Open Post: Hosted By The $11.7 Million Pure Gold Cube Sitting In Central Park With Its Own Security
On Wednesday morning, a 410-pound pure 24-karat gold cube was dropped in the middle of Central Park. My first thought was, obviously, rich bitch aliens. But it turns out the cube is an art piece by German artiste Niclas Castello. And while the artwork is not for sale, it’s valued at about $11.7 million and came with its own security team that was stationed nearby. So don’t even think about pissing on it. Or writing, “PIGEON LADY WUZ HERE.”
Armie Hammer’s Cannibal DMs Will Have A Longer Career Than He Will, Thanks To The Magic Of NFTs
The last time we squirmed and clutched our abs while hate-reading the most recent, loin-searing adventures of the abusive, bone-sucking creep show that is Armie Hammer, he was losing more acting jobs than Lindsay Lohan during her “steal sparkly shit and slap a bitch” phases. That’s a tough act to follow, but those two pillars of polite society also have something else in common, and no, it’s not an STD (that we know of, but the day is young). Both Armie and LiLo have been in recent headlines for their connections to NFTs, or non-fungible tokens.
NFTs are in the news a lot lately, and while some of us just get jaded visions of money laundering when the subject comes up, others like artist Julia Morrison seize the day and claim to try to steer the technology into something nobler and cause-oriented and to explore its function as an authentication tool, and not just a quick way to separate a fool and their money (that comes later).
