Oh, and we included The Hood Internet’s mash-up of Ice Cube and CFCF because we’re nice.
A reminder of just how bad New York was in the 1970s and 80s – and how far it’s come. Full gallery in the link.

Diet Wiegman has been transforming trash into instantly recognizable portraits by carefully arranging rubbish and manipulating light. Since at least the early 1980s, Wiegman has shown a unique and acute mastery of familiar artistic elements such as depth and light. Check out his website.
We’re not claiming to know anything about sports, but we do know a thing or two about douche bags. And, lo and behold, there is a high correlation between talented college athletes and douche.

No news on Harrison Ford or Mark Hamill – who’s looking great these days . . .
