"For the most part, this model assumes that you, the creative but unpaid laborer, have some private resources on which to draw while you do the work you love; in other words, it assumes some privilege and comfort."

You know what? I do a lot of random online things - some paid, some for free - and I've never even considered this. And I realize the reason I've never considered it is exactly because of the privilege and comfort you mention.

This was an EXCELLENT read.

On A Move-by-Move Divanalysis of Jacob Lusk's 'American Idol' Performance

Wow. I lost my shit when Luther Vandross died, but this guy seems like he could be the second coming! All he needs is an awesome songwriter.

On Not Calling Next Year ‘Twenty Eleven’ Will Be the End of Us All

J'accuse! As an aspiring quaintrelle, I'm given to a bit of hedonistic indulgence. The Year of Our Lord two-thousand-eleven it is!
