“If you’re not a little bit crazy, there’s something wrong with you.”
I’m not talking about mental illness, which is a serious ailment that needs to be treated as earnestly as any disease of the body.
No, I’m just talking about those who colour outside the lines, dance to a different beat, think outside the box, etc.The definition of the word crazy differs from every person’s perspective, but also in the context it is used.
In respect to artists, I think what’s important is to not allow that freedom of thought to escape you and keep the creativity flowing even if it’s not that good, or not commercial enough to sell, or looked upon as crazy. We are so hung up on money, that we’ve closed our colourful spectrum of imagination for fear that we will be seen as too abnormal.
Go crazy and let your mind soar!
Go to the podcast my husband and I have recorded about songs that deal with that word “crazy”:
It’s Wednesday, which means that I’ve made it half way until the next episode of The Walking Dead!
People who don’t watch this apocalyptic program don’t comprehend why us fanatics are hooked.

What keeps me coming back for more is the believable behaviours of human beings when all poop hits the fan. They have ego maniacs and power hungry individuals taking the lead in small societies that have managed to survive the outbreak. Imagine someone you know to be a good talker, a popular person without too much going on upstairs, whose really into something weird on the side: these are the people that are running parts of the remaining few living.
What makes the protagonists different from the rest is that they are able to retain some good integrity and morals, unlike the monsters that rule over the different communities they encounter.
