saw new york mag’s jerry saltz top art picks of the year, and one of them was klara liden’s show at reena spaldings, where liden packed a gallery with found, discarded christmas trees and a couch on which to reflect. couldn’t stop thinking about it. from saltz’s review earlier in the year:

“When I visited, I sat down fearing grubs and bedbugs, feeling lonely, unable to see anything but the trees in front of me, cocooned, a living chrysalis. I lost my center. Ghosts of this Christmas past appeared as noticed bits of tinsel, parts of ornaments, discarded strands of stuff. I thought of lives lived around these trees, desires met and not met, parents, children, being good or bad, arguments, gifts. Time tunneled. I thought of the fields cultivated for these trees; trucks bringing them to the city; temporary street economies; the trees appearing back on the street. It recalls the late Mike Kelley’s 1987 masterpiece More Love Hours than Can Ever Be Repaid, his large hanging assemblage of plush toys and its mystic recycling system.”

oldest punks are the truest punks

“My psychiatrist tries to tell me that maybe my being depressed is just due to getting too old to be a punk, but I try not to believe that. You’re never too old to be a punk. In fact, the oldest punks are the truest punks, because being a punk when you’re a kid is easy.”

a long pause but a return with louis c.k.’s proust questionnaire:

If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?
I mean, who has time to think about shit like this? I have two kids. I have shit to do. We have to find a middle school for next year. Shit is getting real. Who has time to think about what they want to do in their next life?

Just please be fun to talk to.

What is the quality you most like in a woman?
Same. And also sex, please.

Who are your heroes in real life?
I really love Barack Obama. Sorry if that’s like “Ew. The president. That’s lame.” I love Barack Obama. What a great man. I’m so lucky to have voted for that guy.

How would you like to die?
Handcuffing myself to you and jumping into a cauldron of molten bronze.

“‘So, what’s this story going to be about?” asks [Ty] Segall, partly out of curiosity, partly just to make friendly conversation. “I’m just a normal guy, trying to work things out through song.'”
