Not Herself at all...

So if I had to say the one person I hate in the entire world would be Perez Hilton. I just hate him so much, hes just a nasty person. Inside and out!

Anyways I saw this on his site earlier (yes I read his site, he may be a horrible person but his site has all the latest news) how he compared Christina Augilera's new video to Lady Gaga. Its so ridiculous.

His fascination with Lady Gaga is really just going to turn people against her. Last week he called Grace Jones "washed up", and if anything Christina's new video is more Madonna's Human Nature rather than Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga did not invent red knickers, or holding your hand to your face.

As for Christina's video, it really not appealing. I much preferred her 50's CandyMan phase, rather than Dirrty Xtina. That worked 10 years ago, but now that shes married and a mother its really not a good look. And as for the Lady Gaga comparison, the only thing in common I could see was the product placement.

What do you think?

I love Soap & Glory, they have the best packaging and product design in beauty care. And it smells good too, what more could you want...

So what is Good Design to you?

So last week I took part in a documentary on "Good Design", unfortunatly the sound wasn't great so yesterday we had a fun day reshooting.

My mate David is shooting a documentary about Good Design, and the different opinions that designers with different levels of design education have about what makes a piece of design good.

The head of my college, AIT design deputy Mr. Eddie Ryan was interviewed, as well as recent graduate Katy Halpin and a few other designers. We were all asked to contributed to collaboration poster also. Eddie started it off, then I added to it, as did Katy and the other designers will too. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Once the finished piece comes together I'll post it here, along with the documentary too, well if I can get my hands on it that is.


Spot The Difference?

I don't know why American GQ would choose that picture of Jake for their cover, he looks so dopey/stoned/A Little Special. On the other hand GQ Russia has him looking his usual dapper self...

we are all BORN FREE

M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.

So I watched the video this morning and all I can say is I really was not expecting that at 11 am! At 9 minutes long M.I.A's Born Free rivals Gaga's Telephone, but when it comes to shock and awe Gaga cant touch Maya's controversol video. Directed by French director Romain Garvas,it really is something to see. I wont give too much away but it all goes a little insane around the 4 minute mark. Segregation is no fun kids!


Ah Wim Bah Wah

So if you don't know Dave Salmoni has a show on Discovery, he goes and plays with the lions and tiger and bears. In his spare time he likes to be photographed by Tony Duran for Flaunt Magazine.

Elana Sofia Tinis

Recently graduated Romanian Illustrator Elena Sofia Tinis’s bold illustrative style is one to remember. Elongated everything is one of her recognizable trademarks, and something I am a sucker for in fashion illustration. The young illustrator is making her way to NY in a matter of weeks to pursue her career as an illustrator and her goal for 2010 is to be published in a US magazine. Seems quite realistic from where I stand.

Sugar Coated Kerrr-ching!

So I don't know why but I have it in my head that me and my mate Ciara can make a bunch of money selling cupcakes and cookies. Seriously they're cheap to make, high profit margin! I'll be in the sugar coated monaaay!!!



HP - invent from Tom and Matt on Vimeo.

I don't know about you but I hate printers. In college they never work, or they're jammed, or out of ink, or something else! But these HP don't look too bad, well, until you run out of ink then have to pay a fortune for another cartridge. Ah well, at least the ad is interesting...



I never thought about it before but advertising could be a really interesting career path... Although probably really stressful too. Anyways I love this video for BooneOakley, I bet they'd be fun to work for.
