ze frank motivational speaker

Online performance art man, Ze Frank recently posted the above short video as a motivational call to arms for creatives and artistic-types who've been experiencing a bit, or a lot of self-doubt (and who doesn't do that from time to time?). No, there are no threats pertaining to a "van, down by the river", but he does drop the 'ol F-bomb a couple of times (so, no, this was not intended for kids to watch). All pettiness aside, this really spoke to me, being someone who got back into art fairly late in the game, at least according to our culture's youth-centric, ageist standards. I'm reminded a bit of Henry Rollins' spoken word approach here, which is a good thing. Thanks Mr. Frank for the much needed kick in the keister. I will heed your intelligent, impassioned words.
