Saint Amour: Russian Bride English

These are some of the letters I’ve received from gorgeous, sexy Russian girls, in search of their one true love on the open plains of the internet. Unlike the other spam I receive, there is something sweet about Russian Bride English. Most likely because they are literal translations from Russian, but oh, are they filled with so much drama and passion.
The first is a letter I received from Anara, a girl prepared to even learn the language of love. I can only imagine what Russian Bride French is like… that could be fun time:

Hello! My name is Anara and I would like to start a conversation with you. I hope that you will answer me. I would like to know more about you and see some of your pictures as well.

I live in Russia and I am 27 years old now. I hope to see the only serious intentions from you, not the game or just the desire to hold your fun time for our conversation.

With respect and a desire to see your reply soon, Anara.

P.S. I hope that we will be able to speak English, the language I know well, but I’m ready to learn French in the future!

The Men’s Guide to Color Theory

Color theory applied to lingerie

A few days ago, a color conspiracy, enacted by women, swept over the social webs to raise awareness and at the same time, pull one over on us men. So now more than ever seems like the appropriate moment to publish an excerpt from the longest ‘short’ story I’ve ever written, but decided not to complete. (I happen to be working on something more important right now). Never the less, rather than leaving this to collect dust, I’ve decided to share with you these little wisdoms and what fascinating things the colors of lingerie have to reveal:

Short Film: Just a love story (not quite safe for work)

Boy meets girl in an elevator

Boy meets girl in an elevator. Boy likes girl. Boy too scared to ask her out. So far, so typical. However; this is not your every-day-garden-variety-love-story.

Just when you think his situation is nothing more than awkward at best, the film takes a turn for the strange. Our boy not only invites an odd bedfellow into his life, it is through this curious action, that he is led to believe that there might be more to this girl than meets the eye.

Pica Towers

In the days before YouTube — when video was still scarcely sprinkled over the internet — a moody website popped up with three short 1 minute animations called Pica Towers. The series was a disturbing glimpse into a distopian world. It focused around the life in a sky scraping tower — somewhere in the middle of a desolate nowhere — inhabited by strange robot like creatures. It is here where we witness some really awful and horrific scenes, yet we never quite make out what’s really going on , or why, if there even is a why.

The shorts were released in the following order:

There will be no comfort. Close the doors!

The success of the series led to a fourth and longer animation in 2004 called “Jojo in the Stars“. Not only do we finally learn more about the tower, it’s also a classic love story where the heart is stronger than struggle and abandon, or good looks for that matter. And before you start thinking: robot like creatures can’t possibly fall in love with each other; In a way, one might consider this the darker version of Pixar’s “WALL-E”.

Pica Towers and Jojo in the Stars were created by Marc Craste from Studio AKA.
