“Blood Bubbles”


People actually try to make other people feel guilty for using SodaStream, the Israeli bubble maker with a manufacturing plant in the occupied territory of the West Bank.

Could It Beeeee… Satan!


The New York-based Satanic Temple designed a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan to be placed at the Oklahoma state Capitol, right next to a Ten Commandments monument installed back in 2012. Not just a landmark, the “statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

A Mission Gone Wrong by Matthias Schwartz

Overseas, the U.S. approach to drugs still looks a lot like war. The D.E.A., assisted by the U.S. military, acts as an international police force, coordinating with foreign militaries through a network of offshore bases. Operation Anvil, like many of its predecessors, combined the legal framework of a police action with the hardware and the rhetoric of war. Honduras is often referred to as “downrange”; drug traffickers are “the enemy”; the Mosquito Coast is a “battlespace.” What is remarkable is how many times the U.S. has tried such militarized counter-narcotics programs and how long it has been apparent how little they amount to.

The Aspen Wall Posters


A collaboration between Hunter S. Thompson and Thomas W. Benton in 1970-1971. The two-sided posters were used for Thompson’s campaign run for Sheriff of Piktin County, Colorado in 1970, and featured art by Benton and writing by Thompson outlining his platform.

If Hunter S. Thompson had been elected, changes would’ve included:

  • Legalization of drugs on a recreational basis (although profiteering dealers would be prosecuted harshly.) Thompson did make a concession on the drugs issue – he promised that if elected, he would not eat mescaline whilst on duty.
  • “Rip up all city streets with jackhammers and sod the streets at once.”
  • Change the name Aspen to Fat City. This would prevent greed heads, land rapers, and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name ‘Aspen’. These swine should be fucked, broken, and driven across the land.”
  • It will be the general philosophy of the sheriff’s office that no drug worth taking shall be sold for money. My first act as sheriff will be to install on the sheriff’s lawn a set of stocks to punish dishonest dope dealers.”
