Musicians make the oddest backstage demands

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Thursday 18 July 2013

Harry Hargreaves‘ recent photography series revolves around the strange backstage requests made by some of the world’s biggest music names. Just so you know, Marilyn Manson really likes gummy bears, while Prince likes coffee and tea with honey, lemon, sugar, cream, fresh ginger root… plus a physician at hand for vitamin B12 jabs. Then there’s […]

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Wednesday 19 June 2013

Toronto-based graphic designer and photographer Marc Ghali cleverly mashed up faces of famous personalities from past and present in the most freakily seamless way with his Then & Now project. James Dean somewhat lives on in Brad Pitt, while Princess Diana somewhat lives on in Kate Middleton — it’s like whoever lived in the past […]

Portraits of celebrities by Carmine Bellucci

Carmine Bellucci Reader Find

By Carmine Bellucci in New Illustration on Tuesday 21 May 2013

To do a portrait of a person is to dig deep into his or her soul, to understand what they do and why they do it, and then make it visible. When this person is a celebrity, the job is harder because they’ve already gone through many interpretations. Still, you have to find something new. […]

Disney fashion: celebrities and their cartoon doppelgangers

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Fashion on Tuesday 14 May 2013

I guess the beauty of being a celebrity is that you can wear whatever you want, even if it makes you look like the evil witch from Disney’s Snow White cartoon. The official look for the Met Gala this year was supposed to be punk. But I guess something got lost in comunication because it’s clear these celebrities resemble classic Disney characters.

Facemath: Many celebs maketh one

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Wednesday 23 January 2013

Barring the rather excellent Numb3rs drama series and, er, New Orleans band Mutemath, the Facemath Tumblr is probably the best pop culture use of mathematics we have seen so far. Facemath adds up a bunch of celebs (random objects like facial hair or bunny ears also make an appearance) to emerge with one celeb, the sum of the total. Every math sum here is solved in a way that’s so oddly comprehensible, it’s geeky without alienating the non-geeks.

Woodcuts inspired by classic movies by Loren Kantor

Loren Kantor Reader Find

By Loren Kantor in New Art on Monday 7 January 2013

I fell in love with woodcuts in the 80s, when I attended a German Expressionist show at LA County Museum. My wife gave me a woodcutting set for my birthday and I dove in blindly. I began carving images inspired by classic movies. Each carving takes 40-50 hours. The process forces me to slow down. I guess woodcutting has become my personal yoga.

Celebrities That Look Like Matresses

Margarita Peker Reader Find

By Margarita Peker in Cool Websites on Friday 23 March 2012

I’ve heard of pet owners looking like their dogs, or of wives looking like their husbands’ mothers. But this is the first time I’ve ever been enlightened enough to know that celebrities can also look like mattresses. All of a sudden, I find myself pitying the likes of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears, who have been lambasted for being so quick to bed. Clearly, it wasn’t their fault. The uncanny resemblance to a mattress is just too much for a tired man.
