'Marumo' balls washed up on a Sydney Beach. The balls are thought to be an extremely rare species of filamentous green algae. The living organisms are known in Japan as 'Marumo' and Cladophora ball or Lake ball in English, and are sometimes found in freshwater lakes in the Northern Hemisphere. ‘Aegagropilious’ describes the habit of free living algae (algae not attached to rocks) forming into balls. Floating algae balls are thought to be brought ashore by warmer weather and the rough wave conditions.

Today’s horrific video of football player Ray Rice knocking his girlfriend out cold and dragging her body out of an elevator in Atlantic City last May should appall everyone. The news coincides with the emergence of the #MaddenGiferator meme, which has been attempting to hijack EA’s marketing tool for one of their recent video games. Earlier today, Ezekiel Kweku over at The Toast offered her arty take on the GIF tool by overlaying Jenny Holzer’s famous Truisms series on images of the heroic-seeming football players. The impact is erie as it highlights some of the messages of American culture that float under the surface of manufactured sports and videogame media images.

This is from Philippa Rice’s comic ‘Soppy’. It upsets me to see so many notes and no credit to the artist.

Her tumblr is http://cardboardlife.tumblr.com

If you see a piece of work without credit take a minute to find the creator, try a reverse google image search, it can make a huge difference.
