What art Cookie bitching about now?
This is the post where Cookie states what he has never been on board with, but is so totally over:
Say it with a blanket
Whatever the fuck this blanket (and others just like them from many vendors featuring look a like woman, all standing on porches) is, it is poorly spelled, horribly word, and just plain ugly. The ads have been showing up all over people's Facebook feeds. The comments are a hoot - everybody ragging on the design, grammar ("Thanks you...") and the God damned fonts on these. They look like they were designed by some fool who was squiffed at an Apple using Indesign. I mean can't you hear some drunk louse caught by his wife making out in the car at the bowling alley ("...with that whore, Corliss...") saying these things to apologize?
I will encourage you to try and read this damned thing and find the errors. It's cathartic in a way that its creator never imagined.
"Live, Laugh, Love." signs
Sweet Jesus, I hate these. I understand the idea behind the sign - they are cheap to make, easy to sell to people who think they are "so cute!", but really - these need to be thrown out people. The only person who is really going to be touched by this is the person who spent their money on something like this. And make sure you buy one with the correct punctuation.
Unless you aspire to live in a recreation of an Olive Garden - and that better include the hostess podium - there is no reason to have a "MANGIA!" sign in your house. Say it, if you are serving pasta, by all means, but it's forced and it's fake.
These come in a number of styles, all cutesy. "House Rules" on the wall of your home are unnecessary unless you are running an illegal bar, gambling operation, a whore house, or all three. They are not cute, they are cliche.
If you see a trend, you are right. Why take up valuable wall space with this kind of crap when you can have beautiful works of art.
None of this stuff is creative or imaginative and NONE of this crap supports artists.
Art adds color.
Art makes you think.
But these signs are not art. You've been sold a bill of goods by HGTV that these are art and they are not. They are sold at the stores that sponsor and advertise with HGTV.
No one reads them.
No one heeds them.
And most importantly no one needs them.
INVEST IN REAL ART!
