Illustrations by Jason Seiler

Via this blog post I came across an amazing artist – Jason Seiler.  Being an amateur photographer, I am not much into paintings.  I always thought that most paintings miss the details and accuracy of the photographs.  A lot of Jason Seiler’s art doesn’t have that problem.  Some of the images are breathtakingly similar to photographs and only the caricaturist distortion suggests that these are actually drawings.  Have a look at this image of Bill Murray, for example.

Or at this absolutely wonderful black and white portrait:

More images are available at Jason Seiler’s website and in his blog.  I’m an instant fan now.

Are they brothers or something?

As you might have noticed, I’ve seen a whole bunch of movies with Cedric the Entertainer recently. While watching all these movies I was thinking that he reminds me of someone. With every film the feeling of deja vu was growing stronger and my mind was working harder trying to figure it out. And finally – BOOM – I remember. He strongly reminds me of Martin Lawrence, who I haven’t seen at all recently.

The similiarities are so strong that I could easily confuse one with another. Of course, Cedric is a lot bigger and heavier than Martin, but that’s about the only difference. They talk the same, walk the same, have similar jokes, their funny faces are the same and they are very similar visually.

But they only time I can remember them together in the same film they looked very different. The film was “Big Momma’s House” where Martin played the leading role of special agent Malcolm Turner and Cedric played a rather episodical role of reverend.

On fame

Here is something for you to think over.

Al Pacino has 42 movies listed in his filmography at IMDB. These include filmed, filming, announced, pre- and post-production. Robert De Niro has 70. Sean Connery has 78. Anthony Hopkins has 98.

I’m sure you can easily remember a movie or two with any one of these guys.

And you probably have never heard of Ron Jeremy. And even his face looks very unfamiliar to you. Nevermind the fact that his filmography lists 918 movies. In most of these he played had one of the main roles.

Who is he you’re wondering? Well, he is number one American porn star. Or so they say…
