The Brooklyn Museum has this wicked awesome 20′ pinata shaped like Andy Warhol’s head on display.  At the Brooklyn Ball, held at the museum on April 22nd art lovers will be able to bash Andy’s head open and enjoy the edible bits that fall out. Oh, Mr Warhol your fifteen minutes are nearly up and we can’t wait to devour your delicious, delicious, brains (insert additional joke about art lovers being zombies?).

A group of vandals who call themselves the “Salty Knits” have been decorating random trees are other objects in Cape May, New Jersey with hand-knitted yarn sleeves.  Apparently this has offended some members of the community who have been tearing down their work.  I don’t know about you, but if I woke up tomorrow and found a yarn sleeve on my tree I’d have the biggest smile on my face all day.  And don’t you worry about those “Salty Knits” they won’t let dissenters slow them down, they’ll just keep on knitting and purling and knitting and purling…

So, you’ve read all the Twilight books.  You religiously watch all the episodes of True Blood.  And it might be that vampires make the perfect boyfriend (they’re so moody and romantic, plus they’ve had hundreds of years to perfect their skills in the boudoir), or maybe that’s just what the vampires want us to think.  Best to be prepared, just in case, doncha think?  Why not buy yourself a vampire hunting kit?  Just to be on the safe side.  A modern girl is responsible for her own protection, after all.

This nifty 200-year-old vampire killing kit was recently sold at an auction in Natchez, Mississippi.  It only cost $14,850.  A steal at twice the price!

This would really make taking the TTC the better way.  An excellent way to make waiting for the bus more fun.

From AFP:

“GENEVA (AFP) — A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled “Complex Shit”, is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children’s home, said museum director Juri Steiner.

The inflatable turd broke the window at the children’s home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said. The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if the piece would be put back on display.”

And other times it’s just my sofa.
