    I remember seeing a book in the bookstore about the drawings Dr. Seuss did not want people to see. I look through a couple of pages and I remember one of them involving a woman nearly getting raped or something. O_o

    After what Dr. Seuss went through, I wouldn't be surprised if he created tentacle porn.

    The whole changing religion just before dieing is complete nonsense. Since most people are old and senile by then. Batshit Crazy.

    The Vatican grabbing a chisel and knocking all the knobs off the male nude statues in Rome and replacing them with leaves.

    Assholes.

    Bob Marley was about 30 when he died and had to give up rasta for chemo. Rasta is related to Christianity so it makes sense.

    What's the deal with Dr. Seuss? I guess that's what wiki is for.

    I thought the Rastas were actually hostile to Christianity (?)

    Some of the Marley lyrics mock the "sky god" and claim that "Jah is a livin' man." If memory serves, I think they worshiped the king of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, as a "Jah."

    Ahh, off to Google!

    srry should have been more descriptive, he did change it to a Ethopian form of chrisitanity so maybe Raoul Duke is right.

    I thought the leaves on statues thing were done by the original artists heh...

    and see I never knew stuff about Dr.Seuss or what he went through, wiki'ng right now

    Van Gogh couldnt have been the only batshit crazy artist, yet his life isnt really censored, you read that stuff in his biography and art books, but I feel like other artists, especially entertainment artists, have skeletons, many skeletons in their closet, i just dont know where to look

    This was banned in the seventies!! The fact is Judy Chicago was the first to depict a woman's vagina overtly as a celebration and she was completely banned by every gallery and Museum until just a few years ago, she depicted Amelia Earhart, Frieda Kahla and many other important women throughout history. In reading this description I think this may be censorship continued??? There is such a vague description here and unless you know about her art, I saw the plates at the Met. and they flat out said what they were. They are vagina's, what's the big deal, it's not the 70's it's 2009!!! Also this is the photo can anyone see what this is??? Not at all. They also misspelled vulva in the description.

    Judy Chicago: The Dinner Party

    Judy Chicago (American, b. 1939). The Dinner Party, 1974–79. Mixed media: ceramic, porcelain, textile.

    Long-Term Installation

    The Dinner Party, an important icon of 1970s feminist art and a milestone in twentieth-century art, is presented as the centerpiece around which the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is organized. The Dinner Party comprises a massive ceremonial banquet, arranged on a triangular table with a total of thirty-nine place settings, each commemorating an important woman from history. The settings consist of embroidered runners, gold chalices and utensils, and china-painted porcelain plates with raised central motifs that are based on vulvar and butterfly forms and rendered in styles appropriate to the individual women being honored. The names of another 999 women are inscribed in gold on the white tile floor below the triangular table.

    Since I remember when the Dinner Party was first exhibited in '79, hardly.
    From the Brooklyn Museum's history of the Dinner Party's exhibitions:
    The Dinner Party first opened to the public at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on March 14, 1979. Five thousand people attended the opening, and during its three months on view, approximately one hundred thousand people came to see it. After its premiere, The Dinner Party went on a nine-year international tour sparked by grass-roots efforts to find exhibition venues for the piece. The tour began in North America at the University of Houston at Clear Lake, Texas, and continued to venues in Boston, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Chicago, Atlanta, and across Canada. The tour continued through Europe at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Scotland; The Warehouse, London; and Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany; ending at the Royal Exhibition and Conference Center in Melbourne, Australia, in 1988. The exhibitions were hugely popular, drawing large crowds at every venue—for the European tour alone the total viewing audience was over a million people.
    There was also a really good SoHo gallery parody show in the 80's called the Boxed Lunch (pun, I'm sure, intended).

    (EDIT:It's not a misspelling. Vulvar is the adjective form of vulva, the equivalent of phallic for phallus.)

    thanks Elwell, I guess I'm wrong ... again, I know one of her students from the sixties, she told me that Judy was banned by Museums and galleries, in the beginning, I thought it was just a few years ago. and thank you for correcting my Vulvar too

    Jah is just another word for God.

    The relationship between Rastafarianism and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is a complicated one.

    From Wikipedia, I learned that the Rastas believed that Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I was the second coming of Jesus.

    Apparently, Selassie was a good sport about the whole thing, but never really confirmed or denied actually being Jesus.

    Was probably kinda awkward when he died in the mid 70s!

    One of the greatest mass forms of censorship in the USA was most of the mainstream media NOT publishing the Danish Mohammed cartoons back when that was a controversy.
