Bongoût Gallery in Berlin have finally announced that pre-orders are being taken for “Human Nature”, a 128-page, hard cover collection of photographs by Daikichi “Genki Genki” Amano. No indication when it will be released but, at only €39,95, it’s sure to sell out fast.

“Crowd Porn 2″ by xtrapop (from the “Coachella Porn – Dante’s Orgy” series)
The idea that the Red Hot Chilli Peppers could inspire anything but catalepsy in an audience is beyond both my belief and understanding but, sometimes, it takes a photograph to show you what is in front of your eyes.
For me, this beautiful photo series of crowd scenes at Coachella, by Flickr member xtrapop (a.k.a. Thomas Brodahl), immediately brings to mind the listless rutting depicted in the orgy scene of the movie “Perfume” rather than Dante’s diabolical torments.

Those nice people at Condomania now have a blog dedicated to their growing range of artist-designed condoms and related stuff. They also took me totally by surprise recently by commenting on this blog!
“We recently got the bright idea to gather together a bunch of working artists and ask them to design packaging for condoms which will both interest and excite our customers. This website is our attempt to document that process while also pointing out where others in the condom industry are doing things right, and where they are doing things wrong from our perspective.”

I’ve always been a big fan of condoms, regardless of necessity, so the launch of a new range bearing the “Rubber Doll” design of one of my all time favourite artists, Trevor Brown, is a cause for, erm, celebration.
