R.I.P. JayDub

Rob reports on the loss of a good friend, who needed to go, and references the unsettled matter (in my mind and in some others) about what happens next, and what we do in the meantime, and choosing a bad time of year to go, and shock, true shock and how these things can happen, and asks for and says a prayer, and a firm decision about a good line to draw, and a recommendation for the next pet we should all buy [and then inserts a song about our great hope, we will indeed live on forever, who’s this Afters group and what else are they about, wow].

RIP JayDub

LowProdHiQual

One and done (well more like two or three) and publish, Rob states as the goal, and then relates about the sad state of his home theater system and being slow to show my love how much her problems are my problems, and explains how uncertain the matter has been resolved, and then enters the main part of the show and speaks about The Lineman and a couple of early experiences and lessons learned, and finishes by relating a discussion with Ms. S about what I’m doing and why I don’t promote this more, and her confusion, and my confusion, and then [at 8:26 Dave] continues the conversation with the Evil Genius, and [slams in a track going out to my brother who I’m really gonna miss, dude I do hope you had the time of your life] and finally finishes.

Absolutely Not Edited

Bible verse of the day is Proverbs 30:2 (NET)

Rob delivers a short, no-edit, no post-production, one-take episode, which contains a mention of Dave Winer (the father of podcasting) and successfully does not include any of Carlin’s 7 words, and incorporates discussion of sleep and the lack thereof, good news related to the near future, some (strenuous!) mental math about hours, plans to transition to graveyard, observation about what graveyard implies, a story about a co-worker’s mishap, and ends with a chestnut about unreliable Uber.

[In the end I could not stand to not do something, so I added a soundbed – Leaving Winter Behind by Bluetech]

TPIDNTY: My Real Need

I was surprised to find that my biggest personal prayer request sounds more like achieving a result and not overcoming on the way to it, one of those “listen to what you are saying” moments, and touches on previous visits to the hospital, and quits for the day (night).

Another First Day

The one where Rob reveals his new gig, and speaks to opening a new chapter doing something completely different than what has come before, and thanks his wonderful sister for all the support and encouragement, then discusses important choices in note paper, and last minute shopping, yielding a limited choice of materials, and then subsequently finding that in college I used wide ruled paper, and shares his hope that in 2016 there’s no need to keep paper written with a pen but instead expecting to take notes into the excellent Evernote, and then goes on to speak about Andrew Sullivan’s excellent essay My Distraction and recommends it for your edification, and cannot leave an episode go without mentioning podcast production and admits RRR hasn’t gone how he has expected but instead maybe the fancy editing isn’t required anymore with this show, and closes thinking about the last time he had a first day at a professional job.

[I cut this track on September 27 but then hit some technical difficulties… which are resolved… so here it is!]

Multi Day Extraveganza!

Wherein Rob fires up his new phone and returns to the airwaves once again, and confesses to be winging it with little prep, then explains what he means when he says “downtown office” and why a coffee shop office is nice to have, and plugs City Coffee and their great refill policy, and mentions going to the Oregon flagship Apple store and needing to work a little harder to learn the power of the 6S+, and then moves into funding his eTrade account and talking about Wall Street and the Motley Fool 4Q picks Amazon, Nike and Target and why he’s gonna place his wager, and then finally speaks to YOU, and Vitamin I, and learning to be a bike builder and doing it wrong, and swearing all over the place, and starts trying to wrap up the ep way too early, and then plugs the brilliant Overcast, and wanting to make a secret feed and why it is needed, and explains what made me hit record and being so very happy with the integration between his iPhone and his stereo and the amazing functionality of the buttons on the steering wheel and the Overcast skippy buttons, and recommends you buy the stuff I am using because it’s too too nice, and makes a second mention of quitting recording, and begs for feedback, and that quote from Theodore Roosevelt, “comparison is the thief of joy” and then bootlegs a nice track, and asks you a good question but doesn’t answer it himself(?), and identifies one thing he has (perhaps) always done wrong with this amateur effort, and a desire to have an even more professional startup, and relates What I Would Rather Be Doing Today (playing Eve Online) and also wanting to make a ringtone which I used to be able to do easily enough and now not so much, and wishing I could be going to the dog park, and starting a new thing, and needing a playlist and a roll call (rogues gallery?), and welcomes Dee Bee to the show, and gets excited about the best idea at hand for a project, and making money from it, and a duh-obvious thing about it, and a clear definition of when you know your multi-day extravaganza is too long, and tries not to end on a low note as he speaks about vocations and jobs, so instead concludes with maxim versus rule (and gets Element 93’s name wrong, sorry) and then starts a contest asking, “what’s the first maxim of economics?” for which a prize will be awarded to a randomly drawn winner, and calls it good (great!).

TPIDNTY: Too Much Gaming, Not Enough Napping

Fresh out of his first time attending Downtown Bible Class, Rob reflects on the idea that we can know where our heart is by how we spend our time and energy, and confesses Eve Online is front and center and taking all the attention I can give it, and some experiences that start from the pew at Beaverton Foursquare, and explains how the experience playing the game has changed since praying for help to not worship an idol, and … shout out to the Big Cheese … and then Rob states that he hasn’t been sleeping well and needs to find a job and needs a nap and must wrap it up quickly.

[Wow these are the worst show notes ever and that says a lot! On the good side, this was complete one-take no-edit super-easy, excellent!]

New Rust-Free Tools

Bible verse of the day is 2 Peter 3:18
 
Wherein Rob states he will attempt to do good one-take show with no notes in front of him but only in his head, and confesses to playing a lot of Eve Online, but also looking for a job, settling into the new house and being a compliant husband, while he travels to downtown Portland, and notes that one takes a $60 gamble by thinking to not pay for parking, a good reason to take the MAX, and then reports progress looking for work, and feeling hopeful about ending the permanent vacation, and speaks to being ready to take a “pay the mortgage” job, and shares that he’s very hopeful the most recent job lead will yield an offer, and relates recording from Studio H courtesy Dad while I’ve loaned Studio P to my son, then mentions the new hardware, which seems SO CHOICE, and on to KMarie’s posing and wishing I could spend some virtual space time with TR and his sister, and an odd coincidence around a clip I made and TR finding it, and (finally) starts talking about Eve Online and relishing playing the game by chatting and not actually flying a ship like many others and invites you the listener to play and then checks the new setup in loud Studio H and mentions “you people” and Beavis and the proper way to address YOU when recording an podcast and then nails the landing, one-take success!

Pontification on Truths, Falsehoods, and Tinfoil Hats

Wherein Rob subjects new friends to the show by way of an interesting discussion with ArmyManJ, MasterS and TheBigG, which starts with conspiracy theories, which start with deficits and ends with living inside chain link fence, and fascism, and includes a mention of the classic Red Dawn [and whoa, they did a remake, must see!!],  and the tendency for history to repeat itself, and destroying stuff, and gun registration, and a really bad idea to get around it, and the requirement to train, and the apparently false notion that hammers are used more than pistols to kill people, and government intervention and control, and a near accurate Thomas Jefferson quote, and brainwashing training the next generation, and the notion that we can’t imagine how bad the trouble that we are in really is, and an allusion to The Front Men, and desensitization, and the thin blue line including the notion that power needs to sit in a tightly confined, not-corrupted space, and the likelihood of a military coup in the USA, and a sheriff who stated he would refuse to enforce new gun control laws and shifting baselines, and how to boil a frog, and the recent government shutdown and what Bill Whittle said about it, and the apparently false rumor that the oceans were closed, (which based on truth and reality shows, ha, and isn’t entirely inaccurate), and resourcefulness and community (love this part), and prepping and preppers.

[A new record for hyperlinks in the show notes!]

[Later a great point was made, the first step in preparing for the worst is getting your head around the fact that a bad thing could happen, and being prepared mentally to begin dealing with it. Would you be one of the ones that wastes time coming to terms with a disaster, or the far fewer that can quickly cope with the impact and start moving?]

Also that same day, we talked about 3D printers and guns. Click, Print, Gun looks a good view.

TPIDNTY: How Did We Do?

Rob reports what happened that caused him to try a little pledge drive effort, and how it went down, and what it did, and celebrating what does happen and not looking at what didn’t, and not being disappointed, and uncertainty about what’s the next best step, and the desire to not say “I as your agent will”, and a sincere request for more prayer, and laments not having simple tools at his disposal, and shares how the seasons change, and speak to labels and such, and my situation, and being bored, and figuring out why, and a tough realization, and sharing a part of somebody else’s story who won’t likely ever hear this, and being brought to our knees by our circumstances, and exhaustion, and why the airwaves might go silent soon, and includes Collide by Bebo Norman, which I think I have figured out what he is talking about in, and reports Krazy Cross’s great attitude and blessing to me, and a big thank you to those that got involved in making the pledge drive an unqualified success.

Stand Up was the song used in the pledge drive, shared with permission.
