This Imbecile Again
— Ace

Oprah cast as a god-queen because, see, she's "the closest thing we have to a living deity." I guess some might say we actually already have a living deity.

This guy... it's annoying because he's a one-trick pony with the cutesy ironic-heroic portrayal of celebrities and yet he gets attention for it. I don't object to this politically -- what do I care if he half-mocks, half-glorifies nitwits like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Oprah Winfrey?

But I object because it's easy, stupid, shallow, and gimmicky, like so much modern art of outrage is, and yet he's feted for this stupidity.

Oh, pish-posh! His cheeky ironic-heroic portrayals present interesting questions about our celebrity culture!

Really? Like what? Which "questions" are being posed here? And man, the observation that celebrities serve the same shared-mythos function in our society of the gods of Greece is, well, not exactly fresh.

Whatever. I guess I can always console myself with my Life Motto that sustains me in times of anxiety and fear, We're all going to die so who gives a rat's ass?

1 Oops. Everything is centred--centred around Oprah!

2 Oprah's gravitational mass has caused everything to begin orbiting around her.

To the airlocks!

3 I'm guessing this will induce another crash diet for her.

How many times do you think a person can fluctuate 80-100 pounds before their skeleton spontaneously disintegrates?

Wasn't his sculpture of Spears where he had her on all fours and giving birth? Did we really need to see that?

11 Nice boobs.

Just sayin'

12 At least this guy has some genuine representational talent. That puts him ahead of 86.9% of the other edgy assholes in the art market.

17 Oprah is getting criticism for endorsing Obama because he's black instead of endorsing Hillary because she's a woman. She's caught between Barack and a hard place.

18 Yeah, Ace. I can see why you're bothered that people are giving this guy so much ink. Wait . . .

With those lines running down her, she mostly reminds me of a partially carved side of beef.


Oprah, it's what's for dinner.

22 I think it is kind of cool, in a cool sort of angry black woman way.

But then again, I have a thing for curvy black women.

I met a Nigerian lady once at one of those African stores in a mall  and she was curvy like in this statue. Her sexuality was undeniable. I had to walk away before I grew too uncomfortable.

27 10 beat me to it. Nothing changes. The first great artwork of the western world was the Venus of Villendorf. This is a direct, if debased, descendant.

29 There are code-words in the art world.

Edgy, innovative = says the same things all artists say.
Satirical, ironic = says the same things all artists say.
Defunded = actually says something different from other artists.

30 number of ejaculations:  3.7

If the fattie still looks like a woman, (i.e a waist) the extra meat is not so bad.

And in bronze, no one can see the cellulite

You know, if one were to urinate, defecate, and otherwise insert this uninspired piece into one's orifices, it would go from "no value" to priceless.


It bears consideration.

Pretty much. In terms of technical ability, this guy's definitely skilled. His subject matter isn't particularly clever or artistic, but he might get inspired for real some day.

Didn't this guy do a bust of Hillary? All of the work he's done so far is his job application as the Party's Sculptor, drooling at the possibility of all the commissions he'll get to carve statues of Comrade Rodham.

35 Which "questions" are being posed here?

Don't know about anyone else, but "Could I palm those big giant floppy golden tiddays like basketballs?" was the one that came to my mind.

36 ...and yet he's feted for this stupidity...

I think you mean fetid.

Pretty much everything reminds me of Zardoz, really.

46 Well, excuse me, but in the year of the rat (concurrent, I do believe) if Ace or anyone else were to give a rat's arse this would be a generous and deeply transcendent donation ... to what I'm not sure, but have some respect for the rear end of the current faviourite pooper. Gung ay fah choi.
