Silence is Sterile

There’s a lot to be said for quality control. For doing our utmost to avoid lending support to something stupid or wicked.

This noble inclination is however too often twisted into silence.

Not a deep contemplative silence or even a sexy silence but good old fashioned boring silence. The kind of silence that’s sterile. The sort of silence that leads you to constantly complain or feel like complaining about being bored.

For such moments I’d suggest asking yourself the following question: How will I ever have anything interesting to say if I never say anything?

It’s a trick that works for me.

When I’m feeling perfectionist, or insecure, or just plain lazy. I remind myself that perfect trembling lethargy is really really dull and no way to make a fun Vlog and definitely no way to finish writing a novel.

Sure there’s a lot of noise out there. A lot of terrible stuff, heck you may have made some of that terrible stuff, I’ve made some terrible stuff but is it really that terrible? If you were being at least somewhat earnest in your attempt to make art or philosophy then I doubt it was all that bad.

And if it was…

If after an honest review and careful self examination you truly find yourself feeling like a waste of bandwidth….go watch a Logan Paul video.

I welcome all feedback on this sort of mini essay/blog and really anything I happen to post on this here journal. So go on, if you feel so inclined, tell me if constantly handcuffing yourself to ideas of someday being good enough to create something is proving productive.

P.S.  I couldn’t resist…spreading…the good word of Bargeld
