I’M EXCITED AS HECK TO ANNOUNCE that UK photographer Robert Boud will be directing the video for Call Me Greenhorn‘s Armageddon Dub based on his Aftermath Apocalypse Photography project. He’s perfect for it as his imagery fits the feel of the song so good it’s eerie.

Drawing inspiration from surrealism and horror, his portfolio shows work that is dark and powerful without ever resorting to cheap shock value. It’s thought provoking and visually stunning – disturbing pieces of art, but art nonetheless.
I am thrilled beyond belief to have him do this for me and can’t wait to see the finished results. Make sure you check out his portfolio at robboudphotography.wordpress.com. I’ll keep you updated on the video as it progresses.
Yeah. I’m working on a new song for Call Me Greenhorn. It’s called Yeah, Well Fuck You Too. I’ll send you an MP3.

This is just amazing: The most important American street photographer of the 20th century was a 1950′s nanny who kept to herself and never had a single photograph sold or published during her life time. Meet Vivian Maier - born in the US, raised in France (with some connection to Jeanne J. Bertrand) who moved to New York in the early 1950s and spent all her free time from the sweat shop she worked at to document the street life of her home town as well as Chicago. Following a career change to nanny she held that occupation for over 40 years, while still continuing her hobby.
Decades later, and by sheer coincidence, Chicago real estate agent John Maloof bought a huge box of undeveloped film at an auction, for the asking price of $380. Slowly developing her work he discovered the massive talent of the then-unnamed photographer and became obsessed with trying to find the creator of the 100,000+ negatives. In 2007 he found her name. In 2009 he found out she had died the previous year at the age of 83. Deciding to tell her story to the world he started working on the documentary Finding Vivian Maier – soon to premiere this year. In the mean time her work is rocking the exhibitions in cities like London, New York and Los Angeles.
In a day and age where most of us can
spam the shit promote everything from our selves to our local garage band having their debut show, a friend’s art exhibition or just what we’re having for lunch via social media etc., I found it both fascinating and heartbreaking her work was completely unknown. Watching it now at the official site I am impressed by the quality of her photography and find a weird sort of comfort that even though she’s passed on she finally gets some recognition. Read up on her story here and spread the word!

Yes! Might have some kick-ass news coming soon – if nothing else a future post regarding the phenomena “synchronicity” – but up until then make sure you check out UK photographer Robert Boud‘s video project Aftermath Apocalypse Photography on YouTube. It’s pretty stark imagery but still oddly beautiful.

Okay, I need an iPhone now goddammit! Get the Necronomicon Ex Mortis iPhone Case via Zazzle.com that offers a wide variety on this iconic pop-culture artifact.
UPDATE: Sorry, but I was way off on this one. The specific design seen on the photo was created by one Phil ‘Fel’ Young! No official website as far as I know, but
you’ll find the guy on Facebook. Maybe he accepts orders? Zazzle still got some pretty nifty designs available, but if you’re looking for that one you’re better off trying Facebook. My bad.
UPDATE 2: Thanks to Joe Banks who hepped me to the official Facebook page where you can order your copy of this awesome iPhone case. The link is www.facebook.com/EvilDeadIphoneCase so go check it out! Cheers, Joe!
Did you featherpussy out who error you horse? Prepare to wet yourself with laughter as BuzzFeed‘s collection The 30 Most Hilarious Autocorrect Struggles Ever easily is one of the funniest post I’ve read in ages. I am not joking. Just collecting the most epic fails found when it comes to that annoying lil’ gadget. And some of these had me laughing so hard my cheeks were wet with tears.
Anyway, less talk and more click, Dick. I posted two faves here – and made sure I didn’t use the killer ones – so check ‘em all out here! Oh, and keep in mind the language is pretty NSFW, so check it out at home where no one has a problem if you’re enjoying yourself. Skittletits bitchgobblet!

Well, I’ve already written about this, but here’s the latest spam mail found in my inbox. And it’s actually a bit more convincing than the previous “I’ve transaction for you” that I received the last time, so I’m guessing English lessons or at least dictionaries are somewhat increasing in sales in whatever country these are generated (China?). Too bad about the “Dear Sir/Madam” part though, ’cause even though I’m a huge fan of Ed Wood‘s Glen or Glenda? I am very secure in my gender identity.
Anyway, this along with the increase of that other form of spam that includes commenting or liking other people’s blogs in order to generate interest/traffic to their get-rich-quick schemes et. al. got me thinking of what good ol’ Bill Hicks had so say about the phenomenon, and even though I would never encourage a fellow human being to actually off themselves, I’d still like to extend a wish they’d just
fuck off and die find something else to do with their time.
While on the subject:
Happy Easter! You go on and celebrate any which way you want and don’t let the haters stop you!
