Still, living in a college town, I've seen more than my share of "art" that is little more than a random collection of garbage, perhaps painted vividly (and more often than not, with obscenities,) and presented as deep, authentic, emotional, soul-expression. And it works so much better if it has an unusual title, perhaps a prepositional phrase, or a even participial phrase.
So, in my moments of free time (and twisted sense of humor), guess what I found?
There are Random Generators for writing prompts!
Did you know this? Why am I the last one in on the fun?! I could use these with the boys, but that's for another time. Today, I made up a little game for myself. Gunnar and I asked Uncle Google for some pictures of modern art, and then trolled the generators for titles. Which probably make as much sense or more, as some of the things I've seen. So, completely randomly, I present you with our results:
Inside the Box of Stale Breakfast Cereal
Touching Her Nose to Prove It Was Still There
Tearing the Sock from His Throbbing Foot
Upon a Chair of Solid Gold
Before the Throne of the Cruelest King
Waking Suddenly and Without Any Explanation
Joking aside... no, no, not quite...
Okay, okay, I'll stop now. Gunnar and I found one we actually liked.
Have fun, and good night :D
