Meet Issei Sagawa, a 4 foot 9″, Japanese, college educated, and self professed pornographer, cannibal, and necrophiliac. This insane nut killed a young girl, ate her flesh for 48 hours, was caught red handed, fully confessed, and then was set free. Now he’s making money off of his story. Crazy right? Watch this mind blowing documentary and find out how he did it!
Has anyone else noticed the vicious smily face graffiti gang that owns the streets of Italy? These guys go from town to town painstakingly scribbling their frightening faces all over the city walls. Lets pray that these blood thirsty happy face bandits don’t attack the red, white, and blue next! As community service to the Italian nation, I began a catalog of these horendous crimes in hopes of tracking down these criminals and once and for all turning their smiles upside down!
I don’t neccassirily associate Italy with Communism, so I was shocked to find so many hammer and sickle logos and graffiti in every single city that I traveled in. The above plaque is actually part of a Communist bulletin board that I ran into in a small town called Montepulciano in Tuscany. For those of you uber nerds New Moon was filmed there. The entire country was covered with political graffiti, stencils, and posters. It’s interesting because you don’t find too much of that in the states. Sure you’ll run into an occasional “stop the war” bumper sticker on a minivan but seeing so many hammer and sickle’s and anti-government slogans spray painted on thousand year old buildings gave Italy a surprising twist. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite finds.
If you noticed that I haven’t been blogging much it’s because I spent the last 2 weeks on vacation in Italy. Wifi was not always available so instead of blogging I spent my days snapping photos of various things of interest in a country that has some of the most amazing art and historical sites on earth. I’m still going through all the photos but in the meantime here’s a small collection of textures, surfaces, and dilapidated walls, doors and buildings from Rome, Florence, Tuscany, and Venice.
LCD Soundsystem reminds us that robots will one day take over the world. But don’t worry all the robots will want to do is party, dance, and make out. Phew! Crisis averted!
