an artistic crit for your daughter:

hey there, it looks like you cut corners a bit in the less interesting parts of the pictures and smudged. I personally think that if you take your time on the entire picture as a whole instead of piece by piece, it'll come out much much better.

This isn't to say that doing part by partand smudging don't have their place. I just think that if you spent more time on these and varied your grey tones more, you'd have two very excellent pieces. I like the composition on the cheshire cat more than the first picture.

I recognize the walking hammers in the first picture, but I can't remember from where.

The first picture is basically a mishmash of identically copied wall images, but you need some talent to be able to draw what you see definitely.

But blending, blech.

You can go fuck yourself Rez. Gerald Scarfe's artwork in The Wall is fantastic.

Neither as a film nor as an album is The Wall deserving of a dismissive judgement of "infantile crap".

I think he meant the obsessive copying shit that hippie teenagers do when they first discover pink floyd.

I think you understand his view now.

I don't think lotida's daughter is one that really grasps the concepts behind the songs.

I don't think you know my daughter at all to make that statement. I bet you that she "grasps the concepts behind the songs" way more than most.

She loves Pink Floyd and made that one picture as part of an art project. I would hardly call that obsessive.

now stop it.


mle, as true as that is, i really did mean it in the way that ziggytrix took offense at. i think the wall, the movie moreso than the album, is a flimsily excused pile of hollow pomp with about 30 minutes of worthwhile songs and 50 minutes of waters strongarming his ridiculous puppetry through it.

and before anyone says that i just dont get it, i say the man can't be as impenetrable as you make him out to be, because whoever created something like "Radio KAOS" is obviously a tremendous jackass with occasional flashes of tolerable noise.

because in the flesh is still an amazing peice of work

mom tried to foist this self-congratulatory record on me since i was 5, i bought it for ten years until i realized that i was beginning to feel really uncomfortable because, innately, it's so ridiculously naff that i couldn't take it seriously anymore.

so what i'm saying is that her daughter's talents (because she's damn good) focusing on copying the cover to the wall and other idolized music imagery from way back when is about one or two notches up from anime.

stuff it

Impenetrable? Hardly. The deliciously ironic thing about the film is that Waters hated it beacause he "felt no sympathy at all with the lead character". He doesn't or refuses to get that the character half based on himself is a weenie and a jerk!

If you go thru life without being betrayed by someone you love, without being abused by an authority figure, or missing a proper father or mother figure, then you probably haven't really lived yet. The "poor me, my life is so bad" thing is a fairly normal and, yes, adolescent reaction, but I never said Waters was anything more than a decent musician, and that this film was something more than just "infantile crap".

If you didn't like it, that's fine. Nobody has to like anything. But you didn't say you don't like it - a statement which I would not have responded to, for whatever that's worth. You're being, in my opinion, absurdly dismissive of something you've decided you don't like.

By the way "it's so ridiculously naff that i couldn't take it seriously anymore." That's gold, right there.

I offered the most honest critique for your daughter and you didn't bat an eye, but I proposed that since you daughter was young I wasn't sure she knew the real meanings behind the song, and you lash out. I think you just made this thread mainly to get attention for yourself -not for your daughter.

How would sharing her drawings get attention for me? Like I want your attention??? Quite frankly MLE, I could care less what you think. Get over yourself.
