Kuiper replied to Jake's topic in Important If True EpisodesSince the show has been on hiatus, I decided to dive into the archives and do a complete re-listen, and damn if Jake and Chris didn't just nail the frustration of working in a creative field: Jake: When I read stuff that I wrote when I was younger, I'm actually really mad, because it just shows that my brain has hardened and I'm a worthless piece of shit who can't imagine anything and is not willing to or able to just actually poop an idea out of my brain onto a piece of paper and finish it because I'm actually able to be self-critical. Chris: You're too smart to know that your idea might be bad, but you're not actually smart enough to just have an incredible idea all the time. Jake: Yeah, it's a disaster. Chris: That's bad. Being an adult is terrible. Being an adult who's not a genius just kind of sucks. Every single word of this is true.
