Photographer Roger Ballen’s work is quite interesting. At times strange, weird, and alarming, his work reached even more success after he partnered with South African duo Die Antwoord on some of their music videos. Now his new series, “Asylum of the Birds,” is set to debut and this short film gives you a slight insight into the chaotic and insane mind of Ballen. From the YouTube description
To mark the publication of his much-awaited new monograph Asylum of the Birds, photographer Roger Ballen, with director Ben Crossman, has produced this psychologically powerful, unforgettable film that follows Roger into a world synonymous with his photographs, as never before seen on film.
In an interview for the making of “Fatty Boom Boom,” Yolandi Visser, one half of Die Antwoord, told the interviewer, “Mr. Ballen is like, the weirdest person I’ve ever met in my life.” The other half of the group, Ninja, says that he is Ballen’s protege.
So, that should prepare you for what you’re about to watch. It seems like normal photographer stuff at first, but then it gets…interesting.
People have been obsessed with Frozen since it came out and I feel like the only person in the world who just wasn’t that impressed by it.
Thankfully, this Honest Trailer makes me feel better about my opinion. Also, hehe, “happy now Jezebel?”
Starting out with talking about film, Michael aka Vsauce segues into the resolution of the eye and what we see.
Warning: At one point in this video, you will become grossly aware of your nose being in your line of vision. I can’t stop staring at mine now and I think I might be going cross-eyed.
Someone missed the essential “beans” portion in that English breakfast.
What did you have for breakfast this morning? I had hard-boiled eggs, a banana, and almond flour pancakes, because I’m trying to be healthy and stuff. If I had my choice, though, I’d go the Hawaiian route and eat Spam, eggs, and rice every single day. Mmmm…Spam.
With the legalization of good old Mary Jane in Colorado, chances are that some people are going to take that opportunity to get some late night munchies after smoking a bowl. And most of us understand how unbelievably delicious a Cheesy Gordita Crunch from Taco Bell is after smoking a bowl.
But Colorado also wants you to know that driving under the influence of marijuana is still a no-go in the state, no matter what you need to do and these ads from the Colorado Department of Transportation not only poke fun at stoners, but also serve as a good warning.. So stay sober while driving, my friends and if you get the munchies, order a pizza.
Also, if you don’t smoke and live in Colorado, perhaps it’s time to start a delivery business where you bring people Taco Bell. Or other fast food that they’re craving. YOU’RE SITTING ON A GOLD MINE.
