Carved Tyres by Wim Delvoye

Wim Delvoye (born 1965 in Wervik, West Flanders)is a Belgian neo-conceptual artist known for his inventive and often shocking projects. Much of his work is focused on the body. He repeatedly links the attractive with the repulsive, creating work that holds within it inherent contradictions- one does not know whether to stare, be seduced, or to look away. As Robert Enright wrote in Border Crossings, “Delvoye is involved in a way of making art that reorients our understanding of how beauty can be created”. Wim Delvoye has an eclectic oeuvre, exposing his interest in a range of themes, from bodily function, to the Catholic Church, and numerous subjects in between. He lives and works in Belgium, but recently moved to China after a court of law judged his pig tattoo art projects illegal.

I remember when your head caught flame”


"You go to Italy and you look at Michelangelo’s work, and there are people saying, ‘Come on, let’s go, I can’t stand it.’ [Laughs.]  And it doesn’t lessen the achievement of what he has done. It just says that everyone is not going to be enamored of your particular art, and I don’t think that’s an unhealthy thing. But American society says, ‘Wait a minute. If that happens, then you won’t get to make another film, therefore you must make your films more accessible to people so that they will like it.’ If you don’t like my films, I can’t do anything about it, but I’m a street person so I don’t care about being esteemed. If esteem will help you make the next picture, then great. And if antipathy will help you make the next film, I don’t really care.I’m going to be myself. I want to make a film I can be proud of."  — John Cassavetes

Real Time with Bill Maher: 6.6.14 — Anthony Weiner, Jim Geraghety, Nicolle Wallace


Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.

It’s a miracle!

That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.

That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.

It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
