Banksy and Hirst Show Us How To Make "Real Art"

I'll go ahead and kick this off with a work by Two of the biggest names in Contemporary Art:  Banksy putting a stencil on top of  Damien Hirst's patented polka dots.  More than likely an outside party was commissioned to paint the exposed canvas frame if not the whole thing.
The work is titled "Keeping it Spotless" and sold for $1, 870, 000.00 at Sotheby’s in New York on Valentine’s Day, 2008. Not a shabby price! Bono and Gagosian Gallery were also involved in The (RED) Auction held for the United Nations Foundation to support HIV/AIDS relief programs in Africa conducted by The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.  Isn't it cute?

Let the adventure begin!

Blah Blah Blanton will cover a wide variety of topics. Sound Art, Max/Msp/Jitter, Audio Engineering, Mixing, Mastering, Noise music, Pop culture, Street Art, High Art, Collaborations on Projects, The Pains of Heritage Texas, American, and that of general humanity. Their will be videos, music, poetry, stories, the uncommon and oh so common things that appear on a blog...
 There are many things I appreciate which I wish to name,  I am going to attempt to try to share highmusic as opposed to what is popular.  I may succumb to blabbering about the news. I may even be outdated at times.  So any how, here goes throwing the paint at the wall and seeing what chips get eaten.
