Todd Goldman, Plagiarist.

I meant to post this sometime back when my friend Jack first brought it to my attention. But life got in the way. Now the accusations are really catching some traction.

Todd Goldman is a pop-culture artist who has had quite a bit of success in the art world. But that’s coming to end, turns out he’s a fraud.

On the left is Dave Kelly’s (Shmorky’s) Purple Pussy comic from September 19, 2001. On the right is a painting by Todd Goldman, as seen in a Los Angeles art gallery.

And that’s just the tip of the ice berg. For the full extent of Todd’s plagiarism, the museums who are dropping him, and the legal action his lawyers are taking to try and shut down the internet storm that’s risen around him, go here.

This is a plaster cast of a large Pogonomyrmex badius nest (ant mound). This nest consisted of 135 chambers and 12 meters of vertical shafts. The top-heavy distribution of chamber area and spacing is typical for the species, as are the helical shafts and the decrease of chamber size with depth.

This is an amazing link!

Awesome! Old people rock!

With a combined age of more than 3,000 years, they are not the most obvious rock ‘n’ rollers. Brought together for a TV documentary, they have attracted a cult following after recording a version of The Who’s My Generation and are destined for chart stardom.

The group, which is fronted by bingo devotee Alfie Carretta, 90, were handpicked by BBC documentary-maker Tim Samuels who was shooting a hard-hitting series on the isolation of the elderly in Britain.

As the programme evolved, Samuels decided as a finale to gather his elderly subjects to make a memorable musical statement about their situation.

The project snowballed. U2’s producer Mike Hedges and Band Aid video director Geoff Wonfor became involved, and recording time was secured at the famous Abbey Road recording studios.
