"The FIFA World Cup is truly an event which unites the world. I stumbled across this animation by Renske Mijnheer, which illustrates that the World Cup is more than nations just battling each other in football for a gold trophy. There are underground complexed issues like racism, which has been floating around football and the World Cup for a while. An example of racial tension in soccer is in 2006, while playing for the German team FC Sachsen Leipzig, Nigerian footballer Adebowale Ogungbure was attacked by hooligans with racial slurs. Ogungbure retaliated with the Adolf Hitler salute, then he was physically grab by opposing supporters. Or when England's Shaun Wright-Phillips and Ashley Cole were subject to racial chants in 2004 by Spanish supporters when England played Spain. Or the speculation of Germany's Micahel Ballack's racial hostility against Half-Ghanaian German born Kevin-Prince Boateng.
This clever cardboard animation directed by Robbert-Jan Vos titled 'Go South Africa!', tackles an aspect of racism with a creative light-hearted approach, with a tale involving the production of soccer balls."
Nice way to illustrate a point. I can only imagine the unbridaled racism that occurs on the fields of the World Cup. Especially with the Nazi playing footballers. I kid germany. I kid. (But not really).
1. An oil spill on any website.2. The NY Post takes the World Cup loss with class and grace.4. Homemade Old Spice commercial. This is what your little boy can smell like.5. Another American Apparel ad. Pornography.6. This is how you loose your job...when you work for the President.7. What the taiwanese do with their free time. (NSFW).8. No really...why advertising sucks. Ouch.9. This, is how you burn some carbs...10 hour tennis match.

I like it.
Babies poop. Thats a fact. It might aswell be organic. So instead of turds...you get little pieces of the great outdoor. Gross, but funny and a good idea.

Aquilera is still around, doing her thing. Good for her.
Nicki Minaj??? Eh.
Funny. Cause it's true.
Word on the street is that these guys didn't know they were posing for a gay magazine. I wish I believed that.
I think it's about time this show gets cancelled.
I've never hated the letter "V" so much in my life.
Twilight buzz. I'm team Jacob (if you cared).
Dancing...not as smooth as Michael, but well done. The break down....I'm still up in the air about tha tone. Check out the video to see what I mean. We all havn't forgot that you hit girls Chris Brown.
I'm just saying.
This has nothing to do with anything (maybe we can put it under Wimbledon coverage). I just think it's funny how on this "urban website" the caption reads "Serena Williams hugging 'some guy'..." Ummm, you mean the only notable male professional tennis player that has represented USA in countless international tournaments for at least a decade...ANDY RODDICK?????
It's funny how our cultural melting pot of a country, no matter how hard we try is more like a stove oven. We are all on the same stove, but we all cook up or own sh*t on completely different burners. And when we finally see each other on the plate, we pretend to know about each other. This coming from a man who has had to describe what a line up was at least 10 thousand times in 26 years.
Side note: Andy Roddick is the most popular professional male tennis players in the world right now. Andy Murray and James Blake, I could see someone not knowing them. And I'm not counting the past...Sampers...Aggassi....etc.
Dutch designer Tomáš Gabzdil Libertiny made a sculpture of Jesus that was completed by 40,000 bees. He erected a sealed glass container with his mold inside. Libertiny then released 40,000 bees who worked on the honeycombed surface of the mold
Ok, so I'm really proud of the title of this post. But I can't help but to feel a little bad about it as well. I was raised (like much of America) in a very religious household. Does that inhibit me ability to think rationally and logically? No. And it certainly does not inhibit my ability to be creative and realize art objectivly. But what is this art installation really?
This man simply to a major religous icon and set bees upon it. This is just a bee farm in the shape of Jesus Christ. My parents would be appalled. Literally. But in the long run I'm left wondering what the point is. Interesting? Yes. Creative? Sure. Art???? I'm not convinced. Blasphemy aside, I can do random provocative things too. You dont see me going around calling it art. But eh???? What ever, I'm still really amped about my post title. Haha....
You'll sleep well, cause your baby will sleep well. It's smart and it has the right feel to it...you know? I like it. I want to know how they went about casting, because these models fit the bill eerily so.
Here's a twist....instead of playing on the audiences nostalgia, the movie world decided to make a movie about something that still exists today. It's like an Ancient Egyptian watccing a reenactment of the building of the pyramids, whilst the pyramids were being built. Wait, what?
Oh yeah...my point being...can't we just wiki it? Or better yet, log on to facebook.
....confuses the sh*t out of me. At first, they high light McDonalds as a place not only with awesome french fries, but also as gay friendly (as if anyone thought it wasn't before), and now they reference the gay culture to beastiality? Either advertising in France is all whacked out or being gay in France is a completely different animal than here in the states.
See what I did there? Ha ha.
"...First created for the ’66 cup in England, World Cup mascots are suppose to symbolize the host country. In reality, they do a terrible job while looking ridiculous."
Check out the 10 dumbest World Cup mascots here. I actually don't agree with all of the list. OK, I do. Germany's giant muppet Lion with the talking soccer ball takes the cake. But the USA World Cup pup in '94 wasn't all that bad was it? And this little cheetah dude with green spikey hair is both cute and gnarly, no? I mean...perhaps a few kinks and curls would be more acurate, but overall....they are ALL ten times better than what London is doing to the Olympics in 2012.

Thanks alot football (soccer). On another note, since they won....I'll have to endure another week of work hour outbursts and people inviting me to get get drunk at 8am on Saturday morning.
1. Things no one told us, but we learn anyway....illustrated.2. Seriously, Russia has no advertising standards. Airline Advertising = Vagina's. (NSFW)3. Remember in 4th grade, when you used folders in school to hide your tests? Well fuck that...it's 2010.
4. For the ladies...this is the opposite of Megan Fox being in lingerie.5. The anti rape condom.....makes my pee pee hurt thinking about it.6. Blue Boobies and pee pees: Hustler has just wrapped production on highest-budget movie production to date, a XXX parody of James Cameron’s Avatar. Titled This Ain’t Avatar XXX.8. Batman's made up his mind, he's keeping Superman's baby (seriously, everyone I show this to is a little disturbed by it...I think it's funny.)9. Open letter from Jon Voight to President Obama...bring n the crazy.

So, I'm here to review the B.O.B album. Something I would have never thought I would do. After I heard that Beautiful Girls song 10 thousand times on the radio, I took it off my ipod and thought I'd never hear from this guy again, willingly. Well, it turns out I spoke too soon. Stuck in someone elses car driving from NJ, I heard the whole album. And it is truly refreshing. Apparently he is multi-talented artist....sings, raps...plays instruments too. Above is his lasted video for the song Airplanes which features Kyley Williams (???).
What I like is that he isn't afreiad to mix sounds on his album. He clearly is an urban music head at heart....but his album still manages to feel like every song is different- featuring artist from Weezer, Janelle Monae, Eminem Lupe Fiasco, TI and more. It's good sh*t mang (and womang). Below are a few of my favorites from what apparently is his freshman album: B.o.B: Presents The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Get on it.
You are welcome.
For some reason...this creeps me out. Lack of sense aside. And the bit of silly sterotyping involved (cause when did hip hop become "the cool way" of selling cars). This creeps me out the more I look at it.
The title of this post is all I have to say about these ads. Creativity? Concept? Nope. Just ass and titties. That's all. Oh yeah....this is NSFW.
Hiedi still looking hot as ever. Pregnant ladies....
"'Ball man" a giant sculpture comprised of almost 3,000 footballs (that's soccer balls for those of us in the US) designed by Leeds-based Ratcliffe Fowler Design hangs in the atrium of the Carlton Centre shopping mall in downtown Johannesburg."
Very cool work by Nike, ofcoarse. I'm surprised there is nothing like this hanging in Time Square. America's new found love and excitement for football warrants that...no?
Being from a culture that loves everything about football (not me personally), you must excuse how skeptical I am about the citizens actually caring about football. Infact, I may have compared the current "soccer" hysteria with that of a child who gets a new toy, and soon forget about it a few weeks later.
But in the mean time....keep on drinking at those bars.
