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.

Also Please note on the http://badatsport.libsyn.com blog for the time and place of the Robert Heinecken Memorial in your area.

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?

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.”

DON’T FORGET:

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.
Watch the blog for details.

Wesley Kimler (painter, agitator, and co-founder of http://www.sharkforum.org) slices and dices the Chicago art world. Ouch. Wesley gives us the skinny on being an artist in Chicago, who is ruining the Chicago art world, and what we can do to start turning it all around. The man is not afraid to name names and calls for the heads of many a Chicago Art world insider. Chicago, meet the “Shark.” Lets hope we are not his foe.

ALSO:

In theory, we will be in this week’s Time Out Chicago!!!

Bad at Sports will be on auction for the 40000 moving support fund at Phyllis’ Musical Inn (1800 W. Division St.) June 29th from 7-10pm (featuring a silent art and us auction and the musical stylings of Oh Charles!)

Why not throw a vote in for us at Podcast Alley. We would love you a little more and it would delight Duncan’s Parents:
