Privilege Denying Dude

I think this is called a meme, but I had to go look up what a meme was so I'm not totally sure. Anyhow, there was a tumblr called Privelege Denying Dude as of like a week or so ago. But I guess the guy who's photo they had used wasn't into it so now theres a new awesome dude who volunteered himself. Hopefully the tumblr account will be back up soon, cause these are cracking me up.

I've actually tried to explain this one before.

This one actually made me laugh out loud.

Wow, this one totally sums up my life.

This one sort of makes me feel like throwing something at the wall.

This also makes me feel like throwing shit, like every day of the week.

Wow, I'm pretty sure I've heard this a handful of times too.

Ridin That Train -New York Style

I'm so into this video of a girl calling out this gross guy on the subway. He's been being a perv and showing people his penis which apparently has a condom on it for some reason. I think if everyone reacted the way she did we could really curb this problem.

The 90s : Part 1

So I had been doing this thing with the decades but then I got hung up cause I really didn't feel like doing the 80s. I just wasn't in the mood okay- maybe I'll go back to it. Anyhow this is the 60s. This is the 70s. And now I bring you part one of the 90s.

This one brings me straight back to high school.

Ok bringin the mood back up a little. Here is Creep. This came out when I was in Junior High and that Halloween there were a million little girls dressed as TLC in those silk robes and pajamas at the Halloween dance. I was not cool though so I was a 1970s era dead boyscout and no one wanted to dance with me.

This is cute.
I got these boots to make you happy,
I scuffed them up to turn you on,
Now I don't care about you,
I've got my Helen Love t-shirt on

Daisy Chainsaw - oh lordy. This video.

This group Shampoo is sort of what Edie from Absolutely Fabulous probably hoped she was going to have for a daughter. Shampoo is amazing. They even some how tapped into the fact that shopping carts were kind of cool in the 90s. Like hello, shopping carts, so random.

This is such a good anthem. Also I suggest watching Beavis and Butthead's take on Whatta Man.

And of course....

Moments of Louise

These are photos and quotes from W magazine on the last year of artist Louise Bourgeois' life. Interspersed are fabric works she made in the 2000s now on show at Hauser & Wirth. I was kind of freaked out to see these because they look so much like what I've been working on lately. Except of course Louise's are about a million times better. The Tracey Emin quote about her is so true.

“Collaborating with Louise was a massive privilege, like holding hands with history. She proved that while most male artists reach their peak when they’re 40, 45—it’s a bit like sex, one big ejaculation—women keep coming. Louise just kept coming and coming and coming, right until the end.” —artist Tracey Emin

“Louise was an incredibly careful listener, and she expected you to listen carefully as well. She would not repeat herself or explain things to you. You either got it or you did not. And if you did not, that was your problem.” —Charlotta Kotik, curator

“About 10 years ago I went to one of the famous Sunday salons at Louise’s house on 20th Street. One artist brought a small sculpture, and Louise questioned its purpose, destroying it completely. By the time it was my turn, I was ready to flee, but she happened to like one of my pieces very much. She said, ‘Yes, that’s right.’ I felt incredibly relieved, as if I had passed the exam of my life.” —artist Guillermo Kuitca

“I once spent time with Louise on her couch, along with a stuffed pink Bourgeois giantess sculpture. Nearby was a red wax animal ear, or maybe a human shoulder blade. I was half apologizing about an obsession with the perfect blue, but Louise said, ‘Of course you must work until you have the right blue.’ I felt professional then and not crazy.” —artist Jenny Holzer

“The first time I had dinner at Louise’s house, the appetizer was a bed of lettuce with pieces of octopus and banana sprinkled on top, followed by ham hocks, and a Klondike bar with alcohol poured over it for dessert. I had expected the conversation to be memorable, but it’s the menu that’s stayed with me to this day.” —Wendy Williams, managing director, Louise Bourgeois studio

Gimme Dat

Back by popular demand. Here's more Ciara!
I'm kind of into her ridiculous outfits in this video. I wish there was some sort of Ciara dance class I could go to to let out my enthusiasm.
