The PoMoNow Press Release turned out to be an utter failure with the press being missing from the scene entirely. The press was at another venue: the wedding of Viola Renegade. The editor of PoMoNow, Miz P, thinks that Viola arranged her wedding on the same date as the release date of the magazine in an attempt to spite P. The two had fought over the use of a white flower headband during her interview with PoMoNow.

Last weekend, visual artist, Holly Polyester, caused a frenzy in the art world by placing a urinal in the MoMA. Everywhere, people are talking about the audacity of this artist. Critics and audience are outraged. Famous critic, Steven Pinksom said, "By bringing in an object from the bathroom into the gallery, Ms. Polyester is encouraging everyone to basically pee on MoMA! What the nerve!" Soon after this comment was released, however, people young and old, gathered around the Museum of Modern Art to urinate on the museum's walls. Pinksom refused to make any comments regarding his initial comment.
Meanwhile, people are pouring in to see this radical work of "art" by the young artist. Can this be even called art? Fellow artist, Sister Liquor said, "The artist picked up a common urinal and signed her name on it and simply put it on display. I think it is a stroke of genius. I think this revolutionary piece will free us from the chains of post-modern and push us into the age of post-post-modern."
Is it time to change our name to PoPoMoNow?

Artist and environmental activist, Roberta Bitts, gets inspiration for her new project from the ghost of an artist, who is still alive
Roberta Bitts, the founder of the Green is the New Black Foundation, says that she found herself drowning in the dark sea of creative block while working on her latest project that involves making a giant Hello Kitty house out of crocheted yarn. She became an avid fan of the famous cat designed by Ikuko Shimizu after she came across a Hello Kitty 'Go Green' t-shirt, a part of the corporation's attempt to go green. She expressed deep admiration for such a big corporation that "doesn't really have to give a shit but they do, cause they are awesome and they care about the environment." Bitts has been working on this gargantuan project that is going to cost an estimate of $7 million for the past 6 months. The project came to a standstill after the first 2 months because of the artist's inability to channel her creative juju into the process of creating. However, in an exclusive interview with PoMoNow, expressed her plans to start up the project again due to recent experiences involving the spirit of an artist. Last month, the artist bought a collectible lunchbox featuring cartoonist Robert Crumb's creation, Devil Girl. After the purchase, Bitts realized that she was constantly surrounded by a celestial aura that she is convinced is the spirit or ghost of Crumb. Crumb, a founder of the Underground Comik movement, is still alive and currently resides in Southern France. When questioned on how the spirit of a living person can possibly haunt someone, Bitts told us that Crumb may be alive in body, but his spirit is dead and it talks to her at night. Bitts believes that this special situation has come about because of his incompatibility with his wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, who he has been married to since 1978. "His spirit will once again reunite with his body once I have rescued him from that bitch."
When asked about how the so-called spirit of Robert Crumb has helped her make progress in her project, the artist answered that she simply does not feel like what she is doing is trivial because the ghost of a famous artist has told her that the company Sanrio, responsible for making Hello Kitty an international phenomenon, is ultimately going to be responsible for saving the world from global warming with its green products. Sanrio declared that "Hello Kitty leads the go green campaign in her cool green overalls and nature-inspired adornment on her paws." This new line of merchandize includes jute tote bags, notebooks made of recyclable paper and soy ink, stainless steel coffee mug, etc. So far, Crumb's body has refused offer any comments regarding his supposed loss of soul.
