Lily Allen 'Fuck You'

This is going to be my new anthem
Bush Jr can be replaced by anyone :)



lyrics:
Look inside, look inside your tiny mind
and look a bit harder
cause we're so uninspired
so sick and tired
of all the hatred you harbor
so you say it's not okay to be gay
well I think you're just evil
you're just some racist who can't tie my laces
you're point of view is not legal
Fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don't stay in touch
fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
so please don't stay in touch
do you get, do you get a little kick out of being small-minded?
you want to be like your father
it's approval you're after
well that's not how you'll find it
do you, do you really enjoy living a life that's so hateful
cause there's a hole where your soul should be
you're losing control of it
and it's really distasteful
Fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don't stay in touch
fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
so please don't stay in touch
Look inside, look inside your tiny mind
and look a bit harder
cause we're so uninspired
so sick and tired
of all the hatred you harbor
Fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don't stay in touch
fuck you, fuck you very very much
cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
so please don't stay in touch

The Dualism Publication

Remember The Dualism? The online art show? Terrific photography. You can also find them on Facebook.

They have a new initiative now that sounds very promising. They're going to publish a magazine / book (print) without ads. See message below or read it here.

So if you want to promote yourself in the industry's they mention ... react fast. It's better than placing an ad in a magazine, and less expensive.




The Dualism Photographic Art Publication
Promotion Guidelines


As The Dualism fans are enormously increasing worldwide (click to visit facebook fan page) and the success of the recently launched online exhibition www.TheDualismExhibition.com, it has been decided that the dualism will start its own publication in form of art books series that would consist of The Dualism art work, collaboration with other artists and creative people in all fields, the involvement of art in different life aspects dealing with matters that we all relate to, all presented in artistic manner along side with discussions and debates of our fans.

The publication will be promoting artists by collaborating with them in doing artwork and interviews of what they do and/or of them. All kind of artist and people in the creative field: writers, poets, singers, musicians, bands, actors, models, fashion designers, hair and make-up artist, puppeteers, painters, sculptors..etc, etc

People outside the creative field would be able to apply to promote themselves and what they do AS LONG AS WE SHOW HOW CAN ART BE INVOLVED AND CONNECT WITH THAT FIELD.

The collaboration would be on 5-10 pages spread of an art shoot with an interview:

- The Photo shoot: showing what you do and/or of you, as you have seen on The Dualism work, it is very provocative, emotion evoking, pushes the limits, sometimes controversial, and nudity sometimes included.

- The Interview: Not only about what you do but also ( if you are not in the art field) its connectivity with art, your views on art in general, cultures, different issues that are going around us, sometimes it will include a reply to fans views on the subject, also it would contain their web links and contacts at the end.

The publication will circulate In the UK and on an international scale among art lovers, fashion scene and movie making industry. It is going to be in high quality book, ad free, and done on The Dualism photography expense, therefore, anyone who would like to promote themselves in the publication by doing such collaboration will be required to pay £250.

If you are interested in promoting yourself and/or your work in the publication, or if you have any further questions please email to : Dualistic@TheDualism.com

Ode To Jan Aaldert Kuijer

For my foreign readers: 'Sorry' ... but this is an ode to somebody I didn't knew but had the feeling I knew. Respect!!

"Als mijn vader ergens muziek hoorde; een draaiorgel of een orkestje, dan stond hij als eerste op de dansvloer. Of dit nu in een winkel was of op straat, het maakte niet uit. Dit overigens tot groot ongenoegen van mijn moeder die helemaal niet graag in de belangstelling staat, maar zich wel altijd lachend liet meeslepen. Waren we net een dagje op het strand geweest en speelde er een draaiorgel op straat een wals dan ja hoor, mijn ouders stonden ineens op straat te dansen. Als kind wilde je op zo'n moment het liefst door de grond zakken en zeggen 'Ik ken die mensen ├ęcht niet hoor!', maar zij hadden plezier en nu heb ik er groot respect voor. 'Mensch, durf te leven!' waar is dat ook alweer van? De afgelopen dagen zijn al met al behoorlijk intensief voor de familie nu Pa er niet meer is.:

Boyfriend Body Pillow

Iiieeuuuwww, this is gross. First I couldn't stop laughing about the pyjama's but than I read the description:

"Wrap yourself up in the Boyfriend Body Pillow. The Boyfriend Pillow is a soft and pleasurable body pillow that resembles the torso of a big strong man with a comforting arm that cuddles you. Feel his safe and warm embrace while comfortably resting on his chest. This fun and cozy snuggle pillow is great for people whose partner is away on military leave or work absence. Single's who wants to feel the touch of a man without actually having to have one love it too. This novelty pillow makes a great gift for a friend or relative with a good sense of humor that would love to have a little more cuddling at night. You will love how this boyfriend arm pillow is so soft and warm, and the way that he wraps around you and holds you all through the night with out saying a word. It is as if he knows exactly what you want."

Don Q's LadyData - The Female Perspective

DonQ Rum and interactive shop Undercurrent have launched this website. Guys ask questions, gals answer. I don't see the connection between rum and a Q & A website, gender seperated, but okay, perhaps it's a new hype.

Shall I transform this blog into 'Dear Sylvana'?
I can surely give it a try :). Send me a question, any question, and I will answer.

Perhaps a good idea, because females from above 35 don't exist if you look at this picure :)

Bag Lady is based on a week-long intervention in a shopping mall in Berlin, where the artist went shopping carrying a lot of cash in a transparent plastic bag.


The Trainee has been produced in a collaboration with Deloitte and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art. In order to realize the project, the artist was working for a month as a trainee "Johanna Takala" in the marketing departement of Deloitte where only few people knew the true nature of the project.
