Super Target has Blue Diamonds

content: Oct 26, 2017 · podcast: Jan 19, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20171026 - Super Target has Blue Diamonds One time my brother ate a whole bag of walnuts. And my mom was furious. She still talks about it to this day even though said feeding happened sometime in the 80s. Apparently the walnuts were a gift to my mom from my grandpa during one of his nation-wide adventures. I think they came from out west but nobody knows for sure since he was known to disappear for weeks on end during his...


There's a gentleman we'll call Gary

content: Oct 17, 2017 · podcast: Jan 14, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20171017 - There's a gentleman we'll call Gary So we all know that our phones are a huge part of our lives. We take them pretty much every where. They say that they’re generally the first thing we look at in the morning and the last thing we look at before going to sleep. However, I’ve came across a situation where another’s phone usage has me bepuzzled and I wanted to get the worldly consensus. Yes, I realize that virtually all...


They deserve it

content: Oct 13, 2017 · podcast: Jan 11, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20171013 - They deserve it When I was drinking I would hurt people, because that’s what I did when I was drinking, and then I would feel bad and avoid them. Sometimes go out of my way not to see them. And then when the day came around that I did, I would hang my head in shame and hope that they had forgotten. My guilt would pile up like garbage. The trash can would be overflowing, shit falling on the floor, and I’d just ignore...


Steam Locomotive Musical

content: Jan 11, 2021 Video (MP4): 20210111 - Steam Locomotive Musical Audio (MP3): 20210111 - Steam Locomotive Musical Here we have a 1930s steam locomotive with drums, an upright bass, a couple of pianos, and a string section. The original video was over 18 minutes long so I chopped and rearranged to fit the music I put together. I guess this is the kinda thing I do in a pandemic. I had originally planned for the music to go with some winter driving footage but that didn’t pan out....

My gear in mouth

content: Oct 4, 2017 · podcast: Jan 7, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20171004 - My gear in mouth There’s this saying, “better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.” Sources have various versions, from Mark Twain to Abe Lincoln to that pesky critter King James. Anyways, who said it first and how they said it is irrelevant. It’s good. Me not chiming in with my ignorance makes the world a better place. There’s too much noise and bullshit out there already. So...


With the wrong key

content: Oct 2, 2017 · podcast: Jan 4, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20171002 - With the wrong key About an hour ago I put the wrong key in my back door. Like a moron. And then gave the knob a confident twist/push. And of course it wouldn’t turn. Or budge. It never does. With the wrong key. In that fatal moment I all but wanted to call a locksmith. To take over from there. Kinda like when I started digging an escape tunnel through the foundation in my basement. Sometimes you need to call the pros...


House Burning in Black and White

content: Dec 30, 2020 · podcast: Jan 1, 2021 Audio (MP3): 20201229 - House Burning in Black and White Video (MP4): 20201229 - House Burning in Black and White A few piano melodies while a house burns in black and white 🎹🔥🏠 Reminds me of the lower end of the Peanuts theme in certain parts. #diariespodcast #diariesvideo JFK Clone High · Dec 30, 2020 at 4:44 pm Hey is it okay if I use this video on my channel? It’s gonna be the same thing but a different shade tcr! · Dec 30,...


Fire hydrant flushing on the east side of Geneva

content: Sep 29, 2017 · podcast: Dec 31, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170929 - Fire hydrant flushing on the east side of Geneva This post originally appeared on the Facebook group, What's happening in Geneva, IL. I'm reposting here just in case someone decides the writing isn't as exceptional as the Campana flame wars. I mean discussions. Guys, they’re doing fire hydrant flushing on the east side of Geneva today and from what I gather the happening is primarily in neighborhoods around the Fox...


Relapse and reservations

content: Sep 4, 2017 · podcast: Dec 29, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170904 - Relapse and Reservations Video (MP4): 20170904 - Relapse and Reservations After I’d been sober for a number of years I relapsed. It wasn’t something that I thought was gonna happen. And also, it didn’t “just happen” either. So with that being said I feel qualified, I feel confident, I feel like I’m able to talk about relapse overall. I have experience with it. I didn’t have any deep, dark, dank secrets. I didn’t hold...


Pandemic Violins

content: Dec 26, 2020 Video (MP4): 20201226 - Pandemic Violins Audio (MP3): 20201226 - Pandemic Violins It's winter in a pandemic. It's Christmas time. I'm on vacation. I sit and write and record music. After listening to The Beatles sing about Eleanor Rigby on a two hour loop, I got hooked on violins stabbing and stomping about. The music sounds best with headphones. Nothing happens in the video. I needed something visual because most of the social medias don't do just audio. The...

Morning drinks mute the fires of hell

content: Aug 16, 2017 · podcast: Dec 22, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170816 - Morning drinks mute the fires of hell And then there was that one time when it was 8 or 8:15 in the morning. I had called in sick the last couple of days because I’d been drinking. Too much. I called in[1] that morning, too, because there wasn't any way I was going to be able to pull myself out of it. Not that day for sure. And Hell was especially hot that morning because I had not a drop to drink. Whatever I’d been...


Eagerly seeking a Republican to prepare my 2016 taxes

content: Jul 7, 2017 · podcast: Dec 21, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170707 - Eagerly seeking a Republican to prepare my 2016 taxes Yes, I still haven’t filed my taxes. No, I don’t need a condescending accountant attitude. There will be geometry involved. I’ve working with two 1095 cones and one 1099 sphere. Be aware: those cones have unequal line items and currently do not balance line for line. I’m a man, not a computer. The latter has my 1099 tax data and I’m fairly confident that reported...


Each and every time I started writing

content: Nov 24, 2017 · podcast: Dec 18, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20171124 - Each and every time I started writing People always say that the 12 steps are in order for a reason. I guess I never really paid that much attention to that statement until after I was in recovery for a year or so. Looking back on my experience with Step 4 I know there's no way in hell that I would've been able to write a searching and fearless moral inventory if I didn't have a concept of God that I believed in. I...


Mildy Seeking Mannequins

content: Oct 31, 2017 · podcast: Dec 16, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20171031 - Mildy Seeking Mannequins I still need to get a couple mannequins. I think about this often, at least daily. Well, maybe every other day. They’ll provide some kind of ambience, some kind of atmosphere that I need. In my house. Preferably the dining room. No, there’s nothing sexual or weird going on behind the scenes here. I’m not gonna drill any holes in them or have different outfits based on different seasons. I may,...


Let the cosmos be your guide

content: Sep 29, 2017 · podcast: Dec 14, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170929 - Let the cosmos be your guide Maggie and I found this note while having gelato at Graham's 318. Sometimes life pounds on my door, pounds with both hands to get my attention. But more often than not it’s just few taps, barely audible, just left of center. When I see those things out of the corner of my eye, the kind that perk my interest, it’s important that I take another look. Stay in that moment and focus. I don’t...


The first nine steps get us sober

content: Apr 14, 2017 · podcast: Dec 10, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170414 - The first nine steps get us sober The first nine steps get us sober. The last three keep us sober. It’s one of the two mindsets in recovery circles and I struggled with it for a long time. Not so much because I was in one camp or the other, but because I often find myself returning to Steps 6 and 7 in the here and now. Returning even though I've worked the "suggested program of recovery." I return to them when I’m...


Something I've never forgotten

content: Sep 21, 2017 · podcast: Dec 6, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170921 - Something I've never forgotten And then there was that one time when I was fresh outta high school and floundering around like a moron. I didn’t have a job and was whining offhandedly about being poor while over at my sister’s house. Whining like teenagers do because everything should've just been given to me without me putting in any effort. And then my sister’s friend, Don, said to me, “can you run a...


Gas cap flopping around

content: Sep 13, 2017 · podcast: Dec 5, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170913 - Gas cap flopping around Peeps, I was driving somewhere a few days back and was in a hurry. Of course. I'd stopped at the gas station a few minutes before and that had thrown me even more behind schedule. Of course. So I was sitting at this stoplight impatiently, rolling my eyes at the car line up before me. And then somebody knocks on my driver's side window. For a half second I thought it was the police since my...


Desperately seeking a Democrat for light housework

content: Jun 29, 2017 · podcast: Dec 4, 2020 Audio (MP3): 20170629 - Desperately seeking a Democrat for light housework Yes, you will be expected to clean. Netflix will be off-limits, however, you may bring headphones. But not your individualism. Independent thought is encouraged but keep moral outrage to yourself. This is a job not a march. Liberals are okay so long as you bring your own cleaning supplies. Hippies may also apply but will be required to check the hemp at the front...
