Russian band Leningrad have released a music video for their new song, "Tattoo Artist" which plays out backwards but makes perfect sense when reversed.
The video was made to be played both ways and no amount of absurdity is sacrificed either way. In the chronological version, the context becomes clearer and the actions that started off the original events find meaning. read more
"He Will Not Divide Us," Shia LaBeouf's Museum of the Moving Image art installation, was shut down after becoming a "flashpoint for violence," a museum spokesperson confirmed to the Daily News. "The installation created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the museum, its visitors, staff, local residents, and businesses," a statement from the museum read. "Over the course of the installation, there have been dozens of threats of violence and numerous arrests, such that police felt compelled to be stationed outside the installation 24 hours a day, seven days a week," the statement continued.
A judge has overturned a verdict which awarded almost million dollars to a couple after a sperm bank breached a contract and gave the man's sperm to his (now) ex-girlfriend.

The judge said the couple should not receive mental anguish damages because "it was a wrongful pregnancy case". read more
The actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested Wednesday for misdemeanor assault after allegedly assaulting an neo-Nazi during his livestream protest He Will Not Divide Us. LaBeouf has been protesting Donald Trump's inauguration outside the New York Museum of the Moving Image, where he's inviting passersby to say "he will not divide us" into a live camera he plans to continue for the next four years. A white supremacist gave a rallying call to other racists into the webcam earlier this week, and LaBeouf chased off the man during a tense confrontation. Video showed a man embracing LaBeouf for a selfie before saying, "Hitler did nothing wrong." The actor shoved him and stepped away from him. read more
