         @MyqKaplan
         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.

    Just google “conceptual art” dude

    • MyqKaplan

      July 10, 2012 at 2:59 am

       @jerkstoresean i don’t think that googling conceptual art would be conceptual art, but i thank you for your suggestion!

      • jerkstoresean

        July 10, 2012 at 7:36 am

        @MyqKaplan Oh…….then I’m confused. Want a dollar?

      • MyqKaplan

        July 10, 2012 at 8:50 am

         @jerkstoresean  now you’re talking! PS just google whether i want a dollar, dude.

        July 10, 2012 at 9:25 am

        @MyqKaplan I did it, I think it said yes. I tweeted you photo evidence

         @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.

    • MyqKaplan

      July 10, 2012 at 8:49 am

       @Turbo_Squirbo you’re totally justified in doing that; “myq” is a pretty weird name, “Turbo_Squirbo.”

    So how many people here didn’t actually expect @MyqKaplan to personally reply to our dumb comments?

    • MyqKaplan

      July 10, 2012 at 9:53 am

       @jerkstoresean i, for one, definitely did not.

         @MyqKaplan  @jerkstoresean Wow, you’re a “celebrity!” I had no idea. Art school to comedy…talk about going from one dead end career to another. Good luck, bro!

         @elephant_droid oh, i meant ME. but i’m glad we had this miscommunication!

      • elephant_droid

        July 10, 2012 at 11:06 am

         @MyqKaplan Cool. I feel like we have connected. like yin and yang, like a human centipede.

      • MyqKaplan

        July 10, 2012 at 11:20 am

         @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.”

      • elephant_droid

        July 10, 2012 at 2:09 pm

         @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  @MyqKaplan We can build it…a series of feed tubes spliced into the esophagus of each section or IV’s.

      • MyqKaplan

        July 10, 2012 at 2:13 pm

         @DeathProof  @elephant_droid or just feed the people and then get to sewing them together (sometimes it can take hours for food to works its way through the system, so as long as they get sewed up quickly enough, it should be a self-sustaining system in no time).

        July 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm

         @MyqKaplan  @elephant_droid Myq it takes 12-48 hours…depending on the size of the meal and fat content. I swallowed a nail once, and that’s what the doctor told me.

      • MyqKaplan

        July 10, 2012 at 2:42 pm

         @DeathProof  @elephant_droid you swallowed a nail? well, i nailed a swallow. (let’s say, in a past life where i was also a swallow. and i lived so well as a swallow, nailing other swallows, that i got to be me this time around!)

    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.

    • MyqKaplan

      July 10, 2012 at 12:47 pm

       @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.

      • DeathProof

        July 10, 2012 at 1:18 pm

         @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 Now that’s some, “Highbrow Shit!”

      • MyqKaplan

        July 10, 2012 at 1:21 pm

         @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.)

      • DeathProof

        July 10, 2012 at 1:48 pm

         @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.

         @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.
