I don't need a celebration over my output.

I don't need a made-up status awarded as a consequence of a rigged farce.

I don't need to be noticed by unknown crowds.

I don't need compliments and flattery over mediocre work (such as this). I don't try to do better than mediocre because I don't see the point.

I don't need my art to be 'good' for it to meet my objectives.

I don't need to format my art a certain way just so it will be accepted.

I don't need consolation or pity.

I need to gain awareness and see things from different perspectives. My art helps with that, so it is a success.

What a bunch of BS. Why even offer something up if you don't give a damn.

"I don't try to do better than mediocre because I don't see the point ." ( So ? )

Go back into your little corner and cry to yourself about how much it hurts to "not use your brain".

Have you ever heard a demo version of a song that is better than the final version that is put on an album?

Sometimes something that is done quickly and without much effort or thought ends up being the best thing possible.

I imagine you've heard of the law of diminishing returns?

Many of my most successful threads were written spontaneously without much thought.

I was only speaking for myself in the original post.

I'll tell you what, . . .don't make any parachutes for me. I prefer the ones that have some thought behind them.

Off the cuff . . .is good. Planned mediocrity . . . no.

You're misunderstanding.

I'm saying if I create art and it's mediocre but it meets my objectives, it's done. I'm not going to fiddle with it to make it 'better' to please others.

Now, I'm not a professional artist. If I were, then I would have to make my art 'good enough' to sell.

Your parachute example is apt. I'm not talking about a professional endeavor; I was discussing art created for personal reasons.
