I’m just sitting here at my desk, thinking about things while I’m waiting on Da Vinci Resolve to export some video from today.
I’ve been thinking about how I’d like to start working on making my office a little more audio friendly, but I’m not sure where to start. My office is where I stream, sometimes do some photography, and will occasionally record audio for videos, or even podcasts. If you’ve seen any of my streams, you’ve probably heard some of the echo that goes on in this room. Other than my desks, the room is very empty, overall. So, putting up some aesthetically pleasing audio paneling wouldn’t be completely out of the question. I am very much open to suggestions, if anyone has any.
On top of that, I’m thinking about how I kind of want to take a chance at being a Voice Over Artist. Again, if you’ve been watching my streams, I clearly enjoy reading things off and doing silly voices. That’s just me. I’m the kind of guy that likes to read off the billboards as they’re going down the interstate. I would naturally need some sort of separate setup for that, since it needs to be 100% perfect, but I’m looking into how to kind of get my foot in the door.
I also just want to photograph a vehicle. I don’t know how exactly to say this, but. I miss it. It’s one of the things I’ve been missing this whole time. I’m an automotive junkie, in a way. Naturally, I could just go out and shoot my car or Sarah’s car. Easy peasy. But I’d love the kitted out, mods from top to bottom, blood sweat and tears under the hood builds. I’m thinking I might give away a free photo shoot. Of course, you’d have to either get me to you, or the vehicle to me (or the shooting location, rather), but that would be discussed later. Stay tuned for details on my official photography Instagram: Photic Media
PODCASTS! That’s right, I’ve done them a time or two. Well, Sarah and I have been talking, and it’s probably high time for us to bring back Let’s See a Movie. Especially now that we have all the time in the world to watch movies and such. It’s going to be the “At Home” edition, so we’ll be watching some older movies, and won’t be able to comment on any of the brand new movies or anything, buuuuuut, it’ll still be the same sort of fun you know and love. I’m also still in consideration of bringing the SpecialKolin Podcast back, for old time’s sake, but I’m still not sure what it looks like anymore. I suppose I could just do it and figure it out from there, but I want it to be worth while. Then again… ah… well… this post will just turn into me arguing with myself. It’ll happen, just give it some time.
Streams! I’m going to do an official post later, but streams are going well! I’m enjoying them a lot. I’m thinking I might dial them back a little bit, since I’m feeling super exhausted at the end of every day. So, we’re going to go from eight hours every day to six. I’m also considering taking Wednesdays off to make that a day to take care of other things, like podcasts and such. I legitimately feel like I’ve been working more since I’ve been furloughed, so I’d like to make sure that I still have a little bit of me time. Granted, I’m used to 12-hour days, but two of those hours are typically spent 100% alone in my car driving to and from work. I legitimately miss that, so I’m going to try to emulate that coming up. For me. You know.
Another thing, and I swear this is the last thing on my mind: support things! I uhh… don’t know exactly how to word this, and I know it’s probably difficult for many people to talk about it. I’m doing a lot of things in my life right now for free. I don’t exactly like the idea of putting something I do behind a pay wall, especially during this difficult times. That being said… I’m working on reassembling my Patreon, I have a photo gallery you can buy prints from, my Twitch channels now accepts subscriptions and cheering with Bits, and …you know… I am for hire to do photography and videography work (even if it’s just editing) as well as marketing things. I don’t know where I’m going with this… I’m probably going to have a more detailed thing put together in the near future.
I love you all. You folks have been nothing but amazing human beings. I’m looking forward to expanding the creation of things, and I continue to look forward to the future.
Thank you; for watching, listening, reading, chatting, or just hitting the like or retweet button. I literally couldn’t do this without you all.
