Malmö today, Iceland in July, New York in September & Argentina in December. Who's game? I'd prefer someone who's fun. People who have never been to Amsterdam, Australia, Thailand or Norway will get free tickets.
I read somewhere that they considered excluding women's hockey from the next Olympics, because some teams are so much better than the others. Meaning, there's no real competition taking place. To me, that makes no sense. Not when "sports" like curling and fucking BOB-SLEIGH are included in the Olympics. I don't watch women's hockey, but I would definitely watch that over bob-sleigh. They call it a sport, when it's clearly just four retards in some form of aerodynamic metal condom, trying desperately not to die. And the team that came closest to dying, without actually doing so, wins. You know what? Forget what I said. You can scrap women's hockey in the next Olympics, but only if you replace it with Russian Roulette.
I developed a new roll, and here are a few more gems from Berlin & Gothenburg. Alongside these images, are a few things that I wish you wouldn't put in your Facebook-status:
-What you had/are having for dinner. Most people eat food. -That you are freaking out because of an exam. -A quote from a song about lost love. -That you hate the weather.
Suggestions are welcome, as always. I'm about to watch the Sweden-Belarus hockey game in the Olympics. I'm feeling pretty confident, because according to several interviews conducted by the Swedish media geniuses, the Sweden players will "try to do their best to win", and when the opportunity presents itself, they will "do their best to score". Great, that clearly indicates that our players know what the basic concept of hockey is. With that knowledge, we'll be unstoppable.
I finally understand why people get into politics. I never could myself, but it was all because I didn't understand the true core of politics. I thought everything was so complicated, when in fact, it's quite simple. The reason why people get into politics, is because they want to shave their heads in public. I don't blame them, it really is the best.
I remember reading that Ellen Von Unwerth(At least I think it was her) once said that it was way harder for her generation to make it as photographers. To me, that is bona fide bullshit. Granted, it was harder getting your images out there without the internet, but the competition was way less stiff, considering that the advertising market was moving away from illustrations and into photography. Plus, with today's snapshots making into Vogue, who even needs a light meter anymore? I know I don't use one. I'm not saying it was much easier then, I'm just saying that was a stuck-up thing to say. And I haven't even mentioned the fact that this woman was a model for 10 years before even venturing into fashion photography. Gee, I wonder if she had any connections in the fashion industry after 10 years on a runway? Von Unwerth is definitely a legit photographer, but that was still a dumb statement. Speaking of dumb, these are five photographers that should have known better:
5. Hedi Slimane - One of the greatest menswear designers decided to take about one thousand steps back and become a bad photographer. Everyone likes a challenge, I guess. 4. Mario Testino - I just think it's boring. 3. Karl Lagerfeld - Some people should just stick to what they know. His pictures have less character than a gold fish. 2. Rankin - His pictures make me want to eat my own head, just so I can't ever see them again. 1. David LaChappelle - Unlike Tim Walker, who uses props to create dream-like scenarios, David LaChappelle's pictures are just tacky and unattractive. Plus, he uses celebrities to create shock value, a manoeuvre clearly engineered to cover up for his total lack of talent.
The good thing about the internet, is that it's really easy finding cool photos. I could find 5 new, talented people every time I go on the internet, if I wanted to. Here are some cool photographers that I've stumbled across(including the one at the top of the post):
This is part one of "Free love on the freelove freeway", obviously named after David Brent's musical masterpiece. These pictures are from my past couple of weeks in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Berlin. This week-end, I intend on shaking my behind vividly. Stay tuned for that. Until then, this is a great song. I'm starting to understand where Daft Punk's music comes from.
