Public opinion is at an all-time high with all of the rumors swirling around Julian Assange and his WikiLeaks whistle blower website. With most not completely informed of all the on-goings, this documentary will provide a bit further insight into the highly intriguing story which seemingly sees new development by the day. Although much different than our usual postings, the story’s cultural significance is surely relevant to the current social and political landscape in our society.
On some other news, the Dream Act failed to pass the Senate this past Saturday. Perhaps some of you are familiar with this legislation and would understand the importance of it. Well the Dream has been defeated in Washington, but the Dream lives on in every immigrant student who is working hard for their future. The Dream lives on and I know it will become a reality.
These next two weeks there will be preparations for 2011. I'm gonna make a list of goal, plans, projects, and accomplishments I want to achieve for next year. Some of those include making a rap son, expanding this blog, and start a brand.
2011 I'm almost ready.

I was riding my new moped down Blackburn last night and for the first time I noticed the new mural at the Transit Bicycle shop. Since it was closed, I didn't get to check the sick graphics on the wall. This morning I was jumping through blogs left and right and stumbled upon Magnificent Beard's tumblr. To my surprise there was THIS video that shows the process of that same wall. Major props.

The Walkmen cover "Holiday Road"
The A.V. Club is doing Holiday Undercover. They put out a master list of songs and simply asked bands to come and play a song--with two rules: It had to be a cover, and it had to somehow be holiday related. The Walkmen came up with an excellent choice: Lindsey Buckingham's "Holiday Road," which you'll surely recall from its use in the movie Vacation. If you don't already have the latest Walkmen album, Lisbon, then you are crazy and you hate good music. Oh, and Holiday Undercover will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from now until the end of the month, except for one special week when it will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Happy holidays, and enjoy.

Here's my take on it. If you destroy a Picasso, that Picasso no longer has value. The same should be applied in this case. The art that was destroyed in this place should no longer be of any value. The "art" here being sold is part of a criminal investigation. Only a money-hunger person would turn such crap (literally since one of the objects being sold is a vandalized toilet with concrete in it) into something that is suppose to be valuable. Modern art scene can be very wack sometimes. It seems to me that the owner saw an opportunity to receive insurance money and sell these "art pieces" by destroying his own property. Or I could be completely wrong and say that this guy actually turned something negative into something really profitable and positive. Not my place, not my art, whatevs...
