His name is Lepos. He is not from here.

His name is Lepos. He is not from here.
from the fabulous GammaBlaBlog comes the tale of Lepos – “His name is Lepos. He is not from here. And is lost and is friendly.” Some very cute and funny street art appearing around NYC… keep an eye out! (and check out the GammaBlaBlog for more of his journey)


Lepos in Toronto. and Sean sent us a link to a great Lepos shot he took on east 11th st. this weekend, and sent us a link to an awesome page of Lepos spottings on Flickr!

show cruise

show cruise
the saga of Tom and Katie’s public love affair takes an even stranger turn as Tom Cruise hits Oprah today and puts on a bizarre display leaping from his chair, punching the air and falling to one knee to prove his love…


talk about over exposure. thousands of photos from their trip to Italy, kissing in public at every chance, press releases, and now Oprah (with more awkward Tom & Katie teeth gnashing.) why all the public demonstration? it’s so showy and staged looking.

Update: omg! from Radaronlinethis is too funny (thanks JukeBoxGraduate.) and via Gawker, more fun on the Cruise-is-straight media blitz in the NY Daily News
Tom tells Reader’s Digest – “They smell good. They look pretty. I love women. I do.”

drugs on The Simpsons

drugs on The Simpsons
our boy Jessie tipped us to the cool site Erowid – “documenting the complex relationship between humans and psychoactives” it’s packed with mind blowing stuff…

Drug References on The Simpsons (a very impressive list!)
– At Homer and Marge’s high school prom, a student shows up with a bong. The chaperone lets him in when he is told it is an asthma inhaler.
– Lisa drinks the water at a ride at Duff Gardens (supposed to be like “It’s a Small World” at Disneyland) after Bart dares her. She trips. (“I can see the music.” “I am the lizard queen.” “Can’t talk. Coming down.”)
– Barney smokes a cigar without removing the plastic wrapper and thinks that Sgt. Pepper is growing out of Homer’s back.
– In the episode that sees Homer sent to the South Pacific as a missionary, while there, he takes to licking toads, producing hugely dilated pupils and hilarious psychoactive effect. Bart via radio: “Dad, have you been licking toads?” “I have not not been licking toads.”

Scooby and Shaggy were pot heads! (but you knew that)
– Scooby and Shaggy were always the ones in the back of the van
– Scooby and Shaggy always had the munchies.

Image Galleries (lots of yummy photos)

one of the things we love best about the Lower East Side is the fresh street art that pops up every day. couple days ago we noticed WK had just hit a spot we’d recently photographed, adding some cool new wheat paste images. and Wooster’s got some great shots of him throwing it up.
