STOP TRYING TO SOUND SMART AND ARTSY

:iconsexlessdemon:
SexlessDemon Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
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]

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.

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.

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.

Oh my....they sure wanted to be "intuitive" in the arts.


I know art is subjective, but a tree usually doesn't have some sort of "hidden meaning" when painted. It's just a tree. :B

I hate how people are bashing you for this. What they say is "you're bashing him for expressing himself" (or usually something along the lines of this) when in reality they're also bashing you. So, they're nothing but hypocrites.

Actually, you went by that person's page and acted like a superior bitch, then got called on it.

Try to shut the fuck up, you'll get in less scrapes like this.

:iconsexlessdemon:
SexlessDemon Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
I never claimed superiority by saying that their stolen quotes on black backgrounds that they actually sell for money are unoriginal. If it's not your own idea, then it's unoriginal, it's the truth. No work or effort needs to be put in when you take someone's words and type them onto a plain background then sell it.

Acting superior and claiming superiority is not the same thing.

And maybe his work lies in knowing what quotes that are out there, picking the right ones, and portraying them effectively in a way that sells.
That is work, and it can be considered an art form.

You are narrow minded and ignorant, yet you act superior (or try to).

You are an idiot.

SexlessDemon Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
I never said it wasn't art, and noticing what quotes are popular does not take much work, especially if you go to meme sites every so often and take quotes off of television shows like family guy, which this Alpner fellow does.

It doesn't bother me if you think I'm narrow minded, ignorant or an idiot for thinking that what this guy does looks like shit and takes little effort since none of the ideas are his own.

I still don't see how I acted superior. That's usually something idiots who disagree with someone's opinion say.

So... You don't see how doing the work takes work... I guess there really is no point in talking to you.

Don't worry though, I'll never call you smart. Not even once.

I wasn't worried about that to begin with. I don't really see why you think your opinion of my intelligence means anything to me.

I suppose it does take work. A whole 5 minutes to put the ripped off quotes on a saved template that is a plain black background with their website on it.

Sure, if you already know the quotes and where to find them, plus just how you want to present them.
Getting there is part of the work.

You have a mental retardation, right? I should stop haranguing you.

Whether you have no work of your own is sort of irrelevant when it's barely considerable as art in the first place. Oy vey... Also, the way you speak is exactly the same as everyone else. :|
