A local on-and-off blogger of some
notoriety repute has convinced me to embark on an experiment that is contrary to my every impulse and instinct by correctly pointing out, “Yeah, but at first you felt the same way about blogging, too.”
Hear the word “dickhead” lingering unspoken between the” yeah” and the ”but?”
So here it is: his link to “On The Fence” (and here’s a link to subscribe in iTunes), a series of podcasts we’re trying. I just Skype in: Alesh does the technical work as well as whatever cutting and editing is required although I understand that these need to be kept to a minimum to preserve the spontaneity and unadulterated-ness of both content and ambiance. Or some such shit.
I keep insisting that we are neither expert nor interesting enough on any topic imaginable that anybody else would waste time listening. Like my cats, even I don’t even listen to myself most of the time. Furthermore, neither one of us has anything like a pleasing radio voice that can engage just on its tone and cadence.
To all these objections he insists I don’t know what I’m talking about.
That’s precisely my point! I reply.
So we’ll try this, and I’ll link it, and if you’re so moved you can listen and comment.
