All over this album you'll gonna hear some funny German quotes by the German fictional puppet TV character "Pittiplatsch" also known as famous Dr.Waumiau.

afropunk.jpgAfro-Punk: The Rock n Roll Nigger Experience
„This is dedicated to every black kid who has ever been called a nigger... and to every white kid who thinks they know what that means.“ So steht's im Vorspann der Dokumentation „Afro-Punk - The Rock n Roll Nigger Experience“ von James Spooner:
James Spooner is the director of Afro-punk, a documentary film exploring race identity in the punk scene. He produced his film mostly out of New York, having had no previous training in film (he'd studied sculpting in college). As a DIY effort, he rigorously toured the film across the country like a band, showing it as many venues as possible, and rapidly amassing a devoted cult following, largely among minority punks centralized around a message board on his website afropunk.com

easyrider.jpgPeter Fonda's Easy Rider Memorabilia to be Auctioned by Heritage!
The "Captain America" flag patch is just one piece of Easy Rider memorabilia that Peter Fonda is auctioning off next month through Heritage Auction Galleries. Also on the block are Fonda's Department of Defense badge that decorated the jacket, a prototype gold Rolex he wore in the film (but not the one he tosses away), a gold record of the soundtrack, and other personal items unrelated to the film.

Port of New York
Port of New York is a 1949 film shot in semidocumentary style. The film is notable for being Yul Brynner's first movie. The film, which is very similar to T-Men (1947), was shot on location in New York City. The movie was directed by László Benedek with cinematography by George E. Diskant.
The film tells the story of a customs and treasury agent out to stop the distribution of opium, that came in on a ship in the Port of New York but was smuggled off by drug dealers. The leader of the drug dealers is the suave Vicola (Brynner).

kuba.jpgIch bin Kuba
Directed (1964) by Mikhail Kalatozov. Starring Sergio Corrieri, Salvador Wood, José Gallardo and Raúl García. (A visually stunning film).
„Ich bin Kuba“ wird von George Lucas bis Michael Ballhaus als großer Einfluss angegeben. Ich habe ihn gesehen, er zeigt schon in den sechzigern die abgefahrensten Kameraspielereien. Unbedingt ansehen, filmhistorisch sehr relevant.

fakepromis.jpgAlison Jackson: Fake-Promi-Bilder
Dass Bilder lügen, wusste man schon vor Alison Jackson, den irritierenden Reiz solcher Fälschungen kannte man allerdings so nicht. Bilder sind für die englische Fotografin wahrer als die Wirklichkeit. So gilt ihr Interesse jenen ikonischen Figuren, die wir zwar nur aus den Massenmedien kennen, an deren Leben wir aber leichter teilhaben können als an dem unserer eigenen Verwandten: die königliche Familie etwa oder Paris Hilton. Jackson inszeniert Authentizität. Ihre Aufnahmen von Doppelgängern imitieren Paparazzibilder. Sie zeigen die angeblichen Prominenten aus der Distanz, die Sicht halb versperrt, so verschwommen manchmal, dass man die Person nur erahnt. Bildeigenschaften, die einen voyeuristischen Urtrieb anscheinend so stark ansprechen, dass kurzweilig das Gehirn aussetzt: Wenn das wahr wäre dabei zählt für Jackson nicht, was wahr ist, sondern was möglich, ja sogar, was nur im Gedankenspiel ertastbar ist.

Inscribed in the living tile: Type in the Toronto subway
The Toronto subway has a typographic heritage all its own, starting with a unique font. But, with renovation after renovation and after a series of new station additions, signage and wayfinding in the system are a total mess. The latest “standard” in Toronto subway signage uses fake Helvetica and is a clone of Massimo Vignelli’s work from 40 years ago.

bush.jpgBush 69
Jonathan Yeo, 36, britischer Künstler, hat ein Porträt von George W. Bush aus Pornofotos zusammengebastelt. Yeos Collage, für die er mehr als hundert Porno-Magazine ausgeschlachtete, wurde in einer Londoner Galerie ausgestellt. “Das Bild ist einfach nur gemacklos. Wie kommt jemand nur auf die Idee, mit Porno-Material ein Bild unseres Präsidenten zu machen?”, sagte ein Sprecher der Republikanischen Partei aus Bushs Heimat-Bundesstaat Texas der britischen Zeitung The Sun. Yeo erklärt es so: “aus Jux”. Er reagierte mit dem Porno-Portät ausserdem auf die Entscheidung der Kuratoren der Bush Library in Texas, einen Porträtauftrag an ihn wieder zurückzuziehen.

Und so.

glofish.jpgGlofish: fluorescent pet fish
A while ago, scientists at the National University of Singapore created transgenic, fluorescent zebra fish by injecting red, green, and orange fluorescence genes from a jellyfish into the fish eggs. They did this so the fish could help detect environmental pollutants. Now, you can actually have them for pets! They are marketed under the name GloFish, and look very cool under a black light.

Kathy Griffin’s Emmy Remarks to Be Censored because?
In her speech, Griffin said that “a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.” She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim, “This award is my god now!” The off-color remark was to say, “Suck it, Jesus.”
