What? Reply Ah, the beauty is that is modern “art”… I’ll stick to Rembrandt. Reply Agreed. According to the NEA, if someone isn’t pissing on it, masturbating with it, or stuffing it up their arse, it just isn’t “art”. Reply Seriously, that’s not art. It’s just ppl behaving like idiots. Reply In the words of Tony Soprano: “Sheez! Juhzoooz guise jus ain gah no fuggn culture, eh?” Reply What about The Gunny’s shotgun-produced abstract art? It kind of reminds me of Jackson Pollack, without the pretentiousness. Reply Interesting stuff Reply You want to see gun art then go to the National Firearms Museum at the NRA headquarters. You’ll see an awesome collection of historical guns, movie guns, and other notable items. As for the video… a brief look into the idociy of self-indulgent fools. Moreover, if having someone shoot you is art then the the TTAG IGOTD is a veritable archive of masterpieces. Reply Albeit nitpicking, when the video showed the muzzle end of a firearm it always mentioned ‘as seen by the shooting victim’. So is a photo of the front of a car always ‘as seen by a hit and run victim’? Reply To be fair, he may be echoing the artist’s original intent as explained to him by the artist or perhaps parroting a review with the same insight. Other than that, I thought it was pretty objective view for a very short piece. He said he was going to offer multiple viewpoints and did. He didn’t seem to take any ‘side’ about the validity of any of those viewpoints. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
