We were mentioned in enemy of the show the New York Times by friend of the show Zachary Small! The movement to organize art and cultural workers has been steadily growing despite pandemic setbacks, how do we feel about it? We promise to never do the cis white art bro thing and claim to be an authority on this subject, even though we literally have dedicated our lives to studying it every week lol. We will, however, always advocate for better pay and workplace conditions for all workers, labor aristocracy be damned!

Darcie, OK, and Sarah get in their feelings this week after some hurtful, toxic people decided to write articles that gave them agita and welled their sparkling Ghibli-wiggly eyes. OK, as per usual, sat too long above the Delphic vapors and what was once incomprehensible babbling now proves prophetic. What is it about this big beautiful city that takes over peoples brains like the fungus that spores out of an ant’s head and says “what culture is missing is my trailblazing frippery. I am truly a tribune of the people (who own iPhones)” (subscribe to the patreon at patreon.com/artandlabor)?

Embrace the dark twin pillars of compulsive dirtbag left-bashing and yelling at them dag-nabbed trustfund Party Monsters to get off our lawn. Remember kids, the only good affect is a flat affect and other negative symptoms, present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period, concurrent with at least one other characteristic: delusions, hallucinations, or disorganized speech (e.g., frequent derailment or incoherence), and when depressive or bipolar disorder with psychotic features has been ruled out.

So beautiful to see artworkers on the cover of the paper of record! Too bad NYT whiffs it so hard—for an article about worker struggle they sure showcase a lot of bosses. We discuss how the media frames systemic issues in defeatist or individualist terms, we push against the scarcity mindset, encourage more decentralized actions, and urge everyone to demand public museum ownership. This is the episode for our takes on “The Tear Gas Biennial,” and it’s complicated! PS the new Lion King is just The Veldt come true.
