Goodbye Kitty: Why It Won't Be a Total Loss If Western Civilization Ceases to Exist

Hello Kitty by Shepard Fairey
Hello Kitty, Hello Art! Book Release & Art Show at Known Gallery

Yes, sometimes once great civilizations deserve a swift kick in the backside to drive them over the cliff of history and down, down, down to dusty death on the ash heap of burned out cultures. I'd be sorry to see Real Housewives of New Jersey replaced by Real Asian Housewives of New Jersey, but a society's gotta know its limitations.

Art books celebrating Hello Kitty with a cover by that slimeball who stole the AP image for his Obama Hope poster are only a start; only a blurred milepost on the road of our steep decline. Here are other powerful arguments for the forced seppuku of "Our Town," all found at the same source on the same afternoon.

The Halloween costumes I understand (and appreciate, as modeled)!

The rest, nah.

It's art. You aren't supposed to understand it. You're supposed to feel the oppressed angstery of the artist.
