I'm uncomfortable reading any debate over one member's child's abilities. It's weird - can we not?
Well, nobody else but the child himself brought the child into the discussion, then doubling down on the claim that "she made an astute observation" while employing her as an unwitting pawn to promote the new Potts. Definitely weird.

Most (normal) parents just want the kid to finish the fucking mac and cheese and get on with the rest of their day.

And then there’s this little fuck.

Why does this thread attract so much human garbage?
Wow, talk about completely unhinged.

Uhhh...let me guess...is it because the rest of us aren't as special as you are, is that it???

Cue up the further 40 pages of foo-pompous intellectual wilderness.

The thread was much better prior to your constant commandeering of it, and then your sycophant tipped the garbage way past the angle of repose. Seriously, nobody can posit a single viewpoint that you do not challenge ad nauseum if it doesn't stroke you and your pretensions, followed by your typical barrage of insults. It's beyond tedious; it's truly pathetic.

as a post-pandemic project i think i might try to organize a retrospective for an artist whose work should probably be better known.
Good on you.
Who, and where, if you can share the name and place?

That discussion would likely be much more interesting than any of the preceding.

PS: I have been meaning to ask: what is the image in your avatar?

It's spring and I totally dig the Boullourec for Hay Palisade collection, expecially this sexy lounger :inlove:

That piece/collection is OK to great.
The pieces with arms are awkward-clunky imo; the table and armless chairs/bench very good; the lounge the jewel.

The lounge needs a lot of visual space around it though; even better a good simple background so that the floating aspect really reads.

I posted about an antique dish and my daughter’s experience using a spoon. Since then, you and others have unleashed a barrage of attacks on my parenting and my daughter’s mental abilities.

There is real sickness here, which I’ve come to expect. But that others seem to be okay with it is really quite disappointing.

i'd come into a few pieces and the more time i spent with them i began to realize the work was special and really good. unfortunately the artist died some time ago, and somehow in the course of my poking around i could see how his work fit into a bigger, surprisingly vibrant circle (maybe even a school)

and so i started meeting and buying from his contemporaries, and i'd talk about how i found them and they'd light up at hearing old friends' names, and i felt i could really begin to see the current, and also where i might start sourcing and collating and shaping an exhibit. if that dig yields the quality of the work that i already have it would be a lot of fun i think and it would be just awesome to kick some of that enthusiasm into the future. we will see.

I like Foo’s contributions. He has always posted interesting items and argues passionately for them. The Song Dynasty dish is one of the most interesting things posted in this thread for months, and the Carl Pott cutlery was good too. He stimulates discussion, in contrast to the “cool shit bro” brigade who never get beyond an unthinking gut response — “I like that”/“I don’t like this”. Yes he’s abrasive and sometimes a bad sport, but who really cares — it’s part of the fun.

I will not sit in a seat on the subway that someone just got up from. Unless a beautiful woman. For some reason, that makes it okay.
You sit down on the subway. The seat is conspicuously warm.

1. It is warm because a sweaty fat man flatulated excessively.

2. It is warm because a pretty young woman sat there on her long ride home.

I dare you to claim it matters not which is true.

I stand by all of that 100%.

I think you misunderstood my point. I wasn't attacking you or your daughter. I don't give a shit about your kid even if she is the next Mozart, Curie, and Angelou wrapped into one.

What I was saying is that your story reads almost perfectly like the bullshit stories people post about their kids on the internet. If it happened, great. If it didn't, great.

So, I’m a liar now? I mean, come on.
