Bootleg Toys by “The Sucklord”

Have you ever wanted to get your hands on a pink Stormtrooper or a Sleestak in a business suit? The Sucklord has you covered. Meanwhile, watch this video where he talks about villains and such.

“The Sucklord” by Joey Garfield from ghostrobot on Vimeo.

From Suckadelic’s website: “SUCKADELIC is an evil arts organization specializing in Bootleg Toys, illicit remix records, and duffed out Supervillain Soap operas and is universally regarded as the sleaziest brand in the game. Ruled from a hidden Sweatshop by the intergalactic criminal and cosmic playboy, the SUPER SUCKLORD, Suckadelic has continued to pump highly addictive pop culture crap into the veins of willing victims since 1997.”

“Birdman” Is Proof That Ultra-Long Takes Are a Nefarious Plot Devised By Satan

birdman_a

So, the Oscars happened. The biggest buzz generated by the show seems to have less to do with the actual movies and more to do with griping about Neil Patrick Harris’s performance as host and the fact that Joan Rivers was left out of an homage reel. Let’s face it, the whole thing is kind of ridiculous. If someone told me about an annual event where people wear outfits worth thousands of dollars to sit through hours of boring speeches and maybe be awarded little statues of naked men with no faces, I would think it was some kind of twisted initiation process for a frat house or a cult—not the most prestigious award ceremony for the entire motion picture industry.

So who won? Birdman did, and in a big way. It won so many Oscars, they might as well have let the producers walk away with the coke sniffing conceptual art Oscar made by the “Banksy of LA.” I for one am a bit disappointed that Boyhood didn’t get its due (as is a writer at Slate who wrote a viral article arguing in favor of the movie).… Read the rest

Australia’s Temple Of Weird

Last week we told you about Lonnie Hammargren’s Museum of the Weird in Los Angeles. This week we go down under to tell you about Australia’s Temple Of Weird and its shit machine, courtesy of Roads & Kingdoms:

Standing outside Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) the first thing that hits you is the smell of manure.

It’s a biting cold day when we disembark from the MONA ferry, push past the crush of tourists, and walk up the imposing steps emerging into, unexpectedly, a tennis court. Straight ahead is a metallic, boxy building that emits a faint fecal order. I enter thinking it is the toilet (perhaps with a sewage leak?) only to find the ticket counter.

Visiting MONA is like peering through the looking glass. Deep down in the museum’s cavernous underbelly—inside that mirrored box building—sits Wim Delvoye’s cloaca machine, otherwise known as “the shit machine.” The Belgium artist’s vast array of whirring tubes and bags mimic the workings of the human digestive system.

Wolfgang Grasse (1930 – 2008) – Temporal Misift

Wolfgang Grasse (1)

“Wolfgang Grasse is a temporal misfit, with artistic skills and attitudes that stand out, in our time, as a witch or an alchemist stands out… his work can be traced back to Bosch, Bruegel and Max Beckman.” — Art News

The world that Grasse created on his canvas is more than fantastic, it is magic. He was the wise-old magician. Through his paintings, he cast a spell on the viewer and in that perpetual moment of truth, revealed two thousand years of human degradations.

His painting possesses a haunting menace which appropriately reflect the moral and social values.

Wolfgang Grasse was born in Dresden, Germany, in 1930. After private artistic training first by his grandfather, Feidrich Grasse, and then later studying in Italy, he returned to a partitioned post-war East Germany. There he was imprisoned for his cartoons crtical of Soviet propaganda. He was sentenced to serve 25 years in prison.  After serving 8 years of this sentence, he was granted an amnesty and released.

The Liminal Spaces Part 2: Hidden Architecture

confused-dream-with-life

Or “how to write while you sleep.”

Part 1: Get Creative: The Liminal State

Most people understand writing as a function of the conscious mind. You have an intention, you sit down and express it best you can.

However, the actual writing process is far more convoluted than that, and there are many “off-label” uses for the lesser understood parts of consciousness, where writing is involved. Nowhere is this more true than with the long-form creative process, which is more like a marathon than a sprint, and more like a surrealist “drift” than even a marathon.

Indeed, many of these byways, alleys and side-paths lead us through a meandering labyrinth, and we may even care to engage the physical process of one foot before the other.

Ambiguity is the labyrinth’s central nature. It is always unstable, changing its personality and ours as we change perspective. … Like a psychic nuclear reactor, the labyrinth generates creative emotional and psychic processes in whatever guise it appears.

Building an Artistic Community with the Warren Arts Center – Free Radical Media Podcast

In this episode, the Free Radical team talks with Adam, Carl, and James of the Warren Arts Center, an art collective based in Warren, OH, USA. We discussed their plans to build and nurture a vibrant artistic community, including fighting gentrification and navigating local economies and politics. We also talked Dada, photography, the meaning of Art itself and the ways in which a strong group of artists can help their community and society at large.

“The artist’s task is to save the soul of mankind; and anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because of the artists, who are self-selected, for being able to journey into the Other, if the artists cannot find the way, then the way cannot be found.” – Terence McKenna

Mysterious Space Seed ‘may be proof aliens are watching us and created life on Earth’

University of Buckingham

 

Jonathan Symcox via The Mirror:

Scientists in the UK say this microscopic metal globe could be proof that aliens are watching us.

Balloons sent 27km into the stratosphere to collect debris came back with the object, no bigger than the width of a human hair.

Professor Milton Wainwright, leader of the joint study by the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology and University of Sheffield, said the structure is made from titanium and vanadium metals and has a biological “gooey” substance oozing from it.

Scientists believe it could contain genetic material used to propagate alien life on Earth.

“It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre,” he told the Daily Express website.

“We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium.
