Brilliant. I'll take a t-shirt if you ever make them. Or perhaps a poster to hang as a permanent reminder.

Slightly tangential, but I read a wonderful story on a TED blog (http://tinyurl.com/2kudcq) about Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic. Forgive me for quoting, it's quicker: Zander was helping a musician who was trying for a big job with a a Barcelona orchestra:

'Zander thought the guy was holding back - he kept working with him until the guy was giving it all he had and the guy went away to Spain for the interview. He came back and said he hadn't gotten the job because he played the first way, holding back. But then he said, "oh, fuck it" and went to Madrid, auditioned for 1st chair in their orchestra and got it. So Zander says that you have to get BTFI - Beyond the "fuck it" point.'

'Enough depicting' made me think of this story.
