Altruism |Anthem |Capitalism |Egoism |Individualism | Interview with musician Airick Woodhead, aka Doldrums.
NORRIS: A lot of what you do and what you talk about seems to emphasize the idea of individuality and even—correct me if I'm wrong—but going so far as to advocate being sort of selfish about your work. I read one place you said that you feel like "community" has taken over everything and that you even think we are too altruistic of a world. And that was the one place that you lost me.
WOODHEAD: Well, I was reading Ayn Rand or whatever...
NORRIS: It's so funny you should say that—I can show you in my notes here where it says, "Is he the musical Ayn Rand?"
WOODHEAD: Well, she also has this element of slogan to her writing, which I fucking love. I know she is seen as this capitalist, not exactly the most favored woman for me to be all into. But the ideas are nicely put.
