Disturbance in the arts festival force.

By johnboy 17 September 2008 28

The luvvies are outraged (OUTRAGED I TELLS YOU) by the pressures which have forced uber-luvvie Dominic Mico to resign from whatever it is he actually does at great expense to the public purse.

Canberra Arts Marketing is leading the charge and Jorian Gardner has sent out an email with enraged block cap liftout quotes such as this:

    “IF THE ACT GOVERNMENT WANTS FRINGE TO DELIVER THE MAIN PART OF THE NMF ARTS PROGRAM THEN MINISTER HARGREAVES AND THE ACT GOVERNMENT HAVE TO GET SERIOUS AND COUGH UP THE EXTRA FUNDS.” – Jorian Gardner

    “WHAT MAJOR FESTIVAL REFERS TO ITS OWN ARTS PROGRAM AS ‘STUFF?’ (today’s Canb Times. THIS IS NUTS!” – Jorian Gardner [unclosed bracket as received]

Anyone else want to join in the sound and the fury?

The problem is, most people are interested in multiculturalism to the extent that they can eat or drink it. And … that’s fair enough too! There’s only so much belly-dancing one man can stand…

And the “community involvement that runs the festival” doesn’t really seem to reflect any type of arts community that I recognise at any time of the year that isn’t the muticulti fest… it seems to be a lot of blow-ins and try-hards.

Jorian is right this time though – if the govt person who is being paid to look after the arts festival is saying something like: ‘we’ll still have the arts stuff, but the community can provide it themselves while we concentrate on the food festival’ then I would be annoyed too.

Bring back Mr Mico – at least he cares about the arts. Who do they think fostered all this community involvement that they are relying on to run the festival for them?

Why the —- does the Canberra City Council have something with a name as boring as the “National Multicultural Festival”. With a title like that it is absolutely guaranteed to be drab, dull and petrifyingly PC.

And this “national” tag that gets attached to everything in this dump. It’s surprising Mooseheads hasn’t rechristened itself as the National Drunken Assault Centre.

That’s the Lighthouse.

How about the Australian Revellers Seeking Entertainment, Billious And Noisy Drunken Inebriation Togetherness Society(ARSEBANDITS) or maybe Providers Of Rowdy Carnal Entertainment and Revelry (PORCERs).

Because sport actually requires training, discipline, and is an intense drain on body and mind. Arts requires half a BA, a damaged liver, and the ability to wank on about how the government should pay you to sit on your couch and think.

what??!!. you can’t tell me we should be paying the two brain cell tod carneys of the world any more than they have? shall we start a list of the stupid, alcohol / drug fueled public incidents that have involved sports people? theyre no more deserving than anybody else.

Pay them all nothing and put some money in the f*cking hospital where theyre gaffa taping things back together.

As for Jorian, come back when youre a big boy who can construct sentences and turn the caps lock key off. Just because youre argument is louder doesn’t mean its better.
