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.

Here is the entire collection of his own signature threads here:

And, oddly enough, it's in the Rant House and not on the philosophy board!!

Yo, Carleas! What's up with that?

Gustave Courbet

I deny that art can be taught, or, in other words, maintain that art is completely individual, and that the talent of each artist is but the result of his own inspiration and his own study of past tradition.


In other words, whatever that means.

It is fatal for art if it is forced into official respectability and condemned to sterile mediocrity.

In other words, whatever that means.

To be able to translate the customs, ideas and appearance of my times as I see them - in a word, to create a living art - this has been my aim.

You know, like you don't here.

The state is not competent in artistic matters.

Let alone the philosopher-kings.

I too am a government.

Well, once he might have been.

France is the only nation in which astoundingly small numbers of civilized patrons reside.

Well, once it might have been.

See, what I'm not up against?

His "philosophy" here at ILP is clearly just a preposterous rant.

But: I've always been willing to forgive that from the fulminating fanatics over the years if they were at least capable of holding their own with me in the repartee department. That's why I'm ever and always after those like phoneutria. She and I are far, far removed philosophically and politically. But in an exchange of caustic "barbs", now, that would be a challenge!!!

Instead, I get stuck with these guys. Not only is their intellectual depth an utter disgrace to real philosophers, but when they try to be "really, really clever" and go after me, I get the "wit" above.

tiny nietzsche

I took the "which disney princess are you?" quiz and got "dies in a pandemic"


Dare me to take it.

life is like an ocean: it will kill you

Simple: stay out of it.

and those who were watching football were thought to be insane by those who could not see the game

Next up: those watching baseball.

man is condemned to free britney

Or, for better or worse, condemned to ignore her.

me: do I exist?
horse: I am a horse
me: that's easy for you to say


Next up: does the horse exist?

mars doesn't know who the fuck elon musk is

Unlike, say, Texas.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Art is about emotion; if art needs to be explained it is no longer art.


Next up: explaining this.

The pain passes, but the beauty remains.

Or: The pain passes, but the ugly remains.

One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one's capacity.

For some here, that's every post.

One morning, one of us ran out of the black, it was the birth of Impressionism.

Starting now, this is a true story.

Regularity, order, desire for perfection destroy art. Irregularity is the basis of all art.

You know, like "I" in the is/ought world.

Why shouldn’t art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world.

Louise Berliawsky Nevelson

Greatness breaks laws.


Greater still: getting away with it.

I believe in my work and in the joy of it. You have to be with the work and the work has to be with you. It absorbs you totally and you absorb it totally.

Next up: I believe in my distractions.

I see no reason why I should tickle stones or waste time on polishing bronze.

Let's decide if this is rational.

In my studio I'm as happy as a cow in her stall. That's the only place where everything is all right.

You know, like we feel here. :lol:

There's no denying that Caruso came with a voice...that Beethoven came with music in his soul...Picasso was drawing like an angel in the crib. You're born with it.

Sure, use that as as excuse, Kids. Given all the gifts that you were never born with

In the end, as you get older and older, your life is your life, and you are alone with it.

For example, all the way to the bitter end. You know, if the end is bitter.

so sad today

wish everything was as easy as believing my own bullshit


You know, if it is bullshit.

can’t tell if people know they are full of shit or have no idea

Imagine her here then!

in my head i’m having sex

Aren't we all?

don’t recommend me anything except a peaceful death

Unless of course that's a contradiction in terms.

my insomnia will always be here for me

Yo, Olivia!

rediscovering nothingness

Me? I'm still stuck with what I first discovered.
