Create: For What It’s Worth Episode 052

Remember, this is free. I could be charging tens of dollars for something like this but out of the kindness of my heart, I have foregone any betterment of my life. This is a damn good week. Heroes, winners, scum, and complete losers. We don’t discriminate. Let’s talk truth of winter camping, Wonder Boys, my mastery of the smoothie, Good vs great photography, sea lions with social disease, and why my father was a good co-pilot. Dreaming, mail fraud, why I just got revenge on Australia, and what I learned from a three-camera shoot. And finally, the life-changing balance that comes from a great puke. Lock and load!

  1. Oh the puke stories.
    Mine involved tequilla, police and kids throwing rocks at my head, lol.
    Another great podcast
    Love these damn things

  2. Hi Dan,
    I’ve a favour ( yes, you do spell it incorrectly ) to ask.
    Could I make a booking to come along in one of your dreams?
    I’ll be quiet and promise not to intrude.
    Would it be ok if I also bring along a nymph dressed in a bikini with a wide brimmed hat?
    One last thing, could it be a snow dream as I’ll bring real Tim Tams as they taste better cold and the nymph loves the cold.

    1. Steve,
      I had a good one last night. Will relay in next podcast. I was awesome. There were no nymphs cause even in the dream we all know they aren’t real. YouTube or not.

  3. I didn’t expect ageism in the podcast today, but who gives a crap what you think, I’m 69 and going to do my book project anyway, and it may be the only one I ever do cause I could die tomorrow from food poisoning, or bad shrimp, or one of those weird ingredients in your smoothie.

  4. Oh man, food poisoning, no bueno. Curious about your 3 camera film. I don’t know how I got there, but I saw something a few days ago about Premiere’s (or another program, not sure) ability to quickly sync multi-cams. I guess I’d never really thought about it before. You’ve probably got one main audio track, even if off multiple audio inputs, and multiple video angles. Do you sync it all up first? Seems like if you start In/Outs before adding to the timeline, things could get confusing. I’m getting a headache just thinking about it.

    I made a spontaneous purchase at the local co-op the other day. A massive photo essay by Lodestar on Wales. It cost more than I should be spending, but it’s quality work, and I’ve always wanted to go to Wales. It looks like a photo book, but the writing and the photos work in partnership. The photographers are clearly very good (much better than I am), but I think it was the writing from several different people that really sealed the deal. Some of it veered a little too closely to an overly romanticized “ahh, travel”, but for the most part, it was a really good collection of stories celebrating place, and the stories of the people inhabiting that place. It’s always people for me. And as you mentioned, it’s a time capsule.

    1. Scott,
      I am nowhere near understanding the sync but I know it’s there. This was still primitive but she loved it. All that matters.

  5. Another excellent podcast. Ocean pollution: Here in New jersey we used to get needles washing up on the beach. Things have cleaned up some but far from perfect. Photo books: I just got American Geography by Matt Black. It’s done by Magnum, and for $85 I was expecting a small book. This thing is huge…almost poster size and the photos are, in my humble opinion, really good.

    Thanks as always!

    1. Pau,
      Matt has been good for a long while. Ocean pollution is bad. And like all things here in America, we turn an issue like this into a political battle void of common sense and decency.

  6. My comment either disappeared or I don’t know what I’m doing (probably the latter). Another great podcast! Ocean pollution: here in New Jersey we used to get a lot needles washing up on the beach. That’s better but now we have people who just leave their trash behind when they go home. It’s awful. Photography books: I just got Matt Black’s American Geography from Magnum. For $85 i got an almost poster sized book. I was expecting something much smaller. The photos, in my humble opinion, are really well done.

    Thanks for all the work you put into the podcast and all your other outlets.

  7. “Hate, rage…and maybe a buffet at the end.” Yep, pretty much sums up married life.

    A puke story, but also a lot of “sweating” in this episode. Interesting themes.
