in my ongoing quest for "give SPOZ a freakin' CAREER already"..
I've just updated my online folio, it looks really shiny now too.. :)
if this bad bastard doesn't give me some serious career and cash advancement.. then, I dunno wot will.. besides the graphic design equivalent of the "casting couch" (OUCH! don't even GO THERE duuuude)
hi.. I'm cheerful graphic design mercanery for hire.. LET ME WORK SOME MOJO YA BAAAASTARDS!!
so, I'm name dropping this site everywhere..
coz, I'm looking to sell out to the highest bidder.. ;)
on another note.. I've noticed a lot of fellow musicians live twin lives..
(really don't we all?)
there's wot you do for your soul.. the music, the art, the near professional hobby..
then there's wot you do to sell your soul.. the work, the job, the weekly slave wage..
some people are lucky.. everything they do, is fulfilling in some way and pay's them the cash to roll in cheerful equilibrium.. damn, they're the people to be..
but in most cases, it seems kinda backwards.. that the things people LOVE to do.. earn little money, compensation, or anything to be able to support your life upon.. and so really you're doing it in spite of it all.. in sacrifice to it all... starving to death merely to express your'self.. whilst.. what we HATE to do.. pays us just enough money to keep draggin thru day by day..
all this would make sense.. if we still lived by the ancient egalitarian notion of - "8 hours of work / 8 hours of sleep / 8 hours of play".. seemed like a nice dream, but considering our workaholic society where people work countless overtime just to keep their jobs.. it's not to likely now is it?
I remembered reading somewhere that ancient hunter gatherer societies only actually spent at most 4 hours a day to hunt their food and keep their families fed.. the rest of the time, is spent idle.. just dreaming crazy shit up.. gettin' some woopin' jungle love.. hangin' around the camp fire.. and inventing crazy rituals involving big masks and psychedelic drugs..
really, have we progressed as a society?
are we social / adaptable / inventive humans?
or worker drones in some giant termite hive?
if everyone actually got to do the job they LOVE... how much cooler would this world be?(then again, without people doing the shit jobs.. our civilization would crumble into ruin..)
for all the fun accomplishments of our civilized world.. we're seriously fucked up..
