Creative Drive Podcast #25: When Pretty Plans Break.

Hi folks!

I didn’t get to come home for lunch today so this episode had to happen on the go! This is Take 2 of a conversation with myself about patience, as the plans are reinvented.

It was a pretty long day, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Much love,

j

Are you a working class creative? I’d love to know how you make creativity work with a dayjob!

OKA33 – The Butchering Art, Christmas Movies, New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year folks!

On this go round, we discuss The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris. An insanely savage book about Joseph lister and the quest to change Victorian medicine. Brought to you by Maddie!

We thought we’d share some thoughts on our favorite Christmas Movies of days past as well as some Christmas favorites from this year. Recent titles include NoelleThe Christmas Chronicles, and old favorites such as Home Alone, The Santa Clause, and more!

Of course, this being an inbetween episode, we’d like to share some of our own New Year Resolutions, as well as to say THANK YOU, to all of you who’ve taken time to listen and support this fun project of ours.

Much love to you all and happy 2020!!!

CD19 – An Anecdote about Fatherhood, Handing Down Creativity, and Status Report

You don’t know how much you keep from people until you start speaking clearly and honestly, out in the open. Podcasting is teaching me to reach out and communicate the way I have always wanted to do. Listening back to this episode I recorded prior to the holiday, I saw myself turning a corner.

  • I wanted to share with you the moment I knew I would be an artist, like my dad.
  • I wanted to share with you my thoughts on handing down creativity to our children, like an inheritance.
  • I want to share with you some things I’ve been up to creatively, and what’s around the riverbend (without the Disney Princess song and dance, or maybe there will be a song and dance: I was a theater major, after all…).

This was another breakthrough episode for me and the cats during lunchtime podcasting. I hope you enjoy it.

Much love,

j

Do.

Just checking in to let you all know I’ll be podcasting tomorrow at lunch about what’s working, and a lesson in passing on art through the generations.

However, as I wait for a few clips to download from my cloud, I look back on today with pride as a great example of what I haven’t been doing in recent years: Today was a day of effort and productivity, even if I don’t see it right now.

  • Made it through work today. Will go back to my priority list and solve some problems and paperwork. I will do better tomorrow.
  • Spent some time coloring with my son tonight, and he has chosen to keep my red pen as his own. I am proud.
  • Made time to read.
  • Made time to journal.
  • Recorded with Madd and edited this week’s great episode of Our Kid’s Asleep about Disney Plus and Schitt’s Creek.

I’m making a point of not staying up late more than once a week, if necessary. This is my freebie night, I can do some video editing on my latest collaboration with Wyoming Dance Arts and call it a night. There is more time to be found. Just do.

Be well this week, and I’ll post soon.

Much love,

j

Mystery Project, coming soon.

OKA30 – Ocean’s Eleven, Uplifting News Recap, Concert Plans

Hi all!

Here’s a weekday talk about all kinds of stuff:

How about a throwback to the early 2000s chatting about Steven Soderbergh’s superior remake of Ocean’s Eleven. We spoil the hell out of this one, so if you haven’t seen a 20+ year old film, we apologize.

We bring back the uplifting news headline and bring you some well needed joy around these parts!

And raving about a new concert opportunity, can’t wait! Thanks for joining us as we continue our experiment!

Much love,

J&M

CD18 – My Creative Streamlining Begins, My Cats, and Acceptance

Thursday Lunch is for Podcasting! What’s working so far!

Some things that are working in my quest to be a better working-class creative, and how I was able to make progress on short-form content. Priorities, priorities, priorities.

Learning to be upfront about where I’m falling short, and seeing results from Bullet Journaling.

And noisy cats that I love so much. Make art, make haste.
