a thread for mundane ironists

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Theodore Roethke

I teach my sighs to lengthen into songs.


Or, here, into posts.

The darkness has it's own light.

Tell that to mine.

The body and the soul know how to play
In that dark world where gods have lost their way


Tell that to mine.

When I go mad,
I call my friends by phone:
I am afraid they might think
they're alone.


I do other things myself.

What is madness but nobility of soul at odds with circumstance?

Nobility of the soul. :lol:
Right?

The self says, I am;
The heart says, I am less;
The spirit says, you are Nothing.


Less than zero actually.

fuck off spook
At the beginning there was only Chaos, Night, dark Erebus, and deep Tartarus. Earth, the air and heaven had no existence. Firstly, blackwinged Night laid a germless egg in the bosom of the infinite deeps of Erebus, and from this, after the revolution of long ages, sprang the graceful Eros with his glittering golden wings, swift as the whirlwinds of the tempest. He mated in deep Tartarus with dark Chaos, winged like himself, and thus hatched forth our race, which was the first to see the light. That of the Immortals did nove yielded themselves to their lovers when almost at the end of their youth, being led away by the gift of a quail, a waterfowl, a goose, or a cock.

Define time:

Other than that we're back to this:

...someday he might finally confront whatever or whoever turned him into a rampaging caricature of Satyr. And, perhaps, be able to engage in a substantive exchange without configuring into the fulminating fanatic Kid that he becomes here.

Something has clearly pissed him off in life. Something that compels him to come into places like this and vent!!!

It seems [to me] that he needs to make scapegoats of those he construes to be part of whatever he is outraged about. But what is it? And how did it come about?

Wouldn't that be far more fascinating to explore than the "substance" of his rants?


But you won't go there. Instead, you keep promising us that you are about to vacate the premises.

So go already.

What are you suggesting, that the autistic define "a" differently?

Perhaps we should run this by Temple Grandin. Or Claire Danes?

God

You are temporarily immortal.


You know, one by one.

The sad truth about being an asshole is it works.

Being one Himself, he snorted.

People who don't get sarcasm are really, really, really smart.

Among other things: Huh?

Catholic priests oppose abortion because it leaves them with fewer kids to molest.
There. I said it.


Sure, that's one possible explanation.

Yes, atheists molest kids too. But when they're caught they get arrested, not reassigned.

Now that I think about it...

There is no past.
There is no future.
There is only this moment.
And you've wasted it reading this.


Then on to the next one.

Ernest Cline

Being human totally sucks most of the time. Videogames are the only thing that make life bearable.


No, really, some actually believe this.

You really think it’s that simple? I said. That you can just write a check for two hundred and forty billion dollars and fix all the world’s problems?

Probably not, right?

Some people define themselves by railing against all of the things they hate, while explaining why everyone else should hate it too.

And most of them end up here.

I confronted the grim realization that virtual sex, no matter how realistic, was really nothing but glorified, computer-assisted masturbation. At the end of the day, I was still a virgin, all alone in a dark room, humping a lubed-up toy.

Go figure, right?

Each enemy I vanquished dropped a pile of “Zenny coins” that I could later use to purchase armor, weapons, and potions from one of the bearded wise men scattered throughout each level.

A gamer thing, he guessed.

I was too weird, even for the weirdos.

More to the point, he couldn't be prouder.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir

The so-called 'discoveries' of the Impressionists could not have been unknown to the old masters; and if they made no use of them, it was because all great artists have renounced the use of effects. And in simplifying nature, they made it all the greater.


Let's call this an "art thing".

And if out of a million visitors there is even one to whom art means something, that is enough to justify museums.

Tell me that's not horseshit, he grumbled.

Berthe Morisot was a painter full of eighteenth-century delicacy and grace; in a word, the last elegant and 'feminine' artists since Fragonard.

You tell me: https://www.google.com/search?source=un ... =625&dpr=1

I've known painters who never did any good work because instead of painting their models they seduced them.

Yo, phoneutria! Explain the difference.

About 1883 something like a break occurred in my work. I had reached the end of 'impressionism,' and I had come to realize that I did not know how to paint or draw.

Yo, anyone! Explain this please.

I have a horror of the word 'flesh', which has become so shopworn. Why not 'meat' while they're about it? What I like is skin, a young girl's skin that is pink and shows that she has a good circulation.

And then all the other parts of her.

I'm just a nihilist, standing in front of a void, asking it to reject all religious and moral principles in the belief that life is meaningless


Yeah? Okay, prove it!

"don't forget to fuck yourself" kierkegaard

Must be that other Kierkegaard.

orwell that ends well

In Newspeak for example.

I took something out of context and now I can't put it back

Well, at least there was a context. Right, Mr. Intellectual Contraption?

seventy percent of the earth is covered in water. the rest is sadness

Tears, in other words.

learn to live without your self

In other words, on this side of the grave too.

Camille Pissarro

Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.


Come on, even here?

All the sorrow, all the bitterness, all the sadness, I forget them and ignore them in the joy of working.

Obviously not on the assembly line or in the cubicle.

It is absurd to look for perfection.

What, even here?

God takes care of imbeciles, little children and artists.

Anyone here know why?

It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.

Unless of course he's wrong.

Paint the essential character of things.

Or, sure, just make something up.

Paul Gauguin

I shut my eyes in order to see.


Let's try that here.

Stay firmly in your path and dare; be wild two hours a day!

Or, if you dare, three or four.

If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue.

A weeping willow for example.

I have come to an unalterable decision - to go and live forever in Polynesia. Then I can end my days in peace and freedom, without thoughts of tomorrow and this eternal struggle against idiots.

Or, as we call them here, Kids.

Art is either revolution or plagiarism,

Actually it's the other way around.

Where do we come from? What are We? Where are we going?

Actually it's the other way around.

I know. Don't you just hate that?

oh look it’s a hell of my own making

You know, after years of practice.

no i don’t know what the fuck is going on, what do i look like, someone who knows what the fuck is going on?

Anyone here look like that?

You know, the Gods. Or the stars.

Robert Mapplethorpe

I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for things I've never seen before.


No, really, Kids, some people actually do.

When I work, and in my art, I hold hands with God.

My guess: not your God.

The more pictures you see, the better you are as a photographer.

On the other hand, the more posts you read here...?

I come from suburban America. It was a very safe environment and it was a good place to come from in that it was a good place to leave.

Lots of good places to leave, right?

When I’m behind a camera I forget I exist.

And I forget what this means.

I don't know why my pictures come out looking so good. I just don't get it.

Blessed by God, perhaps.
