Sayings of Editor Art – a dozen more

August 14, 2018

Numbers count!

Everybody’s got a book but nobody’s got a reader!

You are arguing with the tires, not the driver.

The camera adds 10 pounds? What did you use 4 cameras?

When the bottom bricks crumble the top falls too.

When you get to meaningless, you get to the point.

Journalism has now shifted from research, writing, editing, to an anchor asking, “What do you think?” or even worse, “What do you feel?”

When armed and trained police and security are being shot, there are too many guns in the wrong hands.

The choice, an armed state starting with airports, schools, and government buildings, or reasonable gun laws that keep guns out of the wrong hands.

With gerrymandering and other voting poll tricks, voting is more a rubber stamp then a consensus.

Those two women are beautiful in any language!

Q. Where did my glass go?
A. Scotland!

Barreling forward like a bull driving a locomotive.

Sometimes mysticism is very down to Earth.

Don’t you recognize a smoke screen when you see one.

The blossoming tree draws all the birds.

Even when you’re great, you’re often not very good.

He was a black belt in slapstick!

We are string in a society of knots

When your parents disparage you, get a 2nd opinion.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth? Better name is last century recycling museum.

Writers live off comments? We can tell ourselves how good it is, but that’s a limiting conversation.

When the very rich donate, they are just giving numbers.

Everybody’s got claws.

Two problems with most origin of life scenarios:
1. Life magically pops up completely formed.
2. Life magically survives a hostile environment without any evolved protection.

Part of the exhilaration and excitement of visiting news places is the introduction of new bacteria into your gut biome.

You are a beautiful woman in any language!

When we consider new ideas we solve old problems.

For everything under our Sun – and many others – the sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science, a History of the Future.”

The music business is auto tuned!

1% of musicians make 70% of the money. That means that 1% should contribute 70% of the money given to charity by musicians.

Reason is a fog harvester.

Isle of “U”.

I’m old enough to remember when country music was country music

Dallas, the provincial capital of the US?

I’ve got to make things right, or every thing’s wrong.

His Latin name is Dali Surrealius!

In the 70s music split into either sappy or psychotic (all melody or all beat.) The best music is the combination of both.

Most think that if a painting doesn’t look like a photograph it isn’t art. We need art ed in schools desperately.

Spring, like an itch!

Sayings of Editor Art

April 19, 2017


Once you take greed out of the equation, solutions are easy.

Somebody’s got to get lit out of NYC (and save it.)

Life exists because it has fine tuned itself to fit the environment, not the other way around.

When it comes to the art media, they seem to promote weird over quality. Maybe it’s because weird is easier to understand.

Architecture: cold, harsh rigid, not comforting, not charming, not colorful, not fun, antiseptic and unfeminine. Time for female architects.

There has been no development in poetry in decades because poetry has been reduced to meaningless words, and how can that develop? Big turnover of workers means there is something wrong with the job.

Remember you can’t have a drive by knifing.

A political party can either use their majority to wisely guide the country or to divide it for their own advantage.

He was so guilty we through the entire library at him!

Some complain that if a new idea is perfect don’t try it. I say it may not be perfect , but it is better – try it.

Why do all TV dinners taste the same? They don’t on the box.

SAYINGS (recent 10/15)


I fact check with a Ouija board

Band name: Twombly and the Cursive Curls

Life is not a fluke one time assembly of chemicals that popped up out of nothing in one place. It’s a reaction to the environment over millions of years.

When films become franchises, and accountants become directors …

Even bacteria have enemies.

Both sides are making their point of view more important than a solution.

This is not a Picasso either (painting title)


Here’s some just on art and painting:


Most modern art substitutes weird for quality, narrow isms for scope and meaning, and trendy for depth.

For many decades weird has replaced creativity.

Just as the last century in art was fragmented into ‘isms, I suggest this century will do the opposite and build new art based on the synthesis of all the styles.

Saying modern art is trendy is like saying an orange is an orange.

Last century the goal was to fit the ism. This century the goal is to paint well – no ism. Fractionalized art then, synthesized art now. Even calling something modern art is a type of ism that separates that art from the art of the past.

Current isms include modern art, lowbrow art, comic book and illustrator art, digital art, western art, etc.

It seems so much more natural to take off the ism blinders and like all art instead of having a narrow field of vision where your chosen ism is the only true ism or style.

Share the art, protect the originals. (Reason for exact painting copies.)
