For Realsies

I want what we do to be the best of our ability.

In no way, shape, or form would I try to pass as a writer. Reading that, you may be asking yourself, why in the hell are you writing then? It’s a fair question. One I ask myself every time I start typing.

For those of you that know me, you know I rarely shut up. You know my brain generally goes ninety miles per hour, and my mouth doesn’t always keep up. My brain does the same here as it does when I’m podcasting or in a normal conversation. The difference here is I can go back and reword my thoughts. Express them to the best of my ability, unlike American Zero, where I spew non-stop verbal diarrhea.

That’s not a slight on my show or me. I’m very self-aware when it comes to the idiocracy of what I say on that show. Quite often, I come off as a buffoon. I know I misspeak and get things wrong. I rarely choose to edit things like that out of the show. If I did, it would almost certainly ruin the show. It would affect the natural flow of our conversation.

Don’t get me wrong. I, without a doubt, edit from time to time. When I do, it drives me nuts. There are times I have no choice but to make intricate cuts that interrupt the flow. It may seem ridiculous, but I actually stress out over these things.

“Why?” you ask. I want what we do to be the best of our ability. I’ll accept that we may not be the best at what we do. Yet, I will not take us putting out something that isn’t the best we can do for the audience. I don’t care if that audience is only my friends and family. I don’t care if that audience is one person or a million.

What I’m getting at here is that you have not been getting our best. There has been no consistency in our release schedule, and often I’m unprepared for the show. Moving forward, I aim to fix that. It’s going to take work and a lot of time. Expect more, expect the best.

If you made it this far.
