Art Brut

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: Art Brut
Genre: Indie

Voting ends on: Monday, July 27th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended.

Peter Murphy On The Right - 1 vote
Second From Left Guy - 2 votes
ART BRUT Rating Of 8 - 2 votes
Chubby Nick Rhodes - 1 vote
Photo Left - 1 vote

A tie! A tie! As with all ties, we call upon the current sitting Vice President of the United States to make a decision.

"Yo, peeps!"

Hi, Mr. VP. Peeps, really?

"It all comes down to the ART BRUT Rating, peeps."

Please stop saying that.

"ART BRUT 8 is in charge!"

2nd from left guy.

And now I will be singing "My Little Brother" all day. Which is good, because someone just put "Kokomo" in my head earlier.

1. Assign values to each band member using their position in line. The first from the left is 1, the second is 2, etc.

2. Assign values to each photo based on where the actual person is standing in line. So left guy's photo also gets a 1, second from left's photo gets a 2, etc.

3. Add value of each band member to the value of the photo s/he's holding to arrive at each member's Additive Rating Tabulated By Random, Useless Theory (ART BRUT rating for short).

4. The middle guy is number 3 and is holding the photo of number 5. That gives him an ART BRUT rating of 8.

He's in charge.

art brut! hurrah!

2nd from the left looks the most pretentious. he's DEFINITELY in charge.

(although the ratings system devised by jared x is kind of awesome.)

Who am I to argue with science?
I'll take jared's word for it.

TheOtherJennifer said...

I cannot argue Jared's ART BRUT theory - math is not my thing - so middle guy gets my vote

word veri: semonize - the act of holding another's photo in front of your face to increase ART BRUT points
