Have yourself a freakin’ Dance Party!

Found this micros-site. Don't ask me how, i actually don't know. But it has successfully entertained me for the last 7 minutes so i feel like sharing it, in case you need a 7 minute break. Basically, you create your own dance party with a bumch of crazy fictional and non fictional characters and you choose your music. Simple and a lil awesome.   Here is mine! ----> o (The girl with the teddy bear...see what i did there?? seeeeee?

The Scale of the Universe

So this is a really mind-blowing science micro-site that is as simple as it is interesting. The scale of the Universe simply puts a number of things we know about or heard about, and put is it next to each other, size-wise. We learn that a human egg is smaller than a grain of salt, that the USA is bigger than Pluto, that the Minecraft World is bigger than Neptune and Uranus and that the cluster of Galaxies around us (including ours, is tiny next to other group of galaxies we have observed.... Yeah... mind-blowing how freaking TINY we are. Makes you think of ...

I wanna go to Springfield.

So Universal Studios in Orlando opened a new theme park last week.... The Simpsons themed park. I. Wanna. Go. (not only can you stroll down the streets of Springfield, go to Moe's Tavern, see a Krusty show, but you can also get some of their "edible treats from the likes of Duff Brewery (where the beers do actually taste different from one another) or Krusty Burger, Luigi’s Pizza, the giant pink donut, The Frying Dutchman, Lisa’s Teahouse of Horror and more..." ) ...

Blacklisted M.I.A. Documentary trailer.

M.I.A. hits again. And hits hard. Like the badass version of the corny-ass Beyoncé movie, M.I.A. did her own documentary/ promotional stunt /confession /whatever-you-wanna-call-it movie. Thing is, it is rooted in a very touchy subject since 2001: muslim-based terrorism. See M.I.A. is from Sri Lanka, an island south of India where Singhalses and Tamil have been fighting since 1983. The Tamil Tigers are the armed force of the muslim minority there and are responsible for an enormous number of assassinations, suicide bombing and multiple war crimes... and her ...

Yassin and Human Rights

Warning: this video is extremely graphic and emotionally hard to watch. As 1.6 billion people are about to enter the month of Ramadan, american rapper Yassin Bei, known as Mos Def decided to under-go the procedure that the US military uses to force feed the Guantanamo hunger strike prisonniers. As the whole terrorist problem is a very complex one, i am not posting this a denonciation of the whole american and western world struggle to deal with the middle-age-type-obscurantism menace that has taken form into this so-called islamic extremists. But there is ...

Egypt’s freedom walls

Yesterday, History happened again. In the religious center of the monotheist world, another autocratic leader was taken away from power. Weather it will be for the good of the people and their true revolution, we still don't know as it was once again, the Military that did the coup "in the name of the people"... I am staying hopeful and want to believe that they will conduct democatic elections that will be not only clean but with leaders that truly represent all of Egypt.   While the World keeps it's fingers crossed, the revolution has been written ...

Kid President meets President Obama

Remember Kid President? You know that awesome kid that gave the world a "Pep talk"? Well, last April, he met the ACTUAL gown-up version of himself. And it it adorable. Made me happy just to see it. Wanted to share it just for the happiness it brings. As well as the Pep Talk, as we never hear it enough. By the way, did you know that Kid President, that keeps asking us to dance and have more fun actually has Osteogenesis Imperfecta? Yeah, blew my mind and even though it has nothing to do with his message, it does make it so much more powerful. You go ...

Imagine all the people…

Some ideas are so simple, it makes them great. Like music to calm a rioting country. Literally. Davide Martello is a german pianist that decided to go play free concerts in every capital city in the world. Just him, his grand piano and music. Now last week, he brought is piano in teh middle of Taksim square in Istambul. The reason why you heard of this place is because it has been the center of the violent protest against the Turkish government. A new theater where the people refuse to be taken for fools and to have their freedom stolen from them. The result was ...

Woman, street artist and living in Kabul.

Last week, i took "crashing an event" to a whole other level: the level of twisting your destiny for an hour. One of my girls that works in the swiss national TV station forwarded me an email about a small exhibit organized by a local feminist organisation ( "Terre des Femmes") about this young woman graffiti artist from Afghanistan: Shamsia. Now these words just sounded so magical yet surprising together, i just had to go check out the press event i obviously wasn't invited to. So i did. And i didn't only show up, i was right there, in the front, ...

Music from trash…

This must be the most beautiful story i've heard this entire year. Yes. Brought chills to my soul and water to my mascara. Cateura, Paraguay is a small town that survives on other people's trash. First by sorting it and reselling it, but also in the most beautiful and inspiring way possible: making magic from society's waste. Over there, "people realize that we shouldn't trow away trash carelessly" "well, we shouldn't throw away people either"… Creating musical instrument with garbage and creating a children's orchestra to learn how to dream ...

Here it is, it is now official, The Lady and The Sweatshop now has a sister blog: Dessert For Breakfast! Now let me tell you a few words about this new blog: DfB is a collective of  smart, funky and sexy ladies that share their thoughts and experiences about sex. Basically reacting to the big gap our society STILL has when it comes to real Women Sex Talk. And i'm not only referring to our mothers and political authorities, but really to Reality TV and women's magazines. Enough of this Snooky-Kim K-Paris-Britney vulgarity. And enough of these Cosmo Mags ...

Friday night was MassiveArt, a giant multiple platform art exibit at SAT. I exposed 2 of my photographs along with dozens of other photgraphers, painters, illustrators, animator (2d and 3d) and other types of artists. Among them was a collective called Skin Jackin, a french collective of pencils funky tatoos artists. They basically "paint-tatooed" who ever wanted. Their style is bold, colorsfull, funky and irreverant. Here are some of their "materpieces" (full body art) - skin jackin ...
