Pimps of death

I went to the Glitter and Doom exhibit at the Met this morning (urged, as I was, by my drawing teacher, who said that I, specifically, would like this very much (and I did)). Beyond some really wonderful paintings and drawings by the likes of Max Beckmann and the hilarious Otto Dix (who would have been a pretty cool guy to hang out with, one gets the feeling), we noticed that some of these artists came up with great names for their works which would fit quite nicely as band or album names. The title of this post, for example — wouldn’t it be an excellent name for a twee Scottish indie pop band? The best, however, was “I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me From Being the Master” (an album title, obviously), courtesy of the diabolical genius George Grosz.
