the programing is in place. the artist feels they must submit to survive and that servitude takes the power of change right out of the art, it drains the magic that unrestrained, unrepentant creativity holds.
or maybe it’s the creator and not the corporation who restricts and restrains their own creation for those who can afford it, who can pay for it… maybe art has always been free, maybe that’s arts natural state, to fly free.
regardless, deep down inside I feel there is something very wrong with a scion sponsoring the underground and counter-culture – I will always hate scion sponsored crap. maybe it shows my age. dinosaur.
I just got word in from scion… they will distribute our new book and in return we’ll be able to tour with the melvins… as part of the wash and detail the rock-stars car crew, we’ll have to move to oklahoma after to work at the scion dealership there, but we have a choice, work for scion or be thrown out of a helicopter over the pacific… ok, the scion drone is here, I have to go check the neighbors oil.
