Better Without Burners

Burning Man did officially start yesterday. The creator of this site may 1) be onto something or 2) be a bitter asshole with no life. Hmm.

The Solution

to all of my problems, sue the Vatican for $150k citing some thievery that happened 7 centuries ago. They would just hand me the money considering these guys are trying to get 1,000,000 times that.

Usain Bolt

Michael Phelps is cool and all but do what you need to do (download Silverlight, ugh.) to see the 100m race that Usain Bolt destroyed. Also note how stoked the silver and bronze medalists were.

The Weev guy is a dick for sure but I thoroughly enjoyed this NYT mag article. Weev's Livejournal can be found here. is pretty interesting as well.

3 specific things that struck me:
1. Weev bounces in a chauffeured Rolls Phantom (page 5)
2. His favorite Trolls were Zeno of Elea, Socrates and Jesus (page 5)
3. He is wearing a Jeremy Fish T-Shirt in the banner pic (page 1).

Shawn Barber at Billy Shire

Check the Billy Shire site for images of the Shawn Barber show that opened a bit ago. The portrait of Kat Von D sold for a cool $40k. This one is my favorite.

Hillman Curtis

I forgot to post this awhile back. Hillman Curtis updated his website. One of the commercials featured on the site has a familiar Engineer turned Designer storyline.

I was looking for some stock photos last night and stumbled upon the work of Henry Darger. I guess the guy is super famous in the world of outsider art and really ingrained in pop culture. Never heard of him.
