The new show opens with Young massaging Sarah K’s back. Sara J. longingly quips, “Young, will you massage my vagina?” Wow -- Sara J. has game! Or she’s randy! Or just high. In a fleeting shot, I think I spy her on the roof getting stoned.
Anyway: For this week’s challenge, four randomly selected two-person teams have to make an outdoor painting on a 44-foot long brick wall on the side of a building under the Manhattan Bridge. The setting is stirring. The teams pair off.
Dusty and Young develop a tender partnership: Dusty just became a father and Young lost his. Dusty notes that Young’s black short shorts make him look like “a gay construction worker” and claims that all the ladder-climbing in this challenge is resulting in multiple scrotum-sightings. Sarah K. happily confirms this. The Sucklord, having shown a more human side last week, is making me like him more -- and he promptly screws that pooch. The minute he’s paired with Sarah K. he crows, “Cutie with a booty … It’s pretty obvious she wants my body.” Sarah K’s body language says otherwise, her arms crossed in front of her breasts. After Sara J. coyly observes that Sucklord “could impregnate Sarah K. by the end of this challenge,” Lola coos, “I’m not jealous … There’s enough of the Sucklord to go around.” OMG! If Lola is talking about the Suckpenis, I’m off the show.
The spirit of art. The very premise of this show defies anything and everything that the spirit of art is about. Boundaries, rules and pretentious people trying to define what art is or should be...these notions have been what has kept the art-world in a stagnating bubble for so long, holding it hostage and suffocating its relevance. Art is almighty, and it's fueled by the human spirit, and spirit of creativity, and we should all be so lucky to realize that the ability to create is the almighty gift. Those who choose not to utilize this gift, dwell and fester in the ranks of the judgemental hypocrites, systematically harming that which they parasitically depend on.
Thankfully that era is coming to an end.
Didn't you notice, the Sucklord's piece was a self-portrait. He is the rat in the maze. I'm sorry he didn't find the cheese. oh well ....
Maybe now that Sucklord isn't around Lola can get serious and doesn't have him arund to entice...she appears to be so immature,like a child w/ color crayons,whereas theres nothing wrog w/ that as long as its not just scribbles.She& Sucklord were attracted because of their childlike way of seeing the world but is it art!!???You know!!!!Looking forward to more...
I can't stand LOLA. She's what? 23? And has lived such a full long life to be SO TORTURED. Ugh. Seeing all these other posts, not many other people like her either. Good.
Good lord, I hate LOLA. She's what 20-something and SO tortured because she's lived such experiences? She couldn't even respect the fact that the Sucklord had a girlfriend...SHE was lonely. Boo hoo. Luckily, most people on these threads can't stand her either. IF she wins, I won't watch this show ever again. She has no talent. She TRACED that photograph and then what? Added little lines like "arthritis" on the guys hand? Really? That's art? Tracing?
Michelle & Lola's 'art' looked like the kind of scribbles you see drawn on bathroom walls-and this is Jerry Saltz' favorite work this week??? As soon as I saw that train wreck of supposedly irreverent tongue-in-cheek 'art', I knew that Jerry would love it, as he tends to pick favorites (last year was Miles) and then loves whatever junk they put out. And then he criticizes work that not only the viewers like, but the guest judges like (like last year, when Abdi did the baptism painting and everyone was impressed and what does Jerry say? He didn't like the frame??) I'm not sure how they pick the judges, but if they want viewers to keep watching, this can't be such an unpleasant experience.
