Aug 24, 2010: Drill Baby
Drill Baby is not a real baby, it's vinyl rubber, mohair, oil paint, and plaster over an aluminum armature.

The local Art Gallery has just bought a very similar piece. I took the students to look at another exhibit yesterday. They happened to wander past one in the same style and I couldn't drag them away from it.

Sailor baby says, "I end up with a new tattoo every time I pass out around those BP guys"

Seems just a little extreme to voice your position on BP. Why a tattooed baby? Who actually thought that would be way to get their point across?

Tattoos marring the pristine flesh of a baby symbolizes oil marring the pristine environment of the Gulf.

I admit that I'm no artist. But I would have come up with something like a sea turtle crying tears of oil or something like that. But hey...that's why I'm not an artist.

There was an odd scene in The Sopranos where Ralph blackmailed a Native American by threatening to publicise the fact that that guy was actually Italian.

How pristine is the gulf with thousands of rigs in it?

Drill Baby can't compete with Oogachucka Baby.

Ah.. Thank you. At least I understand it now.
Still lame in my opinion.
Clodfobble Wednesday Aug 25 09:59 AM
Personally, I find the oil stuff irrelevant, but the baby itself creeps me right the hell out. It looks too real, and too dead.

Went to the art gallery again today. The sculpture bought by the local gallery is called Big Mother. It's a primate with highly developed mammary glands standing up and holding a baby. Like Drill Baby, the skin and hair looks completely real.

Drill baby would be cooler if it were constantly turning like a drill bit.

Is "drilled" slang for tattooed?

Big Mother looks like a Mystic from Dark Crystal.

The baby represents the Gulf of Mexico, the tattoos represent the sullying by BP. Kind of a tree hugger position, considering we've been crapping on that particular baby for hundreds of years, but that's his statement on the oil spill.
