The Chairs of NPR

The year was 1988 and NPR’s office was in shambles, or according to Bob Boilen, it was an “utterly horrifying ugly filthy mess.” Also, there were typewriters. And terrible chairs.

Adventures in Spray Painting

Go With The Flow is a group show currently on view at The Hole that explores the use of sprayed paint by 19 contemporary artists. Ranging from atomized paint traditionally used on automotives, to airbrush and aerosol, the show’s works come to life on walls covered in plastic sheeting that one can only assume were placed to mimic the environment where the art was created, and not for cleaning up a Patrick Bateman type slaughter. Go With The Flow runs through August 23, 2014.

Pot News for Those Who Partake
 
Ladies, forget about Astroglide. It’s all about weed lube

Though he didn’t slip out, Canada’s self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Pot’ has been released from US Prison.

Ironically, even after calling for the legalization of pot, the NY Times still administers drug tests for it

So, should the NCAA keep bothering with weed tests too?

And we all know that the legal pot trade could be big business. And with all that potential marketshare, most big corporations are against it

But at least the industry now has an armored truck to move all that legal weed money around

New Nazca Lines

nazca-lines

After a recent sandstorm blew topsoil off of some hills in the Chincha Valley in Southern Peru, a pilot noticed “a snake (approximately 196 feet in length), a bird, a camelid (perhaps a llama) and some zig-zag lines” on the desert floor. While these new findings have yet to be validated by archaeologists, the other mysterious geoglyphs and lines in the desert have been thought to be everything from maps and advertisements for people coming off of the surrounding mountains to an alien airport with runways for UFOs.

The money involved in designing, developing, and producing these Adidas x KZK ZXZ 750 RG 84-Lab ‘Mud’ shoes would have been better spent on hiring someone to strategically plant dog shit in front of the doors of those who actually buy into this concept.
