Aside from making stuff, I play video games or guitar occasionally. I spend a lot of time just doing nothing or thinking about stuff.
I'm a pretty strange individual; I don't do and never have done most things that most people do, like drinking, going to clubs or parties, having sex, etc.
I am generally very antisocial, and I usually won't speak unless someone speaks to me. Meaningful words are usually wasted on humans, and meaningless words need not be spoken.
I am very pessimistic, which I find generally leads to me being right about everything.
I'm an arrogant genius.
Is it egotistic or only rational to say myself?
Favorite Writers, Poets, etc
The Dark Knight, The Avengers, the Matrix Trilogy, the Star Wars movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Cowboy Bebop The Movie, Men in Black...those are the ones coming to mind right now I guess.

I checked out your web site, and read your philosophy section. I agree with half of the things you said, and I want to argue with you (it's fun to argue, it's a great way to learn, and you probably like to argue too). I am not posting this to piss you off, just to start a conversation. I agree that total abstraction is the wrong direction, but for another reason. I think that today, artists are trying too hard to be "new" or "unique", so they do some stupid thing to a canvas and people go nuts over it. However, some art in this genre is not like that, and would fall under the category of "process based" artwork. For me, personally, the process is just as important as the result. If someone painted white on a white canvas, but included EVERY DETAIL of something from real life (and you can hardly see it) it is still an artwork of skill. I also agree that skill is the most important part of art, and that people like Andy Warhol (who during the second half of his career stopped making art and told other artists what to make for him) are not artists. I have always felt that drawing from your imagination is a form of total abstraction, because it has no base in reality. You mentioned that artwork that is thrown together quickly shouldn't be seen as more valuable as artwork that requires many hours, however I strongly disagree with that particular point. If you gave some shuck a paint brush and a canvas, and made him paint for 15 hours, and then a master at gestural drawing makes a drawing in 2 minutes, the master will make better art. That's because of ALL the time that he out into his ability to make artwork. What I am saying, is that artwork that is done quickly, is not less skillful than long labored art. It is hard to be good at simple forms of art. Also, some of the most influential artists ever actually produced artwork INCREDIBLY rapidly: Van Gogh (he made something like 10,000 paintings in 10 years!!!), Egon Schiele (my favorite artist and he used every brush stroke to his advantage), and Monett (all his paintings look the same to me though). Please disagree with something I have said. XD
