To my artistic palate, the above painting is simply "better" than the one below. It's simply "more elegantly simple". It's more interesting. It's pastel colours have a calming effect. The one below is annoying to look at. It looks like it was done by a 7 year old.



The top one was done by an elephant named "Sri Siam".

The bottom one was done by some dude named Marek Petryk, an artist.

I think the elephant has potential.

This statement is really bothersome. Anyone with all your hats and that silly accordion must surely imbibe on occasion.

If it bothers you, then you must have understood it better than me.

If I don't understand something that's said, I don't spend a lotta time trying to figure it out. I figure if it doesn't mean anything, then whomever said it probably never meant for it to mean anything.

It's exactly the same thing with art. If I can't understand it, then I figure whomever made it didn't mean for it to be understood. So I don't waste time trying to figure it out.

That's how I look at modern art.

Default well

I'm sorry you misunderstood. I said the dog had a green coat in the bathroom...and it had nothing to do with the accordian.

I was having a moment of spammer from somewheres else.,,therin lies the confusion.

And Nestor, certainly you kid when you say you do not read things to understand them better,even when they make no sense, that is simply not in your nature.

If I read something, and I figure it would make sense if I read it more carefully, then that's exactly what I do... read it over again more carefully.

But, if I read something like this:

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me help me
Oh no no... no

Well, then I just kinda move on to something else.
Reading that more carefully a second time won't do no good.

Those lyrics only make sense if you're as high on LSD when you hear them as Hendrix was when he wrote them.

Next i guess you will tell us that the Beatles song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds wasn't about a girl who worked in a jewelry store...

He's talking about smoking Marijauna.

No it was about a picture drawn by Lennon's first child and Written by McCartney while they were all on LSD. See it's not about LSD.

Although...
