Banksy may be banned from Oscars


Banksys Doku „Exit through the Gift Shop“ ist bekanntlich für den Oscar nominiert und weil der Mann bekanntlich nur maskiert auftritt und das nur sehr, sehr selten, wird er wahrscheinlich von der Verleihung ausgeschlossen. Dear Academy, here’s your banana. Von der HufPo:

Street artist Banksy doesn’t show his face in public — and as a result, the Oscars may kick him to the curb. […]

Academy executive director Bruce Davis talked about the issue to The Wrap. “If that film wins and five guys in monkey masks come to the stage all saying, ‘I’m Banksy!’ Who the hell do we give it to?” he asked rhetorically. Because of those worries, the artist will most likely not be allowed on stage.

“We suggested to them that it might be a good idea that if he did win, one of them would accept in his place – that it would not be dignified for the Academy to have somebody come up wearing a monkey’s head,” Davis said, referring to conversations with the Jaimie D’Cruz, the film’s producer.

    Mein Gott, was ein prüder Schwachsinn. Da hat man als Show mal die Möglichkeit, jüngere Zielgruppen und Medienecho zu erreichen (falls der Fall überhaupt zustande kommt) und dann schlägt man genau in die entgegen gesetzte Kerbe… Hoffentlich taggt Banksy jetzt die Oscar-Halle!

    Ich hoffe dieses Copyright Problem mit Herr Levy klärt sich auf. Banksy ist einer der besten Künstler der letzten Jahre
    und den Oskar hätte er verdient.

    ich könnt mir vorstellen das Thierry Guetta ihn abholt :D

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
