hardcore downtown artist, quilt repairer/consultant & ‘art world groover’ . . . to JOSH HARRIS, and yes, damn it . . . he paid well !!
and well, damn it . . YES !!
I’m still terrorizing the mainstream art world !!
and, calling the . . shots & the REAL TALENT !!!!!!!!!
so, boo-ya !! all ya wannabes, fakes & posers !!
JOSH HARRIS. the head honcho.
CEO. and .. not to forget: LUVVY !! / the CLOWN – or, how to put it ?
the art world’s ‘WOLF’ . . before there was … a ‘WOLF ON WALL STREET’ – ?!!
JOSH HARRIS, mad brilliant . .
Internet guru, futurist . . and well, GENIUS !! ARTIST !! VISIONARY !!
who funded !! & founded !! it all . . and, set it all in motion.
just as SEAN VEGEZZI . . is a (far-out) ‘product’ of his unique time . . and place.
so was JOSH.
JOSH HARRIS . . left sunny U CAL in the mid 90s . . and came to NYC with only a second-hand car, and big dreams. he promptly sold the car for $750 . . and, with that small seed of dough – he started JUPITER.COM – the very first internet web trend tracking company – which he then promptly flipped, as they say: IPO’D !! . . for $81+ million dollars.
so yes. he was . . a mad crazy 90s dot.com CEO, for real.
and so – yes, ‘WOLF ON WALL STREET’ drugs, sex and $$ collides . . with the hardcore art scene, NYC style !! it was . . the dot.com era.
ok. maybe not quite as much .. drugs. but almost. but def, more ART !!
so, yeah. this is . . the stuff of legends. he is also know as the ‘Andy Warhol of the web’, and the ‘father’ . . of social working, by the way.
(just saying. google: ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ – the movie)
he, JOSH . . then pumped all that money, $81 million !! o.k. he bought a few antique quilts along the way (!!) . . into PSEUDO.COM.
OMG — Pseudo.com !!
live streaming video, comedy, culture, gaming, hip hop & soft porn, of course !! while most people were still on dial-up, if that !!
and the rest . .
is history !!
