Happy birthday Wong Kar-Wai, it’s my fourth time watching Chungking Express and i still love this scene so much.
April 7, 1983: For the 50th anniversary of the “King Kong” film, a 3,000-pound model was being hoisted onto the Empire State Building once again, but “with a blowout in an armpit” and other problems, the nylon replica ape was a laughingstock, or a disappointment, but not a terror, for millions of metropolitan area residents.

In the 1950s, Blake began using ‘found letters’ or commercial lettering in his work, as well as printed materials such as comic strips and advertising texts, allying himself with sign painters, decorators, and commercial artists. Declaring himself a ‘pop’ artist, he joined the ranks of Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg and Rosenquist, in their provocation of the fine art establishment. He is famous for the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely hearts club band.
