Interactive = Gay?

The current show at the Minnesota Museum of American Art is called “Interact/React” and includes the work of Creative Electric strongman Karl Raschke. Usually we refuse to interact with Art, preferring to ignore it while we drink the copious amounts of free red wine that are the real draw at openings. But this is art you can play with. Plus, you’ll want to see for yourself whether Strib scribe Mary Abbe correctly judged the work of one artist as “excessively fey.” It’s true, Mary: Art is sooo gaaayyy!


24, Minus Keifer

Between 9:00 a.m. April 23 and 9:30 a.m. April 24, 2005, 24 hour comic day went down at Big Brains Comics. Considering the difficulty I have in creating one blog post every 24 days, I find it amazing that several local comic book artists each created a 24-page comic book in 24 hours.


Pyramid Scheme

Minneapolis couple mocks new food pyramid” sounds promising on many levels: Food! Mockery! Minneapolis! Alas, what a letdown. I’m a soy-lovin’, Wedge-shoppin’ freak, but this couple’s attempt at mockery goes down like a stale vegan cupcake.


Natural Born Garbage

Not that you have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting in unless you bought tickets the day they went on sale, but Garbage will be at First Ave tonight. No tickets? Aw, that’s too bad. I guess you’ll have to go see Juliette & The Licks at the Triple Rock instead. No faith in Juliette Lewis‘ ability to make good music? Me neither, after watching the videos. Go ahead, click the link. See how long it takes you to shake the image of her singing “it’s a mad, mad wooooorld” while writhing around in that spandex-and-kneepad roller derby getup.


Show Us Your ***** Ranch

Guess which member of the local media is posting hot pics of herself to her blog? No silly, not CJ — it’s Diablo Cody! Okay, okay, CityPages.com, we get the point — we’ll never get your traffic numbers. But you don’t need to rub it in like this. On an even less serious note, what would it take to get other members of the local media to post pics of themselves? C’mon Lileks, get those ghastly flowers off The Bleat — let’s see some skin. In the comments, tell us which media personality you would like to see just a bit more of.
