Just over a year ago I put together an amateurish little music video and posted it on You Tube. So far it has had exactly ten views. Not exactly viral, I fear. It certainly won’t be knocking Grumpy Cat and his ilk off their virtual perches, that’s for sure. On the other hand, ten is a nice number. Three better than seven, I would venture to suggest.
Psychologists tell us that we tend to be too fond of our own ideas. We nurture our little brainchildren and become very over-protective and under-objective. Also we tend to act a lot like pushy parents, shoving our progeny into the limelight at the drop of a hat and shouting “Look at them! JUST LOOK AT THEM! Aren’t they wonderful?”
In my defence, I may now be reasonably accused of the same thing, but think how much discipline it took to wait a year before I cracked and went the route of self-indulgence.
Now watch my bloody film you bastards!
OK, OK! I know what you mean. We all love our own musings, musical projects, ideas to change the world and yes, even our children the best. Even when they are insufferable.
