The Beetles m8
In class yesterday as we were discussing art (more specifically cubist art I believe), somebody said that a horse is a horse. Whether it is represented by geometric forms, photorealistic tendencies, or an impressionist style, a horse is a horse. Cubists simply wanted to paint what they wanted sometimes, but from a new perspective. In an interview of The Beetles, they were posed a question about what the deeper meaning of their songs were. At this point they simply responded, "we wanted to write a song about drugs and prostitutes." This art style of simply seeing things from a new perspective reminded me of this quote a lot.
