New .gif of my LIFE.
Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art.
“My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.”—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (May 22, 1859—July 7, 1930; Happy birthday!)
A short video of Gaga and Katy Perry meeting for the first time in 2008.
Katy showers Gaga with compliments and then calls her “the next Madonna but better” before Gaga smiles and swiftly walks away.
OH THE SHADE.
Through a career that has included crotch-grabbing, nudity, BDSM, Marilyn Monroe fetishizing, and a 1992 book devoted to sex, Madonna has been viewed as a feminist provocateur, pushing the boundaries of acceptable femininity. But Beyoncé’s use of her body is criticized as thoughtless and without value beyond male titillation, providing a modern example of the age-old racist juxtaposition of animalistic black sexuality vs. controlled, intentional, and civilized white sexuality.

Everyone in the world suddenly thinks it’s their god-given mission to tell you what YOU should do with YOUR life. They’re quick to decide what’s the right path and what’s the wrong one; what’s a good decision, what’s a bad one.
Maybe you think what I’m doing is a bad decision. Maybe what I’m doing really is a bad decision. It doesn’t matter. I’ll fuck myself up all the way to the top, because it’s my life and I’ll live it how I want to. I’ll build it. I’ll ruin it. I’ll throw it the wolves. I’ll cradle it in my arms. I’d rather destroy my life my own way than perfect it someone else’s way.
Look at her! That’s a real actress!
Bette Davis gifs exist?!?! Oh man, the world just got so much better.
