ETSY

John asks Lilou about Etsy | They agree that people want free stuff | Lilou says yes

John: I have come to the conclusion that you love Etsy. Why is that?

Lilou: The wide range of handmade stuff is incredible.

John: You love it handmade?

Lilou: Nothing beats it.

John: Isn’t Etsy like a supermarket full of sellers that all want to rip you off, or is that a very bad thing to say?

Lilou: Since there is so much to choose from, one can decide for oneself what is reasonable and what’s not. I often think people don’t charge you enough for the work they put into their products.

John: Is it out of kindness or low self esteem you think?

Lilou: Probably low self esteem or cheap ass people who don’t want to pay for quality stuff.

John: So what really is an appalling human behavior of always choosing cheap and industrialized makes it possible for you to swim like a killer whale in the sea of commerce?

Lilou: Yeah, but we have the same problem with our music.

John: Of course. People have so much to choose from, so they can pick the worst thing they find and still be satisfied because nobody is satisfied for real, or am I going where you can’t follow now.

Lilou: I was more thinking that they’re used to getting stuff for free.

John: Industry made us all equally ignorant to the beauty of creation. Somebody should have blown up the first steam engine to spare us of this madness. But then of course you couldn’t have bought all that stuff from Etsy.

Lilou: I wouldn’t have had to buy it on Etsy. I would have found it in stores here in Sweden.

John: True. I guess that sums up most of the things we want to accomplish with our music too.

Lilou: Yes.
