ESMOD 2010 graduates - "Post Apocalyptic" by: FREDRIK DE LANGE



NORSK:

Forrige onsdag(9. juni) presenterte avgangselevane ved ESMOD avgangskolleksjonane sine. Og i staden for å gi mi anmelding av kvar enkelt som viste der, vil eg heller gi ekstra oppmerksamheit til favorittane mine.

FREDRIK DE LANGE hadde utan tvil den beste herrekolleksjonen. At han vann pris for "Beste Herredesign" var altså ingen overrasking. Ein post apokalyptisk kolleksjon med gjennomførte og uimotståelege detaljar i form av alle dets materialer frå strikk til skinn. Det er vanskeleg å kombinere såpass mange forskjellige materialer, men Fredrik har klart det med overlegen stil. Denne guten har talent!

///

ENGLISH:
Last wednesday(9th. of June) the ESMOD graduates presented their graduate collections. In stead of giving my review of all of the students, I'd rather give extra attention to my favourites.

FREDRIK DE LANGE had with out a doubt the best menswear collection. That he recieved the award for "Best Menswear Design" was absolutely no surprise. A post apocalyptic collection with through and irresistable details in shape of all of its materials from knit to leather. Gorgeous! It is hard to combine all those materials, but Fredrik made it with superior style. This boy's got talent!

Burzum's Hlidskjalf vs Glenn Danzig's Black Aria

Guest post by: Thomas
-----

Burzum is the one-man project of Varg Vikernes (aka Christian Vikernes and Count Grishnackh). He's without doubt the most famous figure in Norwegian black metal. Burzum has an unpredictably experimental bent - encompassing black metal, industrial, electronic, and dark ambient music. Recently he released «Belus» to great reviews worldwide. In 1999 Burzum released Hlidskjalf. This album were, along with Daudi Baldrs, created with synthesized instruments as he was not allowed any other instruments while being imprisoned. In Norse mythology, Hliðskjálf is the high seat of Odin enabling him to see into all worlds.


Back in 1992 Glenn Danzig released his Black Aria album, wich is a totally different record from his work in Misfits, Samhain and Danzig. Some of the material on the album was recorded as early as 1987. The album is largely modern instrumental classical music, and is very dark, with perhaps "gothic metal" tendencies. The song titles reference a sort of "soundtrack" to John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost, which describes Lucifer's rebellion from the Christian God, and his subsequent expulsion from Heaven with the angels who joined him. The final three tracks do not reference Paradise Lost, because they were written earlier by Danzig while he was still in Samhain.


Two great albums with several similiraities. And if Burzum and Glenn ever would join forces, I'm pretty sure they would manage to create one awesome album!

Death By Unga Bunga - Don't Go Looking For My Heart



NORSK:
60-talet all over again. Med bandnamn tatt frå eit album av LA-punkbandet The Mummies, er lydbilete deira bygga over klar inspirasjon frå 50 år gamle støvete vinylar. Eg likar det. Ja, faktisk! Death By Unga Bunga - Don't Go Looking For My Heart.

Illustration by: Nathan Jurevicious

NORSK:
Eg blir heilt fortrylla av å besøke det spennande universet til Nathan Jurevicios. Skaparen bak karakteren "Scarygirl" har ikkje spart på noko og laga både nettspill og vinylfigurar bygd på det som starta som illustrasjonar, av ei lita jente som prøver å finne grunnen til sin eksistens. Eg er blitt hekta på spillet - Det kan du prøve det ut HER.Illustrasjonane snakkar for seg sjølv.

Resycled ROBOTS from Brian Marshall



NORSK:
Brian Marshall tar resirkulering til eit nytt nivå med sine robotar, laga av det som mange vil betrakta som søppel. På Flickr og bloggen hans kan du sjekke ut endå fleire sjarmerande robotar frå han, då han stadig produserer nye kreasjonar.
Etsy kan du også kjøpe deg ein eigen robot, også kalt "Adobtabot". Fascinerande! Eg vil gjerne ha ein slik! Sjøl om eg hadde hatt store problemer med å velje ein favoritt. Kanskje han tannlegen over her. Litt usikker..

Kva for ein robot likte du best?


///

ENGLISH:

Brian Marshall brings resycling to a new level with his robots, made of what many sees as garbage. On his Flickr page and on his Blog you can check out even more of his charming robots. He's constantly updating and producing new creatures.
In his Etsy shop you can also buy yourself a robot, also called "Adobtabot". Fascinating! I would love to adoptabot! Though I'd have problems to pick just one. Maybe the dentist above..

Which robot is your favourite?

The charming TUNES of Cleo T.


Cleo T.

NORSK:
Ei stemme eg ikkje blir lei av om dagen er stemmeprakta til franske Cleo T. Klikk på namnet hennar og høyr mange vakre godbitar på myspace sida hennar. Sjarmerande, skeivt og vakkert på same tid - min favorittkombinasjon. Minner fort om CocoRosie, som ikkje er negativt i det heile tatt! (Rel.post: "Beautiful Boyz" by: CocoRosie)
Under er ein filmsnutt av låta "Columbine".

ENGLISH:
I never get tired of the voice of Cleo T. Click on her name to get to her myspace page and listen to a selection of gorgeous tunes.
