My goal is to save up money to live in a van for a year with my dog. I want to travel across the Americas playing and collaborating with other artists. I draw/animate, I write stories and songs, and I do videography. Hoping to utilize these skills on the road to either make a product I'm proud of or find somewhere I can do the creative aspects of life that I love and make a living wage doing it. Right now I'm in Nashville with a broken down van, and I'm working 2 jobs 4 days a week each without a working vehicle.
Art, creativity in one of its best forms. Inventive usage of words in music are my favorite though as a songwriter. Storytelling or just nonsensical lyrics there can always be personal meaning found.
Just to make a living playing music, writing song, drawing and writing comic books that go along with my concept albums.
People who look down on others and judge people as a first reaction. I guess what I feel is most wrong with the world is too many people judge books by their covers, but then when most people actually read the content of the book they've chosen and it sucks, they just double down and say, "No this is a great book!"

Just to create something that someone might call beautiful and will help them through a hard time like the music or lyrics did for me.
Depression...anxiety...whatever you're going through, someone else has been there too, and made it out alive. It's not always going to get better, but you always have a chance to get through the shit times.
Usually drunk....I've got a lot of demons with my mom telling me I not that good or I'm bearable to listen to for maybe a song so for about the past decade I've had at least 2-3 beers before I play. Except when I have a band behind me. Then my confidence is up. Because I know if I suck my friends always sound good.
Struggle. Kill the MAINSTREAM. Basically exactly what America's Got Talent, Brittain's Got Talent, X-Factor is doing. How the music industry used to work. The people chose what was popular. Now the biggest labels control the airwaves and force one after one terribly overproduced songs down our ears that have the same sounds and sound overtone. The Music industry needs a massive face lift.
I don't know yet the upload process seems ricketty....I'll come back to this question later
I do live videos at shows for all my friend's bands. Along with taking pictures. I did over 700 videos for other bands and artists back in 2017, but that was in Chattanooga not Nashville.
A ridiculously pure voice or a savant at an instrument.
