You know, a lot of people think of me as the dude who is willing to make a complete ass of himself for pretty much any reason, or the dude that has weird shirts, or the dude that orders the beer at the office, and of course they’re all 100% right. But there’s one thing I really want to add onto that list: I love making things.
Often times it’s some script that saves a whole bunch of time at work, but in a perfect world, it would be making music. And the thing is, I can’t even be sure that I’m any good at it, but I don’t even give a shit, I fucking love it.
I knew I needed to take a break from work and was close to hitting my maximum amount of PTO hours, and just decided to schedule some time off. I very easily could have traveled somewhere, because there’s a lot of places I haven’t seen that I’d love to see. So much world out there that is completely foreign to me. Basically all of it, I’m pretty sheltered, let’s be real here.
But instead, the thing I wanted to do the most was to make something. I don’t even care of it’s good, or if anyone likes it, or if it even makes sense. I just needed to make something that I could have to show for all this time, energy, and money that I spend on my favorite thing in the universe.
It’s not really that long, and I don’t think it really makes any sense at all as a package of music/ideas, since it’s so completely disconnected from itself. But whatever, that’s just me. I mean, I’m not really great at anything, but I’m pretty good at a lot of things, and this collection of seemingly unrelated sounds is a pretty good representation of that.
Listen to it, or don’t! I swear I won’t be offended. All I can say is that I’m pretty proud of this right here, and it’s inspired me to spend a lot more energy on making music, hopefully with other actual humans. I can’t think of a single way that I would have rather spent my vacation.
Well, back to the ol’ grind!
