I what's up welcome back to the EMO: DoJo, I'm johnny motions with to day's should be James All right, so today's show I'm justgoing to catch you up on what I've been up to I've recorded tons of episodesand well I have a DH and when I go back to listen to them to edit them and postthem, I get bored of them and I stop what I'm doing so. You know, like werecord an episode every weekend literally every Saturday morning andhow many have I put up? Hardly any! So that's on me so, but you know I'mlearning about myself and that's what I wanted to share with you. So anyway,I'm going to keep making podcast that just the nature of things is alwayschanging right, so work. You know I've been! I don't.Do you listen to these in backwards order or front words order, because,like today, it's June right, it's the beginning of June two thousand andtwenty one, I'm feeling all right if...

...you're listening to these from thenewest of the oldest you're, going to get this episode and if you keep goingbackwards, you're going to just listen to a guy whose mental healthdeteriorates. If you've been listening from the otherdirection forward, hey welcome to the now and wow. You got a lot of patience youjust or nuts or something weird anyway. I appreciate you either way becausewe're here now, so let me get on with what I was about to say anyway, Garygot the shingles he's doing much better he's fine. If you want to send them anemail, you can just send it to. You know signal jams at Proton, Malcom, I'msure I'd love to hear from you. I put an ad on Potit, which is a platform. It's Pod D. I t dot net potit dot net and that's a place where podcast ers can goand find guests to be on their show. So I put up an ad- and I said, hey tell meabout where you live,...

...and the two people that followedthrough happened to be from the UK they'redifferent women different. Ladies, so I'm going to put those episodes up I'llcut those into two separate episodes to you know give them the honor. Theyspent the time to talk and share their story, so I don't want to step all overtheir story with all this stuff. I'm talking about now. At any rate, thenext two episodes will be one with Kim from north Wales and the other one fromDilara from the Jurassic coast off of south west England, and I just yeah. We got into it likedeep, like I'm just curious what it's like, where other people live, wehaven't been able to travel much lately and I like the story telling bit and I'mgenuinely curious, so I tried to pull a lot out of them as far as describingwhat it was like where they lived like physically. What's the sand like on thebeach, you know how tall are the houses in your neighborhood kind of likelittle mini vacations? I guess so...

...tuning for that next Kim North Wales deLara southwest England, that's going to be super cool and of course Gary willbe back he's already back. I mean we've already recorded episodes, since hefixed his shingles and as a warning to all eugenic people. Go Get your singleshots. If you had the chicken pox when you were young, you can get theshingles now and it's fucking miserable. So on behalf of G Shack, go get you,God, damn single shots, old people. So here's the thing I discovered, andsometimes man, I'm hard headed for sure. Like I'm an aries. The Ram like we're H,that's the nature of our being is just hard headedness and I learn things thehard way. So work's going fine, it's a challenge. I don't really make as muchas I'm worth, but I have a killer opportunity that I could leverage intoback to that kind of money. Anyway, I'm...

...in the I'm in the period now we justkind of grind it out and try to hope that things work and trust the peopleyou work with. Fortunately I do trust the people I work with and work for,and I think things will work out. It's just hard right now, a lot ofexperimentation and just finding out what the best way to attack thechallenges right, but that always gives me thinking like. Am I doing the rightthing? Is this just the thing I'm doing because it's convenient, I love achallenge, but is it the right thing for me and I then always gives me just lookingaround keeping my radio OPE for other things. I can do on the side andmaintain kind of a balance life while pursuing something I'm reallypassionate about. So I came across an ad on instar talked about voice over now. It's notthe first time I've heard of voice over not by any means I mean. I went to college for televisionbroadcasting. I was in radio in high school, we had a high school radiostation and conquered called Clayton...

Valley, High School Radio or K V H S, Iguess you'd call it the edge. Ninety point five at M, so that was fun, but Inever really thought so anyway. I didn't think of voice over nowadays andmy son Nick wants to do voice over as well, because I shared with himdocumentary called. I know that voice, and so my sons are really into it aswell, but I don't know really what voice over means. I didn't know what itwas all about until I saw an ad on Instar, so I thought voice over was like doing character,characters or impressions. I D N, I don't know we're having a certain radiokind of voice or just shit. I don't have I'm not a radio guy. I don't havea radio kind of voice. I mean I I kind of do, but that's the way I actuallytalk way alive. So if you, if you run into me at the supermarket, I'm likehey that things on sale, I fucking kind of talk like that. It's weird anyway,...

...but I don't think I qualify in thatrealm at all and I definitely can't do impressions the best. I can do. Voicesand weird make weird noises, but now I didn't think that was the thing.However, the ad I saw on Instar M was, from thisgentleman called the voice over beard and I dug a little deeper. I listenedto his what called Weber you know, video. Youknow basically those things where you give away your email address and theyshow you a video of what the rest of their course program will be like well rightoff the bat and like wait a second first of all, the guys got a greatvoice and there's no doubt about that, and it came through a loud and clear.It's really weird, but also he cut off the top half of his face, like you canonly see from the tip of his nose down to his chin. You see his voice, I'msorry, you see his beard and you hear his voice. The voice over beard simpleenough right, but I'm like wait a...

...second that's right. This is voice. Wethat I'm like what way hold back up side. This is all a branding thing.That's where I came to the realization Holy Shit. I could do voice overbecause I know about branding that I've been in branding and marketing, butbranding specifically for like twenty years and like Shit. This is all aboutbranding, it seems to be. I could be wrong and join me on my journey andwe'll find out voice over work seems to be aboutbranding and being yourself. So I know about branding and I definitely feellike I'm myself, and can you read m? Yes, I can read andthen I think the last one is: Can you take direction? In other words, are youhumble enough? If someone says now that's wrong, can you try it like thisto be able to like jump on that and do the improve and try to get wherethey're going or where they're trying to go with whatever the words are right?I get all that...

...and so my fucking Ay that may be. Weshould do voice over. Let's try voice over and I'm not saying like try to bethe voice of a fucking. You know national car, commercial or nothinglike that. Not even read one of my favorite books, I'm just thinkingsimple things like whatever reading corporate video verbiage or whateverstuff, like that. I came upon this realization at the job I'm at now, soyou know how one thing kind of really does lead to the next. I came upon therealization because I drive a lot now drive like I don't know what at least athousand miles a week more like five thousand miles a month and I listen tolots of things lots of podcast and what never, but podcast is one thing. That'sthat person's voice, just talking kind of like I'm just talking now, but then I started to listen to audiobooks and then I'm like what the Fuck, Oh, myGod, every one of these audio books had to be read. Some of them are read bythe author. Most of them are not, and I...

...loved reading like in First Grade whenyou, the teacher, would like have all the students around the classroom taketurns reading. I love that and, as you can tell I just loverunning my mouth in general and as extrovert as a sound on the MikeI'm pretty introverted and can definitely take direction and be humblewhen necessary. I think I don't know it's funny. You don't knowyour blind spots because they're blind, so I'm going to give that a go. I havean account and some profile stuff set up under my real name, but I think I'm going to try it as Johne motions, except I'm going to put the dot back in after the e sunset of JohnEmotions, I'll be John e motions, kind of like wild e coyote or dug e fresh orBun e Carlos. You get it. I've explained that before, but I think it'skind of fun for the reader when they...

...read a name like John e motions andagain remember it's all about branding in this voice over thing that I'm goingto attempt. So I think it's fun for the reader's mind to connect it when theysay John e motions. Oh I get it johnny emotions anyway, I'm just fuckingaround, but the human mind does do that in people feel they have a connectionwhen they figured it out a little puzzle for them, and that's what Ithought started to think when I was talking about the guests earlier likethese are two great guests to Laura and Kim. Thank you so much for being on,and also thanks to Gary G Shack, thanks for always showing up every Saturdayand recording podcast with me, even though I don't always get them editedand put up your help in, like, like, I said, got to keep a hand. In the token your help, and just continually beingthere helps me so. However, I can repay you g shack. Let's do that. I can justhear him thinking now: Yeah Mother...

Fucker, edit an episode and put one upwith me in it Gary Gary Gary. That is the thing about this particular show alot of podcast and it drives me nuts, like back in the music business. Therewere always these kind of people out there telling people how to make a hitsong, how to write a hit song and get it may like. There was a right way anda wrong way to make a song. Well that's kind of a heated discussionright. There is definitely a formulaic way to make a song that could bepromoted enough to become a hit song in America. It's not it's not magic, because you know youwrite the verse and then you have a pre course. Then a verse and then a chorusand maybe a bridge and then another verse and maybe a guitar so low back inthe day, or you know key synthese nowadays, even course course coursethere you go there's a song, but as a musician, particularly a drummer. Ilike jamming, I like the jams I like...

...when you just go in there and you sitin a room with three or four dudes chicks. Whatever everybody knows theirinstrument and you just start playing, nobody knows what each other's going toplay. You literally having a conversation with your instruments andI think of this podcast. In that sense, that this is just a jam, we are nottrying to create a structure. That's some kind of fucking likeformulate podcast, where people know when the fucking sing along. It's notthat at all. Hence the name signal jams. It's also atwist on g shock and my eyes, TV show back in San Francisco back in the day,I don't know as a twenty O, seven or eight Gary will correct me. I'm sure we had the TV show on public accessyeah like Wayne and Garth. We had like a fucking wanes world in San Franciscocalled TV pirates. I wanted to do...

...signal pirates originally for this show, but I don't think I could get thesocials. I think you know they were. Just people had signal pirates here orwhatever. I think that's important. Whenever you create a new brand, youwant to make sure all the social handles are available and sometimesyou're forced into thinkin of new names and signal jams came about and like Ohyeah, this fucking, better name anyway, so signal jams covers what we do here.We just jam with their voices. We just talk chop it up, sometimes aboutinteresting things. Well, you know the other thing a lot of times. I don'tactually fucking edit those podcast that Gary and I do because when Ilisten back, not only it's kind of boring to me, because I've heard theconversation already, but we might kind of or not incriminate ourselves and saysome shit that I'm like. I don't think we should put that up somethinghorrible. I mean not cancel a bull. Just awkward, Weird just makes us lookstupid kind of stuff, so yeah there. It is if you want tojoin on and follow along on the...

...the voice over journey. That's going tostart now, like June, like right now, it's June, two thousand and twenty one,let's see in June of two thousand and twenty two. IfI've booked any gigs, if I've read any e books or read for a commercial oranything like that, like my diarrhea guy, I anyway so Tunin fast forward to the next episode.If you want to go on a little quick trip to the UK and after that, we'llstart putting up some more with Gary and I- and maybe I think I might havegary and go over some lines with me or critique each other on some scripts orsomething fun like that. We'll see we'll see how it goes cool then I'll.Talk to you and well you'll hear me as soon as you press the fast forward, buton to the next episode but we'll check in cap...

...and now back to the wall. A.
