Do an image search on David Helmericks if you want to see contemporary art... it is that easy. Then you decide.
I read everybody's post. Everyone is entitled to their opinion right wrong, it doesn't matter. There is a channel, a paper, a blogger, something somewhere from somebody that will support a particular point of view. The machine is out of control; there’s no stopping it, there's no going back, only moving on. Create a commission, a study group, research it to the hilt, and you will still be missing the point, unless you are talking about spending. One of the post mentioned Rupert Murdoch. He doesn't care about news, what is fact or fiction, where it came from; who got it is missing the point. The media cares about one thing and only one thing SELLING!!! selling diapers, selling miracle drugs, selling anti aging cream, selling cars, trucks, and testosterone supplement; not the news or politics. Commissions and study groups are created to spend more money. It is only about selling... selling anything to everyone all the time.
The hard hitters at the Gadsden are the best – anyone interested in the coming art scene should make it there – they have the right idea, and the price is right… see ya.
I hate to sound cynical but the whole thing is a scam. Just look at AT&T and Comcast; we pay a lot of money to those content providers. The shows are low cost, idiotic, and rife with commercials. Companies pay to advertise and we pay to watch. It is all wrong. We should be getting paid to watch that crap. The products they advertise are just that, crap. The thigh buster the step climber and many other close pin devices they can make for a nickel and sell for that magic price of $19.99 with easy pay! We are indoctrinated with stupid. Drug companies advertising products for heartburn; with disclaimers that it may cause death, wow! W.C. Fields said it seventy years ago and it is true today “there is a sucker born every second”. And as far as educating the public, another myth, that is out of control. I went to a state school in FL for $2,500 a year. Now that won’t even pay for a single class. The American dream is being clubbed to death, and when you are down someone will pick your pocket. Though, from what I hear the economy is turning up, just remember to ask for easy pay.
In 2008 we had a chance, a brief moment in time, to really change the power and political landscape of this great country. That didn’t happen… no, instead the sheep were told a story of doom, which they believed and there was a massive taxpayer bailout, which prevented the flushing of the old power brokers. And instead of heading towards a new light we are headed back into the darkness of intolerance and religious fanaticism.
