RIFF 1

S/FX: A LOUD CLUNK

JIM:
Hang on. Mr b?

MR B:
Yes, Mr Jim?

JIM:
I’m going to ask this only once. Have you been doing experiments with Jelly Trumpet again?

MR B;
No Mr Jim.

JIM:
Are you sure?

MR B:
Sure as…

JIM:
We’ve talked about this before Mr b. Now for the last time have you been experimenting on the podcast?

MR B:
What makes you think that?

JIM;
Well Mr b. If you look out the front window, you’ll see several 11th century Norman knights on horseback, each wearing chain mail covered with gambesons, that’s a quilted tunic. They have drawn swords, o’ and one of them is stabling Jelly Trumpet with a spear.

MR B:
[PRETENDING TO BE MYSTIFIED] How did they get there? Re-enactors possibly?

JIM;
What do you mean how did they get there? We’re the ones that have gone somewhere!

MR B:
France?

S/FX: DOOR BEING BATTERED

JIM:
Yes, France Mr b, sometime around 1150 AD is my guess. You’ve been using the time warp button again haven’t you? So, now we have Norman knights battering the Jelly Trumpet studio door. Which would, strongly, indicate that YOU, have landed us in 12th century France…again. Well?

MR B:
Sorry about that. It won’t happen again.

JIM:
You said that after the Alamo incident.

MR B:
Well, I am trying. It could be the keyboard, maybe it needs a software update and… well, it’s such fun!

JIM:
Well, [SOTTO VOCE] one day Mr b. How are we going to do a podcast about creativity in medieval France?

MR B:
Nothing’s stopping us.

JIM:
You’re right. OK moving on. It’s time for the trailer.

MR B:
Trailer time!

9 TRUMPETS OF CREATIVITY

JIM:
This season on Jelly Trumpet we’ll be talking about our creative checklist ‘The 9 Trumpets of Creativity’.

9 Ways of being more creative. A systematic way of getting the most out of your project or idea. You can use all of them or any combination that works for you!

So, each episode we’ll explore one trumpet. You can DOWNLOAD the ‘9 Trumpets of Creativity’ PDF from the Jelly Trumpet website. Get cracking!

In season 1 of Jelly Trumpet we delved into keeping your own journal about your experiences with creativity. We called the journal ‘Being Your Own Medicine’. The journal idea meaning you and only you can coach yourself into being as creative as possible.

In season 2 we’ve adapted a list of creative tools known as Osbourne’s Checklist or SCAMPER.

Why’ve we adapted it? Well, because Jelly Trumpet is about being more creative every day and making your creativity yours alone. Use what you like from the trumpets. Build your own. Get rid of what doesn’t work for you and add other tools, create your own creative armoury.

So, build your own lists and record what works for you in your journal ‘Being Your Own Medicine.’

So, here we go with No. 1 in our ‘9 Trumpets of Creativity’.

Put to other Uses
You have a thing or an idea. What else can you do with it? Where can you put it? Somewhere it doesn’t belong? Like using a fresh carrot to wedge open the kitchen door?

Say you own a coffee shop. You need to make more money. How can we put that to other uses? What’s the first thing that comes into your head? Turn it into a mobile device repair shop, that serves coffee perhaps?

Here’s a line about putting something to other uses by Eddie Izzard:

“When a bird gets sucked into an engine they call it ‘bird strike’. It’s not bird strike, it’s ‘engine suck’!” A fab joke from Eddie. Start a line and finish it by moving the opening to another use.

Like “I’ve done a bit of Latin in my time… but I can control it.”

I really am the worst impressionist…in the studio.

Artistic swimming, used to be called Synchronized swimming. We could find another use for that. Perhaps put Artistic Swimming in the winter Olympics. Artistic Swimming under ice?

In digital marketing terms this could be using print in some form. I once used a printed brochure to amass email subscribers. We used Facebook advertising; people got the brochure for free. Expensive but the idea brought in 30,000 subscribers in eighteen months.

The Takeaway:
Consider the multiple uses of a single idea, it can be an image or a thing. Ask yourself ‘How can I put this idea, image or thing to other uses?

S/FX: SOUNDS OF MONKS CHANTING GETTING CLOSER

JIM:
Mr b could you close the podcast door please?

MR B:
Sorry Jim. Miles away. Close the podcast door? Why?

JIM:
Because Mr b several Benedictine monks have walked in and I don’t like Latin.

MR B:
So?

JIM:
So…I can’t concentrate on the next bit of the show with Benedictine chants in the background.

MR B:
I like it. Perhaps some guitar and a drum loop or two…

JIM:
No Mr b. We don’t want to encourage them. imagine what our guests would say, wading through a cenobium of black habits emitting incense all over the studio.

MR B:
Point taken Mr Jim.

JIM;
And they’re wearing sandals.

MR B:
Sandals?

JIM:
You know I don’t like toes.

MR B:
Errrr…explain the toe thing again.

JIM:
Toes Mr b – they look like miniature naked piglets.

MR B:
As opposed to piglets wearing off the peg Pierre Cardin suits? Would that be OK?

A BEAT

JIM:
Yes.

A BEAT

MR B:
Why didn’t you say? OK. Pressing F12 and F3, pulling the lever and punching the steam pump.

S/FX: A STRANGE CLUNKY NOISE & STEAM ESCAPING

S/FX: THE CHANTING ENDS

JIM:
Thank fu…well, thank goodness.

ELEANAOR:
Monsieur!

MR B:
Who’s that?

JIM:
I was going to ask you.

MR B:
I asked first.

JIM:
YES YOU DID. YOU ALWAYS ASK FIRST…

ELEANOR:
Arrête vous!

JIM:
I’ve an idea.

MR B:
What are you going to do? I’ve got music to make you know…I’m a serious musician, sometimes.

JIM:
I’m taking her picture. Then I’m going to do an image search on Google…wait! We’re in medieval France.

MR B:
Yes. I’m fixing that! Google might be a bit slow by about a thousand years. I believe, in those days, they only had dial up modems.

JIM:
There was no Internet in 12th century France Mr b!

MR B:
Ahem!

JIM:
What?

MR B:
Tarra!

S/FX: SLIGHT JUDDERING SOUND

JIM:
We’re back in the present! Well done Mr b! O’…St Albans looks so lovely in the Spring.

MR B:
So, we have internet!

JIM:
Hurrah. Right then…

S/FX: CAMERA CLICKING

MR B:
The studio has broadband you know.

JIM:
O’.

MR B:
What?

JIM:
The lady would appear to be, well, errr Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine.

MR B:
That’s nice. You like a bit of history.

JIM:
I do. Yes. I like the medieval period a lot…Wait. We are in the present day and Eleanor of Aquitaine is here with us.

MR B:
Coffee Jim?

JIM:
That would be lovely. Mr b. What are we going to do with a medieval queen, in the present day, in our podcast?

MR B:
I’ll get the coffee.

ELEANOR:
Monsieur!

JIM:
Ici, err Jim, err, et, err, him is, err nouveau Mr b.

MR B:
Stranger and stranger…

JIM:
OK. We’ll sort this out later. We’ve a show to do you know! Now it’s time for…

TONY:
Challenge at home!

CHALLENGE AT HOME
This is an improv’ game. Walk around your house for two minutes. Point at an object and call that object the wrong name. So, for example, point at a chair and say out loud “Dog!”

Now follow this with two minutes of naming things as the previous thing.

For example, point, at a chair, say nothing, point at the second object a bottle of wine perhaps and say ‘chair.’

See how quickly you can do this. Don’t think! It’s even more fun if you have a second person who follows you around pointing at the object and naming it wrongly as you have just done.

It’s a mind-bender a little like a short koan. Koans usually trip your mind up with a paradox or riddle. This is like giving your logic a holiday. Your mind will get a jolt knowing that you don’t have to accept what is front of your eyes.

The Takeaway:
So, you’ve named an object wrongly or as the first thing. Can you put this silliness to other uses? Try it and have a laugh. Particularly fun with 2 – 3 people.

RIFF 3

S/FX: JELLY TRUMPET THEME

JIM:
Where is she?

MR B:
Who?

JIM:
[VERY SARCASTIC] The lady, queen in her own right, Eleanor of Aquitaine. You must remember? Big bright dress of shimmering silk and a crown?

MR B:
O’ yes. She’s by the coffee machine.

JIM:
We’ll have to take her back you know.

MR B:
Yes. Let’s do that.

JIM:
What are you doing now?

MR B:
Nothing.

JIM:
Then why have you chained a Justin Bieber dummy to a chair?

MR B:
It’s an experiment.

JIM:
Does that explain the bucket of apricot jam and that hose?

MR B:
Yes.

JIM:
I’ll leave you to it.

ELEANOR:
Café? Le diable! Qu’est-ce que c’est?

JIM:

Meet Mary ‘The Entrepreneur’ going about creating her online business.

The Scene:

The office of an established Search Engine Optimisation company.

This Episode; Mary, ‘The Entrepreneur’ meets Angry SEO Guy!

MARY:
So Dave, I want my business to be number one in Google for the word ‘cake’.

DAVE:
Pardon? Did you say ‘cake?’

MARY:
That’s right. That’s how SEO works doesn’t it? We choose the word and then you make us number one in Google.

DAVE:
No. It does not work like that. We have to look for keywords with intent, we do a lot of research, we create content…

MARY:
All I want is the word ‘cake.’

DAVE:
Well, it doesn’t…

MARY:
Come on Dave. Of course, you can do it.

DAVE:
What sort of cake?

MARY:
All of them.

DAVE:
Well, you’ll have to narrow it down. You can’t dominate the SERPs, sorry Search Engine Results Page…

MARY:
Is that Google?

DAVE:
WELL! [HE SIGHS DEEPLY]. Yes, SERPS means Google.

MARY:
Why didn’t you say?

DAVE:
I just did! Sorry. Let me start…again. What exactly is your start up business?

MARY:
Mainly cake.

CREATIVE RITUALS

TONY:
Creative Rituals!

JIM:
In this season we are giving an insight into how famous creative people, including writers and filmmakers go about their creative process.

These rituals are taken from a book ‘Daily Rituals’ by Mason Currey.

A friend of mine, Peter Freedman of Think Inc., a viral PR agency, recommended the book.

Anyway, the book is all about the rituals of well-known people, especially creatives.

This episode: Francis Bacon.
Francis Bacon loved to work in chaos, ‘agreeable interiors’ stifled his creativity. Here was a man who would eat 2 – 3 heavy restaurant meals a day, drink several bottles of wine and always had a late night.

BUT he always woke at first light and would paint for several hours before embarking on afternoons, evenings and nights of debauchery.

Be like Bacon. OK. Bit of a struggle for some of us. Live the life of a creative in your own way.

The Takeaway
What rituals do you have if any? Do they always work? How about recording and working on them in your journal? Can you make the rituals work for you quicker and make you more productive?

MR B:

JIM:
What do you suggest?

MR B:
I was thinking an extra sausage each episode.

JIM:
Agreed.

TONY:
Tales from Jim’s Medicine Journal!

TALES FROM JIM’S MEDICINE JOURNAL

JIM:
Not only does keeping a journal help you coach your own creativity it can be a place for solving knotty problems.

If you are a writer you can list tools and checklists, for ideas that make your writing different. Add inspirations and notes.

I’ve gone through many spells where I can’t write what I want to write. I was writing a sitcom script for a competition once. It was lacking. So, I looked up my Medicine Journal at a section I have for ‘Stuck in a Rut!’

I came across ‘Be An Animal’, a note from a book called Writing Down The Bones by Natalie Goldberg. Which is about being a writer even when you are not writing.

The note goes on ‘walk with an animal walk and take in everything around you as prey.’ Which I did. Ended up chasing a fox down the road. Nope. That would be silly. But it made me stop overthinking and take a rest. I went for a walk. Came back. Wrote with little thought and enjoyed what I wrote.

The Takeaway
Sometimes the answer is very obvious. But when you are a creative soul the obvious is not what you pay attention to and that’s a mistake. Give into the obvious, record it in your ‘medicine journal’ because you’re bound to do it again, like me!

Ways of Seeing!

JIM:
Ways of seeing. Like thinking, which contains different categories of thinking, critical, creative, big ideas etc, you can see in different ways.

When you are an artist you draw the positive shape. But you can also draw the negative shape. So, say you are drawing a tea pot you could look and draw the negative space which the handle goes around.

Just saying. Which different ways can you look at the same thing?
