it’s a little show that says “i think i can, i think i can,” and it just keeps chugging away. jenny & i recorded our 5th episode of postcards from home tonight. it will be a couple of days before the entire episode is available, but for now you can click here for a preview.
so i wrote another story for NPR’s three minute fiction contest, and talked a co-worker into doing the same. we both wrote about something that we found at one time, but had NO intention of returning… that was the theme for round 11. if the judges pick one (or both) of our stories, i’ll post a link… if they don’t, i’ll still post them here.
kim wilde’s self titled debut album is my most recent vinyl record purchase. it originally came out in 1981. i bought it for $8 at vinyl renaissance’s new location which is a 5 minute walk from my house. i’ve seen music videos for two of the songs on it: kids in america and chequered love. kim never smiles but but there’s something upbeat in these songs that makes me wonder why this 80′s pop sound ever went away.
people are actually asking us when another episode of postcards from home will be up for grabs… well here you go! click here to listen to our 4th show about a postcard from toronto. if you have any comments on the show, leave them here or email us at: email@example.com
we had a great time showing everyone how to veg out with the makey makey at screenland last night. the theater will be looking for a new location after next week. it was the first time a public exhibition of mondo beep was done indoors. usually we have to take it to the streets on first fridays.
at 6pm tomorrow night i will take a few things from the mondo beep collection to the screenland theater. i’ll be making electronic glitchy sounds, summoning daft punk-like noise, and inviting others in the lobby to join me before the short films start @ 7pm. screenland will be looking for a new home after may 17. thanks to bonnie and jason for everything.
our niece, georgia, graduated from UNL this weekend with a psychology degree. later that day we ate at village inn and made each other laugh. here’s one joke that georgia told:
Q: what’s red and smells like blue paint?
A: red paint.
years ago an old friend gave me this set of salt and pepper shakers that look like a man and woman from hawaii. i always wanted to do something like a puppet show with them… but i never knew exactly what it would be. i got tired of waiting for a good idea, and recorded this.
30 years ago i received my first may basket. it was during my stint as a sandwich maker at mighty melt (a deli that used to be in the bel aire shopping center in joplin, mo). my boss gave me a basket full of candy, and said “happy may day!” that had never happened to me before… or since.
