So, I was checking on the Deviant Decorum MySpace page, you should add us, http://www.myspace.com/deviantdecorum , for updates. Anyway, I was signing into myspace the other day and saw something funny on the home page. I wonder when they are doing the layout the designers realize the comedy in putting Ashley Simpson Motherhood and a Horror Movie ad on the same little content box, because they do seem like the same thing, right? Or, was it a little inside joke? Like, you remember all that crazy stuff hidden stuff in the Disney movies, the priest’s massive boner bouncing around in the Little Mermaid? So, when I saw this I had good laugh, because after reading the headline, that’s what I felt like on the inside, an attractive, scared, screaming girl…covered in water.
The Mac and Retna went big in Miami last weekend for Art Basel. The two street artists went to work on a large mural featuring script by Retna and The Mac’s undenyable style. IF you haven’t seen these guys collaborate yet, it’s one of the best things to hit walls in a while. I put in a picture of one of their past projects below.
Some other stuff they’ve done:
Told you they were dope.
“Tonight, FIFTY24SF is hosting two blockbuster shows. Jeremy Fish will be showing “Ghosts of the Barbary Coast” in the upstairs gallery. His show features over 35 new works, inspired by hoodlum’s and harlot’s, cataloging the history of San Francisco. Miss Van is showing “Still A Little Magic,” bringing her infamous “poupees” into the world of theater and charade under the big top tents. The shows open December 4th and run through December 30th.”

Forget malls. Seriously. Malls are for unsupervised pre-teens and old people in track suits. Plus, if you go to the big stores you risk being trampled by folks all hopped up on Grand Slam’s from Denny’s. This holiday season get gifts that count, gifts that you aren’t going to see on inserts in the local paper. Plus, going outside the ordinary doesn’t mean you have to spend a bunch of money, in this economy everybody is having holiday sales. So instead of padding the pockets of Corporate Fat Cats, here are some sales from the DIY world that are well worth checking out. More sales to come, but thought this would be good enough for now. Click on each flyer to be directly taken to the website.
After all the gorging and interventions that Thanksgiving brings, I thought let’s kick it on the lighter side and peek and some comics. These strips are from the days of when a Dime Piece was a Dame and Drive-By’s were done by men in three-piece suits. For your awkward enjoyment, here are some hilarious unintentionally sexual comics that aided in digestion.
Art and Design star KAWS kicked custom cover art for the highly anticipated, extremely vocoded, 808’s and Heartbreak the new album from Kanye West aka Yeezy aka The Louis Vuitton Don. The cover art is available exclusively through iTunes when the album hits on November 25th. The KAWS album will be available in stores on December 16th as a special edition Christmas Album. The dunks were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Yeezy soon would be there. Ho’s Ho’s Ho’s.
Pull up your tight sag and run your ass over to 169 Bowery to peek the new Reebok concept store called FLASH. It’s here for only one month and each week they will be releasing a limited edition shoe that only has a shelf life of that one week, then it’s replaced by another limited edition shoe for the following week. 1 month = 4 shoes to collect in all. The store will have limited edition apparel and other footwear as well. Be sure to go on the days where the young whipper snappers won’t be running around and acting like those lady’s when they sell wedding dresses at a discount. You know, like this:

This morning I was given a free New York Times with the headline “IRAQ WAR ENDS”. The paper is dated July 4th, 2009 and in the top left corner the statement, “All the news we hope to print”. This elaborate prank is hitting the busy subway stations of New York this morning and early rumors attribute this elaborate hoax to THE YES MEN, a liberal prank group, who even set up a NY Times mimic website with the stories and links to other liberal organizations. The 15 page paper is filled with articles and ads all pushing towards a utopian world where war has ended, oil companies are pushing for environmental causes, universal healthcare and much more. The New York Times has a disclaimer already posted with more information on the hoax that can be found here. An official Times spokesman said, “This is obviously a fake issue of The Times. We are in the process of finding out more about it.”
The NYC STORMHUNTERS scavanger hunt starts today. In the next 10 days NYC residents get their chance to get the new Blackberry Storm for FREE. That’s right, Faaaa Reeee. The Verizon Wireless Blackberry Storm Chasers is a scavenger hunt with over 40 participating venues in Manhattan. In each of these venues there is a Blackberry display hidden inside, on that display there is a number and keyword to text in for that particular store. Then POOF! You are registered to win. The more you find, the more times you are entered. You can enter each keyword once a day for the next 10 days. 5 Storms will be given away daily as well as ten $100 gift certificates given away each day too. This is probably one of the most innovative promotions I’ve seen in a while. Go, play, enter, win and then you can have the priviledge of saying, “Yo, I got this phone before it even was released” or if you prefer “Copped it before Kanye got it son!” It’s the gold medal in the streetwear olympics, the “I got this and you don’t” event. So Usain Bolt yourself out on the streets and be the envy of all your friends. Beyond the cracks on the young and tight sagged, I’ll even admit I have been playing too. Used my lunch break to find 15 spots. Check the website for rules and praticipating stores or you can start right now by texting EVILLAGE to 41039 to start the hunt.
