The ARTSY video is none of that.The ARTSY movement can best be explained as an experiment in ARTOLOGY.For those who have been surrounded by the ARTSY video, its familiarity and cultural resonance is comforting and owning an ARTSY video provides a souvenir or keepsake, a memento. People have often demanded the ARTSY video merely because they have seen it everywhere and possessing an ARTSY video provides a sense of belonging. The ARTSY video seems mostly to be embraced by those who are (or at least want to seem to be) ARTSY.Lyrics: YOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU GOT SIDE BURNS AND VINTAGE TEEYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU PLUCK A GUITAR THAT AIN'T AIN'T FUCKIN' BIZARREYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU LIVE IN LOS FELIZ, BITCH YOU AIN'T JESUSYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEI GOT A COLORFUL VOCAB WATCH THE LOW JABSO WHAT YOU'RE A VEGANIT SHOWS IN YOUR PRESENCE; YOU BE GEEKIN'AND YOU BEEN SEEKIN' THE SAME LIGHTSPEAKIN' OF GAME LIKE THE ENEMY, HANG TIGHTI GOT A TALE ABOUT SIX FOOT ONE BY INFINITYFULL OF SUN, RAIN AND POTENTIAL ENERGYALL THEY SAW WERE THE K-SWISSCLEAN, CRISP, CREASED JEANS MEANS THISSO YOU THOUGHT AND DIPPEDMY WALK'S HIP, THOUGHTS; HIPPERUNZIP THE ZIPPERNO I DON'T WEAR HEMP OR DRINK LIQUORTHAT DON'T MAKE ME THE MAN JUST A LITTLE BIT SICKERSPIT KICKER WITH AN EYE FOR THE BIG DIPPER FROM AN ISLAND CLIFF EMERGES A LOUD WHISPERAND I'M PROUD OF THIS, IT'S MY ARTYOUR DOIN' YOGA JUST TO LOOK THE PARTYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU CHOP UP BREAKS AND YOU DIG IN THE CRATESYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEYOU'RE JUST A TRENDY LESBIAN DREADLOCKED THESPIANYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU MAKE WEED BROWNIES AND KNIT WOOL HATSYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEYOU PSEUDO ELITIST OLD SCHOOL SAPDON'T LET AN 808 SCARE YASHAKE STRIPES OF YOUR SHIRT AND CLEAR THE WHOLE AREAI'M A HUMANOID TOOAND IF YOU'RE COOL WITH ME THEN I'LL LOOK PAST THE VOID IN YOUINSTEAD OF THROUGHI'M DOWN WITH VW'S AND FLOSSED OUT CADDY'S ON 22'S TOOI BANG FOR GOOD, FOOLS KILL FOR NOTHIN'I BUILD FOR SOMETHINFAMILY AND PEACEHAND ME THE PIECEI'LL HIT IT I'M SOCIALHEAR MY OPINIONI'M PROUD, I'M VOCALLOCAL IN A FOREIGN PLACEMORE DIGITAL THAN DUSTYBUT TRUST ME, I BE TOURIN' SPACEYOU BE WHORING AT A COMFORTABLE PACEYOU BE SKIPPIN' A CHORE TO JUMP IN THE RACEI BE BUMPIN' MY BASS LIKE YOU COLLECT COMICSI'M NOT WIERD, I'M HONESTYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU ONLY READ BOOKS, DON'T WATCH T.V.YOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU SHOP AT WHOLE FOODS IN OPEN TOED SHOESYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU SPEAK REAL SOFT AND DRINK CHAI TEAYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEI RECYCLE TOO, I'M KIND OF LIKE YOUI JUST LOOK CLEANER, GROWN DEMEANORWEAR DEODERANT, REGISTERED VOTERAND A TREE HUGGER TOO, NOT IN THESE CLOTHESME LOVA A YOU BUT IT'S GOTTA BE BOTH WAYSMOST DAYS I'M EARTHY, STAY GROUNDEDOFTEN IT'S A PAPER CHASE, I'M WELL ROUNDEDSTRAIGHTER FACE, TOWNISH, IT'S ALL BOUNDLESSI MAKE IT SOUND UNIVERSALLY DOPEOVERCOME ADVERSITY, RESHAPE THE WORST OF MEDO IT FOR THE LOVE AND RELEASE IT COMMERCIALLYLIKE A BLOCKBUSTER STARTED AT SUNDANCECAN'T STOP MAN, YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCEPRESENTATION IS KEY, HESITATION AIN'T SEEINNOVATION IS MY A-R-TDEDICATION IS FREE, OCCUPATION IS MEINNOVATION IS MY A-R-TYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU DRIVE A HYBRID AND CARPOOL WITH THREEYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MECAUSE YOU'RE A SIXTEENTH MEXICAN, YOU AIN'T ETHNICAND YOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEYOU'RE JUST A BROKE ASS POET WITH THE SAME OLD CADENCEYOU AIN'T ARTSIER THAN MEWE WERE CONSCIOUS FIRST, WELCOME TO EARTH hipster history Grouch LivingLegends Artsy buildestroy old school art graffiti rappers rap animation motion graphics fx
