Minute Movies


A few months ago I asked whether TV commercials can be art. This week I learned that the Museum of Modern Art thinks they can.

  1. Neil, what’s the difference between a “pay site” and a “professional pay site”?

  2. A professional pay site is paid to be a pay site.

  3. And a tautology is meant to be redundant and oxymoronic (like “Not Anonymous”)?

  4. Suhweet. I’ve always been a fan of commercials — does anyone remember adcritic.com before it turned into a professional pay site?

  5. A professionally tautological pay site that is paid to redundantly be a professional pay site is NOT art.

  6. Yup, they’ve gone berserk!

  7. Regular cannabis users are at greater risk of developing mental illness later in life. One study, which researched people in Sweden, Holland and New Zealand, found that the risk was seven times higher for heavy users.

    A number of studies have confirmed that cannabis consumption acts to increase later risk of schizophrenia. Cannabis can cause severe psychotic reactions. A recent Dutch study of more than 4,000 people showed that those taking large amounts of cannabis were almost seven times more likely to have psychotic symptoms three years later.

    Another study of 50,000 Swedish Army conscripts, found that 18-year olds who toked more than 50 times were six times more likely to develop schizophrenia in the following 15 years.

  8. What can NOT be art?

  9. I don’t know what that cannabis comment has to do with anything, but it was definitely art.
