    Reader comments on The Cremaster Cycle

    Subject: truly a disappointment
    Date: Nov 24, 2004
    Sender: bradPrevious | Next

    Excited to take a road trip to view the art I had been studying, I found myself inside one of the most famous museums in the world. Instead of being awestruck by some of the best art of the modern age, I was instead met with a piano filled with cement mix with a pile of potatoes beside it. Now I know it is symbolic of a vagina or something along those lines, and I know I should appreciate Barney's art as being a clever symbolic journey through the cycle of fertility, but I ended up saying "This scares the shit out of me and I don't know why." Kudos to those of you who are "artsy" enough to appreciate (or at least pretend to appreciate) this explosion of beeswax, grapes, and bloody rag men. As for the rest of us, we will be off somewhere watching Seinfeld or something.
