So here’s the deal: There is just so much negativity all around us these days, have you noticed? It’s infesting the internet, it’s taking over the big screen, it’s cutting you off, it’s showing up on your bank statement, it’s staining your new shirt, it’s breathing down your neck, it’s not giving you a vacation, it’s talking behind your back, it’s stuffing you in a locker, it’s cheating on you, it’s charging you more, it’s giving you less, and it’s making you miserable!

Twittering

I finally setup a Twitterfeed so now you can get notified of any Booooooom updates via Twitter! This is the internet equivalent of us becoming best friends! If you want to Tweet about Booooooom that would be awesome!

Thank You Ophelia!

A couple packages showed up at my door step the other day and I was delighted to see that they were both from Ophelia Chong. I was pretty excited! I tore open carefully unsealed the envelope, and inside was this little box with a familiar shape on it.

Michelle Blade

In an effort to feature more painters on the site here’s some paintings by Californian, Michelle Blade. I am definitely more familiar with the work of her sister, Sonya… ok bad joke. I’m digging these – the last one reminds me of that Spanish horror film The Orphanage.

Julien Vallée

Montreal-based Julien Vallée is a cut & paste master. When I originally posted about the work of Nicolas Burrows I didn’t realise the image of all the stuff coming out of the computer screen was actually a collaborative effort with Vallée. It makes perfect sense now.

Wall-E Wood.

This beautifully crafted wood version of Wall-E is just incredible. I believe a company called Morpheus produced it but I’m not sure if they had the rights as information about the project and images have been taken off the net. I never saw the movie, is it worth seeing?
