Types of fArts

Post by durangopipe » Thu Dec 27, 2018 11:52 am

I was wondering if a broad and comprehensive way of defining and categorizing different types of fArts in a consistent and easy-to-understand way had been attempted.

I'm not sure if one exists, but if I were to attempt to do it - I would use a couple different categories:

---
Categorized by medium:
---

Performance fArts:

fArts which are meant to be viewed or experienced as live performances

Examples: Competitive fArts (e.x length, loudness, fire-related competitions), singing and musical performance, theater, public speaking, beauty-related fArts (e.x. dog farts, horse farts, fArting for sport)

Static fArts:

fArts which are meant to be simply smelled or experienced as finished products

Examples: Elevator, classroom, office, digital fArts (e.x. computer simulations); fArts and music appreciation (tone vibrato and tremolo, or “musical” evaluation in general (as opposed to smell production) might also be considered a "fArt" in itself

---
Categorized by subject matter:
---


*fArts which represent living things:

Examples: fArts which represents animals, people, or other living creatures (e.x. mythological or extraterrestrial beings)

*fArts which represent non-living things in nature:

Examples: fArts depicting natural wonders such as stagnant ponds, ocean doldrums , decomposing vegetable matter

*fArts which represent non-living things:

Examples: fArts depicting gasseus human ideas or inventions such as cities, cars or the hundredth monkey

*Pure abstract or transcendent fArts:

fArts depicting abstract or transcendent concepts

Example: The Big Bang
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

What about categorization by the results or lasting impacts of the farts? For example some farts will clear a room, others might leave a stain, others might require you to swap chairs with an office mate when they weren't looking, some might end relationships altogether.

My wife has a terrible sense of smell so part of the joy is timing the fart and her reaction when she smells it.

Fartin' Fainn ... and you wonder why you don't have friends? How did you manage to get married? Was it arranged? :signofcross:

For the record my wife has an amazing sense of smell, so the joy of timing and executing a good fart is truly an art. :lol:

I have no class. None. I like to think I do, but I think farts, fart jokes, and eructation are the pinnacle of refined culture. Mermaids like to fart too: :mermaid: see?

I don't have any friends because I moved out of state.
