Multimedia, AV Francis Ford Coppola is one of the most prestigious and critically acclaimed directors in cinematographic history. He directed, among others, the Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, and has won so many awards it's hard to keep track. In an interview with 99%, he touched on the subject of art and making money, and his musings are fascinating, and yet another indication that the times are changing in the content industry. "Who says artists have to make money?" Coppola wonders.

Imagine how much more respected he'd be if he'd "cut his hair and got a real job". It's difficult to take your contributions seriously when you can't decide whether to condemn artists or take their words unquestioningly.

It's called humor and it was obviously a play on the old parental phrase "cut your hair and get a job".

"Hey, I want to make money on my hobbies too. Why do i have to have a real job to support myself and my family? 
Clearly everyone owes me something here."

You're a riot!

You are trying to argue it both ways ... it is obvious to support a failing arguement.
