My work often uses transgressive themes which contain nudity.If you are under 18 or feel you may be offended by this, please leave the site now. Thank you.

Oliver stone ski's with his brand name protege.
This text piece came from an interview of Oliver Stone by Russel Brand, in which the self promoting comedian compared himself to Rasputin. Mr Stone was somewhat dismissive of Brand, saying that he had never ski'd naked and on cocaine. Correcting him on the term 'Arriviste', which was a backhanded compliment. I found it amusing that Brand saw being called this a compliment, as well as being compared to Rasputin.
The initial theme was about ego and personality worship.
