All the opinion pieces you've read about Tiger are wrong. (Unless you read one that agrees with me.) Why is Tiger losing sponsors and why all the fuss?
This may be brutally obvious, but bear with me: Tiger is driven by golf, to the point of obsession. Being the best… Read full post »
Ever since I read Malcolm Gladwell's magnum opus of pseudo-intellectualism, "The Tipping Point", I've hated him. Gladwell's essential method: a few colorful anecdotes + a few quirky experts + self-help homilies - anything that doesn't fit the argument = important and intelligent sociological musings.… Read full post »
Because I tell them to! Yes, people will do violence to each other at my whim. Oh, the power. It's all in the name of art, of course. And sadism. I have convinced 6 people to play a game (which is a "performance art" thing)--they won't know the rules in advance… Read full post »
I'm head back to Buenos Aires in less than a week, and I'm quite excited. I'll be there for another 3 months and I'm going to have a big solo show. Here's some pics from last time I was there.
A delivery truck, "My Dream"
Here are some pictures from my ongoing adventure in Buenos Aires. Hope you enjoy.
PS My drawings are in the art fair in Lithuania, ArtVilnius. You heard me: Litha-frickin-wania. The gallerist I work with here in BsAshere is in Vilnius now. Weird.
A view of the city from Puerto… Read full post »
If you, like me, think that Camille Paglia's columns on Salon are a total waste of bandwidth, I have a simple solution: don't read them. A high percentage of the comments on her columns say, in one way or another, that the writer wishes Paglia was not on Salon. Let's make… Read full post »
Let me begin by saying this: I cannot stand Sarah Palin. I think she is ignorant, unintelligent, incapable of using the English language, egotistical, irresponsible, hateful and horribly misguided on so many levels. All of her wounds have been almost entirely self-inflicted, no matter how much she bl… Read full post »
For the time being, I will take a break from regaling you with tales of my fabulous art career in Buenos Aires to show some photos. I have long been interested in signs, and I love taking pics of good or interesting ones. And there are a ton of good ones… Read full post »
I don't want Obama to have a 33% approval rating, but 66% (or whatever stupidly high number it is) makes me more than a bit uncomfortable. There are at least two problems with being this popular.
1) He wants to stay this popular. In order to do that, he will… Read full post »
Last night was the VIP opening of arteBA down here in Buenos Aires. There was some good art, there was lots of bad art, there were some pretty girls, I went home alone. There was no free food! Booo! There was free champagne, but I'm not much of a drinker. I… Read full post »
So the owner of the gallery I work with gave me an invitation to the VIP opening party for arteBA (the Buenos Aires art fair) tonight! And I don't have a date! Booo! I'm going to have to remedy that situation. I hope.
Anyway, the party should be very fancy… Read full post »
From an article about a yoga teacher in today's Fashion & Style section in the New York Times:
Then he cranked up “Misty Mountain Hop” by Led Zeppelin and led the students through a warm-up of sun salutations. Soon he had them stretching into a difficult split pose.
“Didn’… Read full post »
OK, so I had an art opening at a gallery called Appetite on Friday--I'll write more about this later and post some pics. Appetite is one of the coolest galleries in Buenos Aires and is a favorite of the New York Times (seriously!). You can check out their website at http://www.appetite.com.ar… Read full post »
Hey, remember that time I broke into your well-known house and took your TV? It was a simple error, really. I had heard from someone that there was a TV--which happened to be in your house, though they didn't mention that it was your house or that the house in fact… Read full post »
I have finally replaced that old (and stupid--and some would say scary) avatar with a new and slightly less scary one. I hope you wimps enjoy it. It's taken from this pic from my art opening last night in Buenos Aires!
One of the most important parts in the season finale of LOST occurs when Jack, Kate and Sawyer paddle to shore from the sub. After Kate and Sawyer admit that neither of them have a compass, they land on the beach and have no idea where they are. And then Vincent… Read full post »
Wow, I do love the cover of OS. It has really taken on a beautiful look. A minimum of 2 videos per day (thank god, cos I couldn't find those elsewhere), stock photos and a total jumble of articles. Is this what OS is about? If I were visiting OS for… Read full post »
If you've read some of my posts, you may know that I don't write much about my personal life. I think it's pretty boring to most people who aren't my friends. But this is a story of my life that may be able to help some people, so I want to… Read full post »
Hey, y'all. Just thought I'd let you know I'm done with posting the subway portraits. My last post only garnered one response and one rating, so I'm assuming only one person is interested. I'm not fishing for compliments, just explaining to anyone who might have enjoyed them why there won't be… Read full post »
For all my crazed fans, here are some more of those subway photos. I'm down in Buenos Aires for another art show(!), so there should be some fotos de BA coming soon. There are also several subway shots in my archive, just waiting to be loosed on the OS public.… Read full post »
I was recently hired by the Republican Party to assist in reinvigorating their brand identity. "What an exciting opportunity!" I thought.
As some in the media have pointed out, Dick Cheney seems a lot like a politician angling for re-election with all his brave torture talk and criticism of Obama. Why the sudden torrent of words from Mr. Cheney? One word: fear. What do you do when you're nervous and scared? You… Read full post »
