art fart

i think it’s annoying the way people in san francisco like to say that they LOVE art so much they’re gonna come in their pants and there was only 30 people at the booksmith for the dan clowes signing last month. i don’t get it. i can only think of 2 possibilities: a) people think comics is not art  b) they don’t have a good taste at all, fine art my ass!

i think it was totally embarrassing when i asked people if they were going and they replied “who is that guy?” boooooooooo. and it was people involved in galleries and artists and stuff. i  dunno, i always had a hard time getting good comics in my hand across the ocean so i worship what i have now and i think a lot of people here are spoiled and don’t care much about awesome events like daniel clowes in san francisco talking about his new amazing book. anyway, life goes on. i’ve been thinking about it a lot lately and i won’t facebook about it cause facebook is lame.

One response to “art fart

  1. off the bat I fully agree with your view on facebook. The bs annoys me, my friends have been bugging me since high school to create account and I looked at them straight in the eye and told, “fuck ’em”

    I can also relate to your story about people who claim they love art or even music. I know some people whom are head of heels when it come mainstream artist of popular people but when one of our local talents is hosting a gallery or a small time indie band is playing in a smokey bar they pass. To me people like this do not really appreciation or understanding of art , photography music or whatever all they care about is the image or appearance of looking urban or being a hipster.
