honestly i’m so ready to move on from the place i’ve been and get back to contributing to a local music scene. got my sights set on anywhere with music, art, DJing, the whole works. considering moving back to Atlanta or beyond. Chattanooga is the last place you wanna get stuck lmao
looking at places like Asheville, Philly, Pittsburgh, Miami, Atlanta, etc. etc. etc. … Need a passport and a reason to leave the states too … our social scenes are dying with the infiltration of social media and the ilk that follows
trying to get off-grid, buy some land ? or major warehouse space ? who honestly knows at this point. . .
spent the last few years getting technical and hands-on experience building stages and whatnot for major festivals, working in theaters, etc
honestly feel like i’ve lost the capability to be creative bc of exhaustion and physical pain. navigating my transition and working in the industry i do requires me to take time off and rest, and within that time i grow SOOO restless, feeling out-of-the-loop considering my displacement from any real metropolitan area and current circumstances with being evicted and losing my car this past fall.
anyway, normal social media feels like a constant loss, and i no longer feel heard or seen. the major corporate agenda is obviously silencing the non-monetization-fetish creative population. mental and psychological brain drain …
i have had the hardest time utilizing the internet and normally abundant communication resources here in the last few years… since pandemic everyone has gone radio silent and underground or we really can’t use what facebook/instagram/tik-tok platforms we have to promote our work without paying some sort of ridiculous upfront cost: time, attention-span, etc. this new short-form media gratification psychology is sooooo damaging and brings out the accelerationist contemporary.
there’s no way to fight the spectacle outside of totally dropping off the face of the planet… and even my recent experiences being bound to the road in one form or the other invokes such old-skool notions, the greenhorn raver population has no clue what they’re missing out on…
i’m sounding old as hell
here’s to more sun salutations and mixing without headphones in this upcoming year … ✣✤✥°o｡
