I wrote this article in response to an another article that Molly C. brought to my attention regarding why young artists are leaving Atlanta. Maybe I’m being a little too quick to criticize, but geez, what a bunch of whiners.
I have to say I’m particularly proud of my rebuttal on the Zombie Cat website… here’s a little bit of a teaser:
“…Being a successful artist is just like being successful in any other career choice or professional calling that one might choose to follow. It usually (and by usually, I mean always) takes a long, long time. A lifetime for some. … for the most part, it’s not the city’s fault if you don’t “hit it big.” Look within yourself, people.”
You know you totally wanna go read it.
