Roger Ebert has posted a rebuttal to Clive Barker’s comments regarding him being an ignorant old man.
Barker: “We can debate what art is, we can debate it forever. If the experience moves you in some way or another … even if it moves your bowels … I think it is worthy of some serious study.”
Ebert: Perhaps if the experience moves your bowels, it is worthy of some serious medical study. Many experiences that move me in some way or another are not art. A year ago I lost the ability (temporarily, I hope) to speak. I was deeply moved by the experience. It was not art.
…I think Brodie said it best, “Here’s the pulse, alright. And here’s your finger…far from the pulse, jammed straight up your ass.”
Get some Echochrome into you, Rodge.
