Our London correspondent, Butterfly, just sent us a few images of a new Banksy piece that went up where the famed King Robbo mural once stood in Camden. Butterfly told us, "Banksy drew the outline like King Robbo did back in 1985, and added a 'spray can' candle, as a well wisher to Robbo, currently in induced coma."

As things with Banksy go, there is a little bit of legend and myth involved with almost every piece of art and story you hear. Therefore, it makes sense that there is a new book out (published by Carpet Bombing Culture) called Banksy Myth & Legends that dissects and examines the various unsolved mysterious surrounding the UK-artist.

If you have 45 minutes today, and you probably do because it is a Friday and most people we know are in full online video sharing mode, you can watch this Banksy vs King Robbo street art "battle," the most mainstream street art battle you can think of, documented on UK's Channel 4.

We feel dirty just watching this, but we felt we should post this video of art dealers stealing, taking, ripping Banksy's work from a 2007 trip to Palestine (some of his best work in our minds) because, well it is interesting to see art dealers go to these lengths to steal, rob, take, rip a street art piece from a wall for a gallery show across the world.

Don’t know what to say about this, you have to watch it for yourself. Everyone has a hustle, but something seems silly about all this and from what it looks like this gallery held an opening reception selling all these “legally acquired” Bansky pieces? Most likely they will end up in a collectors house viewed only by a few elite friends, I say leave it in the street for all to appreciate.

Banksy did a bit of directional information for drivers in the UK recently, adding to the highway with a comment about the West Country and accents. We are not quite sure what it refers to, or what the accent is all about, but there must be laughter somewhere.

We mentioned that UK Channel 4 was going to air the Banksy-produced "The Antics Roadshow," this weekend, charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. Well someone placed the full 48 mins on the web for you to enjoy. Now it is back up, watch quickly...

Banksy sure is persistent at keeping his name in the headlines. He now has his own TV show, with the premise based on the history of behaving badly in public. Sounds like an interesting topic right? As Channel 4 states, “The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.”

Well, this is either the best timing, or the worse timing (our friends at Nuart think the same thing), as Banksy has produced a program for the UK's Channel 4 called "The Antics Roadshow," charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. It airs this Saturday, August 13.

Rupert Murdoch and his News Of the World team loved to hack a good phone line, and maybe Banksy was one of the lucky British folks who had a conversation recorded. Regardless, a clever piece posted on the Bristol artist's site . . .
