Mark Gubin is an artist and photographer in Milwaukee. He is also a God among pranksters. Decades ago he realized that his art studio was along the flight path to the local airport. He had the brilliantly funny idea to paint “Welcome To Cleveland” on the roof of his studio in giant letters.

The result has been planeloads of freaked out travelers thinking they had boarded the wrong plane or seriously missed a connection.

We salute you Mark Gubin.

The Jeffrey Dahmer Files

What drives a seemingly mundane man to commit a series of acts so heinous that it captured the attention of a horrified nation? In the summer of 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to 957 years in prison for killing 17 people and dismembering their bodies. THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES is a film that explores this Midwestern city by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections from Milwaukee Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen, Police Detective Patrick Kennedy, and neighbor Pamela Bass are interwoven with archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmer’s life, working collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.
