Sometimes you just gotta' kick back..

This video is super weird. But it's probably because it's a performance piece and I usually fidget through performance pieces (truth). It's interesting though because of how it completely recontextualizes (is that a word?) the idea of google glass as a brand. I guess technology just like any product being sold ideally employs powerful creative imagery to make their stuff not look boring. FKA Twigs is definitely in a league of her own, embodying not only a powerful individual artist identity and voice, but actually finessing this huge line between performance art and a versatile "polished" image that is commercially appealing. FKA Twigs definitely intrigues me as I think she is one of a few young female music artists who are redefining the evolution of modern r&b to me. Of course the music she makes isn't completely genre specific but what she creates definitely showcases a myriad of talent and vision that goes beyond music.


Came across this article while surfing the web at 6:00AM. Between the Ebola articles, World Series coverage, false reports on Banksy's apparent identity, I've run into an article about a Finland based artist who takes "selfies" to the next level. Obviously I think they are rad. Would I frame a photo of hers? Probably not. But the execution and thought behind her photographs are nothing short of awesome.

Key Figures In CIA-Crack Cocaine Scandal Begin To Come Forward

Posted: Updated: 
LOS ANGELES -- With the public in the U.S. and Latin America becoming increasingly skeptical of the war on drugs, key figures in a scandal that once rocked the Central Intelligence Agency are coming forward to tell their stories in a new documentary and in a series of interviews with The Huffington Post.
More than 18 years have passed since Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb stunned the world with his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series investigating the connections between the CIA, a crack cocaine explosion in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, and the Nicaraguan Contra fighters -- scandalous implications that outraged LA’s black community, severely damaged the intelligence agency's reputation and launched a number of federal investigations.

Great track suggested by Dogbone!

Viral video of a news anchor quitting her job live on tv. Must have felt really good to walk off that stage.
