2. "The Central Intelligence Agency used American modern art - including the works of such artists as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko - as a weapon in the Cold War. In the manner of a Renaissance prince - except that it acted secretly - the CIA fostered and promoted American Abstract Expressionist painting around the world for more than 20 years." Via. (Did the Soviets did the same thing with ballet?)

3. I've never seen anything interesting in the Spider-Man: Turn of the Dark Twitter feed until Saturday, when it's full of replies to people asking for refunds. (I hope it all works out, I can't wait to see the designs.)
