paper dolls

My sister and I spent many days drawing and creating paper doll clothes when we were kids. We would watch old 50's movies and copy outfits. I even remember some crazy sci fi creations too. I think we had one old 50's doll which we copied to make our own versions. Like these hilarious ones found on Swapatorium. I wish we still had them.

jan pehechaan-ho

Remember this from a scene in Ghost World? I've always wondered where this crazy masked wig out came from after seeing a snippet in the film. It's from a 1966 Indian film Gumnaam. Thanks to the Shimmy's for pointing it out. Oh and Jan Pechachaan-ho means 'We should get to know each other' in Hindi.

beautiful losers

I just saw this film last night, about the early 90's DIY art scene in New York, featuring the awesome Margaret Kilgallen, plus Barry Mc Gee and Shepard Fairey, etc. Well worth a look, the film is a little all over the place but inspiring and funny. On at acmi in Melbourne this weekend. See the trailer here.
