Art people are pompous snobs.

Perhaps I should clarify a few things for my readers who do not know me personally. I am an art person. I am extremely interested in the impact of society and economics on art. That is why I do Art History. It expands my mind, it makes me wrestle with various thoughts and ideas that are explores through art. Ok. So I like art. I am an art person.

BUT! Art people really drive me crazy. Being art people, they are frequently not word people. And they try really hard to be. My lecturer is one of such people. She is really smart and she fancies herself an intellectual. This means she uses really big words which have little meaning to explain a really simple concept. UGH! This is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Why focus on the modernity of something? Instead focus on why something is progressive. Is it necessary to discuss the implications of the ramifications of the socio-economic modernity or can we just say that we need to look at the impact that society and economics play in the modern world?

Perhaps I am a pompous word person. But I just have to say it... clarity in writing is difficult enough to achieve. Don’t try and throw in big words. You sound stupid to those who understand what you write. Big words used in a row can often have undetected (by the writer) redundancy errors. HUGE pet peeve.

In any case, for the average sane person, the meaning gets lost and then what’s the point to writing something no-one understands/ has no significant meaning?

Exactly. There is no point.

I agree. People spend more time trying to sound smart then actually getting their points across.

I too, am a big fan of art. In fact, I'm a painter. I also am a writer. I like working with both in my head. I keep my blog writing seperate from my actual writing.

I think snobby people in general are just turn off anyway, no matter what they are saying!!

People talk themselves out of exercising so easily, and the opposite can be so easy.
The reason this is important is because you will have a stronger
knowledge base and bag of tricks to keep you going
on the rougher days. If the answer is I''''''ll do whatever takes''''''''.

Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide that Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so long and have children and there is
a lot of money involved. Also, find one that has includes videos explaining the latest news because that is sometimes the best way to see it.
However, today, the wedding photographers capture photographs of moments that are precious and
that you would cherish all your life; and, when you least expects the wedding photographer to capture you.
