It’s always sad to have an intern leave but it’s even more sad when he is….. The Last Man On Earth! Mr.Chris Williams not only gained the secrets of The Cult Of Decay but he also kicked ass each and every week with every task that we through his way. No box was too heavy to lift, no shirt too hard to fold, no trash bag to smelly to toss out, no car too dirty to wash (okay i’m joking about making him wash my car but you get the idea). Thanks for giving the cult 110% and good luck with the future. Spread the word of decay and live prosperous!

Any attempts to describe the madness that was Art Basel Miami 2010 in a few sentences will undoubtedly fall short. Put succinctly – lots of art, lots of people, lots of sun, lots of fun.

Did I find what I was looking for? It’s hard to say my friends, so loyal B/D reader you be the judge. Here are some of the highlights from Day 1: Art Basel Miami Beach…

In her series, Frankenlovely, Lee Gainer asks us to observe the faces that have been advertised as “true beauty,” and reflect.
