Here’s a delightful demon rug by Chicago-based artist Melita Curphy. I think it would add a slight accent to any room. 

Melita also has a website over at Miss Monster Art.

Banned TV commercial for Romanian SUV

Dacia Duster (not actual size).

Dutch production company Artcore created this hugely politically incorrect commercial for the Romanian automobile manufacturer Dacia to promote the Duster SUV which Dacia describes as being “simple, robust and functional.”

I can’t imaging this ad running on television in any country in the world. Perhaps that was the intention. If it goes viral on the internet, it could potentially be seen by far more people than had it aired on TV. Welcome to new era of advertising: creating campaigns with the purpose of being banned.

French TV host and provocateur Yves Mourousi interviews Iggy Pop in 1977.

The exceedingly hip Mourousi and Mr. Osterberg seem to be on the same wavelength in this totally charming clip.

Mousousi abandoned the constraints of television when he quit his TV gig and opened up “Look,” a Parisian nightclub where he was able to actualize his own rock and roll dreams.

Julian Assange Coloring Book

Here’s a fun way to get your message across - The Julian Assange Coloring Book:

Love him or loathe him, hero or villain, Julian Assange is probably the most talked about person alive today.
WikiLeaks, with Julian as editor-in-chief, has caused quite the stir, and with mirror sites sprouting up around the globe, they will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

“Collateral murder”, “Cablegate”, sexual misconduct charges against Julian in Sweden, calls for his assassination by the CIA, intrigue, suspense, and conspiracy theories - it all makes for pretty serious stuff.

So where does the Julian Assange Coloring Book fit in?

Well, simply put, it’s not “serious stuff”. It’s a coloring book about Julian Assange (with the occasional WikiLeaks page for good measure).

Coloring in is fun and relaxing - try it and see!

If you fancy coloring in Julian Assange, then try your hand here.

As James St. James says over at the fab World of Wonder site this “Must be seen to be believed.” Rock Hudson and Bea Arthur sing about acid, weed, cocaine and booze in the song “Everybody Today Is Turning On”, a toe-tapping moment from Bea Arthur’s Emmy-nominated TV special, aired on 19 January 1980, on CBS. The song comes   from the 1977 Broadway Musical I Love My Wife.

Bust-a-gut funny Amazon reviews of Carrot Top’s cinematic masterpiece ‘Chairman of the Board’

image
 
It appears as if Amazon reviewers are having a good ol’ time writing reviews for Carrot Top’s 1998 film Chairman of the Board. I’ve never seen Chairman of the Board, but my God are some of these reviews absolutely hilarious.

From Amazon reviewer Rob Morrison:

“I have one word to describe the experience of seeing this movie - floored. Not since “Becket” with Richard Burton and Peter O’Toole (chronicling the unsteady friendship between Henry II and the Archbishop of Canterbury in 12th century England)have I been so impressed with performances by two actors. Larry Miller plays the antagonist with such deft nuance a lesser critic would swear he couldn’t act, until the climax arises wherein he chews scenery until his gums bleed. Carrot Top steals scenes and hearts with a continuous stream of hijinks, tomfoolery, and shenanigans that makes us laugh until we realize at the end of the movie that he’s also taught us how to love.”

From Amazon reviewer Rich King’s Breakfast Nook:

“This story is just gripping and takes you on an emotional roller coaster you could only simulate if your cat died, followed by intercourse with Pam Anderson, followed by an infomercial on Tony Robbins, topped off with a Pizza Party thrown at your house by Jay Leno. I was so emotionally spent after this film, I called in sick to work for the next 5 days. Do yourself a favor and see this masterpiece.”
