Is it good?

Is it good?

That’s a question I ask myself all the time. It applies to both the art I consume and the art that I make.

Is it good? With regards to the stuff that I make, I have no idea. I really don’t know. I love almost everything that I make (I am very biased), but that doesn’t mean it’s good. Often times it might mean that it is bad. But I don’t care. I love it nonetheless. I am amazed at how bad I am at evaluating my own work. In my head, my music both sucks hard and is wonderful at the same time. It is a confusing mindset to have. It makes my head hurt.

Maybe not knowing if something is “good” or not is what makes art so much fun. It’s fun to make and fun to consume. It’s fun to share and talk about with friends. It is fun to think about if it is good or not. And it’s fun to not be able to come up with a concrete answer. Art is better because it is unknown.

On some level, I do think I know whether something is good or not. But on another level, I may just be a delusional idiot.

It is no secret that I don’t know anything. So who knows…
