Restless Lochness on Tumblr cleverly draws out the many faces and emotions of Edgar Allan Poe. I shall no longer think of him as “that Raven guy,” but only as Edgar Allan Bro:
Once upon a midnight dreary,
while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten PBR
Okay, fine. I’m no poet but you get the picture.
Oh Yoko! You’ve done it again! Your partnership with Opening Ceremony is just the gift that keeps on giving! But seriously, as a male I do confess that I know nothing about makeup so I’m glad you came up with this video to show me and my boys that there are no limits to what we can do with makeup.
This tutorial video is threaded together by a poem that has amazing lines like, “When you see a rainbow in the sky/Breathe it in/And make your room into a rainbow,” and “Everything that sparkles will bring you a sparkling life/Sparkling eyes, sparkling belly button, sparkling legs.” And even some great advice like “Take rainbow pills – but with caution.” Did we mention the background music? You need to listen the background music.
But it’s not all fun and games as she gets seriously deep. Throw away that mirror, she says!
Yoko has you or your gents covered with make-up tips for daytime, evening and dawn with all three looks just as kooky and amazing as the next. Her oh-so wise advice will pair well with the crotch-grab Opening Ceremony fashion line, which she says was inspired by John Lennon’s body. TMI? TMI.
Oh, Yoko. You win all the awards!
I’m kind of angry with author Spencer Madsen right now. He just made my inner cat lady cry with a poem of all things! Read “My Cat is Sad” from the book, A Million Bears below:
Are you crying yet? Did you go hug your cat? Maybe you should adopt another one from the animal shelter so they can be friends and be happy, like these cats:
Now go love your cat.
Rapper Tupac Shakur’s only screenplay ever made will be turned into a film, reports MTV News.
A notorious double threat, Tupac produced platinum albums and singles and also earned notices for his acting in films such as “Juice” and “Poetic Justice.”
But the notorious rapper, who studied acting, poetry, jazz and ballet while performing in Shakespearean plays at the Baltimore School for the Arts as a teenager, not only acted in plays and movies, he also apparently wrote them.
Now, the rights to the only full screenplay Shakur wrote while he was in jail, titled “Live 2 Tell,” have been acquired by a production company that plans to start filming the movie next year.
One of the producers Preston Holmes has collaborated with Shakur’s mother, Afeni, on the 2003 documentary “Tupac: Resurrection” and Afeni will be an executive producer on the $11 million project as well.
The script is described as the story of a teenage drug dealer and his struggles to leave a life of crime. It was written by Shakur while he served an 11-month sentence on sexual assault charges.
“This kid was a genius, and the net of it is, he was from this community, he knew the struggles these young people were dealing with,” said Ivan Juzang, whose NStar Studios was behind the acquisition of the screenplay. “And he’s able to talk to young people in 2011, 2012, the same way he was able to talk to young people in 1995.” Holmes had originally contacted Shakur about the script when the rapper was still behind bars.
“We think that the name we need is the name we have, which is Tupac Shakur,” Holmes said.
This is the second attempt at making the film. The script was first optioned more than five years ago by the Insomnia Media Group and was slated to start production in March 2006. No casting for that version was ever confirmed.
I think this is a nice ode to Tupac’s work – the man had some serious talent, and it’s nice to be shared.
