Then WTF was your intent, Mr. Artist?
 
2012-11-27 12:32:20 AM
Yeah, one of them's a brown skinned guy promising help and health for the poor, proper taxation for the rich, and tolerance for all members of society.

The other was Jesus.

See how the old guy is trying to catch one of Fartbama's farts? It's like he's wafting it into his nostrils, like a fine wine. And all the other old guys are pointing to the homeless person saying, "What about this guy? He needs farts, too!"

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who immediately thought that. Its like the artist has realized half the truth. If he could only have visualized putting the bongos in the painting, he would have captured the very essence of the Fartbongo.

Unlike Jamie Foxx the blasphemer, who DID compare him to God. Apparently Jamie never read this:

"On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, 'The voice of a god and not of a man!'
And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died." (Acts 12:21-23)

Let hope those worms chew fast.

Sarcasm from a comedian is often lost on those who cannot grasp subtlety

Seriously, the only references to Obama the Messiah in the past few years have been coming from the
radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party.

The radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party is so damn stupid and so damn caught up in delegitimizing the
President, they can't grasp the concept that it is "they" who were the target of mockery by Jamie Foxx

Crucifixion was limited to the lowest of the low criminals, slaves and trouble makers in Roman society. If you were crucified, it's because Rome didn't want to take the time to make your punishment more severe. Just let you linger and suffer and let the vultures get you.

So you're comparing Obama to a criminal. I like your newsletter and wish to subscribe.

Funny how God hasn't given a wet fart about blasphemy since then.


I actually asked that very question about blasphemy to my childhood pastor years ago (Southern Baptist). He told me that God DOES strike down the wicked blasphemers, but sometimes it takes decades for them to die. But he assured me they suffered the whole time. That's the current belief on the matter.

Clearly I am no longer a religious person.

The butthurt crowd could be misinterpreting the symbolism of the crown of thorns.
Maybe it's just a song reference...


I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair

Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Here is a list of couple hundred of Obama's achievements. Link

The only thing funny about them is the GOP butthurt that resulted.

Let's assume that Obama is a complete joke (somehow) despite all the evidence to they contrary. Who do you hold up as an example of a President (or Presidential Administration) being more serious, more mature than his?

I burst out laughing when I noticed the soldier eating the gay wedding cake. He came to the wedding, so obviously he supports the couple. And he's prepared to fight for them. He just doesn't care for fondant icing.

Hahaha and I just noticed the florescent light bulb. Which obviously means that Obama is against lampshades. Also, I gather that he's against golf.

Yeah, I know about the rollovers available on the artist's website, but a work of art has to stand on its own and he can't control the meanings I derive what he paints. Semiotics, biatches.

Real Good art* wouldn't need an explanation. The fact he has to explain what he means speaks volumes about the quality of his "statement".

*I think technically this McNaughton's crap qualifies as "art", just not very good art.

I think Jamie Fox is an idiot for plenty of other actually good reasons.

And I tend to think less of people who don't intrinsically understand that most things that come out of a comedian's mouth- particularly when he's "on the job" is intended as humor- an endeavor that usually involves storytelling devices such as "farce".

And no, I don't think it's funny either. See the first sentence.

Remember when bad art was just...bad art? And, remember when we used to sneer at bad art for things like using really heavy-handed trolling masquerading as 'symbolism' about a controversial subject? We used to laugh at it because it was so obvious that the 'artist' had to resort to trolling in order to try to sell his/her work because clearly, this 'artist' had no talent and none of their work would never get any attention otherwise because it was bad art? Although, you always sort of secretly hoped that they ended up with some sort of job in advertising or something somewhere, because it does take talent to be a successful AW...just not the kind of talent that makes good art.

Yeah, me either.

Andres Serrano went on to a rather successful career that was somehow not marred by producing two album covers for Metallica, actually.

Just sayin'.

SkunkWerks: Andres Serrano


See? He got marketing work!

Actually, I'm the first to admit I can't go there. I know little to nothing about Andres Serrano's work because I am completely grossed out. Is it bad art? I don't know -- too squicked out by Andres Serrano to see past the gross-out factor.

However, that goofy painting of Obama with the heavy-handed religious symbolism...that's just bad art. I'm not afraid to say it!

So is Hannity's new painting. *snerk!* You know it has deep symbolism because there's a hidden word in there!

You know, it's not often that you run into something that a bit of hipster irony might have helped, but I think we have two examples right chere!

Bad art can serve a purpose sometimes. Execution's more than a little bit important though. I don't think this toes the mark there either. For instance, I find the artist's statement about not meaning to represent him as Christ kinda confused. He goes on to state that he was lampooning the Right's frequent accusations that the Lefties think of him as God.

It's an attempt at farce which pretty much relies entirely on representing Obama as Christ, however.

So why you'd go and say that wasn't your intention (presumably because it isn't the "penultimate" explanation for the message you were attempting to relay) is, well, schizo. And if he was just trying to explain the "joke", well...

imagethumbnails.milo.com

Tuesdae: You know it has deep symbolism because there's a hidden word in there!


Worse is the implication that the Right's concept of "subtlety" amounts to what is essentially a magic eye painting of the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: if you look hard enough for it, you will find it.

Well, I don't like to generalize, or paint with a broad brush, so I'll just say this. Every single republican alive today enjoys having sex with chickens. Roosters work, too. It could be jealousy of his ability to procure the best poultry.


Or, as I suspect, the artist feels a bit insecure, so he rages at Obama's extremely large rooster.
