I’ve been in bed sick for about a handful of days so this week’s pick is a little late. After catching up on the latest horrendiously bad Christian rock band I found an equally disturbing video of Kirsten Dunst directed by McG and produced by Takashi Murakami entitled, Akihabara Majokko Princess. Is it just me or does this video feel very similar to Dunst’s performance for the end credits of Bring it On but set in Japan? There are even cheerleaders at one point! Is this just a pop culture reference, a sign of a lack of imagination when it comes to casting, poor acting, or all of the above ?
On this week’s roundup I discovered dresses that are made for cats, Pruned gave their plans for a 2118 Chicago winter Olympics, and I found Chicago Gangsters’ badass album cover for Gangsterlove. If you haven’t checked it out yet go see Philip von Zweck: The Fortieth Anniversary of the First Anniversary in May ’68 at Threewalls before it closes this Saturday. Have a good weekend.
Chicago Gangsters = Badass album cover.

I don’t feel so good about the full Kirsten Dunst, Murakami thing.
Just received an email from my mom. She just got the latest J Crew catalog in the mail and asked “Where are the female artists.” Good point.
IDLM has some cool work and an interview with Shin Murayama. Sort of Hannibal Lecter meets Sports Chalet.
