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 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 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 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.
