That was also very nice. Thanks.

Rip off? Would you also say that Michelangelo "ripped off" cave men because they painted on ceilings first?

Going through the names reminds me of how many farkers weren't able to renew, and those that made it to Sanctuary.

I used to dream of making it to Sanctuary, but I think my lifeclock is running out, and my best hope is for renewal.

Listen guys, don't nobody tell Sylvia_Bandersnatch this is a repeat, she just all capped down everyone in the cement mixer thread.

When she comes in here, just go about your business, whistle, act nonchalant, maybe call out Amos Quito on his anti-semitism, ya know, usual Saturday night why are we at FARK stuff.

Still a good excuse to point out that communism killed some 14.5 million people during the Collectivization/"De-Kulakization" period that included the Ukrainian famine (i.e., the Holodomor).

Nevermind that it's a repeat....

I don't know... she's incredibly talented, and her work is awesome.. but what she draws, combined with the sound effects, it's just so absurdly Bohemian and cliched... "Look at me! I'm an artist! BAM BAM BAM I'm doing all this artsy stuff"....

I can't put my finger on it... it's wonderful to look at but at the same time there's something so absurdly cliched about it.

Actually there are several artists doing this. It's turned into a fairly popular story telling method in some places.

First of all, the complaints about repeats are FAR more irritating than any repeat can be by itself. Please stop this, everyone who's doing it. If the point is to shame the subby, then that's pointless, since modmins make the call. If you're attacking the subby as proxy, then man up already and take it to the modmins directly by private email. If you don't feel that's called for, then neither is the public complaint.

Second, until I see a four-hour, major-sponsored prime-time film treatment of it, that makes headlines all over the world, it will NEVER be time to stop talking about the Holomodor. The death toll was horrific, and it's a shamless scandal that this isn't taught with the same candor and weight as the Holocaust. No, they are not the same thing, and in many ways not even similar, but both are very serious object lessons in the Evil That Men Do. And while we're at it, maybe we could bother to mention the Cambodian genocide by the Khmer Rouge, too?

I think you might be making the mistake of comparing it to American art expression, which is often allegorical or metaphorical. A great deal of European art expression is more literal, more overt, more dramatic and demonstrative. To compare the delivery directly to American styles of expression is not fair. Also not fair because it's quite likely that this artist has some personal and fairly close connection to the events depicted, as many Europeans do. A great many people alive at the time still are, and I'd even expect some to be in that audience.

Fair enough. I guess some of the older people that were tearing up fall into that category. To me it seems like she's exploiting tragedy for an overly dramatic performance, but like you said there's a difference in art styles, so... fair enough.

The Holomodor is a recent historical event, postdating WW2. And because it affected millions of people, it continues to be raw in the minds of many people today. This happened to people of my parents' generation, and they personally knew survivors and relatives of survivors. I personally know the children and relatives of children of the surivivors, including the person I'm closest to in the world. This is not a remote event for me at all, nor for many other Americans. What you see as drama is the real emotion that's still coursing throught the large segment of the world's living population that was directly or nearly affected by this. There are many Holomodor survivors still alive today, more than a few here in the U.S. So while I perceive that your own perspective probably has to do more with art styles, it's not about that at all for many others, and not for me.

Wow, someone on Fark actually knows about Holodomor.

Yeah, it's a travesty that one genocide is elevated to pseudo-religious status while others are ignored - or worse.

Compare ANY other event in human history with The Holocaust and prepare to be attacked.

But if it makes you feel any better, the Armenian Genocide is equally ignored - by both the US AND Israel, LOL!

The Holocaust is a valuable tool that is constantly used as both sword and shield by Zionists and their supporters. Other genocides are intentionally ignored for fear that the will detract from the "uniquely evil" nature of that event.

I for one am glad this was greenlighted again. The last time I was watching this, I was with my friend Barney, and we got in this horrible accident in which our brontosaurus rear ended a flightless pterodactyl. Betty was inconsolable. I never got to see the end until today.

Gurf, post > pre. Must not mix readin'/writin' with computer work.

Anyway, a few others have made the very valid point that it's unreasonable to set one or two events as inherently much 'worse' than others, especially others of the same period. All these events were horrific, all deserve equal time, and all have much to teach us that is hopefully valuable to know and understand for those who follow.

I thought that might be it; I doubted you really had your dates confused. But I disagree with calling something that happened 80 years ago "recent history." The vast majority of people who would be old enough to remember that event have passed on.

I now suspect you were wrong 3 times in the same sentence and really *did* think this was post WWII.
