Shakespeare vs. Britney

I found this little battle of great artists while browsing today, and thought I’d share. The premise is simple, if a bit tedious – define what is important in defining art, then pick two “great” artists (ranging from Britney Spears through Stephen King to William Shakespeare. Then state how well each of your artists attains the goals that you set. See how much work it is? That’s why I’ve linked right to the last page which shows the scores.

Two things that would make the game more fun — be able to add new artists, and let mob rule determine a set of defaults for each artist if you don’t feel like selecting from a dozen checkboxes. There’s really nothing to stop you from just selecting the best values for Shakespaere and the worst for everybody else if you wanted to, but where’s the fun in that?
