The project was created by Netherland’s Lindley Warren. The photos here are ones that my friend Jennilee Marigomen contributed to the project. This first one is her favourite (and mine too) – it is the photo for the word, Lost. If you are a photographer, they are currently accepting submissions! Head on over there.

    Ugh. I hate it when designers use graphics to render all the text for a web site. Ever hear of font-family: Garamond? Slow load times. No ability to resize the tiny type. Must be a nightmare to maintain.

    Pretty photos though.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
