Tuesday ‘Tudez: In Remembrance of Nasty Nets

There are some Tuesdays when it’s 100 degrees outside for the forseeable future and the week stretches ahead of you like an oil-stained rubber band. When the hours are long and you haven’t even made it to the Wednesday hump yet, sometimes it’s best to curl up with some comforting snacks of detritus scavenged from the deepest MS Paint-filled abysses of The Intornetz: Version 1.0.

So let us bless the Nasty Nets Internet Surfing Club for their archive of scraggly yin-yang gifs, Nirvana avatars and CursorMania advertisements. Relax your minds, d00ds.

In related ‘tudez, go read this interview with Rhizome curator and Nasty Nets contributor Marisa Olson, courtesy of We Make Money Not Art.

Kevin Bewersdorf and Nasty Nets’ Paul Slocum collaborated here in Austin last year in an Okay Mountain exhibition. How I wish I’d gone so I could have seen this:

Deep House for Symphonic Band and Choir, 2006
dance club/rave music composed for high school or college band and choir, installed as sheet music, music loop, and grow lights.
