What you should say is that, you're learning from other's misfortune and mistakes in order to progress your individual goals.

That's definitely part of it. For me personally though, I work better creatively when I'm feeding off the raw energy of someone else's experience. It's not as logical as talking myself through why I should or shouldn't do things. I just like to internalize the overall energy of a place and run with it (whether it's positive or negative). But you could definitely say that it inevitably leads me to lump things into one or the other category because neutrality doesn't foster creativity very well. 

Only through the loss of translation, body language, and potentially lack of understanding in english word choice(as i take it you are an immigrant; from another post you've said) would i consider the last statement to be true.

Maybe body language would have sold it better, but honestly it'd probably take a more long winded conversation in person to actually explain my reasoning. Oddly enough a lot of my views stemmed from philosophy debates with my college professors. Not that that qualifies them as anything more valid, but they're not based in ignorance.

I see how so many people are literally suffering through their weeks to have this short 2 day window, that they then waste on doing nothing of value. The sadness and fragility of their existence energizes me.

Eh, in short, be honest about your personality and work around that.

This makes perfect sense to me, and I really don´t get why more people are motivated this way.  You have made a choice for yourself.  Everyday you work a lot(or a little) towards your goal.  That means that you´re on your way.  Looking at my friends I see the opposite all the time.  They are set in their ways, not wanting to evolve(damn Pokemons), or improve, as they are "comfortable" where they are.  Except they´re not.  They´re actually miserable inside ´cause they´re done.  Chosing to be set, and safe, is by all means fine.  But, the most common thing that therapists encounter these days, are people who are depressed because they never went after what they really wanted.  Even though there are a lot of people making music, the number of who would really go for it is relatively low. Anyone who has made a real decision as to what they want, has a major advantage over everyone that has not.  So attila´s approach here is accurate to me.

Word up, i'd hope it wasn't based on ignorance lol.

I think that's a product of concepts that haven't been explored or taught. It's easy to get distracted in this materialist world. Eventually you just gotta decide when you've had enough man, and stop chasing the dragon that other people have set for you.

Stubborness can also be a byproduct of that materialism too, but more than likely it's a natural disposition or the lack of access to people to help you look at things objectively.

To be quite honest, the more i continue to live my life and progress through engineering school, the less i want to actually be a professional musician. It's a pain in the ass man. But every thing in life has a hustle, it just depends on where you want to allocate your resources and to what extent.

Back to that last point, people don't even seem to know themselves well enough to get that far into their decisions.

I always speak more to personal philosophy behind the way of the chosen art, rather than how to get a siqqq skrilslslskdjb;zkjd sound. It's the individual that will eventually learn to make the sound they create, but they first need to know themselves enough to a point to continue their personal growth in order to continue to grow as an artist.

A certain piece of the human spirit seems to have been loss with the progression of technology and increased understanding of data and it's utilization. Emotions and behavior are easily quantified and qualified. "the regular" people need to regain a sense of themselves to prevent a complete take over, getting into lizard man talks but it's still true.
Josh Huval: Honestly, the guys who are making good art are spending their time making it.

Idk but i never feel for filled if i sat and watched anime or played video games all day but if i spent the whole day making music or drawing i feel really good even if i didn't improve and it sucked i just feel one day i might be able to create things that are from the heart and i feel if u reach that point, i think ur life is probably better than anyone elses. I just look at Porter Robinson and its like he doesn't care how famous he is or if some of his songs sound retarded but he can make something that separates him from pretty much every other person. So for me maybe i might not reach the point where i ever get super good at something but least in a few years ill be able do something when im bored and be proud of it rather than wasting time and crap.
