A. Bear Readers Meet Two Jasperjohns, Two Jasperjohns Meet A. Bear Readers

by Accidental Bear

I will be talking with these two delightful, white pants wearing, bear talk lovin’, intellectual buckets of love juice soon for a full interview, so hold your breath because your cerebral cortex will be overly stimulated. Thanks and you’re welcome. Check these guys out on Tumblr in the mean time.

ABOUT:

Hello friends! I’m a newborn TV show about two quirky brothers trying to quirk their way out of… I don’t know what I’m saying. It’s not my job to keep track of what this show is about, or who is in it or whether CAA has called today because not only have they haven’t but again it’s not my job to know any of this. I’M NOT A MARKETING DEPARTMENT! I’m just a TV show.

But I would love it if you could email me at twojasperjohns@gmail.com

Scooter Laforge Releases First Published Survey; “QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED”

by Accidental Bear




For the first day of summer in New York, Scooter LaForge is offering the FIRST PUBLISHED SURVEY of his work.  This book of images will feature all of the sexy trash and trashy sex that has quickly made this artist a legend.  Highlights include celebrity collaborations, paintings and some of his iconic fashions, and it will be a limited edition print so be sure to get yours while supplies last.  Editions go on sale during opening night of “
QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED.”  This show will open in conjunction with New York’s Gay Pride, and continue for 2 months, offering the public a rare glimpse of work as well as the opportunity to purchase this rare offering.  This show, focusing on the queer aspects of his work, ties in with a legacy that has seen Scooter LaForge rise from San Fransisco notable, even designing the 2010 Castro Street Fair logo, to an enticing artist who is decidedly one to watch.  With 20 paintings, sculptures, and drawings under one roof for the first time ever, “QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED” will be a full-throttle glimpse into his highly charged world.

The price for the book is $60 or $100 for a book with a tee shirt!!!! xxoxoox

Ever Thought How Odd Your Online Life Is? Rib-tickling Funny Video

by Accidental Bear

Making fun of ourselves is fun, especially when it’s clever.

This Is Funny, You Should Watch It of the Day: To promote Nico Muhly’sTwo Boys — “a new opera that lifts the lid on the dangers of living our lives online” — the English National Opera sent out an actor to perform familiar Facebook and Twitter actions IRL.

Unfriendilarity ensues.

Bonus: Why he went into John Snow holding a sign saying he was “interested in men.”
