I hate how nobody cares about process. You buy a really nice shirt for 3 quid and don’t know that it’s been manufactured by third world children who live off 2 dollars per day. You listen to a song and don’t know how it inspired an artist to write it and how much time and effort was spent to write that one damn song. or that one damn album. or how a certain sound was inspired by something from the past. You like a design that looks good but don’t know the nights spent, the amount of coffee needed to get through the whole concept exploration - design - scribbling - resolving.
Yet some people write a crap song, or come up with a crap piece of design and it sells. and it doesn’t take as long a time. there isn’t process. We’re all blinded by things that look pretty, and shit work that people produce that look pretty but probably only took them 2 days and they didn’t know why they did it.
"Oh I like it because it sounds cool"
"I like it because it sounds good"
"I like it because it looks pretty on me"
Why can’t people think of things like. “It makes me feel happy” or… “It takes me to a different dimension” or “It reminds me of the time we went on that road trip…”
Nobody cares about process. Fucking real world problems.@2 weeks ago
