Yes Eric , it is any individual's fault for
How they act. You can preach product of environment as much as you want, if someone wants to be better they can be.
And what a judgmental asshole right? How could he know so much about a person after ten mins of video? Because that ten minutes was incredibly telling. That woman is not fit to be a mother , period. Watch it again a few times until you can see that.
Also, knocking off and counterfeiting is both wrong. Whoever said the music industry enforces copyrights, they try. But we get fucked. Everyone steals what they can, and it hurts more than you know. Copyright infringement is wrong. Spend 99 cents on a song, you spend five on a coffee. As if all artists are jay z gaga level, and as if engineers don't need to pay bills either.

What a terrible euphemism: "peculiar authenticity"
Again with the Millennial bashing? Really?
Get off our backs, elsavio !
This stuff is not as clear-cut as you make it out to be.
Did you guys even read the story? or are you utterly dense? Clearly, "bitter" refers to Patterson Hood's "duality of the southern thing," i.e. loving a place and its people but still being critical of many aspects of the culture, e.g. the still-pervading racism, ignorance, and stupidity of would-be neo-Confederates. Is it really all that difficult to understand?
His picture looks like Roseanne Barr's ex, Tom Arnold.
Maybe they’re "bitter" because some white southerners are still bitter about losing the War.
What the South needs more of: purple prose written by upper-middle-class white people.
JR, it's probably partly a pun...since they started out writing about cocktails.
I have no damned idea what you're talking about. Do you?
Farcical white guilt is always a guaranteed sell.
I like the idea and the little I saw of the site but why the word bitter?
I wonder why PBR didn't accept his submission...
Not a fan of his type of artwork/craftsmanship in the size of a mural but t-shirts and paintings work. He probably made a killing selling those paintings in BK...to those hipsters and brand nubians. Nothing like being a "different" black artist to market yourself...
Sam Flax does donate some materials, and they receive a small thank you in LW press materials for it— along side a couple dozen other local businesses.
To my knowledge, LW has received zero dollars of tax money in the form of grants or any other payment.
I don't know about flax's relationship with the OCA, cant find any mention of it on the internets, but I can tell you that projects like livingwalls and dodekapus can't happen without the ardent support of people like Lionel.
i'm sorry that living walls didn't accept your mural proposal, photon.
get better and try again next year.
@zedsmith- Maybe you should get sponsored by your local charter junior high school as you have poor reading comprehension skills. Hey moron, sponsoring also means donating materials, which is done in exchange for marketing and advertising purposes and to increase revenue of the sponsor. That you are A-OK with one of the directors of a so-called non-profit who works directly with an Atlanta government agency (this time in the guise of "cultural affairs") and who receive tax funded grants also benefiting his personal business thanks to this endeavor shows your lack of understanding of ethics. I am personally not comfortable with this and makes me doubt the sincerity of a program like Living Walls. Don't get me wrong, artists, art workers, and business owners have every right to profit handsomely, but using your position on the board of directors at an arts non-profit to covertly benefit your for-profit business is kinda tacky. This is just a small issue within all of the ones I see with the LW "concepts." Shit like this is the same reason why an organization like Eyedrum is in the skids. Receiving a 10,000 grant and there's nothing to show for it, and their credibility is lost, thanks in no small part to the idiots seating on the board who use their position to benefit themselves, stroke the ego of the alcoholism addled Woody Cornell and creating drama instead of creating a credible art programming. This is where I see LW heading in the future.
sponsors actually means they spend money, not receive money— maybe you should look into getting sponsored by merriam-webster.
@zedsmith- SOME at Living Walls are profiting. That they have volunteers has nothing to do with this. Hey man, people in this town will throw fundraisers and donate to the cause of private for-profit businesses all the time, so why would this be a surprise? One of the sponsors for the event? Sam Flax, purveyors of the famous Montana aerosol spray favored by street artists both genuine and wannabes around the nation. Guess who is one of the directors of this years LW?
