Rodcast Ep. 2: Muh Birthday Show

In this episode, I celebrate my birthday. It was weird growing up. My birthday, February 15th, had an inherent color scheme: Purple and green for Mardi Gras, and pink and red for Valentine’s Day. These holidays inevitably drew attention from what would otherwise be an opportunity to bask in narcissistic glory. So, I’m going to do just that right now.

Yay Eagles

Yay Eagles! I captured a bunch of video on Broad St. in Philadelphia immediately following the Eagles victory in Superbowl LII. I spliced some of it together on my phone and added my “Winning Makes Me Feel Good” song as a backing track. The city was sewn together with joy and celebration. It was messy; it was unpredictable; and it was a fantastic experience. It was a bit difficult finding a Lyft, though.

Enjoy… and congratulations, Eagles!

Fancy Feast Valentine

Well, another Valentine’s Day is upon us. I remember getting an insincere valentine from Denise Lynch in kindergarten, and not minding. She was cute. Her valentine was somber, with muted colors. Strange amid the pink and purple.

And now, it’s come to this. A song about embracing a cat as your valentine. I attempted to google St. Valentine, but muh autocomplete gave me https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine%27s_Day_Massacre.

I present my entry for Indaba’s “Baby-Making Music.”

Rodcast Ep. 1: CA Liner Notes I

Well, it’s my one-year WordPress anniversary, and boy did I surprise myself. I was just minding my own business when the annual receipt just rolled right into my inbox between the spam and propaganda. “Do I care?” I thought. “Should I do something?”

I eyed my new Memphis Blue microphone, thinking about how it might feel to direct utterances at it. And then I thought that this whole vision of “website as living-liner-notes” could be better. Rodcast was thusly born. It turns out that making a podcast was quite pleasant.
