I'm sorry, Cloudy, I didn't mean it like that. It's a misunderstanding D: It was meant to be a self-deprecating joke, not an offense to the being which eats Clouds. I mean, I wouldn't want to insult a being that eats Clouds, he might eat all my Clouds! I love my Clouds! They block out all that harsh light from the Flame Orb, that nasty thing which pops in the atmosphere for 12 hours or so a day and tries to set everything on fire, and it isn't nice. It even tried to set my computer alight, once, you know how uncool that is? I need my computer to search up crackers and penguin waffles - no other place, physical or ethereal, contains such powerful knowledge to the secret of penguin waffles - they are one, and they are legion.

What were we talking about again?

That doesn't make sense to me. It's like loving good food but not appreciating chefs. Someone's gotta be in the world to make what you're appreciating, and if you appreciate it, you should appreciate the person who made it as well.
Or do people think it's not important enough for there to be careers in it? That it doesn't contribute enough to society? That point of view doesn't make much sense to me, but it makes sense that people would say that kind of thing. The general public's understanding of the arts is pretty narrow.

I think it really depends on how the poll takers asked the question. When most non art people think of an artist they imagine someone famous and old or dead who just paints paintings and sells them and gets them put in galleries. I don't think that most people would actually think about the people who design posters and draw illustrations for books and movies and concept artists when they think of an artist. So that's why I think the outcome of their poll was as such.

Thats weird. So we appreciate art, but not artists? I don't really understand how you can appreciate only the fruit of one's work. I mean, if I'm thankful for having food every night, I wouldn't be thankful to the food, but to the person who got me the food. Weird.

....Well, I'm sort of here....
Slow internet and new lifestyle will probably put a slight damper on my time on here for a bit. I'll try to get on for a few hours in the evening, but probably not much beyond that.

Since the pages are taking forever to load, I'm not going to bother with getting in on the current conversation. But anyway I'm here Guys... Did ya miss me?

Here's looking at you Nae :3

I didn't really notice, I blame timezones. My posts per day is also slowly declining.

I'm actually finding that mine are increasing - it must be something to do with my tendency to drop 20 posts at a time.

Anyway, read the article, and I have to say that it's pretty paradoxical - people expect new art to pop up from nowhere, yet people seem to think that it's an integral part of society. Mind you, I'm pretty sure that it's probably something to do with how fun the work is, and how it doesn't really produce any edible or spendable results.

People are just judgmental.

I think I'd rather just say that people just don't really understand this kind of thing, and it's best just not to care what they think. The ones that get it are the ones that matter.

I get it, but I guess I don't have much right to comment on what people think. I'm no professional and probably won't become one, after all.

I think I've decided that the people are interested in the artists creation, rather than the artists themselves.
Just like I don't care where stuff came from, I'm just glad we have it. (in most cases, anyway).

I have a complaint as well. Three of your 5 submissions are photographs of the same thing.
Which is in fact abusive.

Please choose 2 and remove them... or I will choose for you.

At that point you will only have 3 submissions, which isn't enough to stay scouted. I suggest you submit another *unique* piece quickly.

...anything else you'd like to complain about?

Wait, wait, what? I saw the trailer over at Planet Terror, I didn't think it was an actual bloody film. Unless you're screwing with me. Are you screwing with me? I think screwing with me. Unless it's a film.

Well, originally, it was one of the many fake trailers inserted into Grindhouse The trailer for Machete became so popular, though, that Rodriguez decided to turn it into an actual film. And it's fucking awesome. From start to finish, the entire movie is just awesome.

Im just screwing with you. In one of the trailers he says something to the effect of "I'm the new lawn guy."
And hes holding like a chainsaw or something.
