Tactical Briefing - #NOSTARBUCKS | Adbusters... →
Between November 22-28 the whole world will light up with seven days of Carnivalesque Rebellion! Think of it as an adventure, as therapy, as Buy Nothing Day times a hundred … think of it as the World Cup of global activism – a week of postering and pranks, of talking back at your profs and speaking truth to power. Some of us will poster our schools and neighborhoods and just break our daily...

Israeli rabbis clamp down on burka - Telegraph →
um, what? “There is a real danger that by exaggerating, you are doing the opposite of what is intended [resulting in] severe transgressions in sexual matters,” Shlomo Pappenheim “At first, I just wore a wig,” one burka-wearing woman told the Haaretz newspaper. “Now when I see a woman with a wig, I pray to God to forgive her for wearing that thing on her...

Graffiti Artist Dain Teaches the French About...
Brooklyn-based graffiti artist Dain’s opening his first solo exhibition at the Lebenson Gallery, in Paris’ hip Marais district tomorrow. Entitled ‘Born Again’ as a nudge to his use of old-school icons, the show presents pieces made exclusively for the occasion. The artist’s style is deeply cross-genre: he mixes street art references and graffiti with drawing, collage and varnish. Some...
Wi-Fi Coming to New York City Subways If the city’s willing to go to the trouble to go wireless, why do I have to take a shuttle nine weekends out of 10 because they’re “doing repairs on the tracks”? But I digress… There goes my phone’s battery life…

WikiLeaks is currently in the news because its Afghan War logs comprise one of the largest and most controversial intelligence leaks to date. But while WikiLeaks is relatively new to the public, it is actually a product of a long-established culture. That culture has already had a banner-bearer; a quintessential exemplification of its values — The Pirate Bay. WikiLeaks is akin to The Pirate...
Death of the mouse: defended [tech crunch] →
If companies like Apple listened to some of these short-sighted demands from users, we’d have an uglier and bulkier iPhone with a keyboard. It undoubtedly wouldn’t be as good. That’s because most users have no imagination. They want what they know. When they say they want the future, what they are really saying is that they want a moderately updated version of the past.

Has a Secret Pool Been Discovered in Williamsburg?... →
4nyc: image via NY Times Between info received from NYCtheblog and some suspecting images via Google Maps, there appears there may be a secret pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! This is completely uncalled for. Clearly some hipster’s parents went to the trouble of either building their undeserving son/daughter a pool or they just sent numerous checks to them and indicated in the memo line...

1. Amy Adams as Janis Joplin We recently learned that Amy Adams, whose sweet, girlish film persona could not be farther from the gritty, hard-drinking, raspy-voiced rock legend’s, has landed the role of Janis Joplin in an as yet untitled biopic. Though we’re excited to see a movie about the Texan crooner who died too young, we just can’t picture this doe-eyed leading lady in the starring...

It stars the wonderful Steve Buscemi as Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, a crooked politician-cum-mobster. Why we’re excited: Aside from the...
