It’s a good thing I’m at retirement age, because I just saw an article today titled “10 Things You Can Do to Boost Your Resumé, and not only am I so entirely lacking in expertise that I didn’t understand any of the 10, 8 of them were things I had no idea what they meant. All computer stuff. So, I’m really glad I’m not 20 years old and trying to get into the job market.
Bernie’s going to speak at a Women’s Conference, and a lot of the attendees are angry. Of course, they are angry with Bernie because they feel he caused Hillary’s loss, and they might be right. When he stood against her on the debate stage, a lot of people saw what a Democrat should sound like, and it wasn’t her. Anyway, I’m glad it’s going to happen. He’s a persuasive speaker – not dramatic, not flashy – and maybe he’ll bring some of them around.
Went out to see a bit of the Signal Festival this evening and, just as in year’s past, it was kind of a yawn. Putting Christmas lights on some scaffolding, covering the whole thing with a heavy plastic tarp, and playing some weird music, does not make a work of art. Well, maybe it does, if you’re using one of those definitions of art like “anything the artist says is art is art” or “art is anything that has never been seen before,” or something vague like that. But, it’s bad art.
We only saw four or five of the installations, so it’s quite possible, out of the large numbers of them spread out all over the city, that there are some good ones. It’s also possible that there aren’t.
