Turning Toy Weapons Into Instruments

Artist / musician Ken Butler thinks he’s a genius:

Meh.. just because you throw some strings and noise making crap on stuff doesn’t make worthwhile.  Better off as instruments than going into the landfill though I suppose, if he’s enjoying what he’s doing.

The gun stuff starts at 3:06.

Brady-Campaign-Center-GunViolinsDoes this guy actually make a living doing this crap?  Looks like a large workshop.

Thoughts?

I’ve met with these types and they’re completely delusional on how society works. From my experience, “artists” are usually people who have never worked a day in their life.

Nothing pisses me off me off more when your artsy family member takes you to their friend’s art gallery, where a shemagh wearing hipster shows off their their collection of old (think really old level action rifles) and new guns by destroyed by cutting it in cut in two, and painted with blood.

The icing on the cake was when said shemagh wearing hipster met me for the first time, and said, “NICE TO MEET YOU MURDER!” Said hipster got their nose broken and then cried like a wimp.

You are so full of shit. You don’t know what the fuck you are talking about.

I can assure you, I know way more artists than you could ever imagine in one room together. We work our asses off to be able to do what we do. Art doesn’t always pay well and is incredibly difficult to make a living at, even if you are insanely talented.

Personally, I used to worked a manual labor job, working 50-70 hours a week in road work in the the fucking desert, temperatures at times reaching 115 degrees. I have worked various jobs in between to supplement my income.

You must be very insecure in your own life to talk shit and make a blanket statement about a group of people like that. You sound like an ignorant, entitled, self-indulgent, asshole and your “I’m better than you” attitude does nothing for your character.

Step away from the keyboard, maybe go get laid, have a drink, and shut the fuck up.

Now I’m a happy gun shooting artist and craftsman respecting sociopath – but can’t we all just agree to hate on hipsters and get along?
