Our longest post ever – scarily long. First we start off with a bunch of cool Street Art that is evocative of Halloween.
Then we hear a special Halloween/Election message from Christine O’Donnell, a look at tonights’ events including Unified Love Movement’s installation across from MOMA, Erik Burke’s Closing Party, and Crest Hardware’s Pumpkin Carving Party (tonight). Also, video of Dan Witz’s disturbing WTF Street Art, and the most popular person to dress up as.

Looking though our BSA records, we haven’t had a Fun Friday since way back before Obamacare was approved and the Communists took over and the Death Panels were installed. Now that it is just all of us degenerates left running the place, let’s look at some of the important cultural signifiers (as Gaia would say) that are shaping our world….
The VADER PROJECT
100 Artists Pimped the Dark Side for “The Vader Project”
Through four tour stops (LA, London, Tokyo and the Warhol Museum), The Vader Project has thrilled Star Wars fans, collectors and art enthusiasts with a staggering display of 100 artist customized Darth Vader replica 1:1 helmets.

“Don’t Ask Don’t blah blah blah”
You say Tomato
2 things about this trailer for an upcoming movie about graffiti in New York… 1. We cover street art, which is similar but I’m not expert on graff – so don’t ask me for some great opinion on the matter 2. I love the dramatic tension created in the fast cutting of opinions here, and then the sudden swelling of heroic Viking choruses of fat ladies in strapless gowns and pointy Viking Helmets comes out of nowhere from the dark ages, creating visions of brutish butchering armies in armor with V-shaped shields in one hand and cans of spray paint in the other. Onward, Upward! !!
