!! OMG, better late than never! New works by Andy Warhol discovered on 30-year-old Amiga computer floppy disks !!

‘Andy2’ (pictured above) is one of the newly-discovered works which was found on an old floppy disk created on an Amiga computer from 1985 with the help of artist Cory Arcangel. Acording to ABC.net.au:

Carnegie Mellon art professor Golan Levin said the work was recovered thanks in part to someone posting on YouTube a 1985 infomercial showing Warhol using an Amiga computer to create a digital portrait of singer Debbie Harry.
A Warhol fan, artist Cory Arcangel, saw the YouTube video and in 2011 began investigating whether there was more computer art from Warhol to be found.
His inquiry brought him to The Andy Warhol Museum’s archives in Pittsburgh, where he found a cache of floppy disks that remained unlabelled because the museum lacked the outdated technology needed to read them.
Arcangel helped link the museum with the computer club at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, one of the top US technology schools.
After some digital sleuthing, the club used a process called retro-computing to reveal the images in a matter of hours.

And here I was thinking that Cory Arcangel‘s biggest contribution to society was going to be to create giant video game art for us to wander into and play in the middle of New York City while super baked — but then he goes out and helps fix history n stuff! Nice one, dood! Check out another couple of the newly-discovered Warhol works after the jump!

There are already enough smells in my apartment to warrant NOT adding a skunk to the mix of things, but a bunch of people out there actually do own skunks as pets (and let them crawl into their mouths too, apparently).
South Carolina based animal photographer Vincent J Musi travels to Ohio Skunk Fest where he sets up a photobooth each year. Check out his photos of some of the eccentric owners after the jump!

This Jurassic World concept art comes care of Nathan Schroeder, an artist who has worked on films like Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Avengers and Thor. According to JoBlo:

The first image (click to see it bigger) evidently shows the island of Kaui, doubling as Isla Nublar in the film; we can see a monorail running the entirety of the island, with a newfangled Visitor’s Center in the middle.

Kind of reminds me of someplace Naomi Campbell might live. It’s chic! Are you excited to check out Jurassic World when it hits theatres? The film is set to be directed by Colin Trevorrow and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson. It’s scheduled for a June 2015 release date.

!! OMG, you’re PUTIN that where, hon!? The 3D-printed Vladimir Putin and homophobe Phil Robertson of ‘Duck Dynasty’ BUTT PLUGS have arrived !!

g6qR2Jg-1.jpg
We already know that Vladimir Putin is a shitty leader, but this really isn’t going to help his reputation any!
This week, some Canadian genius inventor posted these images of the 3D-printer-created silicone butt plugs he made on Reddit, and if the popularity of his items and the support that he’s received speaks to anything — the man may never have to work a day in his life again!
According to the artist’s website, his works are inspired by politics, are skin safe, and seem to lean in support of gay rights judging by his choice of subjects. (I know what you’re thinking! “This is a total smear campaign!”)
Anyhow — noted homophobe (and fake redneck) Phil Robertson of ‘Duck Dynasty’ fame is up next for butt plug stardom, and you can order these for all of your co-workers’ secret Santa gifts early by checking out his website HERE! Can someone please send one to Putin?

!! 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!
