I have the weirdest boner right now.
 
2012-11-11 08:38:14 AM  
That looks a lot like every afternoon for me, except that I use my penis instead of a prosthesis, and I use it with the fervent urgency and inner rage of the Samsonite gorilla.

Well; By Gawd, My 8th grade media team will be performing this at the next "Performing Arts" fair.

Looks like some kinda trip to a gay mental institution. I did ok until the dude started slamming his wang on the clothes rack. Then i larfed. Until then, it just struck me as gay. Well..the whole thing was gay actually.
 
2012-11-11 08:48:34 AM  
Ah, I see - "Artists" being "artsy."

Actually, I don't think I can put that in enough quotations....
 
2012-11-11 08:48:44 AM  
I'm ok with the fact that I'm one of the people that doesn't "get it".

I'm not a fan of the lowest common denominator. I don't watch Pawn Stars, listen to today's hot country, or laugh at Tyler Perry. But I'd rather watch every single episode ever filmed of Reba than sit through an entire performance of... whatever that was. I'd rather listen to Larry the Cable Guy do a 10 hour interview with Rachael Ray than hear the creator of that describe what it represents. I'd rather go McDonalds with the cast of Glee than talk to someone in that audience.

The important thing is that you've found a way to feel superior to all of them.

Dude - I'm pretty sure that can be classified as a war crime...

2012-11-11 10:22:40 AM  
And this would be a good example of why I gravitated to the sciences and not the arts.

/In high school a classmate committed suicide. A girl I knew wrote a lengthy poem to describe her feelings about it. When I read the poem I told her that I didn't get it, and after lengthy discussion she said: "His death really upsets me". Why use 500 words to express something when five will do?

I thought this was a very powerful commentary regarding the effect of the French colonialism on the socioeconomic potential of southeast Asian orphans, particularly the female orphans.

Very insightful. Nice find, subby.
 
2012-11-11 10:29:05 AM  
more of the first half of a second please.
 
2012-11-11 10:30:31 AM  
I defy someone to show me a piece of performance art with *any* merit, beyond a chance to let these artists feel superior to the average person for not "getting it"
 
2012-11-11 10:31:08 AM  
and the taxpayers are probably funding this "art"

fark public funding...

How did you get a hold of my family dinner time video?

Do The Yes Men count as performance art?

I'd rather see thousands of dollars of tax money paying for this stuff than billions for additional military hardware that even the military doesn't want. If you're going to biatch about wasted tax monies, it helps to A) pick something that is actually a waste (which is definitely up for discussion when it comes to art) and B) would actually make a difference if funding were stopped. Biatching about tax money being spent on this would be like suggesting that someone should save money by switching to regular milk in their coffee instead of half & half, while completely ignoring the fact that they only drink Kopi Luwak (~$160/lb).
 
2012-11-11 11:42:54 AM  
Yeah, pretty much that's the kind of shiat that got me to drop out of art school. A professor might give you a project to, say, paint a still life using just three colors; Black, Yellow, White. There was always some dick headed "performance artist" who would return to class naked, covered in honey, and the words "Black Yellow White" written all over them in Sharpie. (Oh not that exact thing, mind you, but very, very similar, I just made that up) (hmm... Maybe I should write for a grant from the NEA, bet I could get a cool $25k to do that!)

Performance "artists" are the biggest, mind bogglingly obvious scammers in the history of art. I mean staggeringly, glaringly obvious in taking people's money and producing complete shiat. "I'm going to cover myself in MEAT and walk around New York! I'm going to take pigs and write calligraphy all over them!" Oh yeah, bravo champ. I'm farking impressed. Here, let me take a piss on your head. No no no, it's not a critique. It's art.
 
2012-11-11 12:02:31 PM  
I've seen this before as well and yeah, it's mind-boggling.
If I had to guess, I'd say it's a commentary on the difficulties people with disabilities go through. I mean, if I was paralyzed from the waist down, I'd probably slam my junk into metal poles just for some stimulation, too.
Is it art? Sure, if you had any kind of emotional reaction to it. Is it good art? *shrug* they put a lot of work into... whatever it is. Would I go see it? Nah, I'll opt out.

Just about any city you go to has useless art installations by some idiot that stuck a couple of steel beams in random directions, called it "Courage" or something, and was paid a million dollars to do it. Art doesn't have to be of something, but if one is able to use a little imagination, it should at least be about something. I think some artists get too caught up in their own little mental universes and forget that others don't have access to their line of thinking or their intense imaginations and end up making something that only makes sense to them. Then they wonder why no one gets their art.

let me put it in a way that you can understand... being a long time musician and a business owner i see both sides of the coin. If people want something they will pay for it, Public television, music, the arts, public radio. If it's worth an actual $ amount people will pay for it. If we as taxpayers have to subsidize something that 15 people will enjoy IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!! Commercial entities (businesses or consumers) will pay the bill by way of capitalist voting. the way it is meant to be

As for $ spent on military equipment that they don't want is off base, someone thinks it's needed and it's someone who has the power to say PURCHASE made the call.

Most of the arts would not survive without public funding. And "not for profit" means just that.

But these institutions are surrounded by for profit businesses that generate a great deal of money and tax revenue.

Just try to close down Lincoln Center and see what happens to the local economy.

I'm not trying to troll by asking, I want to clarify before I get into this; are you serious or trolling with that last line? ['the 500 word.. when five will do]

What this really needs is interviews of the audience and their thoughts about the performance.

I don't think they could provide more insights after watching entire show than farkers who watched posted video
 
2012-11-11 02:07:11 PM  
The fact that the performance has gotten so much sand in you all's collective vaginas means it's art. Whether you like it or not.
