Thanks to Derya Ataker for piecing together that Bob Dylan’s 2020 painting Pop’s Beer Shack is based on a shot from the 1945 Otto Preminger film noir Fallen Angel.


How much public space we've surrendered to cars (Swedish artist Karl Jilg)

I can't believe I even have to say this, but please do not grant the San Francisco police department the power to kill people using armed robots:

Don't watch if you need to have everything explained.
