Google Street ART View

Ohh Mickey...

Just a few days after Banksy graced the seedy streets of Los Angeles with his whimsical and cheeky (oh Mickey!) creations, The Academy declined his request to wear a mask at the Oscars.  Facepalm.  Smooth move, Captain Stodgy.  You had a golden opportunity to lure Banksy out of his coveted anonymity cave and you blew it.  Unsurprisingly, Banksy said, “uh ok then.  Not coming,” and spray painted all the cars in the parking lot.  I hope so, anyway.

Read the ever-charming Brits’ take on the whole stink at The Guardian.

In related, less stodgy news: Red Bull is debuting “Street Art View” for Google Earth.  Now we can see just how far Banksy, his predecessors, and his copycats have gone.  Take notes, Academy.  This is awesome.  Go give it a whirl at www.streetartview.com!
