Jamie Hewlett — Limited edition prints to benefit Oxfam

JamieHewlettOxfam1

Jamie Hewlett – the artist behind Tank Girl and Gorillaz – visited Bangladesh with Oxfam, to see for himself how climate change is already costing lives.

The experience inspired a sensitive, thought-provoking series of watercolours available to buy here in aid of our River Basin Programme, which works in Bangladesh and Nepal.

U2 To Make Web History With Live YouTube Gig — October 25, 2009.

U2TheClawimage: Happyfloyd

From Sky News:

U2 are to become the first rock stars to stream an entire gig on YouTube this Sunday.

The gig will begin at 4.30am, 8.30pm LA time and is the first time a show of this size will be streamed live on the site.

YouTube is confident the site can handle the millions of fans expected to log on, while those who miss it can watch two replays of the full concert immediately afterwards.

Michele Flannery, the website’s music manager, said: “YouTube is thrilled to be able to provide our global audience with a live streaming performance from one of the world’s greatest bands.

“We are always looking for new ways to connect fans around the world with their favourite artists, and this is the perfect opportunity to do just that.”

Fans will also have access to Twitter while watching the show.

The band will broadcast live from the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California to millions of fans – and it is all for free.

U2 manager Paul McGuinness said: “The band has wanted to do something like this for a long time.

“As we’re filming the Los Angeles show, it’s the perfect opportunity to extend the party beyond the stadium.

“Fans often travel long distances to come to see U2 – this time U2 can go to them, globally.”

The Rose Bowl show is U2′s penultimate gig of the year on the 360 Degrees Tour.

Tonight only! Zombie strippers at the Admiral: The undead meet the unclothed

zombieStrippers

From The Chicago Tribune:

One rips off a bikini top. The other rips an arm off a hapless victim, beating the just-single-limbed person mercilessly before feasting on the bloody remains. Neither wants you touching them.

Exotic dancers and zombies, the two grand pillars of American subculture, have finally joined forces — thus proving our nation’s obsession with the walking dead has irrevocably crossed the line of mainstream consciousness, where now strippers are parodying a trend.

The site is Albany Park’s Admiral Theatre, a gentlemen’s club where chairs have leopard prints and a woman who works there is named Euphoria (likely not her Christian name).

Wednesday night, club organizers are throwing an event called “Night of the Stripping Dead,” where professional makeup artists will transform otherwise pious dancers into undead dancers.

The highlight, said club marketing manager Tim Brown, will be a performance by zombie burlesque dancer Miss Maya Sinstress. Brown first noticed Sinstress at a burlesque convention.

“She came out in a metal corset, metal bikini and proceeded to take it off with a chain saw,” Brown said. “It floored me.”

Brown, who came up with the idea, was also particularly excited about “zombie (little people)” running the concession stand that night, which he said is “gonna be nuts.”

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Videos (2009)

I really enjoyed the first installment of Boondock Saints, but it still cracks me up that Bill Connelly plays the role of their father. I’m more familiar with Billy in his stand-up role.

Puppies and Flowers : Great Dane dog tired after giving birth to amazing litter of 15 puppies

bigLitter.jpg

From article:

It looks like a scene from 101 Dalmations but without the spots.

Macey, the Great Dane, went through a gruelling 20 hour birth to produce the amazing litter of 15 puppies.

The two-year-old pedigree blue shocked her owners who had been told by vets to expect just four.
