  • Michael Faber reviews Alan Moore/Melinda Gebbie's Lost Girls: "15-year-old Dorothy, convinced she will die as her house is buffeted by a tornado, decides that she can "do what the heck I liked", and frigs herself to a climax that's surreally mingled with the twister's impact. Post-orgasm, Dorothy's world looks forever changed, an Oz of rainbow sexuality,"

  • NSFW: Wired have a slideshow of some new and really fucked up pictures of Abu Ghraib. (*edit* EXTREME WARNING FOR THE SECOND PICTURE) Some of these have been seen before, but it begs the questions -when is this going to end? What have our governments done? Who the fuck are these "soldiers"?[via]

  • I never have any time to read Slashdot, it's not really a great site for speed browsing, and then it just clutters my RSS feeds making me feel guilty. Enter Alterslash, not only condensing titles, but the comments! Win! Although, apparently not popular with the original Slashdot guys. [via somewhere here]
  • PingMag: The Ghetto (building converted to a skate/graffiti paradise in Japan's Shin-Okubo: "Graffiti is like a tattoo the city gives itself. It is up to the city to decide what direction it will take…") and a profile of artist Mari Kubota, who reminds me of my favorite artist Junko Mizuno only a bit more ethereal. Less stimulants, more hallucogenics.
  • WhoKilledBambi? profiles the artist Milk (not the Bristol artist, she's based in Arizona). I hate MySpace for anything but music (and even then, 99% of profiles are hideous to navigate and load), I'm hoping she has a website or a Flickr somewhere - or at least upcoming.

  • Porcelain soda cans by Lei Xue. Unfortunately, I can't find a website for more information about him/her, but this work is stunning.
  • Urban Legend ER, more original comedy from CollegeHumor. FYI - I link to videos through poeTV a lot because the comments make me laugh, and they're the best filter for videos. I can spend hours on that site.
  • And last night I fell in love with Faux Real, a feminist blog of sorts.

  • YouTube: Through the Dragon's Eye. Episode 1 of the best ever children's school programming by the BBC. My teachers showed this series to us when I was about 8/9 years old, and we loved it so much.
  • You know there's a problem when Holy Moly takes a stand against the paparazzi and are refusing to show photos of car chases, celebrities with their children, people in distress or not "on duty": "let's face it, when one of the biggest names in paparazzi jacks it in due to ethics and morals and the world's biggest popstar gets her knickers photographed by 30 people an hour after being released from a mental institute, you know there's a problem on the shop floor." They're not, however, counting those celebrities that actively court the paparazzi and inform them as to where they'll be eating etc etc.

So please seach your archives and attics and reactivate your Instant Cameras. This is the slamming comeback of Instant Photo Fun." [extra bonus happy fun: stuartwoodman on Flickr]
  • Flickr: Detroit is beautiful, any asshole with a camera can take amazing pictures. I feel that way about Bristol sometimes, when you lump age, decay and strong human nature together, great photography is like breathing.

Inside the Exhibition

Nick Walker's exhibition at Los Angeles' Carmichael Gallery opened on Saturday. I'll save my thoughts for another time and let his work speak for itself!

Englishmen in RainEnglish Summer

You can see a few more pictures over at Flickr. One thing I've noticed is that La Brea Avenue is a haven for street art. Lots of modern arty galleries, stickered parking meters and paste ups. I'll be going back there in the future!

  • Did you know that Kanye West has a blog? And it's actually a pretty decent blog, not oversaturated in selfpromotion? Mostly pictures and minimal commentary. You know deep down he's really an internet geek. [Example: "This baby carriage is not covered with diamonds or any other precious metal but is just equipped with rear changing table, so the $14,899 price tag is not justified."]
