I should have been an artist. Wait.. i’m young, it’s probably not too late. Check out this “art” by LA based James Georgopoulos:

Profound purpose statement:

“Guns of Cinema” is a fearless compilation of iconic cinematic gun images. These works carry a theme that confronts controversy, questioning what makes this object inspirational – the same object that has the ability to protect and take away freedoms or the power to alter history and threaten or destroy lives.

LOL yea.. pretty boilerplate.

So as you can see, James Georgopoulos’ “art” amounts to taking pictures of prop guns and putting them in front of high contrast solid color backgrounds.  He then enlarges the pictures and gets prints made that are several feet across, and through that becomes rich. This guy is a genius… *slow clap*

You can visit his website – JamesGeorgopoulos.org

I’ve been to a handful of famous art museums, and there is definitely crap like this that any joker can do.  On the other end of the spectrum there are the incredibly complex/skilled pieces; I have a lot of respect for those those artists.

Thoughts?

Also known in Japan as “Cat Shit One”, this animated series is scheduled for release in early 2010 … It looks pretty awesome

The series follows three American soldiers (Rabbits) in the Vietnam War named Bota, Perky and Rats. All three are in the recon team called Cat Shit One. Each mission shows the daily activities of the reconnaissance group in Vietnam

The American Rabbits in this are a wordplay on the Japanese word “Usagi”, which also means Rabbit. Another way to look at it is the word as an acronym – U.S.A. G.I.

Pretty neat!

Other animals in this series according to their nationality are:

  • American – Rabbit
  • Vietnamese – Cat
  • French – Pig
  • Chinese – Panda
  • Japanese – Monkey and Gorilla
  • Russian – Bear
  • Korean – Dog
  • British – Rat
  • Australian – Kangaroo
  • German – Fox
  • Middle Eastern – Camel, Goat and Sheep
  • Argentines – Cow

I created this film because I have an interest in the war in the middle east and our involvement with it. I wanted the film to be politically evocative as well as enjoyable to watch. The entire film took approximately 4 months to make and was created and rendered in Blender 2.49a.

Very artistic! visit Andrew Price’s vimeo page – HERE for more of his videos

I mentioned how much I like the original Red Dawn in the past.  Well they are working on a remake right now, that I hope is just as good.  It stars no one that I have heard of, but maybe some of you have…  Wiki Link

In this remake, the invasion is from the Chinese (not the Russians like in the original).

It’s being filmed right now in Michigan, in the city’s of Pontiac and Royal Oak and others.  YouTube user geekincognito has TONS of footage on his page of the sets, props, and filming you should check out!

Here is one video showing all the Chinese propaganda everywhere:
