The Chosen People Contemplate Their Greatness And Pretty Pictures And Erotic Art Are Put On Display

Wonkabout

Friday, March 5 through Sunday, March 14: "The Face" is a play about angry, vulgar people who do and say very bad things to each other, for fun. It will make you wonder where all the happiness has gone, but it will also make you laugh, hysterically, like no one is watching. Tickets are $30. [Studio Theater]


  • Friday, March 5 through Sunday, March 7: The National Archives is hosting free screenings of Oscar Nominated Documentary Features, Documentary Short Subject Films, Live Action Short Films, and Animated Short Films. [National Archives]
  • Friday, March 5 through Saturday, April 3: Erotic art may be tacky and gross, but because it has the potential to also be funny, interesting, and enlightening, you should check out "Erotica 2010" at Moca DC. Tonight's opening reception, which starts at 6PM, includes a burlesque show, strippers, and cash prizes. [Moca DC]
  • Saturday, March 6 through Sunday, March 21: People submit pretty photos to DCist using internet photo tool Flickr. DCist uses said photos to illustrate their posts, and then, because the photos are that awesome, DCist puts them on display at the Long View Gallery for their "DCist Exposed Photography Show." The opening reception is this Saturday from 6-10PM. [DCist]
  • Opening Saturday, March 6: Andy Warhol painted portraits of famous Jews, and pissed off many members of the tribe as a result. Hence Theater J's newest program, "Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?" a comedic one-man show about Warhol's portraits and what makes the chosen people happy (if anything). Tickets to this Saturday's 8PM show and Sunday's 3PM show are only $30. The Sunday and Tuesday 7:30PM performances are pay-what-you-can previews, and tickets for the wage laborers (folks under 35) are half-off at every performance. [Theater J]

Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug ... He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks: dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

Yr Wonkette is no stranger to the double-edged weapon of sarcasm, we'll admit. OR WILL WE? It's part of our postmodern toolkit, with which we seek to undermine patriotism, faith, the free market, the family, and ultimately America itself. Duh. But we would never be so naive as to think we have a monopoly on irony and sarcasm, oh no, far from it. This week, we dip into the sludge of deletia for some brilliant examples of cutting rightwing wit turned back on us, with devastating results. Hope you're not all TRIGGERED so much you have to go find a SAFE SPACE, libs!

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!
