Interesting artists accumulate interesting rules over time.
How to use themes. How to tell a story. How to build tension anywhere, anytime.
Then they learn rules on how to break rules.
Rules like: use cliches to deceive audience, deliberately misuse analog equipment, use poor taste as an ironic statement.
And when we break rules in ways that break outdated norms, we contribute fresh ideas that mark the progression of culture.
Go smash shit up.
