Chris Rock on why you’re too distracted.
Chris Rock in Rolling Stone on what’s wrong with music right now:
“Music kind of sucks. Nobody’s into being a musician. Everybody’s getting their mogul on. You’ve been so infiltrated by this corporate mentality that all the time you’d spend getting great songs together, you’re busy doing nine other things that have nothing to do with art. You know how sucky Stevie Wonder’s songs would have been if he had to run a &*^%#$’ clothing company and a cologne line?”
1. Is there anything you have a single minded devotion to?
2. How do you stay focused on the things that matter to you?
3. Have we collectively decided on a good name for people that develop really massive thumbs from all that blackberry typing? Is it too early or too late to suggest “Thumbeliah” or maybe the longer but equally average “guy with really massive thumbs?”
