There's an essay? I just see people whinging about the tweet

Yeah like I know this completely goes against the spirit of people having a good solid public lynching but he did have a tweet below it:



In case he has to delete it his tweet says: I agree with Oscar Wilde who originally made this observation. I do not say it to be provocative. Argue with Oscar. Read his “The Critic as Artist”.

I read it in college but that was half a lifetime ago and I can't remember any of it, probably should dig it out again.

God who cares. The role of the artist is to make money for the Disney Corporation, the role of the critic is to get retweets and death threats.

The role of the critic is copypaste PR blurbs in exchange for free seats at the expense of the art that they live off but dont make.

This is true.

and the role of the artist is to regurgitate the same old tired crap in ever less metaphorical ways and then cry that they aren't being recognized as the new Flann O'Brien.

Congratulations!! A sci-fi version of Weekend At Bernie's?
Yes. Bernie dies of a psychic brain parasite which transfers his consciousness to Andrew McCarthy's mind. AC must cart Bernie's decomposing body around as he investigates a conspiracy involving Greek neo-fascists and blockchain
