The Shrinking Man Project

Behind the mic

It feels like I’ve been able to get a lot done this past week. I’ve got a contract for a new voicework project, although I’ve not been given leave to identify the project yet. And that has gotten me back behind the mic again for something more than the Balticon 47 Wrap up. This weekend I recorded auditions for three new Audio Drama. Well, actually I think one of them is a continuing project that was in need of new cast members.

A lot can change in a year, and yet, a year can speed by you so fast, leaving so much undone.

This time last year, I was looking back at what I had done since my last birthday, and making plans for how I was going to move forward over the next year. Looking at it now, it sure seems like a lot of the things I had planned out last year didn’t end up happening. At least, the way things developed certainly was not what I originally planned. Whether that will turn out to be for good or for ill, time will tell. Perhaps I’ll know next year.

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.

In the previous installment, I talked about the wonderful people who filled my Balticon Weekend. I wasn’t able to mention everyone who made the weekend a memorable event, but I tried to address as many as I could. I probably should address some of the folks I left out, but instead, I want to move on to some of the more memorable events of the weekend that made it the incredibly special experience that it was. I won’t mention every panel we attended, but I would like to point out that there will be a Balticon 47 Wrap-up, and this year’s Wrap-up should feature about 20 episodes of content. I still have to get permission to make sure I can release some of the audio, and work out some deals on the release of some content.

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.

Time once again for another episode in the Balticon 46 wrap up. This episode is a recording from the panel WordPress 101. Terri “Flynnstress” Vernon moderates the panel featuring Chooch Schubert from the band Ditched by Kate, Gary Lester from Channel 37, and yours truly. In this panel we talk about WordPress, why we use it, and how it can help you manage your online content. WordPress is a very powerful tool, made more powerful by the many plug-ins that expand its capabilities.
