Well, you know that Joke about old people and cobwebs


The Pope shared the podium with an eight-legged friend over the weekend. We’re unsure if this has anything to do with signs of the oncoming apocalypse but, we’ll let you know if it does.  2012 you wild card, you always keep it interesting.  Video evidence after the jump.

blu at deitch studios L.I.C.

There must be a wonderful view with binoculars looking East, from the UN towards Queens.  On the River side of Deitch Studios, Blu has painted a gigantic yellow mural of endless machinery.  Deitch could be seen as a factory of sorts, no doubt.

KMFDM Back At It

I have always been a fan of KMFDM, German industrial at its finest. Tonight, they are playing NYC at The Gramercy Theatre at 9pm. We thought we should take a look at the real amazing work of Aiden Huges, who has worked with KMFDM creating a visual voice for their music.
Check out the video for ” A Drug Against War” after the jump illustrated by Aiden for KMFDM.

looking for the right things to say?


Just stumbled on this gem. “The Instant Art Critique Phrase Generator” is very simple, and rudimentarily executed but, sometimes that’s all you need. Type in a 5 digit number (which has nothing more to do than select the phrases to string together), click the button and BAM, you sound smart…or full of it. It’s fun try it out.

Karman Vortices


Check out But does it Float, a site with a collection of amazing overhead shots of natural and unnatural events. From devastated forest to waterways, definitely worth the look. Here’s the lowdown on this photo….

“Each of these swirling clouds is a result of a meteorological phenomenon known as a Karman vortex. These vortices appeared over Alexander Selkirk Island in the southern Pacific Ocean. Rising precipitously from the surrounding waters, the island’s highest point is nearly a mile (1.6 km) above sea level. As wind-driven clouds encounter this obstacle, they flow around it to form these large, spinning eddies.”

Mad Greek

Coming and going from Vegas you see the god damn signs for the Mad Greek so many god damn times it makes you want to blow up the god damn place. Then you see a sign for the Strawberry Milkshake and since I’m a fruity ass mother fucker one day I decided to stop. I got that shit drive through, shit was like $8 as big as an elephants dick (unerect). Obviously I enjoyed it. Coming home from Vegas I needed a strawberry mother fucken milkshake, we went in this time, the inside of the Greek is a wonderful experience in itself. And you don’t know shit about the Greek until you’ve run all up in his shit.

Lunchtime Laughter

Artorialust: Milkin’ it

Last night saw the Enablist at Milk Studios without a photographer, so a crappy point and shoot and a bunch of champagne kind of guided the way.

the rise of street fare

It’s old news but, the elevation of the street vendor is everywhere.  This weekend, “The Vendys” will determine the champion of NY Street Food. Why do you care? Well, if you’re looking for something to eat today at lunch, here is the list and most of the locations of NYC’s finalists! If you had any thought of going to the actual event, don’t bother it’s already sold out!
