Re: Fast as Lightnin' - boxing / mma / martial arts stuffs

I just came *this close* to seriousposting on a YouTube video about choke escapes, because some guy goes 'oh great, another technique that looks easy when you're 6' 2" / 250 and you have a compliant partner'. OK dude, link a video with a technique that always works and anyone can use or stop complai...

Re: Orange is the new President

Romney might care about his legacy in Utah among his co-religionists. Maybe a bishopric or a replica set of golden plates that only he can look at.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I don't think he is forcing specific universal truths at all, rather, I think he is pointing out ideas that can form a fo...

This is a comment he made on reddit so nuanced and footnoted it ain't. I don't know if he took issue with the message, so much as pointed out that yes you can infer a political statement from it. And if it's explicitly political then is it compromised by insincerity in the message? Is a campaign ad ...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

My point is that if you have to salt your process with concern for ROI, corporate image, and the unwillingness to offend people who agree with you slash buy your art, you end up with something that's not quite art, but also cannot really be a true statement of any particular, sincere, political valu...

Is an issue of the NYT art? Is it political propaganda? I don't think his point is strong or relevant, but I don't know that he's flat out wrong.

If Frozen isn’t art, it’s becsuse it’s a corporate consumer product, not because it’s political propaganda.
That's my take.
I don't see how either disqualifies it from being art.

What’s a representative thing of Petersen I could read to quickly get a gist of his actual perspective. I have listened to his lectures, but not read much.
