Oh, and once again, I wasn't the only one who took it seriously so your joke fell totally flat. Price of being pretentious.
Frownland sonned.

It was still an awesome thread with some great discussions.

Album cover idea: photograph of several Jimmy Page clones wielding box-cutters.

It was actually really fun for long time and then we had the naysayers come in and ruin the fun. Oh well.

To argue this on a meta level:
I'd postulate two basic approaches to art, taken from the two basic approaches in linguistics, precriptive and descriptive.
If you approach art in the prescriptive way, you have a basic set of rules by which you measure and analyze art. By the adherence of the work to those rules you judge how good it is and whether it's art at all.
If you approach it in the descriptive way, you try to analyze it in itself and in accordance to why the artist made it and in what way it might resonate with the audience and with oneself especially. The question whether it is art or isn't, isn't even really posed.
In accordance with being a descriptivist I won't say that any of those two ways is right or wrong, but I think the descriptivist has the potential for having more fun with art.

When Batty makes a joke, I get it. When Ki makes one, I (usually) get it. When Plankton makes a joke I get it. When you make a joke, I have no idea whether or not you're serious. If I had never heard of 4:33 I would have been prepared to have taken that as being one of your jokes.

The fact that I would post something like that is part of the joke in itself. It's a drier form of humour.

As I've said many times before, if you have to ask yourself if I'm joking, I probably am. Taking me seriously is a rookie mistake.
