Exquisite and captivating.

On Friday, the work "Freeing the Voice" was displayed, consisting of a man lying on a white mattress on the floor and screaming incessantly for 2.5 hours.

Sounds like a conversation amongst progressives.

AKA how "Paul Joseph Watson makes money by spouting absolutely brainless nonsense."

Want to know how Trump got elected? Look to people like this for the answer.

The Democrats selling out their base because it was "her turn" certainly didn't help either.

Coach is right. A rejection of the mental illness displayed throughout that video is why Trump won.

Like anything, it's about marketing and hype. These bad artists have great marketing teams.

There's horrible DJs out there who make millions, meanwhile, guys and girls with genuine technical sophistication and talent struggle to make ends meet. I'm not being subjective either - there's DJs who play shit music but are great at the art of DJing. Some open format DJs just assail the room with radio-friendly crap at high volume, but really know how to mix and when to drop a track, for example.

I took my four-year-old daughter to the Museum of Modern Art this week and showed her five specific paintings while you guys were watching Duck Dynasty or whatever. They made an impression on her and we have been discussing them each day since. Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Vincent van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso. She has been obsessed with precise technique with her arts and crafts and I wanted her to see that technique and art are two different things, and that scribble-scrabble can be art.

Anybody disagree?

I focused on those five since a kid has a short attention span. She was also impressed with Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, so I'm going to take her to the Dali Museum in Sarasota.

While you were doing that I changed a shitty diaper and thought, hey look, modern art.
