Quick Hits: Arman, Hammer and Other Paragons of Purity

(A return to the art blog fold.)

Off in France: "Chirac Pays Homage to Sculptor Arman."

Whatever one thinks of Chirac or the French, can anyone even imagine an American President making the death of any artist a matter of state business? (Anyone, for example, recall if Nancy happened to prepare a word or two for Ronnie when Warhol's fifteen minutes came up?)

Quelle différence, non?

Ehh, why the hell not? Someone needs to tell us just what's going on in this man's head:

Tom DeLay, Mugging

Para-sites got you down? Try a little paragone.

(Ahh, but maybe you were expecting something more like this? Well, then, this looks fairly interesting—though I kinda wish I could read Japanese... Anyone care to help me out? Franklin? Ritchie?)

Art? Art? Whassat?

Now we can concentrate on football and beam all our good thoughts at the Bears. Maybe I shouldn't tho, since whenever I turn on the game they fumble. Unless I'm standing on my right foot and drinking a beer. Or maybe it's my left foot. Anyway, one of them channels the energy, the other makes them fumble. More beer needed, I guess.

It's not been all that pretty, but they've gotten the job done so far in this weak, weak, weak NFC North.

1st place in the division, with the season series tie-break over their nearest competitor (and the other two teams in full-on meltdown). 3–0 against division opponents (2–0 against them on the road).

And that defense is hard to beat.
