I'm totally #4, I don't even have the slightest clue, the older I get I don't know what the fuck is going on. I definitely cannot make things happen, I'm continually pushing the three legged apple cart up the muddy hill. I've had a lot of successes, but have never been successful. All my projects yield wonderful opening results, but ultimately resolve into epic fails. I can however navigate and stagger my way through Penn Station while carrying my 12 pack of Bud without running into anyone. I can also weave my way through the tourists pouring out of Midtown Hotels at check-out time. I'm quite certain none of you have those skills ...
I don't talk about what's happening, because I don't give a fuck what's going on, everyone else is talking about, fuck it. No one really asks me how I feel about it, or wants my opinion, so therefore I don't say shit.
Don't watch, don't follow. Though one has to keep an eye on how things are done and take advantage of current topics, which don't always unfold the same for everyone. My skill is in building things, creating something beautiful from nothing, capturing a moment. I'm a day laborer, always in the trenches. Most all the time I simply wing it, when I climb into the ring I'm a street fighter, no rope-a-dope. I have a bunch of KO's, but also a bunch of bumps and bruises, and plenty of scars.
