Lots to do; shitty pay
Once again, I worked for free.
Sometimes I work for free because I like you and it’s a small ask. Sometimes I work for free because there’s something I want and it’s not the money. But If I have to be honest, most times I accepted to work for free, it was out of inexperience, fear of commitment, definitely a lack of self-respect, and because—of course—I had the bandwidth.
It may not be as bad as Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and every other SuperBowl half-time show performer before them performing for free for the SuperBowl half-time show, but still, some people would say that this is exactly what’s killing the creative industry.
Anyway, I did it again. This time though, I did it because it was important. Soon enough, if this work doesn’t get done, you, me, the creative industry, and any other industry will have other, far more serious worries. It’s the project of our time, and there’s still a lot to do. Come land a hand. Join The Carbon Almanac Network.
