What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is the Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…


Listening to…


First the Manolo announces that with the arrival of the summer, he has commenced working on his summer reading list. And it is off to the good start with the very enjoyable Ivy Briefs, written by the Manolo’s internet friend the Martha Kimes, who blogs at The Random Muse. The Ivy Briefs is quite funny, and certain to be enjoyed by anyone who has endured either the law school or the lawyer. In the other words, it could be enjoyed by anyone.

Secondly, the Manolo has been dipping into the Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle, with the predictably hilarious results; to wit, for each stunning and arresting visual image, the viewer is forced to endure 27 minutes of solipsistic, Matthew-Barney-based tedium.

Thus the best way to watch even the smallest amount of the Cremaster Cycle is with the thumb firmly placed on the fast-forward button, zipping ahead to those few moments that are actually worth the watching.

“Yes, Manolo, but is it art?”

In the word: “Meh”.

    Urgh. I was an art major in college, and I had to endure the Cremaster Cycle for a class. Though I did get a major laugh out of the sparkly Playboy lettering used in the video.
