Last week I met up with Colin Frangicetto to talk about music and art. I began writing what was supposed to be last week's column, but other factors in my life got in the way, and I returned to it this week. At the same time, discussion brewed again about Buzzmedia "buying up all the punk stock" or whatever, and it just sort of hit me about how much we complain about the price of art and our trades versus the creation of it. You can read my very long rant on the subject here. This week I have one question for you: How much of your time, money and effort have you put into something you loved for more than just the return? Take this weekend to make like The Hold Steady, and try to stay positive.
