Procrastination is spending 5 hours finding a kick drum sound

My boss at Energy Management Solutions never procrastinates. Anytime I think of an idea he hands me the phone and tells me to do it. I’ve never met anyone quite like that. I like to get things done but I’d say I do my share of fiddling and pondering. Sometimes when you sit down to make a song it’s way too easy to procrastinate. You have a playground of sounds and tools you can play with. Heck it all starts with a loop. A loop! Better stop listening to loops and get to the arrangement.

    nice video – from Ireland by the sounds of things too :D – I wouldnt call ‘doing the dishes’ procrastinating though, Id call that some major pro-active shit :p – I let em pile up to tower most of the time
