|I've seen her around the neighborhood before, although I admit I had no idea she was a certifiable genius. Seems weird enough that one of you guys must know her. Anyway, she's clearly a marketing genius. The site, sadly, doesn't touch on her more visionary pursuits, but it does offer over a thousand pairs of elf panties for sale. Oh wait, maybe that is the work. From the site:
Unfortunately, art stardom is one of the least lucrative career paths a gal can take. Despite the fact that I'm a creative genius, I have a lot of trouble making ends meet because I'm wrapped up in my visionary artistic pursuits. Not only that, I have so many pairs of panties, I don't know what to do with them. So I thought it would be both altruistic and profitable to open up a superstore, so to speak, filled with my panties. To make matters worse I am a compulsive shopper. At last count, I had 1,172 pairs of panties, and my collection just keeps on growing. By purchasing apair of my "gently worn" panties, not only will you get to enjoy unfathomnable sensory pleasures, you will be supporting the avant-garde and contributing to the course of art history as we know it.(via. boing boing)
Oops, I should know better than to click this one at work, where we have "safesearch" installed. "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down". Even my page doesn't show up on a log search for "whipped poorwill" (should be "whip-poor-will") because it contains the word "pussy", as in pussy-willow (or maybe it was "pussy-whipped"). Oh, well, I'm pretty sure used panties means porn, not art. If you want to be an artist, fine; if you want to be an art star the hell with you.
OK, that's weird: my first comment timed out, I checked the post and it didn't show any comments, so I reposted it, at which point it appeared twice. I deleted the second instance and again the post showed no comments, although if you clicked through it was there. I then posted a note about the situation, after which the post showed two comments, so I deleted the note and, you guessed it, the post showed no comments. I guess there's still a problem with deletion.
Rev. Jen had a project room at Lauren Wittels a few years back, and used to host a poetry "anti-slam" (maybe he still does). She's funny, and may very well be an elf.
