This Huge Crashing Wave in a Seoul Aquarium Is Actually a Gigantic Optical Illusion

I live in Seoul, and whenever I'm back in the West, I hear the same question over and over: what's Gangnam like? Presumably Westerners wouldn't have had anything to ask me before the virality of "Gangnam Style," and specifically of the music video satirizing the image of that part of the Korean capital. In Korean, "Gangnam" literally means "south of the river," the waterway in question being the Han River, which runs through modern Seoul much as the Thames and the Seine run through Londo...

Facebook And YouTube Copyright-Police Bots Are Blocking Classical Musicians’ Concert Streams, Sometimes Mid-Performance

And the music at issue is almost always in the public domain. The bots, developed and trained on popular music, are finding performance videos of, Bach, Mozart, Chopin and so on to be too similar to existing commercial recordings by other musicians and automatically blocking them. Then the appeal process with these enormous corporations is frustrating and way too slow. – The Washington Post

DEVO Is Now Selling COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment: Energy Dome Face Shields

According to DEVO's co-principle songwriter and bassist Gerald Casale, the experimental art band turned early MTV pop-punk darlings were “pro-information, anti stupid conformity and knew that the struggle for freedom against tyranny is never-ending.” Their singular performance garb also set them apart, and none more so than the bright red plastic Energy Dome helmets they donned 40 years ago this month, upon the release of their third album, Freedom of Choice. The record, which the ba...

‘The New Facebook Review Board Will Have No Influence Over Anything That Really Matters In The World’: Siva Vaidhyanathan

“It will hear only individual appeals about specific content that the company has removed from the service — and only a fraction of those appeals. The board can’t say anything about the toxic content that Facebook allows and promotes on the site. It will have no authority over advertising or the massive surveillance that makes Facebook ads so valuable. … It won’t dictate policy for Facebook Groups, where much of the most dangerous content thrives. And most importantly, the board will have no sa...

Facebook’s New Content Oversight Board Could End Up Overseeing A Lot More Than Facebook

“In designing this new organization, Facebook’s leaders … formed a separate legal trust with an initial $130 million investment from Facebook. But they also empowered that trust to both accept funding from sources outside Facebook and to form companies of its own. That structure would ensure Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg couldn’t just shut down the board if he didn’t like its decisions. But it also opens up the possibility that the trust might some day spin off additional oversight boards for, s...

Salvador Dalí’s Tarot Cards, Cookbook & Wine Guide Re-Issued as Beautiful Art Books

Maintaining an aggressively upward-waxed mustache; making a surrealist film with Luis Buñuel that Buñuel described as "nothing more than a desperate impassioned call for murder"; bringing an anteater on The Dick Cavett Show: Salvador Dalí can be described as a master of attention-grabbing gambits, by his admirers and detractors alike. No wonder, then, that he appears to have some serious admirers at Taschen. Known as a publisher of books that draw a great deal of press for their boundary-pushin...

Kara Swisher: “I am not trying to be glib here, because solving the problem of how to deal with speech across the largest and most unwieldy communications platform in human history … may be beyond the capabilities of anyone .. given that Facebook and [Mark] Zuckerberg have purposefully created a system that is ungovernable.” – The New York Times

Watch Picasso Create a Masterpiece in Just Five Minutes (1955)

"One day in Paris a wealthy woman goes into a café and sees Picasso," writes Alastair Dryburgh in Everything You Know About Business Is Wrong. After a few minutes, she summons up the courage to approach him. 'Monsieur Picasso,' she asks, 'would you make a portrait of me? I'll pay you anything you want.' Picasso nods, grabs a menu, and in five minutes has sketched the woman's portrait on the back of it. He hands it to her. 'Five thousand francs,' he says. 'But Monsieur Picasso, it only to...

The Best Art Parodies Seem To Have Started In Russia, And Now They’re Everywhere

A Facebook group started in Moscow now has tens of thousands of members worldwide, making art of the mundanities of lockdown. “They have been posting their work at a clip of more than 1,000 items a day, each time attaching their own photo alongside an image of the original art. They have corralled family members, pets and household items to channel the iconic and, as the Munchs and Kahlos pile up, so do the obscure — a flexible air-conditioning duct; a collage of plastic forks; a ring of strung...
