I saw this thing online last year where some guy kept track of how he spent every hour of 2016. So I gave it a try.
I expected that keeping track would make me more accountable to my time. It did not. I did find it helpful to see what I was doing on a given day, and it's both more convenient and less cumbersome than leafing through a diary to see what I was up to. Still, my logging tapered off until I gave up sometime in October for no reason.
My version of the chart also includes notes on what TV show or movie or game or book I was consuming, or what project or job I was working on. Your version is just a broad strokes of my year. Each color represents a kind of activity. To wit:
- Media Consumption (TV, Movies, Podcasts if that was mostly what I was doing, comics, probably some light reading)
- Comedy (performing or producing)
- Work (for others, for money)
- Wasted Time (mostly involving the internet)
- Gaming (video games, board games, room escapes, that sort of thing)
- Books (a maligned category that wasn't distinct enough from Media)
- Productive (work on personal projects, errands, exercise, cleaning, etc)
- Social Events not covered by the above
- Other (originally code for 'can't remember', eventually code for 'didn't bother')
- Time Travel (mostly through zones)
This week, join Gangbusters! for our third and final 3rd anniversary show, so named for its position as our 156th installment.
Gangbusters! happens every Friday night at 11pm in the upstairs theater of The Clubhouse.
I think the visual reference of this image might depend on how old you are.
Just under the wire (pictured), my subscribers have been sent their November issues of Not Art. Non subscribers will have to rely on finding one of the copies I've put aside for dropping off in Los Angeles comedy theaters or selling as back issues.
New subscribers have the opportunity to join at the following levels of interest:
- $3 - a hand-numbered copy of each new issue delivered to your home by the US Postal Service.
- $4 - a hand-numbered copy of each issue, delivered to your home by the US Postal Service, except you start at issue #1! Relive the whole thrilling experience of our first few months!
- $5 - a hand-numbered edition of your choosing of each new issue delivered to your home by the US Postal Service.
- $XX - a hand-numbered copy of each new issue delivered to your home by the US Postal Service, and your first delivery includes a copy of every back issue! (This becomes more expensive each month!)
- $26 - eBook edition. You receive an electronic copy of my physical chapbook / zine project each month, and also one physical copy is destroyed each month.
There's a real struggle between adding dozens of mildly amusing subscriber tiers and making the whole page too complicated for anyone to care about. I suspect that on the battleground of this internal conflict, I am losing.
(Also, there is no cover sketch video this month because I used a different method to create this month's cover.)
