Futurism

BabyPowdr discusses a favorite art movement.

I personally am a huge fan of art, and of history. It is only logical then that I am in love with art history. Some people find it boring, and it can be. There are a lot of dates and boring facts to memorize. But there are always the bonus fun facts and interesting things to learn too. I guess that many of you will be at some point taking Art in high school, or maybe you already have. I know for me that the hardest part was learning the Art History. It was all so new and overwhelming and I didn't really know anything at all about art back when I was in grade nine.

I know that you start with the classics, but I felt like starting here in the 20th century with one of the many short lived but influential art movements. I hope that you find it interesting, despite its length. I have included a list of my personal favorite pieces from this time at the end that you can Google or check out in a slide library. I am also willing to take into consideration what art movements you the readers, might like to read about next. Just post suggestions in the BBS.

Optimism 101

Shazaaa wants you to be positive.

op-ti-mis-tic
Pronunciation [op-tuh-mis-tik]
?adjective
1. disposed to take a favorable view of events or conditions and to expect the most favorable outcome.

I was sitting here thinking to myself wow, I really want to write an article. So I did. I spent two hours writing an article to then later find myself deleting it. I decided to write about something that interested me more, optimisim.

Imagine this, you're running late for a party, your parents are working, everyone you know is already at this big event, you have no way to get there besides foot, you are all dressed up running through the city looking like a fool then, to make things worse, you fall and it starts to rain. This is a pretty bad situation, it could hardly get much worse and instead of sitting there, crying out of frustration you sit there laughing. Like I said it can't get much worse so it has to get much better, you pick yourself up off of the ground and away you go. Sure, your outfit may be ruined but soon you'll grow out of it, sure it may be raining but after it rains it shines. So maybe you're late but showing up to a party too soon will make it seem like you kind of had nothing better to do.
