Julien Donkey-Boy

From Harmony Korine's 1990 flick titled 'Julien Donkey-Boy'. I waited 21 years to watch this cult flick. I could've waited another 21. I know that I'm about to catch some shit from fans of Korine's but, I wouldn't recommend this to someone unless I really hated them...hated them, a lot!
I will say the only part of the film that I felt remotely excited by was the part where I took a #32 rubber band, pulled it taught & let it fly up against my exposed ballsack, repeatedly.

Fujiya & Miyago "Ankle Injuries"

Although 'Ankle Injuries' by Fujiya & Miyagi is a catchy tune, this is one of those instances when a video outshines the song. The entire video is animated with the use of multi-colored dice...out-f'ing-standing!

Clown Soldier

Clown Soldier [one of my longtime favorites] is a Brooklyn-based street artist who is easily recognized by his collaged wheat pastes of larger than life sized Clown Soldiers. His mixed media pastings are usually a combo of screen print and hand-painted detailing.
Clown soldier has recently Flickr'd a meticulously detailed CMY [minus the 'K' in CMYK] hand painted canvas...and I can't wait to see it in person!
