what you say: the art market is saturated!
what i hear: capitalism has utterly failed at satisfying the need of humans to self actualize
some former IBM VP is moving into a director role here
the ruling class just rotates from corporation to corporation and they're all the fucking same
she's very smug about how everything is going to change around here
she has said the word "culture" roughly three hundred and seventeen times
I dream about blood
I do this exercise any time I feel like I'm similarly stuck:
- List all of my current projects
- List what status they are in
- Make notes about them (an elevator pitch, a slightly longer description)
And then, as silly as this sounds, I read through the list and see what I would feel bad about not doing.
Anything that I want to do stays, anything I don't want to do goes on another list for me to re-consider at a later date.
I do it about once a month.
Godddd stop spreading the propaganda that entry-level retail workers are punished for other people's shoplifting. They aren't! I've worked retail for 4 years at 5 different places (Walgreens, Target - at 2 locations, Sam's, and 2 local places) and have never heard of this happening. Shrinkage is considered part of expenses, entry-level employees aren't expected to stop shoplifting (and are more often explicitly told not to), and this is definitely against company policy at any big chain
I'm sure it does happen under the table or at small businesses, but people talk about it like it's guaranteed every time you nick a drink. It's fucking not, and by saying this every single time someone talks about theft you're doing exactly what the capitalists - including the ones who enact this policy - want. They're holding workers hostage and you're giving in to their demands
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
