Look, whether you’re into it or not, Valentine’s Day is coming up fast. Some people think it’s fun, some people think it’s dumb, either way it’s on Sunday and there’s nothing you can do about that. If you’re in the market for putting asymptotically close to zero amount of thought into your V-Day charades, allow me to help. You can peruse our past postings of incredible/fun/witty Valentines made by student artists, or you can check out (and print!) these garbage ones I made just for you. Whatever floats your trash.
Cute: Well, you know, relatively. Like there’s a nice little pun on the front, and the message inside is nice, but overall this Valentine looks horrid, but I don’t see you doing any better so quit hassling me.
Gay: Some are, some aren’t. It doesn’t really matter of course. Nothing does.
Real?: look i don’t care go scrape the bottom of the barrel and see what you find.
If you want to print them, go for it: stitch valentinegay worse
Back in the day, a guy in my class and his buddy, a year ahead, stood on Middle Path every Valentine’s Day and handed out roses to all the Kenyon women. Hundreds of them. If you’re out there, Billy and Steven, thank you. Happy Valentine’s.
BTW, “Islamic contemporary” was a blog I once had about contemporary art in the Middle East. I can’t change the name. Sorry about that.
