Two videos – everything wrong with modern art, Abby Johnson destroys Cecile Richards October 1, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Art and Architecture, Basics, contraception, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, sickness, Society.
I like this video on all the problems with modern (and post-modern) art. The abandonment of artistic standards has led to the near total collapse of the production of quality, timeless art. I think it also emblematic of the decadence and moral corruption of the West, that tacky, cheap, boring, unskillful, offensive, and just plain crap that my 3rd grader could better is now promoted as “fine art.” Give me a break:
A couple of things – do you remember the movie “Dead Poet’s Society?” There is a pivotal scene that repeats itself, having to do with a textbook that teaches a means of “rating” the relative merits of different poems. The new liberal teacher, played by Robin Williams, is horribly offended at this notion, believing that poetry is so sublime it is beyond any kind of ratings or metrics. He teaches his students to rip that section of the textbook out. Later on, this becomes sort of his triumph.
But is that really right? Are there not means by which various poets and poems could be rated against each other? Is writing in a very technical meter, and pulling it off with rhyme, rhythm, and deep meaning, a greater achievement than a few lines scrawled in a haiku? Is the Illiad greater than some of EE Cummings later trash? Does Shakespeare not trump the contemporary schlock called poetry we are dished up? Or Blake or Wordsworth or Coleridge, for that matter?
The same applies to the visual arts. It is perhaps true that the governing academies of the late 19th century had become a bit too rigid and stale, but throwing off ALL restraint and ANY founding principles has led art down the garbage drain of boring, thoughtless, derivative trash. And I think it right to cast a bit of blame at the Impressionists on this, because they started the revolution, even though their own works were great achievements in their own right.
Second video, kind of boring but a for-the-record type entry, Abby Johnson obliterates Cecile Richards. I’m quite certain my sophomore daughter could do so even more thoroughly, but she’ll never have the cache of having worked at Planned Butcherhood:
Meh: Cecile Richards, head of an organization responsible for tens of millions of murders (for profit), lies. Shocking, I know.
A couple of what the heck videos. There is so little footage of the incredibly charismatic Gram Parsons. Here is one of the better bits. Groovy man. Somebody please pin Chris Hillman to the ground and shave his head, sheesh.
From the same shoot in support of the first Flying Burrito Brother album. Such a shame Gram couldn’t put together more than about 6 consecutive clean months the last 10 years of his life. When he did wow was he prodigiously talented. [FAIR WARNING – GRAM TOOK THE IDEA OF A “NUDIE SUIT” A BIT TOO FAR]:
