I must remove my brain, bleach it and then boil it after seeing that.

You know what I think looks awful? Women in basketball shorts, especially when they go below the knee. It's like, geez honey. Why don't you crawl into a wife beater and crack open a Pabst to complete this trailer trash motif? Yuck. Tramp stamp imminent.

What about men in basketball shorts? Those things these days are like floaty, swirly skirts. It's horrible.

A picture of guys with chicken legs is no fair.

How about one with guys with legs like these?

It's more cross cultural borrowing.

The garb of Lawrence of Arabia is catching on here in the NBA.

One wonders how long are they going to keep them down in the Arabian Desert after they have seen nordic blondes in hot pants?

I agree about those basketball shorts - feels like I'm wearing bedsheets.

Same thing about swim trunks - so trunky.

Bring back the 80's

John Currin is such a terrible painter. It's a good gauge of the state of the art of painting that his flabbily-painted historical pastiches are considered "masterful" and "a return to technique". Balderdash.

It's a lot more than a technique problem with Currin. He makes my blood run cold.

Good Art makes you more alive. That took time off my life.
