I don't think anyone needs to be reminded that artists are crazy people. Tom Miller is expanding that adage to extreme levels as he will attempt to stare at Ted Cruz's mouth for two hours tomorrow at 7:00 pm.
If artists are supposed to suffer for their work, then Tom Miller must be a genius.
Friday night, the Gainesville, Florida-based performance artist will attempt to go where few others dare by staring at Ted Cruz’s mouth for two hours straight.
“This is the most dangerous thing I’ve ever done,” Miller told The Huffington Post. “It’s like being caught on ‘It’s A Small World’ for two hours straight.”
Miller will be doing his two-hour “Ted Gawk” starting at 7 p.m. at the Hardback Cafe.
The 50-year-old artist will be on a stage staring at a giant photo of Cruz without breaking eye contact (blinking is allowed).
“People can attempt to interact with me, but I won’t be focusing on anything else but that smile,” he said. “Maybe someone will bring a beer to ease the pain.”
What a brave man, embarking upon a quest no one has ever returned from. Fuck one beer, get this guy a rack. As many of you know, gazing upon the face of the ultra conservative for more than a mere 2 minutes will turn you into this.
Ted, I am sorry to say this but your fucked man. There is almost 0 percent chance you win the republican nomination and for that matter, a general election for President. Your just too... how do I put this? Ugly, Slimy, Joe Marie-Like.
I could go on for hours. As much as I love your plan for world domination and eventual destruction, I just can not bear looking at you, or listening to you, or even acknowledging your presence.
Go back to the flaming seas of Valyria and live out the rest of yours days with your people wandering through the fog and your own madness until your skin turns to stone, you are paralyzed and die. The good news is that Grayscale is a slow developing disease so you'll have plenty of time to terrorize innocence merely seeking passage through the deserted lands of Valyria.
That was a hell of a run on sentence and Game of Thrones reference.
Tomorrow at 7 pm Tom Miller will be embarking on his quest at the Hardback Cafe in Gainesville, Florida. Make sure to tweet him support with the #GoTomGo or #MillerTime.
