In 1878 lady liberty was not exactly all together. The massive head was on display at the Paris International Exhibition. Attendees to the exhibition could pay to walk around in her head. You have to admit its kind of freaky,very Planet of the Apish.
There seems to be a bit of a revival of industrial music these days, Pigface, KMFDM, and the Revolting Cocks are all out touring. Maybe it was a bad time for Trent to take a break? If you’re in the Chicago area tonight and have tickets to the Revolting Cocks show, you will get a little treat. Al Jourgensen (Ministry), joins them on stage as the special guest. He will also be with the band as they play NYC’s Irving Plaza on the 17th. After party is going to be at Crash Mansion. (btw, I really hate the name of that place, sounds like a video game)

Just the other day, a couple of us were talking about converting a loft space into a series of forts. Who knew others would be thinking along the same lines? Booooooom’s contest is simple and ends really soon (October 12th):
“Where The Wild Things Are is filled with references to building a world out of things from your everyday life and that’s exactly what we want you to do!
We want you to create a fort! Use garbage bags, tree branches, tablecloths, prosthetic limbs, wood, gold, whatever you got!”
So you have the weekend to get lifted and make something fun. Doesn’t sound that bad, right? More info on submission and all of that jang, here.

It’s all about the 60’s. China is celebrating 60 years of communism and Onitsuka Tiger is celebrating its 60th anniversary as well. We recently received a copy of Onitsuka Tiger’ 60 year celebration collectors box set, I guess you could call it that. It features this amazing laser cut wrapper, and what looks like a hand bound book celebrating the history of the shoe through its advertising, culture, arts, and lifestyle. This is a huge must for any collector! Here are some of the pages to wet your appetite.

Steven Seagal, the man behind the classics Hard to Kill, and Above the Law, has a reality show Lawman. The show airs this December on A&E, so you have not missed anything yet. Lawman, according to the trailer centers around Seagal, a 20 year veteran on the force… I guess he has been a cop for over 20 years? During the filming of a movie, the Sheriff brought Steven in to help train the officers, and it went so well they deputized Steven and he has been a cop ever since. So follow Steven on the streets of Jefferson as he saves the town from evil drug running environmental criminals trying to hijack a train with a nuclear bomb on it. In Steven’s words, “It’s not a Job it’s an Adventure”. One last thing, if you like Steven Seagal you also must like Sausage sandwiches…great ad placement!
