At what point do you just give up on ever having a full nights sleep again? When do you just say, this is me, if I go to bed at 11:33 like a responsible human I will be woken up at 3:55 and stay up all night. Or if I stay up until 4:10 I’ll just sleep until 8:36. Because I want to see how big these eye bags can get.

Not for your enjoyment
The psychology of trading is impossibly counter-intuitive. You buy when the stock is going up, because you think it's now safe to invest, but with this mindset you will inevitably buy the top. When it crashes you will sell disappointed and then realize your loss. Even when you make a smart move and sell for a profit, even double, triple, 10x your investment, you'll watch the price go higher and wonder what if? In this scenario a loss is easier to handle emotionally, even though your account is happier. You must trust and believe when others do not. And doubt when others believe. The only winner is the patient contrarian. The game is not for your enjoyment, it's for your account's.

Dumb Sayings I Just Said
A Skit that was running through my head
So as a sign up bonus we’ve given every new client 1 bitcoin, just as a little perk to get them excited about our products.
Wait…you gave every one of our new customers 1 bitcoin?!
Yeah, that’s what you suggested, you said “why not offer some bitcoin to get them on board?”
But one bitcoin is worth $70,000!!
One bitcoin is worth $70,000!? This funny money is worth seventy thousand dollars?! This monopoly money that you can only buy drugs with—
And a Tesla.
A Tesla? Really? $70,000?!

The Inception of Tenet
Thinking of posting a journal of stock insights, that way if any of them are right or wrong I’ll have a record proving my brilliance and or incompetence. Sometimes there are certain investments that I would make if I had the extra money or it is currently tied up in other stocks etc. and then it would be a virtual method of taking those opportunities. Michael Burry got started by posting his views like this online and then started to get a serious following because of his returns.
2020 vs 2021

2021: drunk posting without acknowledgement. I call it beyond the meta, or business as usual.

I always took the theatre of world events with a grain of salt. I don’t know what has changed, maybe the pandemic made me realize that I too was a part of that theatre. Maybe it’s just my white privilege bubble finally bursting. I’ve never felt more sorrow for humanity than in the last 12 months. So much carelessness and hate, so much disregard for one another.

On the brink of fascism
I just searched "what is happening in politics" and found this site, and although I had already read the first few articles. It's still startling to view them all in one place.
The US is on the brink of a fascist coup. This is not an alarm bell, or an exaggeration. This will happen, if not stopped by their current legal systems.

Superhero films vs Comedians
"They have blighted cinema, and also blighted culture to a degree". - Alan Moore on Superhero films
I don't completely disagree with this statement. I think an overemphasized trend in any direction can have a negative effect on culture. And superhero movies have had such a catch-all mass popularity effect on culture. Sometimes I miss watching a movie and being surprised, it is so rare now to see auteurs that stand out. Everyone is looking to be a cog in the MCU or Star Wars Universe. And many of these films are great rides. But to actually be confronted or challenged about how we process the extreme situations we currently live in has become more and more rare, especially in film. That challenge now seems to be left mostly to the comedians, Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, Tom Segura, Eric Andre, Michael Che and others. They are the only ones achieving this with an artistic method, and by that I mean to the point where they dare you to see things from their perspective. Comedians are the only ones confronting dangerous topics without fear and convincing you to look deeper at situations you may have already casted judgement on. Popular film and television no longer attempt this.

Watching High Score on Netflix, realizing how long it took for character choice to be implemented into video games in a main-stream way, here are a few of my characters of choice:
Street Fighter II: I started out with Chun-Li, moved to Guile, then it's been Ryu ever since.
Mortal Kombat: Began with Sub-Zero and eventually moved to Scorpion.
Mario Kart: I started with Toad, and eventually landed on Yoshi.

the plan pt. 2
I am going to release a new song every six-weeks.
The reasoning behind this:
1. I wait too long to put stuff out and then regret not releasing earlier.
2. How much better is a recording if sat on for many many years? How much better was that tenth mix? So many of the best records were put together in a short period of time. London Calling was recorded in two weeks (apparently). And some of the most mediocre records took way too long, see Chinese Democracy.
3. It will force me to be less precious.
4. It will force me to try new things. Experimentation and tinkering is the way to propel ourselves and society forward, see NN Taleb or Seth Godin for more my inspiration on this.
5. The six weeks timeline I got from that Basecamp dude who hates meetings, in his opinion one month is too short for small but substantial projects and multiple months is too long. Six weeks seems to be the sweet spot. It makes sense musically too. No time to wait for inspiration, before getting into the studio. Get into the studio and then be inspired. It also allows enough time to schedule with other players if needed and allows for ample time to play with mixes if song structure and recording is done within a month.
6. Announcing it here will hold me accountable and just as this blog has helped me write and expose my ideas to others often, this will hopefully help me do the same.
7. Making music is the best.
8. Wish me luck.
