Finn is the only character who ages in a normal fashion: he began as a twelve-year-old, but this season he’s sixteen, and his relationships, and the show itself, have become deeper and (codedly) more sexual. There are moments when Finn’s story feels suspiciously like a compensatory fantasy, invented to disguise a trauma that can’t be faced head on—as if it were the Mulholland Drive of children’s television. Emily Nussbaum, The New Yorker
This week on Artist’s Notebook: Brooklyn-based artist Am Schmidt talks about Fierce (Untitled), an endurance performance where she wore Abercrombie & Fitch graphic shirts and Fierce cologne every day for one year inspired by Tehching Hsieh’s One Year Performance, Sincerity by R. Jay Magill and “de-branding the brand.”

POEM ABOUT LOVE
Edward Shenk 

don’t look it in the mouth;
a lover’s love or gifts at christmas,
  when birds fly south 

there are 2
turtle doves
falling for it
at the zoo

they do not speak or coo,
they don’t look it in the beak—
  they fuck & do not go extinct


I DREAMED THAT GOD WOULD BE FORGIVING
Bunny Rogers

Three charming rooms talk back and forth
enlisted for their strength and stamina
Together five sisters of addiction grow up the walls 
entrusting there is no world 
in which paranoia could save the two of us
Threat is infinite and jovial
Courage is a wink and a nod
Your spine is a joke
Your vertebrae are stacked snowballs
That will melt as your joints do every hour without fail
In this cruel, hot world
Where every root vegetable shrinks your dick
Where we wake up and go to work to laugh at your dick

Following up on our Metro story, now with video by Aymann and THX 1138 talk: Art of War: Coby Kennedy Turns Brooklyn Street Signs Into Post-Apocalyptic Weapons

“They’re almost acts of desperations in themselves,” he says about the weapons. “They are pieces of twentieth century left-overs that are repurposed for people’s momentary needs.” He rips a piece off his own curtains and starts wrapping it around the handle. “Purely utilitarian!” he laughs. Then, he drags the sculpture over the concrete floor and stomps on it, distressing the surface, weathering the weapon. “You gotta treat it like shit!” Sometimes, he uses beef blood for articulation. Or his own, if he accidentally injures himself mid-process. The sculptures themselves could hack off an arm. “At least two thirds of the way through,” the artist specifies.

ARTIST’S NOTEBOOK: RHETT JONES 
This week, Brooklyn-based artist Rhett Jones talks about his feature film The Villains inspired by Jean-Luc Godard’s La Chinoise, Marshall McLuhan and the proliferation of DIY new media. 

At the same time that I was outlining the McLuhan stuff and the La Chinoise stuff, I was reading about “flash mobs” popping up in random cities for the sole purpose of destruction. Kids would send out a mass text, show up in a corner store and wreck it. It seemed like a nice correlation to the theme of organization without purpose; a hammer without a nail — in direct opposition to the seemingly positive organizational purposes of the internet that had manifested in WikiLeaks, the Arab Spring.

He also premieres the project’s next stage as a Search Engine Generated Artwork that supplements unique sequences of found footage throughout the film, each time you watch it online.

It would have been well for the world if Raphael could have given us at least one picture of a leper, of whom there were a multitude on the highways and byways of Italy. All the squalor, all the misery of the period goes unrecorded, and we have Madonnas repeated perpetually for the glorification of the wealthy and the leisure class.
