    Hi [chat] what's ...

    your dad is a psychopath

    I was talking a lot about the couple of arty things I made or was ready to make last night and the entire time I was like "Ell would be having a pretty strong reaction to this."

    I did (or at least started) a lot of really cool artsy things that I spent many hours on that were thrown out =/

    I'm not saying your dad was right to throw your stuff out but if you start an art project and stop working on it, after about 4-6 months, someone should really poke you to either finish or trash it. It's a service. People get all sunk cost about it but you can't just drown in a million half-completed projects.

    I moved out and put a bunch of shit in boxes to be sent to me, because I didn't need it RIGHT AWAY and it wouldn't fit in my tiny car.

    Some of those were thrown out.

    This wasn't all stuff just lying around.

    I just did a soundcheck with my new microphone and I thought I sounded like Dick Clark and my voice actually sounds like I'm a character from Jersey Shore and aaaaaaaack why does my voice have to sound so wiseguyish.

    I am getting legit angry about that.

    When I moved away from my dad in my teens, he refused to give me back my stuff, and so I lost everything I owned at the time.

    Fact One: Your voice bounces around and resonates in your head/sinuses and sounds wildly different to you than it does to the rest of the world. This is fact.

    Fact Two: You are a much harsher judge of your own voice than the rest of the world.

    Fact Three: You need to practice the sheet out of a cadence and get some speech training in if you want to do speaking gigs regardless.

    and then they're actually right and you realize this so you hold it together long enough to make them leave but afterwards fall into a huge existential crisis

    Most successful podcasters and radio folks have "voices" that they affect purely for the radio/podcast. these voices are designed to be distinct, pleasing and easy to understand.

    If you want to talk about soccer, do so in a recording, listen to it back, figure out where you were flat, record again, see if you improved, and start honing your voice.

    This takes TIME.

    Yeah, sounds like a not great situation.

    I just think of how mad I got at my parents when they threw out some boxes of my stuff about a year after I moved out. I was mad but there really just was junk in there, stuff I wasn't realistically gonna pick up again. I eventually realized they were right when they said "well you hadn't talked about it in a year and when you were living home, you weren't using it then either".

    Sounds like this is different but my experience is that someone tossing a box of your stuff isn't always bad and sometimes something you need to have happen.
