A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Wife Swapping

I have a confession to make. Ever since the monumental "darksided" episode of Trading Spouses aired, I've been hooked. I know that it's among the most crass, exploitative reality shows out there, but c'mon! Everybody's family looks bananas when exposed to the harsh light of day. Maybe they should do a companion show where fathers are exchanged....I have a feeling that they would all just avoid the stress by hanging out in the garage. Maybe nobody would notice. My revealing this information to you DOES have a point (beyond being an excercise self-humiliation). This Friday, Trading Spouses will air an episode in which craft book author Silvana Clark is traded to a family of bail bondsmen in Montana. From the preview, it seems like fun-foam worshipping Silvana tries a little bit too hard to get the new family to step up to the craft plate. Silvana's 16-year old daughter Sondra has SIX craft books under her own belt. Maybe the new mommy will inspire her to combine her love of craft with bounty hunting....but that'd be stepping on my turf.
