fArt

went to the Art Museum a little bit ago for the first time ever. i went into it not really knowing what to think because i don't know shit about art, but when i got there and saw a painting called "The Massacre of the Innocents", it changed my outlook for the rest of the day. i think it was an exhibit of old paintings from Spain and a lot of them were about death and stuff i didn't expect to see... so it was pretty rad. stuff like "abstract" and "manneristic" i don't understand, just show me the death. the other exhibits that were cool, were the old guns/hand cannons swords one and medieval times exhibit. i now want a suit of armor, a sword and a bunch of hand cannons.

this isn't the "Massacre of the Innocents" i saw but it was pretty much the same thing. the one i saw was actually more graphic, but you get the idea.
