In Conversation #84, Justin and I discuss: how he is finding an artistic outlet in plants, how technology changes the art scene, the various behaviours found in digital communities, why it’s valuable to have the ability to cold approach, finding a girl who isn’t just a cookie cutter template and the issues he was having with Patreon and DeviantArt.

I’ve been doing weekly Monday Morning Rant (MMR) videos since September 2020 and I’ve not missed a single week, until today.
The Monday Morning Rant videos have been cathartic for me, like seeing a therapist, they’re a way for me to get shit off my chest.
Last week a guy who’s been following me for over 10 years left a negative comment on my video (he deleted it but I could still read it). He’s left negative stabby comments a few times before, but he’s also left positive ones (he’s probably as bipolar as I am?!), either way I don’t create these rants to nurture negativity, and now that I’m in such a good place (mentally) I’m not sure I need to keep making these rant videos at all.
So as of today I’m not going to be making MMR vids anymore, at least not consistently (who knows when I might need to, or feel like doing one again). It’s been a good run, and served me greatly, but I can already feel a positive change by cutting down on social media (I no longer check Instagram daily, my last post was on Christmas Day).
