Ahh, SO much to talk about! We've finally recorded and rendered our first podcast! Next step is to set up a basic site so we can host the audio files. From there, we're going to create a video with images for some YouTube content. We'll be doing the best we can to pump out good content as two people who work full-time "normie" jobs and have other obligations as well. With that said, we are very much willing to commission talented people from the community to help put things together!
We are in the market for:
A cartoonist /animator / illustrator for our "Storytellers" series premiere. This will start as a 10-12 episode series, though we hope to record and animate many more down the road. The title is also a book I'm working on, but in the meantime I would LOVE to create a series. The idea is pretty basic: People we know telling a story (funny, sad, dangerous, scary, etc.) that they think people may want to (or need to) hear. General YouTube guidelines must be followed, but the subject can be anything.
Storytellers! See above and feel free to post or write us with any questions if you'd like to consider telling us (and subsequently the world) a story. You may absolutely tell the story anonymously OR opt to have one of us narrate it for you.
Good writers seem hard to come by from mainstream outlets these days. I think we can all agree there's a lot of Buzzfeed-esque material out there. We want to work with people that can get a little bit deeper than giving us a list of "23 Ways to Introduce Your Man to Anal This Summer". Yikes.
In other news, Lexi is making great progress on finishing his album, Living In Contradiction. The first single called "Universe 25" will be premiered on our bandcamp site. We just received the artwork for the album cover from the artist we hired and WOW! We can't fucking wait to release this.
I've picked up a copy of The Sync Book, which features 26 authors on the subject of synchronicity. It's a very cool concept for a book and an excellent read for anyone who's heard of the subject but is a little unfamiliar (like me!). We will be writing our own sync pieces after we finish this book. Maybe we'll even end up publishing them!
Creativity is flowin' all around us and we love it. We've encountered some incredibly inspiring people lately, both in meatspace and the virtual world. Now that we've deleted our Facebooks and are more mindful of when we're giving into consumerism, we've fully accepted the fact that we simply don't want to ride along with the rest of societal herd. And in doing so we've found that we have so much potential that's been lurking within, just waiting for the opportunity to come out and introduce itself.
