Alpo:  Your analogy fails.  By saying ethnic food, you mean anything outside of American food which is almost all food.  By me saying modern art, I am refering to a subset of art that was created within the last 100-150 years.  It is a much smaller subset similar to me saying fast food = yuck and by fast food, I mean hamburgers, fries and coke.

It didn't really fail since you understood my point. Modern Art might be smaller subset but large enoug to make sweeping statements like "Modern Art = Yuck" really quite nonsensical.
Since you insist on being argumentative, go take 50 pictures from different art eras and ask anyone on the street.  Very few people are going to have difficult in labeling which ones are "modern art".  They may be confused on Impressionism, but the styles I named would not be confused by anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of art.

Most of the people are wrong about everything anyway. :D

Orthonorm: I have zero interest in spending any more time explaining to you that Hitler did not like modern art.  If you can't be bothered to google it and see the bounty of evidence about it, neither can I.

Google it? Dude, I've read it in a relatively critical fashion along with pretty much everything who was screaming into a microphone around that time about modern decadence as well.

If you are incapable of being able to do more than give quotes of Hitler criticizing "artistic movements" (an entire modern notion) rather than have an interest in understanding how in fact, Hitler in that very act was engaging in modernity and that the entire Nazi apparatus was fashioned out of modernity and served only to further it, which often calls for a reactionary screed against modernity to do so.

Trivia is trivia.

The first thing that came to my mind I read "purple clowns with green noses" was....."don't feed the narcissist."  ;D ;D

I am quoting you Jonathan, just cause to keep the gratuitous insults going against. It's awesome how you all do.

Anyhoo, Tri, I really don't care what people might think in a poll about what Hitler liked and what he didn't. But since you like trivia, so be it. Here is an obvious one:



Do you think Hitler approved or enjoyed such artistic demonstrations?

How would you describe in a general aesthetic sense these parades?

We can watch The Triumph of the Will later and discuss where exactly it fits in aesthetically.

Here is a speech from the Hitler. (youtube might warn you that it is offensive)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGhdX1SI3KY&bpctr=1370563202

How do you describe the editing of this speech and how it is related to the content? Are you familiar with how such programs were edited at this time for such events? How would you describe Hitler's famous haircut and mustache, especially in light of certain fashion trends within women's fashion during the Weimar Republic which I think we both can agree casts an enormous shadow over the Nazi project.

What about his delivery of his speech? What "art form" does such expressive gesticulation remind you? Have you seen the Great Dictator? Hitler did as we are told, just as we are told we was an enormous Chaplin fan even though he thought Chaplin was a Jew. We certainly have to admit what sorta milieu belongs to. Have you seen Modern Times?

I wouldn't argue that simply modernism and such were some forces which shaped Hitler's actions and those of the Nazis (although it much more interesting this sorta kaffee klatch talk), I'll further and take your modernist stance and speak to the Hitler's opinion on art and the aesthetic. He was a modernist and lover of it par excellence.

In what sorta conception of "art" do it become so radically politicized in the pedestrian sense as to be something to be fought via art itself?

What's the first word which lends its first letter to Nazi? Under what conditions does such a thing become made the center of some enormous project to restore?

I have to figure out how to make a TV signal enter my house. And how I am going to become mayor of my own place again.

Oh one last note, no matter what Hitler said, he didn't quite love so much what he claimed to. Read up on his actual listening habits as we understand them. He taste in theater, film, etc.

That Hitler lied I am sure is gonna disappoint.

I will repost my original statement.

Quote
I classify Modern Art as anything similar to cubism, surrealism, expressionism, futurism, abstract, etc.

And objectively speaking, it is terrible. It is the one thing I agree with Hitler on.  :P

When you explain to me how your latest post relates in the slightest to what I said, then we can discuss the aesthetics of Nazi parades.

If you disagree with my statement that Hitler disliked modern art, at least, for pete's sakes, take a position and make it.  I feel like I am saying the sky is blue and you are disputing that by arguing vociferously that cows give milk.

...and that post still doesn't answer what I said.  Just because he employed modern videography, speech techniques, hair styles and whatever else you would like to ramble on about, it still has nothing to do with his taste in art... Dude.

tooday i briefly checked a romanian orthodox website "razboi intru cuvant" ("war in the word" ) which i maybe do every 2 or 3 months. my god, i think its both funny and depressing. but, i don't think it represents more than a tiny number of hardcore activists. according to what i saw romania is gonna soon be taken over by a homosexual cabal. that's when it's not the jews doing it.

hey romaios.

is it totally possibly that the prophecy of the destruction of tyre is actually pointing towards the destruction of porphyry's kata christianon (since he was from tyre)

your thoughts on this please

hey romaios.

is it totally possibly that the prophecy of the destruction of tyre is actually pointing towards the destruction of porphyry's kata christianon (since he was from tyre)

No. It's about Hong Kong coming under Chinese rule in 1997.   ::)

The Germans would probably get rid of you because you're not "arian".

tooday i briefly checked a romanian orthodox website "razboi intru cuvant" ("war in the word" ) which i maybe do every 2 or 3 months. my god, i think its both funny and depressing. but, i don't think it represents more than a tiny number of hardcore activists. according to what i saw romania is gonna soon be taken over by a homosexual cabal. that's when it's not the jews doing it.

I've been meaning to ask you and Romaios. Is Romania all dark and mist-filled and home to werewolves and such like in the movies?

whats with the justice scales as your avatar?

you know I've tried every levi jeans, 505, 569, 513, 514, etc.

but I always was resistant to 501 because ya know "middle aged balding male" has sort of been attached to it for a long time with that stonewashed look.

but I think it may be the best fitting jean for me.

i just hate the way it feels

I wouldn't have to keep repeating the same joke if my parents had fed me more fish oil as a child.
