Sorry. We were a little slow due to power outages and the mediocre AT&T.
Art Critic Greg Cook (The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix) joins Matt Nash, James Nadeau and Christian Holland of Big RED & Shiny to discuss
the 2008 AICA New England Awards.
Using the list of winners as a starting point, they discuss the state of the arts in New England and what they thought was great, mediocre and terrible. Disappointment in the new Institute of Contemporary Art is expressed; AICA is scrutinized; and conclusions are elusive.
And the magic of Mike Benedetto.
This week the show is Co-hosted by Lori Waxman, recorded live in coffee shop on a Saturday night during dinner.
She and Duncan check out what is going on in the Chicago Alternative spaces. San Francisco beats down Eli Broad/LACMA and it turns out Marc LeBlanc is part of the oppressive white male hegemony.
Ah, Bad at Sports is “sweet as pie.” Let the hate mail flow freely.

Holy guacamole am I sick this week, yuck. One of the joys of having a child in daycare.

The IBM T-42 that has handled the last 130+ shows is fatally ill and needs replacement pronto. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something fairly recent laying about you would like to get off of your hands! Thanks.
