The Art of the Porno Burrito.
Do you smell what the Monster is cooking? That’s 13 inches of straight up burro con carne asada. (Photos by C-M.)

Last year, my L.A. homegirl Vidalia introduced me to the grotesque spectacularness of the Porno Burrito, El Atacor’s legendary mac daddy burro, a sculptural assemblage of beans, rice, meat, guacamole and pico de gallo that weighs as much as a small dog. Vidalia and I had taken on the burrito in the past. But last night we did it again. And because we had one too many drinks in us, we decided to order two. We only made it through one, even though we split it three ways with Celso. But because I hate to waste a good Porno, today, Celso and I devoured the second (after taking lots of pictures).

How do we feel after inhaling this monster? Something along the lines of this.

Click on images to supersize. Many more after the jump.

Mass jumping at MoMA tonight!!! Beginning at 6:30 p.m. (MoMA’s Twitter.)
The MOCA Mess: Roberta Smith says everyone needs to step to the plate, including rich artists (“you know who you are,” she writes) and not-so-rich folks, who might be able to donate $100 or $1,000. Plus: L.A.T. columnist Tim Rutten calls for a house cleaning. (Modern Art Notes.)
Francis Bacon’s dying wish.
Art21’s blog is exploring the topic of controversy in contemporary art this month. (The video at the bottom of this piece, in which students discuss the work of Kara Walker, is fascinating.) There are other posts, too: on self-consciousness and controversy, and willful controversy (which addresses the Turner Prize and the YBAs).
Relational aesthetics, Flickr edition.

Jeff Koons, thespian.
I’m curious to see how this experiment fares: The Brooklyn Museum is creating a subscription-only Twitter art feed called 1stfans. Cost: $20. The incentive: 1stfans who turn out for the museum’s First Saturday event on Jan. 3 can get a free Swoon print, just B.Y.O paper. (Hrag Vartanian.) Related: Museums and Twitter.
National Academy sells paintings to pay the light bill. More here.
At the Basel Frazzle: An informal Herald survey reveals that sales mostly dropped or were flat. Sort of related: At CIFO Art Space, the art was in the interrogation. And a report on the fair’s largest piece, which in case you’re wondering, was a bell. Plus: because what Miami needs is another private museum, this time from real estate developer Craig Robins.

WYSE and NEKST seriously redo a WK Interact mural in Miami. 
Street art as puzzle: El Autotono. (Ekosystem.)
Christopher Hawthorne on L.A. Live, the city’s latest crap-ass megadevelopment project: “…their architecture is fundamentally not really architecture at all but an extensive series of armatures on which the developer and its tenants can hang logos, video screens and a sophisticated range of lighting effects.”
David Chipperfield addition for the St. Louis Museum of Art is on hold due to the economic downturn.
Felt architecture.
The Skyline looks at how design and infrastructure upgrades will intersect under the incoming Obama administration. My personal plea to Obama: Please start with the nation’s airports. They are an embarrassment.

5 Incredible Works of Insane Architectural Genius: Wooden Skyscrapers to Recycled Wonderlands
How many people does it take to envision, design and build a typical building? Architects, builders, carpenters, laborers are often just the beginning of a long list of co-creators. Well, these bizarre exceptions were each primarily the work of a single eccentric individual and in many cases took decades (or even lifetimes) to construct. Despite having this essential factor in common the ultimate built outcomes range significantly in style, execution, materiality and purpose.
