I recorded this because I got thinking about how we put too much pressure on ourselves to be the best at things we claim to love. We seem to forget that we love something because we love it. If you love something, there should not be a goal, unless what you love is the goal. There is nothing wrong with getting better, but your attachment should not be based on skill.
There is a great playlist of all of them at the end of each video, so numbering feels unnecessary. Let me know if I am wrong, or if you disagree! I probably won’t listen, but I would appreciate the insight!
Also, I said “new album” instead of “new book”. It was a mistake at time of recording, but I kept it in the final product because the assumed upset was far too exciting for me to ignore. I assumed too high, but that’s okay.
I have started actually scripting a commercial for You’re Not Dead. I hope that it will be all prepared in the next couple of weeks, as it heavily circles the Christmas season.
If you have a quote you would like me to use in the commercial, get hold of me somehow and let me know!
My ultimate purpose of this is to raise awareness of the topics instead of giving answers. The real answers to both are long, and very intricate. I recommend reading the wikipedia pages on both for a more in-depth, but still cursory, understanding of the topics. Especially for Labour Day; it’s truly fascinating!
I finally got my ass in gear and got one of these done.
I meant what I said in the video! If you have something to brag about, even if it’s just putting your pants on the right way today: tell me about it in a comment somewhere! I would love to hear about it!
About the song — it’s Forlorn by All Cut Up. It was written by Melo and Kev, making it one of the few ACU songs not 100% written by Kev. I do backup vocals, drums, and I programmed the piano at the end. It will probably always remain as my proudest bit of producing I have done.
Yeah, I did another one celebrating Joel’s birthday. I only meant it to be a “short”, but YouTube decided that it needed to be a full video.
I can share it on here, where the short I cannot. This is a demonstration of the shorts I have done. They are easy to produce, but not too long to take up your day. There is a link to the full playlist at the end of this video, and I implore you to take a look!
