REBECCA LOUISE (flower martial) LAW


I WAS DOING MY USUAL INTERNET STALK SESSION AND I CAME ACROSS/FELL IN LOVE WITH REBECCA LOUISE LAW'S FLORAL INSTALLATION MASTERPIECES.  SHE SPEAKS TO THE FRILLY TUTU AND STILETTOS WEARING BITCH WITHIN ME, THIS IS TRULY HER ELEMENT.  I MEAN THERE IS REALLY NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN A FLOWER IN ANY STATE, BUT WHEN YOUR VISUAL AND OLFACTORY SENSES ARE OVERLOADED BY ONE OF HER STELLAR FLORAL EXPERIENCES, I'M SURE YOU JUST AUTOMATICALLY FEEL ROYAL AS SHIT.

SOAK IN SOME IMAGES OF HER WORK AND PLEASE CHECK OUT THE VIDEO OF WHAT IT TAKES TO BUILD SUCH GRAND INSTALLATIONS, BE INSPIRED PEOPLE.

NOW THIS IS AN ALRIGHT 19TH CENTURY WHITE DUDE.



I REMEMBER BEING DRAWN TO HIS WORK IN SCHOOL AND SAW SOME OF HIS SCULPTURES IN PARIS AT THE MUSEE D'ORSAY AND AM SO EXCITED TO SPLASH HIS WORK ALL OVER THE BLOG! CHARLES-HENRY-JOSEPH CORDIER 
(pictured above) WAS A ETHNOGRAPHIC SCULPTOR AND HIS WORK, WHILE WILDLY UNDER THE RADAR STATESIDE, IS AND WAS CELEBRATED AS A BEAUTIFUL RENDITION OF "THE OTHER" LENDING A GLIMPSE OF THE BEAUTY IN PEOPLE THAT EXISTED OUTSIDE OF THE EUROPEAN REALM. 

THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIAL USED TO  BUILD HIS WORK, LENT TO HIS REVERANCE FOR CULTURES NOT HIS OWN. IN HIS UNPUBLISHED MEMOIRS, CORDIER REMARKED,  "MY ART INCORPORATED THE REALITY OF A WHOLE NEW SUBJECT, THE REVOLT AGAINST SLAVERY AND THE BIRTH ON ANTHROPOLOGY." CHECK OUT SOME IMAGES OF HIS WORK, AND MAYBE BUY YOU ONE.

THE THEATER AT ACE HOTEL


 

FINALLY GETTING TIME TO INVEST IN THE FREE LA SCENE (broke social stuntin')

AND THE BOO FINDS A GREAT EVENT FOR US TO ATTEND: MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES PREMIERE PARTY! IT HAD EVERYTHING I WANTED IN A FREE EVENT; COMPLIMENTARY FOOD, GOOD MUSIC AND FREE T-SHIRTS. UNFORTUNATELY ALL THE BLACK TEES WERE GONE BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE BUT I STILL GOT A XL MENS' BLACK TANK (meh).  


WE WATCHED THE FIRST 4 (15 minute) EPISODES OF THE SHOW AND THEN GOT TO HAVE A PANEL DISCUSSION WITH THE CAST INCLUDING MR. TYSON HIMSELF!  I WAS ALSO PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TO SEE JIM RASH PLAYING THE CHARACTER OF THE GAY GHOST, BUT ALL MY FELLOW TV NERDS OUT THERE KNOW (and love) HIM AS THE DEAN FROM COMMUNITY.  THAT WAS COOL AND AL, BUT NORM MCDONALD'S ABSENCE WAS FELT AS HIS CHARACTER, PIGEON, LITERALLY CARRIES THE WHOLE SHOW.  

OVERALL A FUNNY ADULTWIM-ESQUE SHOW, BUT NOT ON THE LEVEL OF CLASSICS LIKE ROBOT CHICKEN, SEALAB 2021, THE BRAK SHOW OR HARVEY BIRDMAN ATTORNEY AT LAW

PEEP MY PHOTOS FROM THE EVENT AND THE TRAILER FOR THE SHOW BELOW.
