"If you don't fuck too hard, your painting will be all the spunkier for it."

Advice from Vincent Van Gogh:
"I already told you last spring. Eat well, do your military drill well, don't fuck too hard; if you don't fuck too hard, your painting will be all the spunkier for it."
It's your choice. Do you want spunky paintings or not?

I knew there was a good reason why this guy went nuts.

Not enough pussy.

EDH said...

I suppose a lot depends on which definition of "spunk" he's using.

Is he alluding to saving it up to be used later as a medium, like oil or water color?

Or, as Althouse might say, "spoogier."

This advice was given to Emile Bernard, a sickly guy who made sickly paintings. In other words it was wasted advice.

Van Gogh wasn't nuts. He was in despair. He killed himself in a state of despair. The year was 1890. Within 5 years, less than that in some cases, the so called Neo-Impressionists, his cohort, Bernard among them, were beginning to find recognition.

The poor bastard had bad timing.

That explains why I'm a lousy painter.

He doesn't go as far as some artists, who say that being celibate has helped their art. Under Van Gogh's advice you can still enjoy a slow and comfortable screw.

Does this principle of male performance also apply to Golf Pros? Golf scoring seems to reward the less strokes the better method to achieve the climax of getting the ball into every hole. But playing on a strange course may lead to an over-excited Pro with a premature style of playing his balls out of bounds. This can lead to great difficulties in getting sympathy at the family homestead, unless a pro uses the harmless SUV collision technique to reawaken that sympathy. In any event, You have to play them where they lie at the news conferences.

"Van Gogh wasn't nuts. He was in despair."

I'm sorry, but anybody who cuts off his ear and gives it to a hooker is clearly nuts.

Everybody knows hookers only accept cash.

XWL said...

He could have used his "spunk" in his art, as Andres Serrano did.

There seems to be some dispute as to whether or not Andy Warhol ever had used semen in his paintings.

He definitely used his urine for his Oxidation Paintings, though, so there is that, I guess.

I'm wondering if the opposite of "fuck too hard" is "fuck too soft," in which case the meaning changes dramatically. F

Althouse, I think the quality of your photography has declined of late.

Have fun dearie.

This reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon, "If they had had Prozac."
Edgar Allan Poe addresses the Raven: "Hello, Birdie!"

Ed Asner hates spunk. Raymond Burr loved it, so they say.

Yes, indeed, Andres Serrano did use his "spunk" in some of his "art". The "creations" adorn the covers of the Metallica albums "Load" and "ReLoad".
