We hate it when our friends become successful...
Except when they're amazingly talented friends like Andy Cobb, whose comedy youtube
WAS FEATURED ON
ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
It can happen.
That said, one of my favorite Twitter follows is Hugh MacLeod/Gaping Void, author of the upcoming book (I know, I know) Ignore Everybody, who argues that it's better for your art if your art is NOT the source of your income. In other words, keep your day job. Or get one if you can.
And, more to the point of Andy Cobb and Countdown, Hugh argues that "waiting to be discovered" also clouds your creativity and weakens the result of your work. I know Andy well enough to know he's pinching himself to bruises over this appearance. Totally unexpected delight makes all the work he's put into his videos (in order to entertain himself and those of us like him) worth every accolade.
As Gaping Void says, "The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props."
Yep, that's Andy. But here's some props anyhow. xo SO PROUD OF YOU.
