The street is full of punks. They got spikes.


I went to the opening of the Denver Art Museum’s new Frederic C. Hamilton Building over the weekend. It’s this crazy new titanium plated boat-triangle shaped thing designed by this guy Libeskind, who’s doing the new Freedom Tower in Manhattan (which will soon be the tallest building in the world only because it has a giant pole sticking out of the top of it. That’s totally cheap). The new building looks pretty baddass, especially when walking around inside of it. It’s suppose to be one of the stranger buildings in America now, but according to my art history professor last year, that architectural style was already out of fashion before construction even began, so it was fucked from the get go. What the hell? This country has a short attention span. Since when is a building made out of Titanium spikes old news? I say, more spikes! It’s funny because they finished MMoCA last April, the art museum inside Madison’s newly built Overture Center, and it too has a big defining spike.

I guess spikes are the way for former cow towns to prove that they’re real cities now. That’s cool, because in my opinion what this country needs is more art museums and more big jagged spikes. Anyway, the new modern art collection housed inside the Hamilton building was really impressive I thought, and it adds a lot to the museum because avant-garde stuff was always their weak point. But that’s all Laz’s territory. I’m sure spiked-shaped buildings went out of style like a decade ago in Sweden. Us provincial Americans, endlessly amused with pointy things...

In honor of this strange and shiny new addition to the American landscape, here are a couple of beautiful pop songs.

Libeskind actually got his design booted because Giuliani thought he owned the land when he actually didn't. After all that competition and $10 billion later the New York Port Authority realized the design was ridiculous and found his own architect. Another example of the success of blind irrational patriotism.

Art

The modern use of the word, which rose to prominence after 1750, “art” is commonly understood to be skill used to produce an aesthetic result (Hatcher, 1999). Britannica Online defines it as "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others". By any of these definitions of the word, artistic works have existed for almost as long as humankind, from early pre-historic art to contemporary art.

The purpose of art is meaningless. Therefore art lives on without use or purpose. Meaning, art will out live your stupid blog.

Drugs on the other hand have a purpose.

i fused the two and started splatter sniffing. Very artistic and purposeful.

The revolution will not be televised.

you know my name

Splatter sniffing was dismissed as "bourgeois" months ago, sucka. I didn't realize you were so blind to the streets.

Also, while I am indeed known as mazurdeathbeem and blazLmazeflake (by the chumps I rob), I am NOT dunbladekilla. That's some other dude.
