I’M SENDING A NEWSLETTER, BLAH BLAH BLAH

6 Jul

… because our subscribers are so important or something. Whatever.

I just received the best newsletter ever from the Live Art Development Agency. Apart from the headlines it’s all in Lorem Ipsum copy. If you don’t know what this is already, Lorem Ipsum is pseudo-meaningful dummy text used to fill in space where the actual content is not available, or not necessary. It’s been around for hundreds of years; should you wish to send out your own totally pointless newsletter, you can find another good Lorem Ipsum generator here. All the links in ‘July News’ go to the same non-informative generic page as well.

Oh well, at least they’re being (sort of) honest about having nothing of any interest whatsoever to report. At the bottom it says “Copyright © 2013 Live Art Development Agency, All rights reserved”, so don’t rip off any of their precious non-content, OK?

    That’s live art for you. All titles and generic content.

      It’s actually a great idea to do gallery texts, press releases and artist statements in Lorem Ipsum… see if it even makes any difference to most people.

        I think a lot of folk already do – but they insist on using some poncey arts-speak version.

        There are automatic generators for artspeak, too… though I think the worst offenders all do it the hard and old fashioned way by actually writing it all out as if it means something.

        That’s the stuff. They want it to be all Derrida, but it just comes out Ipsum Lorem
