Yeah, I guess I gotta take the bad with the good.  Definitely familiar with that as a scifi fan.

Around here in NC, we don't so much have utterly bad art as just painfully mediocre art.  But at least we have the stargate rings:



"Chevron 7, locked"

Yeah, but mostly about the commercial value, no? Without someone like Warhol, it would be much much worse. Without Warhol we wouldn't have memes, would we? He would LOVE it by the way, lol.

I like that you are interested in history of art. I have bad news though. As an art historian, I think 95% of art history is bullshit, while the 5% is crucial for humanity. Most of the at historians would tell you that 'but, how that's important'. It's not. However, unfortunately you need to swim through that 95% bullshit I'm afraid. And you should. (I promise you, you'll have so much fun.) And that's the reason why I'm writing all these. I want you -and everybody else- to o lay back and enjoy their species. You know..."these are Pyramids, that's Mico's pieta...that's blah blah and that's the fucking soup cans...". Because that's what we are. :D

@Hydra009 Sweetie, that's all fine. But the thing is you cannot exclude the main culture and leave the most of the works done altogether out. Because that's the culture we live in.

We don't get to jump into some 'center', or 'main stream', and say: "STOP!", or "GO THIS WAY".

What we think is 'ideal', and what humanity is going through are two very different things. They almost never meet. As we sow, so shall we reap. This is not a decision somebody makes. Actually, again this is what he means. What's more, it's like wishing peace on earth, Hydra. 
I'm just pointing it out that's all.
