Look, a quote I stole!
In black and white type!
This took my heart and soul,
It deserves the hype!

A Real Masterpiece

This is a parody of some of the pieces that have often made it to the front page. (Several examples can be seen in the all time most popular text based imagery.) Fortunately, although they haven't confirmed this, I think the $taff has started policing the front page for TOS violations, so more deserving works can be featured instead. :iconfeatureplz:

Funny thing: this poem is only true if someone else reposts it. But please don't, since it was harder than one might imagine to get the ABAB rhyme scheme and still have the lines sound natural. :iconxd--plz:

P.S.

Due to some recent feedback I've received, I'll clarify; I'm not sure if the rhyme scheme counts as a traditional fixed form so I submitted to free verse. I hope that's okay.

Oh My God, that's about exactly what I have thought. It seems much like whoring a cool quote around only to get the 'likes' or favs in that case. Some would probably accuse me of jealousy, but honestly - for any fav I could possibly get, I don't want it to be from 'a stolen goddamn quote'! But hey, some people really like that. At least he got a great excuse - "I made those stickers for friends and they said I should post it on some website and since many people liked the original few I decided to post some more of these".
But why I'm really sad about it? This guy is from the same country as me -.-... It's really really really small country, counting only about 2mils of people. Some very good artists are from here, and also on dA; and then that happens. A god damn text gets shitload of favs, whereas all the masterpieces are hidden deep beneath... somewhere? Every now and then a piece from :icontincek-marincek: <- they are really good - surfaces on the top page, that keeps me believing. And yes - I was quite disappointed, when I saw these stolen text on the frontpage. But I can't describe in words how I felt, when I saw it's my fellow citizen. Maybe sorrow with astonishment, bordering to despair...

Actually I see a lot of things on that page that took a hell of a lot of effort. Sure, there are some poking out here and there that are the black and white which obviously didn't take as much effort, but hell looking at this one in particular....[link] or [link]

Of course, I'm not discrediting all typography. I'm just referring to some of the typo pieces that have gotten undeserved popularity lately.

It would be so ironic if this was stolen.

I mean I'm sure it's not, but, man, could anyone imagine...okay I guess it wouldn't be that amazing. Great work here. :P

You forgot to write in on an index card and take a picture. It's not art until then, duhhh.

Can quotes be copyrighted? That seems stupid to me, might as well just claim the whole language then if they don't want people useing certain phrases.

Regardless of the legal technicalities, it's a shame to see somebody retype an idea they ripped off of somebody else in MS Paint and take front page exposure away from artists who come up with their own material. :no:

Art is more then just pretty pictures.

Irony would only be if it was stolen, and that got on the front page.

People work just as hard to make poems as they do to make art. As long as it isn't a stolen poem, that is.
Well, technically, poems ARE art.
Poems have just as much, if not more, meaning than paintings, and they deserve just as well to be on the front page, as long as they aren't poems found somewhere on the internet.

THANK. YOU.
I didn't want to comment on any of those pieces out of fear that I would get cussed out for pondering whether or not something counts as art. I was just waiting for someone righteous to make something like this. You, my friend, deserve a reward. I mean, if you want to share cool quote, then go to tumblr or facebook. Share some art that's original and took some work to do.

What would of made this 100x better is that you wrote it on paper, took a picture with it in your hands and with with your clothing off.
