Roland Young is an often lauded and very well respected member of the design faculty of Pasadena’s Art Center College of Art and Design.
A few years ago a “You Tube” video made its way around to the younger faculty at the art schools across America. The clip was called “Roland is God” and showed (via hidden camera) a particularly brutal critique given by Young to a group of students at Art Center. Now the video (in expanded form) can be seen on a site called (surprisingly) “Roland is God.” It has been accompanied by the release of an all new “You Tube” video displaying Professor Young’s unorthodox critical stylings.
Get it while it’s hot.
Tired of being “Bad at Sports”?
Well if so, thanks to the power of sciences and the interweb you now can consume Powerthirst™.
With this beverage you can topple tall things that were previously….. untoppable, and have many male babies. Untoppable male babies with guns for arms.
Just listen to this commercial (written by comedian Mark Little) and see what Powerthirst™ can do for you. With thousands of satisfied customers and Richard Holland with son Max as spokesmen you shouldn’t wait to get some.
If the local Mart is closed just bust a window, they understand cause it is Powerthirst™.
Hell you would be the third person this week alone.
The Ultimate Art School Building wasn’t built in NYC of course (space issues) or Chicago (would have to be built with cut stone) or Kansas City even (doesn’t have fountains in the design) no the Ultimate Art School building was built in none other then the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
The School of Art, Design and Media a 5-story facility nestled in the corner of the campus with a forest to it’s back blends the heart shaped grass and glass building amazingly with the surroundings, gives a relaxing cool demeanor and most importantly is now the best place in the world to play hacky sack (aka footbag).
Feel free to post photos of your Art & Design building (or barracks as the case may be).
I don’t think I can sleep after seeing this, and the scorpion is scarry too.

In February’s edition of Chicago Magazine ( soon to be on newsstands ) they rate the top websites that are Chicago focused and/or based.
Bad at Sports was kindly named and showcased in the Art & Culture category along with other Chicago resources as Sharkforum, Chicago Artists Resource & Paul Kline’s Artletter. Not to forget the personal writings of Edward Lifson, cough, cough.
We thank every listener that has made this possible for the last 2+ years & the editorial staff of Chicago Magazine for recognizing the hard work of a handful of Chicago street punks like us.
In true form we take the recognition with one hand and flip off the establishment with the other hand (minus a few fingers). At least thats what I think the artist handbook decrees, who knows we were never good with rules.
