“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important

So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

If there was ever an argument for why art is important, this is it. We are, largely, fucking monsters.

The Dismemberment Plan
"The City"
Emergency & I

I like NPR. They post all sorts of obscure bands and music that you simply won’t find anywhere else. When I saw a post yesterday that they had the new The Dismemberment Plan record streaming from their site I was ecstatic because I had no idea they were even back together much less that they had a new record out!

When I headed over to listen my sense of joy and wonder quickly faded, and about 3/4 of the way through listening I had to stop because it was so bad. 

In an effort to expunge all memory of the incident I am posting one of my favorite songs by TDP and marathoning their previous catalog offerings and reveling in the glory therein. 

It’s unfortunate that I feel the same way about the new D Plan album. They rank in the higher echelons of my favorite bands, but I can’t really get into their new work, despite my excitement from learning of their reunion.

Had to reblog this, as The City is one of the greatest songs with all the feels that affects me to this day.

I don’t reblog too often these days. But if I’m gonna, it’s gonna be breathtaking stuff like this.

I have a friend

Well… Closer than a friend. He is one of the most amazing individuals ever devised by nature. He added another year today. He is worth more than every year he’s been on this earth. Happy Birthday #itemforty

Yes I am going to draw more of May and Molly from Pancakes. I have a mini-series in the works that is about how these two met. But before that gets underway, here is a peek at May’s family, and also a glimpse of Molly’s. 

WELL YUP THAT WAS AWESOME.

Guys, my feels…
