A Minute to Learn, a Lifetime to Master

I can’t tell if this is terrifically funny, horrifically racist or just some art student’s Ph.D project:

I’m genuinely really intrigued by this. Some of the posts are straight-up hilarious. Others seem to be cruelly mocking the guests and audience members. Others just seem avant-garde, like they’re begging you to figure them out.

I hope that, as the medium of blogging deepens, the rule that everything online has to have an infant-level simplicity relaxes a bit. Roger Ebert  says great movies are the ones that pull you in rather than push you back (think ‘Inception’ vs. ‘Transformers’), and I’m starting to think the great blogs are the ones that, similarly, reward you for figuring them out.
