Beautiful Inside My Head Forever

I think I've had a brainwave . . . going back to the Damien Hirst auction . . . the 'art' was the auction itself . . . not the stuffed animals and bits of bling that were being sold. It may have been performance art after all . . . ?

Well, there are worse ways of making £100m, Damien's way was artful. Just wish I'd thought of it first.

Yeah, but it doesn't make Damien Hurst any less of a cunt.

LOL!!!!

Damien Hirst makes 111 million pounds selling crap. How does he do it? A zebra in a tank of formaldehyde however did not sell. I wonder why not? lol

scarlet-blue said...

I think it was Andy Warhol who said: 'Art is what you can get away with.' . . . and Damien did . . . and they/we let him. Cheeky bugger.

I would call that artifice rather than art, Miss Scarlet. I wonder when he'll get round to bottling his own farts and selling them? My are available in the Congo for less than the price of Chanel No.5.

Fuckwits.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Sorry.

Mrs P !!!!!

And Mr Bananas . . . tut.

I've got a new line for artist Damien - his own bottled piss.

I really shouldn't be putting any ideas into his head should I?

BTW, the medicine cabinet that he wrenched off his bathroom wall and stuck in an art gallery was a belter wasn't it?

scarlet-blue said...

Sadly Mr Berkeley Hunt this piss and shit stuff has all been done before . . . way back in 1961 . . . by Piero Manzoni.
Piss and shit with a bit of bling thrown in might just work though!

Thanks for the info. Not being an arts grad, that sort of things eludes me.

He'd just write on the bottle "Damien - Piss Artist", and they'd fly off the shelves.

scarlet-blue said...

I think Damien is more of a piss taker . . . .
It's a rum old world, isn't it?

the beast of berkeley hunt said...

"It's a rum old world, isn't it?"

I'd prefer a single malt.

scarlet-blue said...

So would I . . .

Kevin Musgrove said...

Picking up an earlier thread: Damien could market his own gala pies and Scotch eggs.

Sorry!

the beast of berkeley hunt said...

Kevin.

If you know the secret of how they make the egg run right through the middle of those gala pies you're on a winner mate.

scarlet-blue said...

I am going to open a pie shop, there is nothing else for it. I will also keep chickens out the back. I have been inspired . . . a new career beckons . . .

I found a Damien Hirst in a skip. I burnt it...

scarlet-blue said...

Yes, but would you like a pie and a bag of chips . . . or a scotch egg?

john prescott said...

Who said pies?

BEAST said...

Oh dear , do I detect mountains of sour grapes from your commentors Miss Scarlet . I am with you , its cheeky and fabulous , more power to the man :-)

I've got some very provocative pickled gherkins if anyone's interested in buying them? I must warn you for health and safety reasons that they are past the sell-by date but nonetheless intriguingly packaged

scarlet-blue said...

Indeed Beast, there is a mountain of sour grapes . . . and now Wendy has brought gherkins to the mix . . . It is getting more crowded than an aisle in Asda.

Wendy, take the gherkins to Mrs P . . . for some reason she's having them hard!

scarlet-blue said...

Sorry Mr Prescott, I didn't see you there . . . Please take a seat; there is a veritable feast to be had here, but no sneaking off to the loo afterwards.

Kevin Musgrove said...

"How," with Fred Dineage once showed us how they get the egg all the way through the pie. I was so horribly disappointed with such a prosaic explanation that I've decided to forget how to do it.

scarlet-blue said...

How is it done then Kev? I think you should remember . . . I will go and look it up . . .

john prescott said...

£20.00 and the secret's yours.

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Mr Prescott; Do you know how to use a vacuum?
Make it a tenner . . .

john prescott said...

Dear Miss Scarlet, I am a fookin' vacuum.

£17.50 last offer.
