Today, August 1st, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston is showcasing the first-ever US solo show from brothers Otavio and Gustavo, better known as Brazilian legends Os Gemeos. I have yet to see this mural in person but have been observing its progress on the sly, via Os Gemeos and 12ozprophet's instagram.
Been a fan of these two since college and it’s pretty great that they are getting more recognition here in the US. Wish more cities featured giant murals by them. Let’s make this a thing, America!
When he was 28 years old, Bruce Lee wrote this letter stating his personal goals:
My Definite Chief Aim
I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
X-Men’s Storm: Fashion Sensation of the Mutant World
Ok, we know we just said we didn’t post images or gifs much, but we just remembered this amazing post we put up when our blog was still relatively new.
We are big fans of the 90s X-Men cartoon show (and X-Men in general) and were in the middle of a Netflix binge at the time. We happened to notice that in addition to being kind of a diva and extremely melodramatic (“I summon ARCTIC WINDS!”), Storm had an eye for fashion and loved to try out her new outfits, whether she was preparing for battle or preparing for bed.
