This creativity could lead to some fun things.
Sometimes when you make something people like, you get asked to do something else.
Here is a list of some of the things that I hope my creativity will lead to, eventually.
1. A MacArthur Genius Grant
Yeah, this one won't happen.
You have to be really, really good at something to get one.
You can't apply for it. A secret group just decides to give you one.
They gave one to this guy.
I think he truly deserves it. He plays that mandolin so well. Plus he's dorky and charming.
But will I ever get one? I highly doubt it.
More info here.
2. Get Asked to Contribute to Things
I heard today that there's going to be a Bob's Burgers album.
There's over 100 songs on this thing. Lots are directly from the show, but some of them are covers by famous musicians.
I would have loved to have been on this album.
Or other things like this.
Or asked by musicians I like to add some vocals or guitar or something to a song for their new album.
Again, it probably won't happen. But maybe...
3. Playing Myself
Sometimes when you're a creative person you get asked to play yourself on TV shows and in movies.
The Simpsons and Family Guy do it a lot.
So does Sesame Street.
If I was ever to be on Sesame Street, I know just the Muppet I'd want to do my segment with:
4. Picking up Children/Kissing Babies
Politicians get to do it all the time.
I love children. When I see a cute one in a public place, and I don't know that child, I still feel like I should get to pick it up and give it a great big kiss on the cheek.
Maybe someday, if I get well-known for children's music, I'll get to do this kind of thing.
But Princess Melawesome pointed out that this might become a bad thing. People might start handing me babies even when I don't feel like holding them. That would suck.
But I still want to be able to do it. The same thing goes for dogs and cats and other cute things.
5. Fan Creations
I wish that stuff I made would inspire others.
I do cover songs sometimes, and I often send them to the musician I cover. I hope it flatters them and gives them a little ego boost. I want them to see it because if someone covered one of my songs I'd want to see it!
A few times the musicians I've covered have shared my cover. That's super cool!
So the few times someone has made something based on something I made, I share the heck out of it.
That still makes my day a little better when I think of it.
It especially means something when I don't know a person.
I wish my stuff would reach the right people and mean something to them.
That's it for now!
I hope some of these things happen to/for me eventually, and that all of your dreams come true!
