Friends I’ll Never Meet: Manuel Solano

August 30, 2010

  All artwork @ Manuel Solano Manuel Solano is a 23 year old artist from Mexico City. He makes creepy fan art and videos of himself putting stuff up his ass, which are gross but also cool. The first artwork I saw by Manuel was a fan drawing of the band Salem, where the two guy members are having butt sex [above]. I was both disturbed and aroused. Later I discovered that a piece of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fan art…

Objects of Desire

August 27, 2010

Pic @ The Saudis“I’ve been having this reoccurring nightmare,” says Hamilton, pacing back and forth across his kitchen in an awkward lurch. He has dark, sunken eyes and a long beaky nose, the combination of which makes him look like a deformed bird. “It’s horrible,” he says. “I wake up in a cold sweat almost every night.” “What’s the dream about?” “Well it starts with me in bed, and I can sense there’s an intruder in my apartment. So I…

There’s a half eaten sandwich withering away next to the air conditioner, now half its original size. Except for a couple rickety wooden chairs, the…

In Hindsight

August 12, 2010

  Pic @ Slutever As told by someone else: This is a story I would not tell you when I was your girlfriend because I knew it would mean the end of us. We’d been together for a long time, then you started liking that other person, the one whose name I can’t say out loud. At first I thought I could change myself—to learn to possess whatever special thing it was this other person possessed—but after a while of…

Fuck You, Fashion

August 2, 2010

  Ever since teen angst was commercialized in the 50s, conscious kids have invented ways to use their appearance as ideological ammunition. This article isn’t about Bebo mall-goths (I call them moths) or college drop-ins in Che Guevara shirts. We’re talking about clothing choices that invented the future rather than just bastardizing the past (or at least bastardized it so good that it became indistinguishable from the future–headfuck). And if you think fashion is empty and can’t change the world,…
