Crowd source the video. Offer a thousand bucks to anyone who can make a video about Madison as a contest. To pay someone 50 grand to make a video about this town is fucking stupid. Look at YouTube and see the thousands of people, including kids, who are making awesome looking shit. The Mayor needs to get out of the 70's.

Or let someone who wants to make a video just make a danged video. If they have a good idea they can apply for an arts grant like anyone else with a good idea, video or not.

The key to good art is not having a bunch of non-artists decide what kind of art they want based on something they saw on the internet.

I laughed when someone pointed out that a Bucky-themed Gangnam Style video already existed.

The good news is that Karin Wolf (MAC) knows which side is up, so I think if the Mayor and the Council are serious about helping the music scene she'll be able to direct the effort in a useful way. But Soglin needs to get the message that the most important thing the city can do is not try to push something top-down. Yeesh.

That money could really help some people that are homeless have a warm place.

Also help some of them get treatment for their drug and alcohol problems.

Maybe also we could start a candy factory so we would have more jobs here.
