just remember, mr. brockie put out an album last year called "diarrhea of a madman." seems unlikely he cares too much what we'll think. trailer trash teenagers need to have SOMEONE they can identify with! if someone knows him, they should invite him into the debate.
Richie...I suggest reading a whole post before you make a comment on it. I said this has nothing to do with being offended! I just think it's unnecessary rubbish and shows a total lack of imagination. It relys on shock instead of substance.
As far as "growing up"...that's what I'd like to see the artists do that create this crap.
Max...I'm sorry, but it seems foolish to defend ALL art just because it's art. Defending the artists right to create it is one thing and I'm not trying to take that away. But 'cmon...this is a ridiculous. Just because it's art doesn't mean it's good. And please don't anyone come back with that "good is in the eye of the beholder" crap 'cause shit is shit no matter how many raisins are in it!
As far as even commenting on it...I don't like making negative comments and rarely do, I wasn't gonna bother to say anything about this one but truthy called me out.
Christ...ZSD...you pull a Jane's Addiction guote out of me...
Grow up and drop the offended stance cause the illustration isn't what you hoped it would be. YOU ARE MORE RIDICULOUS THAN THIS POSTER.
Simpsons song quote...
JUST DON'T LOOK. JUST DON'T LOOK.
Maybe if you don't look yourwhole life and the lifes of your friends will be better and more complete.
I don't know what I find most sad...The artists that create this kind of crap, The people that actually like it, or the ones that put down those that see it as crap. I mean c'mon... people are actually defending this mindless garbage???
>>>why no response from the offended in the past<<<
Because If I commented on all the posters that depended totally on shock value instead of a good concept and art to draw attention to themselves I'd be posting way more than I have time for.
Don't get me wrong...I LOVE dark humor. I own porn. I'm NOT easily offended. In fact this has NOTHING to do with being offended. It's just plain BAD crap. It's poorly designed. It's a poor concept. I'll stand by what I've said on other comment sections...a poster that needs to rely strictly on shock value is either making up for a band that's lacking, or an artist that is lacking.
>>>maybe it's just a real 'cosmetically challenged' skinhead girl gobblin that John The Conqueror Root.<<< Now THAT's funny!!!
Sure...thats what you said a week ago. And still, no calls.
Well, Ill tell you ONE thing casanova...don't even think that youre going to see the kids. You cant just come around when you want.
They need stability, Frank! But thats something you dont know about...stability. No, but you DO know about Airline pilots...dont you Frank!?
Jermaine my love, yoou'll just have to accept the fact that I don't want be with you that way anymore.
My heart belongs to an older man now.
I'm sorry. Can't we just remember the good times.
It's not you Jermaine...it's me...I've changed, that's all.
You should get on with your life, I have.
I promise I'll call soon.
All I know is that after viewing this masterpiece, I've got a powerful hankering to deep throat somebody. Damn you "artists" making me go against my normal hetro urges and, hopefully someone can help me here, what does a fag got that I don't?
stupid. juvenile, embaressing, but extrmely well drawn and designed. a true piece of fine art worthy of the major institutions. all you collectors out tere don't pass this up, it's destined for huge dollar returns!!! invest now!!!
either way ... "wouldve just said no." i dont think that i need to justify my feelings here. and i dont think that i was ever hostile towards anyone in the previous discussion (until provoked). i wish we could just lay this crap to rest already, it is really pointless and neither of us are going to change each other's minds.
i suppose you are expecting me to chime in here, as i was the most vocal about the previous posters ...
as i stated before, im not anti-sex, nor am i some crazed christian fundamentalist who feels that art should be censored. like i stated before, if it hurts then it is probably wrong. im not homosexual, so i cannot speak for homosexuals, so i would not be able to say if this image is offensive in that respect. i dont know what the band is about (maybe they are gay ... who knows).
but again, i probably would have "just said no."
there, satisfied? probably not.
ssshhhhh, TheTruth, I was trying to be diplomatic with that last comment.... :-) I had not read the disclaimer on Seri's site before.... I thought it was a glaring contradiction myself after I did, tho. Of course, I may be interpretting it wrong, eh?
If I saw this poster on the street, there's no way you'd see me at this show...cause I don't live anywhere near Virginia.
Double standard...this is more of a triple standard...a whole standard more. Contradictions are hysterical.
:lol: hmmmm, does seem a bit of a contradiction....
I am interested in hearing some more views on this, especially after the Kozik cum cutie and the Donkey Show conversations.... Bopst, this was for a Richmond show? Was it displayed in public or just in the club?
Inquiring minds want to know!! :-D
Why this didn't get poster of the week, I'll never know. Needless to say but this one provoked a serious responce when it was plastered around my hometown. People couldn't decide if the central character was commiting felitico or puking.It also made a striking t-shirt which I still own.
