It's a Glass
Our favorite Houston-based, Texas-wide, online visual arts journal has finally made good on its promise to slip into something a little more comfortable.

"I've learned that the crucial difference between my ass and my art," Ringtail continues, "is that my ass, while it has an intrinsic market value, depreciates very, very rapidly. My art, on the other hand, however derivative or amateurish, can have its perceived value artificially inflated by a combination of collector gullibility and promotional ballyhoo, becoming an estimable commodity, the value of which will, with luck, rise indefinitely.
"It's all about supply and demand!" the young artist giggles, tonguing a largish cold sore on her upper lip.
