Friends

– These words falter and fade into confusion as anxiety nags at and shreds all that I think I know. Third part, more talking, more thoughts recorded. .

Transcript

Friends, family, aquaintances. Just people.
How do you deal with it, them, with all of that.

When everything in your mind surrounds what I’ve talked about before; Imagination and control.
The more I think about it, the more I feel the problem.

Not always, but often enough.
To make me distant and hard to reach.
Unable to reach – myself.
It’s control. Over the imagination. Of what’s going on around me.
What do they think? What did they say? What should I say, what should I do?
What can I do, where can i go to understand what’s wrong.
It’s not them. But what’s what?
Anxiety. Is hard to deal with.
Anxiety is imagination gone wild. Gone astray. Gone sour.
I am working on it and it is working.
I can deal with little things.
But I can’t deal with these things.
These big things that

That hurt other people.

But I have no power over them.
I don’t know what they see when they see me and that I can’t deal with.
Because I have to open my eyes myself to see. I have to let go of the control.

The control that I somewhere think I have a right to.
But I don’t. Because it’s not all about me.

It’s not even remotely close to being all about me.
What I should say is:
Fuck the imagination, it’s not real.
I should say fuck the control cause it can’t be done.
I should.
I know.
I should.
And I will.
I will.

Control – What the fuck…

Control – What the fuck just happened and why should it bother me so?

Play

This is part two of this series of monologues about what it’s like to live in one’s own mind. I just talk, think,, talk more, and it makes little sense. But it helps me figure out what’s what. If I’m lucky.

Transcript

Control.

what is control

or rather, the lack of control, the feeling of powerlessness.
Not having control
Lack of control ccan be anything from not being paid what you think you deserve at work.
not getting the grade that you thought that superb essay was worth at school.
Not being able to deal with your children, or other people around you that just won’t behave the way you’d want them to.
It can be anything.
Control over.

Maybe you’re sick.
Maybe someone else is sick.
A lot of sick.
Maybe something is just going to hell.

You lose power, you lose control.
But thats… that’s the time to let go.

To let it be what it is.
You can not have control over other people.
Not in a deep way.
Not in a fundamental way.
You can influence other people and events.\
But you can’t have control.
Because…

It is what it is.
It will be what it will be.
And you can’t live that way.
Because things will happen, things will move on, people will change, whether you are there or not.

It is what it is.

But remember: When one door opens, another door invariably opens.
So, be in the moment.
Realize that you cannot change the world.
You can only change you.

And that’s ok.

Imagination – A curse, a blessing – This is where I’m at.

Imagination

I rarely talk about this. I can’t seem to make it clear in my own head, never mind explaining it so it makes sense. However, I believe that a lot of people live it. Some are worse off than me. But it is what it is. And these are my thoughts right now. Selfcentered and confused as they may be; sometimes I just need to get it on tape, as it were.

Transcript

Imagination is a funny thing, isn’t it.

Quite amazing.
As far as creativity and the occasional release of thought and emotions.

If you think about it.
This galaxy is fucking big.
But you can hold it in your mind.
And yet

it is what it is.
Things are the way they are.
It is what it is.
Imagination can also be your worst enemy.
Fucking you up big time
Anxiety and fear.

It all comes from imagining the worst.
imagining what might be, what could have been, what should have been, what was, what wasn’t.
And it’s never quite correct.

It’s

perception.

It can heal, It can destroy.

and that’s my thought of the day.
I’m trying to train my imagination to make things better, so I can feel better, so I can get better.

And it is working.
It is working.

Tutorial – A quick look at Sonar, JSonar, and the inspector

Today I rant like I often do. About nothing but everything, about what’s up and a little bit about what’s coming.

The second part is the latest Jenny K Brennan AudioBoo, where I show how to set up the inspector in Sonar and just showing the basics on how to use the track equalizer and how to find plugin parameters.

Not sure if I will continue the Studio chaotic podcast or transfer totally to Audioboo… The more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards the former. Having one feed already set up and functioning is really nothing to frown about. But for the time being, I’ll probably do some parallel podcasting. I also need to promote myself as much as I can. I need to learn to be confident. Fake it until you make it, isn’t that what they say? lol

And please leave a comment. Do you have tips and trick for audio production for the blind? Leave them here.
