Last night I fell over whilst indie discoing TWICE?!
has any other DiSer had a dance floor mishap recently?
In fact, i fell over, got up, and fell over again.
But i was flailing, which is a good way of dancing.
note subject title
*whistles to self*
its like Danceteria ever happened
is up with his FINGER?!
both headbutted AND dropped on my head mid-disco by one mr.alcxxk.
realise he comes across as a completely pretentious wanker.is interested in post-impressionism and czech stuff.i mean for fucks sake.
being interested in things which you obviously find pretentious.
Personally, I'm quite pleased that I have the creativity and resourcefulness to seek out something exciting and beautiful which might not be immediately obvious to somebody undiscerning.
Also, I'm probably a better lay than you.
realise he comes across as an uncultured idiot with not an ounce of art or intellect in his veins?
post-impressionism. hmmm, that include cubism?
at the DiS pre-Christmas thing. I feel your pain. I got covered in Barfly filth.
I don't believe you.
but i'm getting a mixtape out of that aren't i?
it sort of includes cubism
I'm really into Gauguin and Tolouse-Latrec. I also sort of see Sickert and Degas as post-impressionist, or at least that's how they appeal to me, though art historian types would disagree wth me.
was post-impressionist, to me that's more the likes of cezanne and maybe van gogh.
and early cubism, as it developed from cezanne. i don't really know though
because cubism itself is too small a movement to justify pre and post ideas.
it was only truly practised by four or so artists, and imitated aesthetically by others.
I like lots of the art made after impressionism, hence i like post impressionism.
i really like the stuff experimenting with subject matter within a fairly impressionistic framework. sort of, almost marrying literary power with striking art...
you saying that words and art are different because words on page dont mean anything intrinsically whilst art does?
but how different?
the word horse obscures the nature of horseyness far more effectively than a photograph of one.
one that words wouldnt?
This is why you guys get accused of being pretentious...
The only Post i like is Man...
Expressionism is cool. Especially the bad German kinds...
i just got the impression from his profile that he thinks hes superior for being into all that stuff. ah fuck it i know im better than u wankers so ill shut up.
that was a pretty unprovoked outburst.
Ho-Fo is a better lay than any of you will ever be?
It's in his hair. It has power.
I love how that girl on the right is looking at him with an expression of complete curiosity and wonder.
its always a parody of the last 80 years of free form dancehall- well that's what I tell myself if I catch my reflection
Schiele is amazing. When i went round round europe the schiele stuff in the museum in Vienna was totally one of the highlights. He's so good.
You do have nice hair though.
That was generally what i was getting at.
Lose his hair and he will FALL!
cos you cut yours off? or do you just want an easy shag to be less emo? :P
I still have hair.
My dad said he would be 'disapointed' if i shaved it all.
it can be used effectively: if we were mindless refering to stuff that we'd pciked up somewhere without a clue as to what it meant, that would be pretentious: the pretense being that we were more intelligent than we are.
whereas in fact what we're doing is avin a natter.
well, what im doing is contracting qc for the sake of it because he was speaking in slightly absolutist terms, and im procrastinating very very hard.
in other news, today i recorded a skapunk tune.
God is great.
I wasn't accusing you of being pretentious....
i was jus sayin
my girlfriends parents wont let me cut my hair.
that doesn't mean anything.
Isn't reading in tongues...
u must have long hair if my birds ma and da z i cuded get my hair cut i think i wud go get it done just on badness"
"you must have long hair. if my girlfriend's parents said that i couldnt get my hair cut, i would go and get it done just to be rebellious."
dont get why i must have long hair tho. or why id want to rebel against someone elses lovely parents.
that's an amazing translation. It just looked like a foreign language to me.
