  • So F.A.M.E. stands for Female Artists are Mostly Excluded?

  • stop being such a fuckin square – this is called “fun” maybe you should look that word up finally

    Dear Patricia and whatever,
    The commissioners at the league of F.A.M.E. do hope that this project is able to reveal something about the contemporary art world (All players have the ability to choose any artist they like ie. there is no set list).
    For instance Switchblade Sisters chose an all female team (see image) and (see score)
    We also are having “fun” in the spirit of competition. So let’s keep it “fun” and let’s not get too vicious
    Good Luck,

    Furthermore, the facts for this weeks scoring category revealed that there were a significant number of women artists who would have not only scored very big, but could have carried a whole team had they been started. The scoring results will be posted on Saturday, and we will have additional comments regarding unused and even undrafted artists. Stay tuned!

  • COCO-BOB is killing it!
