All over America, people were pulling credentials out of their pockets and sticking them under someone else’s nose to prove they had been somewhere or done something. And I thought someday everyone in America will suddenly jump up and say, ‘I don’t take any shit!’ and start pushing and cursing and clawing at the man next to him.
― William S. Burroughs, And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks (via lizgreenman)

had late night conversations about industry which ended up with me explaining, in my opinion, how authentic Artists know the intrinsic link. with this being an example a short by Nike helmed by William S. Burroughs himself, a father of Basquiat, Condo, Kerouac and myself included. interesting is interesting, point blank period - fine Art doesn’t need be boring at all, but dynamic, weird and actually something people hold dear. beyond all my silly antics and people’s ardent desire to keep my art to themselves i do reckon that is seen in my stuff.
