Stab In The Art

{May 15, 2010}   Bayonetta

Ok, I got this game this week and have played a few hours worth. I had previously played the demo numerously, and had so much fun as I used Bayonetta’s avatar to bleed roses, and fart butterflies.

Upon playing the full version, I am yet to figure out whether this game has been designed to entertain males or females. One minute you’reĀ  running and jumping, showing your crotch to the camera, and moaning… the next you are dancing to girly music, your target is a lip mark, and you grow butterfly wings when you jump.

I thought perhaps it may have been targeted at both audiences, to widen the marketing of the game, to appeal to all. If so, then I think they touched on extremes of both ways.

If anyone has any light to shed on this for me, please let me know.


{May 7, 2010}   3-Year Old Picasso

What the hell!!?

I was watching the tv the other night, when the current affair show declares that they have found a girl that is able to make art, as good as Pablo Picasso, himself! Wow, she must be good. They told us that her parents have sold her works for up to $28,000 AUD. They then proceeded to show this 3 year old girl, pouring paint from the tubes on to canvases and sticking pom poms to it… -_-

I was Furious! In what way does that even relate to Picasso’s Life time of working, his education at the Academy of Arts in Madrid and creating a revolutionary art movement of cubism?!? Its an insult to Pablo and all artists, I think.

A lot of people think that the art of Picasso could have been done by a three year old, but, like Stienman in Bioshock, he spent many years following the crowd, learning how to draw before finding a way that projects his feelings best.
