I have one of these, and I can never commit to anything to download from the apple app store, until now! I just found this site “what’s on iphone“. It is dedicated to reviewing and telling you about new apps on the iphone. They also do a crapp app of the week. Check it out, I just downloaded NYTraffic Cam.

“said to be the largest gold statue to be made in the world since the time of Ancient Egypt” If ‘Siren’ looks anything like Quinn’s Sphinx, it will be awesome.

When we reported on Banksy’s new work in New Orleans on Wednesday, Momo left an interesting comment referencing “The Gray Ghost, or Fred Radtke.” It seems Momo did some work back in 2005, spoofing the infamous buffer. I am now able to understand the depth to Banksy’s work when looking at some of the pieces referencing the Gray Ghost and it seems Radtke has also taken to Banksy’s tribute, by wiping out the graffiti that the painted ghost was actually buffing (See the photo above with Radtke inset).
Some have considered Radtke’s work a blight on society, some have praised it, and some have called it art. I think he has a screw loose. There is a great, in depth article on him from 2000 on Best of New Orleans, and to pull my favorite chunk from it referencing his craziness,
“Why did he paint the street?” one of them asks. “Now he’s painting the sidewalk.” Radtke and his roller catch all four corners of the sidewalk and then he heads toward the house with the Crown Royal shrine. Melvin Paul sits back down on the steps. “I’ve lived here in the Seventh Ward for 15 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”
So, what I have learned this week is that the Gray Ghost is all-city and Banksy’s street art is even smarter than I previously thought.
We are always up for new suggestions and just received one from a new reader in Italy. Filippo Minelli is a conceptual-artist with a graffiti-background who dedicated the last 10 years to urban communication. Click below to see more of his work, and to learn more about him click here.
