There is a guy who plays an alto saxophone in the middle of Marine Parade every weekend.
Today, he played My Heart Will Go On.
I saw quite a few people get up to give him money, so that would encourage him to continue.
I was appalled. I think in the US someone would beat him up and steal his money. But here people give you money for being so very banal and average.
Sometimes, when somebody beats somebody else up and steals that person’s money, it is because s/he has been driven insane by people getting rewarded for their mediocrity all the damn time.
