My comment was meant as a joke - sorry for any offence - It's actually quite good...

Books being burnt, art being destructed. The holocaust, one of history's black pages.


I actually like the poster better then the attached 'art' works.

BTW a bit of book burning goes a long way and clearing out the dead wood and allowing for new roots to grow :cool:

But that depends just what your tastes might be and what the subject matter of what you were burning is. :P

Actually I think it could have been me that said the painting was sh1t, but I did caveat it with "i think" before. It was only meant in jest - as much of my daubings are here.

Eric I have to agree with SMS, yes art is a wonderful thing & another way that we can call ourselves 'civilised'. But we all have different tastes. arguing over what art is good or bad is as futile as arguing that blue is better than red. But so is saying all art is good regardless. Our different tastes help define who we are. There is no real discussion, but I apologise if I offended you

It has to be blue. Red is only worn by scumbag football teams.
