Fu*k what others think



A healthy and strong self confidence is a great resource for creativity. All artists face rejection and doubt (external or internal) at some point in their careers and must find the mental strength to carry on with ther craft and hold on to their vision. Nevermind the critics. An ability to be able to laugh at oneself helps loads. Even though you take your work seriously, doesn't mean you have to take yourself seriously. I love people who are able to let go complitely and just do their thing. Fuck what others think.

do your own thing

This is one of my favorite songs from Dragonette. The lyrics say it all. It is my favorite pic-me-up song if I´m feeling discouraged or blocked.

DRAGONETTE - WE RULE THE WORLD

You wanna move it
Shake like in the movies
Gotta use it
Huff that kind of stuff that makes you stupid
Call in the professionals to get it right
And if they hate us
Maybe hair and make up
Gonna save us
Blow it out and catch us looking famous
Then show you how to keep it up all night

We're not the ones with the big guns
Some kind of shiny secret weapons
But let's pretend that we rule the world
We've got the superhero costumes
Know how to change our clothes in a phone booth
So let's pretend that we, we rule the world

We got the know-how
Kick up the kind of stink you're hearing about
Give us a kiss and then we punch your lights out
I'll eat a fist, I'm hungry for a fight
It takes an army, looking good and booking it
We're ready
A little muscle, little cuddle, little lady
Listen, don't be chicken, pick a side

We're not the ones with the big guns
Some kind of shiny secret weapons
But let's pretend that we rule the world
We've got the superhero costumes
Know how to change our clothes in a phone booth
So let's pretend that we, we rule the world

There's more than muscle that a fighter is made of
There's got to be some cha cha ching and g-g-glitter
We're gonna see some ba-da boom before we finish
We get knocked down, we get back up in a minute

There's more than muscle that a fighter is made of
There's got to be some cha cha ching and g-g-glitter
We're gonna see some ba-da boom before we finish
We get knocked down, we get back up in a minute
We've got that fast action edit

No, we're not the ones with the big guns
Some kind of shiny secret weapons
But let's pretend that we rule the world
We've got the superhero costumes
Know how to change our clothes in a phone booth
So let's pretend that we, we rule the world
