Marina Abramovic is an artist.  According to the infallible wikipedia she describes herself as the “grandmother of performance art”.

It appears that she also fancies herself a photographer:


How EDGY!  How RAW!  How REAL!
… *gasp*

I can’t find any deep “purpose” statement about this exhibit from the artist. I’m sure it would be priceless.

Well that was a sufficient waste of time, bandwidth, CPU cycles, etc…

So basic pictures like that make people famous enough to get an exhibit in the MoMA?  Good to know… good to know…

You can check out some more equally yawn-worth pics from the artist if you need more reasons to be mad that she’s famous for crap like this and you’re not.

Illegal gun? *facepalm* are people still using that term?

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his national coalition against illegal guns plan to air a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl where he and Boston Mayor Tom Menino act out something anti-illegal-gun that plays on the rivalry between NY and Boston.  According to the article, National Super Bowl ads are fetching a record $3.5 million for 30-second spots.

Full Story – HERE

$3.5M for a 30 second spot?  Wouldn’t that money be better spent on something that will actually make a difference?  Perhaps pay for some police overtime? Maybe crack a few cases? Make a bunch of arrests?   Nahhhh forget it, this is more showy.

We need to repair the broken Federal background check system!  Gun show loophole! Gun show loophole!  How about everyone wakes up and smells the coffee and realizes that criminals do not care about background checks.  Even if that system became so air tight that a criminal could not possibly buy a new gun, the used market and underground market would still thrive.

Anyone want to weigh in?

Blog reader Javi sent this in, and I thought it was too good to not post:

I went to the Tallahassee gun show today and found this (condor airsoft) rig selling for 265:

It came with that thin piece of tin as a “ballistics” armour. I wish I could say they were selling it as an airsoft product, but that wasnt the case. They also had 2 older LE vests that looked like they have been run over by a truck for 600. To top of the day, this guy happened to be standing next to me at another booth looking at glocks. He explained that he left his glock in the street on day and the garbage truck ran it over which broke the “thingy.” He insited on buying a 9mm, and other things. I had a video of another conversation he had with a vendor about getting a ccw, but the audio is crap. Needless to say he and the ridiculous “tactical hillbilly’s” walking around provide some good entertainment for the crap lousy show it was.

LOL too good.  I especially like how that guy’s Glock was ran over by a garbage truck after he left it in the street.

Anyone else have any good gun show tales?

If this doesn’t sell the game, I don’t know what will:

I’ve always been a fan of Rob Riggle Jr..  In addition to being an actor and a comedian he’s also a USMC officer.

So many good lines in the video… “This is my clan, the bitch slaps. Don’t get slapped.”

Call Of Duty Elite requires Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3, so if you need it they dropped the price over at Amazon.

Verdict on this one?

Normally I’m irritated when I hear whining about how gun owners are portrayed, but…

Judging by the trailer, this movie won’t do anyone any good.  Have a problem with someone?  Shoot them.  Problem solved.  *facepalm*

Thankfully this movie is rated R.  Not that a rating will stop any impressionable kids from seeing it anyway.

In theaters May 11, 2012.

Thoughts?

This is sure to piss off the fudds at the range:

The old guys at my range absolutely shit a brick when I use my human silhouette targets, one of them even told me it was illegal (no lie LOL).  Can you imagine shooting  life like zombie with woman hostage targets that spray blood when you hit them around guys like that?  Their world would implode.

I really have to desire to see my targets bleed, but if I did I would definitely come up with a more cost effective way to do it.

$3 a pack gives you 1-5 shots depending on shot placement.  Likely if you hit it at the bottom of the pack it will all drain out.

I get dirty enough at the range just shooting prone, handling brass, sweating etc… I wouldn’t want to add fake blood into the mix.  That might make the remainder of my evening interesting if I ever got pulled over on the way home for a burnt out tail light or something. :P

Thoughts?
