Supertouch's own RON ENGLISH is currently running loose in south TEXAS where the sight of a pasture full of nice, innocent cows just grazing away, rekindled his relentless urge to paint everything in sight. The result? A field full of ironically sloganed, camouflauged cows, and a death sentence from Peta, whose bounty hunters are reportedly stalking the Jersey-based painter as we write...

NEWS///SURVIVOR TRAPPED FOR A MONTH PULLED FROM RUBBLE IN HAITI ALIVE

February 9, 2010  |  Haiti, News, WTF???  |  Comments Off

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) — A man pulled alive from the rubble of a building in Haiti's capital Monday may have been trapped since the January 12 quake that leveled much of the city, doctors reported.

The 28-year-old man, identified as Evan Muncie, was found in the wreckage of a market where he sold rice, his family told staff at a University of Miami field hospital. He suffered from extreme dehydration and malnutrition, but did not appear to have significant crushing injuries, the doctors said.

"He was emaciated. He hadn't had anything in quite some time. He had open wounds that were festering on both of his feet," said Dr. Mike Connelly, of the university's Project Medishare. The people who brought him to the hospital said they found the man while digging out the marketplace, Connelly said. Click HERE to continue reading...

AFGHANISTAN///AUSTRALIAN VIDEO ARTIST SHAUN GLADWELL BECOMES A WAR ARTIST ON THE FRONT LINES

Shaun Gladwell gets a firsthand lesson in the art of war...

Australian experimental film director and Supertouch buddy SHAUN GLADWELL has just returned from a tour in Afghanistan as an official "War Artist" drawing inspiration for a new body of work from the action on the front lines. Of particular interest to Gladwell were the experiences of the individual fighters, whose emotional states informed his experience: “I wasn’t interested in photographing sensitive material, in terms of the technology or weapons," he informed THE ART NEWSPAPER. "My interest was really the experience of the soldier as a thinking and feeling subject. I’m interested in how bodies move through space and the capacity of bodies to perform in certain situations. Particularly how it relates to landscape. These are issues I’m always interested in. That informed the way I was dealing with that experience in Afghanistan. But I didn’t try and direct anything.”

SHAUN GLADWELL ON LIFE IN AFGHANISTAN
The Australian artist’s three-week sojourn with troops will form basis of new work

By Elizabeth Fortescue | The Art Newspaper

SYDNEY. Shaun Gladwell, the Australian multimedia artist who represented his country at the 2009 Venice Biennale, and who has just returned from being an official war artist in Afghan istan, told The Art Newspaper that his experiences were “inspirational” and will inform his next body of work.

Gladwell was speaking on his return from Oruzgan province, where he lived and worked for three weeks alongside Aus tralian soldiers in October 2009. He says he will spend the next six months in his Sydney studio, working to “digest” his experiences while in the field. “I’m cherishing [the trip], and starting to analyse what’s taken place at this particular time,” he said.

Before settling back into his studio to work with the raw photo graphs and moving images he shot in Afghanistan, Gladwell returned to Venice to pack up his Biennale work—a video series titled MADDESTMAXIMVS—Planet & Stars Sequence, 2009, set partly in the Australian outback. Gladwell said it had been a long-held ambition to undertake a tour of duty with Australian fighting forces, stemming from the stories his father had told him about being a soldier in the Vietnam War.

Apparently smoothing out the crow's feet is not an option...

Wasting no time following BARACK OBAMA's inauguration, purveyors of ultra-creepy celebrity likenesses MADAME TUSSAUDS got down to the business of immortalizing the first couple in the time-honored and forever freaky medium of wax. Barack's already made his debut at the institution's Washington D.C. branch to the horror of several infants attending the unveiling, while first lady MICHELLE is still being sculpted in London's Merlin Studios in preparation for her March debut. Unfortunately, she won't be joining her man in his Oval Office setting; instead she'll be placed in line with the museum's other first ladies, right next to now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...

Possibly the only person in the entire world not trying to meet Barack, even a wax one...

Survivor photo from the scene...

In case you've been living under a rock today, a US AIRWAYS plane crashed into the Hudson River in NYC today after a bird flew into the engine. Luckily, everyone survived after what's been described as a "masterful landing" in the frigid waters. Of course, they managed to pull the surviving "dude" out of the crowd for the commentary:
