Just the good stuff.....and a lot of this is pants...pissingly....good.
And they set up shop recently in new fake mexico, so newer stuff should be coming up.

Before all this I was unsure about Shi-at's mental condition. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt but he's removed all doubt. That guy is nuttier than a fruitcake.
Shia LaBeouf’s ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ Is Temporarily Shut Down—Again
The project is proving to be more controversial than expected
For about 24 hours, it almost looked like Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner—the trio responsible for the controversial “participatory performance artwork” He Will Not Divide Us, had accepted that their project might just be a “flashpoint for violence” after all. After LaBeouf tweeted that gunshots were fired nearby the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the group took down the project on Thursday morning. But as of early Friday, the livestream was back on.
The project is a protest against the divisive presidency of Donald Trump; it invites passersby to say the phrase “He will not divide us” into a camera intended to stream online seven days a week, 24 hours a day for the duration of the 45th president’s term. However, there have been no tweets on the decision to resume the project, but it seems the artists are truly intent on making the durational work last. The El Rey Theater did not respond to artnet News’ requests for comment. According to KRQE News 13, three gunshots could be heard on the livestream early on Thursday. A man who was reciting a poem into the camera when the shots were fired then says, “Somebody just got shot a block away.” The local news station quoted an onlooker, Chris Paul, saying, “Bad things happen but I don’t think it’s because of the art, I think it’s just because of the neighborhood.”
He Will Not Divide Us was first installed outside the Museum of the Moving Image in New York on inauguration day. It quickly became a target of white supremacist trolls; one man said on camera, “Hitler did nothing wrong,” sparking an altercation that led to LaBeouf’s arrest. The institution took down the livestream after 21 days, citing public safety concerns, and explaining in a statement that it had prompted “dozens” of violent threats, as well as “numerous arrests.”
According to this youtube user here is what exactly happened:

It was some funny shit, Hoteps. So, Shia decides, "I'm gonna move this out to some hood in New Mexico. That'll keep those pesky Trump supporters away! We'll also get to showcase our wonderful hispanic immigrants." Had thugs showing up there and shit, first day. We (4chan) trolled some gangsta nogs with gold grills to give a shoutout to "1488 Records" on stream. Lulzy. Anyways, shit lasted for 5 days and finally, at night and just up the block, MS-13 rolls up on someone and starts unloading on them. POP POP POP POP POP!!! They cleared the area out and shut it down. The beauty of all of this is that it only proved Trump was right about illegal aliens and hispanic gang violence and making America safe again.
Shia LaBeouf’s new movie made just $8 in the UK

“Man Down,” a war thriller with Shia LaDouche, grossed just £7 ($8.70) when it premiered in a single U.K. theater over the weekend, according to ComScore. That’s the equivalent of selling a single ticket, given that the U.K. Cinema Association puts the average movie admission cost in the country at £7.21.
“Poor Shia,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “That opening could be in the Guinness World Records or something.”
The film played in one location, Reel Cinema in Burnley. It was simultaneously released digitally on demand, making the theatrical release something of an afterthought. It launches on DVD and Blu-ray next month, according to the Guardian.
After scoring in big studio blockbusters such as “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” LaBeouf has focused on more indie projects with mixed success. He earned strong reviews for last year’s “American Honey,” but other work, such as “The Company You Keep” and “Charlie Countryman” have barely registered with critics or audiences. Instead, the media has focused on LaBeouf’s off-screen behavior, such several alcohol-related arrests (he got sober), and performance art that recently saw the actor participate in an art installation protesting Donald Trump’s presidency.
“Man Down” reunited LaBeouf with Dito Montiel. The two previously worked together on 2006’s “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.” The film screened at the Venice and Toronto film festivals to negative reviews. It did better in the United States than it did across the pond, grossing $454,490.
Other stars in indie projects have seen similarly dismal results. Emma Watson got a wave of negative publicity last summer when her direct-to-video film “The Colony” only opened to £47 in the U.K., while Richard Gere’s “The Benefactor” kicked off to a dismal £25 in spring of 2016.
All the attention about the small grosses may have a side benefit. It could raise attention for the low-profile project.
“There could be a silver lining to those seven pounds,” said Dergarabedian.
Shia LaBeouf loses it on ‘racist’ bartender

Shia LaDouche flipped out at a restaurant in Los Angeles on Wednesday, screaming that a bartender was a “f—king racist.”
LaBeouf, 30, was at Jerry’s Deli in Studio City where he had been drinking beer for three hours before the incident, TMZ reports.
At that point, the “Transformers” star grew belligerent and was asked to leave by the restaurant’s staff. On his way out, he screamed at a bartender, “You f—king racist! F—k you!”
A video obtained by TMZ shows LaBeouf being escorted out of the establishment, then scurrying away with the person recording him asking, “Why you run up on my man like that?”
In a second video, LaBeouf can be seen berating the bartender over an order of French fries.
At first it was reported that the incident happened at the Pinz Bowling Center, which is located in the same complex, but a source confirmed to Page Six that it actually occurred at Jerry’s Deli.
LaBeouf has previously run into trouble with both alcohol and his temper.
In January 2014, LaBeouf reportedly head-butted another man in a drunken brawl. In June of that year, he tried to fight a man before having a meltdown at a production of “Cabaret.” One month later, he went to rehab for alcoholism. Then in October 2015, he was arrested for public intoxication.
Earlier this year, LaBeouf was arrested for assault after a scuffle at his “He Will Not Divide Us” installation, though the charges were later dropped.
Last fall, the actor told Variety, “I got a Napoleonic complex. I start drinking and I feel smaller than I am, and I get louder than I should. It’s just not for me, dude.”
A rep for LaBeouf didn’t respond to a request for comment.
