i get so stuck sometimes

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.
