S Trains are now fitted with the most invasive of advertising platforms; tv screens. They weren't running when I was on them but I still stared up at the nearest one wondering whether it would flicker to life and lick my retina with its incandescent radiation. That's the thing about tv's they grab your attention regardless of whether you want them too. They arrest the present moment, holding you captive until at the last moment possible you struggle free and back to plain old everyday life. It's a sad moment in Danish transport history that DSB customers are now paying to be subject to even more advertising.
The video is of what is called a pixelator; a honeycombed structure designed to abstract the information on the screen and render it unintelligible. The screens then operate as abstract video art or aesthetic and atmospheric light pieces. Brilliant.

Good parties at Rust this weekend. I'll just vie you the blurb I got from Dick:

We are proud to present BEAT THIS! and welcome Andrew Meza from the genre defying radio show BTS RADIO to Copenhagen for his first visit ever!

It's going down FRIDAY 20th and SATURDAY 21st November with a warm up set at MESTEREN OG LÆRLINGEN from 22-3am and SATURDAY at RUST with support from FERGUS MURPHY (TOUGHLOVE) and a duo set from QUADRON (pretty much the hottest shit in Copenhagen right now right?)

Where the Wild Things Are

Spike Jonze's film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" is generating tons of hype. It's probably deserved; the trailers look incredible. Good ol' Spike.

"You know I love Copenhagen and everything except that everyone fucken looks like each other!" (spoken by every foreigner I meet)
Really? Sure, those Norse caps got REALLY old and every other boy is wearing denim shirts and tucked in jeans whilst riding fixies. Fact is no matter where you live in the world, we're gonna wanna look like each other. Uniforms are here to stay.
I've not seen a better attempt at cataloging this than the project 'Exactitudes' by Dutch photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek. As they put it, they were "inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, [and] have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 14 years."

ONLY - Denimize the World

All the young and beautiful people in this Ad for clothing company ONLY were provided courtesy of ArtCast. I've never been to a party like this, I probably never will. I hope they don't exist because being left out just hurts so much. Ah, there's more to life than being beautiful, but it looks like you have more fun if you are.

CPH:DOX YouTube Battle

The CPH:DOX YouTube battle was held in Pumpehuset before a raucous and ruthless crowd who boo'ed as much as they cheered. Some unemployed dude from Northern Jylland won out ahead of the celebrity teams, which isn't much of a surprise as finding YouTube gems requires hours of dedication. Here's what Politiken had to say about it.

I didn't take my camera so no pics of the event. Instead, here's one of my YouTube favourites.

Animal Hair by Nagi Noda

I don't understand why girls in Copenhagen like to walk around with dead animals around their necks. There are better ways to accessorise with animals. Like this. Japanese Nagi Noda makes animal hair sculptures that are made out of human hair. Not half as gross and much cooler.

Her website is mad slow. Go here to see a bunch of pics that actually loads.
