Puke Art

In another ode to the weird, I give you Millie Brown.  I read that you can buy one of her pieces for the bargain price of £1,500.

We regurgitate Huffingtonpost's story :

Some people will do anything in the name of art. Performance artist Millie Brown has mastered the art of regurgitation, and we mean that literally. Brown's work is called "Nexus Vomitus," which involves Brown drinking colored milk and then spewing it back out onto white screens to an acoustic accompaniment of opera singers Patricia Hammond and Zita Syme.

Those of you who have seen Lady Gaga's Monster Ball will already be familiar with Brown's work. In a video interlude, Brown vomits color onto Gaga's dress.

About her art, Brown says: "I drink coloured milk — the process is not painful but after several hours of vomiting it can take its toll, which is why I limit the number of colours I use. … The use of canvas is a natural progression from my early performances. I started puking down myself in various outfits, but wanted more longevity from the end result."

Who knew that bulimia could be an art form?

 

Pre-Crime Technology already being tested in the U.S.

Orwell's vision of the future is drawing nearer and I blame Steven Spielberg.  New technology is being field tested now that helps to profile possible terrorists.  Will we have to wait for the results of this testing or will the world of Minority Report be our future... and will Tom Cruise make us into scientologists in the process?

Sharon Weinberger reports for Nature.com : "Planning a sojourn in the northeastern United States? You could soon be taking part in a novel security programme that can supposedly ’sense’ whether you are planning to commit a crime.

Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST), a US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) programme designed to spot people who are intending to commit a terrorist act, has in the past few months completed its first round of field tests at an undisclosed location in the northeast, Nature has learned.

Like a lie detector, FAST measures a variety of physiological indicators, ranging from heart rate to the steadiness of a person’s gaze, to judge a subject’s state of mind. But there are major differences from the polygraph. FAST relies on non-contact sensors, so it can measure indicators as someone walks through a corridor at an airport, and it does not depend on active questioning of the subject."

Shit Burgers Anyone?

This is another one of those things that I just can't make up.  I give you shit burgers.

 

Stokereport.com serves us shit on a shingle :

"Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, came up with the novel approach to number ones after Tokyo Sewage asked him to come up with a way of using up the city's waste.

Mr Ikeda found that the poo which filled up the system was packed with protein because of all the bacteria.

His research team extracted the proteins to create an artificial steak, which is turned red with food colouring and flavoured with soy.

In a YouTube video posted recently he explained: 'We add reaction enhancer and put it in the exploder to produce the artificial meat.'... "

This really is a shitty subject.

 

New Apple Technology Prevents Filming of Live Events

Pirates take back your iPhones.  Apple joins the evil empire.

Fox News reports (Yes, Fox) : CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Fans at concerts and sports games may soon be stopped from using their iPhones to film the action -- as a result of new technology being considered by Apple, The Times of London reported Thursday.

The California company has plans to build a system that will sense when a person is trying to film a live event using a cell phone and automatically switch off their camera.

A patent application filed by Apple, and obtained by the Times, reveals how the software would work. If a person were to hold up their iPhone, the device would trigger the attention of infra-red sensors installed at the venue. These sensors would then instruct the iPhone to disable its camera.

Other features, such as the phone’s ability to make a call or send text messages, would not be affected.

The software is seen as an attempt to protect the interests of event organizers and television broadcasters who have exclusive rights to film an event. These companies often sell their own recordings but are frustrated when cell phone videos appear online via websites such as YouTube, allowing people to watch the concert free.

The concept may also allow Apple to reach more favorable terms with record labels when negotiating deals to sell content though its iTunes online store.

Apple filed its patent application with U.S. authorities 18 months ago, but details only became available this month. It is not clear if Apple intends to develop the concept into a working system, and if so, whether it will be implemented within the company’s devices. The latest version of iPhone is expected in September.

Apple declined to comment.

Well. Not really.  Steve Wozniak would have never let this happen.
