Saint Patrick’s Day Advice

It is Saint Patrick’s Day next week.

The Yearly Bacchanal is not a time for introspection but perhaps, this year, it’s time to slow down a little.

I am probably just getting old. Don’t mind me, I am just an decrepit man with not much time left.

Even so, here, below, are some ideas and some thoughts.

Cheers!

Then look no further than these stylish spandex pantaloons.

Ignore the tears of your fellow yogis. They are tears of jealousy.

Culture of Illusion – Fifty/Fifty


Somewhere nearby there is a store that sells only left shoes…

Culture of Illusion – Gloriously Weird.


One of my favourite sites to peruse is Open Culture.

This video popped up today.

It makes no sense to me but it makes no sense in a lovely distracting way.

There is always something to love about Yoko Ono and this is just one more thing. The fact that what this video really is is a commercial for a new range of clothing from Open Ceremony is, I think, probably forgiveable. It is forgiveable isn’t it?

Oh no, wait, in the course of typing I have changed my mind. What we have here is another sandwich board. Why must they always be sandwich boards? I suppose artists need to live and eat and pay mortgages too.

And yet…

Yet maybe there is more to the all too common Company/Artist relationship this time. The designs are so odd perhaps they are subversive. Maybe Yoko Ono is having the last laugh. Maybe she is making unwearable anti-style clothing and taking the money and running off to do some more wonderful and infuriating performance art.

This may be a big fuck you to fashion, to men, to women, to commerce, to herself.

Or it may just be exactly what it looks like – an artist being employed by a company to express an idea through a medium that, generally, reeks of commerce and compromise.

I especially love the hand prints on the crotch region.

I would not look good in this.

All art is pornography. Someone very clever once said that somewhere once…

That is all I have to say about this thing.

What a great world we live in.

Appetite for Distraction – self-hating hipster. The worst kind of hipster.


Appetite for Distraction - self-aware.

This t-shirt is not a real t-shirt but if it were a real t-shirt I suspect that hipsters would love it.
