Onani Master Kurosawa is quite a 'masterpiece'. Most people in this thread have agreed by the way, not just me.
Jgray, and others all liked it so it's not just a 'panda likes it' thing.
Because seriously, it is quite good.
TYG, its a matter of upbringing and what not. But most people do indeed place an intrinsic value on inanimate objects while some place them on animate animals and most people both.
Depressing things can be masterpieces, sure. See Punpun :P
I'm just not in the mood for stuff like this.
And that is A-OK!
I value and like all my super special versions of CDs, my big comfy wingchair, my books, plants etc etc.
But something like a car or a bicyle are really just things that help me getting from A to B.
My PC let's me do all the PC stuff that I like so much. Nothing more than a tool to me.
I hope you get what I'm trying to say.
