Barak Obama's Crush

Yes, I am a man in all senses of the word.  Finally, something to get me excited about the '08 presidential race.

Queerer than we can suppose.

No matter what you think of Richard Dawkins or his philosophy and (non)beliefs, there is no doubt he is one of the most thought-provoking, entertaining and convincing thinkers of our times. The video below is just another example of how Dawkins has managed to set himself up as the leading voice of thought in the Western world.

Personally, I think he got it right at the beginning of this video when he quotes British geneticist, J.B.S. Haldane, in his revision of a quote from Hamlet.
"I suspect that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of, or can be dreamed of, in any philosophy. That is the reason why I have no philosophy myself, and must be my excuse for dreaming."

Afrterlife Bling

British artist, Damian Hirst, has an eye for death unlike most. His art frequently flirts with the theme of mortality in ways that are jarring, dazzling, and in some ways, downright creepy.

Hirst is not without his critics. Some have trivialized his art as nothing more than cheap visual effects pandering to pop cultural trends. Perhaps it's the fact that Hirst is one of the most economically successful living artist in the history of the world that makes him such an easy target, who knows?

One thing is certain, though, with his latest creation, a $99 Million dollar skull, death has never ever looked so "ghettoliciously" beautiful.
