I have to battle against thinking I am. Thinking that would be boasting that I'm capable of actually achieving something of artistic merit and it was just down to my lazy attitude that I've never made something of my life.
I could have been a musician, a film director, a screenwriter, a novelist. All these things I could have been but I've just been too lazy to find other people with the enthusiasm to help me.
See? It's a good case for the prosecution.
Rather than make my own art I take great pleasure in criticising other people's. Is this healthy?
Well, look at all the tortured artists. There's no way in the world I'd want to be one of those. Satisfaction in your own art can't last forever. Unless you're completely up your own arse. And who wants to be Bono?
So give me the lazy life with full reign to think and observe without the drive to be someone. The drive that screws people up.
