*Glares back into the Twentieth Century through the lens of YouTube and scratches his head. What a completely broken and horrific and arbitrary bracket of time I was born into. What a nightmare. * No wonder the art and literature was and were so angry and or broken. When you look at the shapes and forms Picasso made with his pencil and brush – they don’t really fit the blunt smudgy medium he used. He was trying to do surgery with a spork. It is painful to look at. Comparing the perfect and effortless gradations and nimble smooth lines of a vector program with a paintbrush and pencil is like comparing the pianoforte to the harpsichord. One gives you tinny staccato sounds – one has more sustained range and a fuller more refined and powerful sound. You can see this when you compare the music of Mozart and Beethoven. When I look at Picasso I see a bunch of poorly painted smudgy nonsense that smart and rich people have decided is the most important art of the 20th century. I will give you a hint kiddies. Picasso is a joke and you are the punchline. If the internet existed in the jazz age Picasso would have been on 4chan and he would have been a 10/10 troll.
