“The branding thing is something to avoid, and the sort of Facebook stamping of who you are.” – Laurie Anderson
Laurie Anderson is one of my favourite artists in all her weird and wonderful glory and there’s a new video of her giving advice to young people that is circulating around the internet so I thought I’d share the link here.
Also while we’re on the topic, here are some awesome Laurie Anderson quotes that are fun to use as writing prompts:
“And there was a beautiful view. But nobody could see. ‘Cause everybody on the island was saying: ‘Look at me! Look at me!'” – Laurie Anderson
“Jump out of the plane. There is no pilot. You are not alone. This is the time, and this is the record of the time.” – Laurie Anderson
“Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” – Laurie Anderson
“When love is gone, there’s always justice. And when justice is gone, there’s always force.” – Laurie Anderson
Anyways, hope the prompts are helpful and the video is enjoyable. Happy Tuesday!
