(Oregon artist satire of “organic living” yuppie)
I looked at the local newspaper, with the article “20 year long figure drawing class, for Eugene community members, destroyed by U. of O.fine Art Department head”. But the reasons in the article, for stopping the 20 year long free, Saturday afternoon, nude figure drawing class, for members of the Eugene community, at the University of Oregon,were pretty ridiculous.the head of the fine Art department gave these excuses;One was that “the people who came to draw, might just be voyeurs, wanting to see nude figures.” DUH! in a figure drawing class, how do you tell who is a voyeur, and who isn’t? If they draw very well, are they or are they not, voyeurs? Or are they there just to flirt with the model during her rest period?..
the other reason that the head of the fine Art Department gave, for ending that free Saturday class, was;” it was not safe for the model, to be nude there, strange and violent and overly sexual people could burst into the class” and the art department could not afford to put a guard on the drawing room.however,in the article, the members of the free art class, were quoted as saying, that there was never any trouble with security there, they never got attacked or invaded on Saturday, and there have never been any kind of action there but very quiet drawing. – Which is how drawing is supposed to be, quiet.
the newspaper article was trying to say, “why the heck did the University of Oregon fine Art Department head, end the class, for these ridiculous reasons that didn’t exist?” Well, there were a couple very possible reasons she did it. One, she was from the East Coast, and taught at very pricey (Yale) and expensive (fancy girl school) and was very FOREIGN to the Pacific Northwest. She was used to being among wealthy and well educated Easterners who went to school and who also taught.she apparently thought that all of Eugene’s residents, were “dangerous, primitive, out-of-control, and uncivilized villagers.” – And couldn’t be trusted on the University of Oregon campus. (And also, they weren’t registered and weren’t paying for their class.)
I mean, after all all the people in that class were COMMUNITY ARTISTS, and not really “certified – college-educated – middle-class and upper-middle-class, and wealthy –” students.some of them even had regular, low income jobs here.
OH, MY GOD! Low income artists! How God damn terrible!you know if you’re going to be an artist, you have to go to a very good,expensive school, and learn all the ways you’re supposed to be able to draw and paint, and all that bull shit.Heaven forbid you can’t afford it!– like all the present and future artists. Well, that was the way of the present and future; if you were low, or working-class, you were not going to be able to afford education, and if you are middle class or upper middle class, you had to borrow a lot of money.and then probably lose your house or everything you own, over it.
the head of the fine Art department, since she was used to teaching at Yale,, and from very structured ,socially and economically, back east, just took it for granted she can get rid of community artists, off her art campus, and they should go somewhere, for their level. LEVEL. Meaning, of course, “get thee to thy level!” But it was really discouraging to hear that the University of Oregon was getting more and more like a back east big time, discriminating and bigoted expensive University. Very discouraging.
.but that is a mark of our times; rigid, structured, social and financial classes. strictly enforced.one research poll that I read, said that it was no longer possible for people to move from low financial classes, or working classes, to higher classes with more position and more money. It just wasn’t possible anymore..I can see why that is; everybody in your financial and social class, all support each other, even for careers and jobs, and to get into schools. If you’re outside your desired class, you’re not going to get in.nowadays you have to be born into it.
(a very attractive and sexual outsider, could marry, or sleep his way into it,but that’s something else.)
It’s similar to, what us old seniors and baby boomers found out, when we tried to learn computers, late in life; all the youngsters were practically born into computer use, and education, and they were naturals with it.most of us would never catch up with them.
now, it’s very almost impossible, to break up that rigid, very structured social and financial class, and do anything about it. Get out of it; and into a better one. And people who yell about the “NWO”, rather the “new world order”, don’t have to look any further than stuff like, monopolies of cable TV; monopolies of every single company you can think of. Even monopolies of FOOD in supermarkets. MONOPOLIES in every single area of commerce; clothing, electronics,phone companies, computers, leadership, the Internet,spirituality (Catholic Church, we hear you!) No where are the monopolies of life, even in the United States, worse than our FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.members of Congress, and Senate, keep coming back like a bad virus. There’s no getting rid of them.
so when you stop and think of the above subject, several paragraphs above, about the low income community artists, who can’t pay to go and register at the University of Oregon, for nice expensive education, and get into the “monopoly”, and the “in crowd”, it doesn’t do you any good to worry about this little thing everybody’s obsessive about, called the “NWO”.whatever shape the “new world order”, is in , it’s not really a hysterical conspiracy theory.it’s real. It’s all around you, you can’t miss it.
in your area, there are only two ways to get on the Internet; Comcast and century link. Nothing else. There are dinky little,one person Internet servers, which hardly anybody uses if they can help it. And if you want to watch TV, you either have to get a satellite dish, or you have to get Comcast cable TV. And if your trees are too tall, or for some other reason you can’t get a satellite dish, you’re stuck with ONE cable TV company. The master! The monopoly master! and believe me, the PRICES they charge, are of a monopoly. I frankly, stopped watching all TV shows, they are so bad. The only thing I watch are MOVIES. And I refuse to get the higher up superduper, movie and TV channels, because I already did that, I got one or two secondary movie channels, and I’m still bored to tears most of the time. So getting higher up ones, and paying more and more and more and more, won’t do me any good. Most of the time, the only thing on TV is bad TV shows, and old TV movies they show over and over.those few extra movie channels, are mostly what I watch. Otherwise, I wouldn’t bother with TV at all.
.AND, they are soon going to get rid of BROADCAST TV! EVERYTHING will be on cable or on the Internet.
Go read a book.
I’m not worrying very much about “NWO” mysteries or conspiracies. I know who they all are anyway. I see them every day! I have to deal with them every day, and get clobbered by them every day. And PAY TAXES to them every day!and have to deal with MICROSOFT, MACINTOSH, et al.MONOPOLIES every day. You want to talk about a monopoly? the AMA!one of the biggest baddest monopolies. One you can’t deny, and you can’t get around. If you want to be a doctor or a medical person, the only other thing is, “osteopath school, or chiropractic school.” (The latter one, I highly recommend and use myself.)
let’s suppose for a moment, before we end this article, that you have very very bad FEET. You’ve got very bad arthritis, you’ve got plantar fasciitis, your bones are bad off, your feet are old, but also there is no such thing in the United states, except for PODIATRISTS for bad feet. And you know what they do? Nothing. They cut toenails. That’s what they do! So if you have very bad feet, with a number of serious things wrong with them, in the United States, YOU ARE OUT OF LUCK.
Unless you are fabulously wealthy, and can go to other countries, and very specialized expensive doctors, who actually treat really bad feet, and only accept CASH MONEY, you are SCREWED! that’s because no insurance you can get, for a regular normal person, even working, has any kind of decent really good “expert feet Dr.s” who know how to treat very difficult, painful, FEET problems.
those are the results off our very socially and financially, structured classes, now. Monopolies; no medical treatment, unless you’re fabulously wealthy.(the rest of us get very bad HMOs, welfare charity clinics, and no treatment at all, on Medicare, Medicaid, Obama care. That’s because, as I mentioned above, you are out of luck. You’re not going to get it!)
So,, stop worrying about “the new world order”. It’s just the same old, “everyone is a PEON, poor person, on the bottom, which includes most of us, and our masters are that small, little, rich and financially angelic upper-class.”– – except that it’s worldwide. yes, it’s the same old ballgame; unless you’re one of the lucky rich and wealthy and powerful people, you’re POOR. Not much middle class.. Stop pretending that socialism is going to get you what you want and need. IT IS NOT.Socialism is pretty much a FAKE. And whatever they used to call, DEMOCRACY, that’s over, too. It was a short, one time situation, and now it’s gone.
there’s your “NWO”; if you want to watch old movies, they are all owned by Ted Turner, and you have to pay for his channel on TV, to get them. And if you want cable TV at all, there’s only one choice, Comcast. There, in a nutshell, is our NWO. It’s not invisible, it’s seething around you every day, and you’re stuck in it. So stop worrying and obsessing over it. It’s just the same old bull shit, it’s always been for thousands of years.it’s just under a new name.
(Sandraminadotty, in Eugene, OR, wondering whether or not I should run for Congress, or Senate, by issuing a huge campaign of BULL-SHIT, mucking-up to every powerful, political group, raising millions of bucks, and doing it all THE AMERICAN WAY!! “THANK YOU, MRS. CLINTON, FOR BEING MY INSPIRATION!!!” (worship, worship) 🙂
