The New episodes will air both the Live and On Demand sections of the site on Thursdays at 8pm ET. If you have something better to do that day, you can watch it on Friday, anytime, the post the clips following the show.

Designer Phil Cuttance created these little gems. Its very kidrobot in a weird way. The concept, traditional animal trophies made out of poly resin and are 7 cm wide and 11 cm high (2.75″ x 3.5″) and extend out roughly 3″ or 8 cm. Phil’s hangers take the trophy notion and add a little twist. Whichever animal you choose, it always comes in a set of 2 – with every front bit you will get the rear as well. They are made out of poly resin and are 7 cm wide and 11 cm high (2.75″ x 3.5″) and extend out roughly 3″ or 8 cm. Via Charles and Maria. They will cost you a mere $50.00
According to Geekologie this is the best thing since sliced bread. Now let me ask you… who’s going to invent the scented spray paint. It would take graffiti to a whole nutha level…. Possible scratch and sniff graffiti.
Musician portraits have always been one of Shepard Fairey‘s staples. This week a portrait of Bob Mould of old Husker Du fame, surfaces. Words from the man himself.
“Bob Mould was the guitar player and co-songwriter of Husker Du, one of the most progressive hardcore/indy bands of the 80’s . Originally one of the most successful bands on SST records, they were one of the first American indie bands to sign to a major label and are credited with paving the way for bands like Sonic Youth, The Pixies, and Nirvana. I borrowed Husker Du’s Zen Arcade album from a friend my 10th grade year and quickly collected the rest of their catalog. I especially recommend their album Flip Your Wig. After Husker Du broke up Bob went on to form Sugar and now performs solo. His new album District Line is awesome.”

Artist David Horvitz has come up with one of those genius internet ideas that makes you pissed off that you didn’t think of it. For various amounts of money, he will do various things for you. For example, the picture above is of star sand and in his words
“If you give me $1,626 I will go to the small Okinawan island called Iriomote and send you an envelope filled with star-sand (don’t worry, I’ve been there before, I know where to go). I will send it from there.”

Mark Brown at The Guardian gives a great video tour of a large cache of Banksy pieces that are in the underground parking facility of the Swiss Embassy in London. If only those great Barry McGee / Margaret Kilgallen (plus Shepard Fairey, Faile, David Choe and lot of other street art) pieces in the LACMA garage could have ended up with the same fate.

I hadn’t the slightest clue that something like this actually existed in our world. I know that some people like art and some don’t. Each person has their own taste, that is for sure. But to be anxious about purchasing pieces, come on. The New York Times writes about such things in February 28th’s paper.
In my personal experience, I have bought on whims (like one individual mentioned) and never hung the art. But with these pieces I just wait for the right person who I can gift them to. Art is a great gift. Read the article and if you do truly need advice on buying a piece, email me, I can be your consultant.
