    She decided to have another cup of coffee, deeming the alternative a tad melodramatic. At least for today. That’s the only question, really.
    A dose of self-awareness does the world an incredible amount of good. Not to be confused with introspection, it’s just a forced out-of-body experience stating, “Yep, that’s how I look to the rest of them. Let’s carry on.”

     
  3. givemelegendary:

in celebration, admiration and adulation for the great Cindy Sherman’s retrospective opening today at the MoMA Museum. she is the 3rd female artist in the museum’s history to get this honor, and i believe the first female photographer to receive it as well. this lady is the reason i ever picked up a camera. #givecreditwhereitsdue <3.

    Dylan-Dylan Donald Judd, I’m a Kerouacature.

     
  6. "I think people hate the guy because they hate venality, ego, and excess …"

    "David Hockney and Yayoi Kusama have both scored points off of Hirst recently, needling him in the media about not personally painting his work. But, come on, we all know that these are cheap shots. Some artists make their work by hand, some don’t. I’d think that 90 years after Laszlo Maholy-Nagy phoned instructions for a painting into a factory we wouldn’t have to debate this point."

    In agreement for the most part; I think it’s silly for people who are actually in the art world to revert back to this flimsy argument. Yet… it has always been difficult to separate the artist and the art, and in many cases, and in Hirst’s especially, the persona is part and parcel of the work.

    Recently, my criticism professor revisited issues of judgment. Hyper-theoretical oil bubbles of Kant and Donald Judd blop-blopped to the surface.
    In an age of post-Enlightment where universals are left in sad, naive tumbleweed-dreams, the only reasonable conclusion I’ve realized I can come to is to accept that, tangentially related to Wilde’s sentiment wherein he says, “There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are either well written or badly written,” the case is similar but fine-tuned in the contemporary realm of visual arts.
    There is no good art or bad art, only art that does or does not contribute to the great debate, to the public forum… in whatever way such a contribution manages to manifest. In such a light, I understand Hirst’s work, and I think the Spot Paintings are extremely influential, and even necessary.
    That doesn’t mean I have to like them.
    This is, what we call, a necessary evil.

     
  7. Seriously, Kerouac will never be overrated in my eyes.

    I mean:


    The Chessplayers Wont End

    Still they sit

    Millions of hats

    In underwater foliage

    Over marble games

    The Greeks of Chess

    Plot the Pop

    of Mate

    King Queen

    - I know their game,

    their elephant with the pillar

    With the pearl in it,

    Their gory bishops

    And Vital Pawns -

    Their devout frontline

    Sacrificial pawn shops

    Their stately king

    Who is so tall

    Their Virgin Queens

    Pree ing to Knave

    The Night Knot

    - Their Bhagavad Gitas

    of Ignorance,

    Krishna’s advice,

    Comma,

    The game begins


    -excerpt, MacDougal Street Blues

    Hello. This is my life. I have that shirt, and that&#8217;s pretty much how I wear my hair every day. Plus &#8212; pants? Lame.
