Andrew W.K.

Andrew W.K. is not interesting as much for his music, as for his attitude and carefully crafted persona, though his music is intrinsically wrapped in his charm. I highly recommend watching this because it's a perfect example of how his life philosophy enables him to do the many different things he does without it seeming banal and forgettable, even if you leave feeling like he's a scrub practioner. He says, in this performance for the office workers of NPR, something along lines that he tries to find perfection in his process, not the product, that the experience of doing things and having fun doing them is what its all about for him. It's an undeniably infectious attitude and I wish I had more of it.

See it over yonder
