When you buy from MegaCorp, you're purchasing more than just life insurance. You're buying hundreds of hours of endless board meetings and administrative errors. You are buying days of multiple signature sign-offs, mind numbingly tedious health and safety audits. You are buying days, weeks, months of redundancy fears, family problems and very little joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of people's livelihoods. More importantly, you are buying our workers more time to do something that they may not be passionate about, but are thankful for; something that makes all the fear and the doubt just about worth getting out of bed for every single mindnumbing day.

If I didn't have other stuff to do and ILX to distract me, I would make a Tumblr page with a million fake Kurt Vonnegut quotes, like "Know what? Bitches get stuff done. - Kurt Vonnegut."

Even the "good" ones, the ones on the side of the angels, are still kind of STOP WITH THE JPGS ALREADY, EVERYONE'S WACKY AUNT. Like the one about how the poor in America view themselves as temporarily inconvenienced millionaires.

my personal least favorite is the Ira Glass "you're creative and have good taste sorry you can't do exactly what you want with your life" quote

The ones that are thinly-disguised guerilla marketing campaigns for far-right parties are the ones that go from objectionable to downright FUCK YOU. Especially when you get 28 people liking and going "LOL, so true" etc...

Scary Move 4 (dog latin), Thursday, 12 July 2012 14:55 (eight years ago) link

was the first one "ask not what your country " etc?

Mark G, Thursday, 12 July 2012 14:57 (eight years ago) link

my first thought was, whoever wrote that must be making some terrible art

then I googled rebekah joy plett and found out she should've wrote "you are buying hundreds of hours spent copying the work of mark ryden"

LOL some people are so fucking deluded about the amount of narcissism and inflated sense of self worth that drives people to be "artists"

calum-y maybe (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 12 July 2012 14:58 (eight years ago) link

I don't have that many Facebook friends to begin with and 2/3 of them are hidden but occasionally one of those wacky e-postcards with the "vintage" clip art slip through the cracks and I get a little IA.

Hate when I add someone and I find out almost immediately that they are WACKY AUNT and I lose a little respect for them. :)

It's a strange business. They're all like that, it's just that a tiny minority of them are actually good enough to justify it. The whole system depends on this kind of narcissism. You can't really devote your life to making art if you don't have it.

I know! You need to study and earn that narcissm, they don't understAND!!

Yes, but they had to 'design' the bookshelf instalation as well, didn't they?

Mark G, Thursday, 12 July 2012 15:03 (eight years ago) link

btw ira glass yr show is good and all but not really on the level where you need to be handing out advice on creativity and taste

not to mention that it's clearly not enough bookshelves!

Wait, your aunt posts Tesla quotes? Does she have a twitter where I can follow her? That sounds like a straight-up awesome aunt.

Queue de Cheval (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Thursday, 12 July 2012 15:07 (eight years ago) link

OK, I *always* knew that one. (xpost)

Mark G, Thursday, 12 July 2012 15:08 (eight years ago) link

ira glass advice is not bad imo but he's basically saying "practice makes perfect" in 200 words.

ledge, Thursday, 12 July 2012 15:08 (eight years ago) link

also what happened to just like, posting a quote in text

we should all start putting these quotes on FB except with lolcat images

if only he had worked on his meme a little bit more, maybe his execution could've matched his ambition

Mordy, Thursday, 12 July 2012 15:09 (eight years ago) link

and yeah the worst thing about these are the wordiness, remember when quotes were pithy and succinct

"do a lot of work" is always good advice, unless your work sucks. even then, as long as you don't show it to anyone, who cares?

depends how much you need, I suppose. So if you need to be lazy all the time, that's fine.
