Just stopping by to rant

Why am I seeing the word "curate" everywhere, applying to rando collections of stuff? Unless one is the acquisitions manager for an art museum, could we all just agree that using the word curate is pretentious as fuck?

 

No, you did not curate your collection of: snack foods, shoes, pinterest images of mountains, knick-knacks or fossilized dogshit. You fucking collected it.

 

Thank you for listening.
