Please Kill Me,
Greetings and happy late postings to you all out there in blog world. So as you’ve probably seen, I’m doing this post at a weird time. (I would apologize – but I really don’t want to.) Never fear. I’ve just been running myself a little ragged as of late – but I love you guys so – I had to squeeze you in.
As a lot of you have probably seen (or as I’ve been spouting off to you for months), I’ve been mostly all work and no play. Given that I’ve recently been presented with a few opportunities (of which I will share when it’s ironclad) – this is sort of necessary. How much could I really complain, though? I’ve been courting this lifestyle for months. “I didn’t come all this way just for” blah, blah, blah. You get it.
Anyway- I figured I’d share one of my “downtime habits” with you. Have you guys ever heard of Kevin Smith? Of course, you have. (I mean unless you live on Proxima B – BTW HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND ANOTHER EARTH!”) Well if you haven’t he’s the awesome guy that directed Clerks (1&2), Red State, Tusk, Cop Out ,(though I’m sure that was his least favorite of the bunch) and a ton of other pretty cool shit.
Most relevantly (to this site at least) he’s also a prolific writer and podcaster. Full disclosure -following his template of expansion, is what led me down that podcast trail as well (albeit, to much lesser success – BUT I’M WORKING ON IT DAMN IT!). In any case his#SmodCo brand is pretty fucking epic. (Do yourself a favor and just youtube his name and check out some of the videos.)
Why do I tell you this? Well, I’ll be honest – he also has these INCREDIBLE Q&A videos. In which – he describes multiple areas of the business, his own (graciously open methods and experiences) , and enough motivation to make Tony Robbins seem like a pessimist. Once again – google him and see for yourself.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been channeling his positive energy into several successful endeavors of my own (and also just whenever because it keeps me in an upbeat and productive mindset). From writers block to creative walls, to inspiration, etc – everything he does is an encouraging pat on the back to anyone and everyone with a voice they feel should be heard. So, I’m sharing that with you. (#You’reWelcome).
Well, now that I’m done shamelessly pandering to a complete stranger. Writer’s Block Podcast tomorrow, (or today depending on your side of the ocean). And Recap Saturday – I’ve actually got some good news.
See you there.
To Infinity and Beyond,
