    In the end, poetry just seems an awful lot like list making.

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    I would just like to say that I have never met anyone that I agree with so strongly on some issues and disagree with equally strongly on other issues as Uberfuhrer. It's quite frustrating.

    I've gone to a number of modern art shows, and much of what I see is junk.

    Modern art shows are basically trips back to the stone age blanketed with the illusion of sophistication by having expensive wine and cheese appetizers.

    That you can take a piece of clay and mold it into little more than a lump of asymmetrical rubble does not make you a skilled artist.

    I think the popularity of modern art (which I'll call abstract art, it's basically the same thing) can be explained by the fact that you can interpret it yourself and no one can call bullshit on you. People love to be the one to have "figured it out" and to expound on it to impress a date or some friends. Abstract art appeals to our vanity.

    A landscape or a bowl of apples, however skillfully executed, just isn't as much fun to deconstruct for this kind of person.
