Capsule Replies

Thinking of starting up a file of capsule replies to comments that annoy me just a little, so I don't have to waste time typing them up every time. Like this example, a reply to a comment that a particular artist must've been on drugs:

"It takes less drugs to come up with stuff like this than most people think. You just need a really, really weird mind. I'm saying this as someone who's been accused of being on drugs when I was just saying what was normal for my mind.

Not to say that they aren't on drugs. Sometimes they are (not that I find anything wrong with that). It's just not the case for every single work you happen to find really bizarre."

I'm fairly sure it was Dali that said this... Hold on, let me check.

Yeah, it was Salvador Dali.

"I don't do drugs, I am drugs."

Precisely! Might have to steal that (with attribution to Dali, of course). Thanks for the awesome quote. :)

I've never drawn anything good while on drugs. They're too distracting.

I've drawn some interesting stuff while in chemically-induced states. Mostly just piles of crazy stuff in the sketchbook that I finish up sober.

Yes. I am perpetually indignant on behalf of Lewis Carroll especially.

Nothing like shortchanging creators' fevered imaginations, huh?

'zactly. Discounts the inherent weirdness of human brains.

*points, palm open* See?! I'm not the only person who gets annoyed by that!

I like everybody here. You all have rocked my world.

In that context, I generally think that "You're on drugs" is meant in a humorous manner. Not to imply that the artist really is on drugs, but to comment on how off the wall the art seems.

Regardless, good thoughts!
