Letter from Selfless Sam Beck

Mail Bag

hey – are you planning to write about art at all on here? [robot: no, we chose the name Portland City Art to intentionally mislead our readers…]

i’ve been thinking that there should be reviews somewhere (the internet seems like a decent place) that just spell out explicitly which shows totally suck. you know, so you don’t have to go to them. maybe some kind of chart – either “this show sucks” or possibly a brief review if the show is worth seeing. if you’re planning to have reviews on here, i’d be interested in writing, but if not i think the chart would be a useful resource, and i’d be happy to cast votes. or make the whole thing – it wouldn’t take very much work. [robot: great ideas, Sam. while you’re at it, why don’t you make a chart that tells us which Portland curator is the most fun to suck?]

you know, for the community. [robot: are you sure you live in Portland? the community loathes honesty!]

let me know if you’re at all interested. i like what’s up there so far –
especially the robot. i really think art needs an authoritarian robot to
do some regulating. [robot: forget what I said before, you’re hired!]

– sam beck
