this just happens to put a new spin on the punch line to your location information Life. I can't quite read it the same way anymore. Laughing

Shocked Brain cannot reconcile this paradox and is now experiencing it's own blue screen of death.

Fear cannot stand up to logic, yet logic flees before fear. And rock beats fear.

Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and, as always, rock crushes scissors.

Sorry. Had to.

All art is quite useless.

Thrawn and myself disagree.

If you don't like art, well think about it this way. Even a bad painting can burn nicely and keeps you warm, you can use a small statue as a hammer, bad music to scare away predators,..... Razz

Not useless at all.

Movies, music, books, comics, these are all art forms. Anything done for entertainment purposes is done in an art form, whether it is deserving of the word or not. So you can't enjoy a movie or a song or a book while still thinking art is useless because it is just someone creating something. You may not enjoy paintings or drawings, but others do. Some don't enjoy movies, but others do. It just depends on the person but all people love at least some form of art.

This entire forum wouldn't exist without art. That's what Star Wars is.

this. Putting my Indy Fedora on art in one form or another is one of the primary ways we identify cultures and understand how past groups understood or related to the world they lived in. That's not just for the old mummies and guys that died 5,000 years ago, it also applies to our immediate ancestors from the 19th century or even earlier. Take your favorite coffee mug for example, the glazed pattern or even the physical way the clay was molded is art and will give an archaeologist of the future a glimpse into our lives and tell them a bit about our culture. (Remember even a mass produced ceramic coffee mug had to have a photographer or artist design the original image).

Or think about how you know what group you want to/don't want to hang out based on whether they are wearing something like the a t-shirt with the artwork/logo of your favorite band. We actually use art on everyday objects to asert membership in a group or just to say something about our individual identity.

It doesn't have to be a great work of art to say something about a culture or the past. Unless we want to get all stuffy and say unless it is worthy of being displayed next to a piece by Da Vinci it isn't art. But that would be a whole other ball game.

Whoa, lots of response.

"All art is quite useless" is a quote from Oscar Wilde. Who in my opinion is one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

It is supposed to be tongue in cheek. Razz

I never really understood the expression "tongue in cheek." I mean, I know what it means, but try saying something with your tongue in your cheek. You can't. Not well anyways.

Well thanks to Taral, I looked up the origin of that saying. The origin is that people would stick their tongue into their cheek as an expression of contempt. Has nothing to do with talking while poking your cheek with your tongue Razz
