“If you don’t believe in magic on some level, your art probably sucks. You have to believe in some kind of magic – I don’t mean if its god or…whatever you’re into – if your not inspired by, if your heart isn’t lifted by, some supernatural thing that you’ve witnessed or you believe in, real or not – you’re probably focusing on your looks, your money, something you’re focusing on that has no heart.”
Maynard James Keenan, on WTF Podcast
It seems that lately, I have been reading, or hearing, at least one thing a week that really makes me close my eyes and think about the richness of the meaning, a koan of sorts, I guess. This week, I just want to listen to this whole podcast episode over and over. If you like Maynard, or Maron, or just interesting people, it’s a great listen.
