Dead Cat Art

Some years ago a Berkley professor was asked about a particularly vile performance art display one of his students arranged "but professor, is this art?"

He thought about it for a moment and replied: "yes, it is art. it's just really bad art"

I don't know if it is art or not but I know what my dog is getting for Christmas.

On many occasions I threatened my father that after he died I was going to have him stuffed and put on castors so we could all those father/son outings he considered uncivilized during life, monster truck rallies, Seahawk games, that sort of thing. The other siblings put their feet down though and we had him cremated. He might have just been ok with a flying Chuck Evans, especially if I gave him friggin' lasers.

It really needs light up eyes and (possibly) a web cam.

I don't know about art, but I know what I like.

Also the sound from the rotors reminds me of the annoying mewl of certain cats.

So, bravo.

Still, if I do a similar number on a rabbit, dress it up in a clown suit, and fly it around the local parks on Easter that make my art kind of derivative, huh?

I'm disappointed to read that the guy is an artist. For whatever reason, I would prefer to believe that some dude turned his dead cat into a helicopter without any artistic pretensions.
