I recommend you turn your eyes to the 24 Most Pretentious Things Ever.

As you can see, not all chairs are simply for sitting on:

It reminds me of the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art – one of the only such museums I’ve ever visited. After an hour of sauntering through rooms of dark glass tapestry yodel footage for the disabled poor in Calcutta, you are left bewildered by your own bewilderment. Is it because I lack the mental capacity to understand these exhibitions?

Or should we be culling young artists?

  1. Hilarious! Have you ever seen the Artyb*****ks Generator? It’s funny for much the same reason.

  2. I don’t want to feel empathy for a chair… I want my rear-end to feel supported.

  4. This is a very Buddhist idea. That all things are connected, like you said, without a person sitting, the chair is obsolete (though in Buddhist terms the chair would not “be”.)

    I find any modern art questionable. I saw a Dale Chihuly exhibit some years ago. His glass art was amazing, but his paintings left me saying, “huh”? A huge blank canvas with a blue dot in the middle, and another one was just black and white stripes. I could do that! Hell, my 10yo grandson could do that. Why is that “art”?
