'Big Fuckin' Hands' (ART) Ellen Forney's black-and-white hands on red backgrounds are big and fucking. The largest paintings are shorthand for sex acts (a fist gripping an index finger); the smaller ones are individual portraits of friends' hands miming actual sexual acts. What a difference there is between the broad comedic shorthand and the surprisingly quiet, intimate gestures. We stand in the gap, a little embarrassed, a little turned on.

Last night at Liberty, Forney's hands gave my friends and I something to squeel about for a few minutes. The bold comic book style kept my eyes returning to contemplate the fingering positions. My imagination played with their implication like a staring at sexy dress that still covers everything. And like a little kid, my friend Belinda said "Dirty."

Does anyone know who this asshat is who keeps posting anti-Savage shit? At first it was tolerable but now he's gone from complete moron to intolerable nuisance...

You don't need to escape your quotes with backslashes to have them appear correctly. What? Oh, you don't even read your comments because you wrote a shitty perl-script to spam the site for you? Well that explains it.

I'd love to have his real name, so if anyone knows it, give it up. I'm looking to find out if he has ever made any bad calls in his life. Savage is a journalist, not the Commander in Chief for god's sake... So he made a poor endorsement and now has "flip-flopped"... Oh no! He must have no resolve. Either that or he possesses some critical thinking skills. At least he's fessed up to his mistake and now is on the "right" side (depending).

If you want to bitch about something, bitch about that pompous twit Charles who is ruining this publication with his incessant "intellectual" masturbation.
