On being asked if there is a collective ethos or a social contract and if he understands it, Gibson shared,


“I do you understand it. The social contract is that you can’t get mad, you can’t let it get you because you have to make a deal with everyone else, and it’s almost unspoken that you are going to be f*cked over at some point by people who you may have done something nice for you. And it may happen that by circumstance or even very purposefully that you f*ck someone over. But that shouldn’t get in the way of you being able to sit down and have fun with them.”

“You can’t build resentment about it, you have to still try and love those people because that’s the way they’re thinking. It’s not personal they don’t really mean to hurt you no, not really. I don’t quite understand, I mean there’s a lot of motivations for why it happens.”

I mean, this is a bizarre place.”

He added that the industry is very welcoming of newcomers. They are charmed by the fresh approach the newbies bring. However, the picture changes very soon,

“It doesn’t take very long before you realize or before it gets to you it’s cascading on you all the time. You can’t get away from certain attitudes, from certain modes of behavior that this town and the industry dictate. No matter how strong you are when you come in off the farm with those convictions and those and a certain line of attack, no matter how strong you are, you are going to be affected by this place.”
