I found this house randomly on Google earth and none of us knew how the hell it got there.
It’s Bjork’s house, Iceland (her home town) gave her this house and the island for putting Iceland on the map.
The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to
and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human
because in smoke and tear gas you can’t see race
SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY GIRLS WITH THE RED LINES UNDER THEY NAMES!
I feel you sister. Don’t worry We’ll stick together and be cool.

Artists universally despise artist’s statements, in my experience, and only do it under intense duress. We hate writing them and we hate people reading them. They are generally demanded by business managers, gallerists, collectors, schools, occasionally patrons (although not often, hail satan), press kits, CVs, and group shows or festivals.
Last time I was asked for an artist’s statement (for a press kit) I made Simon write it for me after listing off some shit I’ve done, and only gave it a very cursory glance before “approving” it.
My best guess is that you can safely ignore artist’s statements, and/or assume someone had to write it at gunpoint, or that it was written by a third party and the artist wanted as little to do with it as possible.

Artists statements: because people who buy big-a Art as an institution don’t think ‘I had a cool idea’, ‘I wanted to use this colour’ or ‘I was drunk’ are enough of a story for a piece because they couldn’t make it themselves.

A moment of silent for all those in retail this holiday season.

Black Friday instructions
*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.
hey i just thought of a fun game called Lets Stop Citing Stats About Violence/Poverty Among Bisexuals Without Also Acknowledging That Bi People Are “disproportionately women and people of color”
yup. those stats going around really seem to ignore this. correlation does not always imply causation, especially when there are soooo many factors.
