music would be so boring if every song sounded the same. artists would be so boring if they all made the same work. why do designers repeat each other? what does your voice sound like?

i was living in new york when mac miller passed. it was september, 2018. i had got sober in july. i remember thinking to myself, like, damn, meetings tonight are gonna be intense. i was living in bed-stuy and i got on the train to manhattan. headphones in. just wanted to listen to swimming. got off somewhere and just started walking. through the village and all that. that feeling still sits with me. crying, grey weather, really in my feelings.

my head was mostly down but there was this moment i picked it up to cross the street. when i looked up -- i saw alan cumming. he was wearing a very tight white tee and black leather pants. the silhouette of his nipples was perfectly framed.

what an inopportune time to run into alan cumming. i wondered if he knew, what that meant to him if he did. there’s a specific obsurdity to moments.

the night beto dropped out, i couldn’t sleep. i ended up watching school of rock on tv and then orange county came on. somewhere in the middle of that film, i feel asleep and i woke up near the end when pete yorn’s song “lose you” came on. i remember it being 5 in the morning and feeling very confused.

08:29A 07.19.20 SUN
i don’t miss new york in the summer. i miss it in the winter. i miss it when i think about how the cold bites in early january. i miss the way my glasses fog up when i come inside milk and pull for a cup of coffee. i miss it when waverly diner puts the same christmas album on repeat and serves pancakes with syrup and strawberries on the side. i miss seeing my friends in big puffy jackets. the city is so alone, i miss it when the wood floors in the old buildings creek. i miss aíne’s art and the way the street light illuminates its beauty. i miss my friends who don’t even miss me. i miss healthway. that night i was so sick and i had to go on tv the next day and they cut up some ginger root and threw it in the blender and saved my voice. i miss the way new york took care of me.

i’ve bombed two interviews in my life. one was with a broadway theatre company, building ads in quark, and the other was for facebook. at the time, i wanted nothing more than to be employed at facebook. i felt it would solve my problems, would make me feel successful. looking back, i’m so thankful i bombed it. i’m so thankful my nerves got the best of me. i’m so thankful they didn’t think i was good enough. i’m so thankful for the feeling of buying peanut butter and bread at a 7/11 because i couldn’t afford the food in the hotel they put me up in. i’m so thankful i found my own path.

i’m not sure a school will ever have me give a commencement speech, but i think i know what i’d say if the day were to come. keep going. when i look back on my work, the work of folks i admired, and the work of folks around me, the thing that separates everyone is who kept going and who stopped.

some artists that i admire with my entire heart stopped at that one cool thing they made. some artists that i didn’t really vibe with kept going and now i vibe with them because i understand their impulse.

if you want to do great work, just keep going. it really is that simple.

another rainy morning and i don’t mind a thing. i’ve won four games in a row on chess dot com and it feels good. i’m not a good chess player. i was just playing chess players who are worse than me. i’m obessed with the strategy of chess. it’s a game of details. who can see the most details clearer? that’s pretty much chess. a few games back, i was playing against a person in ireland who was desperately trying to pin my queen on one side of the board without realizing i was only a couple moves away from putting them in checkmate. details. it’s all in the details. i hope you have a good day!

Have you listened to the Wallows album? It’s too good for you not to listen. It’s called “Nothing Happens” and it’s about all the things we think are really important in our teens and early ‘20s and how in the end, even though everything happened, it’s sort of like nothing happened.

Tchade Blake, who mixed all of Sheryl Crow’s songs, mixed it -- so it has this really gritty/polished ‘90s indie pop feel to it.
