Went to the Getty museum FOR THE FIRST TIME (isn't that some bullshit-the first time?) AND I TOTALLY LOVED IT!
Lots of people, nay, most people I talk to about the place have always told me 'oh...well, I mean, the gardens nice...they have good food...but it's kinda boring.' Morons. That shit's fucking increadible.
Let me get one thing straight here, in case ANYONE ever wants to take me on a date to a museum (!) I'm probably the worst person to choose. I stand in front of almost everything for minutes and minutes. I'm not one of those people who look at something for 10 seconds (or less) and keep moving. I stand and suck psychic vibes off of art like it was nitrous balloon.
Art takes me away. My thinking becomes clear and rational, but on a distant plane seperate from typical frontal-lobe meanderings. I think of time, technique, style/genre-titles, relevance, aesthetics, impact, culture, TRANSMISSIONS OF TRANSLATION. Everything comes together in such a wonderful, cohesive manner.
So yeah, I had a wonderful time and I will be back A S A fucking P.
