"The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit." - BANSKY

It seems silly that so many musicians and actors, artists and poets talk about themselves as if personal recognition is paramount. A body of work or knowledge is more valuable to society than any one human life. If an idea is useless than the name of the person with the idea will never be known. N'est pas?
