We haven't watched an episode of "The Simpsons" in probably four years, because let's face it, it has become just a tad too zany over the past decade. But we did catch both Banksy appearances on the seminal FOX program, including the one this past weekend where Marge, Homer, and the fam go to the Academy Awards. More after the jump . . .

We ponder: Does anyone think that Lebron James took time out of his busy All-Star Weekend activities to watch JR put up some massive mural pieces? Both JR and LBJ were in downtown Los Angeles working on their respective projects, so the thought may have crossed the NBA guy's mind. We digress. Time to get serious. Pictures of JR's murals after the jump . . .

We are always looking for something that moves street art into new directions, and as we just looked at Phlegm's piece on a fighter jet, we look at the female street art duo, Neozoon, as they go around Berlin pasting up their fur street pieces. Fur. That is right. Full fur silhouettes. And they wear great masks while doing it. Video after the jump . . .

A good way to send us into the weekend, a few photos of TED Award winner JR putting up pieces around Los Angeles, which he will be doing for the next few weeks for his "The Wrinkles of the City" project. Looks like JR put up some pieces in Venice and downtown already. Images after the jump . . .

We know that with the Academy Awards coming up, Banksy would be heading to Southern California to support, in his own way, the nomination of his film Exit Through the Gift Shop for Best Documentary Feature. And when in Hollywood, Lauren Conrad is bound to be the first person to spot, and Tweet, the newest Banksy piece.

We are trying to get you ready for the Academy Awards and Banksy's nomination for Best Documentary Feature with "Exit Through the Gift Shop." In preparation, or perhaps your parent's and/or elder relations preparation, there is a short film out called "B Movie," A film about the art of Banksy. Good catch up watching after the jump . . .

A lot of people are bummed that Coachella sold out and they can't see Kanye, Lauryn Hill, and Kings of Leon (er, maybe not) at this year's festival. But Coachella is pushing their Coachella Conversations, and we enjoyed hearing the conversing of 2x Coachella artist DJ Z-Trip (friend of Juxtapoz and DJ of our Seventh Letter Issue release party) and Shepard Fairey.
