If you happen to be one of the unfortunate individuals who have not heard of Banksy or seen his art then I really feel sorry for you. Banksy is a graffiti artist who hails from the UK. His stencils have appeared throughout the world, and he uses them to promote alternative aspects of politics from those portrayed in the mainstream media. Another Banksy staple involves hanging a piece of his own artwork in such swanky establishments as the Tate Modern, the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the American Museum of Natural History. I highly recommend you check him out.

The Adventures of Pete & Pete was an amazingly quirky show that at times was just downright bizarre. The show started out as a series of one-minute shorts that aired during commercial breaks on Nickelodeon between 1990-1993, but then it took a new form as a full length television show that captured the imaginations of many children. Awesome show, if you've never seen it check it out. I highly recommend.
It seemed to me like everyone hip to the world wide web now had their own blog. I figured that with so many out there I might as well jump on the bandwagon and make one of my own. There are some good ones out there, http://gorillavsbear.blogspot.com/, http://postsecret.blogspot.com/, http://vincentwashier.blogspot.com/, just to name a few, and some terrible ones that are just god awful http://jupiland.blogspot.com/ (Beware: not for the faint of heart. This is just such a bad bad thing. I would rather watch grass grow. Honestly don't click if you have a weak stomach) I promise this one won't be as bad as some of the ones that are out there. I'm sure it won't appeal to everyone and I can only offer this for advice, if you don't like it, then don't read it.
