Bad Art: Some kind of creative output that gets a reaction. Hilarity or censorship ensue.
Have you ever seen something, heard something, read something, and had a reaction to it – maybe it got you thinking, or it made you feel like you’ve just gotta say something? Start an argument? State your opinion? Check it out again? You just took in some Bad Art.
Making art is great – but it’s the part where people see it and react to it that things get interesting. Books get burned, people pass out at concerts, they ooh and aah at how cute the thing is, or get in an argument in the car over whether a painting (or a movie, or a book, or an interpretive dance) is the greatest ever or a true piece of poop.
Who knows what Good or Bad means really? Forget the niceties, let’s get in there and check some stuff out.
