Ego and Hubris - The Michael Malice story, by Harvey Pekar and Gary Dumm was presented to me as a gift by Morten, man of - poetic second rate notes

I've read about half of it so far, and can say: Once again the graphic novel reveals itself as the savior of Art from Fluxus bullshit, Duchampian dogma, and armies of charlatans who honestly believes drinking beer at an opening with their cohorts is in fact a "ready-made" or a "social sculpture"

Wankers, (and state-subsidized at that!)

- go buy some graphic novels instead.

well, back to "Ego and Hubris"...It's an intriguing and funny story of a man (Michael Malice) who basically think he's smarter than everyone else (he usually is) and this paired with a remarkable lack of sensitivity for others makes him an imperial pain in the ass. Other reviewers claim he gets nicer at the end of the book and since I've only read half of it I'll have to take their word for it, so far he comes out as the guy you NEVER want to meet, EVER!

But that's not all, dear readers, a milestone was passed last night; 100.000 visitors to this blog...
