To put it into Whedon-like terms: “what a crazy random happenstance!”
I’ve been trying to figure out how I can carve out a bit of time to put a show out from time to time. It’s a bit like being attacked by the blob: as soon as I carve a little space to move, it seeps in and a non-tasty jelly-like living substance fills it in.
According to the alignment of the planets (or the alignment of the atoms for you science-y types…), it isn’t in the cards.
(I have a hobby of twisting and distorting metaphors, something akin to warping funhouse mirrors made of shiny dreams..)
Maybe, in a month or two, I’ll be able to shove back the blob and get going again. At the very least, I hope to be over this cough/cold which has transformed my voice at different times from Edward James Olmos to Darth Vader on a fake-lung refresh day following a smoky Stormtrooper bachelor party from the night before. That’s when I have a voice, and it’s not stolen by pixies or goblins or vengeful magical sasquatches.
It was recently pointed out to me that TWS made the front page selection on iTunes in the US under the “Odd and Unusual” category. That’s pretty cool, but it’s timing rather sucks.
So, if you’re new here.. Hi! I’m Mark, the Encaffeinated ONE, your once and future host!
If you’re a current listener… Hi! I’m still Mark, the Encaffeinated ONE, your past and future host!
If you’re not a listener.. You might be lost. But you can always start listening, because even though the stories I cover have come and gone, they always come back, and there’s enough backlog that you probably won’t catch up to me until I’m back on the air.
Until I return fully, I’ll try to drop on the blog some of the interesting articles I run across all the time, even if they don’t make it to a show.
To paraphrase and mutate another Dr Horrible quote: “It’s a weird world, and I’ve just got to … talk about it!”
