I stayed away from Reddit for a while. A fan of the work of 4chan but not one to use it, I saw Reddit as having all the bite of 4chan without the sophisticated bar of entry- an internet version of Nyquil: too easy to get for such a crude high. This was, of course, the opinion of an idiot.
REDDIT SHOULD BE LOVED AS ANY OTHER INTERNET FORUM. One cannot blam the people for having a hard time communicating. Get a bunch of people in any room and someone is going to get confused and frustrated at some point.
I have learned not just how to meet people in real life since I first experienced the shitty feeling of unwarranted hate on Reddit 4 years ago BUT this year I learned how to meet people on the internet.
Meeting people on a format as free as the internet can be hard. It is hard to be polite and formal in a world that feels like the wild west, but getting to work with the people I have and the internet people I have met has taught me the internet is a wonderful place.
BUT everyone should have their own terms. I have found that a home, a place to rest is alway the key to comfort, even in a symbolic world like the internet. “Every Artist needs their own room.” I plan on attacking and hanging out in reddit much more because I have a place to retreat to r/BrooklynPodcasters
I made this in a day (puppets and all) based on a recording from an open mic. There should be a blog post about my process of crowd work in the next days.
In this ep we hit all the hard realities of our fantasies. It’s recorded from Podstravaganza at KidSuper fashion store: a 5 hour recording session!
I LIED! So this is one of the Mic Tests.
These are puppet versions of sketches that I make with a mic I carry with me everywhere.
I love this sketch. We made the audio after a bit of coaching at The KidSuper Clothing store in BK.
ALSO I will be posting a blog post about why I have been making puppets for these audio recordings.
