    Think of an artist from another discipline, and imagine which one is trying to express the same things you do in music. Answer as many as you can.

    If you were a ______ which one would you be?

    1 Painter
    2 Actor
    3 Chef

    6 Athlete
    7 Filmmaker
    8 Author
    9 Architect
    10 Sculptor

    And...... GO!

    1.) Painter - Willem de Kooning
    2.) Actor - Marty Feldman
    3.) Chef - Julia Child
    5.) Politician -
    6.) Athlete - Pistol Pete Maravich
    7.) Filmmaker - Ed Wood
    8.) Author - Donna Tartt
    9.) Architect - Renzo Piano
    10.) Sculptor - Auguste Rodin

    And for the elusive #4.), I would be a selfless, transcendent, sexless, raceless, ageless orb with absolute objectivity.

    1)politician; politicians are the scum of the earth.

    Heaven is a room full of strippers.
    Hell is a room full of politicians.

    My intent is to get you to compare the artistic work you do in music to work people do in other fields.

    Trying to get at what makes people make the music they do.
