chelsea fountains



I wish I could submit photos of public sculpture to PaintersNYC because I really want to talk about these.

You have probably seen them at the corner of W. 23rd Street and the West Side Highway... What I want to know is: How? How exactly did this happen?

I mean, there's usually a submission process with all kinds of committees and review panels and stuff, right?

You mean the butt plugs??

YES! Thank you PD. I was trying to put my finger on exactly what they look like... couldn't ... quite... get it.

Well Chelsea is the perfect spot then (not that there is anything wrong with that). But butt plugs as sculpture is stretching it.

You twisted my arm. I must confess my moonlighting as a representative for Doc Johnson adult toy inc. When I was in Chelsea selling the idea for these remarkable pieces of art I rightly convinced the community council of these sculpture's abilty to temper street crime. Today's Butt plugs provide for a theraputic, warm vibrating, experience similar to rocking a baby to sleep. Use of our line of theraputic aids will rewaken lost memories of comfortably sleeping in poopy diapers when you were a baby and bring on curious feelings remembered when mommy used the anal thermometer. The mere sight of our theraputic aids causes criminals to leave the neighborhood and seek the safety of their cribs. And that is how Chelsea got its fountains.

Regi, Pd, Slothy, what is this "Butt Plug" thing your talking about? I know you kids like to use your code words on these blogs but this one I'm not getting.

The fountains erratically shoot warm milk in different directions, it's fun, but watch out!

"butt plugs as sculpture is stretching it". Stretching it is right Pd, It's a tight fit for that little asphalt island, very tight. I wish the giant fuzzy donut was part of this piece.

Corny, butt plugs are objects for the aged---the pre-chew charlie types, who have trouble making it to the toilet. They act as "stoppers" if you will, and allow these folks to live normal and productive lives...to take control of their functions...and such.

The warm milk fountain is for Chelsea's big baby population.

butt plugs are definitely superior to depends, combine them with a stadium pal and you're all set.

My theory is that giant aliens float down at night for some chelsea high jinx... this is our local government's way of pacifying them.

i like that you are bringing an alien conspiracy into the mix here sloth.

 
At 11:03 AM, Blogger sloth said...

Well you would have to have a really big bum to utilize these properly. It's the only possible answer really, if you think about it.

New York offered these toys to King Kong to heighten his sexual urges.

 
At 11:15 AM, Blogger sloth said...

lol yeah Regi, they thought it was Faye Wray he was missing... little did they know.

New York city council worried that King Kong might think he was acting out the anal rape scene in pulp fiction instead... and there was much debate in the Post.

Hi Sloth-
thank you for the giant butt pluggs and for the heads up about that Inka Essenhigh opening on Saturday night. I'd love to go with gree c. hair as we are planning to check out the shows and openings while I'm here, and this one would be way exciting because of the potential to meet all of my blog heroes in person! I'm kinda bumming tho because some friends are throwing a birthday dinner for Gree C. right at the same time as the opening (it's like at 8:00, right?)
Unfair!

 
At 11:41 AM, Blogger sloth said...

Opening is from 6:00 - 8:00, capt'n... you can make it, right??

 
At 12:10 PM, Blogger The Capt'n said...

Sloth, we will do our best, for sure. I gotta go with Gree C.'s wishes on this one. I'm hoping we can go to the opening for like the first half hour at least, even though that's gay. But so are we. Thank you sir for the encouragement.

 
At 12:14 PM, Blogger sloth said...

yr welcome capt'n sir, but i think many of us will be at Sikkema meeting up with WW-of-the-orange-boots at that time, for her "reveal." You could swing by there, or we'll try to make it to 303 before you leave. Big ol' gladhandle to you & birthday wishes & champagne dreams to Gree C!

 
At 12:51 PM, Blogger The Capt'n said...

And I send that gladhandle right back to you, Sloth. I just told Gree C. about your good wishes and she said, "Oh, Slothy."
OK, so I'll try and drag Gree C. to Sikkema for a quickie before we dash off to brooklyn for her thing. I'll stay in touch with your comments station so as to be abreast of the latest updates on the social callendar. I'm counting on you, Sloth. You're my touchstone. Just kidding. But anyway, see ya around I hope.

I wish they would leave these all over the city like Cow Parade.

ah, but to dream...

 
At 12:41 PM, Blogger sloth said...

lol Corny, that's a brilliant idea... giant customized butt-plugs all over NYC; they could be sold at auction to raise funds to reimburse any artists who were ever reamed by their dealers in the form of nonpayment...

The original fountains will of course stand for eternity as a memorial to these poor souls.

Somehow in the last hour I've lost all my motivation but I'm really really going to the goddamned refinery now. I'm going, I'm really going.

Here I go, I'm Audi, Audi 500.

 
At 1:30 PM, Blogger sloth said...

Begone, Corny. BTW, I'm burning some kooky musix on a CD for you. cya out & about this eve...

 
At 3:39 PM, Blogger Regi said...

Sloth, When you go to the Essenhigh show could you tell me later if there was more than 5 paintings exhibited. 303 gallery website only displays 5. Those of us who cant see things in person would like to see the whole thing online AND be able to download a pdf catalogue too.

You have suggested music to me before and if you and everyone have more suggestions I wrote a post where you can drop them off. I also listed my netflix movies and if you have some I'll put them in my quoe.

and lots of photos of your exciting life.....

Hey Slothy, see you later...

Regi, I think there really were 5 paintings in the show, but they were large and laborious works. You could probably order a print catalog from the gallery, I am guessing.

I will check out your musix and movie section -- what a great idea!

The song I wanted to record for Corny especially was "Useless Man" by Minty (live and remix versions), aka Leigh Bowery, who is currently dead. But I also threw some other stuff on there to fatten up the CD a little. The other bands were:

-Cansei de ser Sexy
-The Knife
-Stereo Total
-Datarock

Most of them are pretty obscure, just in the hopes of not giving her something she already has. Anyway.

p.s. Regi, I hope your little hay pig didn't suffer too much. My heart goes out to you and your piglet.
