Last night I planted some iceplant Paul gave me in my parents backyard. It’s always good to plant on the side.
This morning started with a quick look into Samuel Beckett and three Jays. JK, not marijuana but James Joyce, and Jane Austin.
Quick nugs from School of life and my own understanding:
likes to write around the word 'perhaps' not specific, allowing viewer to make it specific on their own
Everyday losers are just as epic and interesting as rich / heroes / heroines. (I luv this) Captured profound complexity in the stream of consciousness of normal characters
Don't marry / live with too little or too much money Make better decisions People whom marry for material gain are not evil just lost and need some guidance
Today marks the first officially day of a new job hunt. Poliwat is going to take a little longer because of the broken Teensy board setbacks. I ordered it to Jack’s house thinking I would move there Wednesday, but just talked to him and his mom and him are going to a wedding this weekend so this weekend would work better. Which works better for me and my boys!(BFFS Chad and Kevin).
Looking at the calendar, I will set a hardline date for January 1st to being the first day of my adventures with Poliwat. The entire point of the rig is to use it in multiple contexts. It’s a mobile composition rig, catered to creating in nature. Poliwat’s going to require a lot of traveling. Even if I am dead broke and have to resort to being a poor transient, I will still go around and build my sound map. Bridges and libraries will always be free. Besides, an global adventure in your twenties is the compound advice from a large pool of old people’s advice I’ve received. Apparently it’s the thing to do. I have been training hard daily because the road will require me to be in peak physical shape. Getting used to not eating much and working to the point of exhaustion is the norm. It’s nice practicing that mindset here in my parent’s house because I feel like I can push harder than ever since there’s a safety net here.
Now I have some time to visit another family member Marion. We’re going to hangout in her garden :). She’s always been a second mom to me, I look forward to it!
But today needs to see some serious hustle. I am so broke, even my broke friends are telling me I’m broke. The city is going to be expensive.
I know I’d rather be an employer over employee, but as it stands I am clueless as to the art of making money with my art. I’m not good at it because it isn’t the focus. My sole focus is to create pieces of value. As we can see from every successful human ever, any job helps will help with art. That’s because it roots you closer to real people in real life, like living in some Orwellian patriarchal culturally suppressed big Miyazaki pig of a police state, where money supersedes every domain.
Anyways today is a sad day because I’m posting Zelda and my switch on Craiglist to pay for the move. I stormed the castle last night and beat Calamity Ganon for the first time on Master Quest last night, and now have to move on. When the funds come back, I look forward to getting it again.
Job hunt day 1 begins

Mastery of audio encompasses knowing at least a small amount about everything. Audio gets more reward with context to all other moving parts.

Michael Betts, the whole package
Ahahaha I’m having some fun applying to jobs in the city. I know I’d rather do what I love with Poliw.at but it is going to take more time in order to get working, and I need to be working for my own sanity. The caveat is that I will only work jobs I believe in, and are helpful for my career. Luckily the career of producer is inclusive of all positions - from janitor to screenwriter.
My friend Britney works at youtube so I’m applying there for kicks, although I’d like to move away from writing code because that lifestyle gives me stress and anxiety. The poliw.at codebase is the opposite because not only am I personally invested in the project, the code revolves around audio so its anxiety-free.
Today about 800+ Confucious canoes and hundreds of arm exercises in - relentless rigor until the day I die. I’m an addict that’s going to put this mind to good use. Should I include that on my resume? 😉
Anyways this entire site poliwat will be on every application I submit, because if they don’t like this then I don’t want to work with them.
Full transparency freaks people out, but it’s the future. That’s why a couple of those ‘48 laws of power’ are bogus - there are newer alternative strategies. Robert Greene was on the right track with the item of confusing your enemies with kindness, and there are other strategies in the same light that are more effective than crap like don’t put too much trust in friends.
Speaking of which Chad and Kevin will help me move!! I really look forward to it now because it has become undeniably a good adventure.
K writing a new resume in illustrator while bumping DEJA MOODOO, a show by Rocket Radio 🔥-1.m4a! They are bay area podcast station that has a recent open position for an audio engineer 🙏🏽🙃 So lit.

Had a very fun time with Chad but what the fuck I should’ve finished my portfolio site, sent brit my resume, and apply to that audio engineer thing. I’ll see what I can do now but I’m beat….. but tomorrow Chad and I will finish up something we started tonight and it is tooooooooo fun.
Also made this from the hackathon song portfolio video:

Got 30 minutes of fresh piano tape in the living room. I played some colorful chords then started messing with them and bouncing them as samples. Have 12 piano samples to mess with but my workflow was bad and I could feel it. I need to organize my shit! I had such better workflow last month.
I was editing bonnie’s letter tape again and I’m trying to make it more musical.
