So Local Pasco Saturday Music Cast, but on Sunday, Instead. October 2nd, 2016.

Eight months.  We’ve been making the Music Cast for eight months, this week.  The very first one was Lawless Intent.  We’ve only missed one, I think…But we ALSO fit in several TV shows at Tampa Bay Multimedia, as well.

Today, we feature Athan Monk for a second time, because he is in the middle of an extraordinary project, called The Baboon Room Challenge.

You should go check it out:  Get on Facebook, and in the search window, enter #baboonroomchallenge.  What will come up is an amazing set of videos and written posts by the dozens of people that are participating.  What IS the baboon room challenge?

Simple:  Do something, every day, for thirty days.  Here, let Corey explain it:

It’s kind of a big deal. When I searched in in Facebook to get ready for this blog post, this is what came up:

Yes, indeed!  EIGHTY FOUR THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN THIS.
Yes, indeed! EIGHTY FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN THIS.

Eighty.Five.THOUSAND.
Anything.  Write a poem.  Take a walk. Do three pullups.  Ask someone the most interesting thing about them, or that has happened to them.  But do that new thing, EVERY.DAY. for thirty days.  It’s an exercise designed to creat new habits.  Doesn’t even matter what it is.  Just do it.

Athan picked a pretty ambitious one:  Make a music video, every day…A video containing freshly recorded music content.  Some of these are covers, but most are originals.  In fact, some are not even complete songs.

So, listen in, as Athan gives us a brave and vulnerable look at his creative process.  Then I STRONGLY recommend you go watch all of the videos…They’re pretty amazing:
