless. Read More…
How is this for gossip? Pendra Dissell who sent me this press release says Die Antwoord won’t have anything to do with her and Sean Meterlkamp after being told that “I can’t stand you” and “Just F@#k off.”
Eish! What does Die Antwoord say to this release?
Here it is:
Following Die Antwoord posting the below mentioned libelous statement on their Face Book page, where they have over 150 000 fans, Harry & Co, on behalf of Pendra Dissell and Sean Metelerkamp, would like to issue the following statement.
Check it: SEAN METERLEKAMP who claimed to ‘direct’ ZEF SIDE is a fuckin parasite and a liar. Ninja, Yo-landi and DJ HI-TEK started DIE ANTWOORD 5 years ago on our own. Sean took some photos of us and interviewed us under our direction then stabbed us in the back and keeps using our music and imagery without our permission. That art award is a fuckin wank. Sean fuck you and your old alcoholic slut boss in the face.
A new record for the sale of South African art has been set. And again it’s for an Irma Stern. The sale of the “Bahora Girl” in London at a Bonham’s auction last night fetched 2.4million pounds – that’s 26.7 million rands. Two weeks ago Stern’s Gladioli painting broke a record after it sold for R13 368 000 at a Strauss & Co auction.
The painting comes from Stern’s time in Zanzibar, “where she was powerfully affected by the beauty of the local Indian women,” says the Bonham’s press release. Giles Peppiatt, from the auction house, said: “Once again Bonhams has demonstrated the growing interest in South African art and the wisdom of selling in London to an international audience.”
Still wondering about that Last Supper painting by Dean Simon.
Julia Beffon, our games reviewer, tv sports columnist, and chief sub sent me these images. She says that these are the main reason (thanks to Don Bailey) she got so interested in computers so early. “They are fractal images — visual representations of infinite mathematical equations — that it takes a computer to plot.”
“Zef Side” (directed by photographer-commercial director Sean Metelerkamp) that fabulous Die Antwoord music video has been chosen as one of the winners of the global video art competition “YouTube Play”. This, just a few days after another one its videos, “Evil Boy”, was removed from the YouTube’s website. “Evil Boy” features too much flesh and talk about flesh: talking breasts, an explicit rap verse about male circumcision and an overabundance of penile imagery.
The judges for the YouTube Play competition were artist Laurie Anderson, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, US musicians Animal Collective and Japanese visual artist Takashi Murakami.
I’ve just read on Gawker that photographer Joao Silva was badly injured after stepping on a landmine in Afghanistan today. Eish.
Nicolas Kristoff from The New York Times in a blogpost quotes an article by Dexter Filkins about the mine:
“A group of minesweepers and bomb-sniffing dogs had already moved over the area several steps ahead of Mr. Silva, but many bombs are made with a minimum amount of metal and are very difficult to detect.”
Update: Joao has been moved to Germany for treatment where his wife will be joining him soon. Thoughts are with Joao and his family.
