Article on Slate about Japanese artist Yoshimoto Nara. I like Nara. The photo essay on Slate lets you noodle through Nara's new exhibit. Author Ben Davis has issues with Nara though, but I think asking is modern art is meaningful is sort of...meaningless.
Oh, and, I saw The Deathly Hallows this weekend, and while I'm not going to review it, I will say, mad props for using Nick Cave's "O Children" from Abbatoir Blues. I get instantly teary when I hear that song.
