carapherneliatakesthesquare:

I oppose the basic tenants of Western society, including modernism and believe they should be fully challenged.

No pomo.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

  • Plato: For the greater good.
  • Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.
  • Jacques Derrida: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD!
  • Nietzsche: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.
  • B.F. Skinner: Because the external influences which had pervaded its sensorium from birth had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own free will.
  • Carl Jung: The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross roads at this historical juncture, and therefore synchronicitously brought such occurrences into being.
  • Jean-Paul Sartre: In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.
  • Ludwig Wittgenstein: The possibility of "crossing" was encoded into the objects "chicken" and "road", and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.
  • Aristotle: To actualize its potential.
  • Epicurus: For fun.
  • Henry David Thoreau: To live deliberately ... and suck all the marrow out of life.
  • Keats: Philosophy will clip a chicken's wings.
  • Whitehead: Clearly, having fallen victim to the fallacy of misplaced concreteness.
  • Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.

The last thing an aspiring vegan gives up is cheese…

archetypalcapricorn:

…and the last thing a minimalist gives up is books. One is a symphony of flavor and the other ends up as a chunk of modular art that contains friends from all walks of life. Why restrict something from your life that is obviously pleasurable and isn’t causing anything horrible to you at the very moment you indulge? Why be an ascetic about a way of life, simply because someone else’s society invented it? There’s nothing like a good book chosen from a treasure of many and a piece of Stilton with tea.

clientsfromhell:

After giving a client his requested site design, he made it clear he wasn’t pleased.

Me: But that’s what you asked for…

Client: Yeah, but I meant that figuratively.

Me: So you don’t want it to look like this?

Client: No, I do. Just think of the site design as a metaphor of a real website.

Me: What?

Everybody’s A Critic of the Day: A 36-year-old woman attempting to add a touch of postmodernism to Clyfford Still’s abstract expressionist artwork is said to have caused $10,000 worth of damage to “1957-J no.2” (above) after she scratched and punched the oil-on-canvas painting, and rubbed it on her butt.
According to Denver District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman, Carmen Tisch urinated after soiling the piece with her backside, but “[i]t doesn’t appear she urinated on the painting or that the urine damaged it.” The 9-1/2-feet tall and 13-feet wide painting is valued at $30 million.
Tisch, who was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief, is currently being held on $20,000 bond.
Artwork by Still, an influential post-WW2-era artist, is on display at his namesake museum, which recently opened in Denver. Many of the pieces were recently unveiled for the first time.
