Message Box
Gene Getman creates stand-up comedy and performances. By manipulating the viewer to create confusion, Gene makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing. His performances are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, clichťs and bad jokes. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image. By rejecting an objective truth and global cultural narratives, he often creates several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ?mistakes? are repeated. His work urge us to renegotiate performance as being part of a reactive or - at times - autistic medium, commenting on oppressing themes in our contemporary society. By parodying mass media by exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, he creates with daily, recognizable elements, an unprecedented situation in which the viewer is confronted with the conditioning of his own perception and has to reconsider his biased position. His works are on the one hand touchingly beautiful, on the other hand painfully attractive. Again and again, the artist leaves us orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts. Gene Getman currently lives and works in New York City.

North Korea is looking good these days!

A Rundown of the Republican Candidates

Marco Rubio is so green the only thing he’s qualified to lead is a St. Patricks day parade. Carly Fioria overcompensates so much for being a female republican, there‚Äôs a good chance she performed her own abortions. Rand Paul should be running as a democrat - they tend to have more appreciation of neo-socialist anti-semites. Huckabee needs to get off Jesus’ dick and out of women’s uteruses. Ted Cruz needs to quit wasting his time - if we’re gonna elect a Canadian you better believe it’ll be Ryan Gosling. Chris Christie needs to understand that “Im from NJ” is not campaign strategy. Jeb Bush cant even pretend that every dick in the military-industrial complex hasn’t been in his mouth and anus. Ben Carson should stop taking speech lesson from Droopy the dog (although performing brain surgery on children does make him pretty qualified to lead the American public). There were two other guys, I think, but I cant even pretend that they’re relevant in any way. And then there’s Trump, the official candidate of the Social Villains podcast. He probably gets¬†that deporting 12 million people is insane and impossible, building a wall from San Diego to the Gulf coast will cost more money than we owe China, and Putin & the Iranian caliphate aren’t reality show contestant that he can fire, but pretending he believes makes it that much more fun to vote for him.

Bill of Rights for ISIS

It’s not their barbarism or their military capability or their growing appeal and understanding of social media. It’s not even their ability to launch or incite attacks on civilians all over the world that makes ISIS such a threat. If it were just those things, combating them would be much more simple and direct. What makes ISIS so insidious is their ability to use our own bill of rights and civil liberties against us.
Freedom of media, protection against unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to live without persecution based on race, religion, or ethnicity, the right to bare arms, the right to assemble peacefully; all of these things which are so essential to the core of our society, now become our enemies’ greatest asset.
This country is like a giant armor-plated robot thats been thrown into a paradox loop. Our bureaucracy is simply not equipped to handle the logic bomb. All our bitching and arguing, and back and forth rhetoric about Trump and guns and borders and the Syrian refugees boils down to a desperate “does not compute” until our head explodes.

5 x 3 = 1984

Being a kid in school today must be pretty tough. Not only must you constantly check your privilege and watch your microaggressions so as not be expelled for sexually assaulting the girl in homeroom with an awkward look in her general vicinity, but now you can’t even do math unless it’s rubber stamped by the state.

The only reason we have math is to describe our reality. The fact that it can be shaped and molded to your liking is what makes it so useful and versatile. Forcing kids to solve a problem according to some state-mandate defeats the entire purpose of teaching them the fucking shit. The aim of common core is not math but indoctrination.

This video says that the reason 5x3=5+5+5=15 is wrong is because 5x3 should be read as “five groups of three” so the correct answer will be 3+3+3+3+3.
Is this fucking poetry class?! why am I reading?? and what business is it or yours how I got to the solution? the video claims that the reason for this is that it will help students later in multivariable calculus. MULTI-VARIABLE fucking calculus!

these kids are lucky if they can count their own fingers after however-many years of this garbage. I took multi-variable calculus and got an A. Let me tell you that at no point was I sitting there going “jeez I wish I were doing this the most complicated way possible”.

Being good at math takes ingenuity and critical thinking and being great at it takes a willingness to venture outside of convention and come up with your own solutions. Common core teaches none of this! There is not purpose for “five groups of three” vs. “three groups of five”. The laws of nature itself ensures this is so. The only way common core prepares you for the world is by teaching obedience and conformity to a faceless bureaucracy which is exactly it’s intent.

How many fingers an I holding up, Winston?
