Here's a blog because NOBODY else has one!

YES, BUT IS IT ART?

There are a lot of things that have been labelled “art”. It’s a wildly subjective term, yet there is a whole host of things we as a collective agree is “art”. There is a lot of other stuff that many would call art, to which others would say, “No friggin’ way that’s art.” Or at best’ they’d say, “Man, I just don’t see it. Pass the drugs.

So! Here’s a list of thing. Some have been deemed to art by the masses. Others are  debated, but often called art. And still others are things that no one normally would call art. But art is subjective. The eye of the beholder is an unpredictable bastard.And the funny thing is, with some things, once you put them next to “art”, you start to think, “Well, maybe…”

So here’s the list, in no particular order. You and your friends can debate what is really “art” and what isn’t. Check your guns at the door.
