Who drinks the combination of Milk and Red Bull, what is it supposed to do for you? I was on my way walking while I see a grocery bag containing nothing but an empty small gallon of milk and empty Red Bull can, wtf?

Sounds gross. But I don't like Red Bull as it is, so...

Is white a tone? If so, does it matter whether or not it's a colour?

I drink my own concoction of cocoa, milk and icing sugar. It's pretty much the same thing right? And it tastes way better.

Quite a lot of people can one hand clap.

What is a tone?
Something which resonates. If white can affect the same way blue can, then the designation of colour is pretty meaningless. Especially given that verisimilitude in art has been rarely sought after since like the 1700's.

Have you read Nathalie Sarraute's 'Tropismes' (1939)? She uses the word tropism (originally a biological term) to describe the inner and involuntary movements of the mind as a reaction to outside stimulus. I like to think of it as quantum psychology. I don't believe she directly referenced colour, but I think the same rules apply if you spin them around a little.

Hm, interesting. Consider this. I mean non-interb?

Because the leaf of the scrotum cannot surpass the physical strength of a human male. I still honestly do no get why people still do that today anyway. We live in 2008..not 1908. The fastest way around town is NO LONGER DRIVING AROUND IN A BMW.

Your thoughts? Opinions?

I'm sorry but I can't help myself, would you awfully mind elaborating on that point? I am genuinely interested, not being a prick.
I want to read your essays and blogs of the artistic nature!

Right, right. I believe Voltaire actually mentioned this exact dichotomy both in 'Candide', and 'L'Ingénu' (Although I've only read extracts of the latter)
His discourse and satire of 18th century France was in fact influenced by his seventeen year exile to England and his observation of a functioning constitutional monarchy. In the closing chapter of 'Les grands canards', Voltaire famously delivers the ontology which is so rarely attributed to him "This for all who beget". "ceci pour tous ceux qui m'enmerde".

But I think this is slightly off topic . Do you think the human consciousness has an event horizon so to speak?

If I may interject between the two of you, I find this topic very interesting, having conducting several studies on the effects of quantum processes on the human consciousness. Particularly, I concentrated on the role of centrioles and their microtubule components. The results of the studies were astonishing, as I found that, for every centriole division, the fractal age of the Riemann cellular automation decreased according to the equation:



Which is, of course, the harmonic series!

But then again, I'm sure we've all seen The Blue Light. Nothing is really certain if we can't know the radii of the scrotum leaf, and I'm not sure the apathy of today's age lends itself well to innovation or discovery, so we may as well settle for Pythagoras.

Anyways, continue!

I was referencing the Classicism/Baroque dichotomy and the tiered and rapid propulsion that visual art underwent as a result. Of course, verisimilitude is annoyingly multi-meaninged.
If we're talking about a photographic verisimilitude, then one set of the neo-classical ideals kept that in quite primary focus. Light, perspective, form etc...

This is probably my own personal bias, but if we're talking actually likening something to the truth, then this Monet is much more a river than....

this is.


If you ask me, the classical movement was pretty misguided, especially classical theatre. I enjoyed immensely when Victor Hugo echoed my thoughts when he said in his 'préface de cromwell', that the strict rules of classical theatre were absurd in how singular they were. Not every tragedy should have the complacence to play itself out in one room, with one main action, in one day. I feel the same applies to classical art.

So, in a round about way, if we can go back to the topic of colour/tone, then I believe that over the course of the past 400 years or so, the quest for verisimilitude through colour or form or theory has had an alternative proposed through tone.

Of course there are still artists that concern themselves with true verisimilitude through hyper realism and I won't deny that there's most certainly something to it.
Close for instance. Although I would contend that the power of the image doesn't rest in the detail, but the tone the detail assumes.

edit: if any of that didn't make sense, then it's not my fault. It's like 2:40 am here.

double edit: just reread what I wrote and it's not very coherent. Please correct me if I got anything wrong. Also, since the main body was barely coherent, I might as well make another argument for tone which is the turn towards oneself and the idea 'Etats d'ames'
during the romantic period. (sorry, I learned all my art history in french and couldn't begin to guess at the correct translations)

I had a milk and coke the other day. At first I was like "I'd do this again," but that quickly devolved to "I don't feel so good."
