Most of our local artists are weak and have no talent. They are really a bunch of unemployed people that just call themselves and each other artists.

Most artists are children of privilege. Most artists I know abuse SSI and other govt assistance programs. Occasionally a real artists emergencies from regular society, a writer or painter knocking out their work late at night or early mornings while working full time. Those are the only artists I care to pay attention to.

^^Most commentators to this post are broken, busted , bitter geezers without a talented bone in their rapidly decaying bodies. They hate what they ain't. They come here to seek interaction with other discarded and forgotten losers. They seek solace and comfort from a world that long ago recognized them as worthless.
