Race Horse

"I don’t give a fuck what anybody thinks,” Iovine says. “When you’re a race horse, the reason they put blinders on these things is because if you look at the horse on the left or the right, you’re going to miss a step. That’s why the horses have blinders on. And that’s what people should have. When you’re running after something, you should not look left or right — what does this person think, what does that person think? No. Go." - Jimmy Iovine

Happy 2017!

Every year I like to post my new year's resolution(s), and peak experiences from the previous year. (I also post a picture of where I was on New Years Eve.) It's fun to go back and look at my old ones 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010. It's been an excellent way of keeping myself accountable and as a reminder that change is constant.

  1. Get my AARL technician license.
  2. Create my first edit, remix, or bootleg piece of music.
  3. Return to Burning Man.
  4. Return to Detroit.
  5. Drink tea.
  6. Be present.

Peak experiences of 2016

That Moment

The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place. - Barbara de Angelis (b. 1951)

The only thing that is important is to stay loyal to yourself, and to stay loyal to the music, and not to forget where you come from. Because you can be in a competitive situation, but I think it's also important to play fair. When people start to make people do things. Like someone is trying to cancel your party by calling the police. That's wrong. Someone is calling another person saying "Don't book this guy, because he is like this and that." That's wrong. Some person doesn't like another guy because of this person's success. That's wrong. But besides that the competitive part you know it makes people be better. I'm not against it. - Guy Gerber
