Trying to make itPosted: August 24, 2010
what exactly are you trying to make? money? overnight fame? to be the next Specials? the next Lady Sovereign? Another Dubstep producer? the new indie sensation? are you hoping to suddenly be DISCOVERED?
What if all the energy spent trying to make it went into being outstanding, original or brutally different?
Would that attract attention, an audience? Would it stand out more than some one shouting about themselves but having nothing new or exciting to offer?
how did they do it, the legends and stars of our time? Did they imitate? and then scream about how good they were? were they discovered, an overnight success?
or did they innovate and attract attention and build a business from scratch, increasing their fan-base over time and dripping their way to success?
WE ARE CONSTANTLY UP AGAINST SHIT THAT MONEY HAS BEEN THROWN AT TO MAKE IT AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS…
hence so much dodgy music around at the moment, with no real stars, just hyped up losers that doesn’t make history, and this kills the innovation and creativity of our time…
Keep on keeping on. be yourself. push the boundaries in being different. Fuck them.
Here Seth Godin sums it up:
