Julian Beever makes an interesting comment on Art being a valuable, collectible, object for investment and museums.

Clearly the start of the video shows evidence of sponsorship and funding. But by taking the art out of the galleries and putting it literally back onto the street and at the feet of the public, some interesting things occur.

And only one of which is to marvel at the sheer complexity of the work, the time it took to complete, and is then presumably erased (and as an object d'art is symbolically devalued). Thereby mocking the lasting value and permanence of objects, and by implication everything else, including our very lives.
We are simultaneously facinated as much by the impermanence of his artwork (subconsciously reminiscent of our own mortality) as by the skill of the artist himself.

In one word, facetious

Otherwise, its uplifting because I am not him. Or perhaps because it makes you want to uplift a razor blade to your wrist.

Ask Sorceress, the Brits claim Americans don't understand sarcasm, I'm wondering if they meant South Africans.

When you tell us you are being sarcastic we can understand what you're on about, just the problem that everyone comes across it that there is no way of telling when looking at what is written whether or not it's supposed to be sarcastic.

I jut couldn't watch that clip, you knew from the moment that he said how much he'd put into it that it was going to be just too cringeworthy.

If we can't laugh about life, then pass me the razor blades.

You're not supposed to tell people you are being sarcastic, maybe that's what you brits have got backwards. You find out when you watch.

Cringeworthy indeed, and ewww-riffic. I feel bad for him but, hell, he taught me what not to do, but then again, he may become a zillionaire. Maybe just because people feel sorry for him.

But if a man can twist a peice of wire and make a paper-clip... have the idea stolen, and then that person become one of the richest people to date, then anything is possible.

Idon't think I said that Brits don't understand sarcasm,, I said I generally don't, regardless of whether it's Americans or not. Anyway, I couldn't watch it either, I got as far as him saying it was his point the third time and I just new he was for it, apart from anything else I thought what a God awful boring game!!

I actually cannot watch that program or any of those types of programs, including Pop Idol, Apprentice, and that Super Model one, I just cannot watch them I get too embaraced and emotional for the people involved.

@ Ironwood: I suppose the sarcasm should be obvious when you watch it, but like sorceress I found it just to embarrassing, especially when the guy being focused on is one of those particular breed of Americans whose over excitement is so irritating to someone like me who exhibits the "typically British" emotional reserve.

And sorceress, Ironwood said that you had said that the Americans don't understand sarcasm not that the British don't.

And here is another cringe-worthy video. But sans sarcasm, this one is really pitiful! (razorblades to be handed out at the end of the ride) ...Enjoy.

I did say brits, because I've heard many british people say this about americans as of late.

I don't mind honest passion, but America has turned into a sales culture, its digusting, my current job is dependant upon me having to try to act like that, I despise it, well, that aspect of it, but it has helped me be happier trying to be happier and more energetic. It just feels so forced sometimes. I feel dirty.

Those shows are so awkward and hard to watch that I don't either, but this was so rough, I had to put it on display. It's pretty bad when you could say you would have rather been kicked in the balls then recieve this rejection.

Oh, and for those who couldn't watch it, pussies.

Chiron, thats good shit.

And now ladies and gentlemen, after watching the previous cringe-worthy's
(featuring some big-time male cock-up's) …
..I bring you girl power, hehehe.
This one is truly uplifting! She is a real beauty and her winning is all about heart. Just watch her sock it to'em all (shes the one with the pretty white blaze). See how she holds her own against all odds.
