theirrelativity asked: How much of an ego would you say is a good thing?

johndarnielle:

I don’t think there are one-size-fits-all answers for this kind of question, or for general questions about how to live one’s life. I’ve known total egomaniacs who were awesome people and I’ve known genuinely humble people who ought to have thought more highly of themselves. I also don’t think there’s an answer that’ll serve you all your life. You go through phases. Sometimes you gotta preen and sometimes you gotta moult. 

I really strongly believe that a big part of being content is knowing that you’re not aiming for some optimal tuning of the motor but are, rather, constantly adjusting to different road conditions. “Don’t be hateful,” obviously, but after that, “it depends” is a catch-all here

Cant get this out of my head darn it
The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.
