  • Celebrity Death Bump

    When a formerly popular musician dies, I suddenly see a bunch of people posting in social media about them. They come back into the consciousness. And, many people are suddenly listening to the music again. Today it was Eddie Money. But, I’ve seen this trend for most. I bet it means more sales and listens […]

  • Podcasts updated for 2019

    Back in 2016, I did a post on the podcasts to which I was listening. About six months ago, I lost everything due to my cloud-based podcasting app becoming unreachable. It is weird to me how talking styles for radio news shows I listened to 15 years ago are unlistenable today. It makes me think […]

  • Podcasts

    Until recently I mostly eschewed podcasts. I only listen to the local NPR radio station as part of my morning alarm or driving somewhere.[1] Podcasts were often how I listened to the whole episode for something that was interesting. I did not really subscribe so much as list them and occasionally check for something. A […]

  • War of the Worlds

    Today seventy-five years ago, much of the United States freaked out. People fled their homes into the streets. Police, newspapers, and radio stations were overwhelmed with calls about an alien invasion. All because they believed a radio play was real. A radio play based on a book from 40 years prior and who was recently an […]

  • TED Tuesdays

    As I watch TED talks, the ones I wish to share will be scheduled to post here on Tuesdays. This has been happening the past few weeks, but I wanted to point it out in case anyone looking for them wishes to watch out for them. Also, I watched some of TEDxAtlanta live yesterday. All […]

  • Armed

    Devon Gundry – “Armed” from Justin Baldoni on Vimeo. First heard Devon at the Tennessee Baha’i School back in 2007. I bought his CD. It gets a spin when I need to contemplate. This one like so much of his music makes use of a small part of Baha’u’llah’s Writings. In this case from a […]

  • Blind Not Insane

    The National Federation of the Blind is upset about a movie portraying people who are blind as behaving badly. Pyyhkala, 36, of Boston, said he has read the book and seen parts of the film. He said his grievances stem from the film’s potential to sway public attitude about blindness. He said the movie exacerbates stereotypes […]

  • Praan

    Have Praan repeating over-n-over in my head…

  • All In – Instead of Nickel and Diming You

    5 & 10 is a nice place. aya1081 and brittsaqt invited me out for dinner with some others. Good trout and ‘tater pancake and desert. So now I am home and killing time before doing the maintenance for work tonight. At least that will be short. I won’t even get to catch up much on TiVo […]

  • Namboozo

    Andy pointed out Tshila this morning. Its by and for a former computer science student we knew at Valdosta State. Namboozo is the only song to work for me, but I am really impressed. The poetry works and impressed me. He also pointed out the videos for Namboozo and Scientific Love on Youtube.
