!! OMG, move over Marina: Remember when The Joker was a Contemporary Artist? !!

joker-batman-art.gif
Lately, it seems that every face in the music game has been trying to break into the art world by collaborating with artist Marina Abramović, and every Marina Abramović in the art game has been trying to collaborate with… well, you get the point.
But before our Serbian art guru was punking popstars & hip-hop bitches by selling them her presence, before Banksy was evading cops around the world, and before Rothkos were being defaced in broad-daylight, there was someone else who was bringing the jokes. It was THE JOKER.
47 years ago, “Pop Goes The Joker,” aired on the original Batman series starring Adam West and Cesar Romero, and the similarities between some of the shit going down today are uncanny! From HyperAlleric:

The episode depicts Gotham’s “art world” and opens with a scene in which the Joker enters a rather proper art gallery and sprays paint all over a series of priceless works, which are later praised as an act of artistic genius (which only goes to show even Yellowism is not original).
Afterwards, the Joker enters an art contest and is pitted against artists with somewhat familiar names, including Pablo Pincus, Jackson Potluck, Leonardo Davinski, and Vincent van Goache. After winning the contest by applying a single dot of purple paint onto a canvas the Joker decides to open up an art academy of his own to teach his students “the secrets of Modern art.” This is of course a plot, it is The Joker after all, in which one of Batman’s archenemies only accepts extremely wealthy citizens as his students in hopes to gain access to their money.

The Joker also brought the grade-A art snobbery with some fine quotes like:

“This is an outrage, an outrage against art, an insult I say!”
“Look at that, you call that art?”
“…these uncultured boobs have no appreciation for fine art.”
“We artists are not required to be nice, but only talented!”
“Handle them carefully boys, there’s ten million under those blankets.”

!! OMG, will they finally leave that jail?: The Walking Dead Season 4 Teaser “Found It’s Way In” !!


I was super into the first and second seasons of The Walking Dead. I thought the character relationships and dynamics were strong, and it wasn’t so much about the zombies all the time.
Season 3 kind of lost me. It felt a bit redundant, became soap-opera-y, and The Governor never really felt intimidating — so I’m hoping Season 4 pulls it together, and they get the shit out of that bad jail set!
Check out the new trailer for Season 4 above! Are you excited for the return of The Walking Dead? Or can True Blood and The Walking Dead just RIP already?

!! OMG, YASSSS!: First teaser for Lifetime’s ‘House Of Versace’ starring Gina Gershon !!

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 1.00.35 PM.png
First Lohan as Liz Taylor, then an Anna Nicole Smith “biopic”, — now this! I think the Lifetime Network has finally realized that if you’re going to produce some campy shit (knowingly or unknowingly), that you may as well embrace it!
This teaser (which looks like it was pieced together from Heidi Klum‘s Project Runway cutting room floor scraps) for House Of Versace is beating the humps out of my hump day, and I have a feeling my friends are already scurrying to create new drinking games. Lifetime has fully committed to that ridiculousness, and it seems like Gina Gershon is in on the joke too.
Check out the first teaser video after the JUMP!

!! OMG, he’s naked (again): ’50 Shades Of Grey’ star Charlie Hunnam in ‘Sons of Anarchy’ !!

So, apparently there’s a lot of uproar and outrage about the casting choices for this 50 Shades Of Grey movie mess. Personally, I don’t understand how you can go wrong by casting a member of Don Johnson aka Detective James Crockett’s family, and Charlie Dunnam doesn’t seem too bad either.
Check out Charlie naked on Season 6 of FX‘s super macho-guy show, Sons Of Anarchy (again) after the JUMP:

!! OMG, Patrick Batemen is back: FX to develop new ‘American Pyscho’ sequel series !!

tumblr_mf7bfqfNGM1rcdc3lo1_500.jpg
FX is such a patriotic network. First they have huge success with the last two seasons of American Horror Story , and now it seems the network is set to “buy-American” again by developing a new American Psycho sequel-series. From deadline:

Described as an update of American Psycho, the drama series fast-forwards from the late 1980s, when the movie was set, to present day. It will feature serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, taking on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next-generation American Psycho. The project will be written by Paradigm-repped Jaworski who will executive produce with Shearmur and Ed Pressman. The project originated at Allison Shearmur Prods where it was shepherded by Stephen Meinen.

Who would you like to see reprise Christian Bale‘s role as the new Patrick Batemen? Scott Disick from Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Maybe Ben Affleck? Will you watch a series about a 55 year old man who murders people?
