Well, the shark was my idea, I just didn't have a big enough glass tank handy.



I simply don't have the means of my ideas. I blame SFers not buying my Schneider wares.

Don't do it for me, do it for Art.

Calling Lichtenstein "theft" is like the most myopic thing ever. The original is mass produced, printed from ink to newsprint on a halftone pattern. Now he took that image and painted each dot by hand, basically taking something machine-made and transforming it into something hand-made. And there's all sorts of symbolic/cultural/whatever baggage that goes with it. That in itself is what makes the picture original.

You don't have to like it, but calling it theft is retarded.

I think everyone can agree it sucks for the author of a splendid but overlooked book whose work is adapted into a giant blockbuster by some name-brand director who proceeds to get all the fame and the credit. That doesn't mean it should be prevented from ever happening, and I don't want to get into what we term the overarching process, even in shorthand, but it certainly sucks for the original guy.

And writing that reminded me of this:
Quote:
You know Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak as Apple's founders, but you probably don't know the tale of third founder Ron Wayne. The Chicago Tribune presents the somewhat sad story of the then 42-year-old, who designed the original logo and wrote the manual for the Apple I computer—but got out of the company after just 12 days, spooked by 21-year-old Jobs' wild spending habits and the fact that he was the only founder with any assets that creditors could seize. So he cashed in his 10% stake for $800. Had he held onto it, it would be worth $22 billion.

Wayne's current reality is a much, much more modest one. The Tribune paints a picture of a man who cashes in his Social Security checks, then heads to play penny slots at a Nevada casino. He sells stamps and rare coins to pad his income, has never owned an Apple product, and hasn't heard from Jobs in years. "I don't waste my time getting frustrated about things that didn't work out," he says. "Why should I go back and 'what if' myself? If I did, I'd be in a rubber room by now." But then he adds, "Unfortunately, my whole life has been a day late and a dollar short."

The original was not mass produced, it was done by hand. Then it was mass produced. Then L traced it by hand, mass produced it again, and sold it.

(where did my big long poast go?)

I get it, it's just lazy, it's dishonest (ask the original artists how they feel?), and even the idea was by that time unoriginal (or, in SW&D terms, *played out*).

Edit: also I wish I wasn't on my tiny phone; shortcuts making these last posts sound more contentious than intended.

Too bad you're a giant. Why aren't you Asian? I would spend money on your sweaty pants.

How can you be sure I'm not Asian ?


I know nothing about sweaty pants.

wtf.

No prob. Now it's just a matter of trying to figure out which beads to select.
