I hate this
Hate this? Half of you shit stains with this opportunity would totally do it.
well of course we hate this, someone else thought of it before we could
Ugh. I hate modern art.
Seriously. There IS skill involved, but it’s not skill with a chisel or paintbrush or piano or typewriter. Modern artists are master orators [fancy for ‘master bullshitter’]- they can sell you a bridge, and often do in order to make a living. I’m not saying they’re conmen, but their entire career revolves around throwing together something bushleague, absurd, obscene, or just plain not there (see above), often with little actual effort put in, and then they come up with these deeply moving speeches and statements to make you praise it. I suppose that can be art in and of itself- Oratory goes back to Ancient Rome and was a skill for poets and politicians alike- but…Actually, that is why I hate it so much. Modern artists are like fucking politicians, a bunch of hot air and only strange, not-what-you-expected-or-wanted products to show for it.
