These men are a KISS HIM! gift. Honour them.
Facebook has launched its response to Snapchat, with Facebook Poke, the self destructing message deliverer? Why would you want a message to self destruct or delete itself if a person tried to do a screengrab on their phone? Well, so you can send goofy pics to your friends with no trace left behind! Never fear, however, teenagers are here. They’ve been talking to me about how they get around this - if you’re snap chatting a friend and you have a friend with you - get the friend up close to be ready to take a picture with their camera phone and then post the pic on Facebook that was delivered with Snapchat. They think it is hilarious but admit that this app is also being used as a new way to “flash” others. How long will it take for everyone to learn that you can’t ever really destroy anything any more? If it is done it is permanent - the easiest way to keep private things private is to never do them in the first place. This article goes into more about Facebook poke if you really get into that sort of thing or want to keep up with what the kids are doing.
Harding Meyer | on Tumblr (b.1964, Brazil)
Brazilian artist Harding Meyer creates captivating large-scale facial portraits. Vibrant colors and geometric brush stroke techniques brings life to each massive canvas. The portraits’ subject maintains a direct stare giving each piece an almost eerie and mysterious ambiance. Meyer’s mastery of distortion in his life-like painting creates the effect of blurred vision and double sight. Character and personality are given to each unique portrait as Meyer captures the essence of each dark shadow and bright light. In person, one could marvel over each piece for hours examining Meyer’s rich detail and artistry. (cf. TheCoolist) Please follow artist’s Tumblr for more work.
