I have started making this a bit of a ritual, and I am okay with it continuing for the foreseeable future.
I’m still trying
Over the last week or two, I have been trying to sort out the subtitles on my videos via youtube. It’s going well, but I am far from done. I have completed roughly two of nearly 50 I have posted on there. I really don’t think I am going to do them all, especially since the pre-video ones I have been tempted to scrub from the collective memory. Give what I have done a watch. Consider a subscription. I highly recommend the subtitles being turned on, especially during the songs.
I always seem to ramble on and on, but I feel really good about this vlog!

Yeah, I stopped numbering these when I stopped issuing the audio-only versions.
Anyway, I hope your New Year is going well!

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.
Also, another link to buy my book! It makes a great addition to a Christmas gift!

Why yes, I did stop numbering these!
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!

I have decided that I am going to number each one of these until I hit 50. Then, we’ll see.
The audio on this post is a bit strange because I had a finger overtop of the microphone. I have new ideas for future recordings where that is less likely to be an issue.
Regardless, I have a link in the video to another video that I truly recommend.
I hint at big news later, and I plan on holding myself to that. It also implies that I am not going to share the important information until I have all parts in order.

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 am sorry I have not been doing proper updates. For transparency sake, I haven’t been writing my next book, either. A lot has gone on over the last month, and my mind has been everywhere but the keyboard. I think I’m back into the groove, now.
No, false alarm!
My next book, yes, I should probably talk about that at some time. It’s mostly done, and I only have a few points I need to either elaborate on, or completely re-write. A special thanks to “Some Guy Named Rob” for putting up with my bullshit over the last month or so. Have you check his YouTube profile? He’s doing some really cool stuff, and that is aside from his podcast about my book! The music he produces weekly is some of the best instrumental ambient/soundscape stuff you will find. I am not saying that from bias, it’s very much the truth. I will fall on that sword, if I have to. His podcast voiceover? Beautiful. Am I gushing again? I’m sorry.
SPEAKING OF PODCASTS
I have been spending a lot of time working out my next “script”, and I really hope you all enjoy and subscribe. I am sorry if you are sick of my shilling, but I will continue until I no longer feel the need for an external source of advertising.
Also, I’m thinking of dropping the numbers from the podcast. Verdict? Leave a comment below, or get hold of my privately. Whatever works for you, really.

I have stopped uploading the audio-only version of the vlog. I have been having a world of issue with Anchor, and it works in tandem with Spotify.
