"It ain't that hard internet. It's not rocket science. It's the easy part making it. You know what I'm saying? The hard part is giving it...you know, giving it cultural context."
"Tyler Perry has more money than any artist will ever have, ever."
"Basically Relational Aesthetics is when someone with an MFA wants to meet new people, but becasue they spent all that time persuing an MFA they don't know how to talk to people normally & they have really poor social skills..."
"What's up internet...I am kinda in a somber mood cause of the passing of Louise Bourgeois...we lost a true soldier...she was on this planet for a good 150 years...doing her thing."
"She maintained it with her sculptures of cocks & spiders & shit & installations I don't really understand."
"...if you want to be a succesful artist...ummmm one, be white. A'right. Being white helps in the art world...uhhhh, two, be a white male..."
These are just a few of the amazing thoughts that come from Henessey Youngman. You need to watch these videos. And then you need to go to his YouTube page & watch more. These videos are seriously what makes me love life and the internet so much; wit, art and brilliance combined. But wait, then he sprinlkles race, gender and much more on the top. I mean come on, Hennessy refers to Louise Bourgeois as truly hip hop and a fallen soldier among the ranks of Tupac and Biggie! Good, good stuff. Special thanks to my girl, Katie Kurtz for leading me to The Real Hennessy's twitter page.
