Sermon:

How often do friends, colleagues, or people whose work you admire make verbal promises to join forces with you to do something amazing?  How often do these individuals follow through and make good on that promise?  How often does nothing materialize from those exchanges?  And after you get over the fact that they're a bullshit flaker.  After you find the strength to smile through future conversations and suppress every desire to bring it up again.  
 

Do you ever think about the amazing shit that could've happened?


I do and the shit haunts me.  What could've been, how far it could've gone and more importantly, what kind of profits would it have yielded?  What type of excellence could've been achieved if this absolutely talented person had the amount of integrity and the sense of urgency I thought they had.  Should I bring up the idea again and if I did, would they be receptive?  Did I do something to make them opt out of the collaboration before it could start?

Back when I owned and managed a studio, I would often offer colleagues legit opportunities to make money in the space using their talents.
 

 

These opportunities came with almost zero conditions and more importantly the only investments I was asking from them was time and sweat.  


I offered people chances to organize annual art showcases, weekly classes and even for them to operate and profit from the exclusive use of the studio.  In every case I only asked for the minority share of profits, each ended with an enthused handshake or verbal agreement.  Each time nothing came to fruition.  This not only made me lose a lot of faith in the friends I made while pursuing a career in the arts.  It made me lose faith in the art community at large.  But I still chose to never bring it up, to be unbothered, to not come off thirsty.  Playing it 'cool.'
 

Secretly telling myself I would never explore the possibility of collaboration with anyone else.


But I was wrong, when people flake on you, you need to address that shit.  'Remember when you said you would do this with me?'  Is a more than valid response to someone flaking on you.  Letting them know that they dissapointed you isn't 'extra.'  And rehashing the plans with them and making better arangements to make it happen in the near future isn't a bad idea either.   

-Earl 'Wolf' Davis

I found the sell of this painting to be such an inspiration. A reminder that the possibility to change history does not have an expiration date.

ROXANE GAY, BREAKING LITERARY BARRIERS

Sending submissions and getting zero traction from large platforms will destroy your professional morale as an artist. Roxane Gay really shows how perseverance as well as recognizing and fixing flaws can get those doors open.

MAKING MILLIONS FROM FORTNITE

Some trends come and go, leaving the people who invested in him with a shit load of impossible to sell product, wasted time and money. But some trends have incredible staying power and seemingly endless yields. Fortnite is one of those trends.

NASIR - THE FILM

This long-form music video disguised as a short film is really worth watching. The visuals have such a well-matched marriage with the source material. The very necessary subject matter is explored through beautifully moving imagery.

THE PSYCHIC'S TRAGIC PREDICTION

I'm usually on the fence about the authenticity of certain psychics and sometimes I even doubt the possibility of one having such an ability. However, this family's reading can make even the most stubborn skeptic reconsider.
