Voicemail: Dear Dan, first time caller, long time listener. I write the same song over and over. I’m ashamed and a failure.
Dan: You should be concerned not about writing the same song but about judging it over and over, getting depressed and allowing voices of doom to set the agenda, fuck that shit. Try writing about that – if your upset your paintings have too much red the problem isn’t too much red, it is getting upset about too much red. All you need is a little pivot.
