The Dirty Secret of Intellectual Berlin

Przemek Pyszczek: Do you want to know the Berlin art world’s dirty little secret?

Butt Magazine: Yeah, of course I do.

P: Everyone’s obsessed with reality TV. Everyone’s watching ‘Project Runway’.

Travis Larusson: ‘Housewives’… Like e-ver-y-one.

P: We try to avoid ‘The Real Housewives of OC’ and ‘Miami’ ‘cause those are busted. Like seriously. Here there’s ‘Germany’s Next Topmodel’ with Heidi Klum screaming, ‘Schlampe!’

T: Which means slut in German.

P: And, ‘Schnell, schnell!’ Faster, faster! Germans think she’s the ultimate ho. When she speaks German apparently she sounds like the biggest trashbag.

And now you know: Berlin's not all arguments about the impact of Gerhard Richter and "the remaking of private space." (Link not totally safe for work but not like, nakedness on-click.)

Man, the only surprise is that the human race didn't invent reality tv from the very start, the get go, the very first vacuum tube. There's nothing we like more than watching ourselves. Add in the relaxed boundaries of when or when not it's okay to scream at people, and we're never going to accomplish anything else in the history of entertainment. This is is. This is the peak.

I like these more nuanced NSFW warnings. It's a relative concept!

You're right, that was too much pink for my work-place monitor. And my eyes. I think in pink now.
