More doll faces:
SPANISH fresco news. There’s a penis on the the Baroque dome of the Cathedral of Valencia. The work of Italian masters of Paolo San Leocadio and Francesco Pagano, commissioned by Pope Alexander VI, features a naked knob in the graffiti style.
It is a worthy penis. Experts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia say it was drawn by workers installing the baroque dome in the seventeenth century.
THE Asos Blouse with Contrast Piping is sure to be the next thing. The perfect outfit for sex club workers, adolescent males and Monica Lewinsky. Fais-moi une pipe, as they say in the ateliers of Paris…
SEXUAL abuse is big news. But what if you only thought it happned? What if you’ve made mistake, your memory is not true? At the University of Kent’s Medway’s Coopers bar, the show offers students the chance to “watch your new friends transformed into aliens and superheroes. One to remember!”
And, possibly never to forget.
Hypnotist Colin Adamson spliced up his show by encouraging the hypnotised to engage in sexual acts: lap dances, leering and imagining others naked. (You need to be entranced to leer at women?)
Adamson instructed two women to do a lap dance. He, reportedly, pointed at an innocent audience member and told them:
“When you wake up, you will think he touched you up just now.”
One of the victims was to shocked to speak. The other vowed to “castrate the audience member with a spoon”.
POP greats are being killed by Piracy. So say Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco. The duo used the artists’ CDs to create a dead body of work. But if piracy, such as file sharing, kills creativity, why is there so much creativity? Piracy doesn’t seem to killing the content industries. Sure, copying stuff must have an effect on total sale. But any links has not been proven. Would you have bought that song a feind copied for you? And now you’ve got it for free, might you like the singer and so buy their merchandise and tickets to see them in concert?
Still, these images of the rich and successful (and you’d have paid to see any of them play live) are nicely done:

THE Nuart festival of street and urban art, Stavanger, Norway. Photos for 2012:
But what happens when you’re the two men barred from an all-you-can-eat Mongolian restaurant in Brighton because you snaffle away appalling amounts of food and you end up going to the press about it?
BUT is it rain? Visitors explore Rain Room by artists Random International, a 100 square metre field of falling water which parts as visitors walk underneath, at the Barbican, in central London. You might have a similar effect in your urban high rise, a puddle, perhaps, in the ground floor car park where water has leaked thought the cracks in the cement…
AFTER Ikea Saudi Arabia banned women, I(KEA) got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one! got to erasing women from other walks of life, replacing the hidden sex with objects from the shop’s catalogue. Here are some of the best:
iPHONE fans can now have sex with their phones. It’s Lovepalz. It’s aluminium-insulated sex:
TRULY disgusting food of the day is the Kit Kat Pops, as sold by Pizza Hut in the Middle East. For the taste bud negligible, you can have added cheese. One day they will stuff the thing with vomit and cut out the middle man:

BECAUSE we are reviewing Jimmy Savile’s life’s work in light of allegations of him attacking young girls, we cast an eye over the introduction he wrote for Irene Keller’s book Benjamin Rabbit and the Stranger Danger - What a child needs to know about strangers.
It’s the familiar faces you need to worry about…
VIDEO of the day: the unboxing of a Hornby BR Blue Class 50 Diesel Locomotive. Number 50013 is called “Agincourt”. Behold! The true anorak at play:
BAD Ad Watch: Adam And Eve Hair Replacement Centre, Scarsdale, New York. He has a secret. Want to know what it is? Yep, he has hired her…
THERE are no women in the pages of the Ikea catalogue distributed in the less sandy parts of Saudi Arabia. The women posing on the furniture and helping the model kids in the bedrooms are all gone. So too is one of the company’s designers. Women. You lucky so-and-sos. One entire gender is now rid of the horrors of Ikea, leaving men to put the children to bed, wipe the toilet seat and shop of modular furniture solutions. “Women banned from Ikea!” Words to make any man gnash and wail. It’s off to the hellhole for dad and this little shopperoonies. Women win. You can keep your vote, your right to drive and your mask-free faces. So long as women are banned from Ikea, it’s a deal…
DAVID A. Reeves is making the silhouette hip:
SPARTACUS Chetwynd, who is shortlisted for the 2012 Turner prize, at Tate Britain in London. Until 2006, Spartacus was Alalia Chetwynd. She’s the first performance artist to make the Turner Prize shortlist. She’s the but-is-it-art role. There are lots of papier-mâché props and prancing in her small plays. If you ask nicely, she’ll most likely let some oligarch hang her on the wall:
