I'm challenging myself to stream AND talk through my OHCs this month live at https://www.twitch.tv/ddrkirbyisq -- Talking through things can tend to disrupt and distract my creative process, so I'm trying to see if I can learn to sit with that and work around it.
You can catch this upload (and all of my "Making Of" videos) on my YouTube channel at this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL60CnXi9EAVEQbMlbN_KOoZMIP1gpkvzd
Leaving The Caveby Misael.K on Aug 27, 2020
You're at the bottom. The only way is up, and you're fully aware of that. Yet it doesn't make the task any simpler. The outside looks distant and indifferent, almost a different world from your perspective. You decide to take one step forward, and begin.

Dave's Cave 3: Silenceby ScootaLewis on Aug 27, 2020
Some 8 years ago, I joined OHC as a short-lived participant, at the height of my connection to a musical community. During that time, I wrote something of a vent piece for this compo, titled Dave's Cave. Generously, you might call it spoken word. More honestly, it was a reading of some silly ultraviolent short fiction.
I've never forgotten OHC, and while I may not have stuck around I've always wanted to come back and participate in some way. Occasionally I did. Today, I remembered OHC as I often do, and resolved to enter one last time, to finish the story of Dave. When I saw the images for tonight's theme, I knew I Had to.
To everyone who encouraged me back then, I may not have pursued music any further, but I did get a better mic. I moved out of my parents place, and I've become a much better, stronger person. I'm in a better place now, and I want to thank everyone here for being a light on that path, if only a faint one.
Shoutouts to sci, aka anosa, who brought me here.
