There’s a new show coming to the Discovery Chanel called Weaponizers. Brought to you by the same people who brought you Mythbusters, this show centers around weaponizing and remote controlling cars. They’ll be building them with several different types of competition in mind, including defense of an object and all out warfare. You’ll note in the press release that they keep mentioning their special effects backgrounds. Judging by the picture above, we should expect to see them shooting lots of fireworks, maybe some flame throwers thrown in. Generally, we think we’ll see lots of flashy stuff that really isn’t effective at destroying an unmanned car. They do mention live ammunition, so maybe they’ll actually try to make these things able to harm each other. Let’s hope they don’t let us down.

The information superhighway was not meant to be controlled by any one company.

FuckTwitter is the latest part of the F.A.T. Lab’s ongoing efforts to cloud off the grid — Fuck 2.0, host your own.

Do you know what Big Web2.0 is doing with your data?

* AOL Hometown suddenly closed up shop, without warning all the people who had websites there

* Facebook wants to own anything you post, ever

* even friggin’ Geocities is going offline

… who can you trust these days? That’s right. Nobody.

we’ve now entrusted Twitter alone with a huge information pipeline. We live at the whim of their downtime, and they can do whatever they want with what you’re saying… e.g. narcing you out to the Chinese gvmnt (FREE SHI TAO)



FuckTwitter is powered by the free laconi.ca microblogger, which supports federation between installs. Like an open source voltron we can build a mesh communication network, more akin to IRC than to the current Napster-esque model.

When yr fucktweetin you can even setupa automatic crossposting to a regular ol’ TOS-bound twitter.com account… you know, 4 the famo.

The Urine to Fertilizer Kits were on display at the Museum of Modern art as part of their exhibition for Earth Day. Other works in the show included Isabella Rossellini's fabulous Green Porno series, Superflex's Flooded McDonald's, and Michel de Broin's Pedal-powered Buick.

Los Angeles Sign Series - Sand Ocean Sky

Sand Ocean Sky - The Commons
Commercial Roadside Sign
Los Angeles Coastline, 2009

Just after the opening of my solo show at Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles we loaded up a rented pick-up truck with the arrow sign I included in the show. When I came across various locations in the city, we untied the sign, carried it over and snapped some shots - each time improvising a message for the face. This photo series is an extension of some earlier drawing work you might want to see.

I jusy posted these. If you are interested in purchasing any of these as prints, I will announce when the prints are ready and cost on my mailing list.
