ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I talk about why I change the podcast name/artwork so much lately, and how hard it really is for me to make a cool show.

I'm Johnnye motions- and this is dailyemotion, yeah, here's a weird thing, so Istarted uploading the show to a new podcast platform called sounder,Sounder Dot FM and why I started to do that is becausesounder will transcribe your podcast. So that's a whole fine and Danty. But thenI go into the last episode I recorded and started reading what it hadtranscribed and now I'm super self conscious aboutarticulating every word, so the robot can transcribe my voice better, I'm just playing anyway welcome backI'm Johnny Motions- and this is Daly emotion, see I told you I was going todo a podcast every day, e get the clock started, so I don't gotoo long. One way I thought to make a...

...short podcast is to turn the oven on,like I'm, going to bake something and from where I sit right here when theovens hot enough, you cout start to smell it like just you smell a heat orresidual of past things cooked or I'm not sure the ovens clean, but stillsmells like anoven to me well, but turn it on. Take about twelve minutes. For me tosmell it and then I'll be done thet anyway, I'm just sed at timer, so theemotions about the election. Those are going to continue, especially as yousaw today. The fucking clown doesn't want toconcede and is trying to dig in, and is s fucking mess? I'm sorry! I don't wantto get into politics today so about this podcast and you e listening to it. Thank you like thanks for stickingaround you're, probably wondering like what the fuck is he doing. Why does hekeep changing? Well, why not, honestly it's a hobby of mineand I kind of like if he I like,...

...playing with Lego, for example, andonce you create the initial model I tend to well yeah I tend to. I tendto break all the legos, all the LEGO bricks down into one big bucket, then,and then reconstruct them into different things. Over and over again,I never go back and build the same model twice the original model, it'skind of like that with podcast, I guess. But more importantly, I was going totell you what I was trying to do with this one and what had happened over covid so much wild stuff, but withregards to podcast not long ago, I was feeling really depressed and yeah just depress an depression like ifou have depression. You know what I'm talking about it's one of those timeswhere I was like hiding out in the closet, avoiding the world. Covid waseverywhere and just barely you know s getting bybarely surviving...

...around that same time. I just randomly saw something like aninstagram for these things called pod decks whichare decks of cards with. Have you know, interesting questions on them forpodcast guests and, like that's, pretty neat as Suouly,get some more podcast guest and that ordered up those cards and like ita lot, because I am a tactle person having something on a laptop or like a touchscreen or something. My phone is not tactol enoug. For me, like sliding mymy finger on glass. Does nothing really for me holding a deck of cards. It'sreally cool anyway. Have these pod decks here and around the same time Ialso won this like free account at a place that connects podcast hosts withpodcast guests and that site is called podit dot net.

So all these things happen at the sametime and they kind of lift me out of thefunk and they inspired me to like get going, and so I watched the poddeck GuyTravis is tutorials. He's got some workshops onpodcasting and reinforced a lot of things. I knew and kind of lit a fireunder my Assa basically like well, you already know these things. Why don'tyou just do it just di't? Do it now? In that case they try to monetize podcast and thatsort of thing which is not my thing. I just want to create interesting podcast,just to be heard. You know like when you're lonely and you don't feel Hurdin your life. At least. There is some hope of that when you put your voiceinto a microphone and send it out to the rest of the world right, so freshly inspired from Bodek and podit, I thought, okay cool. Now. What should I do? I don't want to like keepdoing bipolar style, because I don't I don't know. If I have bipolar, I mean Idefinitely have those symptoms but to...

...what are they attributed to becausethey're also connected with other conditions that I have so I'm like Wiwhatever, when you start layer in so many different mental conditions ordisorders or whatnot on top of each other, it's really hard to tell whichone you have. I do know this much. I know that I've taken all of the bipolarmedications, there's about a dozen of them and they don't work I've giventhem all their. You know fair chance and that sort of thing, sometimes morethan once over easily ten years and just notworking and if you've listened to my podcast in the past or the otherepisodes. You'll know that I strongly believe in what you focus on grows and,if I'm focusing on by polar, then that's that dominates my wholeexistence after a while. So I'm like well fuck it. You know. Icreated the that brand johnny motions just to catch you up to speed on thatit as a kind of a conglomeration ofbout...

...the things I grew up with, like duggyfresh, the Rapper Bunny, Carlos, the drummer for cheap trick and WyleyCoyote, the cartoon character. They'll had E as a middle initial, and I'm likeyeah, I'M gonna I'll be Johne. What motions of like it had to have likethat. Second word after he had to be a standalone word. So, like Oh yeah, JohnEmotions cool anyway, that's a just like a thing like a stage name come upwith not a nickname, I'm not like trying to nickname myself, because thatwould be a bad nickname like. I would not want somebody else to give that oneto me anyway, put the brand together. I'm like well,fuck it. Let's, let's spread this emotions brand out and travis hadmentioned. I think in a group or a comment or something when I was askinga question. He said John Y motion just to be John.You should call yourself John Emo and like well, HMM Thars, a good ring to it,but I already have too much invested in...

...emotions, and but I'm like Emo, has acool ring to what could I do with that? And I was in the middle of something. Ohthe in you know: Martial Arg, stuff, Dojo came up and 'm like Oh yeah. Whynot call it Emodo Joe, so that was going to be the name of the actualpodcast, but it still put too much pressure onthe podcast being about something- and it's not really about something mypodcast ar just about me talking. So I had to kind of accept that the podcastis about me and whatever I feel like talking about so we' whoen, to use the name Emodojosince I've got thecom and the DOT Org and just call that the studio so I'mput together studio loosely, have a studio anyhow, where myself hat a bunchof other creators put together, podcasts and so hey. Let's call that EMO DojoI'll build that it's kind of a side project to put on the back burner, butoverall, a banner unto which I can...

...create shows like this one. So I'mgoing to call this one daily emotions, which kind of implies that I should be doing it everyday and in all honesty, that's why I called it that I called it that so Ihad to fucking get up and do something every day so daily emotions will bethis podcast yeah easy enough, keep trying to get guests, and I have a couple, but it's reallyhittand miss even with Potet of the maybe dozen people have hadcommunication with easily, I think five or six AV flaked just outright flakefor one reason or another. I guess if the reason is valid, it'snot flaking, but whatever it's hard enough to get guestdwithout people just straight up not showing up and frankly it hurts myfeelings, and I take it Hella personally, so I'm like well fuck, okay, let's...

...how about a cohost Jesi tried that,like a year ago- and that was a nightmare, so I figured I'll try itwith people. I know well cool enough, like, like my brother, Gary Shack,we've been doing podcast for a long time, so we have a separate show calledshockand emotions cool. We just he's still back in California kind of reportback and forth as I travel across America, and he says some Pretty WildShit, sometimes that I've just have to distance myself from so yeah shock andemotions, a good name for that show. But even then we'll work, ING, ot apodcast the other day. It keeps getting echo blah blah blah blah. So it turnsout the fucking guy still hasn't got a Goddamn Ethernet, cable and the adapterfor his computer, and so all of the problems we've been having are becausehe's been trying to use Wifi when we already discussed the problem is theWII so just note to self or not note to...

...others if you're trying to run apodcast, you have to plug in the fucking wires into your computer.Trying to do it over Wifi will give you shitty sound and like like here's, athing. Why are you going to buy a four hundredlar Joe Rogan, Mike, if you're just going to broadcast through the air anddiminish your sound right off the bat before it even gets into the recordingsoftware? It doesn't een, make any sense so anyway, back to shock. So we'll doshockand emotion shows frequently and we just will have guest and the paudioquality just won't be up to bar, because you know nobody else is asserious about it as me, which is fine, but this show I have full control overpretty much everything less the doorbell rinings or something so daily. Emotions will be this getting back to the guest that flake yeah. I don't know what to say aboutthat. Really, because it's not like we've alway'veknown each others from communications...

...like email, communications, back andforth, and I've worked in in business like as a professional for a long time.Some O emails are normal. There short sentences, concise, polite, effectivethey list deadlines, dates and times and phone numbers, and all that stuff,withe inother words kind of dry, there's nothing there for people to say o know this guys, a Weirdo or anythinglike that. It's not like Super Dry, so wet they say. Well, it's kind of dry.It's not! It's not like that. My point being is that when people don't take pro, you knowprojects as seriously as I do it fucks with my head and even like work workright now. I think I take the company more seriously than the people I workfor because I'm like a salesperson, but they don't buy business cards or youknow they don't they have no marketing. Nobody even knows the product that theymake exists, and so I'm out there like...

...making hoodies and tshirts and coolbusiness guards and stuff, and I don't think they appreciate it. So that's a weird conundrum, isn't it. Ican't find people that arwas interested in my projects as I am and I'm moreinterested in other people's projects than they are. I don't know it's a fucking conundrumanyway, thanks for letting me get that off my chest and I guess, if you're going throughsimilar things and feel similar frustrations jest, you know, don't letthe bastards get you down, don't let the bestes get you down. I don't havetoco Wen your had I sound maet down...

...and now back to the wall.
