Spirit Cooking-- don't ask for seconds

Thanks to the heroic efforts of WikiLeaks, we’re learning more and more about what our ruling classes think of us, and how they spend their free time. Short answer: They think very little of the hoi polloi over which they rule, and spend their free time engaged in depraved criminal activities designed for the sole purpose of increasing their hold on power.

But every once in a while they like to really unwind. Which is, presumably, where Spirit Cooking comes in. Here’s an email in which Marina Abramovic inquires as to whether or not John Podesta will be able to attend her fabulous dinner.

Dear Tony, 
I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? 
All my love, Marina

John Podesta is heading Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which means he’s obviously a nefarious individual who does not deserve any benefit of the doubt, on anything. His email account was “hacked” (actually, he fell for a phishing scam), and now WikiLeaks is releasing all the embarrassing, sordid details. This after the evil moron was warned in 2008 that he should start taking email security seriously.

Marina Abramvoic perpetrating some of her "performance art." Seriously. One of her performance art pieces is just her sitting in a chair and staring. If you can't sense the brilliance of this then don't bother coming to one of her spirit cooking dinners.

The “spirit cooking” email from Ms. Abramovic instantly set the internet autists to work, uncovering all sorts of fantastic information about the concept, which apparently involves the use of bodily fluids like menstrual fluids, semen, blood, and so on. And has been a force for evil for CENTURIES!



Sorry, but it’s difficult to take the pretentious and silly Marina Abramovic seriously. She’s carved out a lucrative niche for herself with her “performance art,” and has managed to entice the likes of Lady Gaga, Jay Z, and James Franco into wasting their money and time on what appears to me to be little more than dilettantism. For instance, this is what Ms. Abramovic writes on the wall during her spirit cooking ritual:

“SPIN AROUND
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS
TRY TO EAT
ALL THE QUESTIONS OF
THE DAY”



This is the kind of stuff clever high school sophomores are embarrassed to read in their own journals from two years before. It appears that she is trying to attach hidden meaning to her bullshit by glomming onto Aleister Crowley. (She'll never be Jack Parsons, that's for sure!) In fact, Ms. Abramovic seems to admit that she’s not so much a "performance artist" as a bullshit artist (wink!)— at least now that “RIGHT-WING ATTACKS” have started:

“It was just a normal dinner,” Abramovic said, adding that about 10 people attended. “It was actually just a normal menu, which I call spirit cooking. There was no blood, no anything else. We just call things funny names, that’s all.” (The Kickstarter page advertised “traditional soups.”)

Spirit Cooking, Abramovic explained, was a performance she staged at a number of museums around the world in the ‘90s, painting graffiti with pigs’ blood. She also made a limited-edition book, which contains various recipes. That book is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, among other places.

And the Satanism charge? “Anybody who wants can read my memoirs* and find out that [my work] is far away from Satanism,” she said. (The book was just released this week, she noted, and it’s doing well on Amazon.)

We just call things funny names, that’s all.” That's modern art in a nutshell. Calling things funny names in order to flatter the sensibilities of pretentious nitwits with more money than sense.

Marina Abramovic is a silly dilettante, condescending to an audience she clearly holds in contempt. But from what we’re learning via WikiLeaks, the Clintons and their minions are truly demonic, condescending to the people they hold the power of life and death over-- and for whom they have nothing but contempt.

*Nice way to work in a plug for her book, by the way.

Which reminds me: I parodied this nonsense— and actually included a chapter involving “spirit cooking”- a few years back in my own humorous novel Whimsical Doctor Shoe, which is available for the Kindle.
