[ Note that this entry originated » here. ]
I think that I might write an entry about that first one, where I simply respond to some of the comments made in that video.
I would title this entry something like » Feeling Less Fucked-Up. That would make a cool title .. you must admit.
Many interesting statements were made in that video, but I would probably start with the one made by David Byrne [ at t=1:35 ] where he says:
Although some of them maybe have the ambition to be the next [ big thing ], the number of those artists are very, very small. And often, the artists who are very successful in that way .. they dont have much flexibility.
In achieving success, they lose a lot of their creative freedom. They have to keep making the same thing, more or less, over and over and over again.
And if the musician or artist values their freedom and the ability to be creative, then they maybe have to realize that they won't be making hundreds of million of dollars. They might be making less money .. but they might have more artistic satisfaction.
