Oops. I made baby Jesus happy for a moment. Dammit!!!
celticgent

I hate that shit.
Donnie Darko
I do too, he should have used Baby Jesus.

In all seriousness though, I met the guy, he spoke at my college. He's too self important for my tastes. He thinks shock value is a sophisticated form of high art, but it's just a cover for his lack of talent. At least John Waters has a sense of humour with his shock value stuff, Andres Serrano takes himself waaaay too seriously. The ironic thing is that that Piss Christ sculpture is pretty cool looking in person, but it's because it's all cloudy and you can barely see the cross, which was unintentional.
Kirk
I mean I hate that canned shit.

The pop-up ads on that website are insidious.

You got something against ducks or roosters? You got to admit the monkey is cute. No wings, tho. Shortsighted.

It is nothing new. Warhol did piss paintings. He would throw parties in his loft and get famous people like Mick Jagger and David Bowie to piss on his canvas after indulging in an all night drug and drink fest. If I remember correctly, Keith Richards' piss delighted Warhol due to the bright colors.

Somehow that all sounds right.
