The Bitter Truth is The Bitter Truth is on vacation. Summer Vacation. Or to be more on the nose, summer working my ass off while the kids are on vacation. Every day has been full of fun activities and memory making moments. Away from that there is still laundry, cleaning, lawn care and the endless search for a new job. So remember even thought I'm not posting daily or weekly, I'm still here. You will have to wait till August 27th (Kids back at school) for my thoughts on Travon Martin, The Royal Baby and Kanye going nuts. Trust me.. It will be worth the wait. And that's The Bitter Truth.
The Bitter Truth is I get frustrated very easily. And I hate creating in a void. For years I wrote/produced and performed in hundreds on shows. Some one man. Some sketch comedy troupes. Most pretty good. But at the end of the day it didn't lead to anything bigger. Half the point of being a creative artist was to progress up the show business ladder and get to the point where I could make a living as an "artist." That never really happened on the sale at which I imagined/dreamed it would. So I stopped making art.
But the other half the point of creating is because there is a voice inside me that gnaws away and forces me to do something. It's in my blood. In my heart. Nowadays I try to find outlets for it. I have my band Pacmaniac and we play shows. People seem to enjoy them. I sure the hell do. And there is my writing, which from time to time, has let me earn a living. I started this blog in hopes of it becoming my next creative outlet but lately feel like the void is back, and I'm creating for no one except myself and Adam Mars. Does anyone read these posts? If so please comment. Good or bad I would like to know that someone is out there. The feedback (or lack of it) will help me decide if I'm going to continue The Bitter Truth or stop. Since summer is full of kid related activities I don't expect to post much. Unless the inner voice comes gnawing and I can't stop it. Lately it's easier to ignore and that's The Bitter Truth.
