Louis CK: Money is like an energy
Louis CK in his statement about the sales of his latest show, which he handled 100% himself and sells for just $5 with no DRM or restrictions or intermediaries. I bought it right away. It’s the future of publishing. I love everything about it, and CK is hands-down one of my favorite comedians.
And there was this interesting nugget about money:
I also got an education. And everything i learned are things i was happy to learn.
I learned that people are interested in what happens and shit (i didn’t go to college)
I learned that money can be a lot of things. It can be something that is hoarded, fought over, protected, stolen and withheld. Or it can be like an energy, fueled by the desire, will, creative interest, need to laugh, of large groups of people. And it can be shuffled and pushed around and pooled together to fuel a common interest, jokes about garbage, penises and parenthood.
Like and energy. Indeed.
