As a persona notorious at this point its obvious I am unpopular around here...
but more than that I am unapologetic and not part of any groups around here either.
Its preferential not to be grouped into a category with others such that you are dictated to on what opinions you are allowed to have in order to 'fit in'.. I don't.
I'm OK with not fitting in. I'm not running for political office, holding down a university job, or begging for grant money for an NGO or non-profit, I'm indie.

Further thoughts on Sappyfestival that takes a lot of grant money from the government agencies to operate here. They are far from indie .. they are heavily subsidized and they are also 'agenda' driven with a political and social justice component that has taken the joy out of what was once a local fun time for the youth and the talent that lives here and makes a life here.. last year was particularly noticeable in that it was featuring people with zero connection to this region.. if the local government continues to give them money when they do not support the artists here and promote the artists here I don't see how that is even remotely fair. I take issue with the organizers. They are aware of my point of view now.
