STOP TRYING TO SOUND SMART AND ARTSY

After posting my opinion on one of the black background with stolen quotes images by Alpner that have been on the front page often lately, this baboon decided that I don't have the right to voice that opinion because of the following:
I have no art of my own available for him to bash.
I don't "talk normal" and am trying to sound "artsy and smart"

Careful, everyone! If you have a vocabulary above elementary school level then you're just trying to sound smart. It's not like you're actually educated or anything! Please speak less smart for the stupids or else you're a pretentious doody head.

And don't you dare try to tell someone their shitty "typography" with quotes yanked from various meme sites that have existed since the dawn of time is unoriginal and boring. You can't possibly know what is unoriginal and boring when it comes to art because you don't have works in your gallery.

Here's the comment thread for anyone who wants to have a laugh: [link]
Look for nhprodigo's words of wisdom. Here's my favorite: [link]

that type of shit doesn't need to be on the front page. I mean fuck, that's just as bad as those fucking deviantart secrets bullshit that I saw on the FP all the fucking time.

Hahahaha what. :iconwatplx:

On a slightly unrelated note, I visited a fancy classical art gallery as part of a museum somewhere in Perth once, because obviously if you're an artist you're supposed to enjoy that crap according to my family. I was wandering around bored out of my mind and when I passed a group of 40-50 year oldish women dressed to the nines in fashion and sparkly diamond shit and I swear they were making up random pretentious words when commenting on a rather typical bland portrait to make it seem like they knew what they were talking about. :noes:

I work at an art gallery and we get people like that all the time. They're usually people who have the money to spend on art but have never studied art or created it. They always seem a bit disappointed when their BS falls flat on us, seeing as everyone who works at the gallery is a student and learned more in first year than any of these people can make up.

Lmao, that's awesome. It didn't cross my mind that it'd be common. Got a good example of a particular instance? :la:

Hrm, not of someone making stuff up to sounds smart. The girl I work with is a fourth year art history major going into her master's degree. Once we had a guy come in and ask what's the oldest art in the world. She couldn't specify the exact location, but it was a certain set of cave paintings she had studied. He went "Nope, you're wrong! I can't remember where or when but it's basically a red squiggle, it's the first application of paint ever". We were sort of dumbfounded that he'd say such a stupid thing, which gave him enough time to add "I heard it on a plane".

Because, you know, planes are the most reliable source of art history information ever.

She was still in shock he'd try to one-up her education, but I managed to quickly make up some BS to not hurt his feelings:
"Well, if you heard it on a plane it might be a new discovery. Our university has extremely high standards about the content they teach, and if it hasn't been peer-reviewed or seen by the academic community than we wouldn't have heard of it. We can only create timelines with verified information."

What a dope.

I dont think I'd have even graced him with a white lie, It'd just encourage his stupidity. But then again I'm just an ass.

Hah, yeah. I really love this job so I'm more than willing to put up with people's art BS to keep it. In any other situation, I would have asked for concrete proof like a scientific journal.
