A few nights ago, a Brooklyn club hosted the Raw art party I wrote about here. Naturally, any art show is a magnet for the weird and fantastic. I met a lot of artists and saw and heard a lot of wonderful things, but I cannot possibly recount all of it, or this article would go on for-fucking-ever. Allow me to give you a hazy and incomplete rundown of the evening’s events, from the perspective of a sweaty fedora-wearing non-artist who can barely keep her eyes awake.
The IT Crowd came highly recommended to me from a number of people, most notably Doug of Doug’s TV Reviews, as well as Communies of many sorts. This cultishly classic Britcom launched the careers of the very adorable Chris O’Dowd and Richard Ayoade. It appears to be somewhat iconic among nerdfolk for its representation of wacky computer supporters. Here’s my problem with it: it sucks.
I’ll be fair and say that most of this article isn’t about House of Cards, but Zoe Barnes made an impression on me. This article is about collecting stuff and selling it.
Look up. No, on the page, at the top, above Femme Fawkes. See that piece of art that looks vaguely like the top half of a head, with all those squiggly swirly things and intersecting lines with bits of color? That is my head, and the name of that art piece is called Internet Killed the Video Star, done by the incomparable vodkinista artiste Theresa E. Theresa E has a show in Brooklyn on Saturday June 19th: RAW presents KALEIDOSCOPE. Let me tell you why you are going to buy a ticket and come to the show.
But, Arrested Development season four was kind of doomed from the start.
