exactly 10 years ago today, on 29th of April 2006, T. Bangalter & G.M. de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk debuted with their pyramid setup for the first time on Coachella and changed the landscape of electronic music forever. I think that this was some kind of blessing and I lowkey hope that they will come back this/next year with 20 years of Alive tour (1997 - 2007 - 2017)
I’m thankful for the friendship I’ve gained working with Patrick DeHaven (Rabidirish on various forums, TDC/RPF). We push each other to build ultimately the most accurate representation of Daft Punk that’s feasibly possible without casting off Daft Arts originals! This year at Dragon Con he got to reveal his Human After All/ALIVE costumes. He is wearing Guy, and his buddy Johnny is wearing Thomas. I am holding my Grammy dressed in the TRON Premiere/Grammys costumes, with my friend Eric wearing Thomas.
It’s worth noting these aren’t first drafts of anything worn. I’m on my second RAM Guy, and second Tux. Patrick is also on his second Guy helmet and plans to redo the leather outfits.
It’s worth noting we’re both working towards the ultimate Discovery costumes, perfectly represented as the originals. I can’t wait to share it with the world when it’s truely ready.
You know what I fucking hate? I fucking hate how Taylor never gets a rest. She is CONSTANTLY getting dragged by nearly EVERYONE. Not to mention she was slut-shamed for many years, Kanye and Taylor’s VMA moment, Ellen constantly showing pictures of men Taylor dated on the screen every time she visits, the media manipulating and fabricating stories about her, being bagged for her head-banging during the All Too Well Grammys performance despite the fact she’s done that for most piano, acoustic songs she’s performed on tour, how people dragged her for being surprised cause Random Access Memories was announced instead of Red for Album of the Year, how she wrote an album for a message to younger generations to find themselves and live freely only to be accused of being “pop trash” or accused of not writing all her songs despite the fact she writes all of them, and people accusing her she can’t sing, calling her anti-feminist cause she wrote Bad Blood about how she’s a victim in a friendship’s betrayal, called fake because she has many friends and a squad, called racist cause of her Wildest Dreams video, told she “can’t get over Harry Styles” when she released Out of the Woods when clearly the message was that she found herself, how Adele can remove her music from Spotify and no one bats an eye but Taylor does and everyone loses their minds, how Taylor stood up for (undiscovered) musicians by writing a letter to Apple but was called “money-hungry” and “selfish”, how she’s accused of being greedy for trademarking a couple terms whilst other artists trademark other ridiculous terms and no one says anything, how she sued someone for SEXUAL HARASSMENT and it became a SUING MEME and how she forgave Kanye, wrote a song for him years back to forgive him, presented the VMA Vanguard award for him and now he repays her by being misogynistic and apparently “making her famous”. I don’t know how Taylor has kept her cool but for Christ’s sakes, give this fucking girl a break.
What’s up everybody? I decided to give y'all a some more Weeknd/Polaroid-style album covers. These have been very successful for my blog and I gotta thank everyone who has been liking, reblogging, commenting, everything. It is greatly appreciated. Enjoy!
