Live Karaoke + 159 Manning 2014 x2

I recorded a piano version of Genuwine’s song Pony the other day. If it’s not already obvious, I’m not aspiring to be “rich” or “famous” with my music, I’m just aspiring towards being “good” and “talented”. I will keep at it and mayyyyybeeee sommmmmeedayyyyyyy other people will enjoy the stuff I do. In the meantime I will bask in my mediocrity, FTW!!

I was actually talking to someone about that earlier this week, how drawing was my more natural talent when I was a kid. I was always the best or one of the best drawers in my class/school growing up, but I sort of lost interest around 15 or 16 because even though I was good compared to my classmates, I felt like I wasn’t getting any better no matter how much time I put into it. I’d look at my favorite illustrators and think “I’m never going to be as good as them so why bother?”. With music I don’t compare myself to anyone else. I am trying and putting an honest effort into it, and want to be better than I am, but I’m not afraid of sucking or being better or worse than anyone else. I just like doing it. Me yesterday is my only competition.
