"The problem with you," he said, "is that you write what you want for shows that you want. This isn't about art, man. It's about getting as many shows as you can and then cashing in. It's about employment."

Some of us say it's because we're free spirits or some such quasi-cosmic fluff. I dunno much about that. What I do know, however, is that we piss too high and we swing our egos around like warhammers because we think we have creative superpowers that can boil your brains inside your skull. We don't want employment. We want a piece of the goddam kingdom. It's not about what the audience wants from us. It's about what we want to give the audience."
