[WTF] Watch These Children Interview Insane Clown Posse

[WTF] Watch These Children Interview Insane Clown Posse

Okay, before you even continue reading, just stop and watch the interview first. Please. It is so glorious, and will absolutely make everything else below worth your time. Watched it? Great. If you were like me, after only watching it once all the way through, I just had way too many questions that I needed...
[CULT TALK] Season of Glass: Alexis Penney

[CULT TALK] Season of Glass: Alexis Penney

photos by Alexis Penney & Hether Fortune   What does it mean to be a modern artist? In an age of obnoxiously short attention spans (present company included) & a general “we don’t care” blase attitude toward everything, it’s hard to pinpoint what gets through and to whom. Now I’m just speculating here because I...

[BUY SHIT] HUSH, A Vaguely Vaginal Cocoon In Which To Escape From The Chaos

  There are the things in life that you want, and then there are things in life that you simply just need to facilitate your ability to tolerate all the noisy, talentless know-it-alls that infiltrate your daily existence without so much as a thank you or please. In fact, there is one of the pesky...
[TRUE STORY] You Don't Have To Be A Gay Man To Get Turned On By Tom Of Finland

[TRUE STORY] You Don’t Have To Be A Gay Man To Get Turned On By Tom Of Finland

Sexuality is not stationary. It is not predictably coded like html. It’s more like a good patina (Ed note: good word) on a piece of metal–how it wears and rusts and evolves with age, showing evidence of its environment and time on this earth and that agonizing crush on your same sex best friend that you never...
[TO DO] Tonight! Tasya Van Ree, Rick Rodney and Steven Arroyo Art Show

[TO DO] Tonight! Tasya Van Ree, Rick Rodney and Steven Arroyo Art Show

On nothing, just three of the coolest people I know showing new work at one of the coolest new gallery spaces in Los Angeles. (Okay, I don’t actually know Tasya IRL, but she’s the babe to end all babes and takes the most gorgeous photos of the most gorgeous women). Anyhow, as you know, Rick...
[BRA BURNING] What's The Big Deal About Petra Collins' Bloody Vag Tee?

[BRA BURNING] What’s The Big Deal About Petra Collins’ Bloody Vag Tee?

If you haven’t heard, some people are repulsed by artist Petra Collins’ Period Power Tee featuring a menstruating vag with a warm welcome mat of pubic hair. Also, if you haven’t heard, some people are repulsed by vaginas, pubic hair, women, the female body, menstruation, masturbation, tampons, talking about tampons, buying their girlfriend tampons, unwaxed...
[TO DO] Johnny Vampotna "Ghost Noir" at Slow Culture

[TO DO] Johnny Vampotna “Ghost Noir” at Slow Culture

It’s October! Which, for us, means slutty witches and witchy stuff and those candy corn earrings that look deceivingly edible but aren’t and probably a catsuit or two. Anyhow, it’s not quite Halloween yet, but tonight’s Johnny Vampotna “Ghost Noir” opening at Slow Culture Gallery is a great way to get into the spirit of…spirits,...

[LISTS] Things I Thought While Watching The Marina Abramovíc Documentary + More

It’s 9:30. I’m home alone, except for the dogs. Good thing they can’t judge me. I have writer’s block. My boyfriend is next door shooting a lookbook with lots of American Flags and drinking Bourbon with our slightly misogynist neighbor who I used to be friends with but don’t speak to anymore (which can get...
[TO DO] Rick Rodney: The Present Past @ Slow Culture  + Mini Interview

[TO DO] Rick Rodney: The Present Past @ Slow Culture + Mini Interview

Rick Rodney’s been at it for more than two decades, but you wouldn’t know it by how humble and diligent he is with a camera. Though he’s the lawful owner of multiple Canon Mark Whatever-The-Fuck-Is-The-Latest-Industry-Standard, the ones with big, imposing lenses, he still scours estate sales and flea markets for the out-of-production vintage film point...

[CULT TALK] Illustrator Esra Røise On Hair, Cake, and Feminism

I can’t remember at exactly what point I decided to make Norwegian illustrator Esra Caroline Røise my Pen Pal, but I do recall the precise moment it became official, an exchange involving the ceremonious swapping of compliments and cat photos via email, of course. You don’t really need to know the whole story about how she...

[TO DO] Flat File Flea: A Swap Meet For Artists And Designers

Ok, all you art fags (points to self), listen up! Pick up (but don’t throw away) your beers and plastic cups and step away from Echo Park. Let’s head to our other favorite former gang-infested neighborhood of Highland Park for Flat File Flea, a swap meet for artists and designers, and a meeting place for...
