Arlo Guthrie, a Conceptual Artist.

So, this is the only video I could find with the audio I wanted.  And it is a strange, strange montage, which I am happy to tell you I did not spend 6 minutes watching.

"I told just about everything there was to tell about it- how come, why, what for, but you know what I always used to neglect to explain was the significance of the pickle."  And, though the pickle features in the rest of the song, it's not exactly what is "significant."  The pickle remains a red herring. That seems like the just about the perfect way to write about art- all the details, but revealing none of the mystery.

Also, if this isn't discursive, I don't know what is.
