ah, ah. How many times some people told me the same : work for me, for free, and you will have a lot of exposure. Always associations, clubs, firms. But at the end, you are as poor as at the beginning.

The flabby arse is less of a joke than the request. Bloody hell, the line doesn't work on the wet-behind-the-ears greenhorn and it's still always used. Without fail. It has spread in society through the ranks of people trying to find another way to ask for free shit, a memetic strain of hepatitis.

You'll get to hell and at the un-pearly gates they'll be asking if you're willing to help their arse-poking projects in exchange for exposure, I guaran-fucking-tee it.

In other news, A guy punched a hole through an £8 million Monet painting.

Thoughts?

I would suppose he would have to cough up £8 million to replace it.

Paintings (and antiques) are a safer currency than money itself, though. A painting's value is only going to rise over time.

Sign the hole and call it an art happening and hey presto - now it's worth twice as much...

Only because there are so many idiots who are willing to pay 8 mil + for a painting because it's old.

Monet would've hated the punishment. He'd probably be kind of pissed his casual painting was destroyed, but not 8 million dollars pissed.

Also, this guy so can't make good excuses.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

Money destroyed plenty of his own pieces. Granted they may have been terrible, but who knows now. I assume the painting was insured? I wonder if it can be repaired. For myself I'm just relieved that it wasn't a piece I'm fond of.

Guys, drop whatever you're working on...

We've empirically calculated how to do art.

Hey babes, I unscouted someone with a fairly large tree and I have below a list of all the people who he'd scouted, if you'd like give me a hand in picking them back up. Use your own judgement though, I haven't looked at all of them to check that they're portal worthy.

list:
@doberman
@floodwing
@subliminalvirus
@TheYoAsobi
@sedacaru
@Xtremeneox
@instantbenz
@shadow-ghost
@Zirchicken
@AgusTorena
@anroll

Thanks!

That's how the branching system works. The base of the branch gets cut off, all that was a part of that branch falls off, too.

Yeah. Often non-portal worthy artists are inclined to scout other non-portal worthy artists, so usually it works out.
