I reject your rationale, and substitute it with own:
It's been a long time / We shouldn't have left you / Without a dope beat to step to.
I'm proud to present a personal side project I've been working on for the last few months - a picture...

On a good day:
Meeeeerrry Christm- I mean, Haaaaappy International Self Portrait Day!:)
I say this without irony: If this works for you, fine.
I say this with a little bit of sarcasm: Might I suggest, then, that you search for the answer to "What is Aesthetics?" in a dictionary?
Imagine a 15 minute youtube video about how black holes work without being allowed to rely on the audience's graps of basic math. Sure, it'll be fun watching a professor blow up and poke at balloons,...
For people who disagree with most of what Marx says, sex is pretentious masturbation.
Sorry, couldn't help myself:)
To be honest, I could never really take theories of aesthetics seriously. I'm not really sure why, but I do, for instance, remember actually skipping Kant's words on the matter. I -think- my...
Russel's should be an excellent choice.
Not really sure I understand what is meant by aesthetics not being a matter of values. Having hastily browsed through the thread, I'd guess you're referring...
I'd say start with the pre-Socratics. Getting a feel for the the superparadigm shift from Mythos to Logos...ees pretty important for any dabbler in theory of thought:)

Some are more equal than others, though.
I wish every thread in the Lounge was like this:)
Without wanting to get too deep into definitions here, I think that my strategy is to focus on "craft" instead of "art". (ref, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Techne )
Like I said above, my artistic...
I have to admit that I have read nothing by Patel beyond that quote. And I have read both "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" several times (never bothered with Anthem, most likely because I had...
For me, my artistic integrity is anchored in the desire to practice and improve my craft.
Have your Plato, I'll stick with Aristotle:)
...which, although just barely, justifies yet another...
Yeah, don't mind me. Just a knee-jerk reaction to reading the Fountainhead as "a book about what it means to have artistic integrity", I guess.
Look at Frazetta's early E.R.B illustrations. Then look at James Allen St. John's preceding work. Tell me there's no stylistic mimicry involved.
Well, in my opinion, the mythological pop-potential of Europa's entanglement with the bovine/divine is vastly inferior to that of PasiphaŽ, and I assume this is why she's seldom referenced as...
Thank you for posting - great sceneries and great photos of 'em!:)
but is it Art?
Or make their own.
Just look for tutorialz on youtube.
Eventually, looking will replace the act of reading, just as consumption will replace usage.
