The Last King of Scotland (2006)

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE - Forest Whitaker The buzz has been really great and I like Forest Whitaker. The story is about a newly graduated young doctor, Nicolas from Scotland, who goes to Uganda in 1970s hoping that he can offer his help to the Ugandan people. Instead of serving the poor, he mets the charismatic Uganda dictator Idi Amin and his life is forever changed. I have decided that Forest Whitaker has an Oscar worthy performance as 'Idi Amin Dada. It is almost possible to forget that he is acting. The movie has a documentary visual style that captures the energy and exuberance of a young nation in the throes of optimism and works it into a foreboding frenzy. A must see!! I highly recommend.

I'll never forget the trill the first time I saw a top hat appear suddenly from its flat black saucer. But that feeling pales in comparison to the rush of excitement I experience when I saw what Marlene Dietrich and Anouk Aimée could do with this elegant silky crown.

  • His is what I had in mind.

The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art, theater and graphic design. Mostly anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals.

Yeah, you're doing your art, or thinking about doing your art, or hoping you'll have time and money to make art (or music), and then someone like Anat Ben-David pops up on your desktop, flowing easily with a ocean of possibilities. Anat Ben-David works in video, performance, installation, text, paint, sculpture, and probably many other forms I'm too busy to mention. It's her 2008 work that caught my eye, an imaginary, international, all girl, group band. The band members are multicultural /multilingual and fictional, Anat performs all the band members by duplicating her image. I loved all of it, and still want more. About Anat Ben-David latest work www.yippieyeah.co.uk/anat Anat Ben-David is part of an endangered species of true Renaissance artists, educated from a young age as dancer and painter in the UK and Israel, growing up to become a mover and shaker in Jerusalems underground scene, then choosing performance art as a weapon of mass distraction incorporating and integrating video, theatre and plastic art into a gesamtkunstwerk that challenged audiences and peers in a scene too tiny and puny for her artistic vision. Next stop London! Drawing from a range of classical avant-garde traditions - painting to performance to cabaret - Anat Ben-Davids incarnation as neo-pop diva was born out of her not-entirely PC meditation on pop and Fascism, the Popaganda project. Ben-David nobly tributes modernist art movements like Dada and Futurism while at the same time mobilising their aesthetics and ideas to create an artistic discourse walking on a tightrope: welding utopian modernist rallying cries to the individual yet authoritarian stage persona, and applying mass marketing sensibilities not in the service of capital, but of autonomous, empowered, defiant art-for-its-own-sake. Ben-David channels dormant, fading roars from a century back, placing them in the contemporary arena thus opening yet another conceptual border-crossing portal. Applied musically, her approach results in a gnarly, grrly beast that lends contemporary electro-femdom an aroma of timelessness, an instinctive grasp of wider historical context and a mastery of entertainment erected on a will to power. Avi Pitchon (Vice Magazine, Terrorizer, The Wire)

I love the way they appear to float over my feet, like an incomplete drawing of wingtip oxford shoes- a perfect translation of Da Da and Surrealist ideas and aesthetics to fashion. Merit Oppenheim would have to certainly approve. Art History aside, they are exceptionally comfortable and the T-strap hits the width of my foot in the best possible places w/ the least amount of shifting, no blisters yet! Find them in white too, even better!

Les Georges Leningrad is not for everyone, but I don't care, sure it's on the difficult listing cannel, but so is the The Residents record (Eskimo) that inspired "Sur Les Traces de Black Eskimo". I've only seen Les Georges Leningrad twice, and after the first 10 minutes of (what the f*ck is this), I feel in love with them and wanted to run away and join their circus.
