There's No Stopping Taxidermy Week

In keeping with Tal's definition of taxidermy....

(thanks to Justin Sullivan at Getty)

How do you feel about this ad?

Saw this commercial while watching Gossip Girl last night (don't judge) and it stopped me dead in my tracks. There's no sound and by the end I realized I hadn't been breathing the entire time I watched it. Seeing a corporation appropriate video art to sell sneakers might turn your stomach, but isn't this brilliant advertising? Thoughts?

Publikum Calendar

I took a trip to AIGA today, and saw this lovely show on the second floor - it's the Publikum Calendar - a Serbian project that collects 12 designers from around the world to each design a month for the calendar. In order from top: Big Active (pictograms), Garth Walker (Deer), (to come- grafitti), Marian Bantjes (white/silver), (rest to come).

The End is Here

OMG. I need some optimism right about now. The first two, "Life After People", are part of a plastic display that changes image as you move from left to right. The last two are fake Cloverfield posters, I think.

Weight Watchers Diet Ads

I am obsessed with these diet ads. I find that whenever I see something that's pure type in our image-saturated environment, my eyes dart to it immediately, no matter what it is. Unless it's taxidermed kittens.
