Swimming with the Razorfishes

Thursday, January 17, 2008


So I went to an opening tonight. Some bunch of conceptual artists.

I'm wandering around, trying to understand why an artist would do a show full of photos of other people's photos, when I look to my left and notice...Bob Vila! I'm standing in a gallery, admiring photos next to Bob Vila. Host of This Old House. Sears spokesperson. Robert J. Vila!

And not just any photos. A room full of Robert Mapplethorpe.

Just me, giant veiny phalluses, and Bob Fucking Vila.

It was one of those wonderful moments that New York City makes possible.
