torn sky

Slashdot sucks sometimes.

Exactly. Art has a message; that is all. It does not have to be a message designed to offend. In fact, much "great art" has a message that is inoffensive, and as such is accessible to the masses.

Artists that hang on the masturbatory fantasy that a message has to be shocking to be "art" hardly deserve the credit they receive. After all, the point of communication is to get a message across. Sometimes you have to shock your audience into understanding, but that is far from being the sole path to expression.
