Sarah Silverman's Really NSFW Anti Voter ID PSA

Haven't published anything in a while. Well, I'm gonna do something about that now. For your consideration is a funny NSFW video by the ever irreverent and dirty-mouthed comedian Sarah Silverman. Mocking and decrying the new voter ID laws being vigorously pushed throughout the country by the Republicans which are apparently designed to keep key demographics such as blacks, Latinos, students and the financially disenfranchised from exercising their right to vote, Silverman offers a scathing, profanity-laced rebuttal that is sometimes funny and at all times, well, Sarah Silverman.

Ten Of The Coolest Summer Olympics Posters Going Back to 1912

These are ten of the most celebrated Summer Olympics posters of the modern era. The posters represent countries in Europe, Asia and the America and they date back from 1912 to 1992. I was going to do more posters from more years but I found the task a little daunting. Anyway, some of the art works represented here are aesthetically gorgeous like the poster from Stockholm 1912 and the one for Los Angeles 1932. Which one do you like best?

When will Africa hold its first Summer Olympics? I'd love to see the posters for that!

Kinky Print Ad For Curtains Spooks Me

Do people respond to kinky, sexually-charged advertising more positively than they do to tepid, non-sexual commercial ads? If we consider the powerful and oft-used adage that tells us that "sex sells" then the answer to the question is a foregone conclusion. Or is it?

In any event, advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather of Bangkok, Thailand conceived this raunchy print ad campaign for Mr. Curtain. Do I feel inspired by the kinky images to purchase this product? Absolutely not! The last thing I want every time I look at my curtains is to envision sex orgies taking place underneath them. But that's just me.

Fugly in Pink: Scott Scheidley's Colorful Makeover Of Hitler,Stalin and Kim Complete With Earrings

Notorious mass murderers Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong-il have been given a most colorful pink make-over complete with earrings and heart-shaped tinted glasses by American artist Scott Scheidly. In reference to the work, the artist states that "the idea stems from Spoke Art gallery's "Coen Brothers Vs Quentin Tarantino" show I did last year from the film 'Inglorious Basterds'. I had previously come up with the idea of an all pink show and figured this was a great starting point.

"The idea is really all about the power of colour and symbology and how it can change perception."

"The reaction has been huge and mostly positive. I understand not everyone is going to get this type of art or humour. Controversy is always a good thing though.I decided to paint Hitler as actor Martin Wuttke."

Pretty in pink? Hardly. Ugly is ugly. But I do find those earrings, especially the one on Stalin, kinda funny.


Madonna Brandishes Weapons In Israel Concert and Then Calls For World Peace

Madonna kicked off her 'MDNA' concert tour in Israel in plenty of style. Madonna style. For starters, there's the usual Madonna-branded controversy galore in Israel because of the AK47 and the other weapons displayed onstage. There is also the ubiquitous religious imagery and symbolism Madonna loves to inject into her shows that always end up pissing off the religious types. And there is also plenty of other shit on the shows that The Queen of Pop has been getting away with for 30 years and that always seem to rub many people the wrong way every-freaking-time like clockwork. Her antics get her press and keep her in the public discourse and whether people elevate her or tear her up, it does not matter. The effect is the same.

But let me be frank and state my bias: I like Madonna. I like her because I think she is very talented and I like her music and her elaborate concerts although I have never been to one of her shows. But most of all, I like her because at the age of 53, she carries on in spite of (or maybe because of, who knows) her many haters and detractors. The woman does not give a rat's ass; she does as she wants and continues to be immensely successful and popular with a humongous base of adoring fans. And I say, let the haters hate Madgesty. Let them eat cake. Who gives a rodent's derriere?!

'The Royal Dozen'--Alexia Sinclair's Magnificent Portraits of Some of the Most Influential Men in History

Artist’s Statement

Princes, warlords, dandies and diplomats take the stage to form a lavish series of portraits titled The Royal Dozen. Through the study of nobility in history and portraiture, multimedia artist Alexia Sinclair has produced twelve innovative artworks formed from thousands of photographs and illustrations.

Legends of the lives of the nobles continue to captivate us today, from the pampered decadence of Louis XIV to the epic legend of Alexander the Great. Other rulers who also form this series are less renowned yet equally intriguing. An unusual blend of Royalty, their selection was based on their contrasts in leadership, their flamboyance and their enduring influence upon society.

Traveling the globe photographing architecture and landscapes, Sinclair returned to Australia to hand make bespoke costuming for each portrait. Photographing role‐playing models and props in the studio, she then meticulously stitched together her photographs and hand illustrations like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle.

In the style of the renaissance masters, Sinclair weaves a myriad of delicious symbols and motifs into each portrait, allowing each story to unfold. Exploring the complexities of the famous, the infamous and the obscure, these portraits celebrate historical realities within the guise of contemporary fantasy, a kind of conversation between the past and present.

Once again Alexia Sinclair has outdone herself with this magnificent work. I was first introduced to Sinclair's creations via her series of beautiful and exquisite digital portraits of twelve of the most influential women in European history called The Royal Twelve which was featured in Lunatica Desnuda previously. Enjoy!

Marquis de Sade – “The Sadist” (1740–1814)

Genghis Khan – “The Mongol Warrior” (1162–1227)

Lorenzo de' Medici – “The Magnificent” (1449–1492)

Charles II – “The Merrie Monarch” (1630-1685)

Vlad Draculea – “Son of the Dragon” (1431-1476)

Alexander the Great – “Son of Zeus” (356–323 bc)

Peter Romanov – “The Great” (1672–1725

Hannibal – “Grace of Baal” (247–182 bc)

Pope Alexander VI – “The Borgia Pope” (1431 –1503)

Shah Jahan – “King of the World” (1592 –1666)

Louis XIV – “The Sun King” (1638–1715)

Napoleon Bonaparte – “Emperor of the French” (1769–1821)

Striking Likeness of Sylvester Stallone Spotted on 500 Year Old Raphael Masterpiece

Harvard student Anthony Zonfrell, 20, who was on vacation in Italy with his family made an amusing discovery on one of Old Master Raphael paintings: The Ivy League student discovered the likeness of actor Sylvester Stallone, best known for playing boxing underdog Rocky, on the background of a 1511 Raphael painting called The Cardinal and Theological Virtues which features Pope Gregory IX approving new Papal laws.

Zonfrell said, “My cousin had told us about how she had seen it when she went, so we were on the lookout. As soon as we saw the painting, we knew it was him. My whole family thought it was hilarious. It could actually be a portrait of Stallone.”

Looking at that particular "Rocky" photo of Stallone side by side with the subject on the painting, it is definitely inevitable to see a hilarious resemblance. Who knew that Stallone was that old?
