I love to hate dislike* Bob Lefsetz. The guy is a sanctimonious asshole (at least that’s the persona he sells on his blog), but he is often quite funny in an odd kind of way. Anyhow, Bob has had his Hunter S. Thompson moment:

Stop listening to the suits. Stop getting in bed with corporations who will use and abuse you. Don’t compromise. Focus on your art. If you’re truly good, people will find you. Because there are very few good things in this world and so much of what is sold is crap purveyed by lying, cheating, scumbags.

Ain’t that the truth.

  • I don’t ‘do’ hate, mostly :-)
