White Evangelicals – go Naked in Virginia.

The United States was divided over the election of Donald Trump, yet 80% of white evangelicals voted for him.
Cyril Abad focused on a number of these evangelical congregations and their original approaches to religious worship.
This is a small Christian community who decided to live in the middle of a forest in Virginia, far from worldly concerns, and to live there naked.

A Tattoo Studio with Heart.

heartforart-tattoo-08Looking at Danny Birch’s avatar on Facebook, his clenched fist over his chest, it is a reminder of the passion in him and why he opened a tattoo studio by the name of Heart for Art.
A shop with red wallpaper and antique frames and clocks and French chairs.
It is a stylish and inspiring space for both him and his fellow artists, like Ash Higham, and Sam Barber who’s done an impressive tribute to dark fantasy film, “Pan’s Labyrinth,” as shown in the image above.

Solid gold crapper to be installed at Blenheim Palace.

A Solid Gold toilet is to be installed at Blenheim Palace Oxfordshire.

The 18-carat gold artwork, by Maurizio Cattelan, made headlines in the US after the Guggenheim offered it to Donald Trump instead of the Van Gogh painting he requested.
It will be plumbed into a bathroom at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, near the room in which Winston Churchill was born.
Visitors will be able to admire and use the toilet, an experience that will be new even to the Marlborough family who have enjoyed lives of luxury at Blenheim for more than 300 years.
“Despite being born with a silver spoon in my mouth I have never had a s.h.i.t on a golden toilet, so I look forward to it,” said Edward Spencer-Churchill, the current Duke of Marlborough’s half-brother and founder of the Blenheim Art Foundation.
“It will be an installed, working, usable toilet.”There will be enhanced security, Spencer-Churchill said, but whether there will be a queuing system or booked slots has yet to be decided.
And there is the question of how long people can stay in the toilet. “I’m not sure I can answer that question yet,” he added. “We’d like people to enjoy their time in there without giving them too much time, if that makes sense.”
