Nick Romeo & I met up to talk about his bands (Surviving the Odyssey, The Simulation Hypothesis & The Odd Endeavor) photography, recycled art and the importance of having a creative outlet. We also discuss my stereotype of Electronic music being part of the rave/drug scene, what it’s like living life as an artistic loner, trying to deal with criticism and the importance of failure. Nick was extremely open and candid in this interview as we discussed our views on marriage, kids, being empathetic people, what’s important in relationships and how to feel fulfilled in your life. Part 1 wraps up with Nick opening up about his wife’s life-threatening illness and what he went through emotionally. Huge thanks to Nick for being so open & honest during this interview. Look for part 2 next week!
Here is the second half of my conversation with Scott. We talk more about his blog Millions of Media Monkeys, our disdain for Twitter and how gaming has changed over the years. Scott also has entertaining party stories and an interesting experience he had with Nitrous. We also talk religion. Scott has some great insight into Mormonism and the effects organized religion has on our society. We wrap up talking about Atheism and what it means in his life. Huge thanks to Scott for this great conversation and be sure to check out his blog and the Facebook page. See you next week with a brand new episode!
Scott & I became friends through our local punk scene as kids. We reconnected to promote his new blog Millions of Media Monkeys and shoot the shit. Everything from retail jobs with shitty customers to the seedy underbelly of driving truck for a living. Scott is an excellent story teller and does a great job of portraying the truck stop prostitutes, ridiculous driving schedule and the disturbing way animals are transported for our consumption. This episode starts in as we are discussing the shooting of Marilyn Peterson in Oil City, almost a year ago exactly. A 68 year old disabled woman who was killed by police. This story is going to blow you away. Scott recounts the story and his role in bringing awareness to this situation, along with some other horrifiying stories about the local police department. This is a highly entertaining episode that I know you will love. Look for part 2 going up next week!
