Dude, you need to take a chill pill, not insult every single artist & know what you're talking about. At this point, you're just trolling.
I know many artists (irl) and they work very hard at it. The images you see take many years of training & drawing/practicing every single day. You can't do that if you "don't care about art." There is a lot that goes into producing a single piece; let alone an entire comic, etc. Both the art & writing fields require a lot of revision and learning.

That's where I think you're wrong. Art is mediocre, and I'm not talking about tumblrinas who draw pictures of the people from frozen with big red noses. We're not talking about animators and patreon artists. That is not what I mean by art. None of that goes up in a museum.

I am very well versed in art. Like i've said before, I come from a family of artists, so my aesthetic sense is far from unrefined. I know about minimalism and neo-expressionism, and impressionism and abstract expressionism and brutalism and post-modernism and all of that other shit. I'm saying it's bad. Brutalism in architecture was a shit show, and I know you know this because you're an architect. Abstract expressionism and minimalism are both garbage. I like neo-expressionism because of Basquiat. Banksy is a moron, as are many of the other anarchist social critics. I frequent art museums and I've studied the histories and some of the practices of painting, music, literature and poetry extensively. Some of my favorite artists include James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, and Robert Irwin.

They do not encompass art as a whole, however. Art as a whole has been lacking since about the 1960's when Andy Warhol decided that he thought he could "mass produce" art. Either that or it was when James Pollock swindled people into thinking that he had talent.

The real tragedy is that beauty has been subjectivized. I know that there are things in this world that bear incalculable beauty and many of them are much, much older than you are and have been abandoned because they had "standards". Nihilists and subjectivists are incapable of producing anything beautiful, and it's my objective as an intellectual and artist help to return these standards to light.

That has to be of the most mediocre things I've ever heard. Sure the intricacies of biology are so profound they're like intelligent design, but I know that's not what you meant by that. You think that there is beauty in everything, and that standards should not be held to beauty. That's subjectivism and it makes the world ugly, because there are ugly people with ugly standards and ugly motives. You probably also think that people are intrinsically good and that morality is predicated upon instinct. People who think like that are probably why whoever the guy is who would have been the next Da Vinci spent his life beating off and shooting heroin. I don't dislike your optimism. I love optimism. What I dislike is naivety. it's an excuse for people to trample all over great things.

There's no inherent ugliness in "you sure as hell could do better than that".

All that is beautiful is qualitative, and things that lack quality are not beautiful because they are not intricate or well constructed.

Heres the definition: the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit.

In other words, all beauty is that which satisfies the aesthetic sense, and everything is held to a qualitative standard because there are things which a majority of people find beautiful, and there are things which a minority of people find beautiful. But you wouldn't say that these things are beautiful because people think they're beautiful. There are people who find totalitariaist propaganda beautiful. Does that mean that they are beautiful?
Beauty is partly derived from the Latin word "bellus" which means


nice, fine, excellent

Not everything is nice, or fine, nor excellent.

Few questions. Are you aware there are probably as many definitions of art as there are art critics and theorists, and there are at least a couple that are taken into consideration by academic circles, sometimes at the same time even though they can be contradictory? This is because 'art', a mode of human expression, is heavily context-dependent. This context is historical, social, cultural, geographic, political. It is good that we can all say our piece on things we see and experience, but doing so without the neccessary tools means that what you're saying can't not be subjective. For any claim on objectivity you have to immerse yourself in the context, and a person finds, as I personally have found, that doing so opens up your mind, allows you to appreciate in different ways things you never appreciated before, and even to peer into the complex connection between art and the human heart. Getting a glimpse of the heart of someone who has lived centuries before you, their thoughts, their fears, their desires, what drove them. There are few things in life and learning as rewarding as this experience.

Also, what do you think brutalism is, exactly? What does the name mean, how did the definition come into being and what does it describe? I regret to inform you that 'brutalism', in the context you're using it in, is a shorthand. It's a buzzword, aesthetic junkfood par excellence. It is useful only when all parties involved know it for what it is. Using it to seriously discuss architecture is the equivalent of defining something as 'bathroomtileism' or 'shingleroofism'.

This is because 'art', a mode of human expression, is heavily context-dependent. This context is historical, social, cultural, geographic, political. It is good that we can all say our piece on things we see and experience, but doing so without the neccessary tools means that what you're saying can't not be subjective.
That it is subjective is an inevitability. What is foolish is the attempt to make things entirely subjective to the degree that they are not held to standards. To say that something bears no objective characteristics is to say that it doesn't have a point. And that's the absurdity of your claim. There are objectives to art.
1. To be a successful artist
2. To express art successfully
3. To produce successful art.
And many beyond that. It's not obvious to me that art exists solely for human expression.
What is poor about modern art is that it's bad and bears either no meaning, or that meaning which is vile. A majority of fine art nowadays is predicated upon the examination of a social context and the goal of many artists is to perpetuate pejorative views and demean artistic standards for the sake of artistic rebelliousness. I am aware that artists bear a great propensity to be left-leaning, and that's fine and dandy because anybody who knows anything about personality psychology knows that artists tend to be high in openness to experience, which is a left-leaning trait.



For any claim on objectivity you have to immerse yourself in the context, and a person finds, as I personally have found, that doing so opens up your mind, allows you to appreciate in different ways things you never appreciated before, and even to peer into the complex connection between art and the human heart. Getting a glimpse of the heart of someone who has lived centuries before you, their thoughts, their fears, their desires, what drove them. There are few things in life and learning as rewarding as this experience.
I have immersed myself in the context. I have immersed myself in many different contexts and derived a multitude of perspectives from those experiences. I was a communist, very much like you are, and I was retarded. What art in modern times speaks to me is either an illness or neurosis. These people who cast away good things like values and standards in spite have hearts filled with tumors and bad cholesterol. There's nothing bad about examining someone or something. What is poor is viewing a pathology as a virtue.


Also, what do you think brutalism is, exactly? What does the name mean, how did the definition come into being and what does it describe? I regret to inform you that 'brutalism', in the context you're using it in, is a shorthand. It's a buzzword, aesthetic junkfood par excellence.

That it is subjective is an inevitability. What is foolish is the attempt to make things entirely subjective to the degree that they are not held to standards. To say that something bears no objective characteristics is to say that it doesn't have a point. And that's the absurdity of your claim. There are objectives to art.
1. To be a successful artist
2. To express art successfully
3. To produce successful art.
And many beyond that. It's not obvious to me that art exists solely for human expression.
What is poor about modern art is that it's bad and bears either no meaning, or that meaning which is vile. A majority of fine art nowadays is predicated upon the examination of a social context and the goal of many artists is to perpetuate pejorative views and demean artistic standards for the sake of artistic rebelliousness. I am aware that artists bear a great propensity to be left-leaning, and that's fine and dandy because anybody who knows anything about personality psychology knows that artists tend to be high in openness to experience, which is a left-leaning trait.



I have immersed myself in the context. I have immersed myself in many different contexts and derived a multitude of perspectives from those experiences. I was a communist, very much like you are, and I was retarded. What art in modern times speaks to me is either an illness or neurosis. These people who cast away good things like values and standards in spite have hearts filled with tumors and bad cholesterol. There's nothing bad about examining someone or something. What is poor is viewing a pathology as a virtue.

The real tragedy is that beauty has been subjectivized. I know that there are things in this world that bear incalculable beauty and many of them are much, much older than you are and have been abandoned because they had "standards". Nihilists and subjectivists are incapable of producing anything beautiful, and it's my objective as an intellectual and artist help to return these standards to light.

You may be an artist (though whether you're a good one, much less one capable of upholding any standards at all, is a different topic), but judging your statements here, you aren't an intellectual.
Let me try and offer you one piece of constructive advice: a good artist experiences more than they produce, and they also try and experience many different styles, ideas and worldviews exactly so as to broaden their mind.

1) You didn't answer my questions on brutalism
Just to clarify, you're an architect, and you obviously know more than I do about architecture. We aren't discussing that. I'll re-answer your question step by step instead of attempting to generalize

Also, what do you think brutalism is, exactly?
I am paraphrasing here. To put it simply, brutalism is a style said to have been created by Le Cobusier and popularized by British architects in the mid-20th century. It's a style that places an emphasis more on a building's function and form; making it more "economically sensible and modest" and involving raw concrete, similar to the term: "Beton Brut" from which "Brutalism" is derived. However, not all concrete buildings are brutalist, and not all brutalist buildings are made of concrete.

What does the name mean, how did the definition come into being and what does it describe?
The term "Brutalism" is derived from the French term "beton brut" which means "raw concrete". Alternatively, "Brutalism" is said to derive from the term "brute" which means:
1archaic : typical of beasts : animal (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/animal)
: suitable to one who lacks intelligence, sensitivity, or compassion : befitting a brute (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/brute):
a : grossly ruthless or unfeelin
b : cruel (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cruel), cold-blooded (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cold-blooded)
c : harsh (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/harsh), severe (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/severe)
d : unpleasantly accurate and incisive
e : very bad or unpleasant


I regret to inform you that 'brutalism', in the context you're using it in, is a shorthand. It's a buzzword, aesthetic junkfood par excellence. It is useful only when all parties involved know it for what it is. Using it to seriously discuss architecture is the equivalent of defining something as 'bathroomtileism' or 'shingleroofism'.
Fair enough; I'll attempt to refrain from -isms if we require specifics to engage in a serious discussion about aesthetics

I'm pretty well versed on the existentialist philosophers, Nietzche to the greatest degree. I've been to plenty of art museums and done research on artists of different disciplines ranging from Francis Bacon to Virgil to Francisco Goya, as I've stated. I go both to modern art museums and classical art museums and research the subjects from time to time. You were questioning my knowledge of the characters of artists that I've gained from my experiences of art and I've seen people who are both venerable and dismal. I have done exactly that.

Correct, I experience much more than I produce, in order to produce good things. I understand art. I am constantly absorbing aesthetic experiences through reading, listening, watching, and attempting to understand a multitude of different phenomena. What I understand as "bad" does not denote that I do not understand that "everything is good". What I understand as "bad" denotes my understanding of good things and bad things, as it would for anyone else. But what is "Good" is not what is subjective. "what is good" is "what is true", or "what works" and "truth serves life". To understand something is not to understand what is good about it or what is bad about it. To understand something is to understand why it works, or why it doesn't, and there are more things that don't work than things that do.

If I "didn't experience anything" I wouldn't know this. My mind is broad, and I am open to ideas, just ones that are valid, not "validated".

The reason I have asked you these things is that in this day of instagram tag aesthetics two people can no longer expect to be starting from the same playing field with concepts as, well, dodgy as brutalism is. The word definitions don't capture the problematic adequately. If by LeC's definition (which is not actually his definition LeC was many things but he wasn't stupid), everything with exposed concrete is brutalism, and you cram under one roof such a huge swath of contradictory architectural approaches you're basically defining nothing but material expression, one that has literally existed for hundreds of years and came into being literally with the advent of the modern architectural canon in the west.

The Smithsons draw attention to a concept of art brut - outsider art. Outsider art is something akin to naive art, for all extents and purposes the same thing. The brut here, you will note, is not used to denote something lacking in nuance, intelligence and emotional depth, but in a sense somewhat similar to the concept of the noble savage. It looks outside the canon, outside the academia and established norms, for answers to a very old but in the context of modern human living very new problem -life in a community.

Concrete is a fundamental building material. It is practically inescapable, and its characteristics are so convenient to humans one would almost think it was meant to be discovered and used in such a way by us. Exposed concrete was for the longest time a logical and natural answer to the challenges of large-scale building, and that's how the job works - if something is good for the job, it's good. You embrace it. At least until you know better.

What you'd call examples of brutalism in the UK have aged terribly, and they're the card people pull in most cases when aesthetics of exposed concrete are being discussed. Why is that? Two major interconnected reasons: the climate, and the hard fact that the people these buildings were built for simply couldn't afford the intense upkeep and stuff like extra insulation work that these buildings would require to look good in the longrun in shitty moist weather. Look at the examples in, say, India, or Brazil, or the Mediterranean regions of Europe, Africa and the Middle East. They aged much better. Look at Montreal's Habitat 67, a giant, it looks good because it's posh af and also a monument and is being painstakingly renovated and kept in mint condition. Context.

In short, we don't really like the term brutalism. It misguides more than it explains, it's unfair to many great works of architecture, it's too generalizing and imprecise. And in this job, imprecision...is death!

I appreciate your input. Thank you for putting it eloquently and in a manner from which I could derive knowledge and understanding. I do disagree with your opinion that certain examples of what one would call "brutalist" architecture shouldn't be categorized. Perhaps it's just a poor term to use in general to describe the style, not that describing the practice of brutalism is inherently wrong. Otherwise, in my opinion everything requires a sufficient degree of categorization to define the distinct qualities from which it is discernible. Fundamental characteristics that represent the whole are less defining than the minor characteristics that separate a work of art from others of it's type, but it is the fundamental characteristics that represent the style, and the unique characteristics that represent the artist. Kind of like how Fantasy typically has wizards and elves and goblins. You can say "that's my book, lord of the rings, not fantasy" but it's a characteristic that works of fantasy share. From my perspective, that is what you're attempting to say. That's more of an issue with semantics as opposed to legitimate architectural critique. I am not a legitimate architectural critic. You know more about that than I do, but let's not continue this particular discussion any further.

Our lot is cast with technoscience, where nothing is so sacred that it
cannot be reengineered and transformed so as to widen our aperture of
freedom, extending to gender and the human.

And so, in tearing down melancholy and illusion; the unambitious and the
non-scaleable; the libidinized puritanism of certain online cultures, and
Nature as an un-remakeable given, we find that our normative anti-naturalism
has pushed us towards an unflinching ontological naturalism.

Xenofeminism indexes the desire to construct an alien future with a triumphant
X on a mobile map. This X does not mark a destination. It is the
insertion of a topological-keyframe for the formation of a new logic.

Someone sent me a rather well-written e-mail (which got caught in my spam box) saying they knew my password and had used a remote connection through my browser to use my webcam to record me. The reason I didn't immediately dismiss it is because they actually did know my password, but it's a really old one, from before my cell got stolen a few years back. I'm inclined to believe it's a scambot - but I have no idea how they actually got my old password.

Yeah, it is really sad sometimes. I once saw this homeless/tweaker girl that if cleaned up, she'd be really pretty. Not that they all don't need help but you can't help the unwilling. (And I can barely afford to feed & clothe myself)
Even if they were, the context would kinda make that irrelevant. He was comparing it to H games earlier.

Well yeah, exactly. The contrast between an eroge and real life. In real life, it wouldn't matter whether the person is good-looking or not, the context means it's not hot or fun.

Tales from the unit, bonus round:

*walk over to patient. Ask him why he is peeing on the floor*

patient: because everyone else is doing it

*silently fume because he is right.*

Sometimes you just gotta let it go

After one of our other patients calmly defecated in his chair during a routine assessment, housekeeping stopped responding to calls

Oh, itís back to normal.


Itís easy just base your entire sense of self worth on what other people think of you then be really bad at being the sort of person people like and act accordingly
Iíve been doing this for years. Iím beloved by all people twenty years older than me because I barely talk IRL, and as such my own generation very likely canít visially perceive me.

yeah wouldn't that be a nice fucking meme ikr lmao the meme guy who's a meme for hating GO hates it so much isn't he such a meme let us share this meme xd lol do we fucking fit in yet

unfortunately for you i'm incoherent with rage for unrelated reasons.
If you didnít want that to happen, the only retroactive advice I can say is that you shouldnít have made a point of constantly changing the subject of the most unrelated things by comparing them to some aspect youíve of the game you hate.

nevertheless, I hope that things have gotten less awful since last week.

I've probably watched the DMC5 trailer a thousand times and I think I've got a problem.

You know, I thought it'd be cool, being privy to stuff ahead of time. But it's not. I have nobody to share it with.
