If I say I am an artist and I create something, doesn't it automatically become art? How it is experienced, whether or not you agree with it, or for any other reason, somebody outside of the artist cannot say it is not art. Therefore, if a videogame creator says that his work is art, it is art.

That may not work. You might have to ramp it up over time. Start with hamsters, sure. Work your way up through cats, dogs, and eventually you can work your way up to seals.

Personally, I'm going to eat another steak every time they issue a press release. Not sure how effective it'll be, but it's sure tasty.

I read this wrong as ramp it over time, so you start by using a shovel, then later on you put down cinder blocks and some plywood, and start jumping a row of hamsters with your monster truck.

Dead? No excuse for laying off work.
