Work Smarter, Not Harder

January 9, 2018

Work smarter, not work harder, says the motto.

My response, yes. Too often people advise others that hard work is enough. But that does not always work.

Here is an example: you go to a bank and ask for free money. They say no. Not working hard enough! You have to try one hundred, or one thousands banks!

This is a problem I see in all the arts. Musicians, writers, filmmakers, artists, etc., all not seeing that how much you work won’t change a system that has become unfair to so many.

Corporations, through media consolidation, have the upper hand in all these industries, and they push profit over quality. Work hard, and work smart. Rebel against the system or you are just asking banks for free money.

Many seem to settle for all the arts to be ruined because of business demands for profit. And they allow their favorite musicians, writers, artists, filmmakers to be marginalized out of fair reviews and careers. For some reason, too many now think that if THEY can search out and find an elusive great talent, that is enough. It is not.

Virtually every talented musician, painter, writer, filmmaker, etc that you have to search for, is making minimum wage. Great talent should be the most celebrated, not the most marginalized.

The history of art has never been like this before. The best art has always been the most talked about, written about, and reviewed. The entire art world is upside down. That is why the art revolution to change it.

August 10, 2017

Dear Reader,

The best of the art world is not confined to galleries or museums. More and more the best artists are not in either!

When looking for the most exciting and progressive art – not a rehash of last century art – please look to these artists:

1. Illustrators
2. Fashion designers
3. Video game artists
4. Animated film artists
5. Comic and graphic novel artists.
6. Graffiti artists.
7. Primitive artists.
8. Online artists.

Revolution in Arts, Recommendations

April 20, 2017

PAGE OF RECOMMENDATIONS.

The years of advocating for more quality in the arts and more fairness for all, has led to certain recurring Best Ideas.
First we should by law end the conglomeration of the arts and media into so few corporate hands. Then we need to build support for independent artists and media.

=============

to: CORPORATE ART AND MEDIA CONGLOMERATES.

The law should be clear. You can:

1. Make the art
2. Distribute the art.
3. Publicize and review the art on your entertainment and media outlets.

BUT YOU CAN’T DO ALL THREE!

==================

to: INDEPENDENT ARTISTS AND MEDIA.

We should build and support the following.

1. Reviews for all. Fair, guaranteed no-ad, online, reviews for a processing fee, that allows any artist in any type of art to compete on quality.

2. Pay for Play. Set up an online pay for play service where clicking on a webpage pays a penny or so to access the work of the artist, musician, writer, filmmaker, architect, dancer, photographer, journalist, etc. This simple step eliminates the entire layer of corporate middlemen, allows any artist of any kind to get compensation, and allows independent media to be free of any ads or sponsors.

3. Major Art Centers. Cities, art agencies, the national government, and/or private citizens should promote art centers open to all arts and all the people.
