Haha yeah I know you do. I just need someone who knows Samoan, and also needs to get on my good side a little bit.
We all have people who give us a little kickback, and I think it’s very hard to get into this business without someone. I think one day we’ll all be able to go around, and say that we have a lot of people with good relationships, and they can be friends with each other. They can get behind you without feeling bad. You can even bring people your own age to play with, which is really cool. You can learn a lot from people.
Do you consider yourself very “invented”? I know that you were the best and brightest in the community, but were we all?
Yeah, if I wanted it badly enough or didn’t care, I was good enough too. I never got rich. I never had a lot of people supporting me, and I was in it to make a decent living. The community’s been nice to me. I think that what made me good enough is the fact that I’m not someone who gets everything my friends want. I’m not a self serving person, so I know I can make mistakes, and I can learn from mistakes. I don’t just get it all. So I don’t get special treatment. I can admit I made the right choices, whatever they were, and try to fix it.
That brings me to another concern for newcomers to the scene. The community is incredibly small, and with people who don’t talk or share much, how can we grow? Is there a community group, a website, or is this something entirely new?
The thing is, I don’t know if there’s a community group, I think it’s probably Facebook. Like, that’s my thing. We’re small, and that’s not our fault. I think that all the big problems in our scene can be solved with Facebook. People say “I have no Facebook friends,” and I just laugh because I have an incredible list of friends! That’s the kind of thing we need to do to grow.
Yeah, well this is one of my concerns. For years, we all thought that people in the industry were more invested in us than we were in ourselves, and we thought that was a good thing to think. Now when people say to me, “Oh, you didn’t really care about that guy you knew because then he would leave you
