Since ending Skull Toaster back in October, I’ve struggled to “producing” since.
I’ve tried making and recording music, kicking around Abelton Live. I made 40+ little diddies, but then fell off.
I was doing a video series called LATER on YouTube / podcast, but eh.
I got an Apple Pen and started posting drawings, but sort of fell off with that, too.
Then I listneed to one of my fave running podcasts, The Morning Shakeout. Today’s episode was with Nicholas Thompson, editor-in-chief of Wired magazine, and pretty quick runner.
He mentioned a small bit about being a musician, and how he’s sort of slacked on in that world because running has taken up so much of his time and energy.
And boom, there it is. I mean, I’m only running around 20 miles a week, but a lot of time and energy revolves around that effort. Time at the gym, sleeping, some weights, stretching, re-fueling…
I don’t know – since 2001 I was always producing, putting out content. Publishing interviews, reviews, videos. With Skull Toaster I was always making videos and images and questions.
After 18 years, I don’t know, maybe I’m content with not producing something all the time.
