Angry Blogger

White Dade makes a good point:

As soon as a good, Angry Young Man blogger finds himself a girl, that nasty edge he had goes down the drain faster than a used condom on a Sunday Night. I guess it reasons, though. All the great writers are either depressed or suicidal when they do their best work, so when something comes along that brightens your outlook on life, your work suffers. How fucking selfish.

My potent, productive rage comes from not having what I want. The day I get into a happy committed relationship is the day my writing looks like Chaco’s (an awesome friend and writer!). :bigsmile:

You’re right, the best art and literature comes from the ones who are/were all screwed up – Hemingway, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, Van Gogh.

Don’t forget John Lennon in the days before Yoko. Plus Curley, Larry, and Moe. They did great work as long as the women in their movies wanted something from them.

You are nothing like those people. You have no talent. But I’ll be back tomorrow.

i definitely agree. i’ve always felt my best creative output (as in writing, music, art, but not corporate art that i have to do for the job) is when i’ve got a tinge, or maybe more than a tinge, of sadness, blackness, or what not on my mind. of course, sometimes you can trick yourself into that mode.

Damn right. They lure you to bed, cut off your hair while you’re sleeping, and next thing you know you’re a sissy. God damned Philistines.

I heard an interview with an artist who completely disagreed with the idea that great artists aren’t angry/depressed/etc. She had an interesting viewpoint. Then I thought, “She’s neither famous nor great; what the hell does she know?”

almost all the grand milestones and leaps of knowledge that carried civilization forward were done by men in their 20s and 30s while they were single and their blood coursing with fiery testosterone. scientists are especially prone to suffering career setbacks and creative hiatus once a wife and kids intrude on their singular focus. there are some exceptions to this rule — many great painters peaked in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. older novelists can sometimes call upon the intense energies that animated them when they were younger men.

the love and physical pleasure of a beautiful woman inspires greatness and risk-taking, but, once captured, slowly destroys the very thing that drew her to him. that is why it is always best for a man to place his mission in life before his women.
