YAASSS! Artist Cory Arcangel (and man who helped to recently dig up some long-lost Warhol art on some old floppy disks) has a new book out! Working On My Novel is a carefully-curated collection of Tweets, all of which contain the phrase “working on my novel.”

“[The book] is about the act of creation and the gap between the different ways we express ourselves today. Exploring the extremes of making art, from satisfaction and even euphoria to those days or nights when nothing will come, it’s the story of what it means to be a creative person, and why we keep on trying.”

Procrastination is suiting content for a great coffee table book, and what better source to draw from than from Twitter?? You can pre-order the the book HERE.

Canadian writer/filmmaker and queer cult fixture Bruce LaBruce has debuted his very own fragrance!
The perfume (appropriately titled Obscenity) is apparently is a combination of “Ancient and biblical essential oils combined with drops of the healing water from Lourdes create this obscene moment of in fragrance delicto.”

Here is the commercial I directed in Hamburg to promote my new fragrance, Obscenity. It features Katja-Inga Boldowski and Dwayne Strike. Music by La Jovenc. The bottle cap was designed in collaboration with jeweller Jonathan Johnson, and the eau de parfum was developed in collaboration with perfumer Kim Weisswange.

Check out the commercial below and you can purchase a bottle of Bruce‘s potent new smell HERE today!

!! OMG, from the utterly TACK! files: Charles Saatchi sells painting of himself strangling Nigella Lawson !!

1080646.jpg
Charles Saatchi, the British advertising tycoon who received a police caution for choking out his wife Nigella Lawson in public at Scott’s restaurant in London — has decided to re-write the book of absolute class and gentlemanly-ness by selling a painting of the incident for £10,000!

SaatchiArt.com, which is closely connected to his gallery in London, is selling the artworks at prices ranging from £150 into thousands.
Anyone can upload their work to receive 70 per cent of the asking price, while the site receives 30 per cent commission. Mr Saatchi stands to gain from the sale of the works, as he is a minority shareholder in Saatchi Art.
“Would it have been a better story if I had censored artists whose work might be personally disobliging?” Saatchi told the Mail on Sunday.
The chief curator of SaatchiArt, Rebecca Wilson, said it did not believe in censorship unless the material is “pornographic or incites racial hatred”. Violence against women, on the other hand? Totally cool.

Becca! GURL! You know, sometimes art people really need to take the coke spoons out of their noses and remember that certain shit just ain’t cute!
