    They're not the first shitty faux-artist to think like that. They won't be the last.

    I wouldn't concern yourself with it.
    The internet can be a fairly stupid place but the comments section on YouTube might actually represent the highest concentration of stupidity yet witnessed by mankind..
    Reviews on IMDB run a close second..

    Ignore it, get on with your own work.?

    Sometimes I do, when I'm doing a Google search and click a Yahoo answers link by mistake. My brow scrunches with irritation every time.

    I'd sooner ask 4chan, to be honest.

    PRECISELY.

    Sometimes when I'm depressed I go on Yahoo answers and search up random things for laughs. It cheers me up within a few minutes!

    If you're wondering how to cook something the BBC website can probably help you out.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/
    Or maybe Ch4 ..
    http://www.channel4.com/4food/

    Or y'know, anything that isn't Yahoo! answers..


    Edit: more info than anyone could need about Tofu..is that even a food?
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/tofu
    http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipe...?freetext=tofu

    Bit of a tangent I know but food is more important and more fun than idiotic YouTube comments.

    I actually fondly remember a Yahoo trolling spree I did on some other forum (I started the thread). It grew to be like a 30 page thread before it was taken down, and it was brilliant. We asked such fabled questions as, "How do I skin my cat alive" and "Why is Nicholas Cage afraid of bees?"

    i believe that there are people like savants who do have that talent. But typically they lack full understanding of what they are actually doing and it thus becomes like printing.

    But yea, i suppose its possible in the same way that people can learn to play a song by ear. but it doesn't make a person an artist, rather a copyist who tends to lack creative license or intent.

    imho

    Bad analogy dude, most people who can play a song just by listening tend to be very well practiced musicians.
    That's how they can "just hear it" and play the thing.

    Agreed it doesn't make them a songwriter but it's not as "Rain Man" as you're making it sound...

    Just sayin..

    I'm sure the person really CAN draw anything after seeing it a couple times, it'll just look like crap.
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Whenever people mention youtube comments, it sounds like people going to the Magic Johnson Theater to listen to the audience speak.

    I learned to play Fur Elise without ever touching a piano just by listening to it and playing with the keys for a few hours.

    i had no clue what i was doing technically. i just knew how to imitate.

    Not sure if you are being rude or if im just mis-reading your comment. But its cool.

    What I was driving at was, sure, some people can hear the thing then "play around" for a bit until they hit it but a trained musician can probably identify that something is largely in, say E minor.
    From there he'll have a pretty decent idea where on a fretboard all the other notes are likely to fall, he'll already know what all the standard options for chord progressions would be, that kind of thing.
    Rather than playing around until he finds the notes, he has a map, make sense?
    Not sure if you are being rude or if im just mis-reading your comment. But its cool.
    Certainly no intention to be rude, I think we're just on slightly different pages.
