Serious Fun and Other Madness For The Arts

Original Source Of The Shakespeare-X Message..


These are articles of particular interest to people in the arts.

Some are Serious and some are Madness and there will probably be more articles to come in time.

Particularly if the Salon discussions begin to reveal obsession with particular subjects. Also the Google Waves. And life in general too, if anything important happens out there in the arts. I hear someone got a message from William Shakespeare, so that may shake things up among the culturati for a while..

Generally the Serious articles cover writing, the art market, art and ownership, copyright fraud, publishing industry, literary criticism, the creative personality, genius grants, Art, art v entertainment, modernism v postmodernism, the Modernist Renaissance, etc etc. Later more articles will come on the visual arts.

The madness articles are just plain flashes of madness. For laughing, despite the angst of it all.

The Serious Fun Pages are more serious. But also fun.

Probably the best way to explore the articles is to simply keep clicking Next Page below right until you find something you like.

Otherwise just click in anywhere that interests you on the list below.



Take A Spin


The articles below form a circuit of pages.

Yes Lee, I'd like to take a spin through the Arts Serious Fun articles in a circuit leading somewhere. Probably back here.

Take me, I'm yours! It's a dull evening where I am anyhow.


No Lee, I'm not in a serious mood, take me instead to send a witty email to lots of global corporations telling them to Sponsor Shakespeare-X Now!
