begging the prageru dude to explain what the fuck 'art' is if its not personal expression
@spookcentral first i say "lol what the hell.........."
then i lol again
@spookcentral *looking at this graph* art is about picture of horses
@spookcentral 1910 music started
@spookcentral If art can't be quantified by a single, all encompassing numerical value, then what the hell good is it?
@spookcentral It's craft, but that's still a shit argument.
@spookcentral I'm guessing the point it's at "zero" is when that urinal became found art. Just... chuds have a problem with that piece, I guess.
that piece (Fountain by Rene Duchamp) came out in 1917
@spookcentral I know nothing about art history *shrug* but neither do they so like they probably think "Dur this is hippy liberal shit."
@spookcentral look this is just science
@spookcentral i cant get over all the little bumps and dips in the line, like its actually measuring anything. art peaked in 1850! drooped into 1900, where it was making a comeback and then oh no! there it goes!!!
according to prageru art died when they released star wars
@spookcentral that works for me honestly
@spookcentral this is beyond parody
@spookcentral 1969: the year art died (became an act of personal expression)
@spookcentral a commodity?
art is a commodity like democrats are communists
@spookcentral I don't know them but I guess they aren't.
they arent but some dumbasses think they are
@spookcentral happened on my birth year... sorry about that
i was also born in an unspecified year between 1955 and 1980
@spookcentral incorrect, it went back up in the late 90s when people started making pornography for the internet
and then back down again when they started making cursed kink stuff
@spookcentral prager U guy shaking his fist like "stop having fetishes over there! don't make me show you the graph again!"
@spookcentral He thinks that's when gay people were invented.
everyone knows they didn't invent gay people until stonewall
@spookcentral stonewall is when they stopped being thankful
@spookcentral it was the commies
@spookcentral Maybe the consolidation of abstract expressionism...? In broad strokes it seems to me that this guy doesn't like the second avant-gardes and all that came after.
@spookcentral art is when you paint a rich white person and make their inbreeding less visible
@spookcentral Notice how the peak, from which the decline starts and never recovers, happens around what looks like about 1863 to me
art hasnt been the same since lincoln got shot
@spookcentral they go on to talk about good art being transcendent
ART WAS ONLY GOOD WHEN RICH PEOPLE COMMISSIONED IT. LIKE EMPERORS, POPES AND MEDICIS. POOR PEOPLE RUIN EVERYTHING. ~ Boomer's probably
Stuff meant to glorify the status quo I guess
But like most of the best art is just "hey lemme draw/paint/sculpt a thing" and sometimes that's either tiddies or an abstract shape
@spookcentral this is like the most Brasseye chart to ever have been made by someone other than Brasseye.
@spookcentral galaxy brain
@spookcentral (he wants commissions)
@spookcentral Wait is this a real chart?
@spookcentral I ain’t feel strongly about PragerU, but I do have opinions about axes without units on ‘em. Millistandards?
Lol what a fuckstick. Then again isn't this the org that had a stompy tantrum about YouTube oppressing conservatives bc some of their videos that had kid-inapproptiate content was marked restricted for filter purposes? Not surprised this is the level if educational material they have.
@spookcentral art is for culture glorification and pornography ONLY
@spookcentral commissioning religious imagery with your face on the baby jesus
@spookcentral i remember back in 1865, when artistic standards were 256. nowadays theyre zero...........
@spookcentral If some dink shows this to me, my first question will be about the units used for the Y axis.
