Transgression: who is she? Is she real? Is she dead? OK and Lucia are back to their roots, being ON ONE. Covering a range of topics that all make sense together I swear. We start with the Laura Kipnis essay “Transgression, an Elegy” which is difficult to separate from Kipnis herself, the fucking harper’s letter again, etc; but we also tie it to China, and how other countries handle celebrity influence. Can China erase Billionaires? Can they make gaming good?? Will they start making more gay shows less illegal??? I, dear listener, want to believe. ps- the Kanye take is this episode also.

I have a particular love of songs about how much it sucks to be famous, and true story was the world’s worst English teacher at a summer camp in China and made a bunch of mystified 12 year olds watch the video for Lucky like four times in a row to do a really bad “fill in the lyrics” worksheet. Sorry, kids! Toronto correspondent and living comics legend Eric Kostiuk Williams (@kostiukwilliams) returns to A&L to discuss the ultimate woman posting her L, Britney’s court statement regarding her legalized criminal conservatorship. We also got a segment we call “Oh Right, What’s Canada’s Doing Aboot That?”, a small gag reflex-like aside on local NY politics, how freakin HOT it is, and of course at least 10 minutes on the impact of Toxic alone. Pop in the ol earbuds, get the sink going, and do your dishes with the gentle banter of your real life friends, Lucia, OK, and Sarah, this week on dragon ball z!

State sponsored community arts projects? Are they good? Are they bad? Don’t worry, we figured it out (don’t think about it), today on Art and Labor! Lucia, OK and Sarah comb through some PDFs that don’t quite say the quiet part loud as much as psychotically dump the job of empire onto the soft hands of us meagre propagandists. We’re not saying don’t get you your grant money, we’re very pro leeching of Amerikkka, but at least right here right now we’re willing to say that a mural painted to look like a Faith Ringgold quilt is in fact not a suitable replacement for vaccine mandates. Plus! Never trust a fancy lad, is revolution possible, will the Knockdown Center please host my Happening that will let you know what to do in Afghanistan? Tweet at the show how many kids you think are gonna die this semester of school, and the closest guess gets a free t shirt!

This week OK, Lucia and Sarah are subtextually talkin trash- the ipcc report that shall not be named and the unmentioned garbage days they all had in the triple goddess of Art Jobs- working 2 artist-but-not-art jobs, working on your actual shit in a windowless room, and aimless walks around bushwick. Think of this week’s discussion as the negative space around a drawing of a vase- wow, it looks just like someone getting skinned alive when you cross your eyes and pull your head back 6”-12” inches!

The democrats are a disgusting and incompetent excuse for a political party, example 9999. Why even entertain the blue conservatives being any better?? Because they learned how to parrot some left words? Is the alternative really any less exhausting? The creep president said the creep governor should resign, so will he? Maybe being Italian will hold up as a legal defense, we may never know ’cause nobody’s charging him.

CW: This episode we joke around about suicide. If you’re not in the mood for it, feel free to skip (it’s mostly a filler episode anyway, since we caught up to the manga, we’ll get back to the main plot next week).

Descend into the deep scorpionic undertide, with your pals (seriously, we’re pals) at Art & Labor! This week Lucia, Sarah and OK crawl around on the seabed floor like the bottom feeders they are, fulfilling their ecological niche of Vessel Updates™, I Told You Sos™ (Delta Varient), and Pollyanna Scolding™. Think of us right now as those black tar turds you got when you did the Master Cleanse. Let us bloodlet some of those humours for you, this week on Art and Labor!

Hey there Baysiders and Ridgewooders, Art and Labor here, your one and only source for the scandalous lives of brooklyn’s finest backwash. Spotted on the steps of a Glendale bodega, an A&L reuniting with JDJ? There’s nothing O, D, and S love more than a rousing round table on electoralism, but is the DSA really ready to play ball with the big leagues? Democrats aren’t exactly known for playing fair, or rather, playing fair anywhere they’ve already won a power struggle. Eric Adams might have won the throne of Democratic primary candidate for the mayoral race already, but an independent working class has a way of toppling crowns, preferably with guillotines. We’ll just have to see if so called leftists have it in them to reign a little terror. No matter what, though, you know A&L is expropriating all the luscious details.

You know you love me,

xoxo, Art and Labor

We got Darcie and OK checking in on Lucia and Vinnie in BRAZIL! Ya know, with the good Amazon (for now). We thank Lucia for hexing Bolsonaro, and pray this is “the one” so she can join the big celebration! Hear all about Lucia’s trip so far: food, art, stray dogs, tanks, etc. It’s fun to vicariously live through someone braving international travel rn!! Then we talk about big corps/brands. Is it possible to boycott a Pepsico or Nestle or Amazon (bad one) as their tendrils continue to branch and mutate? Support the Frito-Lay workers strike fund either way!!!

Episode 127 - Psychic Damage w/ Topher Florence

OK and Sarah slightly lose it this week talking to their guru at the top of the mountain, possible legend, and internet auteur Topher Florence aka Docfuture1. Actually coming from Something Awful in the early 2000s, Topher’s work as a writer and video artist cut to the bone, and present a highly informed perspective of fandom, cringe culture, anonymous cruelty aka the “caldron of suburban internet”. Why did Disney buy Marvel? Why has isekai taken off in the past decade? Why do we still differentiate between high and low culture, even though we know better? An episode for the Real Ones and a desperate attempt by OK to history-build a hagiography in order to justify all this other shit we do. We’re starting a cult for if you ever wanted to be your own boss, set your own hours, and huff paint while flashbacking to Gooey Gus. Get in on the ground floor if you’re ready to change your life!

Beautiful Bay Area babes Sam Lefebvre and Lor came to town and we had us a glorious struggle session about, what else, the precarious and confusing class positioning of artists. Plus, what should artworkers and activists demand wrt public control of museum endowments and governance? Also, rent boards are HR for land antagonisms for real!!! We even debate post-capitalist horizons and if it’s possible to dissolve the secondary markets. Did I mention Lor is assisting cyborg feminist hero Lynn Hershman Leeson??
