Yeah, but they must have done something else that was totally out of line to get Kirby to kick them out of the gallery... :?


Like forcing their way into an already crowded art gallery? Pushing people? Generally being disrespectful?

I know our openings can be a little crazy and a lot crowded, but in the end it is still an ART opening, not a free-for-all party...and it certainly is not a stage for roving bunnies. Most, if not all, the people that were at the opening were there to see the art, not listen to some guy dressed in a bunny suit play the trombone.

Kirby's like a loaded spring...that hates bunnys! Who's Hate for Bunnys is only eclipsed by Ryan's! And Ken was wearing his Killface.

not to expand upon the incident at the gallery but, mind you these were grown ass people dressed up in bunny suits, pushing and just having to get their message across...I don't think anybody agreed with what they were doing. If they were like say 16-18 years old, I would sort of be like ah, teenage angst, youth, blah blah blah, but when you're 30 and still trying to get attention in that manner, that just pisses me the hell off. Also to barge in on an opening, knowing that it's some else's artshow - it's his spotlight so why rain on his parade? LIKE GO GET A JOB HIPPY!

I think Kirby did the right thing because I was like five minutes away from punching one of the fat bunnies.

Otherwise, again the show looked awesome, right down to the paper mache letters!

Looks like a great show. Cograts dave! I wish I could have made it, but I had to attend a few openings with my art up also that night.

Everything looked great David, the stuff all went well together. I had a really good time! I liked the bunnys, not soo much the clean suit dorks.
