It's Snot Me

we know of an ancient radiation.
that haunts dismembered constellations,
a faintly glimmering radio station.
while frank sinatra sings stormy weather,
the flies and spiders get along together,
cobwebs fall on an old skipping record.


"Frank Sinatra," Cake.


So...it would seem the runaway mucous production has started again. I think that will have to be one of my production companies, Runaway Mucous Productions--maybe for the cheesy horror/sci-fi movies that will inevitably get made by me :-)

I finished the video for Tommy's basketball season last night (and stayed up way too late burning copies for eveyone on the team and the other 8 people that we know will want a copy).

In other news, I started the Microsoft 70-290 course-quite possibly the hardest of all Microsoft courses on my way to the MCSA that I'm trying to get. Work's paying for it, so that's cool. But it looks like it could be tough. I haven't been in a education mode (like real classes) for about 8 years or so. So, it should be interesting.

I am also happy to say that today is 1/2 price day at the thrift store, so with any luck there will be some good comedy gold tonight. In additional to some clothes for the family, I'm also going to incorporate a couple 'secret shopper items' that I'll be looking for. Namely vintage star wars swag, a turkey baster and something that's AS SEEN ON TV. Wish me luck. I think it's also time to re-certify the store for it's CSD certificate. See...in order to qualify for 'kick ass' thrift store status, there must be at least one copy of Lionel Richie's "Can't Slow Down" in some way shape or form. This insures that the quality of good used shite is up to my high standards.

I've also been kicking around the idea of starting a podcast/internet radio show. The premise is simple....take one of the albums from my shelf of vinyl....talk a little...play side one in its entirety..talk a little more...play side two in its entirety..talk a little more. Or maybe only play one side from 2 different albums. Not sure how it's all going to pan out yet. And I'd like to also have guests on the show. Maybe make it weekly (or bi-weekly, not sure yet). The guests could come on...talk about the album...first time they heard it...significance...that kind of thing. I've got a list of about 6 or 7 people that I'd want to have on the show (people I dig talking about music with...that kind of thing).

I don't know when this is going to happen, but I have carved out my niche in the blogoshpere for it http://sideonepodcast.blogspot.com

There's nothing there right now but a shell, so don't go expecting too much.I might try to get the first post up this weekend. We'll see how that shakes out.

And that's about all I got for now. I need to get back to work. So I'm gonna.

You know you can count on me for being a guest on your show and informing you of the connection between Duran Duran and Arcadia. :-P

I was hoping you'd be a regular guest!! :-)

The technology's just too easy now to not have fun like this. I may never be a DJ on the radio, but with this podcasting shite, it's the next best thing. :-)

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis. So...no, I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. So..um. Yeah. That's all I got.

Post Con-Fusion

It's 5:40 AM on a Wednesday. I have been up for an hour. I have an outline for a work in progress that I intended to work on this morning. I was in the middle of a chapter that I started at lunch and had every intention of continuing this morning. But, much like me, it seems the characters wanted to sleep in today. They wanted to just hunker under the covers as the rain danced its hypnotic melody on my roof. The swoosh swoosh swoosh of the ceiling fan keeping time with the rest of the nocturnal orchestra.

So, I shifted gears. I am taking  a course on getting more words on the page. Something that I want to do need to do if I am to get all of these books that are floating around in my head out in to the world. It's not so much that I think the whole world will love and adore them, although I certainly hope that is the case. No, it's more the fact that it's getting crowded up there. I need to get these words on the page for my own sanity as much as anything else.

Sanity,…
