RE: Great quote about progress in creativity
Wow Rick ... thats my favorite quote ... honestly ... I heard it on a movie when I was a kid (little man tate) ... my second favorite is by the same guy:
Geoarge Bernhard Shaw said one day "I hate that man" ...
"but you don't know that man" I replied ...
"well of course ..... how could I possibly hate any man I knew?" replied George.
I don't know who wrote that one down .. but that is my other favorite shaw quote.
can we talk about the music industry sa-more ....
Perhaps we are heading back to the barn dance days .... when musicians had no real conception of "making it" ... if you did really well you might get to play for the rest of your tiny village ...... how bout that ??
Who was ever in this for money .... just play music and enjoy it .... the bills WILL pile up .... just get used to it .... smoke a lil' more and don't sweat it ...... there is no need to make money ... you have enough already .... hehehe.
There ... thats my 2 cent brainwashing ....... how 'bout it ?
