In the past couple weeks we’ve been buckling down for the new school year: putting the final touches on our lesson plans, picking up our tweed blazers from the cleaners, or, in my case, actually going back to school (You’ll never guess what for!), so we’re a little slimmer than you might be used to, but just so you know it’s not because we’ve been fasting. We’re not strict observers of Ramadan and we haven’t been practicing for Yom Kippur. (We also don’t characteristically make fun of religions, as we’d rather avoid the $100,000 to $150,000 bounties placed on those who do.)
In Issue Sixty-Nine (69) we’re up to our “usual jejune and . . . twee winking pop references,” but not without you in mind. We couldn’t go for too long without one of Steve Aishman’s Report from the Phantom Zone and we doubt you could either. Thomas Marquet’s provided us with another enlightened look at the discourse of the art world economy in art world economic discourse while Big RED Publisher Matthew Nash has provided another one of his typically circumspect reviews. Heidi Marston Aishman has added an entirely new media to the Big RED review section: video! (courtesy of YouTube–er, Google).
We hope you enjoyed your summer, had a lovely labor day, and remembered to rotate the white out of your wardrobe.
