Love him, hate him, Banksy will always draw some sort of polarizing opinion. Most people will recognize that the man has wit that reaches the ends of the earth, while others think he is an overrated phenomenon that does not deserve the hype. Where do we stand? Well, simple; what other artist creates such a buzz, such a circus of excitement and debate every time they produce a new street piece or exhibition? Banksy creates EVENTS...

Somewhere, Mario Puzo is very proud of the Horse Head Pillow Case. For those of you that love the Godfather, you know that this is a fun revenge-light gag gift. But for those of you who may be dealing with someone who doesn't know the Godfather, this may ruin a first date and, um, trip to the bedroom.

This tumblr full of clever memes is exactly what it sounds like: a mash-up of scenes from Wes Anderson movies and Kanye West lyrics (and at times, lines from Anderson's movies adapted to Kanye's music videos). Both Anderson and West have an affinity for the finer things in life...

Apparently, all you need are 5 different colors of pushpins, and you can make these incredible portraits by Eric Daigh. Even though at times we think we are looking at mugshots (what, no smiles?), Daigh is at the top of his game with these new series of pushpin portraits.
