Kardashian Xmas Card has Nothing to do With Xmas…and no North West?

20131203-121610.jpg

This is the stupidest Christmas card we’ve ever seen! The Kardashians under the brilliant leadership of Kris Jenner, have managed to put out one hell of a douche bag greeting card.

The Kardashians card serves no purpose. It doesn’t even have a Xmas theme! Not to mention, newcomer baby North West isn’t even on the card with the rest of her family.

The card was paid for by E!s Keeping up With the Kardashians, which explains why some people are missing from the card.

However, since the card was shot by the worlds most famous photographer David LaChapelle, it’s receiving both extreme praise and also extreme scrutiny. LaChapelle has photographed all the A List celebs and is also known to use loads of Illuminati images. Many believe that when a star is finally shot by the photographer, it’s their public admittance of joining the secret society.

The scenery and background of the card actually looks like the family is at a casino, with cash money flowing all around them. Kim, Kylie and Kendall are posed sexy with some sort of masks on their head, and there’s naked mannequins and what looks like a painting of a naked woman holding a child.

I’m getting bored just writing this…

But anyways, Khloe, Kourtney and momager Kris appear on the other end of the card. Khloe, with little Mason next to her, Kourtney holding baby Penelope and Kris posing like the sexy, newly single mogul she is.

But where’s baby North West? Isn’t this the perfect debut for the little ones first Christmas?

None of the Kardash men appear in the card… Not even King Yeezus. (smart move Kanye.). Well… Actually, he sort of does appear; and is one of the only images that relates to Jesus and Christmas.

However, Bruce Jenner did make the card. But stands trapped in some sort of tube, signifying he and Kris’ recent split.

Oh, and Lamar’s spirit is in the photo…in the form of magazine covers.

Downtown Symbolism Comes Alive at Artist vs Architect

On Nov.14, Dallas’ One Arts Plaza was a stunning collage of innovative art and conversational architecture that united artists and attendees from all over the metroplex and beyond. Participating sponsors included Fiat, Veev, Matthew Shelley Photography and Patron Magazine to name a few.

The featured artists and architects were paired off by a panel of experts in the two fields and creatively “dueled it out” via canvases, sculptures, oil paintings, photography and other avenues of superb and  virtuous expression.

Upon review of all submissions, the  12  pairs of artists and architects were given two themes and were to  create a collaborative piece and an individual piece of work. A third artistic piece was optional for all contestants.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity and pleasure of bidding via silent auction on all of the created works. Additionally a select few pieces, were placed in a live auction for bid during the evening. All proceeds from the auction were donated to a chosen charity beneficiary.

After hours of awe-inspiring artwork, mingling,  libations and high energy music, topped off with the beautiful host and charity enthusiast Leeanne Locken as MC for the evening, the voting was declared over and the winning pairs were announced. 

Congratulations to the 2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will. This piece is called Grove Avenue NO.22 —

What intrigued us so much about all the collaborations of the contest was how well the artists worked together. Was everyone able to work well with their partners? Were they able to find common ground on their creations? Winners Ali Golzad and Meredith Quigley were surely able to.

“From the start when we met it was very clear that our understanding of our roles as individuals living on this planet was very close. which made it easy for us to decide early on
what type of project we wanted to work on,” said Golzad. “With this piece we just wanted to tell the story of many people who live in the shadows of the big corporations and government, working hard every day towards their dreams.”

Congratulations were soon due to the  2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will and the collaborative winners artist Ali Golzad & architect Meredith Quigley from OMNIPLAN. Special recognition went to Hai Nguyen for being pour artist favorite of the night.

At this point, I also came up with the name of my piece, “Dallas 12 & 4”. These numbers refer back to the shadow-lines at certain times of the day in the 3-D model, 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. I thought at these moments, that the shadow-lines were the most interesting as they created new relationships between building planes and also surfaced as new objects within my diagram. In order to create a hierarchy within the model, I used color to better distinguish the two times of day,” explained Amador Saucedo of his 3-D piece.

We wanted to incorporate both structural elements and emotional elements in a way that would delightfully surprise people… a piece that looked nothing like an architectural design, nor a piece of photographic art. Sean & I both wanted it to be a whimsical, fun, yet aesthetically pleasing and functional design, proving the truth that “Less Is More,”

said photographer Carolyn Collins about her collab piece with artist Sean O’Brien.

New Dallas resident Andrew Cortez,

“was fascinated by the sprawling urban fabric and the vast network of interconnected roads that weave throughout the metro. This was the story I wanted to tell with my piece. I wanted to abstractly share a journey through the city, experiencing the vibrant life and energy within it, and the spontaneous moments that occur when a new piece of it is discovered.”

Cortez’s piece Anxious Awakening reminds us of the abstract vivid-ness of Deep Ellum, a sector of Dallas that the artist has yet to explore, but coincidentally has heard a lot about.

“What inspires my art and design, specifically for 4000, was to see how far you can push the formal and physical limits of common items by adding a simple “connector.” In this case the item was 4000 binder clips and the “connector” was 70 pieces of thin piano wire,” informed Sean O’Brien.

“Most of the time when people see it they don’t realize that it’s binder clips…and when they do, the reaction is mixed. Some people are confused, and others laugh but I think everyone is intrigued.
Personally as a designer, I like to incorporate humor into my work when I can. This happened to be the perfect storm of poetic form and irony, ” he added.

The  silent and live auction raised over $10K for Family Compass (formerly known as Child Abuse Prevention Center.)

Kanye Charged With Felony Attempted Robbery After Aasault

Why TMZ Kanye? Anybody but TMZ!

Once again ‘Ye’s temper got the best of him as he bumrushed a TMZ photographer , who was tad too aggressive and asking the rapper too many questions.

The incident happened on Friday around 2pm outside of LAX airport, Yeezy went off and basically wrestled a paparazzi down to the ground, all the while yelling at the man.

Paramedics soon arrived and tended to the shaken and scratched up cameraman. The man was treated at a nearby hospital and now an investigation has ensued.

And yes, the photographer is pressing charges. In fact,  law enforcement has labeled the case a felony attempted robbery — not an assault — apparently because Kanye may have been trying to swipe the paparazzo’s camcorder.

Come on Yeezus, Harvey Levin is an ex- Los Angeles attorney and can make anything happen.

POP POWER COUPLE GETS SUED BY PHOTOGRAPHER

Photographer Luis Santana, 26, is seeking the money to replace a $3,000 camera that was busted and stolen; to pay for the photos he lost; and to recompense him for his injuries and emotional distress, said his attorney, Paul Kimsey.

The lawsuit, filed on Dec.2, is based on a May 6 occurrence as Chris Brown and Rihanna commemorated Brown’s 19th birthday at Vintage Ultra Lounge in St. Petersburg. The club and three alleged aggressors also are named as defendants in the suit.

Santana took at least one picture of the couple through an open window of their limo, Kimsey said. Then bodyguards working for Chris Brown, Rihanna and Vintage Ultra Lounge chased Santana, forced him to the ground and stole his camera, breaking it in the process, according to Kimsey.

“This is America. It’s called the First Amendment. If you’re in public, you’re subject to being photographed,” Kimsey said. “Everyone is, celebrity or not.”
