--Well, in the "spirit" of the California Assault Weapon Ban I decided to do my best to alleviate the fears of my fellow citizens and gun-banning legislators when I put together a new AR-15 for my wife. Below is the result of my painstaking work to transform an Evil Black Rifle (EBR) into a Cute Pink RIfle (CPR). Introducing the Hello Kitty AR-15!
This rifle is 100% legal in California because it is based on an "off-list" lower receiver made by Stag Arms and has no evil features at all, instead featuring a fixed stock instead of the evil collapsible stock, a muzzle brake in place of the vile flash-hider, and a MonsterMan Grip instead of the heinous and malicious plastic pistol grip.--

We're inviting designers to explore the concept of "Greener Gadgets." Designs should seek to minimize the environmental impact of consumer electronic devices at any stage in the product lifecycle. Areas of sustainability to consider include:
2. Materials / Lifecycle / Recycling
3. Social & educational development
Participants are encouraged to consider their designs as part of the entire product ecosystem, and should think as holistically as possible. Designers may choose to focus their entries on a particular area of human enterprise (learning, playing, communicating, etc.), or a particular context (work, home, school, etc.), a particular material, or a specific device. Entries may also seek to create new paradigms for products and services.
Ultimately, we are looking for "great gadgets" of the greener kind.for more details, visit - http://www.core77.com/competitions/greener_gadgets.asp

Since 1980, the 4 or 5 Floptops known as Negativland have been creating records, fine art, video, books, radio and live performance using appropriated sound, image and text. Mixing original materials and music with things taken from corporately owned mass culture, Negativland re-arranges these bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural opposition and "culture jamming" (a term coined by Negativland in 1984), Negativland have been sued twice for copyright infringement.
Declared heroic by their peers for refashioning culture into what the group considers to be more honest statements, Negativland suggests that refusing to be original, in the traditional sense, is the only way to make art that has any depth within commodity capitalism...
- NEW YORK TIMES
It's an often ignored request, but you may pay more attention to the phrase "Please remember to take all your belongings" after seeing Negativland's eerily mesmerizing new project…
Negativland, longtime advocates of fair use allowances for pop media collage, are perhaps America's most skilled plunderers from the detritus of 20th century commercial culture. Negativland are media addicts who see society suffering under a constant barrage of TV, canned imagery, advertising and corporate culture...the band's latest project is razor sharp, microscopically focused, terribly fun and a bit psychotic.
- WIRED MAGAZINE
For more than 20 years, Negativland has earned renown for manipulation of both tape and media.
- LOS ANGELES TIMES
Collage pioneers...genre-defying, densely layered, strangely accessible...
- WASHINGTON POST
Negativland argues persuasively that creators should be able to appropriate bits and pieces of anything and incorporate then into their work without fear of legal action.
- UTNE READER
Negativland isn't just some group of merry pranksters; its art is about tearing apart and reassembling found images to create new ones, in an attempt to make social, political and artistic statements. Hilarious and chilling.
- THE ONION
Scathing and entertaining...they believe that the sheer volume of advertising is degrading to the mental and physical environment
- BUSINESS WEEK
Twisted genius...compelling...parody and satire as a grass roots weapon of consumer resistance.
- ROLLING STONE
Brutally hilarious...a compelling argument for the anti-copyright movement.
- VILLAGE VOICE
Better known for media pranks than records.
- TIME MAGAZINE
Cut n' paste collage par excellence...always subversive...
Fearless artistes or foolhardy risk-takers.... by constantly haranguing the audience with authentic advertising spiel and highlighting its transparency, they kill the messenger, kill the message and produce highly entertaining art simultaneously.
- L.A. WEEKLY
Negativland are at it again...13 tracks fuse jingles, dialogue and music in a parody of soft drink marketing.
- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Negativland: a sense of humor, brilliant collage work (especially on a purely aesthetic level), and great cultural criticism. These qualities have long been the cornerstone of an artistic and activist career which is second to none, in or out of "pop" music.
- TUBA FRENZY
The band hilariously juxtapose and layer sound bites and jingles...to help their targets hang themselves. What if the Pepsi execs actually like the album?

A booklet in collaboration with Alice Wolff
Eelko Moorer constructs designs that are theatrically conceptual and exquisitely handmade, yet from which the commercial and mass-produced can be derived.
Known for subverting conventional expectations and behavioural patterns through a series of darkly suggestive and often zoomorphic objects, Moorer’s designs include a bearskin rug made of rubber 'fur', shoes with integral hooks for commuters to suspend themselves upside down from the handrails of overcrowded commuter carriages, like meat being transported to market, or a suicide bird perch which attaches to the outer railings of a balcony allowing the person to sit and contemplate their next movement. This interaction between performance and product allows Moorer to navigate the hauntingly fine line between comfort and discomfort – between heightened states of exhilaration and anxiety – through design.

Elements of an Effective Suicide
If life no longer has sweetness for you and you would like your final breath to be breathed in an air of beauty and purpose, Attractive Corpse can help.
A well-considered suicide is not a sloppy, repellent affair, but a piece of performance art, a tribute to what was and what could have been. The elements of an Attractive Corpse signature suicide include:
- An appropriate location. The right place for a suicide is private, calm, and of meaning to the intended. There should be no significant chance of premature discovery and no need to rush.
- A well-thought-out, hand-written suicide note, suitable for publication.
- No trace of malice or vengeance. Make your suicide about you, not about those who brought you to this place. Don't leave this world with angry words on your lips.
- A method that requires no unnecessary effort or pain, fits the personality of the suicide, and does not endanger others. It should not create a more difficult cleanup than necessary. Those angry suicides who wish to use shotguns or dramatically throw themselves in front of buses should look elsewhere.
- Optimal opportunity for a poetic and heart-wrenching discovery.
- An attractive corpse. This means appropriate dress for the occasion, no significant disfigurement, and an eye-pleasing final position. Lighting and setting should also be arranged to optimize the tableau.
- A complete professional-quality photographic record, after the fact.
Attractive Corpse offers the following services to its client:
- Method consultation
- Fashion and makeup (if appropriate) consultation
- Location scouting
- Location preparation (including music, lighting, etc., if desired)
- Suicide note editing and workshopping
- Scheduling assistance
- Complete dress rehearsal
- Post-discovery photography
- Referrals are available to financial planners, psychological services, and religious representatives.
We do not offer or give referrals for legal services (including will preparation) and clients are completely responsible for the legal ramifications of their actions. No Attractive Corpse personnel may be present at the time of the suicide. We will not participate in any suicide that is arranged to look like a homicide, and are not interested in aiding insincere, attention-getting attempts. All client contact is confidential until after the suicide is complete.
Note that all services must be prepaid. A partial refund is given for incompleted or unsuccessful events.

the first day of the rest of my life
along the lines
old water (intro of the DVD)
Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson came from opposing backgrounds.
Sebastian was trained as a classical musician playing the organ, piano and the violin among other instruments.
He even became involved in teaching them until his coming of age at 18 when he formed a band and began experimenting with the sounds in a more contemporary way. Marcus lived on a diet of Kraftwerk and the Front 242 until realising his true calling in the techno parties of the 90s. Through promoting parties he moved on to become one of the bigger DJs in Southern Sweden. It was in a party where they met and decided to combine Sebastian’s musician’s perspective and knowledge with Marcus´ DJ skills and experience from the scene. They got together in 1996 and after 10 years in the music business under successful guises such as Son Kite and Trimatic,
Marcus & Sebastian are now Minilogue - an animalistic music concept without the boundaries of genres.
They hail from Malmoe, a small town in the south of Sweden with a population of less than 1/4 million, an unlikely setting for such underground and innovative project. Through the years their music has expanded and moved through a variety of sounds appealing across the board of electronic music.

Wim Delvoye has been tattooing pigs since the 1990s. In the early 21st century a tattooed pigs project was set up in the Art Farm in China, where there are fewer strictures regarding animal welfare than in most parts of the Western world. In 2005 his colleague, artist Danny Devos, spent several months at the farm, reorganizing, managing and rebuilding.
