Finally decided I’m taking an Amtrak in December to Indiana instead of a Greyhound bus. I was initially gonna take a Greyhound bus, but it’s fucking expensive for the shitty experience, I’d be seated next to crackheads and dudes who just got out of prison, and all of that kind of shit, so I figured I’d throw the extra cash at it and yeah.
Part of the fun of why I’m going down there is to hang out with my friends who produce beats like I do, and one of the things we’re going to do is pool together money in a hat, like $5 or so from each of us, every night, and then sit around, and see who can make the most interesting instrumental in 30 minutes, to gain everything that’s in the hat.
I also plan on making a song for each state I travel through on my way, and then maybe release it as a free EP or something. I don’t know. It’s all just brainstorming, but you’d honestly be really surprised by just how creative you can get when you’re brought outside of your typical environment. I’m just gonna be a guy off to Indiana, making music on the way there, making music there, and making music on the way back, all the while hanging out with some of my best buds on this earth.
I’m going through a lot of shit right now, like a really rough break-up, and I get pretty fuckin’ beta about it, but I gotta keep my head up. It feels like… Even if there aren’t better times ahead, there’s more interesting times ahead, and I have to seize the moment, if anything, for the boy I was when I joined these forums just shy of ten years ago. I find myself thinking “I don’t think I can/want to do this… But that boy wanted to” and I push onward, because what else can I do? Gotta do my best to never get tired.
