Artsy Fart of the Day: Floppy Disk Paintings
In 2011, London artist Nick Gentry solicited his fans and the Internet at large to send him their obsolete junk from yesterday’s technologies. This social art project has resulted in a series of portraits (as shown left) made from various donations of film negatives, floppy disks and CDs. Got some old computer or electronic stuff hanging around? Gentry’s donation box is always open.
Forty-five years after Neil Armstrong’s one giant leap, porn star Coco Brown is taking her two giant breasts into space, as part of a 2014 SpaceXC mission. Gizmodo says she’s appeared in “Big Booty Bomb 2,” but the closest credit I can find of hers on IMDB is “Bomb Ass Pussy 2.” I don’t know which is correct, but she must be a favorite of men who are into big asses and sequels.
Lest you think people just waste their time on the internet, porn clips on just two sites have generated 93 billion views since 2006, or roughly 15,000 views per person on Earth.
(That’s six views per person per day over a seven-year stretch. So, ya know, reasonable.)
