Trompe L’oeil Cindy

A dog can be so much more than just a boring dog!

You know, we love everything Trompe L’oeil here at produzentin.com. My friend Mischell just sent me the wonderful Create Grooming Poodle site (he seems to be really into poodles).

Anyways, now that I know that a dog can be so much more than just a boring dog, I want I poodle like Cindy, who loves attention and can look like:

A Dragon, for instance

Or a peacock

A peacock after the show without feathers

My favourite: a ninja turtle!

This is not allgemein anymore, this is speziell.

The Sexual Aberrations: Part One

Plays until Sunday, 8:00pm, The Chamber at Buddies

This play is written and directed by my friend Alex Wolfson (gay) and it is the absolute winner at the Rhubarb festival. The three actresses should get a Tony nomination. I adore them. Of course, I knew I would love everything about the play as soon as I saw the Trompe-l”™Å“il set design by the dearest Bojana Bobo Stancic.

Performed by Amy Bowles, Lindsey Clark and Liz Peterson
The Sexual Aberrations: Part One is the first in a series of three plays based on the Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality by Sigmund Freud.

Hotnuts Trompe-l’œil

We got some Trompe-l’œil action last night. The lady strippers got the audience all heated up & provided some lezzie action for birthday girl Andrea. Then Mikiki took the stage with a self piercing performance number. I think she’s a vampire, she did not bleed a single drop.

p.s. Mary might be preggers, we’re waiting for the test results.

All pictures are on flickr in full size.

MMM does Carlu’s Apartment

OK, I want to hire the Maison Martin Margiela interior design team or move to Paris or paint everything white & use white covers and stuff, you get the picture. Und ich will auch nur noch schwarz-weiß trompe l’oeil ÜBERALL. I need a MMM intervention!!! Please read…

The Cite de l’architecture & du patrimoine (museum inside Palais de Chaillot) and the magazine Elle Décoration have asked Maison Martin Margiela to revive the former apartment of Jacques Carlu, the architect of the Palais de Chaillot in the 1930’s.

Check out Elle Décoration for two videos. (this is the one link in this post you need to click!) Make sure to watch the MMM tour guide video with no faces allowed.

Before?

“ELLE have given carte blanche to Maison Martin Margiela for the interior work on this exceptional 220qm apartment located opposite the Eiffel tower that overlooks all of Paris from its terrace.
The intervention of Maison Martin Margiela in the suite goes beyond simple decoration, it seeks to revive the place, in space and time. Time that stops after a party and leaves only disorder. (…)
Here the codes, themes and universe of the Maison mix (whites, silver, trompe l’oeil, cotton covers, the traces of time). Its values are also apparent (irony, shifted use, deconstruction), values which the Maison never ceases to interpret in its creative expression, through clothing or the universes it develops.” (source)

Or after?

The ELLE Décoration Suite (don’t you love the name?) by Maison Martin Margiela is open to the public until October 1st, 2009. Visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 5pm.

And when you Torontonian’s thought “Carlu” sounds familiar, you’re right: Jacques Carlu is also the architect of a Toronto landmark, you guessed it, The Carlu, an Art Moderne masterpiece, as wiki says.

In other Margiela news, it seems that Kanye is totally addicted to MMM (welcome to the club). This week alone, he has blogged about MMM products 4 times: braclet, gay bags, shop in London & gay sneakers. Just wait for my favourite MMM summer products to pop up right HER.
Can’t wait to meet ‘Ye at a MMM store.
