Episode 344: Art vs Artist

R. Kelly. Michael Jackson. Woody Allen. Kanye West. Roman Polanski. Chris Brown. Harvey Weinstein. These and many more artists and entertainment luminaries have all reached the peak of and continue to enjoy great success despite being, in some cases, general a-holes, and in many, guilty of acting on, the worst impulses humanity has to offer.

On a very special episode, we're talking about the separation between art and artist, how much responsibility do we as fans have, and when enough should be enough.

ROCKTOBER 2012: 1992 - How Nirvana Reached ME, One Teen at a Time

Give it up for your host, Nine-Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen Ninety-Two!!!

[Loudly dressed host enters, smiles, nods, laughs, points to audience]

Give it up for my Posse! Give it up for the Dog Pound!!!!

[Insert happy band, fist-pumping audience, much barking, and an extra-long index finger here]

Wussup! What do Sinead O’Connor’s SNL Pope diss, Courtney Love & Kurt Cobain’s Francis Bean baby, Whitney H & Bobby B’s holy-moly matrimony, and Bill Clinton’s smooth SAXual relations on late night talk TV all have in common?

If you guessed ME, The Year 1992, then... Let’s! Get! Busy!!!  

Well at least it's not Roxette...or Chicago
