Man, for my "art project" everyone send me money for beer and chicken wings so I can eat them. Then, I'll take a crap and photograph it. Just for you! The more you send, the more I crap. I'll create a website where you can rate the turd you've helped make and compare it to other turds that have been sponsored. I'll offer autographed 8" x 10" glossy photos suitable for framing of me posing with your turd. I'll give the thumbs up for an extra $1. For $5 you can upgrade to the peace sign, and for $10 you can get the deluxe package... I'll actually box up your turd and mail it to you or another person of your choosing.
@DeathProof is there a vegan option? if you can do a soy option, i'll take one deluxe version please. i haven't yet decided who i will have you send it to, but i think ten dollars of the money i raise will be put to good use funding your project. so go for it, put my money where your ass is.
@MyqKaplan Not quite...There's DaDa DuDu option for a cool $10,000 where I stuff a horse, with baby cow, a turkey, a suckling pig, a chicken, duck sausage, foie gras, bacon and 13 unlucky hamsters. I eat that, take a crap, into Duchapm's Fountain. Then, several notable and blindfolded vegans will take turns sampling the mess with a gold plated spatula to see if they can tell the difference between shit and soy based alternatives.
@MyqKaplan And, yes...I'm a bit of a critic. So I apologize. I'm an old school graffiti artist myself. My specialty was the peace sign, just the word, 'The Who", the backwards swasticker, I'd draw the road runner, just the word, "The Who", "Repent 13", and those types of things.
@MyqKaplan Like all vegans...so narrow minded. Now you are the one trying to determine what is and isn't art. By the way, why is it that vegans can never seem to find the shift key...probably too busy using one hand to pat themselves on the back. Good luck with your art project. It's sophomoric. You're ripping off Duchamp who did the whole "letter as art" bit oh say +60 years ago. Way to be current. Maybe you can do silk screen prints of Annie's Naturals Vegan Gluten-free Soup cans next. Actually, that might be kind of interesting.
@DeathProof no thanks! sounds pretty fancy, but also counter to many things that i believe in. good luck to you though! (not in this, but other things.)
@MyqKaplan Now that's some, "Highbrow Shit!"
@elephant_droid Elephant Droid Hunt. #ProfessionalComedian
@MyqKaplan Actually I am a comic, not a comedian. So there.
@MyqKaplan I've never seen them either but seen enough from the trailer. I also thought about the circular-pede, but then there is no way to get anything in the front end. A big part of the plot is the continuous digestive tract and the role of excrement passage.
@elephant_droid same here! PS i've never seen the human centipede movies, but do they ever do one where the front person connects to the back person, so everyone is equal? if not, dibs on "moebius centipede" or "infinitipede."
@MyqKaplan Cool. I feel like we have connected. like yin and yang, like a human centipede.
@elephant_droid oh, i meant ME. but i'm glad we had this miscommunication!
@Turbo_Squirbo you're totally justified in doing that; "myq" is a pretty weird name, "Turbo_Squirbo."
@jerkstoresean i don't think that googling conceptual art would be conceptual art, but i thank you for your suggestion!
@jerkstoresean i have seen it! the world wide web is collapsing onto itself. pretty soon we might only have the actual wide world left. which also has webs in it, so we're fine i think.
@jerkstoresean now you're talking! PS just google whether i want a dollar, dude.
@Narc Zito spoiler alert: i'm not sure i understand what you mean, but i sincerely appreciate your offer of help.
@galactictraveler sounds good! can you tell me where to reach this midnight rider? or am i too late because midnight is now in the past?

@Toin Coss a fair assessment from the artsy coin toss.
I'm Having a crisis of What is Art. I saw An Original Jackson Pollack at MOMA recently and I could Swear after painting my bedroom the Drop Cloth could have been called a forgery.
@Toin Coss i think that's a pretty common reaction to pollack's work, and i would encourage you to go ahead and try to sell that drop cloth, and see what the experts think. if people whose job it is to spot forgeries can't tell the difference, than you may have proved all of art a sham. which sounds like a very worthy art project.
