Ever see something funny like this and wonder, “I really wish I knew who was behind this hilarious public creation of art/vandalism”? Well, wonder no more!! For the current price tag of US $110,100.00 “jaybuysthings” is willing to tell you the truth! He says:
“If you win this auction I will mail you a piece of paper revealing the true identity of “Banksy”. I have uncovered his identity by matching up the prices of his sold pieces to corresponding tax records. I will reveal no more details. The winner of this auction is the only person I will ever share this information with. The piece of paper will say his name, nothing more. I give you 100% assurance that it is most certainly the full name of the street artist known as “Banksy”. Ebay previously ended this auction because I was selling something that was not “tangible”. It is now tangible”.
Place your bid here.
Fecal Face thinks that this might be another one of banksy’s stunts.
Two days sixteen hours left! Better jump on it!
Ben Tyne (If he didn’t already see this on Fecal Face) is going to be jazzed!
Since I just posted something about ptborides.com it’s appropriate to let you in on this.
Last night, at Jackson Creek Press, along with Paul Caleb, we made something awesome. This awesome thing will be posted on ptborides.com on Monday Jan. 17th. Be sure to check it out, you’ll have a chance to win!
Normally this is something I would be all over. But here is the rub:
I happily spent last week reading through Nick Hornby’s latest novel — Juliet, Naked. The book is good. You might like it. I liked it, a lot.
If you have already read Juliet, Naked then you will understand what I am saying here. These demo songs by The Smith’s showing up on a (run-by-fans) Morrissey message board is too weirdly coincidental. I’m going to skip the download and continue to enjoy the versions I have come to know and love since forever.
Would you like to know how I knew this was going to be good?
I received a text message on my cellular telephone from Christopher Martin Vyn advising me, as soon as I had the opportunity to do do so, to YouTube “Epic Meal Time”.
This was the first one I watched. The “Breakfast Booze” one was a hit as well.
Roger Ebert believes this Youtube edit should be considered for an Oscar. Here’s why:
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent classic “Man With a Movie Camera.” (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST.
I’m not sure how the whole Oscar nomination thing works . . . but watching this clip is well worth your 3 minutes and 35 seconds.
