    In things that shouldn't exist news, this is 'Ghost In The Machine,' a robot programmed by artist Ted Lawson to draw a life-size picture of himself using his own blood as ink. Obviously, there are a million things wrong with this. I'm surprised it didn't bleed him dry (which ... / Continue →

    I don't know if there's too much iron in your diet or what but that dude looks RUSTY. This is a picture of a toilet with urine in it shaped like Iron Man's face. It won top prize in a recent Taiwanese art show, which makes sense. Get it? Because going pee is #1. You hear t... / Continue →

    This is a "life-size" (~5'8" if she were standing upright) mural of Samus Aran made from painted Nintendo game cartridges from different systems. It was originally commissioned by used-game retailer JJGames, but now they're selling it on eBay. Presumably because they realized... / Continue →

    Seen here daydreaming about going out like Catherine the Great (jk jk, she didn't really die that way), French "artist" Marion Laval-Jeantet has been injecting herself with horse blood as part of a performance/WTF art piece entitled 'May The Horse Live In Me'. Why? I don't kn... / Continue →

    The Frame Napkin is a $40 fabric napkin with a frame silk-screened on it. That way, after you're finished stuffing your face like a glutton, you've created a work of art with the smattering of food that didn't make it to your pie-hole (or did but wouldn't stay down). Mmmm, vo... / Continue →

    This is a video of little birds playing guitar as part of some wack-ass French (of course) art exhibit. For his installation in The Curve, Boursier-Mougenot creates a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments... / Continue →

    This is a piece of "art" by a really sucky artist that I can't even believe even has the gall to CONSIDER themselves an artist. The piece is for sale at the Art Basel gallery in Miami Beach. The asking price? $75,000. I'd rather eat shit! The heads are connected to servos ... / Continue →
