Arts Admin. Hey Girl, It’s The Sexy Career Choice

In case you’ve been stuck under an office rock the past few months and have been missing out on Ryan Gosling, Arts Administrator then we need to get you an appletini and some trendy new threads stat. If you’re not up on the whole Ryan Gosling “Hey Girl” thing, it’s a Tumblr meme that started with one guy and snowballed into a host of derivatives, even arts administration.

Let’s hope that isn’t the meme’s jumping the shark moment because most of the posts are pretty damned funny in the sort of “you have to work in this business to get it” sort of way.

Some of my Feb favs (so far) include…

    Hey, girl! The reason you have to wait overnight to get “subscriber” status? We’re running Tessitura on a hamster-powered XT system (8 mHz!) that we keep under MTT’s desk. The Second Century fundraising might let us upgrade to a puppy-powered Pentium under someone else’s desk.

      Hey Girl. I got employer matching so now you can put it under two desks.

    Hey, girl! Why did we schedule Youth Concerts during the week of Spring Break? Because we know how awesome you are and that you can get kids to attend school concerts anytime of the year – just get out that magic wand.

      Love it, I don’t think they’ve had any youth Orchestra gags yet so you should submit it at the main website.

    Will do. But it’s about concerts for young people, not youth orchestras. Nonetheless, I doubt anyone has submitted either yet.
