Content is king. That's what they say. And by 'they' I mean all those entrepreneurial people whose podcasts and Fast Company articles I can't stop consuming instead of getting on with some work. But hey, Procrastination Is Actually Good For You. Is probably the title of an article on a website somewhere.
So with the nights drawing in and the cold blade of winter lapping at my face I have launched headlong into a new season of DIE TRYING, my perennially under-watched workhorse of a vlog series. And this time I'm doubling down. WEEKLY. It's coming out weekly. You heard. The timing could not be better/worse as I'm currently spending my days writing creaky puns and delicious bon mots for a televisual clip show which means I am having to grasp my nemesis Dr Time Management by his rusty old horns.
And so far I'm winning. Inasmuch as my unwavering underdog outlook will allow me. 3 weeks and 3 episodes of Die Trying Season 2 have emerged fully formed to wander this scorched earth as my binary children. I hope I can continue with this level of consistency. My aim is also to broaden the remit of the new season such that it's not so myopically focused on comedy and includes some tasty life morsels* too. You know, so people outside of the UK's 127 hardcore comedy fans and my immediate family might watch it.
So grab a hot cup of happiness, settle into your couch or reclining armchair and watch the first 3 episodes on a big screen. You'll enjoy them more I promise. #cinematics. Also you can get whetted with the Season 2 teaser I made which almost gave me a bloody nose, black eye and has clearly inspired the new OK GO video jk lols they are incredible.
I'd really like to build this season. Bigger, better, faster, more. And for that I need your help. Spread the word. Tell a friend who might like the show. Post your favourite episodes to twitter, friend's FB walls, unattended Macbooks in the Apple store. And click that 'subscribe' button. Because when the number gets big enough YouTube will let me do fun things in their building. Which would be awesome.
Wrap up warm, drink hot drinks, hug a friend, kick up leaves, walk a dog, take a big glug of that cold air. It's gonna be a super fun winter. LET'S GO.
*me desperately trying to do fun things that are not 100% comedy-related. It's like teaching a robot to emote. We'll learn as we go.
