    This would be funny if it weren't so true. Bring back art without analysis.

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    It only took the name Huffington Post for me to move on.

    Oh. But Tom1956, this one was actually worth reading.
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt

    Interesting article, Shawn, about the cycles of what's popular in the art world.

    The best phrase I took from the (good) article: "I take the approach that the Dalai Lama suggests, looking for what I have in common with people -- and artists -- before I consider how we might differ in our views. "
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    oops, sorry. I immediately thought of a couple family members who are academia retirees. He sits around watching MSNBC, CNN, and Huffington all day, and she is a REAL piece of work. They wear that stuff on their sleeve and are quick as rattlesnakes to snap at you. You gotta be careful about reading any of that kind of thing. On the subject of art, I figure the less said is the better, and to let it speak for itself.

    That's brilliant. I'll have to remember to re-blog that. But it's a sad comment on the state of the arts academy today.
