    Well, I'll be damned. I have been going about this artistic creativity thing all wrong. The people demand NOTHING!.

    At my next gig, we shall sit in the audience and not set up, not play, not make a peep. I wonder how 'mysterious' and 'cerebral' the local arts rag will cover my new act? I see a bright future with this act.

    Some artists get bigged up by people in the art world who have influence then idiots with more money than sense fall over themselves to buy pieces
    Watch the episode of the Simpsons were Homer tries to build a barbeque

    I'm of the firm belief that attitude is a very large part of what constitutes art.

    I bought a cd from a street musician on the Venice boardwalk once. When I got it home, it was just a blank cd. He should have charged more, apparently.
