That's Tim Hugh at FAAIM Chicago Asian American Showcase - a film festival. I've written about him here. His Kickstarter is here: http://kck.st/1EyCCNI This man has given a lot to Asian American and asks nothing in return and I'm amazed at people's apathy - especially those who received his support and money in the past. I suppose it's how some of us roll these days. You can’t replace other people’s level of caring by caring extra. Basically you can’t force people to care even if they should. Sometimes it's astounding.
Whoever said, “The older you get the less you know?” If you’re older and realize that you know less, then coming to that conclusion means you actually know more, right? But then again, all you're saying is that you knew more when you were younger. How is that possible? It means you were possibly full of shit and filled with blind confidence. I'm not willing to admit either is better yet.
The meaning of success is mostly meaningless. Yes, it's mostly measured by money or fame, but it's also about attaining what your goals, and if you want that then you need to know that the meaning of passion is passion. That's David Choe in the photos, literally giving his blood onto each skatedeck. That's a lot of blood flowing in the back of GR2 for his skatedeck, "It's Only a Flesh Wound."
Plenty of folks are making things, it's the dawn of an era where everyone can try. Not all will be great, but keep at it. Putting time in, means your nurturing yourself. After a while, others will see your nurturing, and think about how tough it will be for them to get to where you’re at. That's a Geoff McFetridge mural for a glasses shop called Warby Parker on Abbot Kinney Street in Venice, CA. He's awesome.
