What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

"A demon from the pits of bitch cunt." -W.C. Hurst

"pulitzer for you too." -John Lurie

Get ready for Wednesday!

On Wednesday's edition of Needle Exchange with Penny Nickels, we'll be wrapping up our "Let's Talk About Sex" discussion with some contemporary artists, including the work of the lady pictured above. That's a hint! Mark your calendars!


  1. Bingo! I love that photo. There's four or so artists I want to discuss, but I'm running out of space!

  2. It's twice a long as last time! But I promise, I won't always hold the reader hostage with work counts.
