The official artist list has been released for 2010 Bonnaroo, which will be held on June 10–13 in Manchester Tennessee. In my opinion this has been the best group of artist to grace the event and it looks to be on hell of a show. A limited number of general admission tickets for the 2010 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be available for purchase starting at $234.50 plus applicable fees. After these tickets are sold out, tickets will continue to be sold for $249.50 while supplies last. You get all your ticket info here. So who’s going to be there? Here is the complete list starting with the headliners, and you know there is going to be some added acts leading up to the event.

The first campaign created by Lew’Lara/TBWA for IG (Internet Group) aims to advertise the women channel of the Brazilian portal, that was totally renewed. The channel brings now different news sections and offers the user a layout with easier navigation, analyses, discussions and subjects for reflection. The channel is one of the main websites of Brazil focused on female public. When I heard about this I was kind of skeptical. Not because I dont like women, but because I thought it might be tricky to convincingly make these women look like the iconic historical men they wanted to portray. I have to say though, A+ on this ad. Keep them coming!
Believe it or not, not all mushrooms are shit colored brown, and make you trip for 8 hours. While those mushrooms are cool in their own way, there are other kinds of mushrooms in the world. Here is a collection of some wild and colorful mushrooms found around the globe. And no you can not eat these and trip, in fact about half of these mushrooms are extremely poisonous and would kill you on contact, so don’t try to eat these if you come across one, freakin’ drug addicts.
Aircrews in World War II decorated their planes with pictures of pinups and pretty girls, typically modelled after the “cheesecake” art of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargo, and George Petty. It was (and still is) an interesting practice. Some see a deep, psychological impluse – attaching a talisman, a good-luck charm, to the aircraft as a way of warding off evil, death, and bullets. I don’t know. Maybe the young guys just liked looking at pictures of pin-ups. Different services and units had different policies about aircraft usage and decoration. Marine and Navy aircraft were generally shared by different pilots, with consequently less personalized decoration. Army Air Force airplanes were assigned to individual pilots (or in the case of bombers, to particular air crews). Thus, some of the most lavish and imaginative nose art adorned USAAF planes. I came across this set of army air craft art and thought it was awesome. I LOVE old stuff like this.
The Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea is a must go to event with a bunch of mud filled fun.
Some very unusual ways to meet your maker. Some just seem like very poor judgment calls though. In no particular order.
1979: Robert Williams, a worker at a Ford Motor Co. plant, was the first known human to be killed by a robot, after the arm of a one-ton factory robot hit him in the head.
2007: Kevin Whitrick, a 42-year-old man, committed suicide by hanging himself live on a webcam during an Internet chat session.
1998: Tom and Eileen Lonergan were stranded while scuba diving with a group of divers off Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The group’s boat accidentally abandoned them owing to an incorrect head count taken by the dive boat crew. Their bodies were never recovered. The incident inspired the film Open Water and an episode of 20/20.
1996: Sharon Lopatka, an Internet entrepreneur from Maryland, allegedly solicited a man via the Internet to torture and kill her for the purpose of sexual gratification. Her killer, Robert Fredrick Glass, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for the homicide.
1986: Over 1,700 people were killed almost instantly near Lake Nyos in Cameroon when a mass of approximately 100 million cubic metres of carbon dioxide that had collected at the bottom of the lake due to seepage from geothermal sources was suddenly released on August 21, 1986. The gas cloud immediately settled (carbon dioxide is heavier than air) and covered an area of up to 12 miles (20 km) from the lake, killing all oxygen-breathing life almost instantly – although the nearby vegetation, which consumes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, flourished afterwards.

Its become pretty much agreed in the scientific world that the Big Bang theory is what formed our universe. To think of that in a relation to the time that has passed from then until now is hard to fathom, until we came across this genius stop motion film by Jamie Bell. This is the final piece for her AS art course, a flipbook made entirely out of biro pens. It’s something like 2100 pages long, and about 50 jotter books. She said she worked on it for roughly 3 weeks. As this is quickly turning into a art heavy blog, we think it fits right in with our style.
Here is a collection of sculptures made entirely from butter. The funny part about these is there are a few that are just hilarious when you take a closer look. I’m not saying I could do any better but some are just bad. The Charlie Brown characters are pretty accurate aside from making the one black character actually black, a little unnecessary if you ask me. Then there is the Marilyn Monroe sculpture that looks like Liza Minnelli, give Monroe a little bit more respect geez. Then my favorite is the Tiger Woods sculpture at the end. First off it looks nothing like Tiger Woods. Secondly he is holding a leash with an actual tiger attached to it, which is a little ridiculous. Then placed nicely to the side of him is his balls, which in reality have been removed and claimed by his wife Elin, so fitting.
Valentine’s Day is this Sunday, which means that this week you’ll be on a quest for a gift that will get you laid without implying too much. The Valentine’s Day gift that you give your girlfriend says a lot about your relationship, and if you’re not careful your gift might send the wrong message. Here’s what her Valentine’s Day gift really says:
The Practical Gift:
What You Think It Says:
We’ve only been together for a short time, and I didn’t want to intimidate you by getting you something lavish and expensive, so instead I got you something that you can actually use a few times until it breaks!
What It Really Says:
We’ve only been dating for a month. There’s no way I’m gonna empty my bank account for your gift just yet. The item that you received from me was either a re-gift that I got from my weird cousin for Christmas, or it was right by the register at Walgreens, where I stopped to buy condoms on my way over to your place.
The Expensive Gift:
An unbelievable rope swing at Hanging Rock in Blackheath Australia, located in the Blue Mountains National Park.
