I was interviewed recently.

0:00 Awkward Start
1:00 How I got into animation
2:35 Who inspires me (Next time, I'll actually say WHY they inspire me instead of just listing off names)
5:50 Thoughts on youtube's guidelines regarding monetization and minutes watched.
11:25 pointers for aspiring animators.
13:50 "the hole"
15:30 We talk about anime
19:25 I talk about C Students
24:08 I talk about Creative Types
29:32-33:04 I just think that's kinda important
33:44 I talk about OStW

Re-listening to it, I realized how much I stutter, how I say "uh" and "you know" every other word... and I still prefer how I talk and what I say NOW way over how I talked and what I said when I would do past interviews and podcasts. If you listen to the first podcast I ever did and then this one, you can tell how much I've matured. The first podcast I ever did, I was loud, arrogant, and overly-confident, to the point where I would always have to be the first person to give their opinion on a topic. I even nick named myself "Black Jesus" GOD I was horrible lol I feel like such a different person despite still being the same person. That "snarky jerk" persona I put on in the past was the result of me not knowing any better. Traveling, meeting people, making friends, and generally growing have done wonders for my (WARNING: I'm about to say "soul") soul. If I never met the friends I currently have and experienced everything I've experienced up til now, I'd probably be the most entitled pretentious millennial stereotype ever.

Alright, you're probably tired of me bringing that up. "We get it! You used to be a dick, and now you think you're less of a dick! Shut up about it!" At least that's what I tell myself. If you've ever seen Birdman, the voice that I have in my head is VERY similar to the one Michael Keaton had in his head. Hopefully I don't have to shoot my nose off to get rid of my voice. I'd love to take that voice and make something artistic out of it. It would put that voice to good use instead of it being a self destructive obstacle.

Anyway, check out the interview, the guy's name is Yuki, and he's awesome.
I might upload another preview of OStW, but just know that 10 (out of 50-60) pages of it is done, and you can read them right now on patreon for $3 a month until the first chapter comes out. After that, exclusive patreon content will continue.

"Ah, no one cares about the shit you make since you keep canceling your shit! I give it til page 20 that you give up and have another mental breakdown."
Again, that's just the voice in my head, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's like 90% of the comments on the teaser lol.

Either way, C ya, would love to B ya, and would really love to D ya.

You'd love to D me? You meant that in a completely non gay way, right? 
Sorry, I had to reference it. Lol.

This was inspiring, by the way. Thanks for that.

Great interview. I have the same feeling about my voice. I consider it the Male Fran Drescher.

I may not be an animator (nor planning to be one), but this podcast did give me inspiration to keep being creative, and more over, to just be myself. 

Sooo.. thanks I guess? But really though, keep doing what you do bestBeing a "legal drug dealer"! XD Made my day!

It's a interesting news. I'm always happy to hear about a friend not only evolving and getting better but being aware or it and that for such small amount of time. It usually take close to a life time before someone can look back at his past and say they changed for the better. And that's when it happens. It's simply amazing to see how much a fandom can make us change.

Well, we're not the youtube comments here, are we?
We are more civilized and supportive (I speak on behalf of a collective here)

"Either way, C ya, would love to B ya, and would really love to D ya."

Sounds damn gay ;p
