People are weird.

I know, that's not a groundbreaking piece of information, there, but it's just so very strange to me how obsessed people get about things...


...and then excuse them away as "a part of the creative soul that I am," since--see--without the drama, they wouldn't be able to be as brilliant, as artists. So it's a trade-off.

Mind you, I'm talking about myself here (or at least my younger self). Something really neat about being mid-30s-ish is that I now find it terribly entertaining (and a little sad) watching creative types self-destruct, blame failure on everyone outside of themselves, and then assure you they've got it all under control and will take the world by storm... next time.

I guess watching it is more fun than it was BEING that person, back in the day.

Ah, hell... maybe we're all just a bunch of delicate princess jaggoffs anyway.

Pff. Hollywood!

Stand-up comic, Marc Maron put it best. "You've heard it takes 10 years of hard work to be an overnight success? What they don't tell you is it takes just as long to become a bitter, jaded loser. Problem is, you don't know which way it's going to fall until right about....NOW!"
