Museum of Bad Art

24 September 2013

Memories, memories. I visited this place in 2004 with a good friend (whose name I forgot already) who lived on the same floor in my college dorm. I don’t know what we were thinking.

The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) is a community-based, private institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory.

MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA’s collection and ambitions have grown exponentially.

Initially, MOBA was housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. This meager exhibition space limited the museum to being a regional cultural resource for the New England area.

As the only museum dedicated to bringing the worst of art to the widest of audiences we felt morally compelled to explore new, more creative ways of bringing this priceless collection of quality bad art to a global audience. Another Boston-area cultural institution, Dedham Community Theatre, generously allowed MOBA the use of their basement. Our first permanent gallery is now conveniently located just outside the men’s room in a 1927 movie theatre. The ambience created such a convivial atmosphere, that when we went looking for a second location, the only place that was up to our quality standards was another theatre basement. The Somerville Theater in Davis Square, Somerville MA is now our second gallery.

Enjoy the collection:

These people are still alive (as of today)

1. Run Run Shaw — the guy who founded Shaw Studios, which produced many P. Ramlee films.

2.  Olivia de Havilland — Melanie from Gone With the Wind

3. Joan Fontaine — the main character in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca. She is Olivia de Havilland’s sister, but they haven’t been talking for each other for a long time due to some age-old conflict. Which is a shame, to be living this long, but not able to talk to your own sister.

Easy Rider

11 September 2013

Easy Rider (1969) is my favorite film from the 60s. It stars Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper & the young Jack Nicholson. Fonda directed, Hopper produced, and they both wrote, the film.

The film is about the adventure of 2 hippie bikers (Fonda & Hopper) who went traveling in the American South. And somewhere in the middle of the trip they were joined by an ACLU lawyer (Nicholson). There is no complicated storyline, just people and places they encounter in their journey.

Peter Fonda’s character is one of the coolest protagonists ever to appear on film.

Easy Rider is a cinematic masterpiece, and is often included in “greatest movies” lists.

The soundtrack of Easy Rider features some of the finest classic rock tunes from the 60s, such as Born to be Wild (Steppenwolf), Wasn’t Born to Follow (The Byrds) & If 6 Was 9 (Jimi Hendrix). It was reported that the licensing cost for the soundtrack was more than the film’s budget. The only film I can think of that has a comparably acclaimed soundtrack is American Graffiti (1973).

My favorite song from Easy Rider is Bird Song by The Holy Modal Rounders:
