NYTimes: The Brands in Art Basel’s Orbit. Apparently I have something to say about this. Good work by Seligman
Luxury companies want to be part of the global fair not only because it draws the 1 percent, but also because visual artists “represent the intersection of intellectual activity and money,” one expert says.

Bacon @ $142.4; Koons at $58.4. My December column for ArtReview is on just what kind of assets these are: assets of fear.
The 1969 triptych, "Three Studies of Lucian Freud," sold for $142.4 million at Christie's, described as the highest price ever paid for an artwork at auction.

Lovely little animated film, but too hard to separate the 'message' from the advertised 'product' and ultimately comes off as disingenuous. Anyone who has been to a Chipotle knows its great food, but the chain simply isn't possible without the industrialized farming that the 'Scarecrow' laments throughout. I originally took to be a potential jab at Chipotle's epic colonization (welcome in my book) of the American food landscape.

Required reading. So much more than just a plea for humanities scholars to come to the table...
A plea for an intellectual truce.

An important perspective.
As more lives are destroyed by the system that creates vast amounts of wealth for the few, the more heroic it sounds to “give back.”

"A signature feature of American brainwashing today is that, as long as your product is introduced as part of a well-orchestrated public relations campaign, no one says a word against it – especially not if ‘high culture’ like ‘street art’ is involved. It’s enough to make you want to turn to the bottle yourself." — Brienne Walsh, on 'WAT-AAH! Taking Back the Streets'

The best opening paragraph of 2013: 

"One warm spring night in 2011, a young man named Travis Hughes stood on the back deck of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house at Marshall University, in West Virginia, and was struck by what seemed to him—under the influence of powerful inebriants, not least among them the clear ether of youth itself—to be an excellent idea: he would shove a bottle rocket up his ass and blast it into the sweet night air. And perhaps it was an excellent idea. What was not an excellent idea, however, was to misjudge the relative tightness of a 20-year-old sphincter and the propulsive reliability of a 20-cent bottle rocket. What followed ignition was not the bright report of a successful blastoff, but the muffled thud of fire in the hole."

Caitlin Flanagan, take a bow.
A yearlong investigation of Greek houses reveals their endemic, lurid, and sometimes tragic problems—and a sophisticated system for shifting the blame.

I'm done with Facebook. One more ad, more more inane article about tiny houses in Japan or China, one more promotion, one more update on the best year of one's inane life and how much one loves everyone and everything. It's not longer either useful or entertaining. Here's hoping Google+ can do better.
