Amanda Palmer Quote

“There’s no “correct path” to becoming a real artist. You might think you’ll gain legitimacy by going to art school, getting published, getting signed to a record label. But it’s all bullshit, and it’s all in your head. You’re an artist when you say you are. And you’re a good artist when you make somebody else experience or feel something deep or unexpected.”-Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking: or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help

Off Topic Post: Composers

I’ve been listening to a lot of music by Erik Satie, Arnold Schoenberg, and Benjamin Britten.
