We often assume that if things overcome difficulty to start on a good foot, they are going to be successful. But great flowers can grow in terrible soil, and great soil can breed nothing but weeds. Many a crazed believer has followed their beliefs to a terrible, logical end.. At least in Lovecraftian fiction..
Even if self-conflict is dismissed as semantic, perhaps it might have an edge of truth. Perhaps it sees truth from its vantage point. Perhaps, from a higher dimension of existence, it is the real thing, and you, the caustic, skeptical observer, you are the contradiction, the edge of existence.
A final wrap up with several of the Dog Days podcasters.
Getting ready for Dragon*Con, missing the drive, but catching RWBY. Good first day of vacation.
Beautiful. Wordless. Music.
An hour of music designed to take you from the minimal consciousness of pre-wake all the way to the first jolt of your morning java.
The WEIRD Show
Weird news, strange ideas and odd views.
The WEIRD Show is my weekly roundup of those things usually treated as marginalia, curious little stories that most just read, laugh at, and dispose of, or disturbing things that reveal just a little bit of what this universe might hold. It's produced each week for CHSR-FM 97.9 in Fredericton airing at 9am on Saturday mornings, or afterward as a podcast on theweirdshow.com.
Wandering Out Loud
It is not necessary to have any destination in mind, in order to wander into interesting places.
Wandering Out Loud is an occasional wander both through physical and mental space. I muse about the world from my own particularly odd point of view, seeking to both illuminate and understand. It's done for myself, but you are welcome to join me and wander alongside.
Does anyone understand podcasting yet?
Podcasting fascinates me, as a new genre, a new medium, a new social media and a new way of communicating.
Occasionally, these fascinations turn into a podcast or blog post at one of my other blogs, Understanding Podcasting.
