!! 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!

!! OMG, feeling generous? Help The Berlin-Set Gay Feature Film ‘M / M’ Get Made This Fall !!


M / M is a feature-length, experimental, narrative film set in Berlin, Germany and written and directed by Drew Lint. A bit about M / M:

Matthew is a Canadian new to Berlin. He’s come to escape from himself, make a fresh start. When he meets Matthias, he finds what he’s been looking for. Matthias is the new Matthew. Consciously or unconsciously, Matthew begins to take over Matthias’ identity. He cuts his hair, gets a tattoo, buys new clothes. When Matthias gets into a motorcycle accident, the opportunity is too perfect. Matthew is Matthias. In his coma, Matthias’ dreams and memories blur together, merging with the reality happening outside. Interior becomes exterior. Where the real ends and the artificial begins is a puzzle for all parties involved.

YUSS! I always look forward to a single-white-female vibe, especially when paired with fit German lads! The crew is looking for support in helping them reach their funding goal so they can complete the film this fall. Head over to their Indie-Go-go page where you can contribute to an awesome project and in-turn take home a piece of the production. Check out their teaser trailer above!

It’s been a big week for Warholian discoveries! First the discovery of new Warhol works via old Amiga floppy disks, and now the very last Andy Warhol time capsule will be opened up on Thursday.
What do you think will be in the next Warhol time capsule? I’d turn up just to watch John Waters crack that baby open!
