Is anyone stealing your time? Are you being robbed?
Let me start off by saying I really like this song by Gucci Mane:
If you’ve ended up on this website, it’s because you know you’ve been robbed. You’ve been robbed of your time, attention, effort, and energy. It was stolen by a glowing screen. A glowing rectangle robbed you.
You were a passive consumer of mindless entertainment.
But that phase can end. You can end it.
“It’s a beautiful day – someone gon’ get robbed.” -Guwop
At some point you outgrow it. At some point, your life is better and busier than what some forum or silly youtube videos can offer you.
At some point, you will outgrow porn addiction too. It takes years of rewiring. At age 25, I’m about 5 years into the NoFap and NoSurf lifestyle. I used to be neurotic with rules. I used to be neurotic with streaks. Those details are important for the first few years, but they slowly become distractions. They hold you back and confuse you. They steal your attention.
Elisha Long makes very good content. He has the right mindset.
He has the right vibe.
Let’s make shit happen.
Fight apathy. Fight nihilism.
Keep in mind I started the MoonChimps brand on September 22, 2016,
October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June, and now half of July.
Over nine months of building. Now we are transitioning from hand-drawn comics to little animations. Little animated clips.
For the first month of learning animation, I felt powerless. Every week, I felt useless. Every day, I felt incompetent. Every day, I felt like I wasn’t doing my best. I felt like I was letting people down. I felt like I wasn’t pulling my weight.
Can I show you the three second clip I made this morning?
That clip was pretty easy to make. I made it this morning just putzing around. Three months ago, it wasn’t possible. But it is very significant. It means we are on the cusp of making our short animated clips. I have a three-hour thing on Friday, but aside from that, I basically have 4 days off work.
4 days to work on MoonChimps. Well, three and a half now. It’s almost 1pm now.
So these animations will be coming soon.
Our app programmer took two Concerta pills yesterday. He worked on the game app from 3pm to 8:44am. That’s over 17 hours.
We motivate each other. We try to keep up to each other’s insane pace.
I don’t care about money. I don’t care about web traffic. I don’t care about views.
I know if I make 500 animations, the Moon Chimps brand will be big-enough. It’s an undeniable strategy. It’s how Riff Raff went from freestyling in cars to making 4 million dollars last year.
None of that wiriting really went together but I just felt like writing a bunch. It helps clear my head sometimes.
Have fun out there in Brick&Mortar Land,
