    @6: But before the you’re a douche comment. ;D

    Wait, if we define a douche purely on terms of function, then I am quite an effective and enjoyable douche, I’m told. ;D

    @1 – You didn’t say the comments were unfounded…

    Is spay paint something you use on pets?

    Art? Commerce? Thrive?
    How’s about that YSL auction, eh?
    Kinda puts the Warhol auction to shame.
    300 million Euros worth of Art!
    What a collection!

    Ah, if art is to thrive, the artists must make beautiful things.
    IIRC Yoko once said that her and John’s “investment strategy” was simply to buy beautiful things: that they increased in value over time faster than other things did was a bonus.
    Again, I say this with half an eye on the YSL and Warhol auctions.
    It would seem that beautiful objects increase in value over time.
    The bonus is that, as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if you purchase based upon what you think is beautiful, that “beauty-value” will never be denied you, regardless of the realizable value of the object in monetary terms.

  10. Ugly Canuck says:

    Instead of “The bonus is”, perhaps I should have stated, “The beauty of it is”, in the above.

    In before the ‘Shepard Fairey is a ripoff artist’ comments.
