Short Story Debate

I will start a short story, and my opponent will add a new part. Which ever side gets the most votes had the best part of the story! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are ever feeling lost or alone, there will come a time when you will see a bus. It looks pretty normal. It's white with a blue stripe going all the way around it, free from advertisements. For some unknown reason, you're going to feel like the bus is drawing y...

Can animals (non-human) create art?

ooberman
DaFarmerProject

My argument is that animals can create art for 1 reason. There is no objective definition of art. Therefore, if a man wants to sign a urinal and call it art (Duchamp), or an elephant steps on some paper and an art dealer wants to sell it to a wealthy idiot, it is still art. Art is subjective, so much so that it's a wonder how we let Universities charge people to learn it. Con will have to show that there are objective rules to art that distinguish between "real" art and "fake" art or, m...

360mph
larztheloser

So, this will basically be similar to the composition contest that my opponent and I had done (http://www.debate.org/debates/Composition-Contest/4/) but with lyrics writing instead music composition. I will give my opponent his topics, and he shall give me mine. The topics can be just about anything...objects, events, people, places, concepts, things...just listing some things for inspiration purposes. The song's lyrics can use the topic in any way the writer chooses as long as the topic...

Is simplicity in literature overrated?

Ghosty
NiqashMotawadi3

"Art is not difficult because it wishes to be difficult, rather because it wishes to be art. However much the writer might long to be, in his work, simple, honest, straightforward, these virtues are no longer available to him. He discovers that in being simple, honest, straightforward, nothing much happens... We are looking for the as yet unspeakable, the as yet unspoken." -Donald Barthelme The quote above illustrates my stance on the topic. Please, if you accept this debate, explain w...

Haiku Battle

MassiveDump

For this debate it does not matter whether you are con or pro. All that matters is who can write the best Haiku. Haiku- a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons. This debate will be 5 rounds. Since a Haiku is focused on seasons this is how the debate will be broken down to. Haiku must be original from writer no pla...
