[QUOTE=(what's a "chooch"? I could use that word)
Regards - Ross[/QUOTE]
I'm not sure if Frotog meant what I think he meant, but his use of the word chooch was very interesting to me too. In my experience, "chooch" comes for the Italian dialectical slang word "ciuccio" for donkey or mule, which is usually used to refer to someone as an idiot. It's altogether possible that Frotog simply meant "kook".
As for Crewdson, his stuff is a bit too plasticky for me, but I do find the sheer scale of preparation required for his constructs to be interesting.
