Wheeeeeeeeeeee! You must have acquired that name somewhere; Oooops, it’s showing.
From the amount of time you’ve been hanging in here on DA, I’m surprised.
The man explains his own satire right under the pic! < Special shirt for everybody bitching about how my girls are always smoking lol >. Relax man, Enjoy the vibe!
Having only just discovered this artist; I hold a different view. After a spin around in AngelGanev’s galleries; I’m aghast with his talent, dedication, humour and style; so I’m now a fan. Without blowing pink smoke all over the place in admiration; I’ll leave that there for now.
I enjoy this F off - Day #358 for many reasons; lol reminiscently because if it. Apart from finding that AngelGanev has a lovely balanced graphics style when presenting these dual-panel pic-&-render images; I’ am a heavy smoker, and needed an opportunity to big-up the artist on his cheeky urban smoking girls; and bang! Here it is!
As for the F off print itself; well that spins me back to London, UK, 1971 for a flower-power flash back. As an overseas eng student doing my ‘industrial training’ in London; yep, last part of that Windrush generation, I used to do ‘night work’ as a barman at a pub (?) around Belsize park; up Haverstock Hill near the Royal Free Hospital. Having done the obligatory business of visiting some odd boutique on the Brompton Road, there I found my prize protest T-shirt. During that warm summer, I would gleefully wear a light bright orange shirt, under which the T-shirt loudly declared F*** America (it was Vietnam in those days!) to my bitter-top pint drinking customers. Now, those were the days!
Besides, I’m shore that the delectable young lady displayed above wants no truck with the unfortunate MeToo brigade. Very nice one AngelGanev. Cheers.
You'll have to excuse the bleak ignorance of the young mind like the one above you and myself as well, but I guess this is the curse of being youthful. It's funny, cause I kinda relate to your generation a little better, than my own. I feel like the whole political correctness phenomenon has made the today's kids 'softer'. And my whole 'fuck the system, offensive&sarcastic' attitude isn't perceived as well but still, I feel like that's me and I feel obliged to stay true to myself. Plus, it's dope when people like yourself seem to relate and bring back some sweet memories.
Anyway, thank you for being a part of my journey and it was a pleasure reading some of your story. Keep rocking.
Hi sport, had to take some time out to try to formulate an adequate reply to your considered note above. Thanks for your link; did follow it. You’re a buzzy character. Observe a telling oddity; past American influence now living in the UK; which is severely culturally different; which observation prompts the direction of this reply.
That video doing the digital on 'Pia Mia', NYLON Mag, by Signe Pierce; with fitful rant, was quite entertaining. The resulting Pink Reflection - la, imo, an astonishing eye-candy result! Yep, that boy got talent.
However, while enjoying your rants, and appreciating the useful psychology of some slight self depreciation along the way; I’d like to share a caution with you. Simply, before you rant, do a little study on your subject in the cultural context, before letting rip; as you may have missed a few things, by just regurgitating a round the corner street view. That may help bash the ‘false news’ syndrome that we consistently face these days.
Your rant on the queen and little Megan, were amusing , but you had missed some significant things, that had you understood, might have taken the rant in a different direction. Please bear with me, as I’m just trying to share.
The British constitutional monarchy is littered with historic dates that start with the 'King' as ruler; to over time, diminishing that high status, to one of just being 'symbolic'; with those powers now transferred to the people through Parliament. Some considered dates along this timeline are; William the Conqueror, the feudal system (1066); Magna Carta, pre curser to Parliament (1215); Provisions of Oxford (1258); Supervised by a Parliament (1264); Petition of Right (1628); Bill of Rights (1689); Act of Settlement (1701) etc. Much argument within all of that, and some; but the point here being; today it's Queeny as the head 'symbol'. Within the context of UK culture; one should note; all this pomp and ceremony has been going on for a very long time (note: centuries), and has engendered the many and deep seated traditional ‘Royal’ this, that and the others; (eg RAF). It all boils down to; Queeny and her line are; custodians to tradition, heritage artefacts, and represent a rallying focus when the UK is under stress. Although many may resent her apparent wealth, they often miss the point that she represents a ‘real live’ symbol of duty to the people and to the state.
An example of Queeny in operation; was the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, London, of 14 June 2017. When Queeny turned up on the 16th, to offer her sympathy; there-followed buss loads of ‘officials’ trying to save face, not least being the PM. (PS. At the start of WWII, in order the find something ‘useful to do’, the teenage Elizabeth II trained as a mechanic.)
Turning now to the US Rachel Meghan Markle and her makeover; to loose her name in marriage to become just plain Meghan, Duchess of Sussex; offers a lot to lampoon. However, she is a pretty young lady and showed an apparent loving streak in the relationship. Once you get over the expected media hype, some peculiar realities come through, that again, some overlooked. It was a real wedding, to real traditional royalty. Around all that, there is a real traditional royal oddity. Only members of the royal family are allowed to wear a tiara; yes, that flashy jewelled crown thing that some ladies of royalty wear at special occasions. In this case, it appears that more than good sense prevailed; as a bright Meghan appeared at her wedding wearing a ‘borrowed’ tiara, gifted to her by the Queen from her collection; the remarkably tasteful diamond bandeau tiara in platinum set, made in 1932, to highlight the central brooch of 10 diamonds dating from 1893; an trinket previously owned by Queen Mary. What imo was pleasant about it was that it was not a spiky, crowny affair, but rather a smooth head band with a central focus; much like that portrayed by our present in vogue feminine super-heroes. A pleasant touch for a lovely girl becoming more than a real princess.
You should revisit these images, to see what you could play with!
