db - no question, just a thank-you for this blog-thing you set up. ive read many of them and enjoyed them
(especially the Babbitt piece). please keep it up, and good luck with the rest. shawn s
0h thank you, i haven't been working on them no more because it seems like the internet is stuffed with all these opinions about everything, i find it overwhelming. and also you get so many negative comments about all that stuff. if you put up a video of a flower blooming, someone would say something horrible. so, it kind of discourages you pretty good. thank you for saying something nice, that is very cool of you.
Ask a question...Danny Barnes responded on 11/21/2014 Next question
In the songs "Rich boy blues" and "Money moves up" You seem to be expressing dislike/concern for financial inequality and undeserved financial success/comfort. I am curious what you would do if tomorrow you found your self totally financially secure through no specific act of your own. Suppose a long lost uncle died and left you 5 million dollars. What would you do with the money? How would your relationship to producing your art change if you didn't have to earn a living from it? Would you spend less time driving around playing gigs and more time developing your spiritual practice? Would you feel a responsibility to do something humanitarian/charity based? I realize hypothetical questions can be annoying and I won't hold it against you if you don't feel like answering. Money is such a large part of everyone's life and I'm just curious how you would live yours if producing an income was a non factor.Danny Barnes responded on 12/12/2014
