Thanks YouWorkForThem! Pt. 1

The amazing folks over at YouWorkForThem just sent me over a bundle of goodies! The Interpretation is a beautifully abstract short film by Michael Paul Young (visuals) and Michael Cina (sound). It’s kind of like a deep sea episode of Planet Earth but all the creatures have been reduced to the essence of their form; a fish – a single stroke. The score is a mix of minimal electronic and natural ambiance and, when combined with the visuals, the mood is not unlike the Jaguar Shark scene in The Life Aquatic.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
