Principia Discordia | the book of Chaos, Discord and Confusion | Fnord! Yé-yé Yé-yé (French pronunciation: [jeje]) was a style of pop music that emerged from France, Italy and Spain in the early 1960s. The term "yé-yé" derived from "yeah! yeah!", popularized by British Beat music bands. The style expanded worldwide, due to the success of figures such as the French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. History Salut les copains Yé-yé girl Yé-yé music was a mostly European phenomenon and usually featured young female singers. The yé-yé songs had innocent themes such as Françoise Hardy's "Tous les garçons et les filles" ("All the guys and girls my age know how it feels to be happy, but I am lonely. The singers were also sexy in a deliberately naïve way. Among the yé-yé girls, Sylvie Vartan played the glamorous one. In 1967, the teen yé-yé singer Jacqueline Taïeb won the Best Newcomer award in Cannes at the Midem awards for her contribution of the hit single "7 heures du matin".

wearepicta.com The Situationist Absurdist Video Art The Game Design of Art "Anything can be art. Even a can of Campbell's soup." So admitted Roger Ebert , world-famous movie reviewer and notorious videogame detractor, back in July of 2007. However, continued Ebert, videogames will never be "high art." Ebert has held fast to his "games cannot be art" position for two and a half years, braving an e-firestorm of responses from passionate game fans. Many of Ebert's opponents have unwittingly invoked a fragment of Ebert's argument in defense of games: Anything can be art, therefore games are art. Of course, these game proponents don't state their position so baldly; instead, they point to cultural products that have no utilitarian value for survival. This "utilitarian test" is a nice thought experiment, but it ends up derailing the debate about games. Let's face it: Games, in general, suck. Ebert is right, at least so far.
