Jerry's still in shock over the Sucklord and Lola's flirting.

on Oct 27, 20110

I'm just getting over the public humiliation of being a televised douchebag. Last week, I gave the artist who turned out to be the loser, Kathryn, a hard time when I didn't know she was sick. All week long, strangers stopped me on the street, snapping, "You're mean." A woman at a Met preview scorched me as "callous." "At least that's over," I think as this episode opens -- whereupon the artists start off by saying they're aghast at my "brutality." D'oh. Anyway: After the credits, our host China Chow announces this week's challenge: "Create a piece of Pop Art!" My douchbagdom disappears as cringing begins. "Pop is bold! Pop is brash. Pop is sex!" Simon barks. I think, Pop is going to be the death of me.

I am really glad I stumbled upon your blog Jerry. I appreciate your honesty about what does and does not work for you with the show - makes it much more interesting. I love your final interpretation of art being about something else outside of understanding.

Jojo and big girl -- Yes! Jerry's blogs are lovely! Wise and clever and intimate. His blogs have me hooked on the show, and I'm even getting a little Art 101 in the bargain
