A 45kg bust of whistleblower Edward Snowden fused to a US Revolution war memorial in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn.

Installed on Monday morning by an anonymous trio of artists, the bust was subsequently covered by a tarp and removed by the NY Parks Department.

The perpetrators have a mould and plan to release further Snowdens.

A tribute to the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman by writer/director/editor Caleb Slain featuring clips from every film the actor has done. Slain sez:

Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I’ve ever faced as an editor, and yet indescribably rewarding. I can assure you that after 22 years on screen and nearly fifty films, we now look at the work of an actor who never had a single dishonest moment on camera. I know because I’ve seen them all. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our greatest.

The title still was created using 205 head shots from 47 of Hoffman’s films


OTBGer Gilroy paid tribute to the Off The Ball crew, including Eoin McDevitt, pictured interviewing Ireland’s soccer manager Giovanni Trapattoni above, after their resignation from the Newstalk show this afternoon. Just after the show started at 7pm, he said:

 “All right, a very good evening to you.You’re welcome to tonight’s Off The Ball. First things first. We didn’t really expect to be here tonight but we are. That’s because the lads made a pitch to start the show every night at 6pm. Station management couldn’t accommodate that and the lads have decided to resign.
“All I really want to say about this now is that we’re going to miss our friends: Ken, Eoin, Mark, Simon and Murph are an amazing group of people to work with. They’ve helped change how sport is talked about in Ireland forever. They make great radio and they help make radio great. We’re all going to miss them and we wish them the very best of luck in the future.”
