Christie’s Auction house is scheduled to auction a Warhol self-portrait next month. It is one of 7 he painted in 1986, the year before he died and is the last of these 7 not already in a museum or foundation collection. It is estimated to sell for as much as $40 million dollars which would top the most one his self-portraits has sold for, at a modest $32.6 Million last year this time.
Apparently, a one-year, $1m offer is an act of total disrespect. The Giants, after paying this injury-prone whack job a 2-year, $19m contract, where, awesome, he played well in the World Series but didn’t play well for two seasons prior, are getting statements like:
“To play for a million dollars, I’d rather stay with my private business and share more time with my family. Thank God I’m well off financially and my money is well invested.”
Wow, we really think you should be retired now you selfish ass. You are not worth the time anymore, you are old and will play 50 games. Get over yourself.
James Burns has come up with an ingenious way to try and finally force the band Weezer to quit sucking: pay them $10 million dollars to shut up. He needs your support… In his words:
I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s.
But this isn’t about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers.
Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since “Pinkerton,” and what happens? Another pile of crap like “Beverly Hills” or “I’m Your Daddy.”
This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now.
I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year.
I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.
I’m sick of hearing about whatever this terrible (and yes, even if you like the early stuff, you should be able to admit that they are wretched now) excuse for a band is up to these days.
If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought “Pinkerton” pitch in $12, we will meet our goal.
