!! OMG, I can haz jetpack?: 16th century drawing of CAT wearing JETPACK is a major mindf*ck !!

Rocket-cats-2-006.jpg
PETA‘s gonna need a time machine! The University of Pennsylvania recently digitized some 16th century drawings that were once prepared for a German prince during a peasant uprising in the year 1530. The images found their way to researcher Mitch Fraas, who upon closer observation discovered that the drawings feature KITTIES IN JETPACKS!
Yes, the cats were sporting jet packs even back in 1530! I just knew it! I guess the artist in question was pitching the idea of cats as a weapons to the German prince during their uprising, the idea being that the cats would eventually catch fire, and find their way back to their home (to the peasant farms) setting the whole farm on fire. MAKES SENSE! (no, it doesn’t.)

“Sort of a harebrained scheme,” says Frass, with the benefit of 500 years of hindsight. “It seems like a really terrible idea, and very unlikely the animals would run back to where they came from. More likely they’d set your own camp on fire.”

If only they’d had the vision to understand cats’ true purpose, which is being photographed for the internet and captioned in baby-talk by grown adults. Their lack of foresight is embarrassing!

!! OMG, you’re Ghana wanna take a look at these! The lost art of Ghana’s f*cked up movie posters !!

Ghana-Movie-Posters-7.jpg
I’m not sure who the 4th grader is that Ghana hired to do all of their versions of big Hollywood film posters, but whoever it is — they defo deserve an ice cream treat from the MacDonald’s drive-through on the way home!
The Planet Terror one above is my favourite. If Rose McGowan‘s character in the film had instead been played by Tan Mom while passing gas after she just finished eating some juicy watermelon, the artist would have just really NAILED IT! Check out some more after the jump!

!! OMG, help a sister out: Filmmaker Basil Shadid needs your assistance in completing his Jinkx Monssoon documentary ‘Drag Becomes Him’ !!

tumblr_mt3brvKllN1r7y4mbo1_400.gif
I’ve always liked Jinkx Monsoon. I saw her perform once, and not only could she really sing — like REALLY sing — but she was funny, and had picked a genre and style of music that was pretty ballsy (no pun-intended) considering the crowd she was out there facing. (Let’s just say she wasn’t doing any circuit house tracks.)
It didn’t matter though, the crowd loved it, and she radiated with good vibes the whole time. Well, documentary filmmaker Basil Shadid sees that too, in Jinkx. He’s been documenting her every move, since long before her days on RuPaul’s Drag Race, since before winning ‘America’s Next Drag Superstar’.
Now, Jinkx and Basil are looking for help in crowd-funding the remainder of his documentary ‘Drag Becomes Him’, which is nearing completion! Check out the trailer below, and click HERE to help out.
(Their project will only be funded if at least $20,000 is pledged by Thursday, Mar 13 2014 11:02 AM EST, so go check one of your 20 different jackets and see if you can find some loose change already!)

!! OMG, I take da phone and I put high up like dis: Art Critic JERRY SALTZ and 12 Supermodels Discuss the Selfie !!


Duckface can be high-fashion y’all! Art critic Jerry Saltz sat down with 12 supermodel including Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, and Ajak Deng recently and picked their brains on what they think makes a good selfie. An inspiring quote from The Vulture‘s ‘History Of The Selfie’:

Selfies come from all of us; they are a folk art that is already expanding the language and lexicon of photography. Selfies are a photography of modern life. Everyone has their own idea of what makes a good selfie. I like the ones that metamorphose into what might be called selfies-plus–pictures that begin to speak in unintended tongues, that carry surpluses of meaning that the maker may not have known were there. Barthes wrote that such images produce what he called “a third meaning,” which passes “from language to significance.”

That is some deep shit! What do you think makes a good selfie?

!! OMG, all hail the new Marina Abramović: Shia LaBeouf appears in ‘art exhibit’ called #IAMSORRY in L.A. (of course) !!

#ONLY-IN-L.A.!
After pulling the terribly tacky stunt of wearing a paper bag which read “I am not famous anymore” over his head to the red carpet premiere of Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac last week in Berlin — Shia LaBeouf took his form of art majeur to a gallery in L.A. this week!
In what he’s calling a “collaboration” with Finnish performance artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö and meta-modernist Luke Turner, Shia donned his paper-bag once more, and made it all that much more accessible! Yes, you common folk who want to revel in, and experience his ART — now can!

James Franco must be pissed about this! I mean, Shia is moving in dangerously close towards his territory. Save your pennies, and book your hotel now, because we can expect Shia to have his own booth at Miami next year! On the other hand, if Shia really wants to succeed in the art world, he needs to start pulling more gay shit. This paper bag thing is gonna get old fast!
Apparently the show is on from Tuesday, Feb. 11, through Sunday, Feb. 16 at the Cohen Gallery if you feel so inclined. Check out the full, play-by-play account of some BuzzFeed staffers after the jump!
