Why Modern Art is Absolute Crap

This guy articulates what I have been thinking for decades. I think my first tip-off came from Ayn Rand. Something about someone vomiting on a canvas and passing it off as a form of art.

Then there was that thing, about ten years ago, about the shit machine.

About thirty-five years ago, a guy I knew decided he was going to be an artist.

He threw together a series of paintings that looked to me like the creations had been stolen from some first grade classroom.

One of the "paintings" featured a human figure, it was impossible to determine gender, smelling his (or her) own fingers.

The "artist" explained the painting to me. It was a guy smelling his fingers after he had just explored a woman's vagina. And he was savoring the aroma.

The name of the painting was, "An Intimate Moment."

Not being an artist myself, I just accepted what was said.

The funny part came when this guy managed to finagle his collection into an exclusive art show at the Hamilton Public Library. (Where else?)

I started noticing that some of the attendees were taking "A Private Moment," seriously. They started speculating about the "meaning" of this piece of work. It was amazing to hear the various sophisticated opinions that were being rendered, none of which were remotely close to the actual story about a guy sniffing his fingers. "Is that a man? Or a woman?" "What is he doing?"

It was "piss your pants" funny. But I was the only one laughing. These people were taking this stuff seriously.

Paul Joseph Watson does what I can't do in this presentation. He takes words I don't know right out of my mouth. When I try to think up an example of what I think much of modern art consists of, all I can come up with is a photograph of one of my own turds sitting at the bottom of a toilet bowl. But that's not yet "meaningful" enough.

So my thoughts turn to diarrhea.

And just when I think I have done a masterful job of exposing the utter horse-shit that dominates every nook and cranny of the remnants of western culture, along comes Paul Joseph Watson to expose me as a rank amateur.



There has been a lot of talk, lately, about efforts to censor the internet. None of this shocks or alarms me. This is how the world works. But for those who desire to know how the world really works, the desire for knowledge cannot be blocked. Instead of accepting what they are told by the established powers, be it via government controlled "education," government subsidized "news," or government subsidized "entertainment," those stubborn enough to drill, baby, drill, will always end up leading the charge.

Each human being is born with only one brain. Either it is employed as designed, or it becomes useless.

It reminds me of something I once read on a washroom wall:

"If in the end, it is determined, that man will lose his most valuable possession, he will grab his cock, and lose his mind."

  1. You can market a turd as the best Black Angus beef money can buy and you'll always find more than one person that will buy it, eat it, relish each bite, and swear it is the best thing since sliced bread.

    1. Hehe..... reminds me of a guy I knew who sold a piece of potato to another guy and told him it was White African hashish. The room where he smoked it smelled like a fast food restaurant. But he did get stoned on it. ;)

Poor Uber Driver Oh my. This is a sad story. Here is an Uber driver voicing his concerns in the Uber driver's forum about whether or not his "sharing economy" gig is paying off. It's possible that this is not a genuine post from a genuine Uber driver. I see that. It's the kind of schlopp I would write if I were in a mischievous mood. On the other hand, given what I already know about the Uber scam, and the people it exploits in order to get them to employ "assets they already own," in Tim Hudak's famous phrase, it's entirely reasonable to believe that this is a REAL Uber driver, who is just beginning to figure out who is making money, or should be making money, and who is getting royally boned. (See my story about the Uber driver who drove a football player from Chicago to Buffalo for minus $38.50.) I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That is why, when people asked me why, instead of tolerating the City of Hamilton's demonstrably abs…
My Encounter with an Uber Cab Driver I had an encounter with an Uber cabbie this morning. When I pulled into the parking lot at the front of my townhouse complex, I noticed this guy sitting in a small, Uber-like car, staring at this dash-mounted smart-phone, and looking confused. He was sitting in front of unit #1. I got out of my car and started walking toward my own unit which is also numbered. It's not a gigantic complex, so in my simple, low-tech, cab driver's mind, I figure that if you are looking for a unit number at an address, the first thing you should do is look at the number on the unit. If that number is "1" the next thing you do is look at the number on the next unit. Often, though not always, that number is either a "2" or a "3" depending upon the numbering format. In my complex, the next number is "2" and so on. For a taxi driver that information can be critical. So this guy looks up at me as I am walking by, and ask…
Uber's Ace in the Hole is Regime Uncertainty The "Success" of Uber does not come from its technology, but from its ability to recognize and exploit regime uncertainty. I quote from Peter Schiff's article, "Making America Confused Again," "It looks likely the next four years will bring an unprecedented level of regime uncertainty. This is a term coined by economist Robert Higgs. It describes a pervasive lack of confidence among investors in their ability to foresee the extent to which future government actions will alter their private-property rights. Higgs uses this concept to explain the seriousness and prolonged duration of some economic crises, like the Great Depression." Those engaged in the taxi industry know only too well how government actions alter their property rights. The sudden, pivotal re-writing of taxi bylaws across North America over the last few years has completely destroyed the lifetime investments of thousands of taxi driver…
