everything is so awesome here

I don't think I've ever read critical press about anything 'artistic' in this city- local music, film, exhibits, books, etc...Outside of politics, critical reviews are inexplicably reserved for food columns here. This has an uneasy leveling effect- every kid gets an MVP medal in Halifax. It can't all be great just because it's local, can it? Who is this attitude serving? I appreciate a reviewer who can inform as well as give a measured, informed opinion- build a consistent relationship with your audience, let bias be known, essentially show yourself and opine vs. fact reporting and the generic east coast gold star. I know we're small and mildly incestuous here on the peninsula-everyone knows everyone in the arts and press eventually- but please, dig in a little more for everybody's sake. —shitty artist
