Things That Annoy Me, Parts 1 and 2

ArtsJournal started my morning off by reminding me of two things that make me ornery. Really ornery.

Painting is Dead. Long Live Painting.
Yes, painting is dead. It doesn't have the monolithic hold on artistic production and critical discussion that it had during the first half of the twentieth century.

No, painting is alive and well. People are still making fabulous paintings, and a few artists have revivified the medium in the last decade.

Can't we, please, move beyond this hackneyed discussion now. (Why Painting Is Back in the Frame)

Service Charges on Ticket Purchases.
When I make the decision to spend a certain amount of money on a ticket to a performance, I really don't like being told that the ticket will actually cost me 1.3 times that price because of an additional fee for a service that adds no value to my experience of the performance. I really don't like this. Not one bit. (Fees Mount for DIY Ticket-Buying)
