all blogs should be friends so i can post comments and shit

i don’t understand this guy who made a comment.  first, who wants to hold artists accountable for appropriating images?  i don’t have a problem with appropriating images.  (maybe this tumiami guy and this paul guy had a conversation via another venue.)  my issue is in what academics use as resources.  you don’t work on, say, a lichtenstein piece that pulls from old disney cartoons without some knowledge of old disney cartoons so you can say “that’s saying x about y because of f.”  but lichtenstein and pop-with-a-capital-p is canon.  academics need to work these popular references into all of their work, whether it be referencing the social sciences, fine arts, whatever.
