immitation

"Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I was just listening to your music on purevolume, it's different than the band's stuff but i like it a lot, it's your voice that really makes the music

Interesting thought there. Being something you aren't is surprisingly popular among my peers as of late, especially when it comes to settling for less than they ought. Talk about a way to isolate yourself--have standards and suddenly you're on the outside.

I do agree, though. The hard part is finding yourself first.
