In the modern art world, largely populated by fourflushers and frauds, no one was more successful than Andy Warhol -- or more honest. "If you want to know," he said, "everything about me, just look at the surface of my paintings. It's all there. There's nothing more." To any BtB readers looking at the two "art" works in this post and wondering what their deeper meaning may be, I would say, "Forget about it. Just look at the surface. There's nothing more." Modern art is the ultimate scam. Just take a piece of junk (or anything devoid of deeper meaning), label it "art," and you, too, can be a modern "artist." Rusconi's portrait of Obama, which sold for twenty times what it's worth, is a good example. But Feiler's "Snow White" is an even better example. This "art" work is nothing more than a bumpersticker that won't fit on a bumper -- a visual statement by the self-righteous Mr. Feiler that he -- unlike the rubes who rushed to the Stockholm Museum to gawk at his "art" -- is a man of superior sensibilty and virtue. That's true of much of the detritus that passes for art these days: it's nothing more than an eye-catching way for some narcissistic "artist" to advertise that "I stand with the world's victims!" The only sensible response to any of this malarkey is: "Who cares?"

Sweden, apparently, is dead already. The first step is the rejection of Jesus Christ (there, I said it!!). And the second step is: _Swedish Youth- Evil Indoctrination_ (2:16) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuZUY6v28bw And the third step is: _Open Your Eyes, SWEDEN_ (6:28) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ6VI_bc1j4 . . . And here's one epitath (of shame, and contempt): _Goodbye Sweden, Hello Islam_ (6:22): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBGdeE3VPus Do any of you seriously think that the same thing cannot somehow happen here?
