What The Hell Is Going On?

This one took forever. Don’t know whether it was the topic or the timing, but I felt like i was looking for water in the middle of the ocean. It was everywhere and, frankly, overwhelming. What the hell is going on? The expanding topic. Infopocalypse. Computer generated opinions. Russian bots/trolls. M.I.T. study Twitterbots. Humans prefer the inaccurate. Facebook problem. Algorithmic anomaly. Misinformation uptick featuring The Russians. Make America hurt itself again. Internet...


Disappointed and Grateful

The dog’s name is Max. He recently became a member of the clan. He is big, rambunctious and not very well trained. I take some chances. Say “hello”, Max. The Elk Antler. Opening the package. If I die, thanks for listening. Grateful and disappointed? You can break your teeth. Didn’t chew my face off. Coulda made podcast history. When you reach a certain age. Dedicated to Trapper.


Foundscape #10- Escuche

This collage started out playful, but took a rather dark turn sonically. I just followed it. Featuring: Spanish records, steamboats, fruitflies, sirens, stools, snores, a door and more. Listen carefully. Fruitfly drum. Donde esta Juanita? Repeata. Cleaning out the van. Steamboat. Ambulance passing. Digital glitch. The Stool. The door.


Foundscape #9: I Gotta Rainbow

Been collecting and mixing this stuff for months. Finally had time to put it all together. You have messages. Get matter resolved. You’re sick. Walk electric. We have thousands of dollars. I have rainbows. Simple ideas. On other line. Andy New Port Richey. What he left? Health problems. Ummmmm. Heads up. I gotta rainbow. I’d like to know. I’ve had an issue. Nope. Running out of cool. Computer expired. Can’t stand…. Get my message? Maximum strange time.


Goodbye Homo Economicus

This year, Richard Thaler won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. His research points to the fact that humans are economically irrational. Homo Economicus is a simplifying construct that has, for years, been the basis of economic theory. It assumes all economic actors are “rational” and only interested in maximizing personal utility. That is not true. There’s this guy… Richard Thaler wins Nobel. Francis Edgeworth. Financial forecasters vs. weather forecasters. The Japanese...



Admittedly didactic and dark, this episode examines the ongoing attempts to dismantle signs of African-America success, thoughout American history. Next one will be lighter, it has to be. GENTILE. Undoing Obama’s actions. Dismantling African-Americam accomplishment. Black Wall Street destroyed. Rosewood, Florida. Bad logic. Good guy goes bad. Infidel Gun & Gear. Fortune Taylor’s name restored. Highways and stadiums displace communities. Baader Meinhof. Renaming Denali....


Charlottesville- A Turning Point?

The Right unites to fight to protect a statue of Robert E. Lee that he wouldn’t have wanted. Antifascists use violence to resist those promoting violence. Sure punching Nazis seems like fun, it is not very creative. Absurdism and satire may be a better approach. Robert E. Lee on Civil War monuments. Trump and the White-Nationalist code. Sean Patrick Nielsen (WVTF/Radio IQ). David Duke, Ronald Reagan. Blood and soil. No Nazis. False equivalency. We are Alt-Right. Justice...


Welcome to the Trumgle.

He’s broken me. Space. Trump Repealcare. Death. I sold the universe to a wealthy Russian once. Putin likes Trump. Ready to lie. Sell the lie. Pin Hands. Give Trump a chance. Pre-existing conditions. Welcome to the Trumgle.


The Firing of History

It is disturbing to feel the pull of the impending political crisis on one’s attention. Every attempt to turn one’s attention away for any length of time fails. It seems like we’ve entered a transitional time and the outcome(s) could be dire. Looking away feels like complicity. Russian interference: not just smoke. Comey’s firing. Putin’s disinformation technique. Trump and Russians. Trump’s attraction to powerful men. The Big Story. Russian relations. No Fuzz. They’re laughing at us....


Trump Sessions

Take disinformation, distractions and falsehoods run them through the Mind Thing and something resembling truth emerges. Do your job. Gotta work it. Ranting and raving. Good at sucking up people’s money. The leaks are real. FOX and Friends: Good drug-dealers. Incredible racist. The “Fake People.” Gout. Horrible agenda. Nuclear weapons. Chaos. Bad dudes. Sessions, Franken and the Russians. Mike Flynn. Wrestle the truth. Nothing to love. The leaks are real. The wall. Fighting...


Making a Better Zero

I am a registered Republican and, this being primary season, I’ve been inundated by political phone calls. I decided to take stuff that could have been annoying and turned it into a podcast. Scandal/Lie/Scandal. Gary Democrat. Help. How stupid. Rachel the Republican. Didn’t leave the right number. Sorry I’m not Nokia. Tatyana. Making a better zero. Republicans For Property. Vote for me. Stay Republican and cause difficulties voting. Congressman Grayson: What America needs right now....


We Could Be Stupid

February caught me up short. So, this episode got a little rushed. I’ve tried not to pay too much attention to the competitive interviewing process currently going on. But, I’ve not been having too much success, as you will hear. Attention. An inattentive driver reminds me of Donald Trump. Marco Rubio removes his gloves. Drunk Reagan. Someone attack me please. Magical thinking. Competitive interviewing. Ted Cruz: Basket Case. Stupid. Donald doesn’t know. Marco does stand up. Thanks go to...

Sand Spurs

This episode I discuss sand-spurs a perennial and proverbial thorn is my side. The way they respond to my actions gives the impression that they are intelligent and actively working to subvert my efforts to eradicate them from my yard.



Recorded during the tail end of around three weeks of powerful rainstorms. Climate change talk over excerpt ofSteve Reich’sIt’s Gonna Rain fromReich: Early Works - Come Out / Piano Phase / Clapping Music / It’s Gonna Rain.

Mackro Makes The Scene

Another last minute gathering. We do welcome newcomer Mackro who shares his plans for a project focusing on the music of 1970. We talk weather, politics and A.P. Mike’s creative output along with a bunch of other things. Mackro and me. A critical discussion of A.P. Mike’s latest creative projects. Brian has tech issues. Talking weather and daylight. Seattle. Pike’s Place. The presidential election featuring Donald Trump. Where is the Rock and Roll? Dance To This...

Stupid and Violent

This is my take on the shooting in Charleston South Carolina and the confederate battle flag. Also discussed are state’s rights, idiot logic and the media’s role in promoting ignorance. Dylann Roof. Charles Cotton N.R.A. board member, disingenuous or moron? South Carolina’s state’s rights flip flop. Imaginary Christian prosecution. There’s one sure way to get rich if you are an articulate black man. Idiot logic. Confounding Christ’s advice. Music break:Jump to Conclusionsby E.W. Jackson...

A Fredericks Foundscape Intro The bells of St. John’s Avian speculation Avian observations Slow flying objects

Touch Me, AP Mike

Touch Me, AP Mike A spur of the moment Skype gathering. We welcome some new people, reacquaint ourselves with some newer people and talk to some old people. Jeff and D.C. Pat. Mike is done eating. Randy Newman’s prescient. John Waters movies, Mike hates Robert Christgau’s memoir.

On Time

Time has been a topic I find myself coming back to frequently. I am about halfway through Douglas Rushkoff’s fascinating new book Present Shock and felt inspired to create this piece. Analog vs digital clocks. The relativity of time. Perception of time. Time on my hands. The Bicameral Mind. Consciousness changes over time. Analog vs. digital music. An inappropriate transference of hostility. Under the control of something else.

You’re a Good Guy, AP Mike

The Best Show was delayed. So we pulled the gang together on short notice. Mike dishes about his experiences during the recent live shows. Climate change in Florida is banned. We spend quite a bit of time talking about music and The Jinx. Stan knows how to think. Where’s Mike? Static. Mike on stage. Kevin Corrigan. Jack White/Elvis. Mike’s Deemployment. ">
