Li Zhenhua

Artist, Li Zhenhua has an ambitious art exhibit at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. There are three components to the show, 1. "The Wave", which is a collection of video projects 2. "Create What you", photos 3. "Live Motion", live video feeds. There's a lot of stuff here, but from what I can tell, some very interesting Chinese art. link

Myspace Improv

Found this entertaining comedy/improv piece entitled "Secrets of myspace in the workplace", not hilarious, but pretty funny.


So the Finnish Heavy Metal band "Lordi" has won some big European "pop" contest. They are Gwar only from Finland, and not as good. Here is their winning performance at Eurovision live! Very funny stuff... link

London Voyeur

These pics are little creepy but also really engaging, someone in London riding the public transit system has decided to be a covert photographer. There are hundreds of images of unsuspecting passengers. Best part, the photographer's descriptive titles "bad harido II" etc. See pics here


mr_paper is a real entrepreneur, graphics, street art, advertising, even some sweet skate decks. link

Handless Mother

Necessity is the mother of invention. Here's some touching photos of a Chinese mother and her child. The mother, born with out her hands, can do everything a normal mom can, including needlepoint! link


Here's a flickr "porthole" to images from Dragoncon, there are many different types of costumes, you can get lost looking at them all. However, I think that the Flash may have lost some of his speed. link

Robot Wars

Not sure what's going on here, it appears a wizard and a ninja are having a robot challenge. Good stuff. link

Love Will Tear Us Apart

This blog has links for MP3s of 29 different versions of bands covering Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart". Some of these are really good. U2 and Arcade fire? Whoa. link

Temple of the Dudes

This is a hilarious site featuring a failed Disney/Epcot type amusement park in Sichuan, China that the author refers to as "Disgraceland". Lots of great witty China commentary on the ruins of this once "great" park. link
