While I was not watching Sunday Morning, I was in the other room attending to a minor task which allowed me to listen to the program with one ear, and the requisite half-mind it takes to follow tv programming.
The segment was about someone named Ethan Hawke whom the interviewer referred to as "the face of Generation X." The first thing that caught my ear was Mr. Hawke's statement to the effect that when one was shooting pool, for instance, the important thing is not to make the shot, but to look good while making the effort.
Yes. Characterization of Generation X. The accomplishment, or failure to accomplish, is not important so long as one looks good in the endeavor. Form over substance.
The subject capped the interview with a summary of his philosophy. Succinctly stated, he said that if one pursues his art with dedication it is all good, whether or not the efforts culminate in achievement.
Draw your own conclusions.
