Lots of stuff happening (mainly of the bad and then worse kind). I have been watching lots of Gamecenter CX which I find incredibly therapeutic because it brings back so many childhood memories. I also find AD “Adventure Island 28 Hours Straight So Beautiful I Think I Cried” Urakawa immensely attractive and such a graceful gamer *cough* which might be another reason why I’m watching Arino play really obnoxious vintage games for hours on end. Oh well, we all have our weak spots.
Nothing much going on in the arts but it seems that decent exhibition programmes begin again in September, so let me just share some things that got stuck in my Twitter over the past few days.
DEPRESSING ART NEWS
Doubly sad times for censorship in Australia…
• Robert Crumb cancels Australia show after being told he produces “crude and perverted images emanating from what is clearly a sick mind.” His answer?
“I have a lot of anxiety about having to confront some angry sexual assault crisis group.”
• Will Wiles for Cabinet Magazine on The Behavioral Sink
“Elsewhere, cannibalism, pansexualism, and violence became endemic. Mouse society had collapsed.”
• Mask of a 1970s-era Elvis Presley from Malawi at the Brooklyn Museum
“The painted wood mask, “Elvis” Mask for Nyau Society , was worn by a “secret society” made up of Chewu peoples during ceremonies and rituals.”
Substrom made a really nice video for Clark. And by “really nice” I mean “NSFW”:
“We knew our ideals were high. The lower we sink, the less we care why.” (from Jeopardy by The Sound – cover art by the Stenberg Brothers):
Overtone singing with x-ray image made by the Dept. of Radiology at the CHUV Lausanne (via NotCot):
