The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or that show something I have never seen before.
Stephen Malkmus is a quarter-century removed from the time he offered up the simple aphorism, “You gotta pay your dues before you pay the rent.” One is curious if the sentiment, taken from the song “ Range Life ” off Pavement’s 1994 classic Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was fully clear to Malkmus at the time, a 27-year-old embarking on the halcyon festival circuit that was Lollapalooza.
