Found almost a kilometer below the surface of the ocean, this hazelnut-sized marine worm lives, breathes, and floats around looking exactly like a tiny, perfectly plump rear end.
The species was discovered floating freely through the ocean in 2006 by a remotely operated vehicle off the coast of California. This little submerged research robot scooped up a handful of pigbutt worms, and Karen Osborn, a marine biologist from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, got to analyze and name them. So she called them Chaetopterus pugaporcinus, which in Latin literally means “worm that looks like a pig’s rump”.
This otherworldly purplish bubble creature with its pink, puckered mouth is unlike any other species of worm ever found. In trying to figure out what the pigbutt worm’s deal is, Osborn compared her specimens to several other known species of marine worm. She was able to find some physical similarities between her pigbutt worms and the larvae – or young – of a large family of marine worms worms called Chaetopteridae, so perhaps, she thought, her pigbutt worms were in their juvenile form?
Malcom Middleton & David Shrigley’s “Story Time” is not for the kids.
For the next couple of months, in collaboration with the upcoming film A Most Violent Year, we are publishing a culture site about New York City in 1981. From the East Village to Esplanade, we’ll tell some of the stories that shaped the year, and add in some pop culture to the mix for the fun of it. So check it out here and enjoy, there’ll be new stuff up daily.

Christos Katsiaouni was in the mix last weekend when Creative Time celebrated their 2014 Fall Ball at Neuehouse with two consecutive nights of partying. Friday night saw 200 overnight guests arrive for a sleepover featuring all night fun including video projections by Marco Brambilla and SPACE PROGRAM Rice & Beans by Tom Sachs. Saturday night, the energy continued with a dance party over two levels of the Flatiron event and office space. With nonstop energy flowing for 48 hours, whether anyone actually got any sleep is up for debate.
