So you suck at making music.....

 I ran across this interesting article thanks to my friend DJ Drue. Its found on If your frustrated with where you are musically.... Don't worry, everyone starts somewhere. Granted some people are born with more musical talent than others, but that doesn't play as big a role in success as you would think. Practice and work! Put in those hours! Push yourself to be as skilled and creative as possible. Become obsessed! Anyway I'm not preaching I'm just saying....

The Suck Factor
I was talking to an artist I met the other day & was intrigued that he was not only getting by with his art, but that he was living a pretty good life from it. Most of what he makes sells out pretty fast, and it’s not like he lives in a big city, so I was impressed. Naturally, I had to investigate what made him tick & what separated him from all the starving artists.
I already had learned that he was very good at what he did so I figured that he obviously was born with quite a gift.
well… yes & no…
He definitely had a gift, but it wasn’t as an artist. A least not from the start. His gift had more to do with his ability to plan for what most artists would consider red flags for any artistic pursuit. Sucking.
Where most people would try something once & fail, try again maybe a year or 2 later, failed again, then give up, he didn’t look at things the same way. His art of choice was ceramics, something I tried once or twice and gave up (anyone need an ashtray?). What really surprised me is the story he told me & how he viewed his experience.  It’s not the way most of us approach things or define the experience at all.

You're Never Too Old...

DJ Wika Szmyt plays music at a club in Warsaw Jan. 4th, 2012. Szmyt, 73, spends her retirement days behind a dj console watching people dance to her rhythms. She plays Disco for a mostly older audience. But on occasion plays for younger crowds. Now this is Old School!
