:: Gallery Street Art - Graffitied ::

"Choque Cultural art gallery in Sao Paulo is a gallery renowned for its street art exhibits, including graffiti. But in September the gallery was subject to an "intervention": about 30 pixadores (graffiti artists) invaded the gallery with their paint buckets and brushes and in less than five minutes, painted graffiti over all walls and art pieces exposed." read on... Thanks for the link, Tucker.

NINJAI <-- just thought of this amazing online animation series from like 2001. Been so long and so good... Spend 30 minutes and watch this beautiful internet classic... Wish they'd make chapter 13. They only finished chapter 12 in like 2005. Come on! How about a feature film?

:: Jonestown ::

Man, you know how the web is. You're working away listening to some NPR when something sparks your interest. "Hey, what was that all about", you ask yourself. Clicking away you go, and the next thing you're doing is reading all about Jonestown... and then you spend 44 minutes listening to the audio recording they made while they're about and during the drinking of the poison laced koolaid... Whoa that was some serious dark weird/ creepy heavy shit.

:: GG Paint ::

Guess they're painting the Golden Gate Bridge this morning. My wife crossed it on her way to work and when got to work noticed that a huge splatter of paint fell on the truck... I like that our truck has Golden Gate Bridge paint on it... Speaking of the bridge, we went under it yesterday on the sailboat (thanks for watching FFDG, Gabe)... When we were putting the boat away the Coast Guard was on the radio talking about locating a body of a person who jumped off it an hour before... Freaky, but I guess with the new barrier their about to build, bridge suicides will be a thing of the past. Ever see this one?
