Back in June it was all going off in Amsterdam, and this weekend it was a naked rendezvous with a glacier in Switzerland for famous photographer Spencer Tunick.

Otherwise known as ‘The Naked Photographer’. (He’s not really known as that, but I’m coining the term regardless, such is the power of The Crazy News)

About 600 volunteer nudes braved the Aletsch glacier in the Valais region in southern Switzerland in a photo shoot aimed at drawing attention to the effects of global warming on the world’s glaciers.

Tunick said his photographs were both works of art and political statements.

“I will try to treat the body on two levels. On an abstract level, as if they were flowers or stones.

“I want my images to go more than skin-deep. I want the viewers to feel the vulnerability of their existence and how it relates closely to the sensitivity of the world’s glaciers,” New York native Tunick told media.

Glacier Surfing!

But not everyone is unhappy with the melting of the world’s glaciers.

Totally gnarly thrill seekers are taking advantage of the massive waves created by chunks of glacier falling into the ocean.

Surfers Garrett McNamara and Kealii Mamala posted this epic video on youtube after waiting for several hours at the Child’s Glacier, in south-central Alaska, for a slice of the glacier to give way, with totally awesome consequences.

They even have their own web site GlacierSurfing.com, and they say the phenomenon was first discovered by a photographer in 1995 when filming for IMAX movie

Surfs Up!

Global Warming is totally awesome, man!

It’s a fake!: ‘Van Gogh’ Painting connected to Rupert Murdoch proven near worthless.

Ouch!

gogh_wideweb__470x2912.jpg  How embarrasing!

Like something out of a classic Hollywood thriller…

A self portait painting supposedly created in 1886 by legendary artist Vincent van Gogh, purported to be worth Australian $25 million (US $21.5 million), has been proven to be a fake.

The painting called ‘Head of a man’ was bought to Australia by the father of media billionare Rupert Murdoch, Sir Keith Murdoch, and has been with the National Gallery of Victoria collection since just before World War 2.

But when the painting went on a tour to Europe, experts in Amsterdam tested the painting regarded as “offbeat” and an “oddity”, by Van Gogh specialists.

Last year The Sunday Times in London published claims by Van Gogh specialists that the work had been incorrectly attributed.

And today, it was announced that those claims have proven accurate.

The gallery said there would be a “downwards adjustment” in the painting’s value when the Victorian state gallery revalues its collection next year.
 

Downward adjustment indeed!

Not so stary, stary anymore…..

Wii! Gym fixes workout boredom with uber-coolness.

A Canadian health club is attracting huge interest after opening up a workout station dedicated to the world-wide exercise-gaming phenomenon, the Nintendo Wii.

Trendy Studeo 55 in Vancouver has incorporated the system in its workout circuit and users can punch, run and jump with the system’s movement-sensitive controller

“It’s pleasing to see people play video games who would have never played video games before.” Farjad Iravani, marketing manager for Nintendo Canada, told media.

He estimates that one session of Wii boxing, tennis or bowling equates to going for a brisk walk and can burn between 75 to 125 calories.

Since the Wii was released late last year, various studies have highlighted its ability to improve fitness and even lead to weight loss by getting armchair athletes moving.

A study conducted by researchers at the Liverpool John Moores University in England found that regular use of the console could burn up to 1,830 calories a per week — the equivalent to almost four Big Macs.

Nintendo is also currently developing Wii Fit, a 2008 video game with an array of activities, from yoga to aerobics.

Could Nintendo have come up with a much needed solution to the obesity epidemic sweeping the western world?

Only time will tell.

Wiiiiii……!

Haahahahahahahahahha!

The Crazy News: Shot of the Week

Yeah baby, she’s got it!

mfb-7183336-nackte-2-quertemplateidrenderscaledpropertybildwidth380.jpg

Well, well, well…What’s all this then?

German media are reporting on some very unusual activity occurring in the German town of Doemitz.

A 30-something naked blonde woman, as pictured above, was snapped on a digital camera by a stunned local as she left a petrol station convenience store wearing nothing but golden stilettos and a bracelet.

Nothing else….

And as you can see, she appears to be tattooed. Do tattoos count as clothing?

NO!

Or is she wearing some kind of body paint/body stocking? Either way, she’s looking mighty hot, on what was a mighty hot day in continental Europe.

The mystery blonde bought 6 packets of cigarettes from petrol station employee Ines Swoboda late on the sweltering Sunday afternoon and then returned to a waiting Ferrari F430, before zooming off.

“I wasn’t surprised because she’s come in naked before — she’s a very nice woman,” Swoboda said, adding none of the other customers were bothered.

Although some of the males in the store at the time were seen mysteriously despairing into the toilets afterwards, must have drunk too much beer on Saturday night…

Whatever the case, this naked blonde sure likes showing off her skin and those lovely tattoos, or whatever that is (help me out here).

Whatever the facts, it sure does look like she might have gained a hell of a lot more attention than she bargained for.

The Crazy News will keep you updated on any further naked developments…

Hot in Europe! Literally…

Meanwhile in Serbia, three tourists were arrested for cycling in the nude in a bid to beat the sweltering and deadly heat wave sweeping parts of the European continent.

Surprise, surprise one of the three nudes was a German, the other two Austrian.

All three men were fined 250 Euros each for disrupting public peace.

They must have thought the World Naked Bike Ride was on. One month too late fellas.
