Art Vs. Aliens.
I don’t want to start this week’s coolsh*t by sounding like a tinfoil hat-wearing crackpot, but aliens are real and they’re living in Utah. Utah, famously, is also the motherland of Mormons, who are also pretty frightening – but that’s a conversation for another time. Although I did always think ‘Mormon’ sounded like a type of alien, so maybe there’s something there. But anyway – last week, officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety were counting sheep in the desert, and in between the involuntary naps that come with that particular occupation, they happened upon a 3-metre tall, mysterious metal monolith. And now the world is very confused. There are just so many questions. Who built it? Why is it there? Why were they counting sheep? Naturally, the internet has gone wild and pinned this directly on some other-worldly beings. Sadly, though, all signs are pointing to this being a human-made structure, with many attributing it to the late, New Mexico-based minimalist artist John McCracken. Which sounds convincing – but that’s just what they want you to think, man! Wise up folks, or they’ll be counting sheeple in the desert next.Read Original Story
