The artist who lays eggs with her vagina – or why performance art is so silly
In my work, seriousness was essential, otherwise the jokes fall flat.
In my work, jokes were essential, otherwise the seriousness would dissipate.
Why do I compare a joke to a poorly-made cake?
Why do I think seriousness is a gas (a form of matter, ungraspable, boundless, evanescent, chaotic and ghostlike)?

I am greatly irritated by the contemporary use of “swag” as derived from “swagger” (AFAICT).
As far as I’m concerned, you’ve only got “the swag” if you’ve got a bag containing the plate, silverware, and candlesticks.
Although not explicitly referenced, I would not be surprised to see Taffy with swag.
Bonus points for wearing the optional domino-mask.

Czech Radio (a song in three parts)
Tamás St.Auby, Czech radio (1969) (exegesis) (sideways exegesis)
shitphone, a love story (okay, okay, its a phone, not a radio).
I was living in Budapest and volunteering at Artpool in 1993, where I saw St.Auby’s Czech radio as part of the _3x4_ exhibit. I had it explained to me in person, and at a post-opening dinner, his toddler-daughter fed me my salad piece-by-piece.
22 years later, I am reading an article on cheap smartphones, and see the czech-radio. Dumb bricks. Only this time, who is fooled?

This blog is not (necessarily) dead. I’ve just been busy.
And since Dropbox is blocked at my new place of employment, and my primary interaction on here was gifs-via-dropbox…. well, I’ve been quieter. Here.
I’ve been active elsewhere, on-and-off.
But, for old times sake, some gif-links!

That’s all for now!
