The Seven Deadly Arts by David Lance Goines

Just as there are Virtues and Sins; just as the Letter killeth and the Spirit giveth life, so are there Arts that prosper humanity and arts that are a pain in the neck. The Seven Deadly Arts are:


Science Fiction Poetry

Performance Art

Bell Ringing

Liturgical Dance

Experimental Film


Maybe they aren't doing it on purpose, but sometimes it sure seems that way.

With thanks to Tom Weller, who originated the concept. -- DLG
