trolling the bright waters of the internet
Do you consider there to be a difference between ugly and tacky?
That's an interesting and quite philosophical question. It's a fine line, and comes down to bravado. I see tackiness as an ugly subset of kitsch: it's always done with lofty intentions, but fails miserably. Some things are ugly without being tacky--say, the Ugly Building in downtown Olympia. It's an offense against the landscape, but lacks the panache of the truly tacky.Does that make sense?
I think so.I love that the "Ugly Building in downtown Olympia" is capitalized therefore making "Ugly Building" it's official name.
