Art, Profitable Pretentiousness, and the Emperor's New Clothes

"Do you ever feel that there is a twilight world full of people who have the Midas touch, who can turn any crazy idea into a money making machine - people who operate and think so differently to yourself as they get about in the jet set gilt clad world, that they may as well be from another planet? I've peered into this world as they conjure up riches out of thin air (or from absolute crappy ideas), and I just scratch my head and wonder how they manage it...."

This post is a bit more strongly-worded than I'd have written a critique on the artsy set's preference for doo-doo and splattered paint over creative work, but I agree.

I've posted about this psychological quirk before: "Do People Understand Your Poems? Does Your Poetry Make Sense? Now You Can Fix That!" (March 21, 2008).
