“I’LL CRY WHEN I’M DONE KILLING” BY MAGNUS GJOEN

Magnus Gjoen brings a touch of punk- sensibility to the art tradition. His fashion background infuses Magnus’ art, re-thinking old concepts and re-interpreting them for the contemporary climate. Working to shed new light on past treasures, Magnus’ prints alters the relationships between the viewer and the preconceived notions of objects; something which is ostensibly powerful and destructive is transfigured into beautiful and fragile objects of art, be it weapons, animals or the human race itself.

His digital works make us look twice to grasp their meaning. Gjoen’s unique style of juxtaposing themes of religion, war, beauty, and destruction in his art bring us to also question their correlation.

Weakness Wednesday: R.E.M. “Drive”

There was R.E.M. pre-”Losing My Religion, R.E.M. post-”Losing My Religon.” And this was the beginning of the new beginning, when one of the biggest and most influential indie-bands ever began their career as one of the biggest bands in the world. And this was the opening statement. It was 1992, and Automatic For the People was perhaps their darkest, and ultimate artistic statement.

And then… there was Bruce Bacca

Posted from The Citrus Report

Alexander Tarrant has been on this site before, hell, he contributes amazing things to this site all the time. And now he is starting a religion, the religion of Bruce Bacca.

riday December 10th at 7pm marks the opening of the Bruce Bacca Pop-Up Church at 248 Fillmore St., San Francisco.

Like the earth itself, it took 7 days to construct this church and it’s vague system of beliefs based on the 1988 film Die Hard, it’s mythical leading man Bruce Willis, and an exquisitely carved wooden Chewbacca Mask.

Churchgoers will want to bring their cameras to capture the moment they walk the carpeted broken glass gauntlet, wear the wooden mask, and become an indoctrinated member of this temporary system of worship.

Following the dry baptism, available for $10 is the short(er) film “Incident at Nakatomi” – a pious remastering of the classic film Die Hard (1988) in which the image and voice of Bruce Willis has been completely removed. The resulting film is introspective and thought provoking, yet still contains enough explosive excitement to keep even the most discerning action fan satisfied.

The church will be open from December 10th – 26th, and will be performing the civic duty of holding a soup kitchen on Christmas Day.

Mosque Protests and Quran Burning’s, America has healthy coping mechanisms

Posted from The Citrus Report

On September 11th, 2010 a proud part of us at The Citrus Report is going to pour our morning coffee and watch news coverage of 1) people protesting a mosque being built a couple blocks from ground zero and 2) a bunch of Church’s in Florida rallying together to burn copies of the Quran in public.  And we’re going to shed a proud tear, and think to ourselves “America… Fuck. Yeah.”

Never mind that 9/11 really at the end of the day had very little to do with Christianity, Judaism, Islam, or any other religion  and America’s strong Christian base that was (apparently) the only people affected by the attacks –  and had almost everything to do with America’s oil-motivated foreign policy in the Middle East and support of Israel – and the only reason we at The Citrus Report know that is because (to quote David Cross) “THAT’S WHAT HE (Osama Bin Laden) FUCKING SAID!”.

But that’s what makes America awesome.  Because the guy that bombed us told us why he did it, but since we’re so much smarter than everyone, we saw right through that shit and realized that it was because of the Islamic religion and are now going on a alienating witch hunt against that religion – which obviously won’t create or reinforce the tensions we’ve made by this 9 year war against the factions of a region where Islam is most prominent.  Obviously…
