I think of my notebooks as a cognitive prosthetic. I don’t always have time to think about everything in the depth that I want to, so I put it on paper and it helps me kind of work through it later.
That’s Ian. Dad, drummer, writer, and half-baked boy scout. A Mortified performer and former teacher’s pet, Ian stopped by to chat about his proprietary blend of absurdism and anonymity.
Check out his band, Ain’t Nothins album, “No Regerts,” on Instagram, iTunes, and Spotify. He also develops products like scented powders and lip gloss for his wife and mother-in-law’s sex doll company, Real Love Sex Dolls (as discussed in Episode 6). They also work for humans!
Ian’s music tips: If your song isn’t long enough, just say more words! Don’t wait to learn an instrument as an adult like he did (but it’s possible!). Play a metronome in the car and practice one-handed exercises while you drive. Are you fidgety? Drums might be for you!
Question of the Week: Is there a craft, performance, or activity that you have been waiting to try or always wanted to try? Tell us on Instagram and Twitter using #chattycrafties or answer our query posts. We’d love to discuss it on next week’s episode!
