No, Ben, I am not interested in having that conversation. I feel bad for you, this is not a healthy approach, I think you know it, I think the rest of the people on Hubski knows it. I'm here if you want to talk. Don't need to say more than that, others have already put it in more words.

I hope Ben had a good thanksgiving yesterday. If there’s ever a happy opportunity to share Ben with the site, please do!

idgaf what the “hubskis” thinks so don’t even @ me

“stop this train” is a classic pop song

    With rare exceptions, KEXP is impossible to listen to.

...I am just not going to respond to this part because it will not be kind to you ;)

As for the rest, that is funny, because between KEXP and KBCS and WFMU I am finding multiple new artists every week, either from the general music shows or the special focus shows. So, to each their own!

I think I have spent...$50? Ever? At Guitar Center, for strings. Never bought anything else from there. Guitars have been local shops, amps have been local shops, pedals have been internet magic.

You’re right, but also have access to some amazing stations such as KEXP, KBCS, KNKX, etc. Fortunately other fantastic stations such as WFMU can be streamed online, along with countless others including some great Canadian stations. All of which are a marked improvement on Spotify and streaming services.

Shit I’ll write up a post on radio and what to put on your dial if people are interested.

I think I get an impression of what something would ideally look like and react strongly to not meeting that ideal or feeling unprepared to achieve that, and am just generally not dealing well with criticism as of late. You are right about the "potential" because another part of this has been the fact that these reactions are unpredictable to the people giving me this feedback.

oyster ya know, that was actually a part of the conversation last night. It's not even a laziness thing so much as a "crippling over-analysis of every possible outcome and scenario" thing...which does have it's benefits it certain situations, but I think is more a "using a hammer to solve every problem" mechanism right now.

Yeah, I'm in the process of listening. The problem I'm running into is, I don't really know what a person is supposed to do about that.

Have had a couple people recently tell me that perfectionist tendencies are being destructive to myself and that I need to get out of my own way. So that’s real neat and nice.

It’s entirely food and restaurant based for the county I live in, written by a former food journalist who worked for a handful of newspapers over the years.
