Although it was covered in the Los Angeles Times and shown at a couple of high profile film festivals, Spike Stewart’s mid 80’s doc “D.U.I.” has been utterly lost to obscurity. A collection of completely obnoxious performances captured roughly
on semi-pro VHS gear, it probably deserves its unknown status but is still a rare glimpse into a very marginalized and hilarious scene of performance art tinged bands. And yes, that’s 17 year old me on drums with Severed Head in a Bag. NSFW !

Unleash your inner rage at art in the age of mechanical reproduction—bash Andy Warhol at the Brooklyn Museum!

Andy Warhol had a big head, so naturally, the Brooklyn Museum installed a 20-ft Warhol-head-shaped piñata. It’s filled with mysterious edibles that will rain down on art lovers when they smash it open at the Brooklyn Ball.

Limited Edition LP with FREE CD over at Black Tent Press


 
WHOA! Here’s an excerpt of a bizarre interview freaky YouTube user Tonetta did with Lolokaust:
 
Lolokaust: Every time someone new comes on the scene the music press always try and categorize and pigeonhole an artist, this wont be easy in your case so how would you describe what you do?

Tone: I don’t really know i just accept what it is

Lolokaust: Do you collaborate with anyone to make your music?

Tone: no I do it all myself

Lolokaust: Who are your musical influences and is there anyone to whom you aspire to?

Tone: the genius John Lennon

Lolokaust: There are many references to the male member in your lyrics, is this something particularly close to your heart?

Tone: I’m simply promoting it.

Lolokaust: Many of the songs are about sexual deviancy, Would you consider yourself a Sexual Deviant?

Tone: Yes I am.

Lolokaust: You have had incidents with Youtube deleting your videos/accounts, What are your thoughts on Internet Censorship?

Tone: Makes no sense

And a cartography of inner space via the inimitable Russian psychedelic blog LSDEX.RU. Presumably this is what the next iteration of iTunes visualizer will look like. If so, I might actually get around to buying an iPad, you know, just to hang on my bathroom wall.

Be imageGordon Gekko for a day with Stuart Hughes’ Privé brick phone. From Engadget:

Stuart Hughes usually reserves its gold and diamonds for recent gadgets, but the fine purveyor of ridiculous excess has taken a slightly different approach with its latest offering: the $200,000+ Privé brick phone. In addition to a 22ct gold shell and a smattering of diamonds, this apparently functional phone packs a color screen and features like SMS support and, um… buttons. Limited to just ten but, amazingly, still in stock.

 
Thanks, Jesse Merlin!
