I saw several porn-themed works at the Salone del Mobile. All of them by French designers.

My favourite was Ceram X, Pierre Charpin’s new collection of vases and boxes (more on flickr).

Then plates and trays by Pierre Ardouvin. Made in Porcelaine de Limoges, they are decorated with pictures from old calendars, posters or postcards (more images).

Olivier Peyricot was showing the Plateaux Vivre Nu for the République Libre du Design show at the Centre Culturel Francais. The installation aims to incite us to regain possession of our house by means of nudism. (in case you were wondering: no, i don't really know what it means either).

The free version of CyberSave, the unusual screensaver, is now available.

The principle of this screensaver lays in a web tracking of CyberSave’s users. By consulting the map, you can follow its evolution all over the world. You can see how many people has installed it, which version they are using, if they made an "illegal" copy, if they are using the beta version or if they have downloaded the free version available on this website, and where they are located.

CyberSave versions are not protected so that you can freely copy them, download them, send them, burn them...

The map tracks the evolution of CyberSave and illustrates through an ironical way this attitude of copying and using illegal material. Besides the nudity in those photos contribute to increase the number of copies...

I haven't got a clue about what's written on that post, but i do know that those woolly suits are awesome.

Grazie Max!

Update: Thanks to Marius who translated the text. Translation (it's in Swedish): "Winter is not the right time of year for outdoot nudism, at least not at Swedish latitudes. But these creations in lovely pig pink might make the time until summer seem shorter."

And to Liz who sent a link to a webpage showing more works by Anna Maltz, the artist who crafted the suits.

This morning i ran into this super outlandish trailer of Deadly Weapons, with Chesty Morgan and Harry-Deep Throat-Reems. I first thought this trailer showing an assassin who kills men with her 73-inch bust size was some kind of joke. A quick look at imdb and i got fascinated by Doris Wishman, often referred to as the "female Ed Wood."

Most of her 30 films were sexploitation films. Her directing, editing and marketing skills were self-taught and almost all of her films were self-produced. They often featured hand held tracking shots that would be interrupted by cutaways to shots of ashtrays, bric-a-brac, and characters' knees, hands, and feet.

In 1958, Wishman started directing nudist films such as Blaze Starr Goes Nudist (1960, with burlesque star Blaze Starr) and Nude on the Moon (1962), the story of a nudist civilization on the moon and two Earth astronauts who discover it. When changes in legalities created markets for sexploitation films, Wishman made sassier films such as Bad Girls Go to Hell (1965), Another Day, Another Man (1966), Deadly Weapons (1973), and Double Agent 73 (1974). But when hardcore pornographic films went mainstream, her output dwindled, although she tried her hand at X-rated features such as Satan Was a Lady (1975). In 1978 she directed Let Me Die a Woman, a pseudo-documentary about transsexuals, featuring rather gruesome footage of actual sex-change operations.
