Nite Moves -- and Steve Barnes -- on the Colbert Report


Heh. The Colbert Report last night recognized Nite Moves owner Stephen Dick as a "difference maker" for his fight to have stripping regarded as an art form. For tax purposes. So he wouldn't have to pay a lot of back taxes.

Steve Barnes plays a prominent role in the segment, lending his expertise in art criticism. And what it's like to have breast sweat smeared on your glasses. (Steve says over at Table Hopping that he's "generally pleased" with how his appearance turned out.)

As you know, Nite Moves recently lost its case before the state's highest court in a 4-3 decision.

Lousy art is still art!

The richness of the Capital District arts makes it into the NATIONAL spotlight!!! Oh... wait a minute...

For fans of bad art, check out the Museum of Bad Art.

This reminds me of US v. Larry Flynt. Sleazy guy with a reasonable point.

Also, this part of the show caught me by surprise and I nearly died laughing.

Way to represent, SB! Holla!

I'm not "that" sleazy. You're just stereotyping me.
