QUOTED: Guy Maddin’s Facebook rant about comped tickets
When you execute a painting or sculpture do I ask if I can have it? When you mount an opera, write a book or make a meal in a restaurant do I come a-weasling for freebs? If $11 a head is too much for you then go panhandle in front of the Bell Lightbox, or better yet, take your fault-finding face and stay home. That’s where I’ll be.
