peterbd says I am the G.o.a.T. — How could I not repost this?

Random things are random (obvi.), but they’re also often awesome. Tonight I got a random email from the elusive peterbd and it managed to redefine the term “awesomeness.”

There were/are “lols” aplenty!

20. joe is greater at creating electronic music than most people.

19. joe is better at creating electronic music than this guy: http://www.blackbookmag.com/polopoly_fs/1.54529.1352141269!/image/image.png_gen/derivatives/landscape_411/image.png

18. joe became the g.o.a.t without selling out and moving to new york

17. joe michael owens > terrell owens and his relatives

16. joe’s writing can be found in multiple places and none of it sucks because it’s impossible for joe to write anything shitty as evidenced by his non shitty writing resume

15. joe is the only man on earth that could wear overalls and still look smooth

14. if you type ‘joe michael owens’ into netflix, a documentary titled g.o.a.t: the true story of joseph michael owens will be your only result. this is an unofficial documentary that chronicles joe’s life as a young prodigy on his way to being the g.o.a.t. interviews include his friends, family, and those who witnessed his incredible rise to fame. the documentary currently has 4 1/2 stars on netflix. it was directed by steven spielberg

So I Was Thinking…

…about this blog/website.

I was also thinking of the other bazillion social media feeds to which I’ve attached my name: Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

I’m trying to figure out how to keep things from becoming redundant. This is trickier than it sounds.

My thought is to keep the blog updated once a week, Tumblr once a day, and Twitter, well, if you follow me (@JoeMOwens) you know keeping up with that won’t be a problem. Facebook, I’m just saying whatever to. It’ll probably get updated close to every day but it might not. We’ll see.

I’ve got a problem when it comes to parsing out what I want to post where. It causes me anxiety and paralysis by analysis.

I have to make sure I’m creating my share of content for InDigest and Specter, while also posting stuff on Cat13. Tricky, tricky…

This would be an entirely less significant problem if only I were a more prolific writer. But I’m not.

So we’ll just have to see how it goes…
