    it keeps cutting off any mention of sado/masochism. what I was saying was that LB’s work already has stitched rubber orifices standing out in volcanic reliefs, very scary/sexy. these look the same, only floppier, as if drained of life.

    The ampersand is a special character in HTML and XML programming, the same way that all those “less than” and “greater than” signs are special characters for HTML/XML tags. When you type S-ampersand-M, this glasstire comment system doesn’t know how to handle it and it explodes inside (just a little).

    “pure imitation” is pure conjecture based on obrien’s view point or personal habits? unless he’s been crawling around in my head or observed the process by which the pieces were arrived at ,then he can only speak to the similarities or differences of the work and not to the act or intent.
