Απλά μαθηματικά.

ο brian από τους gang gang dance ξεστόμισε μερικές σοφές κουβέντες και με έβαλε σε πολλές σκέψεις. θα ήθελα τη γνώμη σας, ειλικρινά.


"i think it is extremely important for artists to constantly evolve and change and embrace modernity. I actually find it very offensive when people do not care to explore and evolve. Stagnation has no place in art for me, at least in the culture in which I am involved. I absolutely despise "one trick ponies" who drive themselves and everyone else into the ground with one branch of the creativity tree. That is why rock music is so dull nowadays. It relies on the past and it relies on haircuts, beards, and styles of dress as the meat of their existence. The 60's were forty years ago, the 70's were thirty years ago, the 80's were twenty years ago, the 90's were ten years ago, and 2004 was one year ago. What does not make sense about that equation? I just don't get it. I really, really don't. Music should evolve as culture itself evolves. But nowadays it seems to work in a very opposite way. I went to see a band a few weeks ago, a sold-out show. The band was a group of fairly young people and the entire show sounded like some Gloria Gaynor disco record and the audience was loving it. They were just eating it up and they were so happy that it all sounded so familiar, like the radio they heard when their dads drove them to kindergarten every morning. They laughed and clapped and danced and drank beer and not one single person had to put any effort in thinking about creativity in the here and now. Lazy people and their Sex and the City box sets are powerless and depressing. Then there are the Roy Lichtensteins. The ones who find one aesthetic that they know they can be financially successful with, and they do that for the rest of their lives. I don't know how they sleep at night. At the risk of sounding pompous, I must make it clear that GGD is not like this. Our favorite music doesn't exist yet."

I have a Sex and the City box set.
