I was crusin’ around LA one day ‘n saw some wheatpastes of a mighty familiar image.
Ewww, why did you havta go ‘n stretch it in photoshop…
Thought it was just street art but it seems to be a band or a night…
Okay, wait, now I googled ‘Alfred E Neuman Misfits Shirt‘, ‘n found a bunch of weird copies, I guess it’s bein’ assimilated by the internet ‘n mutant modern streetwear appropriation!
Boing Boing wrote it up in 2008 ‘n it got indexed on search engines, seems like most of the appropriated versions come from the Boing Boing picture, they have some distortion from the photos perspective, ‘n look like they were thrown into Illustrator by a savvy ‘graphic designer’ ‘n auto traced ‘n vectored at a low detail
Love Is Lame Is Lame
This one really sucks…
Let’s take it back to the OG version in 2006 ‘n Jason Dill (plus eye buttons)

After the recent Vancouver riots, it became clear that the world is surveiling itself at an unprecedented scale. Angry citizens gave police one million photos and 1,000 hours of video footage to help them track down the rioters. If we aren’t living in a surveillance state run by the government, we’re certainly conducting a huge surveillance experiment on each other.
Which is what makes two new apps, CopRecorder and OpenWatch, and their Web component, OpenWatch.net, so interesting. They are the brainchildren of Rich Jones, a 23-year-old Boston University graduate who describes himself as “pretty much a hacker to the core.” Flush with cash and time from a few successful forays into the app market, nine months ago Jones decided to devote some of his time to developing what he calls “a global participatory counter-surveillance project which uses cellular phones as a way of monitoring authority figures.”
A Russian woman died from a heart attack brought on by the shock of waking up at her own funeral.
Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, was mistakenly declared deceased by doctors, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
But she later woke up – in a coffin surrounded by sobbing relatives. She started screaming after realizing she was about to be buried alive.
Mukhametzyanov, a resident of Kazan, was rushed back to the hospital where she was declared dead — this time for real.
New Mexico fire managers scrambled on Tuesday to reinforce crews battling a third day against an out-of-control blaze at the edge of one of the top U.S. nuclear weapons production centers.
The fire’s leading edge burned to within a few miles of a dump site where some 20,000 barrels of plutonium-contaminated waste, including clothing and equipment, is stored at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, fire officials said.
Apple-infused horse semen shots might not be an obvious chaser to spring rolls, but they are causing a stir at the Green Man Pub where they are being served.
The shots are part of the central Wellington pub’s entry in the nationwide 14th annual Monteith’s Beer & Wild Food Challenge.
While the rest of the meal of seared Asian duck and pork and paua spring rolls sounds delicious – it is the Hoihoi tatea, or horse semen drink which is on everyone’s minds.
Green Man Pub chef, Jason Varley, said the drink was proving most popular with women.
“Ladies thought it was great a couple were going to go home and get their husbands to eat grass,” he said.
But Mr Varley added that some woman had their concerns.
“A couple of them were worried they might bear children with long faces,” he joked.
I recently attended a toy show where I dug up what could be some of the most obscure 80s toys in existence. (Sounds pretty dramatic, huh? Well, maybe the most obscure toys I own.)
Seriously though. Look at these guys. It’s a freakin’ oatmeal monster and the Quaker Oats guy as a He-Man figure.

The war on drugs has helped make the U.S. the world’s largest incarcerator.
America’s criminal justice system should keep communities safe, treat people fairly, and use fiscal resources wisely. But more Americans are deprived of their liberty than ever before – unfairly and unnecessarily, with no benefit to public safety. Especially in the face of economic crisis, our government should invest in alternatives to incarceration and make prisons options of last – not first – resort.
U.S. Airways has landed in hot water for allowing a scantily-clad drag queen to fly without hassle just a week before crews booted a college football player off a plane for wearing saggy pants.
The gray-haired cross dresser boarded a June 9 flight from Fort Lauderdale to Phoenix wearing a little more than stiletto heels, thigh-high black stocking and tiny, electric blue panties, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Witnesses said passengers complained about the flamboyant flyer, but U.S. Air let him board because the company doesn’t have any rules against showing skin.
Radioactive tritium has leaked from three-quarters of U.S. commercial nuclear power sites, often into groundwater from corroded, buried piping, an Associated Press investigation shows.
The number and severity of the leaks has been escalating, even as federal regulators extend the licenses of more and more reactors across the nation.
Tritium, which is a radioactive form of hydrogen, has leaked from at least 48 of 65 sites, according to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission records reviewed as part of the AP’s yearlong examination of safety issues at aging nuclear power plants. Leaks from at least 37 of those facilities contained concentrations exceeding the federal drinking water standard – sometimes at hundreds of times the limit.
Former MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser (a name you may recognize from your inbox) explains how sites such as Facebook and Google are quietly creating a personalized Internet that removes content that may be challenging, uncomfortable or important.
Pariser has written a book on the subject called “The Filter Bubble,” and breaks down the idea in the TED talk below. In one troubling example, he has two demographically similar friends Google the word Egypt. One gets news about the revolution while the other gets travel-themed results and nothing about political upheaval.
There’s something new for us to worry about: Blackberry neck.
It’s not a condition caused by drinking too many smoothies – it’s the formation of neck creases that may be (repeat, may be) formed by repeatedly looking down, again and again to send text messages and emails on your favorite cell phone or texting device.
Some people I have mentioned this concern to have essentially accused me of heresy and paranoia because “there is no way Apple would do that to their users”. Apple would not have to. They would simply have to comply with an information demand from the RIAA, who has had no problem with being seen as the bad guy in hardball enforcement against file sharing. Moreover consider this:
Apple is the largest music retailer on the planet.
Apple believes, possibly justifiably, that it loses billions of dollars annually to illegal music file sharing.
The easiest way out of the legal jam over challenged content in your iCloud storage would be to convert the suspected iCloud music by buying it from Apple. Apple becomes almost like a white knight in the process.
A motel known for touting its heart-shaped Jacuzzi for years quietly housed dozens of registered sex offenders and predators.
The Budget Inn on North Federal Highway was one of the few housing options for sex offenders in the city. That is, until the motel’s owner learned of the tenants’ criminal records this past week and evicted them.
On Friday, 24 offenders were listed on the state’s sex offender registry as living at the 50-room motel just south of Oakland Park Boulevard.
Up for that shiny new job and cleared the first round of background checks? Might want to double check that you haven’t had any lewd behavior online because the FTC (News – Alert) just gave the green light to include your Facebooking habits in your job screen.
No longer are employers relying on a quick Google search to find dirt on prospective employees. Now hiring managers are looking to Facebook (News – Alert) posts. In fact, according to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, Social Intelligence Corp. has been given the legal thumbs up to archive seven years worth of your Facebook posts. These archives will be used as part of their background checking service for job applicants.
A group of US representatives plan to introduce legislation that will legalize marijuana and allow states to legislate its use, pro-marijuana groups said Wednesday.
The legislation would limit the federal government’s role in marijuana enforcement to cross-border or inter-state smuggling, and allow people to legally grow, use or sell marijuana in states where it is legal.
The bill, which is expected to be introduced on Thursday by Republican Representative Ron Paul and Democratic Representative Barney Frank, would be the first ever legislation designed to end the federal ban on marijuana.
Sixteen of the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
Even though local farmers have not tested their soil and water, Nita Abbott of LA Farms, near Gambo, expressed an interest in having her land tested to ensure they’re selling a safe product. The newspaper contacted private testing companies, government agencies, and universities to inquire if they would consider testing local farms. All of them said they were not interested in getting involved at any level. Health Canada also reported that everything is normal.
Even though no official testing has been done in central Newfoundland, Ms. Abbott speculated, “I guess they feel they don’t have evidence to take it further.”
A Southwest Airlines pilot has been suspended after broadcasting a slur-filled rant about flight attendants over an air-traffic control frequency that stopped controllers from contacting other aircraft.
The profanity-laced rant meant controllers were unable to contact other aircraft for several minutes potentially putting lives at risk.
The Southwest Airlines pilot launched into a swear laced tirade about gay, overweight and older flight attendants on a flight passing over Houston, Texas.
The pilot complained that most flight attendants weren’t acceptable dating prospects for him.
‘It was a continuous stream of gays, grannies and grandes,’ the pilot said.
The recording was obtained by the Houston Chronicle from the Federal Aviation Authority.
The pilot, who has not been named, had accidentally turned on his microphone while talking to his co-pilot.
Imagine yourself enjoying the great outdoors when, all of a sudden, nature calls. With no bathroom in sight, what’s a city slicker to do? How does one properly relieve oneself in the woods?
That’s the question Montana-based wilderness enthusiast Kathleen Meyer has been trying to answer for the past two decades in her book “How To Shit In The Woods: An Environmentally Sound Approach To A Lost Art” (Ten Speed Press).
The so-called “backcountry bible,” originally published in 1989, is a quirky yet useful guide for nature lovers who might need to poop in the wild.
Cocaine used to just get you high. Now it rots your skin.
Doctors say the cocaine hitting the streets in New York and Los Angeles is now cut with a drug that veterinarians use to de-worm livestock, causing cokeheads’ skin to rot off.
The “thermal injuries,” police said, were consistent with those documented in cases from Dayton, Ohio; New Kent County, Va., and Galveston, Texas. Detectives researched those cases and awaited the findings of the Sacramento County coroner’s office.
“Based on that research and the autopsy results,” the department said in a statement, “detectives believe the injuries occurred as a result of the child being burned in a microwave oven.”
It was Friday the 13th, and Skylar Walters thought he was going to die.
The 16-year-old inmate of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High in Illinois was in gym class when a deranged-looking man barged into the school and began firing what appeared to be a handgun at several of the other students.
“I started praying to God and saying my last words,” Skylar later recalled. “I was scared. I didn’t know what to do.”
As the intruder fired his gun, he called out the name of a particular student; the youngster quite sensibly fled the building. Other kids “were just running everywhere and crying and hiding,” Skylar recounted. Some of the panicking schoolkids probably attempted to call or text their parents to describe the horror unfolding in front of them. They didn’t know that each of the parents had been instructed not to answer if his child issued a desperate plea for help.

It is possible the answer lies in the fact that the container, although empty, needed to “appear to be locked” as it passed through various check points.
“We are unhappy over the incident. This is the first time such a thing has happened since our Malaysian production started in 1997,” said Sato Koji, manager of the Sagami Rubber Factory.
After two months of collecting names, he claims to be more than half way toward getting the 7,168 signatures he needs by late April to put the matter on the November ballot.
Schofield and a growing community of anti-circumcision activists say that infants should not be forced to participate in what is essentially culturally accepted genital mutilation.
Capital FM reports that Gaga is suing the Icecreamists, a London ice cream parlor that recently introduced “Baby Gaga,” an ice cream made from human breast milk.
They called for ethnic studies programs to promote racial pride.
They are, some say, the new face of racial oppression in this nation — and their faces are white.
“We went from being a privileged group to all of a sudden becoming whites, the new victims,” says Charles Gallagher, a sociologist at La Salle University in Pennsylvania who researches white racial attitudes and was baffled to find that whites see themselves as a minority.
This had restricted baby Ella’s oxygen and blood supply, with doctors working for 25 minutes to revive her before they detected a heartbeat, Metro newspaper reported.
With fears her brain would be damaged, Ella was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where her body temperature was lowered to below the level at which hypothermia occurs.
Her father, Jason Anderson, 33, said: “I laid my hand on her head and she was ice-cold to the touch.”
The pioneering procedure protects against brain damage by forcing the organ to repair itself, according to The Sun.
After three days, Ella’s temperature was gradually returned to normal and the miracle tot was allowed home only eight days later.
People in Libya were rich. Libya had the highest gross domestic product (GDP) at purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita of all of Africa. The government took care to ensure that everyone in the country shared in the wealth. Libya had the highest Human Development Index of any country on the continent. The wealth was distributed equally. In Libya, a lower percentage of people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.
