Hollywood maverick Spike Jonze in Princeton

March 21, 2006

BMX-Spike Got a chance to spot this gem of a sticker of Hollywood’s maverick storyteller Spike Jonze on a recent trip to Princeton University. It is right on one of the public signs at the Princeton entrance gates on Nassau Street.

Totally brilliant!! Now it all makes sense where Spike got his kicks to make his kickass music videos and also his association with MTV Jackass.

Now the question is when do we get to see a sticker of his other half in moviemaking, the genius writer Charlie Kaufman.

Till then, enjoy Spike the old-skool BMXer.

I Spotted a Space Invader

March 10, 2006

I’m a big fan of Space Invaders. Even though the game is pretty old-school now, the character has lived on through different artistic expression like rubik-cubism and tile art in many cities of the world. Unfortunately, I was never able to spot one among the urban sprawl of Chicago (where I lived for the last three years). Maybe America’s second city was a tad too windy and chilly for the likes of the invaders.

All that is past now, because last month I got a chance to spot my first live space invader in the Soho neighborhood of New York City. And oh boy, it did put a smile on my face. Looking forward to spotting many more as I visit more cities. For now here’s my own NYC Space Invader.

Fuck is the sensational child of the illegitimate inter-species union between a duck and a fish. The real story is delightfully presented on Flickr by its creator who goes by the name ‘white dog bobby’. For now here are couple of her Singapore spottings:

Killer Gerbil is on the loose in Singapore

March 5, 2006

killer gerbilKiller Gerbil is the robo-feline like character created by Singapore-based graffiti maverick who goes by the same name as Killer Gerbil. He’s one tough cat with an attitude. Almost feels like he’s out to wipe the city clean of all other deviant characters. But then again that’s the killer instincts of the killer gerbil.

fresh gerbil Here’s a fresh one. The instincts on the face are still damn scary!!

kitschy gerbil This one is without his infamous jaw protector. Thus a little less scary, but all the more kitschy.

yet another gerbil Yet another gerbil spotting. Without the jaw protector but with menacing blood-red eyes.

Lord Ganesha & his Faithful Mouse does Brooklyn

Brooklyn Ganesha

In a loft somewhere in Brooklyn, New York, Lord Ganesha and his faithful mouse is captured in a tan blue shade doing a sort of hip-hoppy sway to probably some Basement Jaxx tune. This terrific piece of work is by a New York artist who goes by the name Celso. (More Celso work coming in as the journey progresses) Flickr: goreb83 has brilliantly shot this and shared it with us.
