DERREN BROWN UNCOVERING THE SCAMS IN SCIENCE : THE SUPER NATURAL, UFOS ETC.
"Everyone is fascinated by the paranormal. Subjects like UFOs, Tarot cards and ghosts excite people worldwide. And behind it all there’s a massive industry. There are books, magazines, TV shows, live events, even psychic phone lines and websites all profiting from our fascination with the unexplained. The paranormal industry makes millions of pounds every year. And yet there’s actually no solid scientific evidence that anything paranormal exists. Are we all just falling for a big psychic scam?
We have all had the experience of absolutely believing something which turned out to be untrue. That so-and-so hated us, that we were about to die, that we had our wallet with us when we left the house. Sadly, how deeply we believe something has no necessary correlation with how true it is.
Derren and his team have released 7 hoax videos which appear to be paranormal phenomena. In fact they’re all based upon real scientific principles and there’s nothing paranormal about them at all. Over the past few months that hoax footage has been posted over the internet in the attempt to find out if people would accept the footage as genuine or question it in an attempt to discover the real truth.
Can you find the hoaxes before we reveal the secret science behind scams?" - derrenbrown.co.uk
Lady Gaga has released the video for her new song "Bad Romance"
Thumbs up for taking on avant garde Alexander Mcqueen outfits and not only is it a fashion visual feast but the song is pretty catchy. I like the fact that the video is a little crazy with so many nice elements involved but one part in particular catches my eye, Gaga seems to have one scene where it looks like it should be a shoot set up for photographer David Lachapelle (who is amazing). Worth a watch.
This portrait represents resistance to material goods and staying true to ones self. This could be considered/ viewed as images in the models mind. His world, his vision, his thoughts.
Left - The giraffe on the left represents the 'gang leader' of different social groups, the people, the rest of us. This is represented by scale but does not embody the human form therefore it adds a different level of thinking/standard when compared to the centre model.
Right - This represents the material goods, things that corrupt, things that the model believe that it doesn't make a person complete. LOVE, MATERIAL GOODS, MONEY et al.
Centre - This represents the models alter ego, he told me that if he was an animal he would be a cat and i decided to choose a lion to represent him as i believe that lions are intelligent, natural born leaders and strong minded with great instinct. He stands proud and self assured with his ideas on life and what he wants.
The barriers represent his inner feelings towards the outsider world, he won't be tempted from anything that's to the left or right of him, The yellow box reinforce the line that things must not cross.
Nature, eutopia and merging the aesthetics of sophistication from
France and innovation from Great Britain. This design was influenced by
the two individual countries fashion styles (France - Classic and well
known designers // Chanel & Great Britain - Young innovative edgy
designers // Gareth Pugh) and inspired by the concept of 'a whole new
world'. I pictured a place where people had the opportunity to have a
fresh start, a place where it's completely white washed and ready for
someone to make their artistic mark to brighten it up. The focus is on
the aesthetics of simplicity and clean lines. Colour concept: Black and
white represents the classic side and the bold splash of color
represents the edgy modern side.

FAIRY TALE IDEA.
Edward, an English poet from a small city in the midlands finds the most beautiful antique camera at a vintage fair on a sunny sunday afternoon. He takes the most breath taking photographs when he travels the world, these pictures shine like diamonds, the clarity is surreal. When Edward arrives back in England he decided to build a darkroom after watching a BBC documentary about the history of the pocket ensign camera. After a lot of struggling Edward manages to develop his stunning photographs in the solution he lovingly mixed himself, he clips his processed pictures on the line to dry with some old pegs. After a long bath, a cup of tea and his trusty company with the local evening newspaper, Edward decided it's time to head to bed and he anticipates the the morning. The photographs come to life, and just like smoke the photographs drift through the air and enter Edward's brain and create the most vivid and exciting dreams, in this dream he falls in love with a beautiful girl named Patricia and they end up getting married in the south of France where they grow old together. The camera is still in use till this day, but one thing has changed, there are now beautiful photographs of Edward and Patricia hand in hand and delicately placed on their mantlepiece.
I did a shoot tonight of a series of self portraits for one of my summer project ideas.
In this album
Sinead - I went to visit my best mate Sinead with a bottle of rose, we didn't finish the bottle by the end of the night which was a little strange seeing as we normally neck a few bottles and dance to David Bowie in her amazing red kitchen.
Millie - Sinead's dog, that i love. Might i add she has definitely got older since the last time I've seen her, I caught her out when she was scratching herself or generally being a dog.
Train - Heading to Nottingham to meet my mate Emma, we decided to go for a walk around in the city that offers some of the best vintage shops in the midlands.
Train - Still sat on the train heading to nottingham, I really liked how soft and nostalgic this image came out.
Lincoln sky - The clouds looked strange, the moon was out, a little banana shape that really stood out against the orange, purple and pink sky. (You can see a better image on the Summer diary part 1 entry) This was taken 15 minutes before my cab was on its way to pick me up and take me out to meet Shell and Ellie for a Thursday night out at SCY (The Cell) indie night. Weirdly enough i decided to wear white socks this night with rolled up skinny jeans, &what happened? MJ passed away that night, Also Glastonbury was running full force this week.
Emma will punch you - This was around 2pm, Emma and myself decided to go to a beer garden and purchase a jug of cocktails in the hope that it will cool us down from the skin burning devil heat that was testing my sanity. We caved in and hid under the shade, thank you to whoever gave me revolution coupons you saved our lives. I was, tipsy.
Shell - This was taken in KIND bar in lincoln, the Thursday night that MJ died, actually this was before we heard the news
Ellie, Shell and myself - The MJ moment, I was told by SMS that MJ had passed away, rumor had it at the time he was still in a coma but 10 seconds later we were told the king of pop had actually dived 6 feet under and popped his clogs. Captured in time, a moment we will never forget. "Where were you when MJ died?"
SCY - Ironically we went to SCY for a night of indie loving, MJ had died, my phone had ran out of battery and there was no one in the club but our local DJ Aron waving us in as obviously the poor man was playing music for, nobody. We paid and got in for 3 quid, lovely. 3 quid for a whole club, yes we were the only 3 in the whole club that night. Fantastic as it were we couldn't help but hate all the glastonbury festivalites at that particular moment in time seeing as it was our last night together before Shell and Ellie were moving back to Norwich. I got told i was ugly by a midget.
Ellie - Demonstrating the empty dance floor, we busted some groves and drank ourselves silly but the night was cut short and we were soon booted out.
Sakura - Hannah M and her mate, This was a rather interesting night to say the least. After i finished modeling for a photo shoot in Lincoln i went to meet Hannah and some others, turns out that Tristan was there too. We went to The Well for a drink and talked about university and how everyone else was doing. We then went to a club called Sakura, Tristan had gone and so had the rest and the only people that were left with me were my two mates in the photograph.
Tommy - This was taken by my best mate Duane, We went up the hill for a drink at The Well after helping him finish packing his stuff in his old flat. Before our little drinking session we had Chinese at his place and watched TV on the Internet and drank rose, the t-shirt i got earlier on the day from a bit of skirt and i had planned to wear for the evening didn't fit. It was stupidly stuffy on that night.
Strangers - Duane with 2 random people who i still don't know. they ended up talking to us when Duane and myself decided to go to LLOYDS bar in Lincoln (everywhere was closed and we were desperate to keep the night rolling). The 4 of us walked around Lincoln at 3am when LLOYDS closed, we went looking for the next place offering an alcoholic drink, massive fail. This was taken outside a chav club, the lighting was interesting but wasn't captured well. She was a funny girl, i think she has a thing with getting her tits out to strangers.
Duane - Duane in Lincoln posing up the steep hill, pretty deadly.
Myself - Sat down in Lincoln up the steep hill.
Lahore - An indian take away that didn't last very long.
Duane's house - A random fish tank that some idiot decided to dump at Duane's house, I was greeted with dried out pieces of cat shit on the floor when taking this picture.
My name is Tristan and I am alive - Tristan was a little hesitant at posing at first but he was happy to look into my camera.
This was taken at the well with a flash that would end a persons life if they suffered from epilepcy.
Copper's house - After dancing like a twat in Sakura, Hannah decided to take me and my new buddy to some coppers house, i still can't remember how i got there which is pretty worrying. One of the guys who lived there was lovely enough to make me a small leaf salad and a cuppa which was definitely most appreciated as i could feel the vodka eating away at my organs. Hannah and the copper vanished, you can imagine what they were up to, my male mate left in a taxi shortly after and i was there staring at a huge music collection of CDs. After some guy trying to 'educate me' in music i looked at my phone and promptly dialed for a cab to take me home, I had 4 hours until i had to be up and shove my crap in my dads car to take to loughborough. I had the most interesting conversation with the taxi man, he nicely dropped me 1 minute away from my house. I waited till his car went round the corner and without a beat i emptied my guts all over my street and almost on my new shoes. I jumped into bed with a banging head ache later to be woken up by my mother banging on my door telling me that i had to help out with boxing things up for the move.
