The Stupid, Insane, Fake World of Art
Jewish World Review, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/11/2018 6:27:30 AM

Recently I read a post on the Drudge Report that an auction house was forced to admit it got "Banksy-ed" after a piece by the mysterious artist shredded itself after it sold for £1million. Apparently the shredded work of art will now be worth twice as much. Insane, perhaps, but hardly surprising to me; as I had discovered to my dismay that the world of art had long ago been more consumed with marketability rather than genuine talent.

The most insane piece of art I´ve ever seen is in the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. It´s a painting about 5´x 5´ with a stainless steel frame (I think). The canvas is painted white. That´s it, unless there´s some detail that I missed.

Art is completely up to the individual to appreciate. Its why I don´t like funding from all to support it.

At least Banksy can draw. There were huge paintings at the Whitney Museum that were completely blank except for the color blue.

As the Official Potter for the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (yes, it´s THAT vast), having had a retail and wholesale pottery business for twenty years, I feel you dog. What I lack in talent (and I lack a LOT), I made up with chops, having thrown well over 150,000 pots from ´94-2007. The wholesale and retail and most of my equipment is gone now but I still throw for a very successful pottery near a national park. Once a year, I drive up there with my wheel, throw a thousand or more pots in a little over a week with their clay and drive back home. They fire, glaze and sell it as their own and that´s perfectly fine with me being their "canvas" maker. I´ve never really considered myself an artist though since I just make round stuff out of mud. However, I always considered the National Endowment for the Arts as welfare for artists.

Every art museum has those blank one color pieces called art #1. Baltimore Museum of art had a coo coo clock that was exactly like one I have at home. Nothing expensive or fancy. When I went to correct the time on it, (a force of habit at home), The guard yelled at me for touching the art. I yelled back at him that this isn´t art. Art was in the next room painted by people who had talent. Some of those paintings were so life like, one would think it was a photograph. Now that´s art which took talent to produce.

There are a lot of parallels to other things going on in our culture.

Anything can be passed off as art as long as elitists proclaim it so and are capable of convincing you that it´s due to your lack of sophistication if you happen to disagree. So all the heads bobb to the tune of oos and aha´s while invisible thought bubbles express "I can´t believe this garbage is art what´s wrong with me I hope I can pull this off."

#8 sounds like an artist to me. Taking something mundane and making something beautiful out of it; something that people value and display, is a great thing. Even better if they are willing to pay for them. At this moment #8 might be in thousands of living rooms in a place of honor.

I had a friend twenty years ago who was an Indian trying to learn about her roots. She started making pottery and gave me a few of the practice ones. They are among my most cherished possessions.

Looks to me like a bunch of people with more ´Dollars´ than ´Cents´.

I recall going to the Hirshorn museum of modern art (part of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC). One of the ´priceless art´ pieces was a bunch of short 2x4 pieces dumped in a pile. I have seen the same thing at construction sites, it was called the ´drops´ pile. Every now and then, the pile would be picked up and put in the dumpster.

I agree that ´art´ should not be funded with money, taken under threat of imprisonment, from working people.

Let the rich people fund it.
If the ´artists´ can sucker the stupid rich into paying ridiculous amounts of cash for stuff that is basically trash, then that´s their business.
BUT-when some ´executive director´ of some ´nonprofit´ wastes Taxpayer money to buy this trash, then it´s OUR business!

I got a grin out of this piece.

I have done a good bit of engineering consulting work with a couple of major art museums, solving problems with large outdoor pieces, ancient Egyptian and Greek art and modern pieces.

Art conservation is a funny, interesting world. But, some of the modern art is pretty ridiculous, too. I´d far and away work on an ancient piece like a marble sculpture than a modern large outdoor piece, which is often not particularly talented (IMO) but is badly constructed, falling apart, and very difficult to rebuild and stabilize in a sound engineering manner while retaining the appearance the artist intended.

Today´s art critics seem to praise works depicting chaos rather than beauty. They love, ´splashes & dashes,´ rather than tranquility and God´s awesome creation throughout the natural world. The huge metallic stick, ´tinker-toy,´ sculptures placed in public places, around airports & etc. do not inspire, but annoy. The artsy in-crowd must view the world through a very skewed prism.

Better to check out the beauty of today´s Western Art which depicts realism and delights viewers with amazing beauty and isn´t a waste of time.

The rise of "modern art" coincides with the rise of the acceptance of Freud. Deep meaning ascribed to nonsense.

I long ago decided that if I could do it, it wasn´t art. (I can dribble paint on a canvas.)

My definition of art is now this - If I want to look at it a second time, it has a good possibility that it is art.

That was a polar bear in a whiteout blizzard, no doubt. I´ve known very talented artists who could draw a scene with photographic realism, yet never make it in the art world.

The world of art is not about talent or creativity. Probably more about who you know, or who you (bleep).

Juanita Broaddrick is credible: Bill

New York Daily News, by Richard Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 10/23/2018 8:36:32     Post Reply
Almost a year ago, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said that Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with Monica Lewinsky. At the time, I thought Gillibrand was wrong — not to mention a bit tardy — but now I’m undecided. What moved me, though, has little to do with Lewinsky and much more to do with a name that seems to have been forgotten: Juanita Broaddrick. She claimed Clinton raped her. Broaddrick’s allegations first surfaced in the media 1992 as Clinton was running for President, and then resurfaced in 1999 when he was being impeached.

ISTANBUL — President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was expected to divulge details of Turkey’s investigation into the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi for the first time on Tuesday, in a highly anticipated speech he had said would reveal the “naked truth” about Khashoggi’s fate. Since Khashoggi’s death three weeks ago after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the governments of Saudi Arabia and Turkey have offered sharply differing versions of what happened to him. The Saudi story has shifted dramatically over time, from assertions he walked out of the consulate unharmed to finally acknowledging Khashoggi

President Trump said he spoke to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman about the killing of Jamal Khashoggi and doesn’t like his explanation from the Saudis for why the journalist was killed. “I’m not satisfied with what I’ve heard,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday as he left for a rally in Texas for GOP Sen. Ted Cruz. Saudi officials on Saturday said Khashoggi was accidentally strangled after he got into a fistfight with Saudi security officials after arriving at the consulate in Turkey on Oct. 2.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a bar complaint against Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers on Friday. Judicial Watch argued Christine Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz and Michael Bromwich neglected to inform their client she could have been interviewed about the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh in the privacy of her own home in California rather than a public hearing in D.C. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) offered to arrange interviewers to travel to California to give Ford the privacy she wanted, yet her lawyers never informed her of the option.

On 11 October 2017 an anonymous Google spreadsheet began doing the rounds of American newspapers and magazines — a document that would have far-reaching consequences for Stephen Elliott, a Los Angeles-based writer and editor. Called ‘Shitty Media Men’, the spreadsheet had been created by Moira Donegan, a former assistant editor at the New Republic, and named various men rumoured to be guilty of sexual misconduct. Donegan closed it down a few days later, but by that time it had been widely circulated and many names had been added, alongside a summary of their alleged crimes.

In his opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 26, Brett Kavanaugh argued that the allegations of sexual misconduct raised against him were part of an orchestrated attempt to block his nomination by congressional Democrats and their allies. We likely haven’t seen anything to match the phony indignation coming from Democrats in response to that charge since the famous scene in “Casablanca,” when Claude Rains expresses astonishment to find gambling in an illicit casino his character regularly patronizes. U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) had her Rains moment, laughably describing Kavanaugh’s testimony as “shocking.”

Pay attention to the policy. They repeated this even after Trump fired his White House chief of staff and Secretary of State on Twitter, and started making policy announcements to his followers that his advisers didn’t know about.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away.

Acosta -- who is billed as an impartial journalist -- declared that Sanders typically aims to “perform for the president” in order to maintain her own job security.

The “American Opportunity Account Act” would essentially create a trust fund for every U.S. citizen born in the U.S. After age 18, the money can be accessed but only used for certain “human and financial capital investments” like buying a house or paying for higher education.

A gay man who describes himself as a liberal Democrat is accusing New Jersey Senator Cory Booker of sexually assaulting him in 2014. Booker is considered a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous for now, penned a lengthy open letter that was posted on Twitter.

Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore on Saturday cheered the “last days of the dying dinosaur” in which old white men are starting to give way to a younger, more diverse U.S. electorate.

Barack Obama continued to campaign against Republicans on Monday. The former president broke precedent this year by campaigning against the opposition party after leaving office. On Monday Obama took credit for the Trump economy — which is a joke. Obama then compared President Trump to a tinpot dictatorship. This guy is such a fraud. (Video) Buzzfeed News reported: Former president Barack Obama was onstage at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Monday, doing a familiar, uncomfortable job. He was here to rally Democrats and to fight cultural tides the party didn’t quite anticipate……Obama spent much of his speech on a

Back in June in Sandusky, Ohio, about 65 miles west of my home here in Cleveland, there was a huge federal raid involving about 200 agents on Corso’s Flower and Garden Center. The combined ICE-led operation rounded up 114 undocumented immigrants workers; some of whom had been here on and off for decades. The raid lay bare the essential dilemma facing those attempting to enforce our immigration policy. It took a gigantic federal operation to round up and hold for deportation people who were working hard and attempting to do the right thing. No matter how you slice it, our massive,

Monday at CNN’s CITIZEN conference, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s tweet saying “unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in” with the migrant caravan headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border is a “fear tactic.” When asked if he knew what Trump was talking about, Flake said, “No, that’s long been pretty much a canard and a fear tactic.” He continued, “These, for the most part overwhelmingly, are people who are either fleeing violence or looking for a better life.”
