Worshipping at the wrong altar, Part 2

Is this art?

Team Duff 'gets' Lou Reed, and hence, this song in a way few mortals do, or would care to ...melancholy Dane: to be and not to be, isn't that the question?

Is this art?

Not cutting edge or current, but it's got a vibe. Thanks for inviting us to live our daily grind life as art. How do we make a living there, a full-time job, our "real" job?

Curious that these two videos' strategies for dealing with identity seem polar opposites, yet equally disaffected; I think Lou Reed wins in the end...wins what?

Is this art?

Yet another way to deal with identity; denigrate of someone else's. This be Hafez Al-Assad's, Bashar's father and the former despot of Syria.This would go over just fine in a Chelsea gallery, context optional.

A learned artist friend once told me that a great artist said, 'If you want to learn art, don't go to the museums or the galleries: go to the street'.
