What is ‘Good Art,’ Anyway?

Today is a very special day: it’s 8 1/2 years to the date of the very day The Quinn Spinn was conceived.

Through the years, we’ve had the chance to appreciate art — and especially, music — in all of its forms. All the while, we’ve tinkered with our own art form (this show), as we’ve experimented with different ways to communicate our truth.

In the process, we’ve learned that true art cannot be put into a box.

You Have No Time to Waste (Solo Mission #4)

“Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.” -Ray Kurzweil, The Age of Spiritual Machines

We all have finite opportunities — to create, to inspire, and to love. What are you doing with yours?

How are you spending your dash?

Why Do You Do It? (Solo Mission #3)

When our scheduled guest couldn’t make it for this episode, we decided to record an impromptu Solo Mission.

And so, today’s episode of The Quinn Spinn brings you a detailed, personal, yet simple message: whatever you’re doing, it has to be about something bigger than you.

QuaranTimes: The Debut of Z-Bro!

In case you haven’t heard, we’re filling the weeks without an episode of our official podcast, The Quinn Spinn, with QuaranTimes, a live stream broadcast featuring our OG Quinn Spinn family. Certainly, it’s a different side of the show, meant to keep things fun and light in these strange times of the ‘rona.

On this edition of QuaranTimes, Scotty Rock introduced us to his friend, Z-Bro, who brought plenty of fresh ideas to what wound up being an unpredictable episode. We get to know the new member of the family, continue the previous episode’s raging Kool-Aid Man debate, and even had time to get a little thoughtful and serious about relationships and self-assessment.

Did we mention that there’s also Stupid News, Something For Your Ears, Feelin’ Good with JD, and the return of L’s Inappropriate Word? Yup — it’s all here!

The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Thursday, January 30

The year was 2017. We were entrenched in the regional era of our fine publication in eastern Pennsylvania, with Music City’s bright neon lights not but a twinkle in our eyes.

One of the bands we kept coming back to was — and still is — Rofo Audio, who released a video for their song, “Inked.”
