Growing up as an independent filmmaker is a strange thing.
We get to experience our parents’ house and see their parents as adults, but it’s all new territory for us.
We’re also forced to adapt to the expectations of an entire generation that grew up with the idea that the world could never be as it is today, that we’d never be rich and famous and that all that we wanted was to be able to play the game of music we grew up hearing.
We’re also at a time where it’s not just us, but anyone who grew up on the vinyl scene, or who has experienced a turnable in their life, is starting to question how we could have gotten to this point.
And so, the question has come up a lot in the years since I left home, from people who have heard of me to people who are considering leaving.
I’ve had conversations with people about leaving, and there’s always a lot of people who just want to keep the turntables.
I’m not going to let that happen.
But for me, I’m also going to stay.
It’s what I’m going to do with my life, and I’ve decided that I’m gonna leave this world and be a photographer.
I love this profession, and it’s going to be fun to be out of the industry, but I’m just not going for it.
And I’m really glad I decided to leave because I have no regrets.
I got to start somewhere.
I don’t know if it’s right for me.
But I know that I got a lot to learn from people like you.
So, as much as I’ve learned about the world and my own life, I want to share that knowledge with you.
Growing up, my parents were both turntablists.
They were the first ones who really grew up listening to the music of their youth.
I think the music really started to be influential in how I became who I am.
And the first person who really brought me into the world of film and music was my dad.
He was the one who taught me how to do the things I love to do, and to understand the world in a way that I’ve never been able to before.
It was through my dad that I started working on music.
He made me understand that I was going to need to make the best of it, and that you can’t just be a good artist and expect to make it big.
That was a big thing for me growing up, because it was just like, this is what I have to do to be successful, and you know what?
I’m an artist.
I was always the type of kid that was more interested in art and photography and film and whatever else, and if you were the type who was interested in those things, you could probably find a way to get out of it.
I didn’t really want to make music, because I was the type that didn’t like music.
But my dad, who was the kind of kid who always made music, said, I think you need to be an artist to do anything.
And it was definitely something that I would have loved to do if I hadn’t had a dad.
And my dad always said, if you’re going to have a father, you need a job.
And that’s what you need in this world.
He didn’t want me to just be an outcast, he wanted me to be a productive member of society.
And he made me realize that if you want to do something and make it, you have to be willing to do it.
So I had to learn how to be that type of person, and my dad taught me to think like that.
But he didn’t teach me to write music.
It wasn’t until my parents got married that I learned how to write my own music.
And they were really, really strict about what I could and couldn’t write.
They didn’t let me be an entertainer, but they didn’t keep me out of my own backyard.
And even though I did learn how that might work out, I was still very much a kid at heart.
So I really don’t have a choice.
I can’t write my music, and when I do, it’s usually a really shitty, shitty thing.
So when I did end up doing that, I just learned how, and so I’m still very grateful that I did.
And just to be clear, that was a very young age for me when I started making music, so I really did have to learn the ropes.
But even though my parents and my older brother, who is now in his mid-20s, were not turntblers, I remember my older sister being very supportive.
She told me to stay in the studio.
She encouraged me to get my hands dirty.
She taught me the basics of the craft, and she made sure I was aware of what
