Podcast

This #FlashbackFriday, the Wayback Machine takes us to May 11th, 2011 and another installment of The Shrinking Man Project. In this episode I am getting back to my diet and exercise program after having a blood clot removed in April. And dealing with the pre-Balticon excitement.

The promo for this episode was J. Daniel Sawyer’s Free Will and Other Compulsions. The podcast was in progress two years ago, but soon fizzled while Dan focused on finishing writing the book. Now, the podcast is back in production as Dan looks into finishing off the Antithesis Progression. Hopefully we’ll be hearing new episodes soon.

Finally getting the chance to get the Wayback Machine going again for this week’s #FlashbackFriday. I hope that I’ll be able to keep this up for a while. Today’s jaunt into the past takes us back to May 6th of 2011, a date when Philosophy returned to the Shrinking Man Project. This is one of the most important Philosophy episodes I’ve ever done on The Shrinking Man Project, as it addresses all the pain and anguish that people put themselves through for the sake of a number on a scale. If you’ve ever found yourself fretting over the fact that you’re starving yourself and your clothes are falling off of your body, but the damned scale won’t budge! Well, this would probably be a good episode for you to listen to.

This episode also features a promo from Neil Colquhoun for his story Words from Walter. Walter is an undead hitman in Neil’s bizarre wold of supernatural Noir. If you like Noir, or horror, you’ll probably want to check this story out if you haven’t done so already.

With luck, you’ll see more from me next week ,and see another #FlashbackFriday episode next week. For now, enjoy the podcast! Talk to you later.

Time once again for something from the Wayback Machine. I’m actually going to try to make this a regular #FlashbackFriday event. We’ll just have to see how successful I am at keeping things scheduled.

Anywho, This Friday we are turning the clock back to May 5, 2011 to revisit an all crew episode of The Galley Table. In episode thirty-five, we’re talking about gods and their place in your story. We talk about some of our favorite deific figures in stories and how they are effectively, and non-effectively used. No matter your personal faith, we still feel that there is a place for god-like figures in literature.

I haven’t fired up the Wayback Machine in a while, and the backlog of episodes just keeps building up. Time to do something about that. So here we have another episode from podcasting’s past. Today’s trip takes up to May 2nd, 2001, and Episode 34 of  Galley Table. This episode didn’t have a guest, but was just the regular Galley Table crew talking about pushing beyond your boundaries and how that can affect your writing.

Hello, everyone! Today we have the next installment of the Balticon 46 wrap up. This is a Special Episode of my podcast The Shrinking Man Project, recorded Saturday morning during Balticon 46. This episode was originally a chance for me to do a cross-over with Nathan Lowell’s Talking on my Morning Walk podcast, also known as #tommw. In fact, if you listen to Nathan’s podcast, you’ve already heard this audio.

I hope this will help warm your hearts in the cold winter months, and you’ll be able to pick out some of the projects that we talk about.

Time for some walking and talking! Enjoy!

January is a time to look forward to the rest of the year. One of the things we look forward to each year, is Balticon! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Balticon is the Maryland Regional Science Fiction Convention put on each year by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society, or BSFS. Balticon is held each year on Memorial Day weekend in Hunt Valley, Maryland. So, in January, we start making plans…

A week has passed since my last update, and I haven’t been entirely idle. I have, however, narrowed down the scope of the projects that I’ve been working on to something more manageable. In 2012, I managed to start a number of new projects, but I didn’t really succeed in finishing off any of the ones that had carried over from 2011. Soooo… top priority right now is finish off existing projects before starting any of the new ones.

Fortunately, it looks like I just finished off one of those projects…

If you’ve been reading along here, you’ve seen me refer to a story that I’ve been writing for Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris’ Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. I’ve been referring to that story up until now, by the code name “Northern Mists”. Well, no more. Today I can finally reveal the true title, because today the Ministry released Tales from the Archives, Volume 2, Episode 7, “The Cross of Columba”, written and recorded by yours truly, audio editing and sound effects by my lovely wife Keetara, scoring by Tee Morris. And to put the cherry on top, the release date is Kee and my wedding anniversary!

Great merciful Elisabeth! It’s been three weeks since I’ve had a chance to drop a post over here. That’s way too long in my opinion. Then again, I’m not sure how much I really have to say about what is going on. Our main push is still getting the audio version of “Northern Mist” finished so that we can turn the audio over to Tee and Pip and they can finish it up and release it on Tales from the Archives, and we can stop using the code word “Northern Mist” and start using the real title. But progress has been slow due to health problems, insane schedules, and the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Perhaps I need to adjust my priorities…

Time once again for another trip through the Wayback Machine. Today we’re going back to April 26th, 2011, and an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This episode was right after they discovered the blood clot in my right arm, and it is a tale of woe, stupidity, and medical neglect. And my bad attempts to sound like the Beatles. Sorry about that folks. There’s other good stuff in there to make it worth putting up with my singing. Really.

So, just sit back, relax, and enjoy this little trip into the past.
