How have you been? It's been a while, hasn't it? Unless you are from the future, which is probably the case, and it hasn't been long at all. Regardless of all considerations for the fabric of space-time, I hope you are doing all right. I am doing all right, too. I made this episode of the podcast and I think it's a good one. I hope you like it, too.
I've Been Thinking...
Episode 12 of The Matt Kollock Show picks up more or less right where the last one left off. It's sort of like when the next season of a TV show resumes action immediately following the action that concluded the previous season. Except in real life people have been enjoying meals and losing hair and starting families and evolving their priorities and shit like that. Remember in LOST season five's premiere episode when Sawyer and Juliet are on the beach and it's, like, minutes after the action of the season four finale took place and Sawyer is visibly 20 pounds or so heavier? This episode will is kind of like that in some ways.
This episode is mostly not like that, though. It is about how I plan to go forward as a musician and podcaster seeking fame and fortune. I wonder if fame and fortune are really what it's all about.
This episode explores my thoughts with regard to becoming powerful as a creator of things in a world and a system that usually exploits and harms Black people attempting to do the same thing. How can I do what I'm doing in way that overrides the dominant model and creates the possibility of standing in power with Black artists?
So that's what I talk about in this one. I feel like I did all right. I think you may become stimulated by what I have to say. So yeah.
I had a lot of notes for this episode and I only covered about half of them. So I'm going to do another episode later this week. Nice! That'll be episode 13.
I'm going to put out a bonus episode later this week, too. That one will be available on my Patreon page for subscribers at the $5 level and above. It joins two other Patreon-only bonus episodes over there. So if you need to pump more of The Matt Kollock Show into your system for some reason, five bucks gets you what you need.
I'll be putting out new music soon, too, so keep your ear to wherever you hear about new music. Following me on Spotify is one cool way to stay informed about such things. Cool!
Thanks, guys! I'll see you next time. And next time is gonna be soon.
