Dates from the Ice Age.

At this point, I am totally showing off.

Maybe Vox Day’s Time to Civilization concept would be best applied to tools and jewelry evolution?

I’d say coins but we literally invented numismatics. The Goddess Moneta’s temple was literally opposite the ancient mint. [Some sources claim in the Temple but it was all generally the same sacred space.]

Are modern artists, con artists?

You be the judge. This has been going on at least a century.

“Critics of modern art will at least applaud the irony. The Tate Gallery has paid £22,300 of public money for a work that is, quite literally, a load of excrement.”

I know that one by experience.

I see you rip-off merchants, and I won’t be blogging (here) forever. I’m getting tired of the meme thing and looking into other arts, one day I’ll submerge from this.
Good luck finding me again to pinch things wholesale when that happens.

 

Video: The Truth About Modern Art

It’s all ‘performance art‘. All of it.

What is performance art? Nobody knows.

What makes it good or bad? There are no standards.

Why do they do it? It makes a lot of money and allows rich people to avoid taxes. The Left don’t have a problem with that type of tax evasion scheme.

Trigger warning: gross abortion picture you don’t want to see if you’re eating as I definitely wasn’t…. 

*sound of hiding pasta*
