It’s been a few months since the last show… To celebrate the end of a 7 year on and off run of Everything and the Kitchen Sink podcast: Davian Dent , another serious music junkie shares his love of music with you. Many of us have forgotten the importance and the love of sharing music with each other.
Davian did not know that this was going to be the last show. To be honest, last week when I announced my newest episode on twitter and received no interactions or engagement, that is when knew that I reached the end of this journey. The world is big and the internet will overwhelm and suck you up.
As you all know, few years ago, my health took me on a serious down spiral. I had to take time off from doing the show, I called it quits, because I didn’t think I could ever get my normal life back. Life style changes like changing the amount of sleep made such a difference in my life. I need 8 to 10 hours sleep now. Every day. Working full time as a teacher, being a mom and needing that much sleep meant my time is very limited. But I still tried to continue try to bring you podcasts and new music through my hashtag #NoPantsRecordStoreShopping.
The time difference between my audience and myself had greatly impacted the way I could reach them . My ethos of not playing/promoting musicians without holding oneself accountable to information provided about them…is not favourable in the music community.
I burned some serious music community bridges by holding my view that if you play G.G. Allin you need to disclose to the audience his violent crimes towards women (that he was found guilty and served time for). To me, if you can’t acknowledge (you don’t have to agree, but acknowledgement is important) that kind of shit then you are a hypocrite to supporting the end of violence against/towards women. And I am tired of this free licence that musicians are given to be shitheads. And I am tired of the “free speech” and ‘it’s art” “I only like the music not the person” shit.
I am thankful for all the real friendships I have made over the years doing this. I am thankful that I had inspired so many little podcasters in Canada to get their SOCAN License and navigate resound licences to help bridge that gap from becoming less “pirate radio” and more about supporting the artists.
I am thankful I inspired others to go full DIY and code their own podcast for iTunes rather than take the easier way out and use another service put up a podcast.
Davian’s playlist made me cry.
It embodies the meaning of Everything and the Kitchen Sink from another music junkies perspective. And he finished it off with a Joe Strummer track.
