Go watch some 13 year old Chinese girls play piano on Youtube and come back and tell us that you're actually a great musician.

As the anon in question, I wasn't trying to put you down or damn by faint praise. I guess what I was saying is that, despite the fact that you're not a virtuoso musician, there is some _musical_ substance there that connects with people, beyond whatever concept your songs may have. And so your move into the art world, and your shedding of that emotional connection for 100% conceptual formalism, might be the reason why some folks are not 100% with you on your art career. That was just wild speculation in the spirit of yesterday's post.

Those folks would simply be wrong about "100% conceptual formalism"! I'm sitting in art galleries telling stories, and I'm sitting in recording studios telling stories. The difference is all in the prejudice of the eye of the beholder, and it's a prejudice I'm trying to battle. Oh, and talking of Battles, dig this for 100% conceptual formalism!
