I agree on a lot of what you say. I just believe that some things are large=

I agree, keeping in mind that they're not mutually exclusive.

Today, I argue, many people put money and personality into too much light.<=

Even in things that have no connection with art. Look at how many of today&=
#39;s basketball players talk - you'd think that before they were born,=
they'd given themselves their athletic abilities!

While a lot of those things should be kept personal, like awareness of achi=
evements, not be shown on TV in form of a show where they show off houses a=
nd cars.

Or even a video channel that was founded to show music videos? (Yah, I know=
, the real MTV died a long time ago!)

I think one should keep in mind that one use of the media is to tell people=
, "Here is my work. Here is my renown." So if you're a travel=
ing musician and come into a town to play a concert, it's certainly OK =
to be interviewed by the local radio station, maybe play a few songs and si=
gn some CDs at the local music store. One can do all that without going ove=
rboard into ego and personality.

Well, easier for some than others! I can't quite picture Axl Rose or Mi=
ck Jagger stuffing their egos and personalities into a sack before going in=
to the interview.

Here in Hawaii, we have a long tradition of Hawaiian music and chant (not t=
hat tourist stuff!). At one place where I worked, there was an older (70+) =
native Hawaiian man named Kawika whose job was to distribute and pick up in=
teroffice mail. Knew him for many years. He was friendly, knew everyone in =
the large company, did his work, never talked about himself.

One day someone else in the office asked if I'd heard that his song had=
won a Hoku Award (Google it). I didn't even know he wrote music! It tu=
rned out that he'd written many Hawaiian songs, and one he'd writte=
n for his daughter that year had won the Hoku.

At the same place, for several years, the director of one of the department=
s was Marlene Sai. I worked with her daily for two weeks straight, document=
ing their department procedures, and never knew this about her: <http://www.hawaiianmusichistory.com/artists/marlene-sai.htm>=

Another place where I worked, we had a part time worker, a native Hawaiian =
man, who did messenger duties and light maintenance work at various buildin=
gs the bank I worked for owned. Then someone asked if I'd walked over t=
o see his sculpture yet. He'd been commissioned to make four Hawaiian s=
culptures in bronze for the lobby of a large new high rise office building =
downtown! And had apparently been sculpting for about 20 years. That was wh=
y he only worked part time! He also didn't talk about himself or his sc=
ulpture.

Hawaiian culture is that way. You don't talk about your deeds, you don&=
#39;t glorify yourself. You have glory when others talk about your deeds. A=
nd you always have an attitude of gratitude for the gifts/talents you have.=
