Where’s Wallace: The Wire Version of Where’s Waldo?

Love this so much! Where’s Wallace is essentially a page from a Where’s Waldo (Where’s Wally for everyone not in North America) book filled with all the characters from The Wire. The concept was created for The Ringer by Shea Serrano with illustrations by Brenna Thummler.

5 Questions You Must Answer (or die)

If you missed them, the previous 5 Questions posts are HEREHERE and HERE. For this weeks questions I went through and picked some interesting ones from AskReddit (slightly altered a couple)! Excited to hear your answers and feel free to leave comments on other people’s answers! I’ll put my answers there too.

 

The Questions

1 – What do you wish had never been invented?

2 – You now do the opposite of your job. What do you do now?

3 – What’s the scariest movie, short film, or TV show you’ve seen?

4 – Describe an encounter you’ve had with a famous person.

5 – You rub a can of cheap beer and a small, pudgy spirit in a stained undershirt emerges. He is the Crappy Genie, and he’ll grant you any wish as long as it’s kind of crappy and won’t substantially change the course of your life. What do you wish for?

Almost immediately after artist David Choe completed his giant mural on New York City’s famed Bowery wall (located at the corner of Houston Street and Bowery), the artwork was defaced.

Last week Hyperallergic wrote about the Bowery mural and its part in the normalisation of rape culture.
