We're living at the tail end of one of the biggest bursts of creativity in the history of mankind. The 20th century was one of the greatest times to live ever. If we want the 21st century to be even better, we need to WORK on making it great. We need to stop making excuses for amateurism and heartless, soulless, prepackaged, preprogrammed, predigested, canned culture. We need to stop taking the crap that gets handed to us by mainstream media and start supporting real live talented skilled performers of all types.
