@AmandaElsewhere ME TOO
On Like A Fox
the beginning of this piece gave me the serious heebie jeebies. i also appreciate the consideration of the film! definitely want to check it out now. also #notallmen
@moe-zee i think the content here is still lovely! but there are like ZERO commenters anymore?!? which is all my question was about! NEVR CHANGE, HAIRPIN.
@Jane Hu@facebook i agree with other posters who mention that the "stuff in art" series disappeared, only to reappear when a similar series became popular over at the toast. and the tone/theme of the "stuff in art" series seems to have suddenly mimicked Ortberg's. when Ortberg consistently posts about disgruntled women in art, suddenly choosing "women real tired of your shit in art" when previous themes included "floors in art" can cause us all to do a double take!
my apologies for not mentioning the dates of publication, however. just trying to hash out why it suddenly feels derivative to so many of us.
@AmandaElsewhere where did everyone go? i miss the old hairpin too :(
@Jane Hu@facebook i did check the author's previous posts before i commented, and i still feel the former entries of "stuff in art" seemed more original because they simply showed stuff in art, rather than attributing jocular emotions/narratives to art in the same way Ortberg does. which is why these past two entries have seemed a bit plagiarize-y, and i think everyone is picking up on that vibe. no hating meant.
i'd like to fourth the sentiment against plagiarizing ideas.

this reminds me of the scene in the assassination of jesse james where robert ford is reciting all the ways he and the james brothers were similar and i love it.
beautiful. thanks for sharing.
