As mammals we’re attracted to shinny things, which explains why doors to the entertainment biz are crammed with talent. We look at working on the set of Iron Man as a dream or goal, but what happens when you arrive and your job is to mop up the blemish on Robert Downey Jr.’s sweet face?
It’s not success that we want, it’s recognition for our hard work. This is why Disney movies in the 90’s had penises to and fro. People worked hard but got no recognition, no praise. Thus, hidden dick.
It’s not money we want, we just don’t want to worry all the time. It’s not absolute freedom we want, it’s a worthwhile challenge.
