Wise words from a paranoid schizophrenic pedophile who drank water that came from lead pipes.

Sounds legit.

That can be an aim of art.  It is often the aim of my art.

I'd agree with it, but I think it's missing two very important words.

That's better. smile

I don't agree.  People produce for many reasons.  This is just one of many possible reasons.  It certainly isn't my reason.

Hey, paranoid schizophrenic pedophile leaded-water drinkers are people, too!  Don't be unkind and disrespectful.

Or someone might identify with that person and get all butt hurt.

Just venting from what I'm seeing on another thread.

Art is what we see as so important, we are willing to go hungry to present our view to the world. Maybe we change the world, maybe not --but we have to try.

yes, exactly; because in 5 minutes once the Lion has had his way with the model the photographer can take another picture to capture her inward significance...

Did I get that right?

Ever see that insurance clip from the 70s?
Man, wife and kids on a nice holiday... man decides to be 'one with the lions'.  Shortly after he exits his car on the Safari, he gets mauled and eaten.

Not every lion is Christian the lion.
Then again, he was raised by humans before he was let back into the wild.
