33 Jesus, that's horrible. I guess I could give him some props for anticipating computer animation, but that's it.

I could read politics into it: see how the serrations of the wood fence create the sense of shark's teeth on the wall of the factory, which is impervious and indifferent in its horrid windowless world.

But that would give it too much credit. It's commie claptrap drawn without depth or texture or emotion. It's an immature idea slapped on canvas.

43 Proof his brain is functioning:

BIDEN: "A lot of you know the Delmarva Peninsula, it's all three feet above water, a lot of great fishing and hunting, duck hunting. And I walked through the estuaries, and a hunter guy said 'Damn, Joe, what did you take my gun for?' I said, let me ask you, those cop-killer bullets, I said, how many deer you know wearing Kevlar vests? Raise your hand. You really need one? And hell, if you need 100 clips or 30 clips in a weapons, then you shouldn't be hunting, man! You're dangerous! You're dangerous. (applause) I'm not joking. You know, he'd say to me, take my shotgun. I said, I have three - now I have five, because my son died and I have three of his. That's five shotguns, but they're under lock and key. You leave your key in your car out here and a 14-year-old comes along, picks it up and takes it off and gets in a crash, you're liable. Well, if you leave a weapon sitting on the table with no trigger lock on - "

93 I'm going with Precisionism, a distinctly American movement focused on technology and technological progress. They tend to mix, to various proportions, naturalism and abstraction, for example here. It is obviously a steel plant, even if the title didn't say so, but he reduces the scene to geometric shapes, flat forms, and solid blocks of basic color. The palette is predominately blacks and browns which, to me, emphasizes the realism of a manufacturing landscape with brownfields and grime-encrusted surfaces. But the bright blue sky with white puffy clouds make me feel more of a positive mood, than negative.

Finally, I like how he contrasts nature with the manufactured elements. The clouds are very realistic, with shading, texture and mass, but the factory and fencing are very flat and geometric, very artificial like steel itself.

99 Going back to Biden's rant about guns..

The odd part where he talks about leaving a gun on a kitchen table is out of place.

Even here in Baltimore, I can not leave a LOADED firearm where someone can get it, if someone age 16 or younger is in the home.

But specifically, the wording protects me from the exposure of someone being in our home without permission, and grabbing the firearm.

So, kids in house, not out loaded.

No kids in house, leave it on the kitchen table loaded.

Kid breaks into house, and grabs gun.

On the kid....not me.

That is Andrew Wyeth's Black Velvet. No it's not painted on black velvet, you morons, the girl is posed on black velvet.

The black choker collar is a nod to Manet's Olympia Reclining. I think the Wyeth is a far superior painting, and I love Manet.

There are some closeups at this link:

Pretty sure he hasn't gone yet because the Cops are going to ask him how they got the gun and if any windows were broken. I suspect he does not lock his truck up as much as he claims he does and that is a no-no with a loaded gun in your vehicle.

Precisionism isn't Commie art. Some of them might have been small-S socialist, but Precisionism is about American technological superiority. In the inter-War period, we were the only major country left standing with an intact infrastructure. While everyone else was rebuilding, we filled the gap Britain, Germany and others left open.

Oh. I was working on internal evidence alone. Knowing things is cheating. It still doesn't redeem the flatness for me. The well rendered clouds just prove that he could paint but chooses not to.

With that I want to thank the Dildo and all of the art threadists and especially Kris for all the wonderful art threads. This week is my art thread swan song, I won't be able to be a regular after this.

237 this info seems relevant/useful in regards to Trump being called crude. George Lakoff is a Berkeley linguist that gets some credit for that "you didn't build that" meme that got picked up by Warren and others. He basically says Trump is a very stable genius.


"Some commentators have even attributed his language use to early Alzheimer's, citing erratic behavior and little regards for social conventions. I don't believe it.

I have been repeatedly asked in media interviews about such use of language by Trump. So far as I can tell, he is simply using effective discourse mechanisms to communicate what he wants to communicate to his audience. I have found that he is very careful and very strategic in his use of language. The only way I know to show this is to function as a linguist and cognitive scientist and go through details. (and he does)


.... Trump's use of language is anything but word salad. His words and his use of grammar are carefully chosen, and put together artfully, automatically, and quickly."

glad you noted that, I thought it was a bit misleading of the article to try and hide the date that it happened on. I used to wonder if Mifsud was involved, because of his Maltese connections, but it looks like Malta is one of the centers of organized crime activity in the Mediterranean. Which makes it hard to figure out which crime lord got pissed off enough at what this woman was reporting on to kill her.

I remember looking up some info on this about a year ago, looks like she had no Protector. If you're going to get into exposing this kind of shit, you need a Protector, or you're gone fast.

In a maybe related note, it's amazing how much stuff is starting to come out about Epstein now that he's safely dead. 20 years, nobody says a thing, 1 week after he's dead, everybody wants to talk.

He was excited. We got to walk him down the hallway to the classroom. As soon as he notices that none of his friends from pre-school are in the room, he seizes up and starts to quietly cry.

The worst part is that one of his best friends is in the next classroom (there are 4 kindergartens, and they're trying to get a teacher to split it across 5).

If they had just put him and the other kid in the same room, there would have been no tears and they would have just gone to making those weird little screams they do.

Le sigh...I know he'll get over it. Pre-school was just like this for a while, but first impressions, you know?

The "Raimondo" that Manco is referring to was this guy, who did actually have some interesting points to make. RIP:

Trump, in one way, came out of no where to dominate the field, but he was a media personality with a large megaphone who had been making half-hearted signs that he would run for president for years.

If we're waiting for someone like Trump for the Democrats, who could it be? The only person I could imagine would be George Clooney. I think Tom Steyer thought he was the new Trump, but he's such a complete joke that he's never given traction.

I know exactly what Jinx means, and don't worry, he's not buying into the Left's anything. He's a very long-time resident of that county, and he has watched it grow from a lovely rural place to an increasingly crowded, McMansiony type of place in many parts of it. And the McMansion newcomers have turned a once reliably red county into bright blue.

I totally get what he means.

435 It brings up the uncomfortable truth about the so-called "porn industry" - the only women who would go into that are deeply damaged women without an ounce of self respect or self regard, and they are so starved for attention that they will willingly submit to any level of abuse to get it.

437 Proof his brain is functioning:

BIDEN: "A lot of you know the Delmarva Peninsula, it's all three feet above water, a lot of great fishing and hunting, duck hunting. And I walked through the estuaries, and a hunter guy said 'Damn, Joe, what did you take my gun for?' I said, let me ask you, those cop-killer bullets, I said, how many deer you know wearing Kevlar vests? Raise your hand. You really need one? And hell, if you need 100 clips or 30 clips in a weapons, then you shouldn't be hunting, man! You're dangerous! You're dangerous. (applause) I'm not joking. You know, he'd say to me, take my shotgun. I said, I have three - now I have five, because my son died and I have three of his. That's five shotguns, but they're under lock and key. You leave your key in your car out here and a 14-year-old comes along, picks it up and takes it off and gets in a crash, you're liable. Well, if you leave a weapon sitting on the table with no trigger lock on - "
Posted by: Anonosaurus Wrecks, Tyrannosaur Wrangler at August 21, 2019 10:16 AM (+y/Ru)


Umm, let's see.

Joe, in the same vein as Hillary under fire in a helicopter, wants us to believe he is walking around an estuary with a "hunter guy". And then he proceeded to take "hunter guy's" gun. That was loaded with cop killer bullets for deer hunting . In an estuary.

And ol Joe proceeds to tell him that he doesn't need 100 clips or 30 clips for hunting. It would be really hard to carry 100 clips when your hunting, so Joe's probably right. However, all the states have regulations as to how many and what type of ammo is to be used for gun hunting deer. Even one "clip" would be more ammo than permitted in virtually all states, plus it's hard to fit deer slugs into "clips".
And let's not get into Federal regulations for duck hunting.

The shotgun on the table thing is so unintelligible I'm not even going to try. It' makes as much sense as senile Joe's recommendation to blast an over/under shotgun out a door if you hear a noise.

Even non hunters and anti gunners aren't this stupid.
