Saul Bass’s rejected poster concepts for The Shining, including handwritten notes by director Stanley Kubrick. (via)
This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.
If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.
this is really fucking sad
i think of everything we learn without even noticing
OK Soda was a soft drink created by The Coca-Cola Company in 1993 that aggressively courted the Generation X demographic with unusual advertising tactics, including endorsements and even outright negative publicity. It did not sell well in select test markets and was officially declared out of production in 1995 before reaching nation-wide distribution. The drink’s slogan was “Things are going to be OK.”
Walter van Beirendonck autumn / winter 2000-01
This Winter Collection 2000-2001 is based on one main concept: each garment can be dissected and rethought in various layers and functionality. Layering drastically changes the function of the garment and the shape of the body: a shirt becomes more than just a shirt, a jacket becomes a royal coat. Cutting through the different layers is used to achieve an optimal effect. This collection wants to bring back a feeling of pride and dressing up into fashion: one wears a striking, almost majestic garment. Dressing up is revalue as a performing ritual, including the assistance of a dresser. The face frames crowning the models have been realised by Stephen Jones, and merely accentuate the beauty of the wearers. The shape of the shoes follows the anatomy of the feet, focusing on the toes, which are pressed into the natural coloured leather. 184 different fabrics were used in the making of this collection.
