A Reasonable Opinion…

Episode 1: The Gillette ad.

This is the first in an ongoing series where I plan to form a reasonable opinion regarding current stories in the news.

The first podcast explores the controversial Gillette ad (short film) that went up a few days ago. In this blog post I discuss my thoughts about the ad and subsequent backlash.

I find the backlash to be more interesting than the ad itself.

Feed back and discussion are appreciated.

Episode 2

The Company Man podcast

I think I’m figuring out the podcasting process.

In time this will get smoother and more consistent and as a result, I think the content will improve. Fighting my own ignorance at the moment.

Episode 2. The Company Man

Well, it’s a start…

I like the lamp. Not sure why. I think if fires out positive vibes or something.

The first podcast, well the first on Libsyn, is up on the hosting site. I listened to it again and didn’t cringe nearly as much as I thought I would, which is good. I think I did a pretty decent job conveying my plans for the future and mindset that is directing those plans. I’ve submitted the RSS feed to Spotify, but as of yet, the podcast is not up on there. I also ran into issues publishing to iTunes.

I’ll get the kinks worked out and learn along the way. The link below takes you to the hosting service’s podcast player. Works well, loaded up and played within the browser without issue.

“The Deepest Demons”, short story/novella, novel thing is coming along nicely. Not sure where it is going or where it will end up, but it is going from my head to Scrivener, which is what I want (get it out of my head…). I’ve got an ending in mind and it’ll be interesting to see if survives in its current form, throughout the writing process. The ending scenario/idea, is what prompted the story in the first place. How does one get at the demons that torment them?

Next podcast will be recorded Sunday, with an upload that same day or shortly after. Looking forward to that!.

That’s all I’ve got today.

TGIF.

Update


I have a lot of things I’d like to do but there aren’t enough hours in the day. I know If you’re reading this your probably thinking, no shit buddy.  

I have uploaded a couple episodes of the UnreasonableMe podcast to Anchor. The service is simple and easy but I want more flexibility going forward. Anchor does all the distribution leg work for you. I’ve decided to take that on myself and since I have zero experience doing a podcast, there is a little bit of a learning curve. I’m good with that.

I’ve got several podcast planned and intend to complete them and ideally upload them this weekend.

“What are they going to be about?” Okay, okay calm down I’ll tell you.

I plant to do an intro podcast to layout my plans and the direction I plan to take going forward.

The next few will focus on the two short stories I’ve posted to the blog. I plan to look at the ideas that sparked each story and the creative juices that fueled them into being. Should be fun. The idea behind the blog/podcast, is that I’m using creative expression to meet and greet the demons that prevent me from being the person that is at peace within himself. I want to explore the problematic parts of my personality, understand them more and poke a little fun at them too. Like I said, this should be fun.

World peace is likely impossible, but inner peace seems within reach.

Stay tuned.
