In all my griping about hipster snobs yesterday, I might have lost sight of the fact that ultimately the failure to sell a book proposal has to fall on the guy who wrote it, namely me. Yes, maybe it's not right or fair that a band like Operation Ivy isn't as widely known or appreciated as they should be, but ultimately it's not up to people to accept that simply because I say so. If I want recognition for a band, an idea, a political philosophy, even for a laundry detergent, I have to make the case. Apparently when it comes to this Operation Ivy proposal, I didn't do it well enough, and for that, well, there's no one else to blame but me.

Damn it.
