No peace for yankee hipster in Denmark

Denmark – Yankee Hipster Shepard Fairey, well known for the Obama ‘Hope’ poster design, was beaten to a bloody pulp by two men for being a imperialistic bastard, and saw his mural named ‘Peace Dove’ being defecated with the text “No Peace! Go home Yankee Hipster.”

The designer of the Obama ‘Hope’ poster decided to imperialize The Kingdom of Denmark, which didn’t sit well with at least two Danish citizens who weren’t looking forward to the Obamaisation of their country, who promptly beat him up in front of the Kodboderne 18 nightclub last Saturday.

Anti-American sentiments came to a head as the Danish defenders shouted things about the “Obama Illuminati” to Fairey and his colleague Romeo Trinidad. The LA-based artist believes the attack was sparked by a misunderstanding over his mural commemorating the demolition of the legendary “Ungdomshuset” (youth house) at Jagtvej 69. The building, a long-term base for Copenhagen’s left-wing community, was controversially demolished in 2007.

Left-wing Anarchists where pretty pissed off about this mural though, because they understand very well what America means when they talk about peace: Armed oppression and a total police state, and Judeochristian Capitalistic American values that only serves to widen the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘havenots.’ And as Ben Franklin once said: “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” making the Anarchists automatically more American than the Yankee artist.

More Ghanaian movie posters that will melt your brain into porridge

We’ve previously expressed our love for the hand-painted mobile cinema posters of Ghana, many of which took extreme creative liberties with films’ plots. For example, who knew that Cujo was an evil Cocker Spaniel?

Industrial in the Park, Westerpark Amsterdam

Amsterdam – Electronic Body Music under a sunny sky with the Westergasfabriek as a backdrop. That’s always a good idea, right? It’s probably there to celebrate finding the most blackest planet in the know universe or something. Regardless of the reason, historically speaking events like this have always been fun.

If you are on Feestboek, you might already have received an invite. If not, you probably should crash the party or something. It’s not something that hasn’t been done before, but it could very well be fun. The idea is simple, as always:

Idea. Picnic in the park. Bring snacks and drink to share. We will arrange music. You just have to bring yourselves.
Maybe we’ll see you there, and maybe you can help spread the totalitariër gospel. At worst you’ll be jumping to EBM in the rain, like a boss!

Starwars Coins Coined


The coins will be issued in November

Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Yoda are among Star Wars characters who will appear on coins that will be legal tender in the Pacific island of Niue.

A collection of four silver $2 coins costs NZ$469 (£240) while silver-plated $1 coins cost NZ$23.50 (£12) each.

All Niueans are New Zealand citizens and Queen Elizabeth II, who appears on the reverse of coins, is head of state.

Coin-issuer New Zealand Mint said they were gift products and would not be used “to go buy an ice cream with”.

The first 10 silver-plated Star Wars coins will be available in November with a further 30 to be issued in the future.

A maximum of 50,000 copies of each silver-plated coin will be produced.

No more than 7,500 of each of the silver coins – which contain 1oz of the precious metal – will be produced.

In April, Niue premier Toke Talagi defended stamps celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton which featured a perforated line that split the couple.

Bert & Ernie are muppets

Sesame Street – Despite social pressure, Bert and Ernie decide they aren’t going to allow the Sesamestreet government to dictate the nature of their relationship by getting married. Love and friendship is a relationship between people, not between people and the government and just as real without marriage.

The Sesamestreet Government responded on Facebook saying that Bert and Ernie are the ones that are not real:

Bert and Ernie are best friends.  They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.

Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets™ do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.”

Ernie responded to the accusation of just being a political muppet and being denied the right to have a sexual orientation by the Sesame Street regime by sticking a banana in his ear. “If it works against crocodiles, it works against these government parasites.” When told that there aren’t any crocodiles in Sesame Street, he stated “See. It works perfectly!”
