I’m a little behind on my Internet memes, but apparently for the past three years, there’s been this thing called “Rage Comics” wherein people make comics using crudely drawn faces. If you too hadn’t heard of this, fear not. I have a wonderful introduction for you. An eighty-six year old man uploaded his very own rage comic today about his life and times, and it’s pretty great. Some of you might even shed a tear. Give it a read:
Classify this as creepy but fun. I decided to make a jack-o’-lantern out of Taylor Armstrong’s face, and I must say that I’m very happy with the results. I really wanted to do some pop culture themed pumpkin, and what better place to look for inspiration but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Clearly, I had to pumkin-ify Taylor as she has one of the most distinct faces on Bravo. I’m not saying she necessarily looks like a jack-o’-lantern, but I just knew those famous lips would translate particularly well to a gourd.
After successfully creating Taylor in pumpkin form, I have to say that I’m a little obsessed with doing more. Ideally, it would be great to make pumpkins of the entire Beverly Hills cast, but I’m not sure I have the stamina for such an endeavor (not to mention the time). Next year…

This may be a shock to some people: Los Angeles not only has an art scene, but every once in a blue moon, I actually cross paths with it. Back in May, my friend Meeshie and I attended an exhibit in West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center where we encountered — among other things — a foreboding maze, a startling werewolf, and a news crew from World of Wonder. Seems about right.
Anyway, WoW just released the above video about that night, and it features none other than yours truly (sorry, no Meeshie) in a brief cameo towards the end. Major thanks to reporter Damiana Garcia for graciously referring to me as a “hunky blogger” in the accompanying write-up.
After the jump, a random picture of Meeshie with the werewolf. Continue reading
A few weeks ago, I blogged about a creative Facebook meme that quickly took the internet by storm for forty-eight beautiful hours before flaming out in typical cyber fad fashion. I’m talking, of course, about the create-your-own-album-cover craze which had users combining random quotes, Wikipedia entries, and Flickr pics into one wonderful mashup of potential Indie band art. The results were often hilarious, and even though making the images took a little bit of effort, it was always worth it. Anyway, I told people to send in their best pics, and now I’m happy to present all the submissions as well as a few from the Internet that I found amusing.

Julie Chen turned up in quite the surprising location today: a New York Times article about self-commissioned celebrity portraits. Our favorite hostess and her husband, CBS bigwig Les Moonves, are profiled as some of the many people who’ve had artists recreate their visages for the sake of art. I won’t get into the various details of the article, but needless to say, all that’s really important is that we now have our first officially sanctioned ChenPortrait! Yay!
Next stop? THE LOUVRE. (Just putting it out there)
