By the time I publish this, it’s most likely that at least 4 different friends have already shared it on their Facebook news feed. It also has nearly 300k views on Vimeo. The one day I slept in.
So, without pretending to be the first one, it’s totally worth posting it, even a bit late. Tatia Pilieva asked 20 complete (or at least we think so) strangers to kiss in front to a camera. It’s so adorable, awkward and sexy, it almost makes you run on the street and find someone to kiss. Obviously people like that don’t really walk on the streets, but anyway, just play it. The guy with the hat and the blond chick are my favourite. They’re single, I can tell you that.
This morning, 2 months ago, yesterday, 23 years ago, never, just now..? Touching is a complicated matter, I see.
touched-some1.com has launched to promote the latest sci-fi movie starring Scarlett Johansson – Under the skin. Horror sci-fi, to be precise – an alien seductress (Scarlett) preys upon hitchhikers in Scotland. Brilliant.
Check out some of the answers and then go touch someone for real. It’s healthy.
I love Sofia. Sofia is just amazing.
If you happen to have any doubts about it, here is a 4-minute-long proof, powered by Under the line and Go Guide. We have a bunch of fine young ladies and gents, singing the almost annoyingly happy song by Pharrell and dancing at some of the prettiest places in Sofia. Well, actually at all of them, but let’s not start on this now. Also – some really cute grandpas, a pair of newlyweds, a Monsters Inc member, some passing by strangers and a few dogs. Supercool.
We’re in the age of liberty and rebellion, that’s for sure.
First we have Proud To Protest – a project by SHOWstudio’s Ruth Hodgen and Gareth Pugh in support of Amnesty International’s campaign to raise awareness for gay and lesbian rights. Ruth, who we know from pretty much every Pugh movie, shot another abstract-black-and-white-metaphoric video for the occasion. Very Pugh-ish indeed. The more interesting part of the project, if you ask me, are the striking 20-seconds videos with emblematic figures such as Kate Moss, Nicola Formichetti, Roskanda Illincic, Stephen Jones and my all-time favourite – Michele Lamy. You can watch them all here. And try to find Lamy *hint: search for the most glassy eyes*.
Number two we have Barney’s latest campaign featuring an entirely transgender cast of beautiful ladies and gents. To be honest I’d never imagine something so modern as intersex rights to float around the strict and classic floors of Barney’s, but that’s only my bad. The very-amazing and very-american Bruce Weber shot the advertorial together with a short movie of testimonials from the ‘models’ and their family. It’s truly inspiring to see people who are so well aware of themselves and the world around them. I mean, besides knowing which sex I’m attracted to, everything else is a bit of a mystery to me, so thumbs up for those guys.
Sounds almost like an oxymoron. Or a moron.
Few reactions to Spike Jonze’s latest film Her, that I saw from this sweet guy. A heavily weird Asian girl, few incurable pessimists, some realists and a hopelessly-in-love-romantic-she-understands-everything-about-me type a dude. Bless him.
The movie itself is pure hopeless magic. At first you’re not really buying all the geeky futuristic technology on top of the most happily looking orange/pink/yellow backdrop and Scarlett Johansson painfully sexy voice. Then you just realise that’s not the point. Besides, sweet mother of god, Joaquin Phoenix. Nechovek.
So before this starts looking like a movie review – just play some of the short documentary below. Or better yet – the movie.
