  • LOL, that's not me! I'm silly but I'm not bonkers. ;)

    (That does look a LOT like my cousin Gabriella though...)

    Cheers,

  • Ahhh, performance art, don't you love it?

    (I assume it's performance art, there's something kind of performance arty about it, anyway)

    Did I mention the time I was handed a sack of dirt and expected to treat it as if it were a baby?

    Or the time a woman suspended herself in a cargo net, at about head height, while assistants dripped yogurt and oatmeal on her?

    Good times, good times.

    I think not. It was on a Myspace website which I saw a while ago, and I think the girl was dared to! ;)

    Did I mention the time I was handed a sack of dirt and expected to treat it as if it were a baby?

    How long did you study in Lee Strassberg's Studio?

    Or the time a woman suspended herself in a cargo net, at about head height, while assistants dripped yogurt and oatmeal on her?

    Okaaaaaay.

    Sounds like a porno, as if made by Alain Resnais.

    Good times, good times.

    Pics! Or at least, more anecdotes, XWL. ;)

    Cheers,

  • I said I was expected to treat the sack of dirt as if it were a baby, I didn't say I actually did.

    As far as the naked woman suspended, it was part of a gallery show put together by a friend that was shown in both LA and Yokohama (though not all the pieces travelled), and the conceit was that all the art had to be able to fit in a suitcase.

    (My friend's piece was an actual suitcase with a papier mache version of himself curled up inside)

    The woman in the cargo net was actually one of the better known artists at the show (but her name escapes me). Considering the description, you'd be surprised how unsexual the spectacle was.

    But sorry, no pictures, didn't have my trusty digital camera back then.

    I thought performance art for the photo posted here cause I've seen pieces that aren't far off from what that girl is shot doing, plus there's the text behind her that looked like it could have been part of an exhibit.

    Sorry no more anecdotes for that night, I was too busy hitting on one woman exhibiting work there, while avoiding my ex who was also exhibiting to do too much fun stuff.

    (did I mention I used to have a weakness for art school chicks?)

  • Hmm ... still the old geezer saying "where's the beef?" still takes the cake!

    This weekend at Exxxotica you walked in to have women dancing in cages in your face. I'm so over it. Bring back the crazy abuela with where's the beef!

  • XWL, amazing, simply amazing...

    (did I mention I used to have a weakness for art school chicks?)

    No. Tell!

    Firstly, is it true they all wear black underwear, and have safety pins in their privates?

    Cheers,

    Hey! Wheeeeeeeere's the BEEF! I remember when Cyclops was first installed at Wimbledon, Ivan Lendl made Centre Court laugh en masse, when he yelled back:

    "Hey! Where's the Bleep!"

    This weekend at Exxxotica you walked in to have women dancing in cages in your face. I'm so over it. Bring back the crazy abuela with where's the beef!

    Clara something, IIRC.

    She died shortly after gaining notoriety, aged 80 something.

    I loved la crazy abuela, and her comadres de Begue Keeng!

    Cheers,

    A gentleman never tells, but since I'm not one, the answer would be yes, and no.

    And, Clara Peller

    Well, yeah...you've got to have something metal for the alligator clip attached to the car battery to connect to!

  • Sarah Peller?

    "I don't think there's anybody back there!"

    I don't usually keep my ladies in a cage. Makes 'em a tad gripey!
