I bought a microphone from some guy off Craigslist a while ago so I could talk some shit on the internet. I record myself and upload it on to youtube for everybody but mostly for nobody to hear. I got my first comment the other day.
“ur fucking stupid”
Youtube commenters are the bottom of the barrel on the internet. They are usually 15 year olds who think they are at their pinnacle of intelligence. They are not very nice either. I’m glad I could piss someone off. It’s not good art if it doesn’t make you feel something.
Although hardly anyone listens to my recordings, I enjoy making them. They can be called podcasts or shows but in essence it’s just me talking to myself. It’s the audio version of blogging. My recordings are somewhat similar to my blog posts except less censored, less depressing, less edited and probably more offensive. Sometimes I’ll just turn it on and start yapping and go wherever it takes me. It’s kind of awkward at first even though no one is in the room watching you. They say public speaking is one of the biggest fears people have and that kind of plays into it. In your head you think you’re on stage being judged.
Aside from entertaining myself, recording myself will serve as part of a good memoir for anyone who will care in the future. They’ll get to hear my intimate thoughts through my unadulterated 35 year old voice. If you have people you think that will care about you in the future, you may want to do your own recordings. If you think there will be no one who will give a shit about you then at least you might want to hear your younger self ramble.
If you are interested and have any questions with recording yourself, let me know.
