My New Year’s resolution, I’ve just decided, is to be more like Laurie Anderson. But I’m not sure what I mean by that. Do I mean:

1) Be in complete and total control of my creative output; incorporate everything I know and everything I possess in pursuit of what I want to express? 2) Be innovative to an absurd degree; if what I need doesn’t exist yet, invent it? (Anderson invented at least two unique musical instruments/technological creations: a new kind of violin involving magnetic tape and an electronic “talking stick”) 3) Be always, always, always critical of systems around me, and challenge them through my work? 4) Wear a white suit all the time and dance like it don’t matter?

Yes, yes, yes. And yes.
