Life is fascinating.
It’s complicated and hard — maybe even ultimately impossible — to understand.
And yet, we glimpse moments of clarity, when things make sense or seem to come together into a pattern that we can use, or at least recognize and avoid if necessary.
I don’t know what the world means, but it doesn’t stop me from wondering about it.
That’s why this blog is here: to allow me to wonder out loud. I have no set agenda, so you might see posts here reflecting on some of the music I’m listening to, or the book I’ve just finished reading. You might see an image, and just how tangentially I can possibly make my thinking with regards to that image.
You might find writing here, of fiction and of fact. I’m working on more fiction, and have one podcast book (Tainted Roses) available, as well as numerous short stories published through the Every Photo Tells… podcast. (Yes, I’m working on an eBook version, too.)
This place also serves as a hub of my activity, although I have a separate blog for my musings about the media of podcasting (Understanding Podcasting) and my Parsec-award-winning weekly radio show and podcast, The WEIRD Show. You’ll also find playlists and occasional episodes of my music show, CAFFEEN!, available for a limited time.
This site uses the little icon set called Silk, available from FamFamFam.
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.
