It’s been a while since I’ve done a “lifestyle” post and I almost didn’t write the one you’re reading now. Everything I wrote sounded dismal and depressing to me, going against my philosophy for what “indoob” represents which is being positive. Except when it comes to a bad movie, all bets are off.
But in short, I’ve added to my career plate. More meat rather than veggies. If it’s one thing this foodie can tell you, it’s that too much meat with put you in a food coma faster than the itis (see picture above, food prepared by my sister). To me, they aren’t the same, but very similar. I once had a prime rib that was 3 inches thick and I could wear it as a mask if I wanted to disrespect glorious food like that, but do you think I could have finished it in one sitting? (more…)
It’s been almost a year since Kevin Marc and I last had an impromptu interview, but this time we planned it out as we have a sit-down talk about upcoming events in the KMTV universe. I’m still getting used to being an interviewer, but it’s easy when the person you’re talking to is as silly as you are.
Around the 18:30 mark, Kevin and I pose a question about tweeting in all caps. Do you agree with him? Have any thoughts on that subject or anything else in the interview? Hit the comments.
I didn’t expect to be where I am today a year ago. In fact, it’s been almost a year and two weeks since I’ve been laid off and I’ve felt more creatively fulfilled than when I was working in an office. The major difference between now and then is the lack of income. I made good money in my office job. Truth be told, I was bored, stifled and everyone knew it.
As unexpected as being let go was, it was emancipating. I went back to school, started a radio show/podcast with a growing fan base, worked on a movie set, and started my own business. Creatively I’m in a better place. (more…)
I think I’ve always had a problem when it comes to staying on schedules I set up for myself. Everything is fine when I’m working for/with others and there is a deadline set, I can meet it or accomplish early. I haven’t quite figured out how to establish that kind of commitment when it comes to my own personal projects. What’s bizarre is that these are projects I want to do.
Blogging, for example, I need to force myself to sit down and write. Sometimes, yes, I am too busy actually doing something else when I have the urge to write. But there are other days that I’m literally staring at the wall, or in other words I could be a lot more productive and make better use of my day. (more…)
I figured this would be a great time to get some blogging done while I log in the hours of video processing and converting and uploading that exists in the world of video production. B-O-R-I-N-G. The editing is the best part though. The rendering and anything that involves a progress bar? Not so much. I’ve been told I have a lot of patience. But I think that only applies to people and food. Machines? I’ve frequently have stated that I wish inanimate and sometimes intangible objects (like the internets) had throats that I could strangle into submission. (more…)
Rather than freaking out about the ton of work that magically has appeared in the last 24 hours and what I need to accomplish in the next 1 hour, I decided to take 20 minutes to pacify some of my concerns by writing them out and expressing it to my Indoobians out there. Please send your cool, calming and chillaxing vibes through the series of tubes that is the internet to help keep me as the passive Mr. Cool which equal my dominate persona. While I may feel like this:
…I’m actually in a better state of mind. I just need to breathe and pray. (more…)
Netflix recently recommended this documentary to me based on what I’d assume my like of a string of documentaries I’ve watched recently, and probably my marathon of Mad Men, which is a recent favorite show added to my list of enjoyable TV. For those completely unaware as to what Mad Men is or what it’s about, it’s a drama on AMC about a Madison Avenue advertising company that takes place in the 60′s. Since it’s been on the air and winning Emmy’s, I constantly ignored the show… but I’m going to stop myself from raving of it’s awesomeness since this about Art & Copy. (more…)
So it’s been 2 months to the day since my last blog post. For that, I apologize. I still very much love and care about my beloved blog and those that read it religiously or happen to stumble on it thanks to a random search, or linked from a friend. Nevertheless, thanks for your visit(s) and I hope you come back and continue reading! Don’t forget the #1 way to catch up with me is on Twitter.
In short, a lot has happened to me in two months time, and I felt it’d be quicker to review those events with a video, but it would actually take me longer to produce a video than it would to write. Sooner or later I might get back on a regular blogging schedule. If only that was a benefit of fiber. (more…)
Hey Indoobians. I’m technically still on hiatus, but I was in shooting/editing mode and I decided to have a quick chat with my buddy, fellow CSB classmate and Renaissance man Kevin Marc. Watch here as we shoot the breeze about inspirations, books, and forest critters we see behind the school. There will be more videos to follow. In the meantime, follow him on Facebook (twice) and YouTube. The kid does his own reality show and as much as I dislike reality TV, I can’t help but cosign since I find myself watching it.
Anyway, in this video, I forgot to add his Twitter and his Tumblr. Fame whore…
And yes, I am holding back a video many of you may have already seen by now, or at least you’ve seen it on my Vimeo channel. By the way, how do you like the new 3S:FX Productions logo?
