an exerpt from "The Mindscape of Alan Moore"

"Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer certainly was a tremendous risk.
It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark.
But anything of value in our lives- whether it be a career, a work of art, a relationship- will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding. You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire.
Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever undertake."

Henry Rollins on "selling out"

I stumbled upon this short treat from the ever-so opinionated Rollins. In a short flash of fire, he distinguishes between a band "selling out" and a band simply getting their due after years of making little to no money.

It amuses me and inspires me to get some paycheques in exchange for my music!
