TMKS #16 – The Return of The Matt Kollock Show!

I'm back!

Guys! It's been, like, six months since I've posted a new episode of The Matt Kollock Show, and I'm happy to say that I've found my podcasting groove again. Or is it that I'm just avoiding the…

Dear Little Matt

Dear Little Matt,

Hi from the future! It's me, the former you. I love that you can read and comprehend at a very high level already. That's really, really cool. Special. I know you can't tie your own shoes yet…

TMKS #9 – Gear Medication

Hi! I did another podcast! 

What Now? 

I almost forgot to do this one. But it's Monday. So I'm podcasting. Look at me go!

Here's what I cover in today's solo episode of The Matt Kollock Show

Songs From Quarantine #4 and an UPDATE!

Well, it's been quite a week, hasn't it?

Shit keeps getting realer and realer. In all the worst and best ways.

I am grateful for so many things right now. I hope you are, too.

Lots and Lots and Lots

Songs From Quarantine #1 and an Update on Stuff

Hey.

What's going on where you are? Are you still working? Do you provide an essential service? Are you dealing with kids and older folks and just trying to keep it all together? Are you worried about finances and all…

Let's Keep the Money Energy Flowing!

I get my money by doing stuff for people who get paid by other people. Those other people are quickly losing their ability to pay the people who pay me. So I've been over in here in quarantine from the…

What Are All These Guitars Doing?

I am working on my solo debut album. Well, to be precise, I am working on writing a blog post about working on my solo debut album. And here you are reading it! I think I'm writing this to prove…

I Do This Spiritual Shit for a Reason

These days I find myself working through much of my spiritual curriculum during long-ass walks through the Rio Grande Bosque. I'm a highly sensitive and painfully shy person much of the time, so I require a tremendous amount of courage…

This Is the Good Stuff Vol. 8

What a week.

Annie and I both had big work-related stuff going on. The world continued its newly preferred state of near-constant agitation. We had a houseguest – who was lovely and amazing. But still, having even the most welcome…

Ajax the Dog

When I was three, my mom and dad drove me to a nearby farm to pick out a puppy. Or maybe the little German Shepherd fellow had already been selected for me. I don't know. I remember sitting on my…

This Is the Good Stuff Vol. 4 – BEST OF 2019 EDITION

More good stuff!

Today's edition is all about the stuff I dug the most in 2019. It's a long one, so I hope you're sitting down and you have used the restroom. Do you have a nice beverage? That would…

My 2020 Vision

I have good eyes. My vision is pretty great. I do not require glasses. I can read stuff, with accuracy, from impressive, if not improbable, distances. I notice things in the periphery. Stuff like that. And I'm grateful. After all…

I Just Don't Know How to Describe My Music

You would think that by now I'd have come up with some go-to descriptors of my music. But you would be wrong. I am happy to tell people that I am a musician, songwriter and performer. But when they inevitably…

I Am Trying to Reduce My Baseline Anxiety Level

A close friend of mine endured a health scare a few years ago. It was scary and difficult to pin down. She was convinced it was a heart thing. Turns out, it was anxiety. My friend started meditating and engaging…

What Is Success?

I remember a time about 25 years ago when I told a girlfriend's mom that I would be perfectly content and fulfilled if I spent my life playing blues guitar licks in midwestern bars. At the time, that was my…
