The proper clothes or pin-up of the 30-60′s. Part I

Some great pin-up drawings.

Likera defines Pin-up: "Pin-up… What is pin-up actually? Pin-up means different things for different people. The original meaning is a picture for pinning up on a wall. The first pin-ups appeared around 1890, though the term was first attested in 1941."

Classic cool is always cool in my book.

 

Mariel Clayton's Barbies are no role models.

Mariel Clayton's vision of Barbie is closer to Showtime's Dexter than the wholesome pin-up girl everyone is used to.

Mariel Clayton Barbie

Koi Koi Koi states: "Mariel Clayton is a self-taught photographer. In an action figures shop in Tokyo she had the vision of the world where all those dolls’ stories happen, and she wanted to visit it and take photos. Her main character is the most famous doll of all times: Barbie, that after throwing away (literally, very often) her fashion victim clothes, become executioner and gives vent to her bound violence on Ken. And, admit it, you’d do it too!"

She [Clayton] says: “ (I’m) A Doll Photographer with a subversive sense of humour. I believe that life is a hysterically messed up place, and if we don’t laugh at it, we’ll never understand it. I didn’t have a hard childhood, I was never abused, I’m not an ‘evil, dark or psychologically scarred’ person. I just think what I do is damn freaking funny – and I like to share the humour with people.

Even Barbiefest.com has this to say: "Mariel Clayton is of the opinion that Barbie’s figure is highly unrealistic and would require no less than 27 plastic surgeries to emulate in real life. Instead of just ranting and raving about the plastic girl whose story is based only on her outfits and their ability to attract Ken—the single man in her life—Mariel Clayton has created some of the most disturbing (and intriguing) scenes ever used with a Barbie doll, which she then photographs."

I have to agree with Mariel.  It's freaking funny.  Check out her website with some of her other work here: www.thephotographymarielclayton.com

 

Bizarre coincidence: Did Bin Laden and Hitler die on the same day?

Bin Laden and Hitler deaths both announced on the same day.  Coincidence... I think not!  All your May 1st are belong to us!

"Globaltvbc: "In a truly odd coincidence Osama Bin Laden and Adolph Hitler apparently died on the same day, well, at least the announcements of their deaths occurred on the same day. Sixty-six years ago it was announced on the evening of May 1, 1945 that Hitler killed himself in his bunker in Berlin. On Sunday night in the USA it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed in a firefight with U.S. forces. Keep in mind, the timing of these death announcements are all in Eastern Standard Time."

Hitler

Time also reports: "Despite the jubilation (mostly) worldwide over the death of Osama bin Laden, the biggest enemy so far this century, it's easy to forget the historic coincidence of the death of the biggest mass murderer of the previous century.

 

On May 1, 1945, Germany announced that Adolf Hitler was dead, leading to the end of the allied campaign in Europe during World War II. That same date 66 years later, President Obama announced the death of the al-Qaeda leader and international terrorist."

 

Vincent - Tim Burton Short Animation [1982]

1982 stop-motion short film written, designed and directed by Tim Burton and Rick Heinrichs narrated by Vincent Price. Vincent Price later said that the film was "the most gratifying thing that ever happened. It was immortality—better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard."
