at first i thought it was distractions
and maybe it is
but it’s not the ones i thought
what if my biggest distractions are facebook and twitter and instagram and reddit and snapchat?
i always tell people that it if wasnt my job i would just huck my phone
or have phone office hours and then turn it off the rest of the day
but i read those things constantly because they are a constant source of joy and information
beauty and inspiration
ways to be wicked
and 65 new ways to be a damn good person.
even if the articles are bunk im looking at the design, the SEO, the graphics, the sound
when bono sang IM WIDE AWAKE i didnt understand at the time because it was the ’80s
but im so awake its scary.
how am i supposed to focus?
and you know maybe thats the podcast right there: an hour unedited
hit record, upload, move on to the next one.
i have zero interest or time to fix shit in post.
do you have any idea how many ideas i need to get out there?
and they keep coming.
i remember when robyn bell asked me if i would be interested in leaving the letters and science dept at UCSB and come over to the college of creative studies
and i asked, creativity, eh?
then i asked, do you think our creativity drains up after a while?
and she said, nope.
and she did not lie.
