c u night shifters l8r mayB?
do you mean PR0N?
Im thinking he means pron.
it was sort of both. If you were following the idea that a lot of art that intends to shock is pornography. It was mostly questioning whether people who make and enjoy tasteless or intentionally shocking work are really lacking in morality. And the answer seemed to be that we as humans have a particularly harrowing lack of morality and ideals anyway so the artists aren't going to be much different, and if you create or view a work of art that depicts Santa force-feeding one of his little helpers with his own faeces, people bludgeoning a foetus with their feet, war victims chopped to pieces and skewered on trees whilst dressed as clowns or photographs of people being violentally sexually assaulted then you must ultimately have a highly perverse and irrepressible desire to see it, and that any ensuing laughter just shows evidence for the human race's astonishingly unbelievable capacity for cruelty and brutality at the huge expense of others for their own entertainment, and does not therefore pay back the debt to society that they would believe producing or supporting such gruesome 'work' does by opening an apathetic audience to the harsh realities of modern living.
Then once that finished my step-dad decided to put on a tape of the documentary about bird flu. So maybe you could please fill the next few minutes with some mindless banter to distract me from the realisation of my own mortality and inability to create anything that will be of any use to anyone. Thank you.
