Adventures In Design (art design )

Bloodmilk was born of inspiration and desperation, imagine finishing school and entering the workforce right at the start of the most significant modern financial breakdown in US history. Now also picture at the same time losing an estranged parent that due to mental illness has been removed from your life but somehow shows up just to say goodbye. What would you do in this situation? Would you crack and crumble or would you find a creative voice that you never knew that you had? Would you take the unusual source of inspiration that your troubled father had given you and learn how to create something new in his honor?

On a brisk autumn night, at the stroke of midnight, we find this conversation among the treasures of the dead, now celebrated and collected by the living. Jess Schnabel the creator, curator, and craftsman of Bloodmilk invites us into her home, her collection, and her passion for the maiden voyage of Creep Week 2017. Jess shares with us her organic accident of creating her unique company, how she's managed to stay personal but anonymous at the same time and how creating products with a narrative gives everyone an excellent story to tell.

Featuring an all new introduction with Mark and David breaking down how this episode rose through the ranks to be one of the Best from 2017 (so far).

Start Today - Music Business Inspiration Podcast

On the first episode of Start Today co-hosts Mark Brickey and Biggie breakdown the 1989 Gorilla Biscuits track “Start Today” and go line by line trying to fully understand the songs greater meaning and influences that it had on their lives. However, before we get to breaking down the walls of this inspiration, first Mark provides a rich audio documentary explaining the influences, origin and history of the short lived New York Hard Core super group the Gorilla Biscuits. 

Talking Points

  • Controlling your temper, not blowing up like you used to and realizing work isn’t worth getting mad over. 
  • Understanding that you’re never too old to hangout and the importance of finding your tribe. 
  • Location, location, location, where you are plays a huge part in how you play. 
  • Staying one step ahead of your current career and always planning for the next big thing. 
  • Not just working hard, but working hard toward a focused life plan. 
  • Procrastinating solves nothing, only creates more work. 
  • There is no seniority in the arts, which leaves zero room for laziness. 
  • The importance of movement, keeping moving to keep surviving. 
  • Trusting your gut, you always know what’s right. 
  • Put in the hours, it will always show in the work.
  • The importance of saying sorry face to face. 
  • Time is your enemy, friend and greatest love. 

Circle of Trust

Mark talks about his lessons learned from both the song Start Today and the creating the first podcast episode. As well as plays audio that didn’t make the final public cut.
