Sabine is a YouTube user who, during a visit to family living in South Korea in April of this year, was given a DVD by a man and a woman claiming to be North Korean “defectors”, and was asked to translate the film so it could be posted on the internet and reach a wider audience. What the DVD turned out to be was something much more than Sabine, or anyone else, probably would’ve imagined, and something that certainly has found a widespread audience on the internet over the last month or so – it was a film called “PROPAGANDA”, a documentary about capitalism, imperialism, mass manipulation of western culture for the purpose of commodification, and how it permeates every aspect of the lives of blissfully ignorant, borderline zombie masses.
And jesus, is it on the fucking money.
I found the parts about Kim Kardashian Paris Hilton Hilarious. I found the part about Michael Jackson Disturbing.
Having scraped out every last bit of coconut oil, it was time to whip up a replacement. A gallon-sized Costco tub is better for hand access but not so much for a tiny bathroom. Which brings us to a perfectly good invention: green lotion. Something that’s totally awesome for your skin.
You might remember green-tea infused oil from this SPF lip balm. I love this stuff. You get the benefits of coconut oil and green tea all in one. Coconut oil hydrates without clogging pores, and green tea can actually reverse sun damage. Whipping it makes a nice frothy texture that’s easier to apply and feels less greasy (if that bothers you). And did I mention that it’s green? No it won’t turn your skin green, but it does make me smile every time I see it.
These beguiling geometric figures are the work of Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist Tom Beddard, aka subBlue. Although it looks like you could reach out and touch them, they’re three-dimensional models digitally rendered by Beddard’s formulaic methods. Beddard calls them Fabergé Fractals because their incredibly intricate and dazzling patterns are ornate like jewel-encrusted Fabergé eggs.
Beddard describes his work:
"The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.
"The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural ‘resonances’ of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation."
