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)

“Smokey Joe’s High Ride… seems to originate from the early-1980s, and uses the emerging video game craze as its tool of instruction. Four kids pass time in a video arcade, debating whether or not they should get blasted before heading off to the big party, when a new game suddenly materialises before their eyes. The big shot (and driver) amongst the group decides he must try the new game, “Smokey Joe’s High Ride”, which features — surprise, surprise — four kids in a car, on their way to a party. With each successive level, the drive gets progressively more stoned, making it harder to dodge the pedestrians, trains, and oncoming vehicles. Thanks to the harsh lessons dished out by this crappy game, the gang decides they better not indulge in anything until they arrive safely at their destination.” –arcade-museum.com

Two days before Christmas, the alleged smuggler apparently thought Easter eggs would be the perfect ploy to conceal 14 pounds of cocaine.It didn’t work.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers sensed something was a little off with candy for the wrong holiday, a spokeswoman said.
“That’s certainly an anomaly, isn’t it? They’re trained to detect anomalies in all kinds of situations,” said Lee Harty, a spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “It’s an unusual concealment method — at least for this time of year. Maybe not for spring.”
A 16-year-old boy landed in the city lock-up after a Yuletide offering sent him into a rage. He hurled a humidifier across a room, breaking the device. He then smashed his hand into a large mirror, causing it to shatter into jagged pieces.It was around 8 a.m., and the teen had just opened a gift that he didn’t like, Jamestown police reported.
Good news! You’ve got a pretty good chance of surviving a terrorist’s nuclear blast in your city — especially if you’re a rich white man. Women, ethnic minorities and lower socioeconomic classes are more likely to be “stricken by psychiatric disorders,” and once they start going crazy they’re less likely to survive.That’s just one of the startling revelations in the new second edition of “Planning Guidance for Response to a Nuclear Detonation,” a 130-page report produced, thanks to your tax dollars, by the Obama administration’s National Security Staff Interagency Policy Coordination Subcommittee for Preparedness and Response to Radiological and Nuclear Threats. (I’m not making this up, honest.)
Mesquite police early Thursday used pepper spray to control an unruly crowd of sneaker shoppers.The incident happened at Towne East Mall, where dozens of people had lined up top buy Nike’s new Air Jordan 11 Retro, which went on sale at 6 a.m.
Israeli archaeologists said Monday they may have found the earliest evidence yet for the existence of modern man, and if so, it could upset theories of the origin of humans.A Tel Aviv University team excavating a cave in central Israel said teeth found in the cave are about 400,000 years old and resemble those of other remains of modern man, known scientifically as Homo sapiens, found in Israel. The earliest Homo sapiens remains found until now are half as old.
The country is reacting strangely irrationally to the loss of its importance — it is a reaction characterized primarily by rage. Significant portions of America simply want to return to a supposedly idyllic past. They devote almost no effort to reflection, and they condemn cleverness and intellect as elitist and un-American, as if people who hunt bears could seriously be expected to lead a world power. Demagogues stir up hatred and rage on television stations like Fox News. These parts of America, majorities in many states, ignorant of globalization and the international labor market, can do nothing but shout. They hate everything that is new and foreign to them.But will the US wake up? Or is it already much too late?
Rod Blagojevich. Sarah Palin. Carl Paladino.Each of these politicians grabbed news headlines in 2010 for making blunders concerning African Americans. And they’re far from alone. This year politicians made racial gaffes about everything from the Civil Rights Act to President Obama’s blackness to whether the South’s notorious Citizens’ Councils were, in fact, racist. Some of them rebounded from their racial gaffes, while other politicians are still trying to make amends for their bigoted remarks.
The website of America’s largest bank appeared to be suffering sporadic downtime on Monday afternoon amid a flurry of voluntary distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks from “hacktivist” group “Anonymous.”While the site was still available at time of this story’s publication, reports were surfacing across Twitter noting infrequent outages. Raw Story was able to confirm, via two third party website verification services, the site’s technical difficulties on Monday (with screenshots here and here). Greg Mitchell, who pens The Nation’s media blog, also noted sporadic outages on Bank of America’s domain.
“Kill them…including the children.”That’s how to solve the threat of militant Muslims?
This quote is from what one official involved in homeland security said was the theme of a speech by Walid Shoebat at an anti-terrorism training in Las Vegas in October 2010.
Our source had turned around after Shoebat’s speech and asked the woman in the chair behind them at the conference what she thought was the solution offered by Shoebat.
“Kill them…including the children…you heard him,” was the full response.
Shoebat’s Las Vegas speech was described by our source as “frightening.”
During the execution of a search warrant on the couple’s trailer home, investigators confiscated one of the child’s teeth, which was found with the crown and root intact.Faced with mounting evidence, Richards reportedly told investigators that the child had been complaining of tooth pain. He then stated that he pulled the child’s teeth out because he “was probably on at least six or eight Oxycontin pills that night,” according to the arrest report.
Carder claimed she was going to take the child to the dentist, however investigators were unable to find any pending dental appointments with a local dentist.
Armando Javier was an active duty Marine from 1990 to 1994. He was a Lance Corporal at Camp Lejeune in 1993 when he was raped.Five Marines jumped Javier and beat him until he was nearly unconscious, before taking turns raping him. His sexual victimization narrative reads, “One of them, a corporal, pulled down my shorts and instructed the others to ‘Get the grease’. Another corporal instructed someone to bring the stick. They began to insert the stick inside my anus. The people present during this sadistic and ritual-like ceremony started to cajole, cheer, and laugh, saying “stick em’ – stick-em’.”
At least 45 people have been killed across Haiti due to accusations that they are using “black magic” to spread cholera, the director of a Voodoo association says.Max Beauvoir, a voodoo priest, said on Friday most of the killings happened in the southern coastal town of Jeremie, where people were being lynched, set on fire and attacked with machetes.
But a bank’s ability to block payments to a legal entity raises a troubling prospect. A handful of big banks could potentially bar any organization they disliked from the payments system, essentially cutting them off from the world economy.The fact of the matter is that banks are not like any other business. They run the payments system. That is one of the main reasons that governments protect them from failure with explicit and implicit guarantees. This makes them look not too unlike other public utilities. A telecommunications company, for example, may not refuse phone or broadband service to an organization it dislikes, arguing that it amounts to risky business.
Our concern is not specifically about payments to WikiLeaks. This isn’t the first time a bank shunned a business on similar risk-management grounds. Banks in Colorado, for instance, have refused to open bank accounts for legal dispensaries of medical marijuana.
Inside a grave in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is DNA that could finally put to rest debate about whether Abraham Lincoln’s killer escaped capture and lived for years before committing suicide.What’s that you say? Wasn’t this all solved 145 years ago? That depends on who you ask.
The way it’s written in history books, John Wilkes Booth was cornered 12 days after shooting President Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre and killed in a tobacco barn before being laid to rest in a family plot. But there have been several historians over the years not entirely satisfied with this version.
Out of concerns for bioterrorism and illegal drug production, the FBI and New York Police Department were initially alarmed by the idea of a public biotech lab in they city. But Grushkin said a lot of sit-down meetings with the agencies have convinced them.“The FBI now uses pictures of our space to show people what a [methamphetamine] drug lab doesn’t look like,” Grushkin said. One of the FBI contacts even showed up at the grand opening last week to congratulate Grushkin.
According to Blasenstein, Smithsonian security discussed what they should accuse him of (he says he heard them mention a charge of “trespassing,”) then called Washington municipal police. The two groups of officers held a “confab” outside the stairwell, says Blasenstein, and the city police then offered the two protesters the choice of being arrested or signing a form agreeing to a ban from Smithsonian buildings. (Or at least that is what Blasenstein remembers being asked to sign: Police refused to give him a copy of the document. )
Blasenstein and Iacovone chose to sign the forms and be banned — for life, or so the officers suggested, they say. Blasenstein says his goal was to get back on the street as soon as possible, so as to plan further actions to protest the removal of Wojnarowicz’s video. “I didn’t see any further advantage to getting arrested, as opposed to being banned,” he says.

A new study provides some data: The hallucinogen kicks off an unusually intense and short-lasting high, with no obvious ill effects, researchers report in an upcoming Drug and Alcohol Dependence paper.“This is a landmark paper because it’s the first paper in which authentic salvinorin A was administered to human volunteers under controlled conditions, and it was shown to be hallucinogenic,” says psychiatrist and pharmacologist Bryan Roth of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who was not involved in the research. “All we had before were anecdotal reports, where people had bought salvia extract from their local smoke shop.”
An NYPD officer charged in a scheme to buy $40,000 a week worth of an anesthetic drug popular at dance clubs and “rave” parties pleaded not guilty yesterday.Kifah Othman, 40, allegedly tried to obtain the mass quantities of ketamine from a retired cop-turned-tattoo- parlor owner who’s cooperating with the feds in a bid for leniency in a New Jersey narcotics case.
The ex-cop secretly recorded Othman saying he wanted the drugs, known as “Special K,” to sell with a partner “who operated in New York City’s Chinatown,” Manhattan federal court records show.
So we spend millions of taxpayer dollars on the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign — a campaign that has been shown to have almost no positive effect and, in fact, has even been shown to have a reverse effect.The advertising agencies they hire know this, so they keep trying to come up with a new and different approach that is going to appeal to kids today.
They even pay lip service to the idea that trying to use advertising by the government to change youth behavior is absurd..
U.S. authorities indicted a customs officer on Thursday for smuggling guns and drug money through Atlanta’s airport after they nabbed him in a sting operation linked to a big seizure of the drug ecstasy.As part of Operation Rude Beast, undercover agents gave customs officer Devon Samuels $72,000 and told him it came from drug sales. He smuggled the cash through the airport to Jamaica, where Jamaican undercover agents received it.
Samuels used his badge to bypass security and avoid airport screening, according to a federal indictment.
But after the charges were read, one of the jurors raised a hand.“She said, ‘I’ve got a real problem with these marijuana cases,’ ” Judge Deschamps recalled on Wednesday. “And after she got through, a couple more raised their hands.” All told, five jurors raised questions about marijuana prosecution.
And so it was that Mr. Cornell soon became the lucky recipient of a case of almost-a-jury nullification, as prosecutors soon found themselves cutting a deal to dismiss the misdemeanor possession charge out of fear that they would not be able to find 12 jurors in this marijuana-friendly state to convict.
It was the wrong kind of white Christmas.Two men on a Delta Airlines flight from Puerto Rico were busted at JFK Airport yesterday after their suitcases were found stuffed with cocaine, sources said.
Drug Enforcement Administration officials confiscated more than 92 pounds of the white powder — with a street value of nearly $3 million –in the luggage of Emanuel Rojas and Israel Rodriguez, authorities said.
The DEA had been tipped off about the men.
it’s time to drop the Vandal you lame lame little fucking boyas I’ve stopped reading your putrid love-a-thon for anything that may get you a little a ‘head’ in later life I’ve had this pointed out to me that you stand shoulder to shoulder on the Blu removal with Deitch, so much for freedom of speech, standing up to authority, daring to be different, fucking having a backbone

Last week Banksy declared that all profits from his current print sale would be gifted to Russian art anarchist group Voina. Known for drawing an enormous cock on a bridge opposite the ex-KGB offices, and instigating a sex party in a museum (see above). We spoke to the group (half of which were replying from prison).Voina (or “War” to give them their English name) are a radical art group concerned with challenging the Russian establishment on important political issues such as attitudes towards homophobia, race, and the totalitarian actions of the state, through creating outrageous and provocative art performances in Russia. Two of their members; Oleg Vorotnikov and Leonid Nikolayev have been detained for more than a month at St Petersburg Prison on false allegations. Don’t Panic spoke to the group.
Traci’s debut – and it shows Actually she was 15yrs old , She only made 1 porn movie at age 18 before FBI arrested her , so all her movies were made when she was underage , Some other pornstars investigated during the early 80’s and possibly appeared in porn movies underage include Alexandria Quinn , Kristara Barrington and Ali Moore , These other girls didn’t draw as much attention possibly due to the fact they weren’t very popular or overly attractive , at least one of the pornstars appears alongside Traci Lords in more than one movie , There is one movie were possibly all of the actors appear making nearly the entire female cast underage at the time the movie was filmed. Does this still happen today ?
Alexandra Quinn is a retired Canadian porn star who has been active in the industry since the late-1980s.Quinn’s first year in the industry took place before her 18th birthday. Age 18 is the legal minimum in which United States citizens may appear in pornography. Like the case of Traci Lords that came several years earlier, it was discovered in the early-1990s that Quinn’s earlier films were made before she was 18. According to a 2000 interview with Quinn, the discovery occurred when she forgot to bring her fake ID to a session and used her real ID, thinking they would not notice the difference.
“We know there’s a lot of traditional knowledge that is out there in cultures and has a lot of use and has been adopted in modern cultures — things like aspirin where the active ingredient is derived from willow bark,” said Fleischer.“So I think there’s potential to find things in these pills — or combinations of things — that might actually be useful.”
Touwaide cautions that researchers shouldn’t assume that ancient people left us texts about medicines without knowing full well what they were about and how to use them.
“We have found uses of plants which have been forgotten for years. My point is that if ancient cultures, over the centuries, have spent time, energy and money to keep this information, it’s not because this information doesn’t work,” said Touwaide.

Looks like an unofficial iPhone and iPad app that let you view WikiLeaks site content and follow the WikiLeaks Twitter account on the go has been removed from the App app store earlier today. The app used to be available here (here’s the Google cache).
From the WikiLeaks App’s description:
“The Wikileaks app gives instant access to the world’s most documented leakage of top secret memos and other confidential government documents.”
Basically the paid app was selling WikiLeaks content (available for free) for $1.99. Its entry into the app store on December 17th was actually surprising, as Apple is usually quite strict and somewhat vague about its app approval standards. WikiLeaks and founder Julian Assange are quite controversial, to put it lightly but I’m not sure if the app directly violated anything in Apple’s TOS.
