The greatest/funniest thing I’ve seen all week. Also wrote about a different hilarious video for The Absolute. I figured that one had a broader appeal (and was less weird). But then again, I have a weird sense of humor.

Today I was cleaning out my Documents folder when I found my old dream journal from 2006-2008. Here’s my favorite entry:

Sept. 14, 2006:

Had a dream that they made a third Willy Wonka remake, except this time Trent Reznor played Wonka.  He was also a child molestor.  The dream took place in some Waterworld/playground and the dream ended with a showdown between Tocarra and Furonda from America’s Next Top Model.

Edit:
And it gets better:

May 26, 2007:

Now this one is very hazy, but I remember hanging out at 50 cent’s party and waiting around in a special area so I could get some free money and a free car.  Evan Rachel Wood was there (for whatever reason) defending the right for her to whore it up (but she spoke about herself in 3rd person). 

I got to start keeping a dream journal again.

Jay-Z and Marina Abramović rekindle art’s relationship with pop

This latest subgenre in the long history of art/pop hybridisation is different and new. It’s not just another example of the mutual seduction of pop and art that goes back to Peter Blake and Richard Hamilton designing Beatles album covers. For one thing, these artists are participating directly in music – making it or dancing in public to it. For another, and this makes them different from the legions of young artists who are in arty bands, they are mature people, stepping into mainstream pop. Abramović is in her late 60s, Ai Weiwei well into his 50s. Yoko Ono, one half of art and pop’s ultimate marriage, is 80.
Is their embrace of mainstream pop music a symptom of the same disintegration of age boundaries the Rolling Stones enacted at Glastonbury? Surely, this is a truly definitive time in the story of modern culture. (via The Guardian)

I DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS.

A close friend of mine is getting married (again), and so I’ve been seizing my maid-ish duties by helping her find a dress. She was looking for cheap dresses, so after a couple of Google searches we landed on Grandgown.com, a site I’ve never heard of but is apparently the hub of cheap, tacky dresses made in every color (green! yellow! purple!). 

One of my favorites was this snappy number…

image

…you know, for when you want to look your frumpiest (it’s also available in pink!).

There’s also this one…

image

…you know, for when you want to look like a 6-year-old’s version of what going to prom is like.

Friend: “This is a dress for psychopaths.”

Me: “Or mentally damaged individuals who never leave their house.”

Friend: “Yeah, and they’re marrying their cousin.”

 image

I have nothing negative to say about this dress, but I’m weirded out by this picture because the model looks 12. “I’m a model!” 

image

Speaking of models, my friend kept making fun of this model’s piss yellow hair, but I couldn’t stop staring at her teeth.

image

She’s missing a tooth! Don’t tell me casting missed that.

image

Friend: Hey, guys! I glued feathers to my bra!

I actually don’t have a problem with this dress.  Vegas strippers need love too.

Yep, it’s Wednesday.
By the way, I finally found a purpose for my other Tumblr, which will basically be used for images/unoriginal crap/reblogs, etc. Long-ish articles, music and other original stuff will remain here. My ongoing transfer from Startlogic to Hostgator is still in process. Parts of the site (mostly images, mp3s) are down because Wordpress MU decided to stop working.

The Incredibly Shrinking Woman:  This photo series, called “Changing Room," shows a woman documenting her 160 pound weight loss, one pound at a time. The pictures were taken throughout 2010 and 2011 at various dressing rooms. "Even though these images were taken years ago, when I look back at them, I become extremely emotional," she tells NPR. “I can still remember the experience presented in each image. I recall the thrills of trying on smaller sizes and the satisfaction of feeling more attractive, even sexy. More so, I remember the devastation of not recognizing the person reflected back to me in the mirror.” [NPR, “The Picture Show”]
