I recently came across this video on Chinese artist Liu Bolin. Liu is known as "The Invisible Man" due to the artworks he creates, where he questions ideas of (artistic) identity, and the relationship people have with their physical surroundings, by painting himself into different settings.
This Week in Horror: ‘The Invisible Man Returns,’ ‘Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III,’ ‘Son of Frankenstein,’ ‘Demon Knight’

Man, January 12 and 13 are pretty amazing days in the history of horror movies. Universal Pictures released The Invisible Man Returns, a sequel one of their most classic horror titles, which boasted never-before -seen visual effects for which John P. Fulton received an Oscar nomination. Vincent Price plays the Invisible Man in his debut horror role. Universal also released Son of Frankenstein , the sequel to Bride of Frankenstein, starring Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Basil Rathbone. Son of Frankenstein was hugely successful for Universal and re-invigorated the careers of the actors and crew involved with the production. It’s also the film where Frankenstein first dons that stylish fur vest. In terms of more modern horror, this weekend saw the release of Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, which you can read all about here . It’s a personal favorite of FEARnet writer Rob Galluzzo. I particularly like the fact that, in the trailer, a chainsaw is thrown to Leatherface by a lady in a lake and struck by lightning as he holds it aloft, as if he’s holding the chainsaw equivalent of Excalibur. Amazing. Last but certainly not least, the Crypt Keeper made his feature-length debut on January 13, 1995 in Demon Knight. I can’t tell you how much I love the Crypt Keeper. Hands down, he has the best puns around. I like to think of him as horror’s answer to Fran Drescher. Watch clips from all of the films: Title: The Invisible Man Retu

The Simple Analytics of Invisible Bond Vigilantes (Wonkish) (1025201)
via the Internet.
From the Debtor’s Jungle:
We are the Invisible Army of Defaulters. We are your neighbors. We are your family, your friends. We are millions. We are everywhere. We are going to bring the system to its knees. We can, because we wield the one power that all the armies of the world can never defeat: The power of refusal. This power has destroyed the mightest empires. The same fate awaits the current system of mafia capitalism in America, an economic system driven by Wall Street CEOs who produce nothing, contribute nothing, who have bought our government and reduced it into a criminal enterprise whose main purpose is to support loan-sharking, gambling, extortion, and the slow reduction of American citizens into debt peons. Every dollar we take from a subprime mortgage speculator, every dollar we save from a collection agency is a tiny piece of our own lives and freedom that we can give back to our communities. To be able to take care of our children, our friends, our families is a value that no accountant can ever measure, that no government, loan administrator, or hedge fund manager can ever have the right to take away from us. We are an army of lovers who cannot be defeated. We are laying the groundwork for another world. Strike debt.
Resist. Insist. Stand together. Build. Never give up. #S17.
Marcia G. Yerman: The Invisible War — Documentary Spotlighting Rape in the Military Aims to Create National Awareness

"If this is happening to me, I can't be the only one." That epiphany is shared in the new documentary, The Invisible War , which takes an in-depth look at the impunity with which rape in the military is handled. Directed by Kirby Dick , it was recently featured at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival , where it garnered the Nestor Almendros Award for courage in filmmaking. The Invisible War interweaves devastating statistics with the personal stories of a group of women and one man. Their lives have been forever altered by "soul-shattering" violations from those they had believed to be a trusted family — the military. The subjects relate their narratives while sharing their original feelings of pride and accomplishment in performing their jobs and being part of a community. That idealism dissipated as the structures put in place to create unity and cohesion turned against them when they sought justice for the brutalities committed. More than 20 percent of female veterans have been sexually assaulted while serving; 80 percent of survivors do not report the incident. Claims are not treated seriously and the credibility of the victim is continually called into question. Rape cases are usually handled by men, as women are considered "too sympathetic" for the task. It doesn't help that the system for accountability is riddled with commanders preferring to sweep incidents "under the rug." This is borne out by the data that "33 percent

All of the experts are sounding off on the massive Spanish bank bailout announcement . Art Cashin , UBS Financial Services director of floor operations, notes that traders are still haunted by the AIG surprise in the wake of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy. Cashin thinks that we should be weary of one aspect of the Lehman/AIG experience. From this morning's Cashin's Comments : Spanish Banks And The “AIG Syndrome” – Around Wall Street watering holes, there’s a thesis passed around almost nightly. It contends that when world leaders were shocked and stunned by the extensive and virtually instantaneous collateral damaged caused by the Lehman failure, they automatically resolved to prevent anything like it from recurring. Folklore says that as AIG’s global exposure began to be revealed, the phones at the Fed and at the Treasury began ringing off the hook. The calls were thought to come from Frankfurt, London, Paris, Milan and virtually every financial center on the planet. The calls purportedly (via rumors) had a similar tone – “if you think Lehman was bad, a failure here could be Lehman on steroids”. Swamped with such calls, a rescue effort was quickly cobbled together. Most Americans assume that the Spanish banking crisis is due to a lot of local banks loaded down with national debt and some regional real estate exposure. Not widely discussed is that Spanish banks have been leveraging real estate for over a decade. They compoun
