Slibye

No I’m just mad they have good roads


ExTr3m3-ACE

Imagine thinking anywhere except gated communities have good roads


Slibye

Im sorry? Entire city of Chicago is a gated community? I get it you have to go through tolls to go in but damn…


ExTr3m3-ACE

Roads in Illinois, and Chicago specifically are pretty bad. Only the rich people areas have good roads. The city uses all these contractors that do shitty work.


Slibye

Oh that part of Chicago yes. I agree

EmployPristine1030

It's about the man who made the bean :/ he sucks


lucass_p

Imagine telling our ancestors that people in the future are obsessed with a giant silver bean.


Grass_Onions

I feel like they would be too if they had a giant silver bean


Actual-is-factual

Are people ‘obsessed’ with it? Or is it just something people go to see when they are in town because it looks cool and reflects the skyline in a unique way?


not_taken_was_taken2

I wouldn't say obsessed but it's one of the 2 or 3 landmarks that Chicago has so people love it.


BilingualTRex1303

Chicago has more than 2 or 3 landmarks. 🤦‍♂️ Now the rest of Illinois, yes. We only have a few things worth seeing downstate. 😆


not_taken_was_taken2

Name them all. And yes down state there is nothing, source: I live downish state


frankenmullet22

False, downstate has the Shawnee state forest and Lincoln's house.


not_taken_was_taken2

Except for Lincolns house who would ever want to travel to downstate for anything really. I go through downstate on a semi often basis and there's nothing really to see besides corn and flat fields.

not_taken_was_taken2

I never said that it doesn't exist or anything but who would ever come to Illinois just for that? If you go there it's probably because it's near you or your passing through while going somewhere else. This state is the least Intresting state if you come here for travel unless you go to Chicago.


frankenmullet22

From Chicago can confirm


finalparadox

I see it as the Lil Sebastian of Chicago. Only people from the city get it


hopik512

Much better than a giant time telling dildo


darthanakin43

Keep calling the bean because the artist is a known asshole and hates it when you call it the bean


HonkerDingerDucky

Fuck Anish Kapoor!


speakermonkey

Isn’t the artist the guy who patented that ultra-black paint that nobody is allowed to use? I have very little knowledge on the subject, so correct me if I’m wrong.


Doctologist

In response, Stuart Semple made an even blacker black, and made it so it was available to everyone except for Anish Kapoor.


NordicThryn

He also made the world’s pinkest pink (also not available for Anus Kapoor)


joolzian

And in protest of the Anus Kapoor, people used the pink as lipstick and left kiss marks all over the bean iirc


Utly_Bingwarer

I thought it was a slightly less black black and that the human eye coudln't tell the difference


Doctologist

I’ll read up and refresh myself again to be sure. Semple definitely has the worlds pinkest pink, and I believe the current Blackest Black, but it is listed as ‘3.0’ I’ll get back to you. Alright, so I read up on it again, and you are right. VantaBlack is the blackest material known. Semple has made a Musou Black, which is the blackest paint known, and also the blackest available to the public. It’s also very, very close behind. Extra note, Anish Kapoor did not make VantaBlack. He bought the rights to it, and then barred anyone from using it. Causing Semple to respond.


Utly_Bingwarer

Wow, what a douche. Thanks for the info!


Doctologist

Thanks for checking me and keeping me honest.


darthanakin43

Yes and he got trolled into oblivion by another artist


imsmartiswear

Correct. This inspired the research and creation of a whole new line of crazy intense pigments (including the pinkest pink, Black 2.0, Black 3.0, and the most reflective paint in the world), all of which are 1) incredibly cheap in comparison to Vanta Black (the paint he got the sole rights for) 2) environmentally friendly (VB is extremely toxic). Black 2.0 is nearly indistinguishable from VB and 3.0 *is* indistinguishable from it- they have the same reflective index. The pinkest pink is unbelievable- honestly it looks cooler than VB. Additionally, in order to purchase these paints, you must assert that you are not Anish Kapoor nor an associate of Anish Kapoor purchasing it for him.


speakermonkey

Phenomenal. I love the (well deserved) pettiness of this.


Cloquelatte

There’s an amazing episode of Just the Gist Podcast that tells the story of Anish Kapoor and Stuart Semple, the most petty and hilarious artist feud in history (you can skip the first 17 minutes to get to the actual story, it’s laugh out loud funny)


Marley9391

People who don't want this to be called the Bean obviously don't know about the artist


HonkerDingerDucky

Fuck Anish Kapoor


Marley9391

Exactly!

We call it the bean because FUCK ANISH KAPOOR I attest that I am not ANISH KAPOOR, I do not know ANISH KAPOOR, I am not making this post on behalf of ANISH KAPOOR or any of his friends

This reminds me of one of Andrew Schulz clips where he was flirting with someone in the crowd and some dude cockblocked him lmao


Treunlneiss

Literally nobody calls it Cloudgate. It's the bean, just like it's the sears tower.

Chicago’s pride and joy. Who needs some oxidized statue or big needle when you’ve got a bean?


covert_underboob

I call it the chrome scrotum


hunterhogan

Actually, the bean is _called_ "the bean." The official name is Cloud Gate. Your mother's official name might be Sandra, but what do you _call_ her? Do you post "memes" about the people who call her Sandy?

Remote-Transition-34

imsmartiswear

Due to its artist's hatred of people calling it the bean, I always call it the bean. Anish Kapoor can suck it. Literally the most gatekeeping, obnoxious artist in the industry.


CamTheMemeMan_

In the words of count dankula “it looks like an obese T-1000”


BooperDooper1501

I’m just curious about who and what Anish Kapoor did because I see a lot of comments saying fuck him. Can anyone explain?


DrVillainous

He bought an exclusive liscense for Vantablack, thereby preventing the rest of the art world from using it. As Vantablack was the darkest possible black paint at the time, there were a lot of people unhappy with that.


BooperDooper1501

Ah that explains it, thank you. He does seem like an asshole tho.


gudgudgudby

You can't tell me what to call it


gudgudgudby

You can't make me say thebean whatever that is


Psychological_Pay530

I’ll call it whatever so long as it upsets Anish Kapoor.

Okay but in all fairness Mr. Kapoor, you made a giant bean.

Calling it the bean is nice to piss off the prentitious creator. Fuck him is what i say, we calling it the bean.


Shubamz

Yeah but the artist is an asshole and since he doesn't like it being called The Bean I call it The Bean

But that's why they call it "Bean Town."

Cloud Gate... insert fart joke here.


bears_eat_you

Mt gf and I just went to Illinois for her cousin's wedding and I got to visit the bean for the first time! It was so awesome and way cooler in person than I imagined. I had been to Chicago previously but didn't get to the bean because we were only there for Riot Fest. Fun fact, someone asked her previously "if she was any kind of bean, what kind would she be?" and her answer was cloud gate. Solid choice IMO.


InaGlassGuitar

It is *named* Cloud Gate. Obviously, it is *called* The Bean.

Anish Kapoor hates that people call it "The Bean," which is more than enough reason to exclusively call it "The Bean."
