Lest there be any confusion, this is a nautical themed show, not in any way associated with Nautica, the smelly cologne I wore instead of showering after soccer in middle school. Why nautical themed? I liked the squid song and found the folkways maritime music album and thought, why not? I saw someone get in a fight in a bar on Thanksgiving. If he wasn't a sailer, he should have been. I am thankful for his inspiration.
Wax Museum Pandemonium - squid
Mouse Rocket - underwater piano

Whether or not you like the genre, these kids put on one of the most high energy shows I've ever seen:
Magrudergrind on myplace
I haven't liked a band this fast since No Le$$.
(Also, R.J. is a geographer.)

There were some illustrations from last months Believer that made me stumble upon two things I thought were really cool.
First, a firefox add-on that turns all the adds in your internet browser into 'art.': Ad-art
Second was Packard Jennings website, who does sort of political public disruption performance pieces. His work kind of varies, but the above picture is from a series of cards he made to insert into business reply envelopes that show an office being transformed into a romanticist anarchist utopia. Bakunin would be proud. He also made a stereotyped 'anarchist' doll with packaging, put it into Target, then tried to buy it. The video is pretty funny: The manager keeps saying Target is a pro-family store and wouldn't carry anything like that: Packard Jennings
