Jimmie Durham did this.

“‘Some collide, some escape’: This was the title of a 2005 exhibition of works by Jimmie Durham that was held in a former cow barn belonging to Berlin’s Humboldt-Universität. The barn had been a site of agricultural research in the days of socialism.
Durham opened … with a vegetarian performance – he ate a flower – and, in the university cow barn, revealed his artistic cosmos. On display were an old toothbrush among rotten apples, medical instruments adorned with feathers, egg shells, bones, pelts and a good deal more.”

Durham’s also got a lot in common with Elizabeth Warren, Ward Churchill, Jamake Highwater, Diane Fisher & Andrea Smith (whoever they are) and Cher, who all claim Cherokee ancestry with no proof whatsoever, possibly because that’s the only Native American tribe they’ve heard of. In truth, they’re all members of of the two largest modern Indian nations, the Newager and the Wanabi.

To pursue, obtain and accept special perks and creds based upon something that might or might not have happened to your personal ancestors is specious at best, but to invent your genealogy in order to take advantage of those arguably racist programs and boons is not only unethical but fraudulent.

I despise liars more than thieves.

BTW, I am an Afro-Elbonian-Azteca-Swede-Erie-Scots-Mongolian-Slav-Inuit-Baboso-Haole-American. Bring it, chuchas.

Saturday Matinee – Wagon Train, Tauba Auerbach & Eric Bibb

Saturday, 28 May 2016

One of the prettiest theme songs ever, and one of my favorites.
Then the Missus ruined it for me forever by singing this:

Wagons here, wagons there,
There are wagons everywhere;
Some are short, some are long,
And they’re even in this song;

On a ship, on a plane,
You can find them on a train;
This is what we call the Theme to Wagon Train.

Very cool paper sculpture books [via].

How ’bout some country blues? Eric Bibb does it right.

Eric Bibb (vocals, acoustic guitars, baritone guitar, resonator guitar, contra bass guitar, cigar box diddly bow, 6-string banjo & footstomp), Grant Dermody (harmonica), Dirk Powell (fretless banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, upright bass, banjo & harmony vocal), Cedric Watson (fiddles & backing vocals), Danny DeVillier (drums & tambourine), Christine Balfa (cajun triangle).

Aside from the video bloopers and bad cuts, I’d have never guessed so many great ones played on that track.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that Memorial Day is not about hot dogs and beer.

Cool tricks you can do with paper. It reminds me of Doodling In Math Class.

The Fibonacci Series explained graphically.

“Each AK-47 Paper Model Kit comes with all the materials and instructions to construct this amazingly life-like paper model of an AK-47. [via]

Here’s a solution to the Anti-2nd Amendment (Anti-Self-Defense) crowd.

I propose that every child over the age of 10 be instructed in the safe handling and use of firearms; and that every adult shall be required to purchase, carry and display either a genuine weapon or a paper facsimile (painted flat black) at all times. The criminal element will be unnerved and uncertain as to who might return fire.

Licensed law-abiding citizens who desire to may carry the real deal, while those who are scared of the prospect of having to defend themselves with weaponry may use this inexpensive biodegradable camouflage and hope that a thug doesn’t challenge them with a flick of the Bic to the barrel. If that happens, the masquerade is as effective as a blackened bratwurst in a toilet paper tube.

But that won’t happen because Mister Gangbang can’t be sure that the real deal isn’t aimed at Mister Happy by an unseen bystander – with a bright red laser sighted on his cojones.

Pew.

Cool Crafts: AK47 Paper Model Kit

Thursday, 17 December 2009

“Each AK-47 Paper Model Kit comes with all the materials and instructions to construct this amazingly life-like paper model of an AK-47.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a very detailed project, requiring some attention to detail and time.”

Paint it flat black and it’ll get you arrested in the daytime.  At night, unarmed intruders will soil their chonies when they see the business end pointed in their direction.  As for armed intruders, it’s kind of a death sentence… for you.  It’s still cool, though, cuz u kn poze n stuf wit ur blng.
