RT @clintavo via FASO client: “A gentleman I didn’t previously know bought $23,000 worth of art from my website…sight unseen.”

Don’t call your own artwork or own event “exciting.” Be more creative (and less superlative) than that.

    pokes some much deserved fun at the uber-celebrity artist Damien Hirst. It totally nail it for me:

    #12 – The faceless miners in Sierra Leone who procured the 8,601 diamonds for Damien Hirst’s sparkling skull – they may fear for their lives every day as they work in hazardous work conditions and subsist on less than 1% of the value of a pencil in a Hirst installation, but they sleep well at night knowing that a silly sculpture that represents the pinnacle of the latest gilded age exists.
