i’ve been very productive in the last week, which has been a change of pace here at the studio. i’ve been eagerly anticipating the end of the day so i can sit down and resume making.
why am i back in production mode? what took me so long to get back into it? the answer hit me yesterday:
i occasionally watch tv shows online. and i watch a few movies each month via netflix. but i decided to switch things up, and last week my first disk of the series true blood arrived. and i cannot sit and do nothing while watching tv. if i’m going to watch 1-3 episodes in a row, i want to be productive during that time. now i’m zipping through my to-do pile, and adding to my inventory while i watch. last summer, it was buffy the vampire slayer. dexter has gotten me through many, many nights of cutting/gluing/sewing. sometimes i re-watch battlestar galactica or firefly. the wire is next.
i really wish it wasn’t tv that gets me moving. i wish it was something more intellectual, something cerebral… nope… watching consecutive episodes on the boob tube is what gets me antsy to sit down and make. apparently if i get hooked on a series, i’m more productive.
at least i’m watching quality shows, right?!
