Starving artists hardest hit

16 Jul

What a shame if all those who delude themselves that they might catch a break making proggy agitprop for big bucks can’t even keep their bar / restaurant jobs, and have to move back home with their parents, to their red state small towns, where their kind are outnumbered and their blue votes end up cancelled in a red sea…

I feel so sorry for them… {/sarc} 😂

And imagine how terrible if there’s nobody to write or act in the next ‘Rent’ or ‘Glee’ or whatever…

What a crying shame! {/sarc} 😂

    This should be about jobs, about 195,000 of them. There is going to be a ripple effect through the economy affecting all the sectors that would be servicing these people and a lot of landlords that can’t make the payments. From what I saw while living in coastal California, politicians are very sensitive to the needs of landlords.

      I do agree. But the New York liberal media can only think of jobs of the proletariat in terms of how it affects their art and culture; they don’t care about those people as people.

      Now, I do care about the job losses, and I have stated my opposition to the lockdown from day one.

      But I don’t care if a bunch of baristas have to move back home and in with mom and dad; they should be happy if they can do so because others losing jobs don’t have anywhere to go. I feel more sorry for those than for young flaky supposed artist types – I say supposed, because modern day art isn’t. It’s agitprop and crap. Same with architecture as info says.

        I can see that. The media can only relate to that which affects them directly. That is what happens when they won’t come out of their ivory towers.

      And I feel for those impacted by their leaving – grocers, landlords, etc.

        There are about two jobs in other sectors that are dependent on someone working full time. It has a multiplying effect. Now, I have another reason to be furious over this gigantic fraud.

    If they are creators of trash and ugliness and not beauty. I include the architects as well. They deserve this.

      Oh heck yes.

      But architects tend to be better connected, in my observation, than artist types; theirs is less an art and more a trade, and as such, it’s easier in normal times for them to find work in their field rather than end up a barista at Starbucks or bartending / waiting.

        @Will S.

        Modernist school of architecture is such a disaster. I wish for a comeback of Renaissance,Gothic and Classical Schools.

        Oh yeah, agree completely, info.

        Heck, I’d be happy if even just Art Deco and Art Nouveau made a comeback! 🙂

    “have to move back home with their parents, to their red state small towns, where their kind are outnumbered and their blue votes end up cancelled in a red sea…”

    NO, NO, NO! You want to concentrate the Blue votes in NY and CA. They’re going to vote for the D no matter what in those states, and there’s no increase in electoral votes as a result. Having these kids move to Ohio or Iowa or Wisconsin is MUCH more damaging electorally.

      You figure? Aren’t there enough Republicans in most of the ‘Flyover’ states (as progs say) to dilute the added impact of those urbanites, particularly with them spread out across the other 48?

      And if the proportion of young people dips enough in NY and LA, couldn’t that tip some parts of those cities the other way? Or does the presence of so many minorities voting Dem automatically minimize mean those cities are helplessly blue?
