"How To Faux" Video/DVD Publishing Rant

(WARNING RANT AHEAD) The Hero’s Journey of DVD Publishing   (WARNING RANT AHEAD)

Well I finally was able to fire off the email newsletter to notify everyone  about my new video offerings listings and this is where we will find out if it was all worth it or not. The last 4 or 5 months have been the hardest on me because of having to learn all the different programs and software and a whole bunch of other things that have finally made my brain feel like jelly sliding around in that big cavity I call my skull. (Chuckle)

I really didn’t realize what I was getting myself into when I jumped onto this happy hay ride of mine and thought “How hard can it be to self publish?”

Well I have survived the hardest part of  this trial by relentlessly jammin the right side of my brain with so much information that I feel I’ve  melted into a jellified tub of goo. I’ve been slaving away for 15 to 18 hours a day of doing nothing but constant crammin of information into this 50 year old glob of gray matter that I call a brain. The big revelation for me is that I’m just getting too old for this, or am I?

As I sit here workin’ and sipping on my bottle ArtJuice from Monavie  trying to replenish all the brain cells that I have mutilated in the last six months, I really believe if it were not for this crazy jungle juice my sanity probably would not be in tact. I swear by it. I’ve learned so much about creating eBooks, videos, editing html,  ftp, http, https, seo, ceo, ocs and, ee ii, ee ii, ooohhhhh! ,  quick gimme that  friggen ArtJuice again I’m starting to have a melt down …

Haven’t you ever just sat back after a long day of brain straining stuff and just wanted to change into a plain white shirts and pocket protectors and reach for that paintbrush?  There’s this sense of peace when I paint. I love it. I may have to be all modern and blog but I’ll be the first to tell you I’m far more happy with a brush in my hand and paint on my hands.

Can any other  Artists out here relate to what I’m sayin?

  1. Hi Art,
    How are you? I hope you are well. I don’t know how I stumbled on your site but I have to say I am very impressed. If it hasn’t been so slow these days I don’t know how you would have found the time to do all this. You must have a staff of twenty people working for you. Anyway, Bravo on what you have acomplished ! I wish you alot of success with your new venture into teaching and sellin dvd’s. I have been around this business about as long as you too and agree with you on many of your comments about what has happened in to this industry.

    Warm Regards,
    Eric Spiegel
