Brad Pitt, maybe our only hope

Celebrity do-gooder Brad Pitt has launched the first phase of his “Make it Right” project with the aim of building environmentally friendly homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward. In case you were wondering about the pink, no it’s not just because Zahara really digs that colour:

While filming a movie in New Orleans, Brad Pitt noticed a pink fabric house that was being used as part of the set. He perceived the visual potency of pink houses as a metaphor. Working together with GRAFT, the idea was born to merge film and architecture into an installation that would bring immediate global attention to a pervasive local issue.

The scenes within the assembly create emotive storyboards containing perspectives rich with history and memories. Like a tangram puzzle, the components of each house lay haphazard at the installation’s commencement. It is only through monetary donations that these pink placeholders will become reassembled, registering the effects of a collective consciousness, ultimately enabling the construction of 150 real homes.”

When that project has achieved its goals, hopefully Brad can then turn his attention towards Los Angeles which has long been derided as the “homeless capital of America.” His determination to clean up will be a welcome breath of fresh air, unlike some of his peers who still insist on being part of problem.

    As a refugee New Orleanian, I applaud Brad Pitt for taking the initiative to not only “help the problem,” but to make it better in the first place. Rebuilding New Orleans to its former glory, while making it more environmentally friendly? I’ll donate to that.

    It looks like somebody let Christo go wild.

    I love the zoolander reference in Brad’s photo tag. It’s the details like that that make this blog priceless.

    I don’t care what anyone says, Brad Pitt is still hot for his age – even WITH that beard!
