Okay I initially went to title this post “OH GOD IT’S BEEN FIVE DAYS” because holy shit it’s been five days! But I’ve kind of just been doing stuff so, sorry not sorry? Also it’s 4am and I have to be up in 4.5 hours, so this is going to be a very quick post.
Yeah, so Russel and I finally got this podcast off the ground after having talked about making it for almost half a year at this point. We talk about book/film adaptations and stuff. First episode is here, along with links to the podcast platform of your choice: https://share.transistor.fm/s/e67f4025
It’s a relatively rough pilot, but we enjoyed making it and have plenty of ideas for how to make the next episode better, so I hope y’all stick with us.
Combobox stuff continues. We have three (3) new songs we’re working in for our set on 11/3. I also published our first newsletter ever, which is exciting to me.
More exciting is the fact that we got invited to play at another band’s show, which is a first for us! It’s great to not have to do all the organizing ourselves, but more importantly it’s cool to be recognized as part of the local music scene and be wanted by other bands.
My dear friend won box seats through her work, so guess who gets to see this show after all? It’s me! I’m excited and mostly just feeling extremely grateful to have friends who think of me with this sort of thing. I like being able to share our fortune with each other. It’s good community work.
Fake vs Fiction
I’m so sick of people responding to videos posted on social media by saying it’s “fake”.
Another word for that is fiction. It’s fiction. People tell jokes that aren’t real stories all the time and we laugh and move on. Can you imagine if someone’s telling a “A priest, a rabbi, and a satanist walk into a bar…” joke and some fucking mouthbreather pipes up, “Fake, that never happened”.
Yeah dude, that’s not the point. It’s not the point on tiktok or whatever either. It’s not a documentary.
There’s probably some lonelygirl15 commentary to be made, but as I mentioned earlier it’s late and I must get to bed, so I will leave it here.
See y’all next time.
