Sci-fi and sexy, the latest Nerdcore calendar has got everyone impatient for 2009 to start. Fleshbot reports:
"...those Nerdcore kids have gone and upped the ante with this gorgeous pic of Justine Joli, bare naked and in the arms of a robot."
This is definitely on my Xmas list - what better than to find a dozen femme fatales under the fur tree?

The Pet's Eye View digital camera is a seemingly handy device for capturing photographs of your pet's activities during the day. The gadget can be set to capture a photograph every 1, 5 or 15 minutes, but alas only has storage for up to 35 photos. While the Pet's Eye View might be helpful in finding out if your pet is the one who keeps rummaging through the trash, we wouldn't be surprised if this was used to catch pet-abusing neighbors or cheating spouses in the act (cats can sometimes be *too* curious).

Molded into classic pin-ups, six supermodels are gracing some of Louis Vuitton's latest purse promotions. From Claudia Schiffer to Naomi Campbell, the hair is big and the legs are definitely long. The revisit to retro was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. We could leave LV's Spring Summer 2008 collection behind, but we'd gladly get on the waiting list for some pin-up-esque lingerie.
Analog graffiti may be on its way out, as a new street artist does digital to make their message. Known as "The Decapitator", the artist takes advertisements and obviously enough, decapitates the main characters that appear in them. With no words and subtle changes, this graffiti style is more along the lines of last year's Broken Link as opposed to the infamous and much-hated "The Splasher". Thankfully, "The Decapitator" keeps to his digital stance by maintaining a Flickr account.

YesButNoButYes pokes fun at a variety of niche fetishes found across the interweb. The list starts with a link to a specific fetish that had a sad outcome. A man on Flickr had a thing for women in the backseat of cars wearing seatbelts. He had apparently favorited an entire collection of examples. When a few Flickr members realized that their public photos were becoming a fetish, they called him out and he deleted the entire account.
Luckily, the list of ten "funny fetish" sites may help satiate your niche needs without the nasty account deletion. From Japanese Girls with Big Shoes to Sneezing Babes to Slave Leia societies and more PG-rated obsessions like girls drinking tea, the internet is a truly a series of infinite niches. [via]

Deliciously deadly, David Lynch has partnered up with designer Christian Louboutin to create a frightening set of five fetish-worthy footwear. The "Fetish" line is to be on display until tomorrow in Paris at Galerie du Passage.
"Louboutin says of the collaboration, "The models wore these unwearable shoes with natural grace. Their very white skin, very dark eyes and bright mouths melded with Lynch's aesthetics…As is his habit, David Lynch made it into a décor populated with shadows.""
Lucky for Prada, Lynch won't take his passion for haute couture heels beyond this limited edition.

Always delightful, Dita von Teese poses for PETA. It seems as though PETA aims to be the new Playboy these days, as attractive naked women are their solution to any situation. Dolled up in thigh highs and heels, Teese teaches the importance of animal birth control in the 50's-esque photo. The burlesque beauty is far from the first to grace the gaze of the "naked for a cause" PETA porn. Pam Anderson, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and most recently Alicia Silverstone have all stripped for PETA's SLR. Surely, there's no shortage of women who will use a good cause as an excuse to bare all of their beauty with class.

Protecting your privates appears to be a growing concern among ladies. A new pair of panties made in Japan helps thwart off intimately-intrusive infrared photography. Called "Shot Guard", the unsightly underwear protects women and children from perverted paparazzi by blocking heat. The heat blocking seems to work both directions, however, as any unfortunate onlookers may turn off their temptation temperature.

Conde Nast, the global magazine publisher, kicked off a new campaign recently titled Point of Passion. The advertising features photos of an array of celebrities reading various Conde Nast publications, all with a somewhat forced expression of interest on their face. To lighten up their mood, Gawker had some cut-n-paste fun with copy. The photos included lines like "We'll never leave you for a hotter younger less pregnant subscriber" and "In space no one can hear you scream about our terrible layout". If only advertising was always this comforting.

Drawn out and documented, Opera has created the Ev-Wii-where Challenge that tasks Nintendo fans to take found-art-esque photos of the word Wii. With the obligatory cheesy contest name, it's no surprise that the challenge asks for the photos to be from public places, making sure to call you out as the advertising whore you are to passersby. The Ev-Wii-where Challenge is to celebrate the final Wii Opera browser, due to come out sometime in April.
"Everywhere you turn, there's a commercial or store display. Every magazine cover is plastered with Wii news. Every store is trying to get you to trade in for Wii games. Every website's got a Wii news story almost daily. Wii is more than a success, it is a cultural phenomenon. Wii is everywhere. Well... almost. Let's have a little fun with the general public!"
Is the contest Wiilly cute, or has the Wii worn out its consumer-generated welcome by now?

Editing erections and filtering flesh, the Scrambled series blurs the lines between focal points and fetishes. Shifting seduction, an experimental series examines orgasmic obstruction. Digitally destructing pornographic pixels, the series aims to exploit artifacts and errors. Perhaps to be more accurately titled Fuck That Noise, the visual "feedback" fixates the viewer, similar to a insatiably solved Rubik's Cube.
"For the Scrambled series, using video footage downloaded from Internet, we exploit the artifacts, errors, blurs inherent to heavy digital compression and incomplete files. Dozens of snapshots are generated. Here, the creative process in itself rely on selecting the right images: identifiable as pornographic, but somehow deactivated."

Along with many spin-offs of the surely soon-to-be-if-not-already-hated Vista slogan. While Technorati is already trying to call dibs on dubaya-tee-eff moments, they're a little late on the acronym trending. Perhaps they should try quotes around it next time. Regardless, this lovely jewel came across the screen promoting Vista with none other than an Apple iBook (in 2G-iPod-eggshell-white for all the junkies). Engadget points out Apple's ability to run Vista and advertiser's inability to avoid shit-stock photography. Apparently the 'WOW' starts after you realize that iBook doesn't run Vista, somewhere between asking why your mouse only has one button and why there's no Mindsweeper.

A feature that was to be in Jane's Magazine titled 'Jane's Guide to Boobs' has been canceled to the chagrin of preemptive erections everywhere. The feature was to showcase 53 firm femmes topless, but Jane isn't running some kind of flash-it-all whorehouse, they keep their identities covered and it's an extra fee to get a 'private dance lesson', alright? Or at least that was the idea. But as with any strip club, you begin having sheer cover-ups, and then smaller ones, and before you know it, you're showing the man in the boat for $5 a pop. Okay, perhaps Jane didn't go that far, but the list of 53 women who were paid a whopping $50 each to take it off was leaked and Jane soon after pulled the plug. Women may just have stay with the traditional route of using grope guides to find our way around boobs.

Cigar-sucking and champagne-holding, two vixens laced the front page of Gawker yesterday. Posting their February pin-ups, the gossip-mongers sent over a photographer to capture the feminist-fatales. The lovely spread features a sex columnist coupled with a blogger/novelist. As the pictures can attest, the curvaceous lines between those roles can easily be blurred.

While us ladies are known to self-portrait strip tease for ourselves in the privacy of our own home and boredom (you only need to look at the photo I have up to come to your own conclusion), we usually keep them safe and sound on our harddrives. Wanting to share her boredom with the blogosphere, however, Violet Blue documents her favorite panties to help relieve some stress. Also appearing in the pictures is her "blogger" tattoo which I'd love to know the backstory behind that one (also, what is with sex columnists photographing themselves with cupcakes?). With cute shoes, cute shots, cute panties (and a cute tush to match!), Violet takes care of our boredom as well.

Known for her design, Kate Spade reveals sneak peeks behind the curtains of her composition. Giving a selection of photos from her Spring 2006 collection, she also offers a "behind the scenes" gallery with the pre-silicon production value. The retro-hipness of it all may just make you want to bake cupcakes after a day of shoe shopping and hitchhiking. How bohemian-hipster (...bohepster?) of you.

In a god-knows-why stunt, a man ponders, "I wonder what it would look like to see every ad in Times Square all on one page.” Equipped with a camera, too much spare time, and the remnants of a soul, David catalogged as many ads as he could point his lens at. With so many to pick from, you can easily choose which ones have pissed you off the most over the course of your daily commute or New Year's Eve let down spent at home. If only someone had told him he could get the same effect by just visiting the Million Dollar Homepage (or the sequel: Pixelotto).

Like getting dressed. Urban Photography pins up their most tasteful twelve for 2007. Benefitting Breast Cancer charities, sneaking a peek has never had more of a good intention. This year's strip features the twelve doing a variety of household chores. With so many months in the year, one can only hope the calendar is well hung, in your office of course.
Spreading the pages of a glossy magazine as opposed to a tv screen, Battlestar Galactica star Trisha Helfer dives into Playboy. The "sexy Cylon" appears in the latest edition of Playboy and seems fairly confident that her geek squad will follow her curves to the yet-to-be-sticky pages.
"I hope people like them," Helfer told The Post of her 10-page nude pictorial shot by famed shutterbug Sante D'Orazio. "I know I do."
Despite the off-screen confidence, Helfer's BG on-screen character has started to doubt her machine loyalty. It's okay Trisha, you already have a following from geeks and humans alike.

Spreading her sultry, sensual ways across film, Salma Hayek poses for the latest Campari campaign, Hotel Campari. Being the main attraction for their 2007 calendar, one can never be sure which brand is truly getting more exposure. Salma steps up the competition with two of her own. The concept for the campaign is derived from mysertiously sexy boutique hotels. Complete with peeping rooms and Do Not Disturb signs, temptation runs high.
"Hotel Campari – doors ajar, an atmosphere full of whispers, exchanged glances, an ethereal place in which dream and reality meet. Salma Hayek, dark eyes, crimson lips and a slow and haughty pace brings Campari Red Passion alive."

Word to the wise and insatiable, over indulgence this season can carry consequences. Literally capturing the femme fatales, Daniela Edburg's new Drop Dead Gorgeous series mixes the gorgeous with a dash of glucose-gore. The photography is delicious for art appreciators and historians alike. Unlike the nutrition facts, the photographer uses the pure ingredients of glamour and death that don't leave your tongue tied. Edburg explains:
"I guess I am pretty compulsive. That which gives me pleasure one minute, causes guilt the next. I am surprised at how much I like the products I consume, but, if you stop for one second to think about it, it’s absurd. Yet, you can’t stop. [The work] is not a criticism it’s just an exaggeration of my own reality."

Best Week Ever points to two photoshoots of the bosom-beloved Scarlett Johansson. This week, Louis Vuitton unvailed their Spring/Summer campaign with a 1930s flare of pin-up passion. Also giving release this week was a photoshoot eager to please with a bit of pain. With spiked heels, a red lip, and uncrossed legs, the PussyCat Doll rendition left little to the imagination but much to desire. So which fancies your flavor, PussyCat or pin-up? Vote here.

With fishnets, feathers, and a dash of pasties, Nike promoted their new store in Paris with a mixture of fashionable addrenaline and attitude. The store interior takes a tangent from its ad with bold yet sexy typographic details. The interior was designed by none other than the visual scientists at Why Not Associates. Having the pleasure of visiting their office a couple years ago in London, the team explained their background and true love of experimentation with both photography and typography. While the ad pictured was produced by DDB Paris, all the elements of the Nike Paris launch are in sync in expression.

Clothing immerses in pleasurable visuals to create "high-end erotic fashion photography for the discerning voyeur."
NYC-based Milk Studio Gallery features "Diversity", an exhibition for the U.S. launch of S Magazine. While their heart is in Denmark, "the international full color glossy bi-annual magazine alludes the boundaries of mainstream fashion journals and peers through the gap where superlative fashion photography meets sensual, evocative and unbridled image making - then leaves the door wide open.". Though I rarely throw it out there, some of these are risque' enough for a NSFW tag.
S Magazine's "Diversity" Exhibition Launch Party is set for November 21 @ 8pm at the Milk Studio Gallery.
A bit of ass kicking with cleats, Umbro proves its boots can stand up to the test of S&M.
Violent femmes take on toned back-sides, for the "It Hurts" campaign. While any excuse to "innocently" glance at tight leather wrap-arounds is welcome, the photography speaks louder to the act than the shoe. Perhaps Umbro was hoping to garner up the same amount of anticipation for their shoes as some may have before a little S&M play time.

Precarious positions promote homegrown pleasure.
Offering self-pleasure techniques for those wanting the thrill of wet tshirt contests from the comfort of their own home, Old Khaki provides an array of visual demonstrations. Agency FoxP2's campaign shows the sexier side of South Africa. Claiming to be an advertising agency that creates mind-blowing symbolic objects that mostly have practical functions, FoxP2's other notable clients include the ever-so symbolic Wonderbra. Suggestion to replace 'practical' with 'recreational' is currently under debate.

In an attempt to breathe life back into the enjoyment of film, Scott Alan Johnson shows that you don't need an attention span to shoot analog.
I've always enjoyed shooting analog for the 'wtf' surprises you discover in the dark room. This Flickr set is similar to that kind of moment, in that all I could utter was "Wow...". Be on the prowl, ladies, the squirrel-whisperer is a-vail-a-ble according to his Flickr profile!

Missing a phrase by a word or two in the name of high fashion, Harvey Nichols captivates an audience with their off-beat allure. The series explores both attraction and intimidation through concepts interlaced with sexual anticipation. Pop the top to some bug spray, that tingling sensation may warrant a swat.
