    awesome

    I agree in principle, but the type of thing I'm talking about here is people that are wholly and solely attempting to get shock reactions from their audiences without any clear or thought-out direction to the piece outside of, 'I'm gonna paint on this portrait with poo'
    If one paints a portrait with poo the medium used is not in fact poo, it is the reactions of the people that look upon it. The artist is not creating a picture made of faeces, they are making a picture made of raw revulsion. The art is as irrelevant to the final product as a brush is to an oil painting, simply a tool, not the art itself.

    it makes sense apart from the incorrect equivalence drawn between poo and a brush when it should be between poo and paint

    How so? Paint is the medium of the artwork. The image is rendered in paint, here the image is rendered in the viewer. The tool used to create each is the brush and the poo.

    no see he's not taking a piece of poop and dipping it in paint and then painting a portrait

    he's smearing poop across a canvass to make a portrait

    here is the short version of my theatrical experience

    did a lot of acting in high school, small parts, etc

    met a girl when I was right out of high school, fell incredibly in love with her, did a lot of amateur theatre mostly due to dating her at the time

    wrote an article on a shitty local theatre website that really pissed a lot of people off

    broke up with the girl and fucked the director of a show I was in at the time

    slowly lost interest

    ended up at a gathering of local theatre people, realized I hated everyone there, went off to make my own films and never looked back


    the end!

    Yes but the portrait painted in poo is just the tool to create the actual portrait in flesh, the portrait of the reaction of the viewer. This is how all "provocative" art works, the actual artwork itself is largely irrelevant. It's artistic trolling, the important part isn't object, duchamp's urinal wasn't the important part, it's the reaction and the controversy.

    It's not a painting in poo, it's a painting in people. The poo artwork is simply the brush used to paint their reactions.

    yeah but it's a cleaner analogy to compare the poo and the paint

    Sure, but it undermines the argument. It's too obvious, doesn't leave as much room for bullshit.

    I'm not sure if I have it lying around anymore, but basically there are two award ceremonies in what was my branch of amateur theatre, the guilds and the lyrebirds, sort of like the oscars and the golden globes respectively

    I was asked to do a report on the lyrebirds

    most of the reports from previous years were 'it was fun, people dressed up, here's everyone who won'

    my report was 'wow, everyone is really drunk and doesn't at all seem to be caring about this beyond an excuse to party, this ceremony is kind of silly and self-serious, oh hey the show directed by the president of the awards committee won all the awards, how interesting'

    I literally had legal action threatened against me

    Funny, was just talking about theater with Dave on Facebook earlier! I discovered that good performances are going to be in town shortly and I wish I had someone to see them with. I miss theatre, both performing and attending.

    I performed in high school productions of "You Can't Take It With You", "Macbeth", and some smaller shows. Was always a blast.

    I like going to the theatre!

    I have never acted but I have done some cabaret. But mostly I just like going to plays. Even weird avant-garde german plays set in new york where halfway through the cast sing a song about tofu.

    I love acting. I absolutely adore it. I wish I had better voice control so I could do consistent VA work. One of my greatest regrets is that I cannot sing.

    I'd join an improv group if there was a decent one around.

    Never acted in a proper capacity, but goddamn do I know a lot of "theatre people". They are, without exception, either interesting and downright awesome or they're so far up their own arses that they make the average writer look like a paragon of humility and grace.

    I did some plays during high school, inlcuding one mini-play I wrote. Trying to commit lines to memory was a trying (but ultimately rewarding) experience.

    Actually, a couple of months ago, a customer recognised me and complimented me on one of my performances. Which would have been 4 or 5 years ago.

    There was a dark section so it seemed like a pretty good opportunity to pick my nose.

    At that moment the lights came on real bright and one of the actors was looking right at me.
