I don't play music for the money! I play it because it's FUN and fills a void and is creative and is utterly enjoyable and, yes, because it's FUN!

If you derive no pleasure out of playing, don't do it. Seriously. Do something that brings you joy!

I also don't make money from eating tacos al vapor, backpacking throughout West Africa or South America, hanging out with friends over drinks, swimming at the beach, going on a long hike in the wilderness, or reading a book. Why do we always have to think about monetizing things? Why do we give a crap about this at all?
