well and I also think there’s more to it than just the hipster thing. There’s real vitriol. People get craycray over shit.
Definitely. It’s less of a specific subculture thing and more just…the way people are now. I would love to investigate why. But without sounding too much like a self-important artiste moaning, “Oh, I suffer,” this whatever-this-is, this spirit of the way people consume art now, does make things harder. I know a lot of talented people who don’t bother to do anything because they don’t think it’s worth it unless their stuff will be genius or something that’s never been done before. Which is sad. You can be a not-genius and still have something compelling to say. I do think there’s a certain amount of toughness you should be expected to achieve, but the vitriol is just counterproductive for everyone.
