Every creative type has opinions to offer about the process of making something that Is Not into something that Is. In the first installment of our first ever two-parter, Isaiah and Chris apply their unique brand of madcap misquoting to the mystical realm of creativity. Have you ever lived somewhere you absolutely Could Not create? Do you ever compulsively hack away at a project for hours on end because you just can't NOT? Is creativity really un oiseau rebelle, or should we all just buckle down and do the work? Tune in this week to hear our very own Christopher Mayell, tenor, attempt to break the world record** for most conversational instances of the word "like" within ten seconds!
**Previously held by Isaiah Bell, tenor
