Gauguin Joyfullness.jpg

Arearea (Joyfulness)
Paul Gauguin

From "Bandersnatch:"

"One of my lefties has proposed deplatforming Gauguin, because he took underage "wives" in Tahiti, and spread syphilis.

The two major questions this raises are (i) can we separate the art from the artist?, and (ii) to what degree should we apply modern Western standards to another age and culture?

Gauguin got permission from the girl's parents, does that make it OK if she's thirteen?

Should Gauguin now be Badperson? If so, who else?"

It's a good question, and one that applies cross the entire art world..acting, literature, music, etc.

Addendum: I enjoyed Bandersnatch's phrasing..."One of my lefties..." I have an image in my mind's eye of a soundproof room deep in the bowels of Chez Bandersnatch, filled with loud and obnoxious liberals chained to the walls, being forced to listen to recordings of Milton Friedman and Barry Goldwater.

8 Eh, if we didn't separate the artist from his art we would sit in our rooms and stare at the wall. Artists are flawed, fallen people just like us; arguably, their fallen status is the source of their art. Yes, I listen to Wagner (antisemite and all-around asshole) and read Dostoyevsky (compulsive gambler) and watch Hollywood movies (too many sins to enumerate).

Well, I don't much care for this piece, so I don't see an issue with 1.

As for 2, I see a categorical difference between people who grow up in a different culture with different standards of behavior and people who grow up in our culture and seek out those other standards of behavior. I have much more sympathy for someone who does something we think of as weird or creepy if they grew up where that practice as common than I do with someone who grew up here and should know better and still does it.

66 1. Yes, it is possible to separate the artist from the art. As Rightists, we have no choice now-a-days. A casual patron of the arts or the connoisseur need no know or care that Jacques Louis David voted to send hundreds of innocent people to death just because they didn't share his politics, that the Romans were total bastards, or that Qin Shihuangdi was a total psychopath. These groups were masters of their crafts and created some of the greatest works of art that can, and should, be loved, admired and studied for ages to come.

2. None.

76 "Deplatforming" is an ugly neologism that reduces actual works of art and places where art is seen (like books, plays or a movie) to a neutral "forum" that, according to the "deplatformer" is something they have "provided" to the artist.

It's the speech police equivalent of "you didn't build that" --so the "platform" has some kind of right to shut it down.

Staying within the art theme:



"Some there are who are nothing else than a passage for food and
augmentors of excrement and fillers of privies, because through them no
other things in the world, nor any good effects are produced, since
nothing but full privies results from them." - Leonardo da Vinci





The people whose only lasting impression on the world will be full privies seek to tell us what is important and great.

124 So Banders article says Gauguin (who abandoned his wife and children by the way to go to Tahiti for his early sex tourism gig) had relations with a 13 year old and two 14 year olds, one of whom had sex professionally. In other words, local culture was more attuned to biology. Sexual maturity is lots earlier in females than emotional maturity and, also, earlier than our legal culture accepts. And Gauguin became syphilitic there. But how did these islanders get so much syphilis? The answer is that Gauguin was not the first European to arrive in Tahiti looking for sex.
Anyway, have always enjoyed the primitivism of Gauguin even if the person was a scumbag of the highest order.

According to the internet - The French Disease was known in 1494/5. Even so, some blame Columbus for bringing it to Europe from the New World 1492, while others blame the Europeans for taking it to the New World.

An effective treatment wasn't discovered until the 20th century and penicillin wasn't discovered until 1940.

Life expectancy doesn't mean that people grew old & dropped dead before they reached 40. It's a mathematical average. The average age from centuries ago seem so low because many died from childhood diseases. If one survived past age 5, one could expect to live a decent life span.

Before European contact iron was unknown in Polynesia.

During the early voyages, the island women would have sex with you for a single iron nail.

Sometimes the structural integrity of the ships was put at risk by this fact, as was the case with HMS Dolphin in 1765.

Later visitors, such as Captain Cook, were savvy to this, and carried extra kegs of nails on board for "trading" purposes.

That's one of the examples I used when corresponding with Bandersnatch!

I think that the line becomes more clear when art crosses into overtly political messages. So much of modern art is shit (figuratively and, alas, sometime literally) because the artists insist upon beating us over the head with their politics.


It diminishes art.
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 09, 2019 09:48 AM (wYseH)

Maybe in some cases, but politics has been a part of art since the beginning of civilization. In some of the greatest cases of ancient art, the Great Sphynx, the Column of Trajan, the Parthenon, the Bayeux Tapestry, the Apadana, politics is inseparable. Remove the politics from these works and they lose meaning and purpose. If the viewer cannot appreciate a work of art because of the politics involved, that's on the viewer, not the art and not the artist. Some of my favorite works are by German Socialists during the Interwar Period. I like a lot of Nazi art, too. And I adore the works of Jacques Louis David.

Posted by: Kris at January 09, 2019 10:07 AM (OyyDO)

244 All I know about Gauguin really comes from knowing that the lead character, Charles Stirckland, in the Somerset Maugham novel The Moon and Sixpence is based on him, and that the character is a brilliant artist -- and a rat:

"After helping Strickland recover from a life-threatening illness, Stroeve is repaid by having his wife, Blanche, abandon him for Strickland. Strickland later discards the wife; all he really sought from Blanche was a model to paint, not serious companionship, and it is hinted in the novel's dialogue that he indicated this to her and she took the risk anyway."

Strickland dies of leprosy in the end, so there's that.

Lefties were all so excited when they thought they could blame that on some white guy, now it's turned out it was done by two black gang-bangers so this story is gonna be dropped faster than a hot potato.

Also a good lesson on how "reliable" eyewitness testimony is sometimes complete bullshit. 4 eyewitnesses said they saw the white guy do it. The arrested black perp has already confessed, they've got the gun, and admit that the white guy in the truck was just an innocent bystander trying to escape from being shot himself.

The financier, Low Taek Jho, was charged in federal court in New York late last year in connection with theft and money laundering. Prosecutors have pursued related cases concerning ex-Goldman Sachs bankers they allege were involved in laundering money and a Justice Department employee who admitted to helping the lobbying campaign.

Yeah, this is one of those statistics issues that annoys me.

Statistically, yes, the "life expectancy" (average age from birth to death) was much lower, in, say, the 1700s.

But much of the improvement to that number has come from dramatically lowering infant mortality rates and conquering many of the formerly deadly childhood diseases.

Look at the founding fathers -- many of them lived in to their '70s and '80s, it was not unheard of at all for people to live what we would consider a "full life."

One thing that men forget is that a lot of women didn't live through childbirth in those days. Sepsis and an inability to stop internal bleeding were probably the biggest causes. C-sections were known from Roman times (hence the name) but we don't like to mention that the mother never survived such an operation in those days.

Read the lyrics of "Brown Sugar," "Stray Cat Blues," and "Under My Thumb." What the grandpas of rock get away with is astonishing, especially since it's not like Jagger and Co are SJWs. They've made the obligatory jab at conservative pols on rare occasions, I think, but it's not like Mick is lecturing audiences about global warming or meat eating.
One of the weirdest and most repellent movies I've ever seen is "Performance" which Jagger made in 1968. (It was released in 1970 with an X rating, which killed it at the box office, but it has since acquired a cult following). Jagger played a drugged out rock star who is living in a menage a trois with 1 woman (Keef's main squeeze, Anita Pallenberg) and a young girl 16 year old Michele Breton. She was a French runaway who ended up in Swinging London, taking every drug anybody gave her. The co-director, Donald Cammell, put her in the movie. She did sex scenes with Jagger and Pallenberg. After the filming was over, Cammell just dumped her and she vanished. Nobody cared. There are people who argue that "Performance" is a masterpiece. None of those reviewers ever question wtf a 16 year old drugged up girl is doing in a bathtub with 2 adults.James Fox was so f'ed up by the experience of making that movie he became an evangelical Christian after it was over and stopped making films for 10 years or so.

He discovered Australia on his ship Endeavor. He landed in Botany Bay, about from where one of my good friends and business associates lives.

Years later, the Endeavor was sold into private hands and renamed Lord Sammich and Sandwich and was used by the Brits as a troop transport during the Revolution. It was believed that she was scuttled in Narragansett Bay to be used as part of a blockade during the Revolution. Last year, her location was finally discovered right outside Newport harbor. That's only a couple miles from where I live.

You go about the drudgery of your day-to-day life slaving away for the state, but every morning is an increase of 1% chance that you can revolt. You can increase that percentage by revolutionary acts (such as telling the truth!) and the faster the revolution comes, the higher the chance that it will succeed. Conversely, if you don't do anything, the percentage will hit 100% but more people will die. The revolution will also have more resistance to it since people will become accustomed to socialism and therefore the revolution has a much higher chance of failing.

Werner Klemperer, "Klink," has another distinction (besides that his father was noted conductor Otto Klemperer): He and Roman Polanski owned the same car. Not at the same time. Polanski had ordered a Mercedes 300SEL 6.3, a hot rod sedan for those days, then declined to take delivery (long story), so Klemperer bought it and drove it to work at Hogan's Heroes for years.

439 421 Completely OT:
Last night I had an idea: What if we showed young people what it's like to live in a socialist country? Just dropping them off in one doesn't seem to work, since they get the Potemkin tour. So, why not a video game?
Here's what I thought of: A FPS-type game that both allows you to see the horrors of socialism and overthrow the inevitably corrupt government. You go about the drudgery of your day-to-day life slaving away for the state, but every morning is an increase of 1% chance that you can revolt. You can increase that percentage by revolutionary acts (such as telling the truth!) and the faster the revolution comes, the higher the chance that it will succeed. Conversely, if you don't do anything, the percentage will hit 100% but more people will die. The revolution will also have more resistance to it since people will become accustomed to socialism and therefore the revolution has a much higher chance of failing.
What do you guys think?

Last year, the mother of a good friend of mine was diagnosed with lung tumors; she was in her 80's, probably could have made it another 6 months to a year with palliative treatment. She opted for the surgery, and was dead within 48 hours. As the doctors say, the surgery was a great success, it was a shame the patient died.

494 Four underage boys broke into a Houston-area CarMax lot on Sunday and were caught on surveillance cameras, according to a Facebook page for a constable in Harris County, Texas, which includes Houston and some surrounding cities. The page belongs to constable Mark Herman, and his post said four suspects were arrested after breaking into the dealership, stealing some keys and crashing vehicles into other vehicles on the lot.

In all, the post on Herman's Facebook page said, the suspects managed to crash into more than 20 vehicles and cause about $800,000 in damage. Photos from Herman's post show Dodge Challenger Scat Pack with the front end ripped off, a Corvette Z06 with scrape lines all down the side and a busted rearview mirror, a Ford Mustang that looks like it came from a car meet, a Porsche Boxster with a nasty hit to the front end, and plenty of other cars that look like they all got into a fight with each other -- with some faring better than others.

When deputies arrived, Herman's post said, the suspects took off on foot but were later caught and arrested.

Because it wasn't. I dated a college junior as a HS senior - and I think that is almost too close in age honestly

Been together ever since, glad he still puts up with my old a**

The image of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer standing stoically together schooling the president was an instant hit on Twitter.

591 The problem with the painting is not so much underage sex but bestiality. Those things are not quite human.

Mohammad is brown and he hates Christians/Jews, so he gets a total pass.

I think it's the second thing that matters most.
After all, there's no reason to think that Mo was any "browner" than Jesus or Moses.

Well, except for leftist mythology, which determines all things.

594 This recent "non-personing" craze engaged in by the crazies is simply the application of the idea of the smorgasbord to the principle of misanthropy.

595 I thought that girls who dated our agemates in high school were weird and creepy. It was like dating your little brother or something. You at least wanted someone who equaled you in "years past puberty" no?

596 the Hadith claims Mo was white and maybe even a ginger. when he went grey he dyed his beard red.

599 Probably the most overrated artist in history.

600 "I enjoyed Bandersnatch's phrasing...'One of my lefties...' I have an image in my mind's eye of a soundproof room deep in the bowels of Chez Bandersnatch, filled with loud and obnoxious liberals chained to the walls, being forced to listen to recordings of Milton Friedman and Barry Goldwater."

That could be a Cox and Forkum cartoon.

601 Someguy "This would make a better art piece than today's piece."

That's not one of Gauguin's best paintings, but he did amazing things with color.
Because this is 2019 America, and I disagree with your taste in art, it is necessary to denounce you as heretic and unperson. :-D

603 If we all agree that Muhammad was worthless pedophile, I can agree to throw Gauguin under the bus.

604 I haven't heard much more about the mother in that child shooting case being Facebook friends with one of the killers.
Was that just a coincidence, or did she avoid directing attention to some wrongdoing of her own by letting the red truck story divert scrutiny from her own actions?
