Folks, it ain’t about that. It ain’t about the guy who is trying to buy a clean car when you are dirty. It’s not his fault. It’s you should figure out how to be clean. You should figure out how to do a job that doesn’t involve you walking in mud all day. And that’s possible, because somebody else has done it.
I don’t buy the idea that you know the society the way it is right now, it has to be this way. Someone is always going to have to work at Burger King. Someone is always going to have to I don’t buy that. I think people are pretty fucking flexible, if you look at the broad spectrum of humans and human behavior from different cultures all over the world. It’s a pretty obvious to me that there is a lot of different ways that people can act.
We don’t have to have fast food workers. We don’t have to have people who work shit jobs. We don’t have to. We just need to figure out how to restructure society, so everybody somehow or another plays a part, has something to contribute, has something to share. I mean, that’s what a real society supposed to be like. I give you some coconuts, you give me some fish, you know, we make a deal. And you do it back and forth and left and right and when there’s nothing to contribute, then you start looking at our president needs to give us jobs, we need jobs. So instead of something to contribute, you just find something to do with your time. And then it becomes about doing that more than it becomes about finding something to contribute.
So society gets wrapped around becoming a part of a machine. Society, instead of becoming a bunch of individuals that are expressing themselves in unique ways, and everybody sort of borrows and shares and sells this and you sell that and we all sort of figure out how we can contribute in a society, we got sidetracked and diverted into these boxes that they call companies and corporations. And we got stuck into these containers, [we call] cubicles or offices, and we got forced into this system.
So our time instead of it being invested in making pottery, or fixing cars, or doing something where you have a passion or you have some sort of a connection to, instead of that, you have sold your life to sit in a box and work for a machine, an uncaring machine that demands productivity. It doesn’t understand you, it doesn’t want to understand you. It has a bunch of very strict things in order to keep the humour at a minimum in the office, just in case one of you fuckheads says some stupid sex-jokes, that gets them sued, and they have to give somebody a million dollars.
So get it together and this is your life now: no natural behavior, everybody’s is wearing clothes they don’t want to wear, everybody’s showing up and doing something they don’t want to do, they have no connection to. That’s the problem with our society. And then what’s the reward for all this stuff? Go home, get a big TV. Go home, your going to get a shiny belt buckle. You’re going to get a nice purse. You’re going to wear shoes that you couldn’t afford last week. You’re going to get that dream car. And every week we’re chasing down this new object, and every week, we’re trying to fill this hole, in this sad shadow of a life that we’ve been left with after work. That you work eight to whatever the hours a day, plus commuting, and then you’re like this. (deep breathing)
And that’s your life. That’s your real fucking life. All that other stuff is not your life anymore. All that other stuff is work. And most of us have committed to that. I know you have been in there before, and I know I’ve been in there before. And we understand that it’s a trap, because we got out of it. But for the people that are in it, a lot of times, they don’t even understand it’s a trap. They just think it’s a good job. They think they’ve got dental. I’m doing really good, I’ve got my own parking spot that’s got my name on it. You’re just a piece of a heartless shitty machine that makes money.
But don’t you think you have to go through all that, just to figure out what you want to do, because I mean. I didn’t know…
No, I didn’t think I did, but I don’t think you have to. Look I did but I became – when I became a comedian when I was 21, I was 100% convinced that I was going to be a standup comedian for the rest of my life. Like I didn’t need to worry about what was next. I was like this is what I’m doing, like this is no – I don’t want to do anything else. Like this is what I’m doing, once I found it I was good.
All the jobs were just to feed myself while I was trying to make that work. But its some to get one and commit to it and have it become a part of your life, becomes really problematic, because if you’re a dirt-bag like myself. We drove Limos and did construction and didn’t always almost kind of temporary job that lot of people drifting in and out of. There is nothing expected of you, but if you get higher by major corporation you become part of their program, you know, like let’s say you’re also an animator and you get a gig like I have a friend who was an illustrator and he was working for Nickelodeon. And he got fired, and he was panicking and he is like shit. I don’t know what the fuck to do, he is like I got to figure out another job. So he started making paintings and selling his paintings.
It was the greatest thing it’s ever happened to him. Now he is – his name is Todd White, he is a super successful artist, he makes like this kind of Martini style or like a cocktail something like cocktail parties in the 1920s like those cool kind of cartoonists, Martini glass things. He’s got a real specific distinctive style it’s really cool. He is a great artist and he is also a black belt he just known from Jean Jacques Machado. He is a great guy but he was an opportunity for him to lose a job and even a job that he loved as an illustrator. But, you know, I’m sure it much rather do what he wants to do. And do what’s going on in his mind.
Yeah, that’s cool stuff.
