Hello human person!
Welcome to the Potato revolution!
Like all good root vegetables (or stem tubers to be precise), it begins underground.
First time here? Sit back, relax, and have a look around – there’s plenty to see. If informal movie reviews are your thing, baby, we’ve got you covered.
For everyone else, this potato is getting old and it’s time to evolve (…or revolve?*).
Here’s the skinny:
Waaay back when Andy and I first started this thing, the content here fluctuated between whatever we were doing with the podcast and a kind of bloggy-journal thing from me. I was also working at a video store, so movie reviews would turn up as well.
After the podcast took on a life of its own with season 3, I migrated the movie reviews and journal stuff to their own sites. Can you guess what happened next? That’s right, I just tripled my workload. How about that?
Not long after (and in conjunction with a life event or two), I became a little overwhelmed and the whole thing came crashing down around me. I’ve spent the last five years trying to work out what to do with all the pieces.
Eventually, I stopped thinking about Potato Revolution, so that I might focus on something else for a bit. Here’s the result:
We followed up the first season of The Quest Inn at the Centre of the Universe with Space Junk, a podcast cobbled together from improvised sessions with the Quest Inn cast and a handful of previously unrecorded sketches I’d written for another project.
Through the creation of Space Junk and bringing those unused sketches to life with music and sound effects, I’ve come to realise that I’ve spent the past 3 years in various states of limbo with work, study – and life in general.
Real life is real hard.
For a while there I thought I wanted to be an editor as it would parallel with my interest in writing. Working in a music store when you want to be in a band does not make you a rock star – you’re just some person that works in a music store.
I’m tired of watching from the sidelines.
Let’s hit the reset button – I feel like I should start over.
So here we are back at square one, so to speak. Is it time to erase the past or embrace it?
Follow my journey here as I find out.
From here on in, Potato Revolution is just a place for me to share doodles and bloggy thoughts as I navigate my way from one project to the next.
I hope you enjoy the ride.
