Ya Know Its Hard Out Here — For Anyone

Dana @ 3:45 PM | Filed under: General

While waiting for the subway this morning,

I saw this man setting up his microphone and amp — he was preparing to perform. He looked like he knew what he was doing; seasoned.

I listened to this guy struggling to play Moon River on his guitar.

It was brutal.

And,

as if his guitar playing wasn’t bad enough, he started singing too.

I was standing there thinking that he was really terrible, hoping that someone else would ask him to “Please stop. Please.”

Then I remembered the line from Hustle and Flow , that I love so much:

“Every man has a right to contribute a verse.”

and it didn’t sound quite so bad anymore.
