Haven't Been Here In A While

Yes, my foot is as big
as a small dog.
Hey look! It's a new episode of the SGMR podcast! Isn't it thrilling? No? Yeah, you're right. Catching up on all things unemployment and podcasting. You should send up comments and questions about the In Search Of... series to the Illuminati Social Club website. There's an email form on the side of the page. Yes, I'm enjoying podcasting very much.

Equipment Check

This episode not only features me, but also Stephanie. She may end up recording The Showhole remotely, so we had to do an equipment check before that happens. Anyway, we discuss all sorts of things, like unemployment, maternity leave, beer and wine glasses, and all sorts of other stuff. There is also some pet drama.

Getting Back To Normal

Here's a picture of the moon for no reason.
I am getting back to normal, regular, ordinary life after my trip down to Armpit for the eclipse. Stephanie is out of town this weekend for a wedding, but I will pick her up from the airport Sunday night. I reflect on the eclipse and the idea the having a scientific explanation for something doesn't make it less awesome. I have a dentist appointment coming up and more podcasts to record.

There Is No Dark Side Of The Moon, Really



I came down to Lebanon, TN, aka Armpit, to view the solar eclipse. It was amazing, incredible, awesome, and quite the spectacle. The audio is two clips, one recorded the evening before while I was in the hotel. The other is a not-so-great recording from my phone while were outside viewing the eclipse.

The audio in the second clip is not the greatest sounding, but there was a lot of reaction from both of us. Much of what you hear in this podcast will also have been heard on Up In This Brain.

[Podcast] The Fortnight Countdown

One fortnight, or two weeks, or fourteen days from today I will be in Armpit, Tennessee and hanging out in Up In This Brain Jason's backyard to watch the moon blot out the sun for a couple minutes. It is causing me a bit of anxiety because I really want to witness a total solar eclipse and this is my best chance (the odds of the Sun being out on April 8 of any year in Cleveland are slim to impossible).

And OK, I lied, it's up before we recorded Smooth Sailing.

Movie Monday: Duck and Cover

It's only a sunrise, not an atomic bomb
By the time I was growing up, the imminent threat of nuclear annihilation was either passed or mutually assured destruction was guaranteed, so protecting one's self would have been futile. We didn't practice the air raid drill and we weren't told to "duck and cover" except for a tornado. I can't help but think that if you were anywhere close to an atomic explosion you would be instantly vaporized. I could be wrong, though.

Here it is for your enjoyment, Duck and Cover...with a catchy jingle, too.

Lowered Expectations

A little, fuzzy caterpillar
I got a new computer and was setting it up as I recorded this. It has been a lovely weekend so far and hopefully I'll have the opportunity to get some yardwork done. I found some really cool puzzle game apps in my quest to find the movie The Room. The apps are also called the room, but they're puzzle games. I also saw the Ready Player One trailer and my thoughts on the idea of this movie haven't changed...they're going have to make some serious sacrifices to the story.
