"Japanese artist Dehara Yukinori’s latest work strays from his past of creating boxed original sculptures. His latest entry into the figure world is minuscule versions of his art pieces. In what we’d call a smart move to do something completely different from the years of sculpting paper clay and then packaged to appear like a toy figure, these pieces will have its freedom and at the same time be intimate. You’ll have to move in closer to see his objects."

Water Main Breaks At UCLA Makes Huge Joke of Drought In California





Some would call it an assault on how UCLA sees the drought in California. Other would call it a huge waste of water in a time where lawns are becoming deserts. In either case UCLA and Sunset Blvd took on a surreal look with water pouring into campus. Creating an almost idyllic are to cool off in on campus.

Damn, who wouldn't want to go there and see it for themselves.

LA Times breaks down the story

I'm sure some movie makers might think about using the campus as a set after how breathtaking some of the imagery of the event looked.

TTDILA COMICS #34 - The Popular Aquaman


by ARG




click comic to expand.

With all the talk about Thor having a sex change.
DC comics will soon realize that they as well should 
change their most unpopular Aquaman.
I know what you are thinking it should be called Aquawoman 
It's not "She-Thor" and it's not she-Aquaman , it is just Aquaman.

Enjoy the comic.
