Underwear Ad: Spy Cam In Guy’s Bedroom

The new line of retro underwear from Aussiebum, 100% ribbed cotton old school style. Watch the sexy male model – being spied on by his girlfriend – lounging at home watching TV, changing his clothes and walking around in nothing but underwear. It’s all about the bulge, I mean, the underwear. Oh, it talks about human behaviour on spying as well, quite educational right?

A Children’s Book About Mommy’s Plastic Surgery

mother plastic surgery children's book

A new picture book about plastic surgery aims to explain why mom is getting a flatter tummy and a ‘prettier’ nose.”My Beautiful Mommy” (Big Tent Books) is available this Mother’s Day. It features a perky mother explaining to her child why she’s having cosmetic surgery (a nose job and tummy tuck). Naturally, it has a happy ending: mommy winds up “even more” beautiful than before, and her daughter is thrilled.

Some, upon reading the manuscript with their son, find it useful. Newsweek reports “Since February, when she had the surgery, she and [her son] have read the book a half dozen times, and she says it helped him feel excited rather than scared. “I didn’t want him to think [the surgery] was because I was hurting. It was to make me feel good,” she says.”

“That message seems to have gotten through. Instead of being uncomfortable about the surgery, Acosta says her son actually spoke up about it at a big party. “Did you see her new belly button? It’s so pretty!” he said of his mom. “I think he was proud,” she says.”

PA/IN/HK: A Photography Exhibition by PA Gillet

PA/IN/HK

Casting an unconventional eye on the futile things in life – that’s what makes Pierre-Arnaud Gillet tick. Seen through his lens, the invisible becomes outstanding and the insignificant, sublime. The floor-markings are transformed into part-painting, part-raw material, part-photographic pictures. An astonishing representation of an unsuspected reality that P-A Gillet’s precise eye composes through the lens, thus breathing new life into these once hidden treasures. This photography series has been realised in April 2006 in Hong Kong.

From: May 22 to June 15 2008

Location: Kapok Gallery, G/F 9 Dragon Road, Tin Hau, Hong Kong

We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things

Who can forget Jason Mraz’s Geek in the Pink and Wordplay? His up coming album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things is scheduled for release on May 20. The video above is video of “I’m Yours,” one of his new singles from his upcoming album.

In the interview with NewNowNext he talked about his kooky video blog, his collabo with Colbie Caillat and his love for his many gay friends.

Here’s an excerpt:

Why the decision to release three EPs? (WE SING came out March 18th; WE DANCE came out April 15th; and WE STEAL THINGS will be available as part of the iTunes album bundle.)

It’s been so long since I’ve put anything out; I spent the last year-and-a- half just work-shopping the sounds in coffee shops and everything. And I promised a lot of people I was going to make an acoustic project next – and when I came home from London, I had my funkiest album yet. And I thought, OK, I guess an acoustic album would be next.

Then I came up with the idea of the three EPs, and that gave me the opportunity to release the album songs in a stripped-down, raw format … And I just thought it would be fun – to reintroduce ourselves to the world. ‘Cause I hear so much from the fans, We just like it when it’s just you – just you and Toca. And I do too; I love that. Because I spent a lot of my year as an acoustic duo and a funky band; I divided it up equally. It’s a sort of way to divide up this album, to have an acoustic version and a dance-able version.

Kelly Rowland comes back with “Comeback” (Full Video)

Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland hasn’t been quite successful on her own. Like her friend Michelle Williams, (who went on and did gospels), she didn’t want to do something too similar with Beyonce. Williams did well, but not Rowland. Now Rowland is trying to hit the music scene again with her new song Comeback and it’s good. She finally faced the fact that she needs to do something main stream and similar to Beyonce in order to establish her solo career. People are going to say “That’s so Beyonce!” And Rowland will give them a “So what? I’m hot” attitude. My thoughts? Hot chocolate!

Hermès fall/winter 2008: Herb Tea with a Twist

I can feel the stress of Veronique Nichanian every season when I look at Hermès male line. When compared to its other half, “bad boy” Jean Paul Gaultier, Nichanian is like the big sister who can’t cross the line especially because Hermès has got to remain classy. Even she can use the world’s most extortionate fabrics and materials, Nichanian needs to remain discreet and subtle in her design concept. That’s why you need to look at Hermès design from a another perspective. For instance, this season Nichanian put her creativity in unconventional duos like dark and vibrant colours, raw material and detailed cutting…etc. As if she is taking Jean Paul Gaultier on.

Nichanian intelligently made the male line of Hermès look as if they’re very comfortable, with a pinch of creativity. In case this does not come out as legendary, it would at least work as a fashion “herbal tea”, providing homeopathic stress relief for the fashion audience. I noticed that there are some uneven collar shirts, showing a minor characteristic of a rebellious boy perhaps, or maybe she’s trying to create gentleman with a twist.

Trendpick: Shearling Chic: Shearling ching’s big coats is a new come back, becoming fall/winter’s new love. Hermès, however, focuses on the collar of shearling, laying low yet following the trend.
