sad but true.........
Many people (particularly Americans), live their lives doing what they don’t want to do so they can earn enough money to continue doing what they don’t want to do. People struggle like this for a lifetime and then teach their children to do it.
Even the CHANCE to sell out properly is indeed a rarity
Never sell out!
Run, live to fly
Fly to live
Do or die
Won't you run?
Live to fly
Fly to live
"But the seemingly random stretch of gigs I’ve stumbled into over the years has been far more rewarding than anything I could’ve planned."
That kinda says it for me.
While people poke fun at Bohlinger for his mannerisms on the Rig Rundowns, he actually seems like a pretty solid cat.
Dropped outta school to be a plumber/gasfitter, still happy 39 yrs later
Sounds all so familiar, only difference is I did van conversions, drove a dump truck for a pool builder, then drove cross country, then became a carpenter, still a carpenter.
They're talking about me.
This was a great read. However, I've always felt that this argument, on it's own, was a bit misplaced. There are two types of happy. One comes from the general emotion of elation or joy. The other is a happiness that comes from satisfaction. Most people don't like constant hard work, but they enjoy the end result. I am not sure I would enjoy the end result of my music "work" if all I was doing was playing trite, boring stuff. I feel the same way about my real job. I am sure I could switch careers and be more "happy", but so much skill would be wasted and fewer people would benefit. As ironic as it sounds, sometimes you need to be miserable to be happy. We all set expectations for ourselves based on what we think we can be. That's a hard path to follow. There is a great line from a movie, wish I could remember which one, which says "We all fail at who we are supposed to be. The question is, do we succeed at who we are?" The problem with being a sellout is that you have accepted that you are not succeeding at who you are. Some people might be happy with that, some are not. That's called integrity.
Great story we have all been thar .
