Coloring books for adults? Yeah, right . . .

Posted By on Tue, Jul 28, 2015 at 2:56 PM

Maybe if it was a Star Trek coloring book, I might be down with that, but the current craze for coloring books for “grown-ups” leaves me just a little cold; if it takes one of the current offerings to bring out an adult’s “creativity,” chances are said adult may not have much creativity to begin with.

At any rate, I’m not impressed in any way with the coloring books offered to adults, whether it be to relieve stress or get in touch with our inner Michelangelo. The pictures are silly.

They aren’t cool. They are Silly.

I mean, if you want a coloring book, why not just say, “Hey, I wouldn’t mind indulging in that again for a while.” Don’t gussy it up by all getting all pretentious on everybody.

As for bringing out your creativity, what happened to the old blank sheet of paper? Or the walls of an abandoned building?

Or your neighbor’s garage?

That’s creativity.

Creating art from nothingness.

Still, if you have a hankering for some Star Trek coloring pages, here is a cool site for you:

Just don’t try to pretend you are letting your creativity all loose and everything. Somebody is liable to come along and take your lunch money . . .

    Personally, I think things started going to Hell when folks were seriously asked, “Which candidate would you rather have a beer with?” Because, to be honest, there just aren’t all that many of my former drinking codkpaniopns I’d like to see in any positions of authority.

  • Patriotism as performance art

    Generally my feeling about standing for the National Anthem is the same as reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or taking part in school prayer (yes, I’m that old) - if you aren’t enthusiastic about what you are doing, well, it just becomes something you do to please others.
