No. No, I did not. How silly of me.

I got interviewed in June. Jim Crawford, a friend of mine who recently turned horror author interviewed me last month for his blog Blood Soaked and Writing. Jim has been out of work for a bit and has thrown himself into freelance writing, having turned out two horror novels, doing daily zombie hunter fiction on his blog, and doing regular posts on writing over at NewbieWriters.com. I still don’t know why Jim wanted to interview me, but I was happy to answer his questions. The interview actually went live on June 21st, and I can’t believe that I’ve let over two weeks slip by without mentioning it here. I guess I really need to get back on the ball.

Anywho, go check out the interview, and let me know what you think. I’m sure Jim would be happy to see your comments, too.

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.

Hey, folks.

Remember back when I would pretend that I had this time machine, and every so often, I’d post on here about cranking it up and going back to visiting some point in the past and I’d play the audio from a podcast I did online and pull out a bunch of really funny lines from the show?

Remember that? Let’s do that again!

Balticon 46 was a BLAST! I had a very good time, saw a lot of old friends, made some new ones, and managed to survive all my panels! In addition to a lot of good memories, I came home with a lot of recorded audio. It is going to take me a while to sift through everything, so I’m going to be releasing it in pieces.

In fact, I’m going to be starting a new feed for content coming out of Balticon. This post is going to be the first part of that feed. If you’re actually subscribed to the Master Feed, you’ll still be getting this content there, but if you just want to pick up the Balticon Goodies, you’ll want to subscribe to the Balticon feed. Once the feed is set up, I’ll edit this post and it will go here: feed://swimmingcatstudios.com/category/balticon/feed/

This feed won’t be advertised in iTunes, you’ll need to come here to find it and subscribe. It’s just our little secret. I’ll also be starting another new feed, but there will be more about that, after the cut. [click to continue…]

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.

Once again the Wayback Machine has sputtered to life, taking us on a trip into podcasting past. Today’s adventure down memory lane takes us to April 16, 2011, where we will bear witness to the release of Episode 32 of Galley Table! In this episode we’re talking with Paulette Jaxton about her book The Empress Sword, and the place that various fantasy tropes take in the book.

Starting the week of right this week with another trip via the Wayback Machine! Today we’re visiting April 13, 2011 and a return of Philosophy to The Shrinking Man Project. This episode discusses the way most people set unrealistic deadlines for themselves. This sabotages your progress, and can lead to permanent damage. Even if you heard this one the first time around, you’ll probably want to give it another listen.

This episode also marks the beginning of my blood clot issues. Hasn’t been diagnosed yet, but I do talk about the issues I encountered because of the clot.

Enjoy the show.

Time once again to fire up the Wayback Machine and visit a podcast from the past. Today we are setting the clock back to April 10th, 2011, and listening in on an episode of the Galley Table. Since there were no ladies present on the podcast, we discussed comics with our guest Blake M. Petit, podcast novelist. We looked at comic books as an art form, and how they have moved into other forms of art, such as novels and movies.

Some trouble getting the Wayback Machine working this week, but I finally got it to kick over. Today’s trip into the past takes us to April 7th, 2011 and an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This episode’s featured promo is Katarina Maimer’s Wiener Blut. This episode comes from the beginning of the plateau that I spent most of last year struggling with. This is also the first episode where my wife has taken over the editing duties from me.

Enjoy the show.

Time for another trip with The Wayback Machine, folks! Today’s trip takes us back to April 1st, 2011 for an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This is a check in episode, but it includes the excellent promo for Brand Gamblin’s podcast novel, The Hidden Institute. This is an excellent steampunk tale in a more modern version of a steampunk universe. If you haven’t given it  a listen, or a read, I recommend checking it out.
