The New Tourist Photo

Hello! 

I know… it’s been a while since I last posted. I had five days off for Easter so I decided to take advantage of my time and spend it outdoors instead of in front of a computer screen. I never got the chance to post yesterday either becasue I was swamped at work and I also had an essay to finish for my American Literature class.

That being said, I came across a funny blog today which is entirely devoted to one thing… face down photos…

Lynn and Michael Chealander and Amy Mihyang started this project in 2006 and since then facedown photos have been taken  in over 2 dozen countries and at least 10 American states. On their blog http://facedowns.wordpress.com/ they explain that there is no real purpose but continue to say that:

“Instead there is a focus on the locations and the relationship we all have with the quintessential ‘tourist photo.’ Don’t think about it too much though. We’ll be delighted if you’re simply amused.”

Here are some photos of their work from different places around the world.

Alaskan Way Viaduct. Seattle, USA.

Balcon de Europa. Nerja, Spain.

City Gate. Colonia Del Sacramento, Uruguay.

Montreal, Canada.

They have taken tons of these photos around the world, all of which are both scenic and amusing to look at. I think this project is great because it is unique and fun and definitely a step away from your typical smile and pose pictures. Plus, I’m sure they shock tons of tourists on a daily basis which is a bonus.

Flight of the Conchords

I give up. I didn’t find anything to write about and my work day is over in about a minute.

However, I will talk about the Flight of the Conchords. It had been a while, but I watched my favorite episode last night at a friend’s place and it was just as amazing as I remembered. The episode was about the band signing a fake record deal and fooling their band manager… and somehow they ended up making a Lord of the Rings music video.

Flight of the Conchords started out as a musical-comedy duo from New Zealand, composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. They went on to star in a television series for HBO by the same name which premiered in the US and Canada in 2007.

The series revolves around the pair as they try to achieve success as a band in New York City and try to develop an American fan base. The other cast members are equally as funny and really add to the show, especially their deluded band manager Murray, and their obsessed stalker/fan Mel.

Here is their official Flight of the Conchords band website if you want to learn more about them http://flightoftheconchords.co.nz/ .

Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

This is pretty funny I must say http://lesbianswholooklikejustinbieber.tumblr.com/

Okay so it’s not really the site, because it’s not that great yet, that makes me laugh so much as the idea of it… but I’m confident that as time goes by more and more lesbian-bieber (biebian?) look alikes will emerge and the site will become more substantial.

This is my favorite by far:

Histerical Eclipse Trailer Reaction

Okay, first of all I have to admit that the Twilight saga is a guilty pleasure of mine. However, I take no offense to criticism of the book or movies or the acting because I know that, as a whole, Twilight is a TAD ridiculous.

I have read the books and watched the two movies, so naturally, I have been looking out for the new Eclipse trailer that was released today. During my search I also came across this little gem that I think anyone, fan or not, can enjoy.

Below is a reaction video of a devoted fan watching the new Eclipse trailer for the first time. For the full effect, I recommend clicking on this link  http://www.eclipsethemovie.com/ to watch the actual trailer at the same time, that way you can see what this lovely lady is reacting to. I promise this will not disappoint.

Priorities

Just for LOLZ.




SmileyyMoon


Take a look at what I think is worth looking at on the web - a collection of art, music, movies, web design, and whatever else catches my eye. Be pepared for the occasional ramble about my life, as well.
