Fuck you, cunt, riding your $2000 bike in the sun while I work my arse off. I have no problem with the welfare system and am happy to support it. Cunts like you should get off the grid 100 percent and live how you want to, independently, and die if your crops fail with no support from us.

Sounds like you could use a break, Welfare - take a break. you deserve it.

Fuck you.

You speak out against capitalism but live like a feudal lord.

You align yourself with the worker but you drink the blod of the worker.

Fuck you.

worker said...

I have an idea for your next "artwork". Get a job, and spend all the money you make on food to make meals with. Make some meals and put them outside your neighbors' doors every evening, whether they eat them or not, whether or not they are grateful. Until one comes out and says, "I can't be bothered cooking anymore, give me what I deserve, what is rightfully mine. Now go back to work, I fell like taking another break."

so you tell me said...

Nothing like a Happy Bene to upset the self-righteous.

Worker: apply for a grant, sounds like a nice work.

worker said...

To apply for a grant you need a name in the art world.
The art world is much like any other capitalist super-structure and operates on the same principles. In fact it lays those principles--authority from fame, network marketing--bare.

I can make art but it is not recognized as such until it and its creator's name are in the gallery system.

The art world is a pyramid scheme of false priests. Why would I want to be a part of that?

I'm not a savvy enough capitalist to exist on clever marketing within such a system.

Again, fuck you, I'll leave it to you to apply for grants--i.e, suck the blood of the workers via luxury art institutions build with the labour of the workers.

so you tell me said...

you talk tough, but do you walk the talk?

worker said...

You're just a psychopath who has found his niche. You don't give a shit about anyone else but yourself.

so you tell me said...

You sound like you are in real pain. Talk to me about the issues with out the abuse and perhaps I could learn what I'm missing.

worker said...

pissed wanker. You are much, much worse than the people you are critical of. Keep playing the game, loving the camera. Watch the grants flow in. Drink yourself to death. What a clique. What a lazy, hypocritical, pissed wanker.

so you tell me said...

Jealous much..

worker said...

Jealous of you? Jealous of a guy who lives off the back of the workers' labour, and spends his time bemoaning capitalism? I don't think so, scumbag.

You don't get my point at all, do you?

I'll be coming to have a chat with you for sure, mate.

See you on Manners street. We'll have a good old chat. Might walk the talk as well.

so you tell me said...

Thanks, looking forward to meeting you.

i dont understand why you cant make a living out of your artwork and you milk the system you hate because you can.if we all shared your world view there wouldnt be a welfare system to support you,you would be on your arse not working but with no money. i fell its a real slap in the face to hard working NZ what your doing.I worked my arse off 7 days a week for 8 months and now im goin to argentina to learn spanish for 6 months and i myself too like yourself willprobaly be unemployed but ive saved enough money so i can support my self.i guess the whole issue is about sustainablity and you are unsustainble. alot of artist manage to make a living off there craft and if they cant its called a hobby and they have a job to support themselves.You can only have a welfare system if enough people are working if everyone quit there job as you proposed how would people get any money for there benefits asshole
