The Terrific Trio (minus Adan again) are again joined by guest Jason. This week the collaborative process in art, performance art and the impact of social media on art and criticism is kicked around. What is the difference between commercial art and fine art and what is the the position of the critic in evaluating them. The push/pull between the artists expression of self, the compromise to the patron and the examination of the critic. The critics job to determine the purpose of art in society and whether the artist achieves that purpose. And at least one fart joke.

Topics Discussed Include: Nutella, Andy Kaufman, Tomboy, Frank Miller, George RR Martin, Game of Thrones, the fault in our pronouns, Vertigo Comics, Chris Claremont,  All Star Superman, Superman American Alien, Batman No Mans Land, Rob Liefeld

This week’s SAD or LUXURIOUS: Everyone being a critic on social media
