Danger Doom: The Mouse and the Mask

Danger Doom: The Mouse and the Mask

This is a great album. Danger Doom (aka MF Doom) presents us with absurd rhyme styles (reminiscent of ODB and Dr. Octagon) layered over eclectic, brilliant tracks. Fav songs: "Old School", "The Mask", "El Chupa Libre", "Bada Bing". This album is already a classic in my book.

  • Polly Borland's images lay within that odd place between the familiar and the monstrous.

The clothes we wear invariably telegraph information about our identity, our place in society and the stories we wish to convey about ourselves. The fantastically colorful costumes specific to African and Caribbean rituals and celebrations go several steps further, transforming ordinary people into mythic figures and magicians, tricksters and gods, and symbolizing the roles their wearers play in the ancient dramas that form the cornerstones of their cultural heritage. Phyllis Galembo began photographing the characters and costumes of African masquerade in Nigeria in 1985, and since then she has continued developing her theme throughout Africa and the Caribbean. This volume collects 108 thrilling carnival photographs from Nigeria, Benin, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Zambia and Haiti. In magnificent color shots, Galembo's subjects pose in striped bodysuits that cover the entire body, including the face; or outfits made entirely of bunched greenery; or a lacquered wooden mask topped with a headdress featuring full-body models of other characters; or an oversize misshapen animal head and plywood wings. The carnival characters, rooted in African religion and spirituality, are presented in chapters organized by tribal or carnival tradition and are accompanied by Galembo's personal commentary, shedding light on the characters and costumes portrayed, and on the events in which they play a pivotal role. Maske is a serious contribution to ethnographic study, a photo-essay about fashion and an assembly of superb images.

In her celebration of Halloween revelry, photographer Phyllis Galembo never settles for the ordinary; here instead are evocative scenes of dressed-to-scare young trick-or-treaters "modeling" their disguises, of undead spirits haunting their surroundings, and of costumes spanning over a century that take on an eerie new creepiness thanks to special lighting effects. Accompanying the costume shots is a history of this always-popular holiday and an essay placing the work in the wider context of fashion and costume. Of interest to enthusiasts, designers, and students alike, this devilishly diverting book is the perfect gift for all Halloween aficionados.

  • You know those cute little pink onion goggles so you don't cry when you cut onions? Those make me laugh.

  • This movie doesn't get the attention it deserves. It has Jim Carey, Cameron Diaz and bank robberies, that's really all you need for a funny movie!

  • Sleeping on planes is always rather difficult. It's pretty necessary to get a mask and ear plugs if you want to get any sort of comfortable rest.

  • What a provocative cover. I would never want to admit to buying a book based on its cover, but I'm sure people do it. There must be whole marketing departments at book publishers devoted to coming up with covers like this.
