Damn mess.
A Big Mess

  • In these trying economic times artists are doing things that just a year ago would have horrified their dealers. Case in point is Mike Giants open studios in which he is selling new originals and prints for cash on the barrel. (via TWBE)
  • “Ironically, the younger generations in general don’t perceive corporate involvement to be a negative—there isn’t the same stigma as there was when I was younger; an artist can have a gallery exhibition and be highlighted on a commercial billboard right outside the gallery with no ill effect. For better or worse, that particular punk ethic seems to have dissipated and there are less starving artists because of it.” Dave Kinsey talks about the changing tides in our culture, for better or worse. (via citrus report)
  • George Clinton meeting Kraftwerk in an elevator. Detroits hottest export. (via av club)
  • The queen of x-rated dancehall slackness. (via heatwave)
  • Todays bit of Tortoise. An excellent album. (via blogasauras)
