Que Duong Proves Her Wrong

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Picked up the premiere issue of Amelie G magazine, a stylemag here in New Orleans. Flipping through it I was immediately impressed by the fashion photography of Que Duong. Visiting his website, I couldn’t help but notice the following statement:

My name is Que Duong and I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. I was born in Vietnam on April 25, 1987. When my mother was pregnant with me, a fortune teller / village witch doctor told her that I will grow up to be an average person. This is my journey to prove her wrong.

The Lost Gareth Pugh Star Trek Episode and Other S/S 2011 Highlights

Friday, October 8th, 2010

The lost episode opens with Kirk, Spock and Bones beaming down to a retrofuturistic planet. Gareth Pugh has engineered a “progressive” race that lacks the ability to emote. “Everyone is perfect here”, says Kirk rhetorically, “too perfect“. A philosophical debate about human emotion breaks out in the background between Spock and Bones. Conveniently, the Gareth Pugh race has a dire conflict that can only be resolved with Kirk’s human emotions, revealing that the race isn’t so progressive after all. The show comes to a close with everyone back on the bridge of the Enterprise poking fun at Spock, the scene fading to black with a close-up of the captain’s grin.
