Bush Monkeys

Post by mtmynd » December 15th, 2004, 12:31 pm

Reuters/New York - A portrait of President George W. Bush using monkeys to form his image has led to the closure of a New York art exhibition over the weekend and anguished protests over freedom of expression.

"'Bush Monkeys', a small acrylic on canvas by Chris Savido, created the stir at the Chelsea Market public space, leading the market's managers to close down the 60-piece show that was scheduled to stay up for the next month."

Is it getting kind of tight in here or is my mind just monkeying around?

Judih got eyes

let me set the right mood
just to be a devils advocate
Weimar Republic, Germany the nineteen twenties
when idiots like me thought what a pity, there was a chance for a socialist peaceful pacifist Germany. Now I think about a book Life Against Death and my neigh eve a tay. World War One was not over it was just an intermission to grow another generation of cannon fodder. Bob this is spontaneosu don't mean nothing, just the reason why I was certified back in sixty four.

ten four on the genetic stupidity
I been thinking about getting my circucision reversed.
But seriously not to sound like a conspriacy nut but some of these preachers got me worried.
Barry Goldwater with the ants in his pants was a crazy old fool like me but I dug him for one thing he said:
"If one more preacher tries to tell me how to vote I am going to kick his ass"

I just remembered that this was cecil's post, Maybe I should say "Hi Jack"

I was just trying to see it from sister judih's eyes. Not to ramble but I had an interesting link to something called 'The Phenomenology Of Female Spatiality" can't find it anymore defunct web site.

So anyway I forgot it was Cecil's post,
I wonder if they will hassle that artist, find out he has torn the tags off his mattress or maybe copied a movie, something tha would be interesting to the FBI?

Thanks for posting that mtmynd
I agree wiht judih that it is
"To see that something like this can happen, especially in a place like New York City is mind boggling and scary."
Bob I don't always see eye to eye with judih, she is a Zionist something I can never be, goes back to that genetic stupity thing. But "everybody has to be someplace"

the good news is that the thing will probably auction for a gazillion bucks and the money will go towards protecting free speach

yah, i read about that!!!! I think it was highly creative, not to mention pretty accurate... although admittedly, I'd have done him up w/little pieces of turds so everyone would know he's full of shit.
