Jane Ditty Returns: An Imaginary Twitter Conversation
By Adrienne Ferrari

Name Jane Ditty

Bio A fit and fortyish fantasist laid off from my job at Pipeline Partners, LLC and while I do not dress to the nines, I do dress well. I, also, pride myself on my politeness. If people are nice to me then I am always nice to them in return. I use my time between internet crawls and job searches tweeting out an imaginarium of scenarios. Where I ask myself what if like if(x)then(y)or(z) and then my hopes, my fears, my dreams.

Location The lobby of my imagination, where I can play myself as a star of stage or multiple screens. I can take me out to the ball game or take me out to the gym. Today, yoga will do. Hmm, I wonder? What is the tally for transformation?
What’s happening? Today, I think workout but imagine myself a museum.

Extra, Extra! Tweet all about it! The LACMA Revolution continues! Find your phones and grab your towels. It’s about to get hot.

LACMA
Everyone! Ujjayi breathing now! In and out, slow and steady. That’s right. Refocus and remain calm. Yoga is revelation not revolution.–JD

@LACMA Revelation? Try transformation. Yoga is for the strong not the weak. Just look at Madonna’s arms.
2:06 PM Jun 19

LACMA
ANNOUNCEMENT – LACMA appoints OmShanti as Director of Transformation. After all, where is there no pain. There is no gain.–JD

Culturecupcake
Tweet Flash! LACMA in a fever! OmShanti made Director of Transformation. What next? Director of Day Dreaming?
2:12 PM Jun 19

BuzzkillJones
Director of Transformation? Sheesh, just bring on the lotus flowers, why don’t you? What happened to art? You know A-R-T, ART.
2:13 PM Jun 19

LACMA
Ooh, thanks @Culturecupcake. RT @Culturecupcake Director of Day Dreaming. I like that. Maybe, next time?–JD
2:14 PM Jun 19

DayLAC
RT@ LACMA Director of Dreaming? What? Snap to @LACMA! This is LA. What about cynical one-liners? What about the readymade?
2:17 PM Jun 19

PetelikesPink
@DayLAC Wow, maybe you and Buzzkill should go on a date together. What a couple of Debbie Downers.
2:18 PM Jun 19

LACMA

BuzzkillJones
@LACMA It’s too hard, it’s too hard. I can’t do it. I’m melting, I’m melting.
2:26 PM Jun 19

HEALTHYHULK
ENOUGH TALK! MORE SWEAT! ART AND HEALTH TOO MUCH SAME PROBLEM! TOO MUCH THINK! NOT ENOUGH DO!
2:28 PM Jun 19

PetelikesPink
@ HEALTHY HULK TOO MUCH THINK? What about quality versus quantity? What about Duchamp? What about ideas and not mere visual products?
2:30 PM Jun 19

OmShanti
What about if instead of moving our lips? We move our breath and then our minds?
2:30 PM Jun 19

DayLAC
The revolution sweats? Is the pursuit of chess a lost cause? Should art start getting physical and stop getting smart?
2:34 PM Jun 19

LACMA
@DayLAC YES! YES! YES!  Art should be more like a workout than a chess match. It should take one out of their head not trap them in it.–JD
2:36 PM Jun 19

LACMA
@DayLAC More like in the service of Sporting Images and less like The Pure Beauty of Figure and Landscape.–JD
2:36 PM Jun 19

LACMA
@DayLAC Hot topics, literal not topics that get hot, metonymical.–JD
2:36 PM Jun 19

BuzzkillJones
@LACMA So, what are you suggesting? That all I have to do is sweat?
2:38 PM Jun 19

OmShanti
@BuzzkillJones Well . . .Yoga and Art are both practices and you know how to get to Carnegie Hall, don’t you?
2:41 PM Jun 19

Culturecupcake
Is practice, practice, practice the new hot, hot, hot? What happened to whimsy and caprice? What happened to fun and really cool sunglasses?
2:44 PM Jun 19

PetelikesPink:
Umm, hello! Animal crackers? Ongoing Transformation? Crispy Pata? Live Jazz? Cell Phone Stories? Is a little sweat equity too much to ask?
2:45 PM Jun 19

Until Next Time
