THE crowd at a ‘prog rock’ gig had no idea when to applaud as they could never be sure the song had finished.

I’m digging this nice visual collection of vintage portable record players amassed by Japanese turntable enthusiast, Fumihito Taguchi. Sure, they probably sound like shit when you play a record, but they look just so gosh darn cool. The manufacturing dates for these record players range from approximately 1960 to 1980. These wonderful artifacts will be on display at Tokyo’s Lifestyle Design Center from July 30 to August 28, 2016. You can view...

"Street art is considered criminal vandalism," LA-based street artist Plastic Jesus informs us in his Instagram commentary on Stanford rapist Brock Turner who was caught raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. "If damage exceeds $400 it is a felony with up to 3 years jail time. Below $400 is misdemeanor 1 year jail time. And let's be honest if the city send out one guy with a pot of paint and a brush they are gonna cost it at more than $400."

White rapists like Brock Turner face lighter sentences than street artists caught red-handed. At his sentencing, Turner faced up to 14 years in prison. Prosecutors sought a six-year prison term. He was sentenced to six months in jail and released a mere 3 months into his prison term, for good behaviour.

Justice, just ice.

Do not look at this under any circumstances.
The cover of ‘Hara Kiri’ magazine #132.The text reads: ‘What young people want? Eat the old.’ French adult satire magazine Hara Kiri, was one of a few magazine published back in the early 1960s that helped further along the proliferation of adult-oriented satire magazines like its American counterparts MAD and National Lampoon. Since the European outlook on humor was, let’s say, much more “open-minded” than in the U.S., Hara Kiri was able to b...
