Why do people still consider Jackson Pollock paint splatter to be "good art" even after it was revealed that it was just CIA psy-ops?

 No.678339

Maybe because it paved the way for the abstract expressionist movement, and therefore still has value in the art world as tarnsitional paintings.

Maybe because they're ACTUALLY good art, and the government just chose to promote it because it suited their intests

How would I know. I'm not an artdude.

I will say, there is something profoundly pleasing about Pollock's paintings to me, so I sorta get it. If they cost less than 300 dollars, I would totally consider getting one.

Hey /pony/! i was watching this video on comparing Japanese food culture vs. American food culture

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr4MmmWQtZM

and it showcases how in Japan, there are a plethora of food choices that are on the whole much healthier, and very easy to access! in contrast, in America, the convenient food choices are often fatty and filled with sugar, while eating healthy is often harder to obtain, and usually not very varied in options in most places

so it got me thinking! i'm usually a prey to this convenience, as i am often not at home, and my diet is pretty bad overall. honestly, i love the tastiness of all this bad food, despite being soooo bad for you :P

but, if i could find out how to sort of structure a food culture around eating healthier, while staying varied and interesting, that would be a fantastic way to eat better, while not forcing myself to do something that my brain just isn't built to do.

So i guess the point of this thread is to maybe come up with healthy alternatives that are convenient, can be enjoyed even away from home, is varied and interesting, and maybe found in convenience stores or restauraunts!

one idea i had was just going through the organic food sections or other snack-ish isles and finding multiple things that sound tasty while being healthier! maybe find some sort of discount meat, or fish, that could be prepped easily, and instead of relying on processed stuff for flavor, maybe favor peppers, fruits, spices, and other naturally and/or healthier flavorful things!

i'd love to hear your thoughts!

So today was Saturday, which only meant one thing.

Lord of the Rings Tabletop Roleplaying Game, baybeeeee!

So we did that.

So, today we find out party, two Dwarves, an Elf, a Human, and a Hobbit, in the Blue Mountains, in the halls of... Thorin's Hall.

However, all is not well in the Dwarven homeland. Not only are the Dourhand Clan amassing power hand allying themselves with the Orcs, led by a powerful Dwarven Necromancer named affectionaly by our group, Scrotum (real name unimportant), but also, one of our party has been grievously injured! And it is no ordinary injury.

No, my friends, Len, son of Kaen, has been dealt a damaging blow by a Morgul Blade and has contracted the Black Breath! However, there is hope for his survival! The elven healer of this particular Fellowship has stopped the spread of the disease for one week! Not only this but the Rohirric Horsewoman has volunteered to take the injured dwarf by horseback to the far off Elven city of Rivendale. What would normally be a  26 day journey there has been cut down to a mere six days! Just enough time for the week to pass and the healing to wear off.

Len has been healed, a mere five days later! And then they are off again, six days back!

Meanwhile, back in Thorin's Hall, the rest of the party have 17 days to spend while their comrade is away for healing. The Hobbit chef... learns to cook the Dwarven way, and is now able to cook things faster with no penalties! The Ithilien Ranger and party Siege Weapons Enthusiast (Bowmaster 1000 we call him)... learns how to use Dwarven siege weapons! And the Elven healer... makes the days journey to the Elven settlement in the Blue Mountains and hears some shocking news!

You know what movie is pretty horrifyingly depressing in retrospect? Monster's University.

Monster's University is a prequel to Monsters, Inc., telling the story of Sully and Mike going to college and learning how to become Scarers. But, if you remember, in Monsters, Inc. the titular company is struggling in the midst of an energy crisis. Children's screams are not producing the same kind of power they used to. Scream Energy, and thus working as a Scarer is a dying industry. Not only that, we see the Scream Energy business completely die out at the end of the movie, because Sully discovers a new, more powerful energy source; Laugh Energy.

This works out for Mike and Sully, who continue to work as ...Laughers, I guess, in the new industry, but what about all the other monsters? All of Mike and Sully's classmates who went to that college. One of the themes of Monster's University is that Mike wants to be a Scarer, but is physically unsuited for that job and learns to let go of that dream. Well what about all the monsters who are only physically suited for Scaring work, who are now not just unemployed, but unemployable with college debt and useless college degrees in a dead industry?

This would be devastating to thousands of monsters and their families. For them to make a movie about a bunch of college hopefuls wasting their time only to end up unemployed with useless degrees is pretty depressing and shitty.

People should sell this series to me so that it becomes clear I should not try to go through bullet hell to get into this.

I mean there's crazy much lore on the characters, but the game footage I have seen, there's surprisingly little in the games and it's just insane amount of skill that allows you to get through it.

Hey. I’ve been feeling kind of blue lately. It’s nothing huge, just some mundane stuff that’s been bothering me. The part of my brain that remembers its cognitive resiliency training recognizes a lot of the cognitive distortions I’m feeling, but I still feel blue, so I figured I’d voice my thoughts here and see what happens.

And why is blue viewed as a sad color? Blue is awesome, and so rare! Like, it doesn’t even occur naturally anywhere. Sure there’s lots of blue stuff in nature, but they’re actually using really cool microstructures—not pigment—to create a light refraction/reflection effect that creates the color blue by only reflecting blue light. And yes, everything does this, except one. The Olive Wing Butterfly is the only species on the entire planet that has managed to create a blue pigment. Every other blue thing you’ve ever seen in nature was using intricate microstructures that reflect blue light. There’s no blue pigment on them. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

And holy cow, I just realized my favorite color is actually blue. I mean, I still think Pink and Orange look cool, but like… blue is just so awesome, and I have more blue clothing than any other color, and it has this really calming effect. So why do we view it as sad? Just some food for thought while I distract myself for a few minutes.

So, onto the stuff I actually feel like I need to talk about. I’ve been feeling kind of… distant and apathetic lately. Not really sad, just sort of unmotivated. I’ve been neglecting a lot of communities I’m apart of, such as this one, such as reviewer groups on Fimfiction, such as Fandom discussions on discord, such as IRL study groups and book clubs I’m part of. And it’s not like it’s beyond my ability to do something (I wrote this thread, didn’t I?). I just, don’t feel motivated to. And part of that is due to my odd timezone, which is really frustrating and I can’t wait to move back to the US so I can talk to all of you when you’re online, but for my IRL groups that’s not an excuse. I’m just not motivated.

Analyzing it like this, it actually starts to look like a directed attack that’s just extremely subtle. I noticed that it looked like a problem earlier when I lost so much interest in everything, that I did nothing. Literally nothing. Except breathe and pump blood, I guess. After scanning my room, glancing past my books, my games, my thinkpad, my guitar, my bike helmet, my puzzles, mPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
