Tonight on Jake's Showcase https://youtube.com/JakesShowcase I have just released "Jake Johnston - "I Can't Keep My Eyes Off of You" https://youtu.be/sT7sqHsPj3s currently at 71 Views 9 Likes 4 Dislikes. It was the 5th of 5 takes with spotlight, lamp and overhead lighting.
song I'll admit could have used more practice. The intention was to do a
few takes the first day and then maybe listen to it and in a couple of
days do a few more takes, learn from the mistakes try to improve where I
could and then with about 15 takes pick the best one. However, this
fifth take I thought was half decently done and I really lost the energy
to do it again and again those couple days later. I thought this was
You have to remember I am limited in my ability to
record and synchronize music to any way shape or form to the point of my
full satisfaction because I do not have a music studio, proper
microphones, additional instruments, synthesizers, voice tuners and all
the other wide variety of musical editing equipment, I have a guitar,
stung upside down mind you, and a voice, and and a microphone attached
to my $256 almost 5 year old Kodak Playsport camera.
doesn't preclude me from practicing again and again and again and
pulling off a better performance on a single shot video, however you do
have to realize the frustration of recognizing the reality of "how much
better can you actually make it" given my constraints and then you deal
with the drop in energy that I experienced and you might understand why I
went with this.
I found out yesterday I did not get hired at a
local call center which was very disappointing because I had the
experience, it was something I was good at, it was safe, it paid well
for the city I live in and I had a friend with a good reputation and who
had been given a promotion on the inside who had recommended and
vouched for me. It was a real shot to the loins....and the reason....for
real....when they saw and interviewed me they realized I was Jake
Johnston from Jake's Showcase. No way not him.
It's hard with you
dare to dream, dare to be different to blend into typical corporate
culture. You want something more, something different something better
and corporations want the same. They want basic statistics, they don't
want noise, they don't want standout, they don't want controversy. They
want the same.
They don't even want potential, noise, standouts or controversy. Making noise in this town is your death null.
What a poor guy wants to be rich.....well that won't work.....na, find another candidate for me.
I still do have one major job in que but otherwise back to looking tomorrow.
think big picture if I don't get that big big job it's becoming more
and more likely that this will be my life. YouTube, performance,
entrepreneurship. Really it already is my life and always will be to
some extent because I've chosen the internet as my outlet and that lives
forever. In fact it would be pretty cool, I just make videos....oh yeah
and I have enough money and some thank you.
Who knows it's a wild life.
Valentines week is next week and my truest love, I think of you darling.
Have a Wonderful Day or Night Fans,
