Back when Bear Stearns Bravo launched, I did a WHOIS request, and found that Synydyne is based in my hometown of Albany, NY. However, the address has been lost to time, as they’ve updated the WHOIS with a privacy block. Anyone still have the WHOIS lying around or know how to get around the privacy filter?
Looking down onto the set of Stage III’s production of “Angels in America.” Opening night. Lets hope all goes well.
All of a sudden, the NY Red Bulls tag has been filled with One Direction. Do not want.
In the DC Universe, there is a literal rainbow of emotions, plus white and black. I know, this isn’t new, but I just finished the Blackest Night arc, so it got me thinking.
As reference, in order of ROYGBIV: Red: anger Orange: greed Yellow: fear Green: will Blue: hope Indigo: compassion Violet: love Black: death White: creation
So, love. Love, instead of creation should be the combination of all of the spectrum. Love can be angry, because it doesn’t take well to shattering. Love can be greedy, because it’s possessive. Love can be fear-inducing, because you’re afraid of messing it up. Love takes willpower, because it takes a concerted effort. Love can be hopeful, because you look forward to a future with the person you love. Love is compassionate, because you have to overlook mistakes.
So, while I really, really don’t like the Star Sapphires, I have to hand it to their part of the emotional spectrum, no matter how unstable.
In his ongoing series of portraits titled Just the Two of Us, photographer Klaus Pitchler gained access to the homes of Austrian costume play (cosplay) enthusiasts where he photographed the elaborately costumed individuals against the backdrops of their everyday life. Artist statement:
Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for awhile? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else. ’Just the Two of Us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.
While the costumes are incredible, terrifying, and laughable, it’s the strange juxtaposition of ordinary home life and the unknown identities of each individual that create such great images. See much more here. All images courtesy Klaus Pichler.
