Mother issues

28 Mar

Simon Parkes, the Labour Councillor from Whitby stated today that his ‘real’ mother is a 9ft green alien. This is a discription from his first expereince with his mother:

‘Two green stick things came in. I was aware of some movement over my head. I thought, ‘they’re not mummy’s hands, mummy’s hands are pink’. I was looking straight into its face. It enters my mind through my eyes and it sends a message down my optic nerve into my brain. It says ‘I am your real mother, I am your more important mother’.’

He also said

‘after contracting chicken pox at the age of three, my mother went to work and left me at home to fend for myself when an 8ft “doctor” dressed as a waiter appeared to offer help.’

In this YouTube post he did go on to say that it didn’t and wouldn’t inter fear with his post in Whitby, but I can’t help but feel the people of Whitby may have something to say about that. I don’t mean to be cruel but this guy should seriously asses his relationship with his mother before posting this sort of thing online!

Paul Cadden

Smokescreen: Incredible detail has been captured by the hyperrealist artist Paul Cadden, but his work leaves you wondering whether your eyes have been tricked

Paul Cadden, 47 yo from Scotland prodcues his own brand of hyperrealistic art. These arn’t phohographs!!!! Goes without saying that he’s epic awesome!!

Shades of grey: Cadden was shortlisted as Artist of the Year 2011 and can usually produce about seven works per year which sell at galleries for up to £5,000 each

Altered reality: Hyperrealism was born from the idea of photorealism, which are paintings based on photographs but created in a non-photographic medium

Not all black and white: From a distance Paul Cadden's work looks like a picture. However, a gallery exhibiting his work said seeing the originals up close reveals the extent of the drawing detail

Spare £20

12 Mar

Ever thought that your food needs more sparkle? Well The Deli Garage obviously thought so too. They’ve invented some lovely weird edible food spray can. You can choose from metallic gold, silver, blue or red. If I have £20 hanging about it’d be buying a can now! Om nom nom (sort of)

How did I miss this?

September 15, 2011. The day the Gorden Ramsay’s Dwarf Porn lookalike was found dead in a badger set. Weirdest news ever, and I can’t believe I missed it.  RIP Percy Foster, you had a very strange job (although apparently phenomenally well paid!)

Just to cheer away those Monday blues, here’s a bear from Germany, photographed tobogganing on his bottom down the snow. Squeee!
