Artists got to be multi-taskers in this economy. John Kilduff has a show on public access called Let’s Paint TV. In it, Kilduff paints while on a treadmill and then attempts various tasks to keep the show interesting. In this episode, he paints while on a treadmill, while eating a watermelon, while talking a lot.
There are 4 brands of shoes/sneakers I like… Adidas, Converse, Puma, and Vans. My go to shoe are and always will be, Vans. Let me introduce you to The Vans Zapato del Barco. They feature a canvas low-profile upper with raw edge detail. Vulcanized outsole with cushioning footbed. Metal eyelets for quick lacing. Lightly padded collar. Get them here. Anything black works too.

Sam Hseih‘s One Year performance piece, Cage Piece (1978-1979) is currently on display at Moma and it is amazing. Just imagine…Solitary confinement, locked in a cage for one year (365 days). No communication with anybody, no reading, no writing, no radio, no tv, no nothing. A friend comes over once a day to take a photo of you in the same spot. This must have been intense and an incredible lesson in self discipline.

Michael Scott Addis is both a visionary
“I’m not addicted to rock,” Addis explains over a scrambled egg breakfast. “For me, it’s almost a medicine. When I’m not feeling too good, I smoke a little rock, and I feel great! And my mind processes everything more clearly.”
And an Artist
“He affixes unique masks, made from a soap-suds-and-newspaper mâche recipe he invented in jail, to lampposts throughout the neighborhood.”
Rapelay, a japanese game about raping women…..Ok. One website review describes
“tears glistening in the young girl’s eyes” as she is attacked in graphic detail. Players begin the game by stalking a mother on a subway station before violently raping her. They then move on to attack her two daughters described as virgin schoolgirls. Players are also allowed to enter ‘freeform mode’ where they can rape any woman and get other male game characters to join the attacks. Pregnancy and abortion are listed as ‘key features’. One review said: “If she does become pregnant you’re supposed to force her to get an abortion, otherwise she gets more and more visibly pregnant each time you have sex.
I can see this skit on SNL, the pitch session for the game. How do you start the brainstorming… “ok, um I got a idea, go with it, here it goes, have you ever wanted to rape some one…. I got this idea for a game…” I dont’ think its going to look good on your resume. There are a lot of articles about Amazon banning sales of the game. The strange thing the game came out in 2006. Why is it popular now? I think you can download it here. Reading the comments is strange.
That, and other facts you will learn in this informational video
Well, those days of crazy speculation and Londoners throwing their money at anything made with a stencil or wheatpaste are over. Much to the displeasure of Bonham’s, yesterday’s ‘Urban Art’ sale did not do so great. See the results here.
