So he's a dick, which isn't terribly shocking to find an art student with issues. At least he only raised a little furor
 
2014-04-16 10:28:10 AM
I eagerly anticipate his next piece: "Douchecanoe Held In Solitary So He's Not Killed With Haammah"
 
2014-04-16 10:47:21 AM
He's not connected to Westboro Baptist Church, so let the Rains of Castamere begin.
 
2014-04-16 10:50:40 AM
So next time I commit a crime I'm just gonna say 'chill folks I wasn't drinking and driving it was performance art.'

I guess extorting a ransom isn't a bad way to pay off your student loans.

TFA is light on details about his hoax, and I seem to have missed the original thread.  Was it a reasonably credible hoax, or more of a Lite Brite incident?
 
2014-04-16 11:06:56 AM
It's Art

And it's not even original ...
 
2014-04-16 11:10:57 AM
Next you will say he has mental health problems
 
2014-04-16 11:11:48 AM
So taking him out back and putting a couple of rounds in his shins would be considered a critique, right?
 
2014-04-16 11:11:49 AM
Performance artist?  Is that some other definition of "insensative asshole" that I was previously unaware of?
 
2014-04-16 11:12:30 AM
I woke up this morning and the sun was gone.
 
2014-04-16 11:12:50 AM
just throw him in jail and forget about him. anything else will give him what he wants. attention.

He set down a backpack with a rice cooker in it.
Personally I think it's stupid that the cops determined the stupid thing wasn't a bomb and then destroyed it anyway. If it had just been a backpack filled with textbooks would they destroy that just for being a backpack too?
/not all backpacks are like that

Let's not forget "Sodahmized Until He Prolahpses".
 
2014-04-16 11:15:20 AM
His next performance will be as Inmate #273571 at the Massachusetts Correctional Facility - Framingham.
 
2014-04-16 11:16:28 AM
Bubba in cell block C will be doing some performance art on the kid's sphincter in the very near future
 
2014-04-16 11:17:47 AM
"artist". another word for unemployed bored person.
 
2014-04-16 11:18:09 AM
Oh, he did it because he wants exposure?  We'll we'd better link to his videos, then.  Surely no one else will do something similar to get more views on YouTube.
 
2014-04-16 11:18:36 AM
Seeing as there was no actual bomb, bravo asshole artist guy. Boston PD earned a couple of good swift tail yanks. Grab yourself a beer whenever they let you out.

Nah. Too many guys willing to give it away.
 
2014-04-16 11:19:08 AM
I was pretty entertained by his performance. I suspect he'll be pretty entertained by the prisoners who want to perform with his rectum in prison someday in the near future.
 
2014-04-16 11:20:00 AM
he's not even good at performance art, which is probably why he's also a dumbass
 
2014-04-16 11:20:10 AM
Is what he did actually illegal?
 
2014-04-16 11:20:12 AM
Everyone in politics is a performance artist.  You can't read an Ann Coulter column and tell me that isn't performance art.
 
2014-04-16 11:20:22 AM
He should get a job with WTFark!

Including Kevin Edson, most likely.

I think the proper title is:
"Human butter churn, with Brothers"

wasn't the rice cooker filled with confetti (I assume so that when it "explodes", paper will get into everyone's wounds too)? I think that may be the "art" portion, as well as the potential threat, since the cops have no idea what's in the rice cooker or what's under the confetti?"

Really it's profiling to consider all backpacks like that.
Profiling is wrong.
 
2014-04-16 11:21:34 AM
Christ, what an asshole.

meat0918: Is what he did actually illegal?


IANAL, but deliberately doing something that was known to have caused a few deaths, a number of catastrophic injuries, and several hundred other lesser injuries on the anniversary of the incident causing those casualties could be argued as an attempt to incite panic.

What a little furor may look like.
 
2014-04-16 11:23:00 AM
expedite him to Texas we'll take care of him for u libs
 
2014-04-16 11:23:51 AM
Too bad the backpacks weren't strapped to this attention whore's back when the bomb squad blowed them up.

Speaking of performance art.

Was it a black backpack?
 
2014-04-16 11:24:57 AM
This guy is the perfect example for why we need to bring back both shame and the stocks back to society.  I'll even compromise and allow for mental health exams prior to such a sentence, where those folks can then get legitmate help.
 
2014-04-16 11:25:06 AM
Maybe at his trial, the judge will remind him that there's a difference between performance art and being a moronic jackass. Hopefully right before some 'performance art' where he's sentenced to a few years in jail.

\Being a smarmy hipster should be a capital offense.
 
2014-04-16 11:25:15 AM
They should just let him go...at  37,000 feet.
 
2014-04-16 11:25:50 AM
He needs to start using that special French spelling of performance artist: D-O-U-C-H-E.
 
2014-04-16 11:26:59 AM
Performance artist, mentally ill douchebag... wait, there's a difference?
 
2014-04-16 11:27:10 AM
Everyone knows Boston has no sense of humor:

He's perfectly normal.

Ladies and Gentlemen, for my next performance, I ask to cast your eyes upon the large man in an orange jumpsuit seated on the bunk above me. Believe it or not, my assistant, Tiny, will remove his orange jumpsuit then insert the entirety of his ample manhood inside my rectum while I whimper and try not to shout out for a guard.

One more thing, ladies and gentlemen, before we get started. Please kill me.

There's a link in TFA.

he only had a backpack with a cooking device.  It is his constitutional right to own a cooking device.  And he has freedom to express himself!  He's a Texas hero!
Oh...reading further, he's a bipolar transvestite without the mental capacity to determine right from wrong.  Nevermind.  You'd execute him.  Carry on.
 
2014-04-16 11:29:51 AM
talk about false arrest
 
2014-04-16 11:31:10 AM
I always think of JJ from Doonesbury when someone mentions "Performance Art" - Kinda NSFW

Wellon Dowd: His next performance will be as Inmate #273571 at the Massachusetts Correctional Facility - Framingham.


Where he'll be performing a crying blowjob on a white supremacist.
