slacker seriousness and Entertainment


Yeap, i was chatting to Red about all this a couple of days ago, i think he likes to confuse the issue with serious prices and sales with serious art, what is it? especially when you throw the retarded deal of ebay into the mix,. Entertainment to him , which we talked about is a negative like artists should entertian, that trivialized the art or makes it look like its showmanship or pandering to cheapness, maybe. i say Entertainment is what people get from watching the flow of picture being turned out on ebay weekly, something i noticed as unique way back there that people will watch just to see what you make, if it don't get to borring and obviously directed towards a decorative gerna, . hell its all entertainment basicly the way i see, it. this sorta flippiant attidude i gots is from the or what i call the Slacker psychology , grew up around in Austin , its basicly ol hippy stuff which is ol country stuff -- now what am i talking about, well, ill be making a vid about it tonight, hummm
the slacker idea comes from the serious nature to suceed, its like "not whether you win or lose but how you play the game" type of stuff,. i told Red its how you play the game people will remeber not if you won by sales,. That one thing that can be a temptrese is sales if you take them seriously , well they should be but then again, you have to know why people buy and there are alot of rich folks out there playing games, something me and red figured out about ,. Besides Red , my adventures around art scene and watching all sorts of crowds talk about value , sales and how much something is worth, the really expenicive stuff not the stuff red points out like shark tank, but the local stuff where you actually see the price tag, is going to be this high end decrative markect that is everywhere its rich art made for rich people , who spend on impulse, , and ebay ain't much differnt, . if you want to make money , well your gonna have to be serious, its a career like a buisness, but if you want to make art and get respect by artists not rich ladys with to much time on there hands then , then your going to follow what creatively motives you other than an easy sale,
I always say its your imagination where does it go,? and how strong is it to pull you out of being intimadated by the seriousness of respect and peers, or value.
