Which works of art influenced
you the most?
"Bliz-aard Ball Sale" by David Hammons: In New York, there's a lot of
street sellers, particularly in more of the working class neighborhoods. I'm
not sure what neighborhood exactly, but it was a place where you'd expect to
see street sellers, and (Hammons) sold beautifully constructed snowballs (as a
Anything John Waters: I love "Polyester" and "Pink Flamingos." When I
first started making art, I realized, wow, I could really make work about raunchy
stuff, and it could have a lot of meaning. The things in society that people all do,
and all know about and talk about - but it has become taboo in high culture.
"Flesh," "Trash" and "Heat" by Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol: For
very personal reasons. I grew up in the early '70s in New York - there were
junkies on the street. Their existence was a response to the crisis we were hav-
ing. I love the way Warhol and Paul Morrissey made these films (about that).
Usually you can rent these in the cult sections.
"The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe: I'm interested in the
underbelly of culture. What happens when you scratch off the veneer of cleanli-
ness? Purity. And you get to something that's really about the crust: the banal.
Fluevog Shoes: Designed in Vancouver - Fluevog shoes are very clunky
and they're very industrial, sort of a post-punk. Yeah, you should look them up
THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY
Here's hoping World War II movie fatigue hasn't set in yet, because Quentin
Tarantino is about to get his gory hands on the genre. His take on Nazi-killing
is exactly what one would expect: lots of gunfire, goofy speeches and guys with
swastika tattoos on their foreheads. And Brad Pitt in a Clark Gable mustache
screaming for Nazi skulls. This movie is going to make John Wayne turn over in
his grave - and that's a good thing.
ONLINE GAMES OF THE WEEK
A dark sorcerer must traverse a land
full of demons, platforms and a lot oflpur-
ple. The player must draw an axis and the
geometrically proficient mage will reflect
himself across it, appearing as a mirror
image on the other side. There are plenty
of tricks, from monsters that chase you to
mirrors that reflect your path. See you on
the flip side.

A relatively simple fighting game,
"Karate King" places you in a dojo
under siege by wimpy ninjas who you
have to pick up, throw, punch and kick
through a series of levels. Every so often
a challenging and gargantuan boss will
appear and you'll be forced to be careful
with your attacks, timing fast punches
with slower, stronger kicks.
