The Shrinking Man Project

Welcome to part seven of the Balticon 47 Wrap up. This week’s episode is from my other podcast, The Shrinking Man Project. It is a live Special episode featuring the return of three of last year’s guests, Starla HuchtonLauren “Scribe” Harris, and Veronica GiguereJustin Macumber was also scheduled to attend, but he was called home for an emergency, and unfortunately we didn’t find out that he’d left the con until after the recording. Like last year, This episode is a simultaneous release with The Shrinking Man Project. So, if you’re subscribed to both feeds, you’ll get the same episode twice. If you’re not subscribed to The Shrinking Man Project, you should check it out. There is lots of good content over there. The topic for this year was pulling out of a slump, both creatively, and in terms of keeping with your diet or exercise regimen. Show notes below the cut.

It’s #FlashbackFriday! It is isn’t it? Yes, yes it is! And it is time for another episode from The Wayback Machine! We’re turning the clock back to June 3rd, 2011 and an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. The plan for this episode was to feature the live recording of The Shrinking Man Project, but the recording suffered a couple of power failures, so this is a regular episode of the podcast featuring audio recorded on Monday afternoon at Balticon 45. You can hear in the audio that all of our voices were very hoarse for talking all weekend long. Our topic for Balticon was Exercise and Creativity.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to the live show.

Enjoy the show. See you next time!

Oops! Looks like somehow I overshot #FlashbackFriday. So instead we’ve got um… uh… #MasterFeedMonday? Yeah. Something like that.

So, anyway. Today the Wayback Machine takes us to May 27th, 2011, and the last episode of The Shrinking Man Project before Balticon 45. This episode was actually released right before Balticon began and includes a run-down of my Balticon preparations, and a review of my Balticon 45 panel schedule.

The promo for this episode is The Seekrit Projeckt podcast, bringing great projects out of obscurity.

Enjoy the show. See you next time!

Time once again for #FlashbackFriday! Today we’re going back to May 18th, 2011 for another episode of The Shrinking Man Project. With Balticon looming on the horizon it seemed a good idea to address different ways to get through a convention without laying waste to your weight loss program. These suggestion should be good for upcoming conventions as well.

This week’s promo is from Thomas Reed and his series of Bitstrips web cartoons.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!

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.

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!

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.

Oh, wait, I think that is supposed to be “What I’m doing at Balticon 46!”

No, on second thought, I think I may have gotten it right the first time.

Bit by bit, my schedule for Balticon 46 has come together, and now I am finally ready to share it in all of its titanic glory! And this year really is titanic. Somehow, when I said that I was willing to do up to 3 panels a day, it got interpreted as 3 panels for each day. Yes, I’m doing twelve panels this year! Plus a reading! The worst part? When I looked over the panels to see what I could back out of… I couldn’t find anything. All of my panels are either things I’d already agreed to do, cool subjects, or a chance to branch out into new areas and break out of the “comfort zone”.  So, if you want to see where I’ll be at this year’s Balticon, just click the link and get ready to make some notes. There’s a LOT!

Today we have another trip on the Wayback Machine! We’re going back just a little over a year from now, to April 20th, 2011. This was right when I first hit the plateau that I’m still struggling with. It also happens to be right before I discovered that I had a blood clot in my right arm. I’m surprised that it took until now for me to begin to wonder if the two are related. I shall have to do some research.

For now, enjoy the show, and a glimpse into the past.
