Recently I had the chance to have a video chat with Damian Kulash and Tim Nordwind from one of my favorite bands, OK Go.
We were supposed to talk for 15 minutes about an art project that I had. They’d give me ideas and we’d discuss… in a sense collaborate.
Since, as you know, I’ve always got multiple projects in the works we ended up talking about a lot of different things and it was… well, it was great. This conversation was only supposed to be 15 minutes long, it ended up being an hour.
I have no idea if watching this whole video will mean anything to you. For me, it was a great time talking with a couple of artists who I really respect and am a little star-struck by. I think I sound like an idiot, but hey…. it’s not about me.
I’m going to have two more conversations with them in the coming months. Between then and now I’m supposed to work on my project and they’re supposed to come up with suggestions about it. When those conversations happen I’ll post them as well…. maybe even edited for easier consumption, you lucky dogs.
I had planned to edit this one down, but my editing skills are not up to what I want them to be, and I wanted to get this out there for the couple of people who were interested. Also, our conversation was all over the place so it was difficult to find an editing through-line that would make sense. So this is just the raw footage.
Oh, and hopefully, for our next conversations it won’t just be a camera pointed to my laptop. My use of technology will get better. Hopefully, I won’t feel like I sound like an idiot either.
Anyway… enough pre-justifying here’s the video:
