Sig Fad No More!


Aanchir

555 views

Hi, everyone! Hate the "fake statistics" fad that's been spreading in people's sigs? Want to protect the good name of rap, or of factual statistics in general? Fret no more! This sig quote aims to solve all your troubles!

92% of artists have moved on to impressionism. Copy and paste this into your sig if you are part of the 8% that still creates real artwork.

 

Want to add this to your sig? Then copy and paste the following code into your sig:

[quote=Académie des Beaux-Arts, circa 1870]92% of artists have moved on to impressionism. Copy and paste this into your sig if you are part of the 8% that still creates real artwork.[/quote]

With all due respect,

Your not supposed to sya that you are starting a fad

The title is not intended to indicate that I am starting a fad, and if it was I would not see any fault in that. It is commenting on the existing sig fad. This new sig message is a historical satire on the issue.

What a relief it is to know that it was once not cool. But anyway, couldn't you just make your sig say "I hate rap" instead of lying and saying that statistics show such-and-such?

I'm assuming this is an actual survey by the "Acadamie", tand thus, isn't a lying sig, which is why your using it. Right?

No, not an actual survey, but I expect someone actually said something of the sort back then. And it's more of a joke, really. Does it not serve to put forth the message I intended? I thought it would... :unsure:

It might be a little too highbrow for most of BZ; remember, the population here is primarily comprised of children.

 

 

But if it's worth anything, I thought it was hysterical. ^_^

Art is an expression of values. [Almost] all art is equally sophisticated because of this, even though the value set is different. That said, not all art is equal in quality. Realism FTW

I completely agree. I don't see how it relates, though... this sig quote is neither meant to endorse or criticize impressionism, but rather to parody the belief that "if it's different and simpler than what came first, it's not real," and to even further parody the idea that "if I think something is bad, then my guess of how many people agree or disagree is suddenly perfectly true."

 

Realism FTW indeed, though I regret that I never have time for it and prefer to work in a simpler, more spontaneous style.
