We all saw the Jay-Z and Kanye West video for Otis. We all thought to our ourselves, oh no, seriously? The Maybach? Don’t do it!!!
Thankfully rap isn’t all just bling bling– they’re auctioning off The Otis Maybach for charity, this Thursday, March 8th in New York City. The lot is being sold partly to benefit Save the Children by Phillips Depury.
Estimates are $100,000-$150,000 and I imagine it will do just fine. Who wouldn’t want a ’04 Maybach destroyed by Jigga himself? I’m going to go ahead and put this into the Art category.

Pictures from 82-year-old Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama new exhibit at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia called ‘Obliteration Room.’
Start with a stark-white room then let kids armed with thousands of colored stickers go crazy on it. The result is a rainbow of insanity.
More pictures over at The Denver Egotist, thanks Keleigh!

Head over to designboom for a great story and photo essay about the human billboard paintings at the North Korean Mass Games.
Believe it or not, I actually had flights to North Korea to see the Mass Games this past September– but the whole trip was cancelled for ‘unknown’ reasons. I’m looking forward to trying again for my night in Pyongyang next year. It looks a-mazing.
