From my regular trolling on the interweb:

Here’s this insanely clever clip about spaghetti by PES. [ h/t Joan]

And there’s this groovy Santigold/N.E.R.D. video.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Remember Troy King, that douchebag Attorney General from Alabama who wanted to criminalize dildos? Yeah, well, surprise! Surprise! He’s gay. He was reportedly discovered by his wife. Weirdly enough, Troy King was nailing the homecoming king from Troy University.

Freddie Mac+Fannie Mae = We’re fucked. More on the banking crisis from a less excitable source.

Courts rules that it is in fact not constitutional to strip search a thirteen year old under suspicious of having Advil.

Jackass local TV reporter gets called a jackass.

Here’s an article about the logistics of sex in space aka the “Human Docking Procedure.” But here’s a passage that leapt out at me:

[Dr. Kring] believes that Nasa could learn from the operation of bases at the South Pole, where researchers who are separated from their families for months at a time take “expedition spouses” as sexual partners for the duration.

He said: “You have an exclusive relationship with them for six to nine months but when the expedition is over, so is the relationship and you return to your normal lives and families.”

I can’t wait to use phrases like “Human Docking Procedure” and “Expedition Spouse” in every day conversation.

Finally, this insanely cool new video from Radiohead. Nary a camera was used for the production and it looks like it was directed by robots. [via BoingBoing]

My weekly culling from the internets:

Super cool video filled with 80static logos.

This news story is just three shades of wrong.

And speaking of wrong, a conceptual artist in Yale is making “art” out of her own self-induced miscarriages. My first thought was “Ick.” My second was “ick.” My third was “I’m surprised she didn’t go to CalArts.” I’m so bored of this kind of shock identity politics art. It’s suffocating dead end that art still hasn’t found its way out of. Besides, it’s totally a rip off of my portrait of McGeorge Bundy done with my own snot.

[UPDATE] Turns out this whole thing was (thankfully) a hoax. Rest assured, if she went to CalArts, she would have done it for real.

[UPDATE 2] Or maybe Yale’s statement is a hoax. This whole thing is giving me a headache. Where’s Stabby when you need him?

And speaking of conceptual artists, in the 90s a couple of Russian conceptual artists decided to make the most unappealing music possible based on polls. The results you can read more about and listen to here.

More about conceptual artists or a sort: Jenna Jameson declares that her upcoming flick Zombie Strippers, is an anti-Bush movie. That might sway me to see it. Y’know, for the political subtext.
