Latest pcks
Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Latest Picks is a sort of mini-blog for daily thoughts and picks. Longer articles, stories & sketches are found in the full-size blog, where indeed Latest Picks are moved when updates to a story make it too large.

Note: Both Latest Picks and Blog are to be retired at the end of September, although both will remain available indefinitely as an archived part of the site. No further updates to past stories will be made.

Kim Kardashian West, Rolling Stone

Seems Kim Kardashian West is getting more difficult brown attention (dlisted.com, Dec. 2011) than Sinead O’Connor too.

Sinead O’Connor declares “music is dead” after Rolling Stone puts Kim Kardashian on its cover (independent.co.uk).

“The outspoken musician has called for a boycott on Rolling Stone magazine after it placed Kim Kardashian on its front cover. O’Connor wrote on her Facebook page: ‘What is this c*** doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it?’”

Ummm… perhaps because Rolling Stone is a fortnightly magazine that focuses on “popular culture”—for sure, it says so on Wiki. Hell, it’s not just musos that have been on its cover, even Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has adorned a recent issue, for which it was labelled “truly shameless” too, and indeed, I don’t recall what Jennifer Anison’s bare bottom warbled to get hers either.

Seemingly the magazine shifted focus to a hipster readership interested as much in hip television shows, film, current events and (not so) counterculture (and tits) as well as popular music some time in the 90s; although apparently in recent years the magazine has resumed its traditional mix of content (read more traditional tit).

“O’Connor’s fans were largely in agreement with the singer, with Charlie Gipson writing on her Facebook page: ‘Amazing…fake tits, money and no talent get you on the cover of the Rolling Stone! Someone should write a song about that…’”

Fore sure, all to spoil the popular enjoyment of serious music. However, I often suspect that some trawling for piccies of pop divas on various celeb sites are not as particularly interested in their musical output as much as anything else that is often candidly output, and indeed, can often be as irreverential regardless of how many albums they have released and sold, perhaps just wishing Kraftwerk had shown a bit more thumper too.

And hang on, didn’t Kimbo release that “Jam (Turn It Up)” thingy back in 2010 to accompany Kourtney and Kim Take New York?

Okay, I don’t know, it might not be going to stand in Bob Dylan’s moccasins but, for sure, not everyone can sit through indie folksters Mumford and Sons without feeling need to nip off and take—an at least environmentally friendly—dump to fertilise New Sincerities fields either. I guess music is, today at least, but probably many a yesterday too, as much a lifestyle choice as anything else.

“But Angela D Vecchio said music had already died. ‘Bob Dylan released any album which could only be bought at Starbucks. I don’t think Bob Dylan would be as horrified as you think. Rolling Stone is about selling magazines.’”
