Luna Park was kind enough to send over images of a newly installed, hand-carved prayer wheel by Faile on the street in Brooklyn. These were first displayed during their Lost in Glimmering Shadows show in the UK. to much amazement. The dopest intricacy is that the top portion spins! Nice job guys!

We all know Michael Jackson is crazy…. and Julian’s was going to auction off all his Neverland memorabilia. As you may or may not know, a last minute deal was made between the auction house and the King of Pop and the goods were pulled. We found this little story on LAWeekly with a great video by videothing.

When you get home from work and plug your computer into your tv, go watch this. The Gorillaz documentary “Bananaz” is now live in its entirety on Babelgum.com. Check out the entire thing now
“Bananaz is an un-sanitized, free-wheeling documentary film spanning from 2000-2006, taking down the virtual walls of Gorillaz in an intimate, honest and often hilarious account of the working relationship between Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett and their extraordinary creative process. The documentary reveals the creation of this virtual band from first drawings, animations, music and the musicians, to the faces behind the voices of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs, and showcases appearances from many of those who occasionally pass through this virtual band including Dennis Hopper, De la Soul, Ibrahim Ferrer, Dangermouse, Dan the Automator, D12, Bootie Brown and Neneh Cherry.”

I have been meaning to write about this one for a while now. If you’re on a mac(intel) and watch most of your entertainment online, you will love this application (as most do, they have over 500,000 users so far). Boxee is like a set top system that allows you to watch and listen to everything on your media library and !! it lets you access many streaming sites and networks. Like HULU, CNN, Pandora, MTV, Joost all through a “Front Row” experience but better. I have to tell you once you start down this word everything changes.
Oh I almost forgot, it also allows you to share with other “Boxee” users what you’ve watched (be careful) recommendations, and it also lets you vote shows up or down. I cannot stop praising this one. It also works with the apple remote, so you can sit on your ass and browse. Now if it only allowed me to buy the episodes off HBO and Showtime…. I would never need cable again….
Give it a try.

His dour expression is silkscreened and heightened by glitter facial features. Land marooned, orphaned and filled with neglect. No fun at all to play with.
