That's Not Art.

That's Not Art. People post ridiculous "art" to Tumblr which often consists of a photo with "meaningful" text overlaid. These pieces frequently make it into Popular. We reblog them here and call them out for being stupid.

Um, two posts? That's it? Is there something I'm missing here?

If there's only 2 bad pieces of art on Tumblr then they're doin' OK.

"I Can Haz Cheezburger" does it better.

"read the words and realize the person who made this put no subtly into it. "

Yeah.

that's not a well established content heavy blog.

Wow that's wordy compared to "that's not art".

Those are the really bad kind of precious, if only they could be as good as dogs playing poker painted on velvet.

That left me with an icky feeling. They're taking Tumblr far more seriously than the millions of angsty teenagers that whittle away their spare time there.

I mean, I wholeheartedly applaud the blog, but it would have been better to wait until there was some content there.

I prize succinct dismissals of bad anti-aliasing (but not too many of them at once), so this is perfect for me. Thanks for posting.
