Portlandia Spoofs Performance Art

Portlandia is one of my favorite TV shows. While other character based shows (enter Kroll Show) are based on over-trodden stereotypes and tired generalizations, Portlandia seems to give real insight into culture. Especially young and hip culture. I just can’t get enough really.

Blog Highlight: A Walk With My Camera

 

Street Artist JR would be proud of one of my favorite blogs- A Walk With My Camera.  Photography in it’s own right can be a narrative tool just as any other art is. Because photography is such a small window into the reality of a world, the person looking through the lens often finds themselves faced with the idea that the images they shoot may not accurately reflect the reality of what they shoot. They are our guide into this new world, into this small little window of time. A true photographer is an artist at portraying and understanding the truth in their photographs.

This blog, I believe, does just that.

HOAX: Banksy arrested in London on vandalism charges, identity revealed

Banksy arrested in London on vandalism charges, identity revealed [UPDATES] | Death and Taxes

Well that turned out to be interesting. After seeing my Facebook and Twitter blow up with people saying that the real Banksy had been unmasked as a Mr. Paul William Horner of Bristol, England, it appears the whole entire thing was a hoax.

The culprit? A website called PR Log – the story has since been removed. Jezebel wrote about it, Business Insider (??) covered it, twas all over Reddit  and the Daily Dot. 

So it seems as if this entire thing was made up. That or Bansky is such a genius that he pulled one over on us and actually did get arrested, his name is Paul Horner, and he planted the story of it being a hoax because he knew no one would believe the truth. Do you really want to know who Banksy is? I am pretty comfortable not knowing.
