Video: Conversation Inspiration

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

"Sometimes you make something and the Universe just says, 'Yes, you did good today! You woke up with nothing and then you made something where there was nothing. Your job is done.'" Yup, those are good days.

I don't usually find myself clicking on videos, which is probably why this has taken so long to be watched on my queue. This is a conversation between artist Ed Ruscha and Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis. Disparate worlds not withstanding, their conversation meanders from  their love for Los Angeles (1:47) their fascination with words (2:01) and their experience of art (2:10). Everything resonates.

Writers, artists, Angelenos, check it.



Happy Halloween guys. You did good today.
