Dave Eggers on Keepin’ it Real

“The keeping real of shit matters to some people, but it does not matter to me. It’s fashion, and I don’t like fashion, because fashion does not matter.”

What matters is that you do good work.

What matters is that you produce things that are true and will stand.

What matters is that the Flaming Lips’s new album is ravishing and I’ve listened to it a thousand times already, sometimes for days on end, and it enriches me and makes me want to save people. What matters is that it will stand forever, long after any narrow-hearted curmudgeons have forgotten their appearance on goddamn 90210.

What matters is not the perception, nor the fashion, not who’s up and who’s down, but what someone has done and if they meant it.

What matters is that you want to see and make and do, on as grand a scale as you want, regardless of what the tiny voices of tiny people say.”
