Stolen from Terminal Boredom but it's so fucking good...

  1. Read a lot
  2. Talk a long walk
  3. Boredom is essential for your personal development. Good boredom is not doing anything, bad boredom is pointless distraction
  5. Attempts to look or sound more 'authentic' will mark you out as a fraud
  6. Your instrument is never the problem (unless it's broken)
  7. Ironic nostalgia + retro shtick is too easy. Make an effort or get off the stage. As Chairman Mao said, "shit or get off the pot"
  8. Read a lot (more)
  9. Advertising is to genuine culture what a 12ft tapeworm is to your gut. Strictly for those without the talent + personal courage to be artistic
  10. Take a long holiday from American/British music
  11. Doing all the above will make you a more interesting person + hence a more interesting musician.
