E-mails? We’re out here talking bout e-mails?! Not [insert any of the dozens of disgusting/unbelievable/deplorable things Donald Trump has done] but e-mails.
(If you don’t get that Allen Iverson press conference reference, you can watch it here, or better yet watch the Iverson doc on Netflix because it’s amazing).
Anyway, the e-mail we’re discussing today (thanks a lot, Wikileaks) made reference to a project by artist Marina Abramovic entitled Spirit Cooking, a notion that Trump supporters have (surprise) ran with to infer that Clinton is a satanist or even satan herself (but probably just a satanist because how could a women be powerful enough to be the satan. Am I right?!).
Here’s what Spirit Cooking is:
Spirit Cooking was the first project Jacob Samuel produced with his portable aquatint box, working with Abramović—a performance artist with little printmaking experience—in her Amsterdam studio. The artist chose to make a cookbook,writing a series of “aphrodisiac recipes” that serve as evocative instructions for actions or thoughts. To allow the artist to create the accompanying etchings in a manner consistent with her body-oriented practice, Samuel prepared the plates with soft ground so she could scratch directly onto the surface with her fingernails and encouraged her to work with spitbite, using her own saliva with nitric acid to paint on the plate.
It’s a goddamn art project by Marina Abramovic. It is not satanic cooking featuring baby parts leftover from abortions or whatever the hell else Trump supporters are saying it is (you can read all about it here, but be warned, it’s where dreams go to die).
Guys, if Anthony Weiner and Marina Abramovic end up being the key to Clinton’s demise, I’m fucking done.
