"Padatyu gibisïn ego."Here's the short version. Plagiarism. Present Day. Present Time. '''aHa'''Ha'''Ha'''Ha'''Ha''' True Art is not this. This is not art. This m̶i̶n̶o̶t̶a̶u̶r̶ trope is not for you. Today Is A Good Day To Die True aŗт ιş ɐ τύпά. Ťɹυε ąŗŧ ǐs a tuba. True art slept with your sister and is having her babies.
...yeah. Just in case you hadn't figured it out, True Art doesn't make a lot of sense. Strictly speaking, it's a quality of fiction which, in the minds of critics and artists, allows an otherwise normal work to transcend itself and become a statement on the human condition. This nebulous quality has never been hammered down by anyone, except perhaps to sneeringly look down on popular works they don't like as not being "true art." The quest to attain this status, however, has produced some distinctive tropes of its own. True Art can be any of these things: It's Popular, Now It Sucks (aka. True Art Is Not Popular), Public Medium Ignorance, No True Scotsman, and Unacceptable Targets.
True Art can't be not possibly different from anything that is not the opposite of any of these things:
- True Art Is Ancient
- One Potato
- True Art Is Angsty
- Two Potato
- True Art Is Incomprehensible
- Three Potato
