A Shot of Jamieson, Episode 2.6 - Daniel Kolitz (printedinternet)
Tonight’s episode features legendarily elusive Tumblr superstar Daniel Kolitz, whose newest project is an absolutely brilliant blog called The Printed Internet. We talked about his old blog, his new blog, and a bunch of other random stuff. Please send him nice, encouraging asks and emails so he knows he was a fantastic guest.
Daniel also wrote the following paragraph for inclusion with the post:
As I type this Jamieson Cox is on mute, searching for the points in our just-ended conversation where I stopped myself and said “can you delete this part??” so that he can delete them. (If I recall correctly this was all of the parts; if I had my way this podcast would be exclusively comprised of Jamieson’s parts of this conversation, which mostly involved his saying ‘stop worrying’/’you’re doing fine’ etc, probably you will hear some of that.) You arrange a date with someone you’ve swapped OKCupid messages with, or you land a job interview in a tall glass building, and you spend the moments preceding that date/interview visualizing all the ways you will impress your potential romantic partner/employer via extended unpretentious soliloquies on, er, impressive smart-type stuff. But it’s hard to launch into quality extended unpretentious soliloquies when you keep thinking about how you might be sounding to the person you are talking to! Because instead of thinking of the subject at hand, you are thinking ‘am I sounding smart and unpretentious right now??’ to the point where you’d be a more effective conversationalist if you were just talking about what you were thinking, which is to say yourself, and oh man, I don’t know, Jamieson use your discretion in posting this paragraph, I guess I just wanted to say that I hopefully don’t usually sound so strained or uncomfortable, and definitely don’t usually punctuate my everyday conversation w/ commentary re: said everyday conversation.
Daniel is the best.
