For A Living Artist

Some tool called Beeple sold a jpeg for $70 million last week thus making him the third-highest-paid artist alive.

You have to be rather oblivious to the contours of modern life to pay $70 million for a piece of art made by someone who is still alive. If I were Beeple, I would contact the person who bought the jpeg and make an offer like, “Give me another $25 million or I’ll go and get myself cancelled, in which case your original investment will be worthless.”
