    Episode 32: Consumption

    Episode 32: Consumption

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});


    The world has been split into two tribes. The creators and the consumers. Mass creation and mass consumption. And here’s the twist! Most of the time, the consumers ALSO create and the creators ALSO consume!

    There’s a lot of factors to which tribe you belong in.  We measure a great creator by evidence of mass consumption. On the same note, a great consumer knows how to down a lot of creations!

    Consumers are decked out head to toe in someone else’s creations where creators are constantly consumed by what they should create to reach the largest amount of consumption!!! It’s a trap! Run!

    The truth is, our culture is steeped in capitalism and opportunity. Capitalism creates opportunity. Opportunity creates purpose. Purpose create fulfilment. This is why it’s so easy to get suckered. Everyone, everywhere, is trying to sucker us.

    And we’re trying to sucker others. It’s a giant game, with billions of moving pieces and no one knows the rules. The ones who convince you to follow their rules, win the game.

    Know what you’re consuming. Think about the shows you watch and the books you read. Their impact. What’s the hidden agenda? What’s the underlying truth? What’s going unsaid and why does it exist?

    Being critical of what we let into our minds will eventually help us discipline what we let out of our minds.

    I want to create good work but I need to put my influences in check so I can take responsibility for what I put out into the world and why.

    Episode 31: Obliteration

    Episode 31: Obliteration

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});


    It’s the end of the world as we know!!! And I feel FANTASTIC!!!!!! Smash those expectations to the ground! Screw how I’m SUPPOSED to be or what I’m SUPPOSED to do!!! Damn!! This feels good! This feels right! This is thousands of years of philosophy and social studies pouring out of my angsty forever-teenage brain!!! The age of obliteration has finally arrived!!!! *cannons fire, lights blaze across the sky, people everywhere revolt against themselves*

    Listen. More or less, we all have the same problems and we’re hearing everyone else talk about the same solutions in different ways. It’s always the super simple answer that’s the right answer. Need a change? Change something. Not happy with what you’re doing? Do something else. Hate the way you act? Act differently. But each other us learn differently. Sometimes, the things I speak or write about resonate with people because it’s not perfect. I’m working out the thoughts with you on the spot and trying to get to the same place. We’re unfinished and not the people we like to pretend we are online. We’re more. We’re less.

    That’s why I’m done with tune-ups. I’m done re-purposing. I want to smash myself to pieces and start from scratch. I’m nothing without a strong foundation. So continually building off of shoddy groundwork builds towards the same topple time and time again.

    I’m going through this now in my own life. Obliteration. I’m getting rid of everything, emerging from the rubble, and just walking towards the sun until I’m close enough to roast marshmallows. Rock n’ roll!

    Episode 30: Expectations

    Episode 30: Expectations

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});


    I was originally going to title this “Expect the Unexpected” but couldn’t remember if I named the Big Brother episode that or not! And I didn’t! I called it “Big Brothering” for some reason. There I go! Smashing my own expectations once again! But isn’t that what today’s episode is all about? Expectations?

    They’re the death of us but we just can’t let them go. I’ve been haunted lately by this idea that I won’t evolve. That I’ll let old habits hold me back and stay in my comfort zone instead of taking the necessary risks to get myself closer to my goals.

    A lot of this “cemented thinking” is from expectations. When you have a mental waypoint to where you think you should be going, you get down on yourself when you’re nowhere close or give up when you think you’re going the wrong way. But life doesn’t have waypoints.

    It’s a blank map and you can walk anywhere you want.
