order cancellations

So I'm hearing privately about show order cancellations. I'm assuming it to be widespread. What says the street?

I won't really know much til August, but my new venue is now closed to the public. They're large enough to weather almost any storm. My main show in October attendance can be 100k+ a day, so... Either way I'm delaying production.

Not boomer remover like all the kids?

There's money in cremains, but it's kind of a pain. What's funny is when someone shows up with them for a BYO and don't understand when you tell them no.

Boomer remover. I like it...It has a snappy sort of ring to it. It makes me feel I can participate.

Some galleries that I have worked with for years are asking for extended payments. I know that they will pay and they have a better chance to sell it then setting in my shop.One order today but they are an online gallery only.

My daughter appears to be ill. She works for State in DC. She can't get tested.

No tests available here either. The wife's museum has several staff that have traveled internationally within the past month, now she's got a sore throat and slight cough, but that's apparently of "no concern". Thanks Anthem.

Just got the email that bullseye may be shutting down production.

Pray for your country instead. I absolutely despise that sentiment.

I think the sentiment was originally valid, and may still be, but it suffers from over- and mis-use. Especially when our legislators send it out to victims of violence instead of doing the hard work of mitigating the causes.
Sort of like "thank you for your service" and "sorry for your loss."
It is formulaic but it's reliable, and I'm assuming, heartfelt. Unlike "well, bless your heart."

Oh no, "well bless your heart" is ALWAYS a heartfelt sentiment. Always.

“Thoughts and prayers” in politician speak translates into - sucks to be you... sorry.

A 53% approval rating for the orange buffoon's response to the pandemic.

This just kicks my misanthropy into high gear. Let the dolphins and swans have the canals back.

Evidently it sucks to try and be kind.
