The Jug


Big of Bulk and no undertoe,
does the hover mechanism work.
upon its face 3 eyes placed tri-angu-lar-ly.
A grim smile of death, and fire apfhorth,
the whirl and whim of certaincy,
T'fear or not?


Eh, something quick.


EDIT: Okay, I drew something quick too.

imagine yourself not looking at the juggernaut from the outside, but from the inside. how does it tick?
perhaps it is a quiet, peaceful machine that doesn't understand its tasks, and simply follows orders.
or perhaps it is more sinister, smiling to itself and waiting for its next chance to fight.

my submission is an mp3 audio file: [attachment=502:circuit_idling80.mp3]
sorry for the low bitrate, it was nescessary to fit within the upload size.
piece was performed by me on turntables, the end work is an edit of two separate takes.

Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Reading KT's post gave me an interesting idea for a short "essay/story"...since these days almost anything can be art...
The Face of a Juggernaught:
Excerpt from the recovered diaries of a once-infamous P'fhor pathology scientist.
January 21st:
Today I decided to take my team deeper into P'fhor territory to work our way deeper into the P'fhor mentality. My team was resistant at first, but I showed them the error of their ways when I made an example out of Frank. Our cloaking devices have worked fairly well, but we lost George because he was an idiot and tried to run away.
March 15th:
We finally made it into the inner area of P'fhor controlled space. I have just now had enough time to be able to write about our exploits. Our cloaking device failed us shortly after we entered their territory and we've been making "running" observations as we flee their space forces.
March 20th:
Over half my team is gone, either having fled or been killed defending our research vessel. During these past few days I've repeatedly run into what we call Juggernaughts. Or as some of our security team so crudely calls them, "Thing That Kicks Our Asses." I have decided to take the time to stay here and research these strange beings rather than return to UESC controlled space.
April 1st:
As a wonderful April Fool's joke, my team decided to desert and they left me on a P'fhor inhabited planet and tried to escape. I got the last laugh though, when I saw two Juggernaughts blow them out of the sky.
April 8th:
The Juggernaughts excite me. I have seen their destructive power, their grace, their utter lack of emotion. I saw one Juggernaught utterly destroy Mary, my secretary with a volley of missles. It was a horrible and beautiful sight to behold.
April 10th:
While running away from a group of P'fhor, I ran directly into a Juggernaught. I am probably the only human who was able to look this closely at one of these...things...and survive. All I saw was my own death. This is rather silly for a scientist to say, but this, I believe is what I saw. However, this one just looked at me for a while and then it floated away, completely ignoring me...I think they're playing with me, they could have captured or killed me quite some time ago.
April 11th:
As I think back to my experience with the Juggernaught. I begin to wonder about what it was thinking. What do they eat? Are they built? I wonder what it thought of me...Then I realized I haven't shaved in over two months, I must have looked horrible. I plan on going back out and finding this same Juggernaught again. Perhaps I can convince some of the local P'fhor to take me to it.
Diary entires end here. The "mysteries" of the Juggernaught have never been fully revealed, nor have any further explorations been attempted. Two other groups of scientists have tried disecting Juggernaughts. The first group was blow apart because they couldn't figure out the Juggernaught's self-destruction system and then other went missing after they announced that they were going to try to diplomatically talk to a Juggernaught.

Almost anything can be art these days...I've seen a large white, paint-board...painted white...with a red dot somewhere in the corner, going for thousands of dollars.

A couple of my favorite Robert Rauschenberg pieces:

There's actually a better, three panel painting in the same series as the second image at the MOMA in San Francisco. I love it a lot.

Also see John Cage's 4'33".

They are both blank canvasses, but the paintings are completely different; the first was a detailed illustration by Rauschenberg's friend William De Kooning, which he then erased in its entirety (the piece was created for this purpose). The second is from his series of "white paintings" which are generally painted with a roller, and generally come to galleries with instructions to repaint them (again with a roller) if they begin to lose their freshness.

Anyway, sorry to get us off topic... back to the jugger art!

What bothers me the most is not that it's considered art, but that people pay ungodly amounts of money for a five-minute Home Depot project. "Professional" art is a scam, and it really bothers me that nobody is actually going to come out and tell this guy that, despite all the "thought" he may have put into it, it's still a white goddamn canvas. It doesn't challenge my perception on art outside of the fact that I can't believe I'm paying $5 to enter the art gallery and look at it.

I consider that art, but i still say it's a shame how much art like that costs. Actually all art is way too expensive. My mother is an artist and she sells her pieces for a very low amount. small ones for 30-50 bucks, bigger ones for around 80-150 and the large ones for around 200 bucks, which is REALLY cheap compared to art today, and she is still one of the main artists in her art genre here in Iceland.

well, think of it in the artists point of view,
you paint because its your job... now wouldn't it be great to bump up the zeros to get more $$$?
if rich people can afford and dish out the bling, than why not make 'art work' more expensive (wink wink)

Really? I thought people painted because they enjoyed painting. Anyway, whether or not a white canvas is art is not what I'm debating -- whether or not it's worth the thousands of dollars it runs for, however, is another issue.
