Guilty Pleasure

   I have a new guilty pleasure as of late.  Months ago I had seen a trailer for MTV’s new TV show “Skins”.  The preview looked so unbelievably terrible that I momentarily became fascinated and decided to look up information about it online.  I found out that it was actually a remake of a version that aired for multiple seasons in the UK.  The reviews that I had read said that the UK version was edgy and would never be able to be aired in the US because of the content.  So I decided to watch the first season on Netflix.  As soon as I had finished the first episode, I knew that there would be no way I would ever watch the watered down US version, there would be no reason to. 
   The show is based around a group of kids, each of course loaded with their own problems and getting into their own ridiculous “real life” situations.  Doesn’t sound like anything special right?  As I got more and more into the first season it hit me as to why the show is so awesome.  Nicole was on the couch next to me as I was watching.  She was on her laptop not actually watching the show but peeking over at the TV occasionally and finally made a comment that pretty much summed up the show.  She said that the show is basically an R-rated Nickelodeon show.  That description is dead on.  If you ever wondered what a Nickelodeon show would be like with drug use, violence, strong sexual content, and low brow humor defiantly give the U.K. version of “Skins” a watch. It is bloody brilliant.

  I finished another model pic for the site that I thought came out well.  This one is for my Hemingway shirt where I have done some Photoshop stuff with a picture I shot of Nicole.

Going to try something new.

    Nicole has sent a video to watch a few days ago made by the people at threadless.com which is a pretty large and successful T-shirt company.  I don’t have an issue plugging them on my blog because they do really awesome things over there and our shirts are completely different.  The video focused on the creative ways that they portray the models that are wearing the shirts. I am by no means a professional photographer but one of the little things they would sometimes do is stick the model in an alternative universe using Photoshop which I am good at using.  I’m going to do a test run hopefully tomorrow.
