They say in Hollywood the devil gets all the best roles...

I'd sell my soul to see Charlie paint the town red, although I'd prefer that some big shot producer stump up the cash, after all its not like he/she would have anything to lose.

Skipp's wonderful day-glow prose feels like it was exposed to the world when Max Renn preached 'long live the new flesh' to the tele-visual masses, before spilling his brains in a neon splash in David Cronenberg's masterpiece, Videodrome.

The cultural timing many of by a couple of decades but that's the money shot and I stand by my mutational context.

Art is truly the Devil, with a wicked Jack Nicholson grin.

HASH(0x94e20690) out of 5 stars A dark and witty canvas... 3 Jan. 2013
By Shiney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I will start with an admission, I am a rabid Skipp fanboy. That is not to say that I whole-heartedly love everything he has ever churned out. There are a few things, that while I enjoyed them, I was not giddy with psychotic frenzy upon completion. But let's get on to ART IS THE DEVIL.

This is satire. High caliber-funny-as-a-rubber-crutch-hit-the-mark satire. Skipp points a bloody finger at the art snobs, the celebrities, the hangers-on and pretty much most of the Hollywood coolios in this short work. Two pretentiously obnoxious chicks wait to see the Charlie Sheen artwork exhibit, but their plans change after a chance encounter with an odd little man and an invite to his "true art" exhibit later that night.

As you'd expect from Skipp, this is rife with witty commentary, buckets of gore and a liberal dose of ridiculous logic. But above all else. It's f***ing fun. FUN!

HASH(0x94f6b6b4) out of 5 stars Screams to be Filmed 4 Jan. 2013
By Peter J. Giglio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love John Skipp's stuff. All of it. But this is the best thing he's written in years. "Art is the Devil" is a hilarious satire that horror fans and anyone who has spent any time in Hollywood will enjoy enormously. Leave it to Skipp to pack more entertainment into a short story than most do in an entire novel, and all for a buck. I really want to see this as a film. So what are you waiting for? Buy it now!

I've read funnier stories. The best comedy author I've come across so far is Andersen Prunty. So off (I am) to discover another!!!
HASH(0x95053fcc) out of 5 stars Painting with words like a Tiger-Blooded Warlock 28 Mar. 2013
By Sheldon Nylander - Published on Amazon.com

"Art is the Devil" is a short story by John Skipp that takes a satirical look at the art community. Well, maybe more specifically the art community in Los Angeles. Pretentiousness be thy name. It has a dark humor (very dark) that readers of bizarro fiction will love, although it could be off-putting to someone who is not familiar with bizarro or John Skipp. He engages in some rather in-your-face commentary, but there's also a more subtle layer of commentary that you'll need to dig for. What is the truth of art? Who can explain this truth? You'll have to read to find out. Quick and entertaining. At 99 cents, you can't go wrong here. Have at it!
HASH(0x9505e0cc) out of 5 stars "Tiger Blood".............. 22 Jan. 2013
By Buckeye Nick - Published on Amazon.com

Yes we all know the cliche winning and other Charlie Sheen phrases we could use but this little story was a great bizarro fun filled romp. Somehow I always knew Charlie Sheen had something to do with Hell but not in this way. This was a great little gem by Splatterpunk pioneer and bizarro madman John Skipp. He always has a way of entertaining me not only though his words but I love how he always infuses some type of pop culture into his stories. I can't wait to get me some more Skipp soon hopefully he has a new novel coming out soon that we can get excited about, until then this little gem will have to do.
