20) How do you vent your anger?

Depends. If I’m really angry I’ll play some Team Fortress… as Gunslinger Engie (。・`ω´・。). If I’m just a bit annoyed I usually just lie down for a bit and fap?

17) What is your greatest weakness; your greatest strength?

Weakness: I get emotionally attached to people I like, to a degree, I reckon, that can be a bit overwhelming for them at times. I’m one of these people that need their friends around 24/7 which is probs not the healthiest way of life so I’m working on that.

Strength: Considering the above I wanna say “I’m a very loyal friend” but that’d be lazy ;p On the other hand… I’m lazy as fuck so yeah, I’ll go with that. Heh.

29) To you, what is the meaning of life?

I’m with de Sade on this one: Get your pleasure in the here and now, don’t work your whole life in the feeble hope it will all be worth it at some point in the future. The only “meaning” nature gave our lives was to procreate. If you want to do that is up to you. Other than that just do whatever the fuck pleases you as long as you don’t hurt others in the process. And find hope in the knowledge that once your life is over there will be no regrets, there’s only nothingness; no judging, no questions, you will just cease to exist and it will be good :)

No. 30 is already answered (you couldn’t know that because I queued these posts up :)

30) Define Art.

When I was an impressionable teenager I read lots of Wilde, Poe and Huysmans so, unsurprisingly, I believe in the idea of l’art pour l’art and that art is everything that was done for it’s own sake; not to serve any purpose or be of any utility whatsoever to any other mind than the artist’s.


The temperament to which Art appeals … is the temperament of receptivity.

That is all.

If a man approaches a work of art with any desire to exercise authority over it and the artist, he approaches it in such a spirit that he cannot receive any artistic impression from it at all. The work of art is to dominate the spectator: the spectator is not to dominate the work of art. The spectator is to be receptive. He is to be the violin on which the master is to play. And the more completely he can suppress his own silly views, his own foolish prejudices, his own absurd ideas of what Art should be, or should not be, the more likely he is to understand and appreciate the work of art in question.
