Halloween! / Plus, Is It Art, Or Isn't It?

Happy Halloween, readers, and we'll keep today's post short since we'll be seeing most of you at the Replay tonight to witness "Adventureband" performing the soundtrack to Adventureland (oh, we can't wait to hear the opening notes of "Bastards of Young" and fondly recall this year's best unknown film which most of you were not hip enough to see in theaters but are now discovering on DVD and thinking you've really found something amazing but not knowing that those of us who are cooler than you saw it on opening afternoon!).

And don't forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight. Yes indeed: we can all get one hour drunker at the bar!


The photographer Neil Krug and the model Joni Harbeck are former Larryville residents who have an upcoming book called Pulp which is getting good advance press. Krug's photos are "taken with Polaroid film years past its sell-by date. They have the kind of grainy, sun-scorched feel of a Sergio Leone spaghetti western." (NY-Times). Let's take a look at a few (click to--slightly--enlarge):

Chip: "Guns are always penis symbols in art, right? So it's like she's holding a penis. I like this, and I give it a rare vote of 'Art.'"

Richard: "I prefer Zaguar's collages, but I'll go 'Art' as well, mainly for the legs."

See, it's clear Pip craves cock.

He sees it everywhere. He finds it artful. He wants it inhis ass, or possibly in a more cheese-filled fold between stretch marks ridge and that little patch of rabbit fur between his third and four stomachs.

Why, oh why, won't the LC hold a contest for the drunkest hipster to five Pip the blood-throbbing, purple masthead straight into his willing, quivering mass of beef pudding... So that we may film and discuss it here.

--Not only would it be art, it might be Maplethorpe.

Oh terrific.

The one funny thing on this blog had become unhip to discuss. I don't even know who the hell Chip and Kip are, but reading about two obviously gay men trying to have sex with them online was the best thing on here.

Wait, what?

We're not gay. Satire, fool. Satire.

Noggle: not a pervert.
Us: not gay.
Kip and Chip: same person... and no one wants to consider him sexually (least of all gay men).

--There a dense population to this readership...

I rarely understand what goes on in my own comments section!

Who are you sons-a-bitches anyway!?

The fuck!?! said...

All I know is:

When we can't mock Chip/ Pip/ K!p anymore without being misunderstood... Then, I just can't be part of this world any more.

--Either people are getting dumbed or people are getting SIGNIFICANTLY dumber.

I think Noggle might be a pervert...

Well, yah, I mean that is an honest possibility.

But the point is that's I'm not a 40 year old pervert (for a few more years)

--all I demand is that my critics get their fucking facts straight!
