very weird, very cool stuff.
If your mind is a bit twisted and artsy, check them out.
2003-03-24 04:05:33 PM  
well, he's not primarily a director, but anyway, for all you new york farkers or farkers visiting, at the Guggenheim you can watch all 5 Cremaster movies in order (by title, not chronological).

I wish I could join you. You can read this guy's impression of sitting through all 10 hours:
2003-03-24 04:07:27 PM  
one of these days I'll start reading the articles before posting.
2003-03-24 04:12:40 PM  
Would that be the tongue?
2003-03-24 05:24:07 PM  
The Cremaster cycle is very cool. Highly recommended. DC Farkers can sometimes see them at the Hirschorn. A girl I used to know was one of the wasp-waisted corset-girls in one of them. There's also a beautiful book available.
2003-03-24 08:10:53 PM  
Holy who cares.
2003-03-24 08:12:40 PM  
Now THAT'S a good upcoming Photoshop contest!

bad pun
2003-03-24 08:14:12 PM  
Sounds like a movie about the scrotum would be more entertaining that this pompous art student dreck.
2003-03-24 08:14:42 PM  
This is old news.
He's also dating Bjork.
2003-03-24 08:14:45 PM  
TreeSurgeon to base, TreeSurgeon to base. Repeat last headline. Did I hear that correctly? Please advise.
2003-03-24 08:14:48 PM  
It's called Helga?
2003-03-24 08:14:59 PM  
Touché Monkeyporn.
2003-03-24 08:15:49 PM  
As someone who was sold outset up on the blind date from Hell, I can tell you that the testes do in fact ascend when given the proper... stimulus.
2003-03-24 08:15:54 PM  
And just for the record...I don't want to see a movie about scrotums (scrota for the nazis?)
2003-03-24 08:17:17 PM  
ProvenItchFighter: I studied Latin and I can honestly say... I don't know. Cicero didn't talk a lot about multiple mansacks.
2003-03-24 08:19:44 PM  
Sounds like a total balls-up.

Just kidding, I'd like to see this.
2003-03-24 08:23:05 PM  
"Over the course of the Guggenheim game segment, Barney scuffles with a cheetah (his alter-ego), played by Aimee Mullins, a model who is a double amputee and a paralympic track star; wiggles through the legs of tap-dancing women wearing fluffy lamb ears (there's a reference to Freemasonry here); and scrambles through a heavy metal concert."

Best paragraph EVAR
2003-03-24 08:24:49 PM  
This isn't art student dreck this is Art
2003-03-24 08:26:56 PM  
It takes balls to make a movie like that.
2003-03-24 08:27:37 PM  
I saw one of these movies/art pieces i like it but it's tough on non-arty types.
2003-03-24 08:28:12 PM  
"his antics turn the museum into a dance hall-cum-mosh pit-cum-athletic arena."

2003-03-24 08:32:41 PM  
I saw the exhibit two weeks ago. It must have been the strangest and weirdest art I have ever seen.
2003-03-24 08:35:06 PM  
Holy shiat! What a bunch of crap! Someone has to be able to stand up and say, "The emperor has no balls!"
2003-03-24 08:36:36 PM  
I'm sure the female readers of the headline are happy to know they have been given the gift of scrotum.
2003-03-24 08:37:24 PM  
I couldn't even finish the article's first few paragraphs it was so boring and nonsensicle to me.

Then again, so is modern "art".
2003-03-24 08:38:21 PM  
Matthew Barney is one "Interesting" guy..but he gets respect because he farks Bjork
2003-03-24 08:45:18 PM  
Beauty is in the cremaster of the beholder?
2003-03-24 08:47:24 PM  

/cannot believe I did that
2003-03-24 08:51:12 PM  

Well there is that...
2003-03-24 08:58:44 PM  
true ProvenItchFighter, it is no Rambo series.
2003-03-24 08:59:51 PM  
he also asked me about my vagina when i met him.....
2003-03-24 09:10:13 PM  
Good, we'll finally know what it's called!
2003-03-24 09:12:44 PM  
Ok, who else just contracted that muscle upon reading the headline?

I know Im not the only one.
2003-03-24 09:13:16 PM  
Those films are some of the most bizarre and beautiful work i've ever seen in the medium. But he does get a fortune in grants to make them.
2003-03-24 09:19:18 PM  
I can't stand shiat like this.
If art is supposed to convey ANYTHING, be it an idea, emotion, concept, or story then it should be judged mostly on how well it conveys that subject matter. Creativity is great and all, but when the presentation becomes this confusing and convuluded, well then the artist can go fark themselves.
2003-03-24 09:19:59 PM  
"art" scares me.
2003-03-24 09:40:41 PM  
I live and breath art.
if ya don't like it, avert your eyes.
For many of us it is our air.
2003-03-24 09:45:51 PM  
It's not art unless you can sell it.
2003-03-24 09:47:33 PM  
Did anyone else notice that they mispelled the last "cremaster" to the equally funny "creamster"?
2003-03-24 09:48:25 PM  
Or that I misspelled "misspelled"?
2003-03-24 09:51:06 PM  
Mystic_fool: I hope you're joking. I really do.
2003-03-24 09:51:45 PM  
Is that what causes my sac to shift around like an amorphous blob whenever i sit down too hard while naked?

I hope that comment wasn't NSFW, because I'm seriously curious as to wtf is going on down there.
2003-03-24 09:56:29 PM  
I have a photo exhibit called "The Taint" coming out this summer.
2003-03-24 09:59:50 PM  
so now we know what the peace-loving pretentious protesters are doing in their spare time.
2003-03-24 10:02:36 PM  
Scrote-em if you got em.
2003-03-24 10:03:59 PM  
Variable = scrotum?
- or -
Pro-war people = cultureless, uncreative Philistines?

You decide.
2003-03-24 10:12:12 PM  
why would I be joking?

I am a poet, sigh, now THAT is a joke.

I ain't proud, I just write it.

You should see and hear the stuff a group I am involved in cook up...

(hint: if your in Iowa City and don't like/fear art, don't come to the Yacht Club on the second monday of each month)
2003-03-24 10:21:41 PM  
I too am a member of a guerilla art/vandalism/stupid young males group. I'm also a writer. I just can't stand it when artists seem to make being obtuse a penis size contest. A whole cultural movement was based on it and it's jsut farking old. The absurdism and the abstraction. They are good for humor, but little else. Very little else.
2003-03-24 10:29:55 PM  
Karpage - What are you talking about? The headline, article and thread are invisible to girls. Cookies and stuff.
2003-03-24 10:33:26 PM  
My wife and I saw the Cremaster exhibit last week when we went to NYC from Dallas, it was interesting/freaky. I didn't know the cat chick in the film was a double amputee. (they had her stumpies covered with fake cat-legs). Nice boobies, tho.
