how to steal like an artist
find someone you like, learn everything about them then find out who they love and learn about them. and this-the great thing about remote or dead masters is that they can’t refuse you as an apprentice.

There is no statement more erroneous than the declaration that “this is my idea”. Such notions are byproducts of a material culture that has been reinforced in seeking physical rewards, usually via money, in exchange for the illusion of their “proprietary” creations. Very often an ego association is culminated as well where an individual claims prestige about their “credit” for an idea or invention.

Now, it might seem like a stretch, but I really think the best thing you can do as an artist or a creative person is pretend your Phil Connors in Groundhog Day: there’s no tomorrow, there’s no chance of success, there’s no chance of failure, there’s just the day, and what you can do with it.

just the day. as the day.

a book can go places.. they aren’t dead.. there’s a magic in turning the page

this book was a result of 10 yrs of trial and error

creativity’s not linear..  a daily practice

on Gatto‘s dumbing us down

@austinkleon

Long blog post w/ my notes on Gatto’s DUMBING US DOWN: tumblr.austinkleon.com/post/146957337… pic.twitter.com/SJ21BtjUqR

We lock away children and old people from everyday life, either in schools or nursing homes

nobody talks to them anymore, and without children and old people mixing in daily life, a community has no future and no past, only a continuous present.

A real community allows you to be a whole person:

“the only ones I consider completely safe are the ones that reject their communal facade, acknowledge their limits, and concentrate solely on helping me do a specific and necessary task.”

Gatto sees compulsory school as an “involuntary network with strangers.”

Gatto sums it up: “Children learn what they live.

rev of everyday life.. for all of us..

a nother way.. ie: hosting life bits.. via self-talk as data..

as the day
