Today I have been listening to old podcasts. Marc Maron with J Mascis, Maron with Rollins, etc. Recently I also re-watched We Jam Econo, the documentary about the Minutemen (the band, not the right-wing group). All that old hardcore stuff always makes me feel better and more confident about my own creative projects. And also reminds me to practice scales on my uke.
Right now I am listening to Best Coast. They make me feel good too.
