    This is a painting on a roof as seen in Google Maps. It looks like melted chocolate except it's really just paint. But I would lick it anyways just to make sure. It was the brainchild of artist Molly Dilworth, who wants to paint shit on the tops of all kinds of buildings so ... / Continue →

    Well folks, this just goes to show you can only dangle from rooftops staring into women's bedroom windows for so long before the boys in blue take notice. For shame, Spidey, for shame. And, on a completely and totally unrelated note that has absolutely nothing to do with this... / Continue →
