I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art

Remember how I want the story of my life to be narrated by Mr. Tom Waits?  Looks like I shouldn’t have advertised that wish, because someone stole it.

The artist, John Baldessari, that’s who.

Filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or LACMA if you are a cool kid,  recently made a great short (5 minutes, 55 seconds) film about the conceptual artist, narrated by Tom Waits.

Tom Waits does have a great voice.
John Baldessari does do some great art. (I’m  a big modern art fan)
So I guess I’m ok it.
It’s not like I have Tom Wait’s voice on retainer.  
That would just be selfish.

(Thanks to Ms. M for passing the link to the film to me)
