Photoshop as Art

I think the time is ripe to add photoshopping to the traditional family of visual arts. And this particular picture is proof that Photoshop arists do indeed have a hard time until they reach this kind of level. (Here is another set from the same guy.)


Seems like you are still watching, so I am carrying on. I cannot wait to hear your comments, but, of course, please feel free to digest first.

Link to the Past

This is connected to the previous post in a sad way.

World War II Propaganda Posters

Although you won't find this particular picture there, I find this by country WW II propaganda poster collection quite wikid.

Soccer Balls Are Not Edible

According to the site referred to in the previous post, other images have emerged in the lead-up to the World Cup that paint a similar picture. Perhaps the most famous is the graffiti done by Brazilian Paulo Ito on a São Paulo schoolhouse. And here is another image that is rather telling too.

Games and Reality

Even though according to this site this photo was not taken at the World Cup (as some people on Facebook have claimed), I think it illustrates extremely well the source of the tensions that are so palpable around the 2014 games.

Fountain of Age

Wishing my old buddy Dr Blazej all the best for his 40's with a good old contest worth 1000 (.com)

Tribute to Graffiti

Khm, khm, some real good wall (and pavement) art here.  

Slayer – War Ensemble (Ukulele cover)

Yeah, this guy knows something about Slayer and benjos, and me I like heavy metal too (FYI).

World Cup: What to Drink

And here is what to drink.

World Cup: What to Expect

BTW re: World Cup: here is what to expect while you start watching (especially in England).

Gggggrrrrr, I’m gonna eat these guys

They get it from the old man. But why is he not at the World Cup?
