MAC to Launch Marge Simpson Makeup Line

MARGE SIMPSON LINE: MAC COSMETICS

MARGE SIMPSON LINE: MAC COSMETICS

I couldn’t help but share this with you all. It seems silly to me, unless maybe you’re a DIEHARD Marge Simpson and makeup fan. Which, I guess, you could be. Regardless, it made me laugh.

via Entertainment Weekly:

So, yeah: This summer, fictional housewife Marge Simpson joins a long line of boldfaced names—including, most recently, LordeKelly Osbourne, and, er, Maleficent—who have inspired MAC cosmetics makeup collections. The 10-piece line includes lip glosses, false eyelashes, nail stickers, brightly colored eyeshadows (yes, there’s a bright blue) and blushes, though, curiously, none come in shades of yellow. (How can you really get the Marge Simpson look without aping her signature skin tone?)

Here’s what “Marge” “has to say” about the products, according to a press release certainly not written by a Simpsons scribe: “They’re all so great, but I must say that Lisa’s Spikes really works well with my skin tone and of course, Beehive Blue complements my hair perfectly.”

The line is set to hit the web Aug.

Shape Shifting Lizard Skin Cream (With Vitamin E)

Via Boing Boing, the ideal David Icke-approved holiday gift for the important people in your life is up for sale on Etsy:

Shapeshifting from lizard to human form is great for controlling Earth so you can mine gold to save your dying homeworld, but it’s not so great for your skin.

When you’re juggling appointments and global depopulation deadlines, you don’t have time for an exhaustive skincare regime, especially after you’ve been up all night sodomising infants on a blood-soaked altar.

That’s why there’s new Hypoallergenic Shapeshifting Lizard Skin Cream. Never again spend hours removing crusty nodules from your armoured eyelids or sandblasting your segmented underbelly. Instead, spend your life-cycle on the things that really matter to you: eating babies, manipulating financial markets and basking on rocks in the warm glow of Earth’s home star.

How To Conceal Your Face From Machines

CV Dazzle is a project to develop a toolkit of styling and beauty-based methods to fight back against camera and computer facial recognition, allowing you to hide in plain sight:

The primary objective [is] thwarting face detection under the guise of high-fashion aesthetics. While there are several obvious approaches to hiding from face detection, some of these can be dismissed.

Sunglasses, for example, are a known occlusion which some algorithms account for. Wearing masks in public can be illegal. Hoods are popular and effective but make the wearer’s intent to hide too obvious. As an alternative, this project explores ways using ambiguously deceptive fashion.

CV Dazzle™ is camouflage from computer vision (CV). It is a form of expressive interference that combines makeup and hair styling (or other modifications) with face-detection thwarting designs. The name is derived from a type of camouflage used during WWI, called Dazzle, which was used to break apart the gestalt-image of warships, making it hard to discern their directionality, size, and orientation.

Animal Rights Protester Agrees To Be Tortured

783784-nPerformance art with an undertone of torture seems to be big right now -- so at least it's being put to good use in an animal rights protest shocking passersby in central London. The Herald Sun writes:
A young woman agreed to be tortured in full public view to try and end animal testing. Jacqueline Traide endured ten hours of injections, being smothered in different lotions, and irritants being squirted into her eyes as part of a world-wide campaign by Lush and The Humane Society International. The stunt took place in a Lush store window on London's Regent Street, one of the UK's busiest shopping precincts. Passers-by were stunned by the display, with many stopping to take photos and record the gruesome spectacle with their phones.
