    We'd have to ask Tim for clarification, but I feel pretty safe in saying his comment was directed at the ideas expressed in the art by the author.

    That changes nothing. One can hate a piece of art and the ideas expressed within it without actively hating the artist.

    You can hate the majority of ideas and values someone has and not hate the person.

    But it's pretty difficult.

    I'm sorry, but what kind of an asshole would hang a piece of art in his home that demonizes people like this?

    This is an example of religious art that I like.

    I like that too. I think He looks a bit forlorn and it brings to mind Matthew 23:37:

    O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

    J-Dub art is scary. Everyone is angry and all the men have facial hair.

    btw, here is a recent example of the J-Dubs co-opting our phraseology in an effort to be cooler. They never used to say "Heavenly Father." They always say, "Jehovah God."

    Lol. You know, as I was typing that post out I thought: "Just watch that be the title, you probably should check. Nah, it probably isn't."

    I was trying to find this painting somewhere because the artist's site seems to be down (obviously some evildoing going on there!) and I came across this masterpiece. Enjoy!

    What does this mean? That's the UN building, right? Jesus is knocking it down? Jesus is asking for cultural attaches? Jesus is speaking to all the nations?

    He's knocking on the door of the UN....but since there are no doorknobs, ultimately, the UN has to choose to let Him inside.

    This was likely done during the Bhoutros Bhoutros-Ghali era, shortly after his infamous interview with Ali G.

    It looks like a 1963 or 1964 ford station wagon in the foreground, so my guess is this was menat to realte to the need for UN intervention in various disasters or conflcits, Cypress, Africa, etc. The UN was even more ineffecitve then in the midst of the cold war. Just a guess.

    Or maybe he was trying to say that Jesus wanted to give them a clue. Who knows.

    I think Adam came up with the best term to describe this stuff: shart.

    Is anyone else here a fan of Minerva Teichert? I am. One of my neighbors was the model for her Queen Ester painting and has stories. Sounds like Minerva was great lady.

    I like her. They had a nice exhibit on her work last year in the BYU MOA. I was impressed with her bio.

    The cornball portion of my heart (and that part is large) notes happily that in this one, the lamb Jesus is holding is black.

    I can't stand Kinkaide. (sp?)

    I think she painted it post-1978.

    Why are you still at work? Get out of there and go to the stadium. The traffic is going to be killer. I use a secret way right by Philippe's. I never even get on the freeway.

    I will cop to having a Greg Olsen in my home. It was actually expensive (compared to an 8 1/2" x 11" print that I've framed by myself) but I quite like it - there was a reason behind the choice.



    Other than that one thing, I'm not much for the Church art stuff. I don't mind some of Liz Lemon Swindle's stuff and I would like Greg Olsen more if he didn't use the same palette for everything. But for the most part the art in my home is not church related.

    My wife is coming to pick me up. Any minute now. The Goodyear blimp is circling the stadium, which I can see from my office. Good times.

    I need to learn your secret way. I go through Chinatown.

    very similar. I go up Ord to Yale, turn right to Alpine. turn left on Alpine, go over the 110 overpass, make a right onto Fig Terrace. Go one block to College and make a right. Make your first left and take that to stadium way. Presto! sounds confusing but it is actually pretty easy.

    I get quite sick of the JWs

    On my mission in Spain, we saw quite a change in the way the JW men in Spain dressed when they went out to do their missionary work.

    When I first arrived, they wore colored shirts, mostly pastels. Which were in vogue at the time in Spain. Generally, the men did not wear ties. A few months into my mission, they were all wearing ties.

    By about a year into my mission, they started wearing only white shirts with ties. Sound familiar.

    By the time I left, they were wearing white shirts, ties...and guess what? They were wearing name tags. Black ones. Lovely.

    They used to intentionally tract out the missionaries in Japan to break in the newbies. But they were lightweights in a debate.

    There is a large Minerva Teichert painting of Christ on a boat hanging above the fireplace in the foyer of my childhood ward. It's a beautiful painting, I need to try and get a print of it for my home someday.
