R Dot Gets a Rave From The Old Gray Lady

For the artist living in today's world of drive-thru liquor stores and instant tapioca, there is nothing quite like having one's brilliance recognized by an esteemed and venerable institution of criticism. While Serious Lunch is unfamiliar with such accolades thus far, a certain Robert Sylvester Kelly is not. Chapters 13-22 of the Trapped in the Closet series was reviewed in today's New York Times Arts Section, and it stops just short of calling the new chapters brilliant.

I will not stop short. I say 'brilliant' without a speck of irony or sarcasm. They are that good.

Basically if you don't think they're at least 'awesome' we can't hang out no more. For reals.
