CAC's Late Night Art Thread: Furry Spoons and Moron Art
— CAC

A moron in the last art thread asked if and when I will bring up Dada. So to open tonight's thread, Brian Eno and David Byrne give us (part of) a Hugo Ball poem, Gadji beri bimba, with I Zimbra:

On the subject of early 20th century art, tonight's Super Serious work from the world of art is an oldie courtesy of the lovely Meret Oppenheim:

Her work got only more racy from there.

Now, onto this edition of

In closing, I give you a condom filled with babies:

2 Crap art?  What are you, half a fag CAC?  I kid, but seriously?  I know nothing about art, so I'm open to some education.  But all this confirms my belief that most modern artists are grifters and the buyers are marks.

13 I Zimbra looks like about a year or two before Stop Making Sense....while they still had Adrian Belew hanging out.

Puts the Discipline video in perspective, though -- looks like Belew was playing against Roland guitar synths everywhere he went around that time.

18 Chinese government to make 'urgent' announcement By Kim Young-gyo
HONG KONG, Nov. 28 (Yonhap) -- The Chinese government said Sunday it will make an "urgent" announcement later in the day amid rising military tensions surrounding the Korean Peninsula.

China's foreign ministry said it will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. for both domestic and foreign reporters based in Beijing, adding that it will not accept any questions during the conference.

I find it hard to be offended by a magazine whose founder's dick probably wheezes during sex.

I'm sure the mothers and the flight attendants felt the same way.

27 As piano student, I'll have to say that Claire de lune...  has always struck me as pretty fucking insipid.

I have Oceans's 11 playing in the background on TV.

I'll give it a whirl now as a listener..

********************************************   OK, tell us what "insipid" means to you, and WHY Claire meets 31's  criteria yields "insipid" and your yields "evocative". .   You should get goddamn concrete with your analysis, lest you appear to be FLAKES who are basically saying "I didn't like/ liked it  it but I can't tell you why"

34 Hey LLC, take a chill pill. That was an entré into a discussion. I didn't think anyone wanted to read a dissertation on Debussy.

Posted by: Otis Criblecoblis at November 27, 2010 11:18 PM (fjoLg)

35 Debussy on the gramophone is like a dose of clap to the ears.

...or a stream of bat spit. Take your pick.

37 Good Morning Morons

I was sitting here enjoying a hungover post-Thanksgiving morning dividing up my weekly ration of pills and eating the last of the homemade dinner rolls for breakfast (all you guys eat your heart out if you don't have a wifey who makes homemade bread).

In any case while I was doing all this I was listening to the satellite music channel Sirius Holiday Traditions. They were playing Glenn Miller w/ the Modernairs doing a radio broadcast version of Jingle Bells complete with a commercial for Chesterfield cigarettes.

I LMAO because when I first turned the TV on it was tuned to Fox News and it came on with the inevitable commercial for the asshole lawyers doing the class-action lawsuit for the hip replacement doctors/company.

The freaking liberals have made our lives so much better by banning those evil cigarettes from TV and replacing them with ads for fucking lawyers suing doctors into bankruptcy.  Perhaps that is why TV turned to shit in the late 60s.

But, things got better when they followed up Glenn Miller/Modernairs with Tommy Dorsey/Pied Pipers and Winter Weather. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Pied Pipers they were a young Jo Stafford with a couple of also-ran guys. (I keed)

Posted by: Otis Criblecoblis

Two of my daughters play very well and they play all the signature pieces. Once My oldest played Claire de Lune in a recital and it was quite moving.

I am coaching my youngest to swing Tsshaikowsky's Concerto No1.

Maybe I could post a short clip sometime.

40 That Fisher Price Pastel is about 7 different versions of AWESOME!!!

Who is the artist?

I tried "Binging" the pic and got no joy.

Don't care if the artists' intent was to be a fucking ironic douche-bag commenting on modern western culture, that's an awesome and very evocative sketch!

That right there!

People wonder why artists used to paint boring shit, like baskets of fruit or a skate hung up in some filthy kitchen in France somewhere.

When true painters paint (or pastel), there is just something that they can bring to their subjects no matter how banal.

Too bad most young artists are being trained to deride their basic humanity.

There are just some things that can't be captured in a photo.  Too cold.

I much prefer the warmth and "pregnancy" of a pastel sketch, from time to time...

Thank you, CAC!

Posted by: Deety at November 28, 2010 10:06 AM (Jb3+B) That artist was just using his kids plastic toys for still lifes- I had joked with him about the "nightmare" the nuclear family must represent to the left. If you seriously want his info shoot me a message. This thread isn't a "selling house", more of a showcase but I am sure the moron who made it has links to more work.

43 Deety,
I am the moron in question. Glad you like it, thanks.
