two very pretty arty student types discussing the shock value in art. neither of them seemed to be impressed with the idea of shock for shocks sake, even less so when it involved naked bodies. their conversation drifted from this to the whole idea of how some people make it and some people don't. 'you just have to have the bullshit.' said one. to which the other replied: 'bullshit and the right friends.' i wanted to lean over and tell them both that they needed to get use to it because it happens in all walks of life and not just the art world. but they were young and freshed faced. i spared them my cynicism.
