Happy Sunday Joffrey Slap Day!

Happy Sunday!

To brighten up your day, I’ve decided to post something that sure made my day.

I can watch these clips over and over.

Game of Thrones bratty ‘king’ Joffrey Baratheon is a spoilt pr*ck and sadist!

This clip shows Tyrion Lannister serving up some tough love, dwarf style

This was the first part of a longer post, which I wrote and rewrote twice, but ended up being gobbled up by the wordpress monster.

I just don’t have the energy to write the same thing a third time ;(

That sucks… but also teaches you to save what you have conjured up more often.

Hey, maybe I should slap WordPress?

Only kidding!

Surrealist Design Sunday

Have a wonderful Sunday and be outrageous! 

Elsa Schiaparelli was a wonderful Surrealist over the top designer that I wrote about in my previous thesis paper for my Fashion Design degree.

These designs may seem timid for our standards (I’m looking at you Gaga!), but they were shocking and novel for their times.

Hope you enjoy!

Not so Doomed, Ned Starks returns to Game of Thrones, season 2

In my post yesterday I mourned the fate of Fine British Actors .

The characters they play seem to be falling off the perch at an  alarming!

A Hollywood conspiracy perhaps?

It turns out, however, that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Sean Bean was determined to return to Game of Thrones season 2 and resurrect his character, Ned Stark.

This bodes well for Richard Armitage!

Perhaps we shall see the return of Porter, North or Gizzy?

Anyway, back to Bean, you have to admire his perseverance!

Dead as a Dodo or The Doomed Fate of Fine British Actors

Those fine British Actors!

Once they break through, they rule in Hollywood.

They represent a level of acting that is unheard of that side of the pond (no offense).

Today I’d like to focus on two.

Richard Armitage and Sean Bean.

Both are fine actors, with tons of experience, talent and sexiness that just won’t quit.

BUT….

Why, Oh why do they continuously keep dying on-screen?

ps. That Dawn French is one lucky lady!

Maybe I should get into comedy?

Back to the morbid topic at hand…

Is it some conspiracy, a strange ploy to break fangirls hearts all around the world?

That is harsh!

I hope Bean doesn’t take it personally.

He definitely didn’t fall of the perch in Lady Chatterley’s Lover wink wink 😉

Here is Sean Bean’s Death Reel (have your tissues at the ready…)

  

I am fearful that Richard Armitage will go down the Sean Bean route.

Here is my evidence, just to name a few characters that kicked the bucket:

Maybe we should start a campaign.

I think we should demand that, instead of being killed on screen, RA characters should be very much alive until the very last moment of each project.

What is more, I think he should play a role where he actually creates new life…

OK, maybe I’ve gone too far.

I just had a Paul in socks flashback and, let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty 😉

Ingo Maurer brightens up my life

Today a glimpse at the beautiful work of Ingo Maurer. These are simply stunning.

The German born artist is one of the most prolific and respected artist/designers working today.

Fascinated by what he calls the magical and mystical properties of light, Maurer constructs luminous atmospheres that play with traditional concepts of color, brightness and shadow. .

Porca Miseria– a light feature of  smashed porcelain

Here’s another version

This is Lucellino, which I have in my study/computer room

I have this feature in my bathroom, because I like it a bit crazy 😉

Here are some other amazing designs

 Let it be said! If I could afford it, I’d have every single room packed with Maurer!

This post reminded me of studying fashion design and getting assignments to create wearable clothes from the oddest materials. I remeber a corset made out of those plastic bags that you fill with water and freeze to make icecubes, lego blocks for shoes and such.
These, I hope you will agree, are simply stunning!

Dame di Cartone, Cardboard Ladies – 2008

Christian Tagliavini swiss-Italian, born in 1971, educated in Italy and Switzerland, where he lives and works as an graphic designer and a photographer. This provides him the perfect frame and background to invent, create and totally produce images that blend fine arts and craftsmanship.

No, not simply images, as Christian Tagliavini loves designing stories with open endings (requiring observer’s complicity) on unexplored themes or unusual concepts, featuring uncommon people with their lives and their thoughts made visible. This rich and exciting collision of circumstances results in photos as a final product.

Game of Thrones Funnies

It’s Tuesday meaning I’ve just watched the new Game of Thrones episode.

I have a dumb smile attached to my face and I’m basking in the GoT glory.

It’s time for some funny, bizarre or just plain weird, all from Game of Thrones Funnies:

Mirri Maz Duur’s True Identity

 

Funny Finger Art

 

I’m just going to categorise the following images as bizarre.

It’s a wonder what you can up with using your fingers and a magic marker 😉

It does however make me realise that my fingers are sad under achievers, with no real artistic value!

Armitage Poll Results

It’s time to round up the polls that have popped up in the past couple of weeks in separate posts 1 and.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the different polls, your participation is what makes it FUN!!!

Let’s start off with the SNOG:

It turns out that Lucas North is the most snogable RA character, with 38.24%

In second place we have John Thornton, with a little over 20%.

I think that perhaps a little railway station platform lip and tongue extravaganza may have had something to do with the results.

The character we would like to MARRY is Harry Kennedy, with a whooping 50%.

 It’s nice to see he had gained your favour despite being an accountant. I bet it has something to do with those  jumpers.

Harry kennedy jumper

John Thornton came second, with a little over 26%.

This means a few of you wouldn’t mind getting physical with Miltons finest, but aren’t interested in making an honest man out of him.

Paul Andrews and Thorin Oakenshield  are the ones you’d DISS, each earning 36,36%!

 I guess we just don’t like them super hairy and wearing socks in bed.

Another poll asked you which WET & WILD Armitage character brightens up your day or rocks your boat.

Your top answer- Lucas North, with 86%.

I was a bit unfair as I included the wet jeans pic, smashing the competition to pieces!

I also asked who, in you opinion is the MOST ABUSED Armitage character.

The winner- John Porter!

He received 45.45% of your votes, leaving the rest behind.

I also asked you who was THE FIRST RA character that caught you in the Armitage web.

Most of you have similar experiences as me, with dashing John Thornton sweeping you off your feet and changing your life for ever (over 72%)!

Thank You to all who participated!

Obsessing about Armitage with a group of like-minded  nuts makes it so much fun 😉
