too-late Pop

Why you should wait a day before posting. Wrote this in a fit of pique after someone dissed animated GIFs:


Was being mildly ironic: the "pop art" link went to an '80s painting of a Jack Kirby panel that I was calling "late pop." The point was you can make whatever continuities you want with GIFs, or not, but to peg them solely as a late '90s relic was as limiting as definitively calling them art.

The text above was screen captured and posted to by a, er, vocal Dumper who thinks calling online activity "net art" is the height of pretension (as best I can make out from his complaints). I wish I could make every post nuanced since I am no fan of most things self-consciously described as "net art" either but sometimes you just get annoyed.
