He does... no one in the family, except Mom, thinks it's funny. Although, I did catch our sister smiling once.

Ha! We all do it EXCEPT Mom, and we think we are the cat's copy.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to copy Pointy for some time now. And just recently, I've been trying to channel some guy known as Nixter. Have not had much luck.... will keep trying....

For me, this opens up a whole new challenge, to be called out.

After having achieved the Brown Ribbon as a plan, there hasn't been much point left for me at DPC. This new rule could inspire many of the DPC nutters to attain a new, off-the-wall goal.

How else would she get them out?

People claim, for example, that glasses shots are overdone. But other than the basic components, I'd argue each of my glasses shots is quite different from the others.

I mean, feel free to not like any of them, and I'll be the first to admit there's very little emotional impact in any of them. But don't tell me they're the same shot over and over.

OH MAN... didn't even read this thread and i started this one yesterday i think...

Honesty I don't mind copies, and I think I heard from somewhere, it says, for the photography

There are no "NEW" ideas anymore, there are BETTER COPIES

As long as i can do better than last one, it's good.

OK, if not illegal to suggest this, everyone who values originality please hurry over to the "Yellow" challenge and give higher scores to all the ones that seem original to you. (Scuttles back to Update button to see if this pushes own entry 0.05 points higher to have it end up on personal profile page..., ...).

I think we need another "Never Before Seen On DPC" challenge.

Plagarize! Let no one else's work evade your eyes!

Remember why the Good Lord made your eyes,
So just plagarize, plagarize, PLAGARIZE!
Only ... be sure always to call it, please, "research."

--Tom Lehrer, Lobachevsky (1952)

Who's gonna check that?

I'm guessing this idea is based on frustration at the lack of originality of photos
but copied photos are a result of the general lack of appreciation of originality by the voters.

Quite a paradox for anyone who wants to submit original ideas AND get a high score best to hope for a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous ribbon ;P

We could take this discussion to a whole new direction.

Think of Winslow Homer with all those stormy seas paintings.
Now, really. Having seen one stormy (shades of gray, green, blue) wave, we've seen 'em all! Right?
Or there's Magritte who was very good at painting a guy in a black hat.
And he did it more than once!
Perhaps Peter Paul Rubens comes to mind. Without all his paintings of well-upholstered women,
where would we get the term "Rubenesque!"

In any event, no matter which 'side' one chooses in this discussion,

Some might see it that way, but personally I don't... He was simply venting.

Not everything that is "out-of-the-ordinary" is art. Our landfills are full of things that at one time or another had, (in the eyes of the producer) potential.

There is one art;
no more, no less
to do all things
with artlessness.

Shocked and Apalled! That is Paul Reubens, aka "Pee Wee Herman"
