Suck on this! :)) A gallery of princesses from fairy tales living in the real world. Photos taken by photographer Dina Goldstein.
Why hide it, if you’re Hunter S. Thompson, you write a $ 2 million check and you write “Cocaine” in the memo field.
… as in a post-it art war which has been going on in France between the Ubisoft HQ and a bank across the street since July. And its getting artistic and weird.
Below is some of the action that is going on in France, and some simpler pieces that are popping up at this Tumblr, Post’It War.
A series of comparisons between the classic pinup girls and photos that have served as models for achieving them.
In March 2011, artist Candy Chang has launched a public art project inviting passers by to chalk their own ending to the sentence: “Before I die I want to …” on a disused building in New Orleans that has been transformed into a giant chalkboard.
“Before I Die” started life as part of an exhibition called Freeriding, by Subtext Projects in a gallery before taking to the streets. Chang selected a large, boarded-up corner building in New Orleans to transform into an enormous blackboard.
She recruited a gang of friends to help her to daub the building in chalkboard paint and then stencil the first part of the phrase over and over again onto each wall. Chalk holders attached to the wall meant that passers by could immediately pick up a piece of chalk to add their own aspirations. Responses ranged from the humorous to the profound, including “be a YouTube sensation”, “go 200 mph” and “be completely myself.”Chang was “blown away” by the outpouring of responses. The entire wall was filled out within 24 hours. Some of her favorite responses include “Before I die, I want to eat a salad with an alien” and “before I die I want to marry this person,” accompanied by an arrow pointing to the last response.
Here is the just released letter from Steve Jobs:
PRESS RELEASE: Letter from Steve Jobs
August 24, 2011–To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
Now this the end of an era.
