I saw Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins do a show last night where they celebrated an album they made 10 years ago by playing the whole thing, start to finish, like it was brand new. It wasn’t nostalgia.
What did you make a decade ago that you can still use?
I act like the work I’m doing today is only for today and that tomorrow and ten years from now require something new, different, better. I always want to be getting better, but the bonus of doing good work is that it lasts–you can use it more than once.
Let’s dig up some old work and put it to use again and see what happens.
