Industry of the Ordinary, Matthew Wilson and Adam Brooks talk about football (soccer to us yanks), their projects and FIGHT NIGHT!!!
We here at Bad at Sports can’t wait to take all comers in the ring! Also our new book advocate Terri Griffith talks about Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky) and his new book Rhythm Science.

Kat Parker and Katie Rashid tell us about Duchess, their new gallery. Brian Andrews does his own dramatic interpretation of Matthew Barney’s recent radio Q&A as his publicist didn’t think we were important enough to interview him.
Brian’s brilliant dramatics really pull Bad at Sports in a whole new direction, changing our trajectory forever. Wow.
Who could ask for more?!?
So, this week we try and get a handle on WTF is going on in Chicago and LA today.
Lynne Warren Talks about the work of Robert Heinecken and the hole left by his passing. Brian tells us that LA is still crummby and then sites his case studies. Amanda and Duncan hit Polvo, The Cultural Center, and the Museum of Contermporary Photography.
Also Please note on the http://badatsport.libsyn.com blog for the time and place of the Robert Heinecken Memorial in your area.
Next week… Something. Something good.
Chicago art legend, radio personality, poet, actor, boxer, and all around nice guy Tony Fitzpatrick talks about Tattoo history, Chicago’s art world, the working class mode of being an artist and why this is a kick-ass time and place to be.
Richard, Duncan, and Amanda bob their heads along as this legendary Chicagoan story teller entrances us with yarns of Al Capone, Nixon’s stolen election, Amanda Browder’s mom, and yes, perhaps a little ribbing of your friends to the North. (No, not Milwaukee)
WEAR IT WITH PRIDE AND HELP BAS OUT! Are you interested in supporting Bad at Sports, while wearing a sporty new hoodie?
Maybe picking out a great coffee mug?
WTF do I mean? We have a lovely BAS + Cafe Press Site at… www.cafepress.com/badatsports
BAT Magazine: Blunt Art Text. Like ninjas of art journalism, these evil doers sneak around and do smart, thoughtful reviews and publish them in their journal. We thought we had the drop on them, but nope the lights when out and Richard and I found ourselves tied together, laying on train tracks.
Who knew Richard was born with a prehensile tail?
It was a close one. Enjoy.
Oh Yeah, BAT is Elijah Burgher, Julia Marsh and William Staples.
Richard would like to note next to them, “[we] seem even dumber than usual.”
We are being auctioned off at Phyllis’s Musical Inn on
Thursday the 29th to benefit 40000.
AND TOTALLY, OH MY GOD!!! Duncan and Richard are announcing the first
annual art-world Kickball Tournament July 1st at Noon in Wicker Park.
