Yes, It Exists: One Direction Perfume

One Direction Perfume
Photo By Gail

As proof that One Direction Mania has infiltrated all corners of the world, I took the above photo while vacationing in Hamilton, Bermuda. So, there really is no escaping it. There actually appear to be two separate fragrances: That Moment and Our Moment. A little sleuthing on my part reveals that That Moment is actually an updated version of Our Moment. Blah Blah Blah. I hate knowing that this perfume exists.

And just what does a women’s fragrance from One Direction smell like, you ask? Let’s find out. According to Frangrantica Dot Com, “Our Moment by One Direction is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women. Top notes are pink grapefruit, forest fruits and red currant; middle notes are freesia, jasmine and frangipani; base notes are woodsy notes, patchouli and musk.”

What the hell are “Forest Fruits”? I ask yez.

Anyway, the user reviews are hilarious and my favorite is this one:

“Smells exactly like Britney Spears Circus Fantasy. Nothing special about it. A typical celeb perfume.”

Britney Spears Circus Fantasy? I don’t even want to know what that smells like.

Here’s a crazy fun exhibit that Geoffrey and I literally stumbled on during our recent fall season-launch art crawl: Poster Child, a series of new photographic works by Bruce Pavlow.

Viewing Poster Child in the gallery is like walking into an imagined tween or teenagers bedroom. Pavlow has photographed various posters of popular culture icons including bands, pop star pin ups, animals, landscapes and motivational mottos – which the artist asserts have been created by fictitious characters that have enhanced and personalized the images by incorporating ready-made slogan bumper stickers and colorful icon stickers from craft and toy stores.

With the embellishment of these memes and slogans, each poster illustrates a personalized narrative and context, reflecting the thoughts and desires of the fictitious characters as well as the culture at large.

The re-created posters are then photographed (no Photoshop was used) and digitally printed at near actual size on watercolor paper, giving them a photo-realist quality that amplifies the subsequent transformation. The humor, as you can see is quite sardonic and subversive. Check out Poster Child before it closes!

Pink Thing of the Day: Octo-Mom as Collectible Art!

Pink Thing of the Day is one of my very favorite things to blog about, and I usually dedicate it to something pink that I would actually want to own. This particular item? Not so much. I like to keep celebrity gossip out of The Gig and leave it to be done better by Best Week Ever and Gawker, and I truly find Nadya Suleman to be a completely loathsome and repulsive human being not deserving of any attention in a fun and awesome blog like this one. But hey, this shit is pink! So here we go. Always on the cutting edge of the latest controversial-topical-media-hype-overload, sculptor Daniel Edwards presents his latest work of art. Cast in eye-catching hot pink, “String of Babies” depicts Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman with tentacles in place of her body, appropriately holding a string of 8 babies and a baby bottle. The rubber collectible, depicting Octo-Mom embracing the world’s only surviving set of octuplets, fits into the pattern of Edward’s works “which take controversial media topics and present them in the form of art in a playful way” (Edwards’ previous works include Pregnant Britney Spears Giving Birth and Dead Paris Hilton).

Measuring 9 inches tall by 12 inches in diameter and made of flexible polyurethane material, “String of Babies” is a limited edition of just 200 pieces, signed and numbered by the artist. The first 50 are available for the must-own bargain price of just $199! Once those sell, the price skyrockets to $500. So, get them while they’re hot, as the saying goes. More pictures and exclusive purchasing information are right over here at Guy Hepner Editions’ website, Trend Hunter Dot Com.

As always, thanks to Neatorama for the tip!

Top Ten Things That Should Happen in 2008 to Make My Life Happier

Happiness

I have a lot of opinions about the kinds of things nobody else usually gives a crap about, and to keep track of all my opinions (in case I ever need evidence) I like to make lists. As we creep ever closer to the end of 2007 by the minute, I offer now, for your reading pleasure, my list of the:

Top Ten Things that Should Happen in 2008 to Make My Life Happier

10. Ryan Seacrest ceases to appear in all visual media so I never have to look at the insipid mug of this talentless hack ever again.

9. People of the Earth adopt the philosophy of Zero Population Growth so we can start to repair some of the damage we’ve done to our planet before it’s too late.

8. Smokers realize that the world is not their ashtray.

7. The View is canceled.

6. My lead-footed upstairs neighbors move away and are replaced by sedentary octogenarians.

5. Every charitable organization except Covenant House takes me off its mailing list forever.
