    That's pretty crazy, even if its something small. Even Kevin Pollak tweeted congrats to Opie.

    Some videographers work their whole careers to get featured there. This gives him cred for producing things in the future.

    I wonder what the angle is going to be? A celebration of trolling in the city streets? Is an art scholar/ O&A fan behind this?

    He's the next stanley kubrik... telling fat negro traffic cops that they're too fat to drink slushies.

    the only artsy opie video that immediately comes to mind to me think of is the one where he wears a hood and talks like Chistian Bale's Batman

    that doesnt make sense here....it sounds like they're choosing to feature his silly/weird/trashy videos that he has already made rather than him attempting to go out and shoot stuff for an art crowd.

    perhaps it is just a collection of behind the scenes moments with celebrities.

    or a retrospective on retards like BoBo and Vos

    I meant that Opie frequents places like MoMA and bought a nice condo in a "yuppie" neighborhood to get away from the fact that he's white trash. He's brought up the museum a few times on the show.

    So people of humble origins can't rise above it? Your world view sucks.

    do you think he's being pretentious having a place close to work and going to a modern art museum? i think he's in a nice zone where he wants to pick up some basic culture (as in something other than dickjokes), but is well aware of what over the top yuppieism is, considering the way he speaks of his neighbors. i'm pretty relieved when he bashes them in very specific terms.

    i dont think anyone associated with the show can get away from the white trashness of their pasts and basic personalities.

    i think in opie's case buying a nice apartment was a no-brainer move when he did it, as both a living necessity and an investment. he's said he wants a real house with property soon so im sure thats the next step.


    well, that museum is one of the more interesting places to go in the city. opie has made it clear that he can live well without being extravagant. his place costs a lot obviously, but when you heard about his most recent car breaking down, its clear he prefers to live in a zone where he only gets what he needs.

    Dont get me wrong, I love the guys. But dont try to be something your clearly not. This is why I respect Anthony so much, he knows what he came from and he's able to look back still be himself despite his success.

    Nobody got you wrong. You're an ass.

    In your world since my dad was a foundry worker I should have stayed in that fucking factory running a turret lathe doing the same boring movements eight hours a day and never tried college or a shirt-and-tie job.

    Quit trying to be cutely pretentious with your Opie-bashing. It's not working.

    Once again, I agree. Stay in your social class, the world needs more lathe workers than it needs heirs to a big plumbing company. Trust me, I do know my place. Sorry I hurt your feelings, not sarcasm.

    Hurt my feelings? That little rejoinder typifies your inability to comprehend what makes the man and is the perfect example of your poor aim. Trust me, a twerp like you can't hurt me in any way. I've always known my place ... climbing the ladder to a comfortable existence, an educated environment, and some modicum of cultural stimulation.

    And the question has been begged: Are the boys a source of culture? :)

    This is known as Outsider Art. Like when they do an exhibit by a retarded kid that eats candy and drools on a canvas in different colors.

    The videos appear to be part of a project called myblockNYC.com. From their website:

    His tweet gave the impression that this is some exclusive Opie's Flipcam exhibit... Which is like claiming you're in the motion picture industry because you've uploaded a few videos to YouTube

    Who knows, maybe what he shows to us slobs is half his work and the other half is some beautiful, The Tree of Life type shit.

    Or it could be in conjunction with that Day in the Life movie coming out soon.

    Sorry...disagree.

    There is certainly an aura of excitement in his post, but I don't get some arrogant exclusive attitude from him.

    Opie likes to think of his vids as a mix between Tree of Life and Observe and Report.
