My new ''hero''

    I don't really do heroes but I couldn't think of another word.

    Summing up my feelings in some moderately barky videos [language warning]

    Course I've only watched these two... bet it turns out he's really a Nazi or something.

    Nah... don't like my use of the word hero.

    Just agreed with his views in these two videos.

    Basically he's arguing that modern art is not art... at least not the stuff that the media cover as modern art...

    And that modern popular music is immature and banal... lacking the depth of previous generations of music, churned out from a factory production system hidden behind an ongoing rota of 'artists' that are interchangeable and replaceable.

    Two minutes into the Modern Art one I had to give up listening. Agree with everything he said, but his voice was grating.

    It is a bit barky... I had to turn the sound down. Which is a shame.

    His diction is excellent though, no mumbling from him.

    Or worse, runs a stable of vacuous modern artists and a pop music record label.

    I've watched the first one in full and my only disagreement would be his thoughts on Matisse, but apart from that......I particularly agreed with him about much conceptual art being lame in, well, concept.

    I will watch the second one later.

    I loved it. I'm very tempted to show it at my weekly Art society session but most of the members are elderly females and though they'd agree with the rant, I think that the language would give them palpitations!

    Any piece of conceptual, modern art that requires the addition of a thesis-like tomb to explain its meaning, has failed in its primary purpose.

    Sounds like an item of conceptual modern art itself ...

    No, but I've just read the article and it's very interesting.

    I don't agree with him on either

    And find him annoyingly superficial

    He sounds like someone who can't make decent art, and can't write a decent song and has been told it.

    And yes, he's a bit of a wrong un... as a search of his youtube videos shows (muslims. immigrants etc)

    Having had a good look, he's mental. Deeply unpleasant

    Yeah looking at his other stuff he does seem to be ... out there.

    But on the two videos I posted I can't really find stuff to disagree with. Except as cissy3 says Matisse.

    Knew he'd turn out to be a wrong'un... shame.

    Looking at more of his material, I think he's a tawt and ten-a-penny on YouTube.

    That's called shouting.

    I used the wrong word. I meant enunciation.

    Oh dear he uses the phrases 'libtard'...

    Just because some person on the internet turns out to be YUCK . . .surely doesn't mean that every single thing they have said is to be disagreed with?
