Todd Goldman the pedophile plagiarist is also a douche

This is from a Wired blog.
Once upon a time, I was strolling with two people down at the Grove shopping complex in Los Angeles. We passed a gallery with giant windows, a gallery packed to the gills with the most insipid, offensively dull paintings we had ever seen. We stood in awe that this person had conned someone into giving them an entire retail space to soil. There were paintings of lamps that looked as if they had been done by "getting old ain't so bad" greeting card illustrators. Mr. Bill-like cartoon faces, with no perceivable expression or appeal, stared sightlessly off white canvas. Seemingly random depictions of household objects bore zany witticisms scrawled atop.

"Jesus wept," someone said, "this shit is TERRIBLE."

Instantly, he was upon us. The artist himself, lurking at a nearby cafe table and supervising the reactions of the gallery's passerby, leapt to his feet and verbally laid into us. Sputtering and red, he demanded to know what we had said about him, if we knew who we were dealing with, and who the hell we thought we were. We pointed and laughed at the poor crazy man who couldn't draw, and went to a movie.

And that batshit insane motherfucker turned out to be none other than Todd Goldman. Jesus christ, what a prick!

Digg it!

I'll admit I sometimes Google my name to see what people are saying. X-D But if someone says "Sirkowski sucks" on a forum, I'm not entering a flame war, it's not worth the trouble or the time.

The only time I did something was when someone accused me of being racist to him. The guy was such a bad liar that the mods had to shut him up.

Loathe shit conceptual artists. Long way back. You get people who spend 4-8 years in art school and half can't draw a stick figure to save their lives. The other half are d--- good, but they turn to 'conceptual splatter phoenix blasphemy for attention' art and then take time to bash 'sequential art' and those artists, even though they tend to be the ones with sheltered lives and tons of grant money.
