Disney Joy Division t-shirt?

Disney Mickey Mouse Joy Division t-shirt
Weird news of the day: Disney is actually selling a Mickey Mouse t-shirt inspired by Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” album, via their Disney Store. Are they pandering to hipster parents at the cost of their brand image? Is there a negative to associating Mickey with a band, whose name is a reference to sex slaves in concentration camps, and a lead singer who committed suicide? The shirts have all sold out.

    They also have one modeled after Iron Maiden, with Animal on drums.

    the merger of the two by Disney is totally kooky idea but aesthetically…I think its beautiful?!

    I think pandering to hipsters would be accurate. It’s just like every single play on words that have been done with the iconic Black Flag logo.

    forget Disney’s reputation (they have a horrible one), what about Joy Division? This trend of making a profit by commercializing old bands because they are seen as ‘edgy’, is getting annoying.

Secret Studio Hidden Beneath Overpass by Designer Fernando Abellanas

Designer Fernando Abellanas has constructed a tiny studio beneath a busy overpass in Spain. Complete with movable walls, light furnishings and a hand crank that transports the structure along two metal rails, the micro-dwelling hangs high above the ground in a manner reminiscent to the kind of secret hideaway or fort one might have as a child. See more images by Jose Manuel Pedrajas below!
