there’s this theory about our collective imagination, and you’re either in tune with it or not. and i think, yes that can be used as an excuse, but it’s also kind of true. it’s certainly true in poetry and literature. you could even say the same in fashion. it’s how you use it. when people rip each other off but don’t add anything original to the equation, it’s painful because you can hear the anxiety of the creator wanting to be loved. i’m not going to say any names, but you know what i’m on about. that desire to be loved, rather than, ‘fuck you, this is all i got.’
