145 – How To Become Middle Class
/

Participation trophy caucus of A+L (OK and Sarah) discuss How To with John Wilson’s first episode of their new season, “How to Invest in Real Estate”. We truly love John Wilson, he’s our generation’s neurotic New York white guy, but not a scumbag. As we pray for his career to continue to flourish, let’s do some critical thinking: How do artists balance the necessary self-delusion to create good work with the equally urgent need of insisting on collective solutions to the everyday problems we encounter? Can we give brilliant work the critique it deserves? How could you say no to Mama? How could you see a missing option if you don’t know it exists? OK gets triggered, Sarah reveals her newest psycho theory of mind, and we both sit comfortably in our armchairs smoking cigars while everyone else throws bricks in the streets.

Beautiful Bay Area babes Sam Lefebvre and Lor came to town and we had us a glorious struggle session about, what else, the precarious and confusing class positioning of artists. Plus, what should artworkers and activists demand wrt public control of museum endowments and governance? Also, rent boards are HR for land antagonisms for real!!! We even debate post-capitalist horizons and if it’s possible to dissolve the secondary markets. Did I mention Lor is assisting cyborg feminist hero Lynn Hershman Leeson??

Listen to the full episode on our Patreon here. Invest in these controversial opinions for the highest clout return on your Substack!! OK, Darcie, and Sarah take another swirl around the media cesspool and discuss the propaganda around the Amazon unionization effort. Lefty media is seemingly divided on appealing to either democrats or republicans, which ignores migrant workers, prisoners, and the global south who obviously cannot vote in US elections. There’s an eternal culture war on the twitter busybox, how can we break free?
