Overheard at the frenzied Bay Area Now opening last night:

Cool, it’s like a two-headed monster colander.

It’s about time we saw some reality in a museum. These photos are what it really looks like, finally.

Wow…it’s always weird to see someone who’s anorexic.

Man, I love me some low art that’s masquerading as high art.

Was that guy wearing an eye patch before?

It’s like an alternative reality, you know. Like his own particular way of decoding the world.

Bear skin rug vest behind you.

This is fucking full circle, you know what I mean?

Are you trying to listen to what we’re talking about?
