Watch this man paint something amazing

On October 22, 2016, at a Toledo Walleye hockey game in Toledo, Ohio, artist Joe Everson kicked off the game by painting what appeared to be random blotches of blue on a black canvas, as he sang The Star Spangled Banner.

Watch what happened . . . .

The painting, of course, is the famous “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima,” of United States soldiers raising the American flag during World War II.

Here’s the YouTube video:

Singer wears MAGA gown to Grammy; sales of her album go through the roof

Don’t let the MSM con you that the American people don’t support President Trump.

Here’s an indicator of just how popular he is.

A singer of whom I — and probably you, too — had never heard has the guts to buck Hellywood’s zombie group-think by wearing a patriotic red, white and blue gown with the words “Make America Great Again” and “Trump” at last night’s Grammy Awards.

Her name is Joy Villa, 25.

Within hours of her Grammy red carpet appearance, Villa’s 2014 album, “I Make the Static,” went from #2,300 to #1 on Amazon.com, with 98% of reviews giving her album a maximum 5-star rating.

Villa told Fox News:

“I am 100 percent a Trump supporter. I believe in his message, I believe he will run this country like he runs his life, successfully. I stand as a proud American and I stand for a unified America that is tolerant of each other no matter who we voted for. I stand behind our President because that’s the American thing to do. I believe in love, above all.”

The singer said on Instagram:

“Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree.”

But Villa and her gown received vicious, hate messages from the always-tolerant Left. Below is a sample, beginning with a one-word message, “Die,” from @kevinrizzi:

Andre Soriano, the designer of Villa’s gown, said on Instagram the gown is a “tribute [to] OUR President Of The United States Of America” adding the hashtag #MAGA.

Soriano is an immigrant from the Philippines. A tolerant Progressive named David X Lodger wrote this on Soriano’s Facebook page:

 Wow Andre Soriano, you dumb as fuck, ain’t ya… if you love America so much – go back to the Philippines where Trump thinks you belong…. self-hating dumbass

To which Soriano gave this response:

Peace be with you.

I tried to get on Soriano’s website http://www.andresoriano.com/, but kept getting a “Service Unavailable” message, most likely because the website crashed from the sheer volume of people trying to access it.

Designer Obana showcases new line of homeless menswear

Sam Reed reports for Pret-a-Porter that Daisuke Obana, designer of Japanese menswear label N. Hoolywood, sparked quite the debate on Feb. 1, 2017 with his homeless youth-inspired fall 2017 collection at New York Men’s Fashion Week.

daisuke-obanas-homeless-collection-for-men

Some critics, as well as homeless advocates, call the collection, “tasteless,” “tone-deaf” and “insensitive”. As an example, Fashionista‘s Steve Dool wrote in his review that Obana’s vision was “either condescending, ignorant, almost inconceivably out of touch or some hellish combination of all three,” and that Obana’s collection was “like a fetishized version of homelessness. The clothes individually were luxurious and expensive. … The N. Hoolywood homeless man is a sanitized, polished type of homeless.”

Others, however, went all SJW, seeing great profundity in the homeless menswear collection. One of Obana’s admirers is The New York Times‘ Guy Trebay, who waxed eloquent, pointing out “that the glass of fashion is mostly a reflective device” and that Obana’s homeless menswear “served as a reminder of an often invisible population — one that, in light of recent studies showing that in almost no place in the United States can a person working a 40-hour week at minimum wage afford a one-bedroom apartment at fair market rent, seems destined to increase.”

Obana told Hype Beast ahead of his show that he was inspired when he “witnessed the ‘gutter punk’ subculture during my travels through America,” and was impressed by their “inventiveness,” and how a plastic bag can be used to carry possessions as well as serving as a waterproof shoe covering when it rains. To emphasize the homeless nature of his new line of menswear, street-cast models were told to hit the catwalk with their eyes downcast with, as NYT‘s Trebay put it, wear “dazed expressions that made some look as though they had forgotten to take their meds.”

Oddly, although he designs menswear, Obana wears only T- and sweat-shirts.

Obana’s N. Hoolywood collection, however, isn’t cheap. Priced from about $55 to $500, the menswear sells online at East Dane, Yoox and other retailers.

Buyers of the N. Hoolywood line should wear a sign on their back:

Kick me. I’m a Useful Idiot

The beast in Disney’s new ‘Beauty & the Beast’ is Baphomet

Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740.

The story is so well known, there’s hardly the need for me to relate it. But if you don’t know, here’s a synopsis:

A wealthy widowed merchant has several children, the youngest and his favorite is Beauty (or Belle, in French), who is lovely, loves books, and pure of heart.

One day, the merchant got lost in a forest during a storm. Seeking shelter, he entered a palace with a table laden with food and drinks, but empty of people. Knowing that Beauty loves roses, the merchant plucked a rose from the palace’s garden to bring home to his daughter. A hideous beast appears and tells the merchant he must die for stealing the rose after availing himself of the beast’s generous hospitality. The merchant begs for his life and tells Beast that he had only picked the rose as a gift for his youngest daughter. The Beast agrees to let the man go, but only if the merchant or one of his daughters returns.

Upon the merchant’s return home, Beauty valiantly goes to the palace, where Beast lavishes finery on her and her every need met by invisible servants. Every night, Beast asks Beauty to marry him, but Beauty declines.

After months, Beast allows homesick Beauty to visit her family, on the condition that she’ll return after a week. Beauty agrees, but reneges on her promise.

One day, Beauty sees in the magic mirror Beast had given her that Beast is very ill. She quickly returns to the palace, to find Beast dying. Beauty weeps over Beast, saying that she loves him. Beast is transformed into the handsome prince in Beauty’s dreams. The Prince tells her that a vindictive fairy  had transformed him into a hideous beast, and that the curse would be broken only when he, despite his beastly ugliness, finds true love. He and Beauty are married and they live happily ever after.

This morning, while surfing the web, I came across the trailer of Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast, coming to movie theaters on March 17.

The trailer begins with an old man (Beauty’s father) running in the woods, being chased by something. The man trips and falls.

At the 0:27 mark, whoever or whatever was chasing him stands over the man, casting its shadow.

My skin crawled, and alarm bells started ringing in my head . . . .

The shadow of the Beast has HORNS.

Here’s the trailer:

Since when is the Beast of “Beauty and the Beast” a goat-man with horns?

2017-disneys-beauty-and-the-beast

Here are previous versions of Beast, none of which is a goat-man with horns:

beauty-and-the-beast-by-warwick-goblebeauty-and-the-beast-by-walter-cranebeauty-and-the-beast-tv-series-with-ron-perlman
In 1991, the beast in Disney’s animation (cartoon) “Beauty and the Beast” movie began sprouting tiny horns that resemble more like tufts of hair. beauty-and-the-beast-1991-disney-animation

In the 19th century, Eliphas Levi drew the Baphomet as a Sabbatic Goat, a humanoid with a goat’s face, horns, and legs. Today, the Baphomet is widely used as a symbol of Satan, as in this statue (below) erected by the Satanic Temple last year somewhere in Detroit, Michigan. (See “Detroit goes to the devil“)

Satan statue in Detroit, Michigan. See "Detroit goes to the devil".

Below are Levi’s Baphomet and Disney’s 2017 Beast:

Baphomet is 2017 Disney's Beast

The message of Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie is this:

The Devil is just misunderstood! He just wants your love! The Devil loves you and wants to give you riches and finery. All you gotta do is tell him you love him, and he’ll turn into a handsome prince, and you’ll live happily ever after.

God help us.

An Angry Libtard: Shia LaBeouf arrested at his anti-Trump art installation

Actor Shia LaBeouf started this “performance art”stunt called, “He Will Not Divide Us.” From their web site:

“Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.

Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.”

So much butt hurt in Shia’s heart that he got arrested, live, in front of his stunt. It’s going to be a LOOOOOONG four years for libtards.

From CNN: Actor and performance artist Shia LaBeouf has been charged with misdemeanor assault and a harassment violation after getting in a scuffle during a rally against Donald Trump early Thursday morning, according to New York Police Department spokesman Sgt. Thomas Antonetti.

LaBeouf was arrested and has been released, according to Det. Christopher Pisano.

LaBeouf and a 25-year-old anti-Trump protester got into a verbal exchange in front of the Museum of the Moving Image, and then police say LaBeouf pulled on the man’s scarf, scratching his face while doing so, according to Antonetti.  CNN is attempting to reach out to LaBeouf’s representatives.

LaBeouf is planning to protest President Trump for the next four years with an art exhibit that will run continuously outside the museum.

The installation consists of a white wall with the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” on it and a camera beneath the words. LaBeouf has invited the public to participate by saying the phrase into the camera, which streams live. The arrest itself appeared to be caught on the live-stream.

Pajama Boy Approved: Bernie Sanders inspires menswear in Balenciaga’s latest collection to hit the runway

sanders-fashion

sanders-fashion2sanders-fashion3sanders-fashion4

From Daily Mail: None of the US presidential candidates this year were exactly known for their fashion sense, but one has emerged as a clear style muse for a high-end designer. Whether it was his politics or his supporters’ rally style, Bernie Sanders nspired Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia’s latest collection, which he showed at Paris Men’s Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The designer sent models down the runway in jackets, sweaters, and blankets baring the Balenciaga name printed to look suspiciously like Bernie’s logo.

At first look, several outfits that came down the catwalk seemed to be adorned with actual Bernie merchandise. Upon closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that Gvasalia reworked the red, white, and blue underlined logo from his campaign to say Balenciaga instead. On some pieces, he also included the year — 2017.

Besides paying homage to his campaign logo, the styling of some of the collection seems to reference Bernie’s as well.

One model wore a seemingly oversized, ill-fitting blue suit, while others wore their Bernie sweaters and jackets over button-downs. A few looked like ‘Bernie Bros’, teaming their Bernie/Balenciaga merch with athletic sneakers and hoodies. Several of the men also rocked nail art with the logo on their fingers, and there were hidden pins that also had the design.

And while it is unclear whether the political pieces will sell, Twitter users who have spotted the collection certainly seem intrigued. ‘This is every millennials fashion dream, and I’m basking in it,’ writer Laurise McMillian tweeted.

‘Balenciaga x Bernie Sanders. Sign. Me. Up,’ wrote one man. Another joked: ‘Who would’ve thought that Balenciaga x Bernie Sanders would be the hottest collab of the year?’

Rick Owens’ insane menswear at Paris Fashion Week

Richard Saturnino Owens, known as Rick Owens, 55, is an American fashion designer from Porterville, California.

He is married to a demonic-looking woman named Michele Lamy who is his “muse”.

Rick Owens

The following are some of Owens’ menswear seen at the 2017 Paris Fashion Week:

rick-owens-mens-wear-at-2017-paris-mens-fashion-week

Reporting for Fashion Times on Jan. 22, 2017, Jayne Mountford writes that Rick Owens has been called “the godfather of brutal chic” and that “In his show notes Rick Owens asks some challenging questions and describes eloquently what his collection is all about”:

“Change can be ominous but isn’t evolution inevitable? Do we really expect to live forever? or might we gracefully go the way of the dinosaur?

Balancing control and collapse is what I’ve built my aesthetic on —- discipline versus indulgence, immortality versus its defeat, architecture versus wilderness.

Fashion’s evolution has expressed ideals of beauty through exaggeration like stretch jeans, stilettos, bustles and panniers. I’ve used volume at the pelvis to construct the effect I think panniers were intended for.

Shapes in thick cotton moleskins and wool suiting are tight and controlled at the top, gradually expanding at the hips to drag and melt tree trunk-like into the ground, shearlings are the simplest of shapes, or twisted and draped into cascading blobs. Bombers are in pirarucu, a Brazilian eco-friendly fish hide with prehistoric-looking scales. Parkas are cut in falling apart mohair or black suburban nylon, twisted and stretched to the floor. Looks are anchored by Adidas pro model shell toes.”

For the 2015 Paris Fashion Week, Owens debuted a line of men’s wear that are dresses with peep-hole cut-outs exposing the genitalia. See my post, “New menswear is a dress with a cutout exposing your penis“.
