THINK: We have an "educated" Neanderthal in the White House. He has no proper etiquette, and he can't carry on an intelligent conversation with anyone at anytime. Who would you rather have a conversation with....him or the construction worker?
I KNOW which one I'd choose!
In New Haven, at Yale, there are many beautiful buildings. The craftsmanship is beautiful, and I consider them works of art. The detail!!! My word, the skill that those craftsmen had, creating that with the tools that they had at the time is astonishing.
Now. Tell you what. Now adays I'm not impressed. Just like everything else, construction has gone fast track in the search for the almighty dollar. We are losing the craftsmanship of old, if we have not already lost it that is.
I have been working at the New Haven Art Gallery. I had a flash of understanding about a week or so ago.
In the courtyard, they are starting to put up their so called sculptures. I look at them and I'm sorry. I just don't see it.
Art is supposed to be something that inspires. It is supposed to make one wonder in amazement. What they have out there is garbage. If you would like, when I get a chance, I'll take a couple pictures. Hell, one of em looks like a giant piece of shit. Come to think of it, I think I will give that one a name myself. I will call it George Bush.
Anyway, I realized that almost all art form has gone this route. Music, art, theater/tv. Everything is like the now named George Bush. They are pieces of shit.
I guess that I have known it all along, but I didn't realize how powerful the truth of this was. Art in all its forms is a reflection of society. Just like the George Bush is to art, this is the reflection of society at this point. Just a bunch of shit. With a bunch of stupid shits running around.
Lol, I'm gonna stop now before I get on a roll. Having to much fun with this. (Pictures little Bushits running around)
Bah, like I said. No etiquette
