Considering that I am into all different forms of “art,” I can say that it’s hard to determine where an artist is coming from when they create. One of the beautiful things about art is that it IS open for interpretation.
However, I dunno that I like this comparison. Not necessarily assuming anything about the artist (as I know absolutely nothing about her), I just think that this comparison brings about eerie thoughts and feelings that I’d rather not think of.
Was this simply a (strong) coincidence or was the artist trying to ‘say’ something?
She sounds as though she might have a bit of an accent. If that is indeed the case and you don’t want to claim what IS (i.e., Obama as your president), then march your ignorant, child abusing ass on out of the country!
People, if you’re not pleased with the PEOPLE’S decision to elect Obama as our president, by all means…LEAVE! I get tired of walking in crowded spaces ANY damn way! LEAVE! There are thousands upon thousands of other countries that you can take your ass to! You’re not obligated to stay here and agree with a damn thing. Carry your ass on!
If you’re a blogger, be it written or video form, articulate yourself correctly and be as precise as possible.
What I’m finding in the blog community is that there are quite a few people who blog and leave commenting to the “audience.” But when said audience member reads what’s said or listens to what’s spoken and posts their thoughts, the creator comes behind them and corrects them for what it is that they’ve said.
Let me be a bit more clear. If you want to talk about green apples in your blog but simply say apples, don’t be upset if someone comments about red, green or golden b/c you did NOT specify what it is that you meant. I remember back in the day when I was part of a blogging circle. We all read one another’s blogs, commented, the whole nine. But it wasn’t the comradery that had me driven…it was the fact that everyone in that blog circle articulated their point well enough to where there were no questions, only comments. There were no corrections to be made…you just got their point, posted your own thoughts and moved on. But there are a string of bloggers who aren’t doing that. I’ll see a blog that says “Apples, Apples, Apples…I like Apples.” I decide to comment “I like green apples…they’re a little bitter though.” And the creator of the blog regarding apples says “I didn’t say a damn thing about green apples.” I’m like “what the fuck? word?!?” SMH
Like I said, though…I’m a silent mover. If I don’t get the material that you’re giving me, I move on. Period. I don’t have time to sit and listen or read something, express my point of view and then be told “No, that’s not what I meant.”
Well articulate your point then so there’s no ROOM for wonderment. This is not to say that there could not be a point of agreeance or disagreement. It’s simply saying that if I can’t understand you b/c of your own explanation, then you shouldn’t be mad at me.
I digress. I think I’m gonna stay in my own little ‘world’ when it comes to blogging.
If you are not familiar with AlphaCat, I suggest you familiarize yourself with him.
This cat is the business! I absolutely adore his Obama skits b/c EVERYTHING he does is ON POINT!!
Now, everybody and their mama made an Obama vid last night and to be quite honest, I ain’t watching all of em. However, when I was on BlogTV with the crew, they were like “J, you gotta check out AlphaCat’s vid! He ROCKED it.” And true to form, AC BURNT IT UP!
